Posted on 01/04/2006 9:42:24 PM PST by BillF
On Dec 30, the eve of New Year's eve, we had a great turnout of FReepers from the DC Chapter and beyond. As was true last week, the weather was quite mild for this time of year. This was FReep #37 as FReepers have countered the anti-troop hate group Code Pink at their weekly obscene anti-war blood dance outside Walter Reed Army Medical Center for 9 months now. FReepers brought New Year's noise-makers and party hats to celebrate the last FReep of 2005. We verbally-thrashed the Pinkos with First-Amendment-protected shouts and chants. We also occasionally used our noise-makers. As the Pinkos were leaving, a police officer told us that we had to keep it quiet, thus leading to this thread: POLICE ORDER D.C. CHAPTER'S PRO-TROOPS WALTER REED DEMONSTRATION SILENCED.
Code Pink is truly stuck in a quagmire as FReepers severely hinder the Pinkos' cruel attempts to manipulate severely wounded soldiers and relatives in hopes of finding those who will join the anti-war movement and break faith with the troops still fighting a ruthless enemy. Code Pink seems to be phasing out most of their participation in the protest and turning it over to other groups as the number of Code Pink women has diminished considerably.
Please join us this Friday, Jan. 6, at 6:30 pm per details below. Please also bump this thread to keep it on top. Stand up against the Pinkos who've endorsed "the Iraqi resistance" (as they call our enemy, see here and here), given money to the other side in Fallujah, and called our troops "killers" (search for the word "mothers" to get to the right location). Then, the Pinkos demonstrate at the hospital and pretend that they support our troops.
Your new year will not be complete until you FReep the Pinkos at Walter Reed. Make a New Year's Resolution to join us soon.
You don't need expensive gym equipment or a gym membership to keep the resolution. Just a couple hours on a Friday night. Be there for our troops, who faced snipers, IEDs, suicide bombers, and other dangers defending America in the War on Terror. The Pinkos may resolve to be even more despicable in 2006, but we can and will be there to counter their anti-troops, defeatist agenda.
We had coffee, hot chocolate, and various snacks on site.
The honor roll of those in attendance (lurkers are marked with an asterisk*):
Al from MD*, Albion Wilde, Apple Blossom, beandog, bmwcyle and daughter*, BufordP, Chef*, Coop, daughterofTGSL, Doctor Raoul, Dustin10thMountain, Jack Deth, Jimmy Valentines brother, Joan from MD* and son Gavin*, Justanobody, kristinn, Landry Fan, Mary from MD*, Paul*, PleaDeal, Sisku Hanne, SonOfTGSL, tgslTakoma, Tom the Redhunter, trooprally [Mr. and Mrs.], and BillF.
The event was so large that I can only present that part of the story that I saw. If you were there, please describe your own experiences at the FReep. Also, let me know if I publish your photo without your name or, worse, I mislabel you in a photo.
[CLICK ON A PHOTO TO OPEN A LARGER VERSION IN A NEW WINDOW if it has a border around it. If a photo doesn't have a border, it is not hyperlinked to a larger version. Click on another hyperlinked photo and its larger version should open in the same window that the first enlarged photo did. Or you can simply close the window with the enlarged photo and click on another photo in the report to open a new window with an enlarged photo. Note that some of the wider photos may open in a window wider than your screen and you can use a horizontal scroll bar to see parts. Photos will be interspersed in the report.
Photos were taken by bmwcyle (click here for his full outstanding collection of photos), PleaDeal (click here for her account and full outstanding collection of photos on her great blog), tgslTakoma (click here for her full outstanding collection of photos), and I. The photographer can be determined from the name of the photo. You can see that on hyperlinked photos (i.e., borders at edge) by running your mouse over them. On other photos, right click on the photo and click properties. The key is this: photos taken by bmwcyle begin with "Dbmw," photos taken by PleaDeal begin with "Dplea," photos taken by tgslTakoma begin with "Dtgsl," and photos of mine begin with "DSCN." I have cropped some of the photos of others.]

Opposed to our 29 patriots, the Pinkos managed to get at most 14 America-hating traitors and their well-meaning, but incredibly-misguided, dupes. The dupes do not realize that their Pinko organizers, who claim to support our troops, called our troops "killers" (search for the word "mothers" to get to the right location), endorse "the Iraqi resistance" (those killing and wounding our troops, see here and here), and have given money to "the other side" in Fallujah.
Our mood was elevated by our pride in the amazing accomplishments of our troops, overcoming great odds and making tremendous personal sacrifices to free the peoples of Iraq and Afghanistan, and establish the beginnings of representative governments in those long-oppressed countries. The Pinkos are ashamed of our troops and their successes. Indeed, the Pinkos hope for an American defeat in Iraq as indicated by their endorsement of "the Iraqi resistance" (Pinkos' term for our enemy, see here and here).

We were joined by two young man Paul and Chef, who happened upon the event and wanted to join in. One of them is finishing at West Point in the spring and plans on going into Army Aviation as does Joan's Army son, Gavin, who attended the FReep. The West Pointer chatted with Gavin, who will graduate with an ROTC officer's commission in the spring.
At least one soldier currently in Iraq has thanked Landry Fan by mentioning her blog and her FReeps at Walter Reed (see the soldier's great blog here). Kudos to the soldier Phil and all our brave troops for the great job they are doing in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere. Congrats to Landry Fan for her blog being so recognized. On another occasion, she was recently thanked by a patient in Walter Reed. He said that he could see the MOAB looking out his hospital window.
In the past, we've been told by medics who work at Walter Reed and by other patients that patients look out the windows for the MOAB, American flags, and FReepers. They are cheered by our presence. One medic told us that there are patients who are too badly injured to go to the windows, but they are encouraged when told by other patients and staff that the FReepers are out there thanking them for their sacrifice.
Lifting the spirits of our war-wounded heroes is what we aim to do. If you live in the area, please join us. If you really can't join us due to work, family, or medical reasons or you don't live in the area, you can help in other ways by contacting Landry Fan, PleaDeal, or Coop by FReepmail for ideas.
Landry Fan toots the eve of New Year's eve. A leftist
We had some fun using the First Amendment rights given us, at great cost and personal sacrifice, by the brave troops at Walter Reed and elsewhere around the world and by the veterans who preceded them. We used those First Amendment rights to peacefully and lawfully taunt the leftists who gather weekly to rub salt in the wounds of our war-wounded heroes.

You must hear the sound files below to appreciate why the Pinkos don't enjoy our presence and, as will be discussed below, likely called the police on us yet again. These are WAV format files.

Flotsam and jetsam assemble to torment war-wounded heroes, even though their own website has an article condemning war protests
at hospitals. Pinko Princess at far left was wearing his skirt again.
The mentioned article on Code Pink's website that condemns war protests at a military hospital (click here for the thread on FR) was written by an anti-war Vietnam Veteran, who was severely injured in Vietnam. That article included the following:
Rule 3: forget your moral questions about the war. Morality is for those who support the war and for those who oppose the war, not for those in the war. Those seriously wounded are still fighting the war so clam up about the immorality of this stupid war.
A corollary to this rule is never protest against a war in front of a military facility, especially a military hospital. That is a no-brainer. You demonstrate against those who made the policy to go to war, not against those who are sworn to carry out the order to go to war.
Talk about the Pinkos being stuck on stupid. They demonstrate for months at a hospital. They put up an article on their own website condemning such demonstrations. tgslTakoma posts about it in late October. Despite the fact that the Pinkos read our posts, they keep their self-condemning article on their website for months. As Pinko Perry might get his cat to scream, "When will they ever learn, when will they ever learn?"
Pinko Perry struck a new low note on his guitar. He led the Pinkos in singing "Knocking on Heaven's Door," the Bob Dylan song in which a lawman sings to his mother of his impending death from gunshot wounds. These Pinko scum sing this outside a hospital where some troops are fighting for their lives after suffering gunshot wounds. And they still pretend that they are not conducting psychological warfare against war-wounded heroes. And the Pinkos have the nerve to say that they support the troops.
Another view of the troop-hating group, whose hatred runs so deep that they wage psych-ops against
injured troops in a hospital, as the troops are fighting for their lives in many cases and working to heal.
DC Chief Pinko Gael Murphy came in a disguise, wearing black at right, instead of her usual pink. Meanwhile, she brings a double
for her (at left). What is that about? Did she think that after our months of peacefully countering them, we would suddenly unleash the
Halliburton turbo-spitball thrower at her? No, Murph and her body double remain safe from us, except for our pointed verbal barbs.
Did Gael Murphy learn about using body doubles from her friend Saddam?

Pinko Perry Guitar Guy sings in front of Quiet Zone sign.
Every week the Pinkos provide yet another example of unintended irony, beyond the absurd irony of them pretending to support troops that they viciously wage psychological warfare against.
Last week Crazy Arse Wipe Guy held a sign saying "support the troops, bring them home" even as he hatefully ranted disgusting libels about our troops routinely murdering innocents, raping, and torturing. Right, he supports the troops, just like the rest of the traitorous Pinkos.
This week Pinko Perry made the usual irony of his singing in a Pinko-designated Quiet Zone even more explicit. As shown in the photo above, he sang right in front of the sign.
DC Pinko Chief apparently called the police.
Police car showed up as Pinkos were preparing to flee
|As the Pinkos were packing to leave, Gael Murphy made a phone call (photo above), apparently calling in the police.
The officer (see car at left) was professional and courteous as almost all DC officers are. However, he told us to not yell or chant at the Pinkos, but it was unclear whether he likewise told them not to sing. He talked to them after talking with us.
It is unclear how we will vindicate our First Amendment rights to use peaceful and lawful expressions of disgust to the Pinkos, but we will vindicate our rights, lawfully and maintaining our respect for the police.
More details about the police matter are on this thread: POLICE ORDER D.C. CHAPTER'S PRO-TROOPS WALTER REED DEMONSTRATION SILENCED
Without our brave troops, we could never be free. They've never let us down. We will never let them down and abandon them to the Pinko obscene blood-dancers.
There was no bus of wounded troops returning from free meals at Fran O'Brien's because of the holiday season.
Let's help our wounded heroes maintain a positive attitude. We absolutely must keep the pressure on Code Pink and keep showing the wounded troops at Walter Reed that Code Pink doesn't speak for the nation. If you live in the DC area and haven't yet come out for one of these FReeps, please do so this next Friday. Injured Walter Reed patients, including amputees, and their families have repeatedly told us how important it is for us to be there to counter Code Pink and their ugly anti-troops agenda.
If we can sufficiently outnumber the leftists often enough, embarrassment may cause the leftists to stop these outrageous morale-damaging ("Maimed for a lie" was one of their commonly-used signs) demonstrations at the hospital. If some are immune to embarrassment, and, at the very least, we can hinder their psychological warfare operation against the wounded troops. What about you? Can you spare a few hours on a Friday night?
Can you give up next Friday night at the movies to support troops who've given up limbs for your freedoms? Will you?
This FReep is rewarding, fun, and important for our troops and our nation.
Thanks to Landry Fan for editorial assistance, great suggestions, and error-checking. Any remaining errors were probably added by me after her review.
We shall continue FReeping the Code Pinkos every Friday night until they stop their obscene blood dance outside the hospital of our war-wounded. If you agree with me that it is outrageous for Code Pinkos to protest a war at a hospital with war-wounded troops inside, please come out and join us in a peaceful counter-protest.
One of the amputees told me months ago that he doesn't want other wounded troops coming into Walter Reed and seeing only the Code Pinkos at the gates. He explained that the FReeper presence there was extremely important to counter the Pinkos. Please join us and be a part of our peaceful counter-protest to Code Pink.
Please don't let the troops think that regular Americans are too busy with TV, ballgames, movies and other recreation to peacefully counter America-hating leftists.
Being there with us in spirit is great, but we need people to hold the MOAB (Mother of all banners), other signs, and flags. Maybe you can't come every week, but please make it your patriotic duty to join us at least once in the near future.
As always, the DC Chapter's rules for protesting will be in effect.
Briefly, they are: No violence. No profanity. No racism. No provocations. Obey the law. Treat all law enforcement officers with respect.
Walter Reed Army Medical Center, 7200 Georgia Ave., at Elder St., NW
Code Pinkos have been setting up on the southwest corner of the Georgia Ave/Elder St intersection. We've been setting up on the northeast corner across the street from Walter Reed's entrance gate. Now, their permit purportedly covers both corners on the west side of the street.
On street parking is usually easy to find. Location is about 6 or 7 blocks from Takoma metro station and is walkable, but it is best if you get a ride. If you want a ride, FReepmail me, preferably with your cell phone number as far in advance as possible. If you wait until Friday afternoon, I may be away from the computer.
Keep up the good work!
Always look forward to this thread, the pix, comments & the afterreports. Good luck and thank you DC FReepers!
FReepmail me to get on or off the list.
Please make a New Year's Resolution to attend at least one of these FReeps as soon as you can.
Injured Walter Reed patients, including amputees, have repeatedly told us how important it is for us to be there to counter Code Pink.
If we can sufficiently outnumber the leftists often enough, embarrassment may cause some leftists to stop these outrageous morale-damaging ("Maimed for a lie" was one of their signs) demonstrations at the hospital. At the very least, we can peacefully and lawfully minimize the effect of their psych-ops against the troops.
Our troops are bold enough to face bullets, mortars, IEDs, and suicide bombers. Are you bold enough to get out from behind the keyboard, FReep in person, and stand up for the wounded troops at Walter Reed?
If you're in the DC area and don't have family, work or medical considerations that keep you from FReeping, can you spare a few hours on a Friday night? Will you?
Yet another Taxman Bravo Zulu! for the outFReepingstanding FReep, after-action report and pics!
I'll be back!
Maybe a younger sister or a . . .?
I won't complete the above, except to say that the evil Murph really loves herself, a lot, and might seek someone to reinforce that deep psychological need.
No, Gael looks at least 20 years older than the broad on the left. And the broad on the left looks like she's approaching "midlife."
Bless you for supporting our troops.
Let us know how it goes on the noise thing. Damn commie liberals! Their message is so bad, the only hope they have is to try to silence the other side.
Thanks for the AAR Bill - great job!
Just, thanks for the kind words. Thanks also for all you do for the troops.
As happened the last few times, Landry Fan's great editing helped me avoid some big mistakes. She also had some great additions, including my favorite line in the whole report:
"Did Gael Murphy learn about using body doubles from her friend Saddam?"
I laughed when I read that suggestion from her.
You mentioned months ago that you might drop by some Friday and join us.
How about starting out the New Year by coming this Friday? We'd love to have you join us and maybe you could talk about the experience on your radio and Fox TV shows?
Last Friday the Pinkos hit a new low as they sang, "Knocking on Heaven's Door," the Bob Dylan song in which a lawman sings to his mother of his impending death from gunshot wounds. These Pinko scum sang this outside a hospital where some troops are fighting for their lives after suffering gunshot wounds.
Please help us counter the continued Code Pinko blood dance at Walter Reed.
Thanks for all you do in your great shows.
This thread needs a bump!
Thanks for all you brave FReepers who stand up and be counted week after week!
You better be back. We miss you.
Gael just opened another can of worms. She will not like this Friday night.
