Posted on 01/27/2006 9:46:07 PM PST by tgslTakoma
There I was, across the street, a six lane street. Just me. And my little camera.
I stood quietly on the empty sidewalk taking pictures of the Code Pink protest at Walter Reed. The one that used to be at the main entrance to the hospital, until they forgot to renew their permit for that location.
Now, they've taken to infesting a location down the street, in front of a small sidewalk park, but still in front of the hospital.
I had gone down alone, with my camera and tripod to document their little public protest.
I had less than a minute's peace to take photos before Allison Yorra and Ann Wilcox of Code Pink came across and told me that I would have to leave the empty sidewalk, across the street from their protest, because they had a permit for where I was standing.
I told them I wasn't disrupting their protest across the street, and that I was holding no signs but simply taking photos. They told me that I was not allowed to be there, and that the police would remove me. I encouraged them to call the police, because I wasn't demonstrating in their protest area, just taking photos, in their protest area where they weren't protesting. They initially declined to call the police, preferring to "handle it themselves."
By now, "Princess", Weasel and some guy with a black beret had joined Allison and Ann around me. They began to block my camera, which was focused on their public protest across the street. No matter which way I turned, there was Allison and her bully-boys.
So I stepped off the sidewalk and into the curb lane of the street, where MPDC does not issue permits unless the road is closed. Allison and the bullies quickly followed. I'd move. They'd move in front of me. I'd move again. They'd again block my view.
Here are a few photos I took:
Allison Yorra - Code Pink
Allison and "Princess" who both love to call our president a fascist, as they freely protest at a military hospital and try to bully a lone photographer.
Weasel scurries across the street to join in the leftist fun and games.
Allison's good side
I got lots of photos like this. Y'know, for a woman whose organization loves to sneak into places like the Dem and Republican conventions, the John Bolton hearings, various Rumsfeld hearings and events to unfurl banners and disrupt the events for the fawning MSM cameras - she sure does seem to dislike this camera operator.
Allison has help from Black Beret Guy to stop me from taking photos of their public protest.
Black Beret Guy and Ann Wilcox of Code Pink.
Allison and "Princess" - Her profile is definitely NOT her good side.
Allison got really bent out of shape when the other camera folk came down to film their gang assault on me. In a fit of anger, Allison Yorra yelled at us, calling us a bunch of nobodies and that nobody reads our blogs.
In that case we know that Allison reads our blog.
HEY ALLISON! YOU ARE A TRAITOR!
Please answer my post 174 to you.
Actually I'd like to know what exactly you teach students
so they "think like a conservative should?"
IF you have found a successful curriculum then please post it.
That is the most ill thought out post I have seen in a long time. You are, of course, entitled to your own opinion but what you are suggesting is to ignore Code Pink slamming our soldiers.
That didn't work so well for our Viet Nam vets, now did it?
"I think conservatives should expend their energies engaging in reasoned discourse in the marketplace of ideas, not engaging in a bazaar of 60's-style street theatre of the absurd and militant tactics . . . against big, fat, old, irrelevant losers."
I suppose you are part of the so called "elite",
hardcore GOP members, on Free Republic,
who actually believe that hanoi kerry is entitled to remain in the US Senate and that there is nothing wrong with this.
For those who "forgot" what Hanoi Kerry
did in the past read on and learn the truth.
Hanoi Kerry was still a USNR officer while he:
gave false hearsay testimony to Congress
negotiated with the enemy
helped the US lose a war
abetted in the deaths of millions
created a hostile environment for all servicemen
hanoi kerry went before the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations in 1971
to accuse the United States military
of committing massive numbers of war crimes in Vietnam.
hanoi kerry 1971 TESTIMONY
Why is Kerry still in the US Senate?
This is in violation of
U.S. Constitution Amendment 14 Sec 3 (1868)
Section 3. No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress,
or elector of President and Vice President,
or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States,
or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath,
as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States,
or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer
of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States,
shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same,
or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.
But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.
You got it, CA. The left is trying to REVIVE the 60's mentality. They have the right to protest whatever they want, but we have to do whatever we can to stop them from demoralizing our military. Conservatives used to sit on the sidelines, discuss ideas with each other, & remain above the frey, as it were. Where did that get us, not just as conservatives but as a nation? There is a time to fight fire with fire, and this is it. We're not going to take it any more.
Exactly! We have our own lazy code pinkos down here in San Diego that like to protest outside of Balboa Naval Hosp. They do not go unanswered. AND THEY NEVER WILL!
We have twice driven them away and out of sight. If we just leave them be, how many more military hospitals across the nation will be invaded by their hate?
The is the weasel who calls himself the other name.
Over here cb, he started it last night and it continues.
Can you please bring concretebob up to date on this thread please?
Bob is a big boy and he can read.
I rather be a as you named "Street Freeper" than a worthless coward, sit at home, loud mouth, do nothing Freeper.
Of course he is...concretebob for President '08 still is in the tag lines...
I actually thought of a private reply since he did not know this thread had started and it would bring him "up to speed" faster than searching for the posts...( begin 115?) I also thought you might know the poster...I do not remember him.
Dumb me...nevermind! In my best SNL voice!
I was already WARPED before I started standing on the East side of Gerogia Ave and I definitely became enraged and indignant at the sight of faux sympathy from a bunch of Marxists who give money to terrorists, expose the wounded and their families to the sight of flag-draped coffins, call our brave soldiers killers, and then pretend to care about their well-being.
Instead of commenting on what you perceive is a waste of time, how about donating some of that time and energy to getting some goodies together and sending a box to the wounded.
You could spend the same amount of time writing a Thank You note to include in the box of goodies.
That way, you could stay off this thread, not be bothered with having to respond to our comments about our VICTORY in removing the oinkos from the Main Gate of an Army Medical Center, and everyone will be happy.
Here, try this one..
Your constructive criticism is greatly appreciated
F**K You Very Much
Hell doesn't want him, he tries to take over...
It is important to make our voices heard about the damage the left is doing to our country and to the morale of our troops and to never, never, ever let them have the power over common culture they had in the 60s and 70s.
That statement from the COLD PINK Frigid Womyn For Peace notice is the reason they are out there. It's not a vigil for the welfare of the troops, it's a protest like any other protest they do where the put out crosses, coffins, or boots.
The objective is not better benefits for the troops, it's another "Cost Od War" protrest.
Weasel is a lying weasel or dumb weasel when he defends it as a "vigil". If it were a real vigil, the lying bastards would hold their vigil candles, not scatter them around for atmosphere like they were all in the COLD PINK hot tub.
One just hasn't had one's arse handed to one until one has had it handed to oneself by Beandog, IMHO. Especially her closing arguments! (Loved the one last week to the Pinkos: "In closing, Bite me.")
No, Mommie tried to eat her but she escaped...
There we have it folks. Those who can do, those who can't teach. Or in this case, I suspect, administrates.
Hey nice to hear from you. Hope things are coming along.
Wonderfully well said, NotPoliticallyCoWrecked, as is the rest of your post. Go, left coast FReepers!
It's a Weasel. An egg sucking weasel.
What the commie demonstrated to you by saying, "You can't take my picture" is that if they were in charge, they'd be dictators and the public would be at the mercey of their feelings and not ruled by laaws. The difference can be summed up in one word, "Freedom".
Still winding up the health odyssey; loving the WR FReeps; volunteering in MD politics. Glad all is well with you!
You'd be surprised how many are in their 60s, reliving the 60s at these events. We mock them and bring attention to that by chanting, "Don't trust anyone under 60."
We stand for our wounded troops and their families who arrive to see their wounded family member and had to pass a gauntlet of ghouls. Sometimes, through the windows of the very ambulances who bring the wounded to be healed, those morons were visible.
We are there to say, "Welcome home, heroes; you are appreciated, honored and loved. We are grateful. Thank you from our hearts."
Love is the world's ultimate conservative idea, value and principle.
I teach rhetoric, in the vein of Richard M. Weaver, one of the fathers of the modern conservative movement in America. I teach them to be at home in the realm of ideas; how to engage in reasoned discourse, how to follow an argument to its logical conclusion, spot contradictions and faulty logic, how to avoid extremes, and how to be good citizens.
Here's a few links to what I teach:
Some reflections on and by Richard M. Weaver
Overview of Rhetoric
Rhetoric and Decorum on the Web
A reflection on Federalist #1
My Practical Reasoning Tutorial (much of which is based on Richard M. Weaver's Rhetoric and Handbook
Sounds like a very worthy mission. I couldn't agree with you more about love being the ultimate principle.
I set an example, I don't "teach" anything.
Being a true American requires no "teaching" at all.
This is fantastic! How inspiring! Thank you, and I hope you will do more after-action reports, posted as threads. God bless you!
And that person who has to keep "our movement" "honest and true" would be your exalted self? My, but you're grand. Sweetie pie, you need to shuck the collectivism and remember the true meaning of freedom. We're not a movement. We are the center of the heart of America. We're keeping them off our troopers like you would keep a peeing dog off your rose bushes.
I'm not trying to place myself above anyone else or condescend in any way. I just see a tendency here that I honestly believe contradicts true conservatism and I think people should consider. That's all. This is a forum, right? We discuss ideas?
You speak without knowing what we see or experience in the streets. Come out and but it will take more than one visit. Then we'll talk.
I'm sorry, I just noticed your #139. Thanks for the info. I'll go read right now.
We are where the rubber meets the road. There are no "shoulds", "coulds," "oughts" with us; we saw our troops being smeared and we acted, as a team, again and again, until we subdued the menace. In real life, we have a wide variety of professions in which decisive action is also valued along with intellectual skill. Criticism is the province of fools. We are committed, not just in theory.
That Freep took place about the time that our troops were in the sand heading toward Baghdad. Baghdad Bob was screeching that our troops were going to be smashed by the elite forces of Saddam's army.
Jim Robinson, JustAmy and Mountaingrl all posted extensive threads about our Freeps that started in 2001 and last for about 2 years. I don't know if they are in the archives, but there is a very good possibility that they would be lsited with a link on Jim Robinson's home page.
We are currently down to about once a month on the first Friday of the month. So this Friday we will be there to counter Peace Fresno. We are down in numbers also, but we have our regulars that are there almost every month.
Barbara Striesand...reread your comments.
I just see a tendency here that I honestly believe contradicts true conservatism and I think people should consider. That's all.
You we lecturing, not discussing.
This is a forum, right? We discuss ideas?
You went on the attack. Now you want a truce?
You, on the other hand came out with both barrels blazing. (Which was no surprise to me, given our last little go 'round about this topic a few years back.)
Like I said, I'll never bring it up again.
You're a better man than I.
I would be telling the Code Pink people all about the nice reeducation camp accomodations they might get if this WOT ever involves a nuclear attack on American soil.
Seriously. That is how I handled traitors when I still lived in the USA. I find it easier to live in Europe now where I don't really meet traitors.
"I would really like to tell you what I truly feel..."
Actually you did. G-D bless you FM, and G-D bless our Troops.
As you asked Takoma in your Post #124 for back up of her word, I ask, "Do you have a link to your active support of the troops". Talk is cheap.
Bush has spent the last five years trying to be above the fray and it has gotten him NO WHERE! So long as the MSM controls the news content, we have to fight back where and how we can. The troops that talk to us in front of WR and sometimes stand with us support our "4 year old" efforts.
You may want to be part of the "silent majority" as in the 60s & 70s, but those at WR and other sites throughout the USA do not.
Please tell your son I said
"Thank You for your service to our country."
