Code Pink Leader Has Tantrum at Walter Reed - 01/27/06
January 27, 2006

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.

So it sounds like they got tired of being outnumbered at their protest position, and purposely let their permit expire so they could get permits for both sides of the street NOT at a corner, so they wouldn't have to put up with you guys across the street from them.

For all the laughs coming out of all this,I am still reminded that these citizens are protesting infront of a military hospital where numerous brave men and women are enduring tremendous hardship and suffering for their loyal and brave service in defense of our freedom.

Find me the proper words to describe the awful wrong that goes on here under the banner of Free Speech.

It's heart rending to me and I'm sure countless others.

You should have told her to wash her hair once in a while. It would be easier to photograph through it. That plus the grease causes a flash artifact on the photos. ;)

I'm afraid there aren't any; not nearly enough at any rate.

Should have let them assault you. You could press felony charges and have them jailed.

The proper words to describe that particular awful wrong are not ones that we are allowed to use here on Free Republic.

OMG, it was Allison who was scratching head lice in your video! I recognize the pink cap!

She needs to go back to Mystic and make pizza.

If no-one reads our blogs, how did she know we have blogs?

Allison: "I knew that. Do you think I don't know that?"

"People get busy. Lapse happens. Do you think I don't know that?"

Wilcox told me she did call the police. "Some kind of violence may break out" due to our proximity and confrontational attitude. She actually seemed disappointed that we'd been so civil!

Hi! Saw you from a distance tonight as you were whizzing by in your car. That's whizzing by in your car, not whizzing in your car, Distance FReeper! Glad to see you, in any case. I was late getting there because I spilled gasoline on my clothing while filling up enroute. Warned our smokers not to get near me. Gave new meaning to the old saying, "I've got gas." On the other hand, when you were whizzing by in your car, technically, you could be said to be "passing gas."

By the way, we've got permits...
