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, do you give your students an "A" for effort even when they fail? Even when they write about their own self-regard and attack the personality of the professor without answering the topic at hand constructively? When I was a college professor, I made my students learn the material.
All I can say to Buford is
I WASN'T attacking anyone. I was challenging them to consider their motives. I would think a conservative could see that for what it is: an attempt to HELP keep people [whom I care about] from going off the deep end.
Clearly, the comment was heard. And obviously you did. So I must have said something. Otherwise, there would not have been the responses I've received on the forum and in FReepmail. And not all negative.
But thank you for your warm thoughts and kind comments.
Keep on keeping on.
Also a few of us Texans who would love to get on a plane and come kick some more Commie Butt!!!!!!!!
My wife just said, "Let's do it!!!"
Great Day to all of you over in DC and the area
We had such a good time last time!!!
I'll get Monica to come translate for me!!! She's in class right now
You could be hired to give out numbers at 411 and Yes, you'd be condescending.
Go back and read the part about making a real bad first impression...
I guess people who like to dress up like satan should not be expected to show a little understanding or cut somebody some slack.
Why knock some well deserved celebration by FReepers who have put up with a lot while counter demonstrating Code Pink? One really has to be there to appreciate what we have done. And you have not.
At least TPartyType enjoys bantering the subject around with back up material.
So I also thank you for your warm thoughts and kind comments.
What's with the "I'm sorry, but come here and let me slap you again" crap?
I'm so sorry you couldn't be gracious.
another 4 year old?
P.S. Kristinn really enjoyed the captions, and he said you need to come back and finish the movie.
Of course I understand that an anal retentive obsessive compusive with paranoid delusions like yourself will just have to send another replly to me on this thread.
You can't help yourself.
Check post #356. What's the over/under on how long before he'll have to reply.
Again, I say to you, who died and made you Psychologist-in-Chief? You are speaking to a community of seasoned activists with a mean age of 40 who have responsible positions in real life, unlike yourself, whose "charges" (your word) are subsidized by their parents. We have real responsibilities. You continue to insist you know better than us when your earlier post admitted you had never heard of the seriously treasonous activities of our opponents in this situation.
How old are you, may I ask?
See my FReepmail to you for my frank opinion of your display of ignorance on this thread.
Well, if he comes in too fast he'll look like a liberal and one who gets addicted to militant tactics.
And if he comes in too slow, he'll look like a an intellectually conservative rhetorical elitist begins with a p and ends with a y.
It's a toss up.
