Skip to comments.Leftists March With Empty Boxes....., Ft. Collins, CO, AFTER FREEP REPORT
Posted on 03/18/2006 6:25:09 PM PST by Trteamer
Fort Collins, Colorado. The local Center For Peace and Justice members marched to downtown Fort Collins carrying empty boxes to rally against the war. Marching in front of them were a bunch of FReepers........
I brought a box too.

A fun afternoon it was, my jaw still hurts from all the grinning. We had a great time with great FReeper friends and lurkers. The leftists sure are a bunch of whiners. FReepers weldgopharline, Fire Engine Red, jan in colorado, and I along with a whole bunch of lurkers (I'll let Jan fill in all the names...) let Fort Collins know who was coming down the street. We were even visited by a guy who thinks he is an ALIEN LOL!! I'll get this thread started so the others can post their stories...
Great job folks!
Just following your fine example Doctor.
Cheers and God Bless our Troops - Dinah
Fabulous job. Thanks for the ping and the pictures.
"Caution...Liberal Looney Event Follows" LOLOLOL. Wonderful.
My family thanks all of you for supporting our troops....
Neon colored poster board -- $.79
Wide black permanent marker -- $1.29
Oversized paint stirrer -- free
Watching liberals cry -- PRICELESS!
Excellent FReep! You guys sure don't make it easy for them.
Although I disagree that we should use up our ANWR oil before expending everyone else's (I want to be the last ones with any around...monopolies are great!), I'm so glad to see such support for the troops!
So...according to a loony sign, "Poverty and Injustice Feed Terrorism," huh? Well, good thing we got Saddam outta there! ;-)
I LOVE the signs! Especially -- CAUTION - LIBERAL LOONEY EVENT FOLLOW'S!
I'll check back later to read more comments on this great FReep.
Other than the spurious apostrophe! ;-)
"This one gets my vote as the Poster of the Day"
It lost mine because of the incorrect apostrophe. Why do some people think every word that ends in "s" gets an apostrophe?
Great job..Love the pictures! Thank you for supporting our troops.
Here are some of the funnier things that happened to me during todays FReep:
We have had this guy come by on his bicycle for the past two years. He says he is an ALIEN from the planet Silica, were everyone is made of glass! LOL! Before the march started I saw him coming down the street on his bike. I yelled "Hey Alien Dude!" and waved at him. He came right on over and started talking. He told me he hasn't seen another alien for so long now that he is starting to forget what they look like. I asked him if he had seen any black helicoptors lately? "No, but I did see a silver one way up there in the sky three days ago. It was running in silent mode and was headed north. Whats up north of here?" To which I replied "Cheyenne, that's where they keep the nukes". ROTFLMAO!
When the march started we walked along the opposite side of the street waiting for them to cross over to our side. When they finally did, we waited to see which direction they were going to go when they met up with us on the corner. They started one way and we raced outin fornt of them. Then they changed direction and we had to sprint to get in front of them again. They were all laughing at us and we were cracking up too, because we were in front leading the way. One lady raced in front of us, then realized the peace-niks had stopped about a half a block back to chant and play bongo drums. It was funny watching the look of horror on her face as she realized they had abandoned her. She ran all the way back to them.
This wise guy college student came up to us wearing a T-shirt with a picture of President Bush on it. He had written "Fascist!" on W's forehead. I asked him "What is the definition of a fascist?". He couldn't answer that one. When I told him that it was someone who supported a dictator, he told me that George Bush was a dictator. Those CSU professors have done their job well.
awe nutz, I liked it soooo much I missed that.
You guys have way too much fun! Good job.
That is my nephew on his first Freep and he had a blast.
No they did not we went over and the recuriters office were empty and no one there.
We had a beautiful sunny day to counter the Anti-American leftists. After meeting in the Safeway parking lot, we were ready to set up on the corner with the VFW's to show our support of the Troops!
The VFW's have set up on this corner every Saturday, except Christmas, since September 11, 2001!
Thanks for the ping. zip and Mrs Zip
Darn....I wish I was there. I go dancing in Fort Collins a lot, out at the park on East Mulberry. I know LOADS of liberals there that I would have loved to p.o.
I'll be out there in a couple of months.......do you have another event planned?
Amazing that I've seen that same sign now for 2 or 3 parades, yet never noticed the extra apostrophe.
Just goes to show you there are two kinds of people - 1) the unimportant kind who spend many hours making signs, driving to cities hours away from their homes, and facing down hordes of angry leftists (who on occasion will become physically threatening) in all kinds of weather for half a day at a time. And then there are: 2) The really, really, important kind of people who are too lazy to do anything like this themselves to support our troops, but will instead sit on their big fat butts at home, picking apart the punctuation of the people doing all the work.
Great job once more, N. Colorado Freepers!! I can't tell you how sorry I was to be out of town.
T, do you know this clown?
well stated. Thank you for expressing my feelings better than I could.
When you get out here, send me a FReep mail. Sometimes we don't let the leftists know what we are up to and just surprise them. The awesome VFW post never misses a Saturday at the corner of Mulberry and College Ave. (high noon). They always welcome FReepers help.
I don't care about a little grammer error on such a wonderful sign. It still gets the point across in spades. I had a great time with my "LEFTIST WHINING EVENT" sign. I could hear them whining about it constantly. Most of the whining consisted of one thing. "We support the troops too!" the leftists all complained. During WWII these people would have been beaten up or worse.
As I was walking in front of the parade, I ran into one of my customers. She knows I do these things and just cracked up laughing when she recognized me. I was another fun day FReeping leftists.
At ease man, it was just an observation by another FReeper.
It doesn't detract from the greatness of the sign.
It was just an observation, we are all in agreement that
it was a great Freep...........cool down a little will ya'
great job T et al!
And VFW,weldgophardline,Jan in Colorado,fire engine red,Lurker Paula and Lurker Jeff
Actually, if you look at Gone GF's posting history , you will see that the majority of his posts are criticisms of other posters.
Are you sure you guys/dolls aren't "Lurker Protest Warriors"?
You did FReeRepublic good in CO. In fact, all over the U.S., we all did FR good. A BIG pat on the back to everyone!!
FYI: Over here in D.C., some of us when rehabing our signs, have been replacing some of the 'Support' words with 'Honor'. Too many of the liberals and moonbats say they "support" the troops. That word is being cheapened by them so honor differentiates us. But we still keep 'Support", because we really do.
Again, THANKS to all.
"The really, really, important kind of people who are too lazy to do anything like this themselves to support our troops, but will instead sit on their big fat butts at home, picking apart the punctuation of the people doing all the work."
You, of course, have no friggin' idea at all what I do in and for my own community. And I won't bother telling you because I have no need to defend myself.
I'm sorry you don't believe correct grammar, spelling and punctuation are important. It's always been my understanding that conservatives favor better and improved education. I edit and write for a living and when I see a sign with an error that even my 12-year-old wouldn't make, the message is lost. And I'm not the only one.
"You sit there like a frog criticizing the real Americans who are doing something positive"
Yes, it embarasses me when a freeper shows up in public carrying a sign with an error so basic. We laugh our butts off at liberals and call them uneducated idiots when they do the same.
What a great job you guys are doing! Wish I could have been there to join in the fun! It never ceases to amaze me how ignorant the libs really are. Thanks for the pics and the job well done, Colorado FReepers!
Well Gone GF your high and mighty highness I 'm the Idiot that made that sign and will not apologies to the like of a high brow that probably has and never will go out and face off against a crowd of liberal.One's that have so much love in their hearts for Freepers.
Yep! It's great to see the good folks of Colorado come out on a nice day - Sunlight is the best disinfectant!
Great to see normal folks showcase the clowns on parade.
ROTFLMBO!! Y'all have too much fun!
Great signs and an AWESOME FReep!!!!
Then you might try a private reply instead of trumpeting your grammatical superiority. You should also consider using the FR spell-checker. The word is embarrasses. LOL!
What a lot of fun... and I'm certain that the other side was happy they could count on you "attending" for the third year in a row! ;) LOL
