Rally Outside Lowell High School To Protest Cindy Sheehan (San Francisco, 4/7 After Action Rep-Pics)
4/6/06 | SeenTheLight

Posted on 04/06/2006 1:51:10 PM PDT by SeenTheLight

Melanie Morgan (KSFO) has organized a rally outside of Lowell High School in San Francisco for tomorrow (4/7) at 9:45am. It's to protest Cindy Sheehan's appearance and school officials' refusal to provide an alternate point of view. A Gold Star father will be there and patriotic locals are needed to come show their support! Stay tuned to KSFO's morning show tomorrow for more details.

A friend's directions:

Lowell High School is at 1101 Eucalyptus in the Sunset District. It is very close to Stonestown and is located between 19th Ave and Lake Merced on Eucalyptus. If you drive, I suggest parking on Ocean (a block over) as the curb is pretty full beginning at 7:30 when school starts.

Oh man, Dan Kelly was my son's pediatrician before he joined the S.F. School Board. I am now SOOOO glad I left town (still work there, but didn't realize Kelly had become such an a-hole).

I gotta tell you that in my opinion MMs initial email to Lowell was very confrontational, demanding that equal time be given. It may not have made much difference, but a polite "request" instead of an indignant "demand" might have been a better way to go.

Not to mention running a spell check.

The students at Lowell have more important things to do and more pressing tasks, academic and otherwise, about which to worry.

Good luck to you all - I hope that there is a good turn out for the rally. But, to anyone who attends: Make your point, but please remember to be on good behavior. This is a school, and any disruption will draw a lot of scrutiny.

True, but it was a (conservative) Lowell student who first brought this to local attention. And it's their education that's at risk of being subsumed by political indoctrination. So I would think that this is a pretty important issue for students.

Not that we're suggesting walk-outs or anything ;-)

If any of you make it to the school, ask the hypocrite Sheehan why, after two years, if she is honoring her son so much why she hasn't even bothered to buy him a marker for his grave. I got permission from Deborah Johns to post the following:

LOL!

Good point, it's definitely important to take a stand, and I'm sure that everyone else will pull it off in a much more thoughtful and dignified manner than is often displayed by Cindy Sheehan. So, in that sense, the rally will be more legitimately educational than the Cindy Sheehan event.

You'd think that someone as hysterical, reactionary, and unbalanced as Cindy Sheehan would obviously be a poor choice if the school were trying to instill a thoughtful and balanced interest in national and world events.

BTW, on the lighter side, I'm a graduate of Lowell, and when I was there, students used to use funnels and surgical tubing to fire fruit and other items from the middle courtyard, over the building, to the outer courtyard near Eucalyptus (and vice versa). So, everyone keep one eye on the sky and watch out ;-)

It looks like this is a secret session.

Just for the indoctrination of the children.

Melanie Morgan is trying to change that.

I have a couple of her recent speeches on tape, but have not edited them yet for clips.

It will be interesting to find out what she says to kids; I imagine she will find a way to get their lunch money. Her main topic is usually begging for money.

It went well! We had about 40 people and we did our bit by simply being there and demonstrating that not everyone in SF is pro-Sheehan and anti-American. We had plenty of American flags and patriotic placards and signs.

Halfway through, we were joined by 10-15 Lowell students who were not thrilled with the "anti-war" presentation on their campus. I spoke to one of the young men and he told me that his brother is enlisting in the military. Some Lowell graduates and SF State students (College Republicans) also joined in. They posted their after report with pics at the gatorgop website:

http://userwww.sfsu.edu/%7Ejourney/sheehan_protest.html

Melanie Morgan was inside during the Sheehan presentation and reportedly the school would not allow the GoldStar father she brought along to speak. She told us afterwards that Sheehan had been pushing the usual anti-American lies and propaganda and that sadly, she received a standing ovation from students.

In fact, a crowd of Lowell students had gathered across the street afterwards to check us out. Some looked confused, others amused and a few appeared hostile. A group of them came across the street and starting debating with some of us, but it didn't go far.

Our only "counter-protester" was a typical SF lefty Moonbat who stood across the street all day wearing an Uncle Sam mask and holding "Peace Now" type signs. He hollered unintelligible epithets at us throughout the day, but we just ignored him. Every now and then, he'd try and approach us and the cops (several of whom we chatted with later) would immediately stop him. At the very end, he'd managed to convince two young ladies to hold his signs (did he pay them?).

The best part of the whole day was when Sheehan made her exit, hopped into her brand new VW bug (or whatever they're called now), saw us and promptly did a U-Turn and went the other way!

So much for opposing viewpoints ;-)

Cindy's comments made during the Crawford video are very telling.
She did refer to the insurgents as freedom fighters.
She did say that she doesn't want Casey remembered as a hero yet she used his hero status after her arrest during the State of the Union address.
She forgets that Casey reenlisted. If he was lied to it didn't stop him from raising his right hand again.
She states that there were no terrorist in Iraq before the war. Ansar al-Islam(Zarqawi) was active in Kurdistan in 2001.

It was a good turnout, and some of the students got some good information to counter what went on inside with Sheehan's anti-freedom rants.

This is one of the Lowell High School Alumni that showed up.



Some of the crowd, estimated by the Liberal Media at being between 3-5 people (probably LOL)





The Mother of a Marine serving in Iraq was there.



Melanie Morgan was there of course as know from STL's post above. It looks like next to her is her "Son"...

The guy on the right was trying to figure out how to get the high school students to come over to his side.



After the Assembly some of the students gathered on the opposite corner.

I checked the news last nite, and saw nothing.

NBC was there, I saw a peacock on a microphone.

This lady was interviewing Mark (I don't know his last name) who is a Gold Star Father. His son was killed in Iraq two years ago last Thursday.

Unfortunately, they would not let him speak even though he was allowed to go inside.

After a while, the students saw the expression on the terrorist supporter's face (and mask)...



...and came over to where the Supporters of Freedom were gathered.





They were very attentive and were infused with truth from the many patriots.
