Counter pro-Hizbollah rally in San Diego, CA.
8/6/06 | Eric_Odessit

Posted on 08/06/2006 1:35:32 AM PDT by eric_odessit

Guys, Here is what the leftists are planning:

Demo: OCCUPATION IS A CRIME FROM LEBANON TO IRAQ TO PALESTINE Description: The National Council of Arab American (NCA ) San Diego Chapter And Al-Awda San Diego Chapter Invite all of you to come out and join us in opposing the war crimes that are being committed by Israel in Palestine and Lebanon Meet at the fountain in Balboa Park at 12:00 noon and then march over the bridge to 6Th and Laurel . WE NEED EVERYONE OUT AT THIS DEMONSTRATION Bring your signs and banners and leaflets ,but most important ,BRING YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS We will demand a stop of US aid to the Zionist state. We will demand the Right of Return to Palestinians and Lebanese. OCCUPATION IS A CRIME FROM LEBANON TO IRAQ TO PALESTINE Urge the members of your church and mosque and club etc... to join us We can not stay silent while the US is supporting Israel wage this war crimes against our people. To sponsor this demo please contact NCA-SD@Arab-American.net

Date: Saturday, August 12, 2006 Time: 12:00pm Created by: Admin Updated: Tuesday, August 1, 2006 3:42pm

Here is the link to their advertisement: http://www.prcsd.org/webcalendar/view_entry.php?id=438&date=20060812

I firmly believe that this should be countered by all freedom-loving Americans who support the United States and Israel, our faithful ally and the only (until recently) democracy in the Middle East, defending itself from the genocidal Nazi-like assault. Let's meet at the statue of Kate Sessions near the corner of 6th and Laurel at 11:30 on Saturday, 8/12/06, and greet the Nazi sympathithers with our counter-demonstration.

And if anybody under illusion that this is not our war, just look at these nice Hizbollah kids linked below. Can you say "hizbo-jugend"? Here is the link to the Time Magazine photo essay: http://www.time.com/time/photoessays/2006/inside_hizballah/

Whoever is interested in attending our counter-demonstration, feel free to contact me directly at eric_odessit@yahoo.com. Bring American and Israeli flags and whatever signs you can come up with for the occasion. Eric.

I am not a new poster at LGF, just infrequent poster. But eric_odessit there - that's me. By the way, the link to the Time Magazine essay of the Hezbo-jugend kids I found through LGF.

Something like:
I stand with Israel;
This is our war too;
Hezbollah is America's enemy too;
Crash Hezbollah Nazis.
Or just American and Israeli flags would send the message across.
Eric.

This would be my sign:

"Death to Hezbollah and their supporters!"

I wonder what kind of response I would get with it? LOL!

There are 2 options:
1. You are an anti-Semite Hezbollah supporter. In this case, go explode somewhere in uninhabited area;
2. You did not take time to read my post. I tend to think better of people, so I hope it's the 2nd. In this case, please read my post completely and try to attend a counter-rally, if you are close to San Diego.
Eric.

Hey, Eric! It's bad form to sign up and post an article on the same day (unless you have been a long time lurker). Tell us a little more about yourself. How did you come to Free Republic, what are your political passions?

Sorry, I did not know. But this is rather urgent.
I am a naturalized American. As my log-in name would imply, I am originally from Odessa, Ukraine. I came to this country in 1989, shortly before the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Thus, I have a very deep appreciation for the United States: I have something to compare it to. My hobby is the history of World War 2. Thus, I view the current war we find ourselves in as a new world war, in which our enemy is very similar to Hitler's Nazis. Indeed, the name "islamofascists" is very appropriate. I also happen to be Jewish and have many friends and relatives in Israel. Israel is first in the line of fire, and we in America need to support it as much as we can.
I learned about Free Republic through my active association with San Diego Protest Warrior.
I hope this answers your questions. If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask.
Eric.

Your thread is certainly worthy of posting, and time is of the essence ... in other words, I don't think that you need to apologize to anyone :)

Welcome to FR, and thanks for the heads-up on this counter-protest! :)

You may be interested in introducing yourself to Alouette and Sjackson. I have pinged them to this thread. You can search posts by users and see the issues they are most attracted to. Sjackson has a high volume pro-Israel list and Alouette has a similar list focusing on European Judaica.

We love the Protest Warriors here. "Belly Girl" is ubiquitous....

I hope you have a great turnout for the counter protest. My suggestion for a Protest Warrior type sign "Islam - We will not tolerate Tolerance!!"

We are frequently less earnest than Protest Warriors. A lot of our threads degenerate into "A moose once bit my sister" and "All your base belong to us" references, but we have many members doing the Lord's work, in particular our DC Chapter.

Good luck and welcome and BTTT.

Usually, a freeper signs up and posts a comment- Trolls sign up and post articles or vanities. Did you post an article your first day?

Dutchgirl,
As you noticed, I am new to the Free Republic, so I am not sure what you are talking about. This is my only thread on the Free Republic forum. There might be somebody else who posted on the CA message board, if there is one separate from this. They probably gave my name and contact info, which is perfectly appropriate.
I have to clarify: although I am an active member of the San Diego Protest Warrior, this counter-rally IS NOT sponsored by the San Diego Chapter of Protest Warrior.
But if you are close, please join us next Saturday.
Eric.

Eric,

Don't sweat this "you shouldn't post when you sign up" bs. Some Freepers are closet hall monitor types who have nothing better to do in life rag on people about stupid azz sh!t like this. Ignore them.

This is my only thread...

I am doing you a favor by pinging Mr. Silverback to your thread. He has posted on another thread earlier today about a similar protest in LA.

Mr. Silverback has a list of CA Freepers that he can ping to draw attention to your post. I know that there is a way to see how many folks have viewed your post, I'm just not sure how to do it. (There are usually a lot more views than there are responses.)

By keeping up a dialog, our new posts appear at the top of the threads for those folks who have their preferences set to "new posts" instead of "new articles." That's what I mean by BTTT. It Bumps To The Top of the forum posts.

By having your preference set to "new posts" it helps to keep track of those folks that are still awake when us East Coasters are asleep.

I have to clarify: although I am an active member of the San Diego Protest Warrior, this counter-rally IS NOT sponsored by the San Diego Chapter of Protest Warrior.

Nope. I pinged to a newbie freeper with protest warrior creds. By posting to Free Republic (and not getting Zotted out of existence) you are a freeper now. I'd love to help but I'm in Jacksonville, FL. My way of helping is to keeping bumping your thread to the top to give folks an opportunity to see it, rather than dropping off the radar due to lack of responses. Other folks who think this post is worthy will probably also BTTT.

You'd be amazed at the number of trolls this forum attracts. (just look at any thread containing the keyword "Zot." and behold the awesome power of the Admin Mods!

I was silent through all of the 2000 recount- and I live in FL and am married to a dem. But after 9/11 I had to find a place to vent that wasn't part of the "Blame America First" mindset. Thank God for Free Republic.

My hobby is the history of World War 2.

Mine, also. My father was an infantryman in New Guinea and the Philippines. My uncle was a B-17 navigator in the 8th Air Force until he was shot down and spent the remainder of the war in Stalag Luft something or other.

I think the German invasion of the Soviet Union might be the biggest single catastrophe in history because of the area it covered and the number of people affected. I pray the we in the United States never learn what the people of the Ukraine and other eastern European lands learned in 1941-45.

A warm welcome to America and Free Republic,

Homer

>>Demo: OCCUPATION IS A CRIME FROM LEBANON TO IRAQ<<

So it sounds like they should be against Hezbollah - that's who is occupying large portions of Lebanon and attacking a neighbor from there.

A ping list is a list of people interested in a certain subject. If the person who maintains the list comes across a thread that concerns that subject, they can post a reply in the thread, put the people on the list into the "To" section, and then they will all see his post on their "My Comments" page.

I'll add your name to the California FREEPNORAD list. FREEPNORAD is a series of ping lists I use to alert people to counterprotest opportunities like the one you warned us about in this thread.

If you have any other questions, let me know.
