Antiwar protestors stalk Rep. Rohrabacher at his home
Orange County Register ^ | September 3, 2006 | NATALYA SHULYAKOVSKAYA

Posted on 09/04/2006 7:21:00 AM PDT by Sergeant Tim

From the Orange County Register online:

[Congressman Dana] Rohrabacher has supported the Bush administration on the war in Iraq.

Then, the protesters started shouting: "Bring them home! Now!"

As the pitch rose, the congressman ran out of his grey stucco home. He was barefoot.

"You just woke my babies!" Rohrabacher said. He and his wife, Rhonda, have 2-year-old triplets. Rohrabacher said he was on his back porch when he heard crying over a baby monitor.

"I am going to get all of you arrested if you don't leave right now."

"My son is in Iraq!" responded Tim Kahlor, 48, whose son is on his second tour of duty in Iraq until January 2007. "And he does not get much sleep!"

"Did he volunteer?" Rohrabacher yelled back. "Wait a minute, man, you are standing on my property. You are violating my rights… And you are violating my family's rights!"

Pat Alviso, a teacher whose 30-year-old Marine son will deploy in Iraq for his second tour of duty next week, said the activists tried to visit the congressman in his office last Wednesday, but were told that his calendar was full.

"Did somebody call my office ahead of time?" Rohrabacher asked.

"I met with people all last week, I talked to them about the war…. But unlike you, they were courteous, they were not arrogant." [emphasis added mine]

That's the point-

The sons of these people are VOLUNTEERING to fight in Iraq and their hippie-boomer parents are finding new youth in being "war protesters"

Police need to stop disruptive activities in residential areas.

a few week back in Boston area

BOSTON — A national group of military families are so adamant the United States should pull out of Iraq they are literally taking their fight to the homes of U.S. congressmen...a group of concerned families and veterans will set up a vigil at the South Boston family residence of U.S. Congressman Stephen Lynch, urging him to take action and call for an end to battle.

(SNIP)

According to Lynch’s spokesman, Matt Ferraguto, the woman’s phone calls and e-mails were always returned and during his last trip in Iraq he requested to meet with her daughter — who was unable to attend because of logistics.
(SNIP)
Ferraguto said Lynch “supports every responsible effort to bring our troops home safely, and he deeply respects the right to protest.”

Lynch has shown strong support for the men and women in service by visiting Iraq five times, pushing for an additional $250 million for personal body armor and is one of the only members of Congress to draft a plan to safely withdraw from Iraq, Ferraguto said.

"They returned with a giant mock check for an "endless war" and put it on the doorstep of Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Huntington Beach. Then, one by one, they placed black combat boots on the grass. The boots had tags with names of soldiers killed in Iraq."

Just another group of parents who let the government pay for their kids' college and had to own up to their end of the bargain... and now they are pissed.

So if we all choose to show up on their doorsteps, provided they all have homes, and chant anti-peaceniks slogans I wonder if these lunatics would have a problem with that? Somehow I think they would.

Losers.

Congressman Dana Rohrabacher did a great job standing up to the fools.

I have twins who were born when their sister was 11 months old. I can truly sympathize with his anger at having them awakened. One gets very few moments of peace in that situation.

However, he did EXACTLY what they wanted him to do. Ignore them and they will go away.

Two things are obvious here: the protestors stalked a Congressman at his home and there is no draft.

Like them or not, agree with their issue or not, they have a right to protest yet protesting at people's homes, at fallen troops' funerals, at private gatherings, and outside of military hospitals is sick-minded and morally wrong.

While the one Marine sited may or may not be disillusioned at our efforts in Iraq, troops volunteer to be in our military. They bought into the mission by joining -- that is what warriors do -- and know they will likely be in the battlebox. Perhaps some parents disagree with their decision to join yet these troops are not "kids," they are adults and it also their nation to defend.

Remember when Bush was first elected, Rush talked about the ex-hippies/Dems desperately wanting to relive their glory days of Vietnam protests? With his advance warning, it was no surprise when they later seized upon the WOT to bring out the peace signs again!

Again We see a group of people who have no consideration of other peoples rights. They cannot understand how generations before them have had family die in defense of THEIR freedoms.

Why don't they just give up all their rights, convert to Islam like the fascists are telling them, and end all this conflict !

'I don't believe that "did he volunteer?" is a good response. '

Of course it is unless you are a class warrior.

'We have too many feminized young men in this country who are not sharing in the sacrifice. '

All to the good wimps don't belong in uniform.

DU is another website.
