Skip to comments.Walter Reed FReep #74 - SMASHing Code Pink
Posted on 09/18/2006 8:24:00 PM PDT by PleaDeal
#74-Pinkos SMASHed at Walter Reed - September 15
The Army (BlackFive), Navy (Citizen SMASH), Air Force (Tantor) and Marines (Major Pain) converged on the sidewalks in front of Walter Reed to deliver a stinging message to the Code Pink commies.
Citizen SMASH came to Washington on official gummint business but he did not leave his passion for pestering Pinkos in San Diego. Week after week he’s joined the FReepers at Walter Reed celebrating and thanking our wounded heroes. He’s also been winning “hearts and minds” among the commies waaaaay down the block by assuming a passive attitude and allowing them to spew whatever’s on their minds into his little recorder. Citizen SMASH has amassed quite a collection of audio moonbattery in which the ‘tards consistently claim to support the troops. Last week, we were witness to the most blatent display of Pinko hypocrisy to date — the commies turning their backs on wounded soldiers and telling them to leave the Pinko area!
This week the gloves came off. It was time for Citizen SMASH to confront the seditious mob and maybe, just maybe, convince some of them of the error of their ways.
To execute his plan, Citizen SMASH recruited the ultimate warrior, veteran of both Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan and Operation Iraqi Freedom - Major Pain.
Upon arriving at the protest site the Major wasted no time. He waded in amongst the smelly commies and gave them a few pointers. I saw what I thought was a new moonbat, but then noticed he was smoking a cigar. Pinkos hide when they smoke cigs and none of them would be caught dead with a big ole stoagie! Then I noticed that the commies weren’t acting exactly friendly towards the new guy and there were some raised voices (couldn’t hear the words over the traffic). Next thing I know he’s loping across the street and the mystery is solved.
|Introductions are made all around and the plans for Operation SMASH Code Pink are laid out. The wily and witty Tantor had scouted the enemy position earlier and brought back some valuable intel. With yours truely playing the part of Pinko Bruce (yech! what an odious assignment) we rehearsed the mission in the church parking lot. When all was ready we set out to take up our positions. tgslTakoma and I set up as observers/FReeper Media just outside the enemy’s perimeter as Citizen SMASH and Maj Pain took a longer route to approach the commies from the opposite side.|
Behind enemy lines.
Kevin McCarron and "Weasel" make a furtive attempt to expel our heroes.
With BlackFive monitoring the situation from FReeper HQ (the MOAB corner) and the Major watching his back, Citizen SMASH launched in to his prepared speech. In a loud, clear voice unmistakable above the traffic din he told the Pinkos how their brand of “support” was hurting the brave men and women in the hospital on the other side of the fence.
The pair observed a few of the lefties debate whether or not they should turn around and talk to the men, but the only ones with enough nerve to give it a brief try were “Weasel” and Kevin McCarron (of “Enlist here and die for Halliburton” fame).
With a purposely derisive “Goodnight, ladies”, Citizen SMASH concluded his speech and the engagement came to an end. Next week we’ll see how many casualties the Pinkos took. The text and audio of the lecture can be found at SMASH UNLOADS ON CODE PINK and you can SEE the confrontation thanks to the wonderful work of tgslTakoma here.

Today, September 15th, 2006 was officially proclaimed National POW/MIA Recognition Day by President Bush so Kristinn proudly held our POW/MIA flag.

We'll be back out at Walter Reed next Friday night, September 22, from 6:30 until at least 9:30 at the intersection of Georgia Avenue and Elder Street, NW in Washington, D.C. This is the first event in a weekend full of patriotic activities. Click the image above to see the schedule, list of speakers and all the latest news.
The bus from the Fran O'Brien's dinner is still rolling.
Being there with us in spirit is great, but we need people to hold the MOAB (Mother of all banners), other signs, and flags. Maybe you can't come every week, but please make it your patriotic duty to join us at least once in the near future. This FReep is rewarding, fun, and important for our troops and our nation.
We are told every week by patients and family members that our presence at the gate means a lot to them. The wounded warriors inside the hospital are heartened by the sight of ordinary citizens cheering for them and displaying our heartfelt thanks for the service and sacrifice they've made on our behalf. Just like last week, we were told again that the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan know we're out here cheering them on.
Way too much fun and it didn't cost a dime (or court fees). I tell ya, it recharged me when I would see you guys out there on the corner on the internet when I was in Iraq. Keep it up you are making a huge difference!!!! --Major Pain
A couple hours one night a week is very little to give compared to what they've contributed!
As always, the DC Chapter's rules for protesting will be in effect. Briefly, they are: No violence. No profanity. No racism. No provocations. Obey the law. Treat all law enforcement officers with respect.
Keeping the BIG LIST: All DC Chapter Walter Reed FReeps - c/o BufordP.

It was a great speech and the "goodnight ladies" was perfect!
Roger that (this thread).
Already forwarded (to the one or two people I know)...
Huge traffic on this post on my site today, over 13K unique visitors. It's also been cross-posted here, and cut & pasted by bloggers at several other sites.
I have no way of knowing for certain how many people have read or listened to the audio, but I'm guessing it's a REALLY BIG number.
How many people did Code Pink reach Friday with their message?
BTW, I heard the audio. Still grinning.
Thank you all and God Bless our troops.
Great report. Thanks to all in attendance. FreeRepublic's finest supporting America's finest!
Wonderful post, wonderful story.

If I get sent to the DC or VA area, I'll be there with you!
Watch out for whackos!
You guys are the best! I have wanted to make a trip to DC just to hang out with you folks on a Friday night ever since this thing started. Here, we have 3 bases, and many greatful patriots do their best to keep the commies at bay. Someday I'll get the chance to hang out with you guys at Walter Reed!
Reporting from the other Washington...... carry on!
Way to go SMASH. Keep up the good work.

What an eloquent mowing, Citizen SMASH!
Wonderful job you are doing! Thanks for keeping us informed.
The audio of MAjor Pain brought tears to my eyes! I wish I was half as eloquent and brave as he - thanks to all of you!
I hate having to work all the time and missing this!!!
I'll be there THIS Friday...Count on it.
Missed Maj Pain AND Blackfive...
JUST f'ing DAMN!!!!!!!!!
Tsgl, Thanks for the ping!! Looks like I missed some good stuff!
Loved the speech, Smash!! I wish I could have heard it in person.
Loved the shirt, Maj Pain. I need one of those!
PleaDeal and Trooprally, Great photos and AAR! I hope the Mrs is doing better!
You can't beat freeping with the DC Chapter, I highly recommend it. I'm looking forward to my next opportunity to hold the line for our heroes at WR.
With slight modification of language, I echo Concrete Bob's comment: DANG!! I missed some good visitors. Glad Smash had some Major backup dealing with those folks. (I can't see the pictures here but saw the Major's shirt (back of) on Smash's site. They've been saying that about me for years.)
You'll have to move to here, seems like you are here more than there. :-))
Seriously, other than those who drive to Walter Reed, I think you have supported the Walter Reed FReep more than anyone else. Dolly Cali is also way up there. A sincere Thanks.
[Mrs] T is doing better, Thanks. She's resting up for the Saturday's Rally.
Looking forward to your next visit.
Outstanding report and pix, Plea Deal! Perfect in every way except your misspelling of "gummint business." Should have been "gummit bidness." LOL!
I missed ya a few weeks ago. ya gotta get out of the concrete and back to the front...'git r done' for me this friday night.
I'm not finished with the moonbats...
ya hear that you stupid liberals...Daddy's coming...and he's STILL PO'd..
Thanks for the kind words! You guys are the best, and doing a fine job of holding the line! I'll be back asap.
Give the Mrs my best.
You guys are awesome!
I loved your blog during your time in Kuwait, SMASH.
Thank you for everything you've done for this great nation.
Major Pain is...hopefully...a MAJOR pain for those who "use" our heroes. ;o)
I send you both major kudos.
I'm glad you're coming back this week, but royally bummed that I won't be there!!!! Got another weekend-long commitment I can't break.
FReep 'em good for me!
