The Chill Wind of "Peace Protesters" at Walter Reed - Week #93
2/1/2007 | PleaDeal

Posted on 02/01/2007 8:33:56 PM PST by PleaDeal

On the Eve of "anti"-War at Walter Reed -- Week 93

Washington, DC, January 26, 2007-- Old Man Winter seems to have finally arrived in the Nation's Capital. It didn't get nearly as cold or windy as the pessimistic forecasters predicted, but is was no day at the beach.

Not a whole lot happened this Friday. We had FReepers from out of town who came to counter-protest the big United for Peace and Justice (and the Communist Way!) happening on the Mall on Saturday. The whole list of FReepers & FRiends in attendance last friday (If I missed anyone - please let me know!): Albion Wilde, Bill from MD*, BufordP, cf_river_rat and daughter Kristen all the way up from NC, Cindy-True-Supporter, Danielle*, Fraxinus, George & Ethel*, GunsAreOK, Jimmy Valentine's Brother, JoyJoyFromNJ, Just A Nobody, Kristinn, Lauren (Protest Warrior) and friend Meredith*, Olney-Keith, PleaDeal, PrezUSA222, Sarah from VA*, TFroatz, tgslTakoma, Tolerance Sucks Rocks, Tom the Redhunter, Trooprally [Mr.], VAFlagWaver.

Cute Conservatives

In case you missed one or two, here are all the related pre- and post-rally reports.

A few of the sites from last week at Walter Reed's gates.

Setting Up
Out-of-towners JoyJoyFromNJ, Kristen and Dad cf_river_rat from NC set up the Mother Of All Banners. tgslTakoma and Trooprally on either side.
MOAB
The MOAB is UP!
Bill's corner
Bill from MD*, Kristinn and Danielle* on the south side of Elder Street.
TR's corner
tgslTakoma, Cindy-True-Supporter and Trooprally.
Gate corner
Sarah*, newly minted FReeper Olney-Keith, JoyJoyFromNJ, VAFlagWaver and Ethel*.

With all the anti-American peace-niks in town, you'd think Code Pink could have rallied a few to join their "vigil" waaaaay down the block. It appears they had no takers and only turned over a few rocks to produce 11 anti-Troop sign holders.

Pinko Party
It appears the Pinkos left their asbestos flags at home this week. Most likely, they didn't want the Hollywood comrades to question their (un)patriotism!
Pinko ad
Billboard for the 'Peace' rally.
Hippy car
This car was sporting nearly every left-wing wacko cliche sticker. Click on the pic to see them better.

We got lots of honks, waves and cheers from passing motorists which just goes to show that most people, even in a deep blue town like D.C., really DO support the troops!

the Bus
The buses filled with wounded warriors and family coming back from
the weekly Fran O'Brien's dinner.

Short bus

We'll be back out at Walter Reed Friday night, February 2nd, from 6:30 until at least 9:30 at the intersection of Georgia Avenue and Elder Street, NW in Washington, D.C.

The wounded warriors inside the hospital are heartened by the sight of ordinary citizens cheering for them and displaying our thanks for the service and sacrifice they've made on our behalf.

A couple hours this Friday night is very little to give compared to what they've contributed!

If you can't get to D.C. to join us but would like to do something for the wounded, you can find a wealth of ideas by FReep-mailing Albion Wilde, Cindy-True-Supporter, VAFlagwaver or PleaDeal.

If you can't stand seeing anti-war, communist backed, 60's throwback hippies and self-absorbed, ungrateful Gen-X'ers defiling the memories of those who gave all in Vietnam - join us for the Counter ANSWER march on the Pentagon on March 17th! Just A Nobody will be keeping all the logistics on this thread. Thanks Justa!

I need some help.
Within the last few days a post included the organizations supporting the anti-US demonstrations. I thought I had bookmarker it but - guess not. It was an impressive list of long time anti-American organizations.

BLTN!

I liked the format. Figures that the lefties would drive a Jap car and that it would proudly proclaim residency in the nuclear free Takoma Park.

I too had anticpated a large collection of lefties but guess they were holding a cabal with Jihad Jane and Susan Saranrap.

Lots of info here. If anyone claims they never read about Saturday's Rally or the planned March 17 Rally, then they aren't awake.

Great job, PleaDeal!

This photo really says it all about the lefties:

They don't want war, BUT they want to "Free Palestine."
They don't want this war altho less than 800 soldiers per year are killed, BUT they support abortion, which claims 1.4 million American lives per year.
They're for peace, BUT they're "militant" in opposing religion.
They don't know God, BUT they know all the answers about U.S. foreign policy.
They say the war is for oil profits, BUT they won't allow drilling in Alaska so we can stop funding terror-sheltering regimes.
And so on, and so on.

CodePink has a lot of BIG BUTS.

I thought the PRO CHILD/PRO CHOICE was the strangest sense of non-logic. How can you be pro child and pro killing children? That sticker really highlights the total lack of logic in the liberal mind.

That looks like many a moonbat circus wagon I've seen prowling the streets of Austin (TX).

CodePink has a lot of BIG BUTS.

That's obvious.

Jodie has enough room there to list all 1,400 members of UFPJ.

It's not the size of the "buts" that matters -- there are lots of big-"but" women who look great. It's the fact that they apparently use their "buts" to do their thinking out of.
