I guess where cf_river_rat got hung up was that this story is about what happened during an FR chapter "activism/protest event."
Should he put it in the NEWS sidebar instead?
We, the counterdemonstrators and pro-American group who razzed Code Pinko and Jihad Jane were not "disruptive". We were vibrant, somewhat loud (the police asked that the bullhorns volume be lowered so that the Pinkos would not be disrupted, and the volume was lowered). However, our signs and voice power were certainly heard and seen, by hundreds of passerbys who honked their horns and waved.
Sparling was with us for a while and he was polite and gave interviews.
His missing leg was REAL. So was his 82nd Airborne t shirt.
Our group included two Vietnam war POWs, Mike Benge and Larry Stark. Both know something about Hanoi Jane, and Mike and I, as well as Col. Bud Day and Dolf Droge made a documentary about her communist background (in 1988 - "The Unofficial Autobiography of Jane Fonda").
This communist bitch and her red friends will never get a pass from us.
