Skip to comments.A Gathering of Eagles - These Colors Don't Run, Pro Troop Rally Live Thread
Posted on 03/17/2007 9:12:15 AM PDT by mdittmar
I was feeling so sad because I was supposed to be there--Mother Nature intervened--but these marvelous photos help to make up for it.
I can only say if I were on the other side just the sight of those veterans would make me think twice very rapidly--I'd be running in the opposite direction!!
Fox News has had some great shots and estimate that rather than the "hundreds of thousands" there are probably 6,000!!
THANKS for the thread!!!
There are basketball games on TV...
MSNBC lady said, that the crowd was much smaller than expected....but the day is NOT over yet! LOL
She also made excuses for the low crowd by talking about the bad weather and so many who wanted to be there couldn't get there. HA
I didn't see anything on MSNBC about the patriot counter protest, but FNC has been doing a good job of reporting both sides. Fair and balanced, you know!
Yes, and a Anna Nicole update, and a comment about Paris Hilton's hair--But if anyone tuned into those things gets their head out of their butt, your future is happening in the cold of DC.
This what the Commies are seeing...a GROUNDSWELL OF PATRIOTS!!
BTW...DON'T PISS OFF THE BIKERS!!
tried calling albion wilde & gunsareOK & neither answered. I imagine it is difficult to get thru.. I have a few more numbers I might try.
I am leaving here about 2 ish..unless I call & make it later..
"...your future is happening in the cold of DC."
Congress is home for the weekend...
marking my place here with thanks mdittmar for the thread. Our guys have been in my prayers all week - I am so proud - Reagan proud.
I'll bet that some of our people are getting mixed in to that count and they don't even have that many!
Top O' the St. Patrick' Day mornin' to you El Gato!!!
I read an article that said that the weather is keeping the ANTI-wimps away!!! LOL
Yeah...I was figuring as much.
Very proud of Rolling Thunder and the other groups for representing SO well yet again.
God Bless them all out at the Gathering of Eagles!
From what i've been told, there are
about 5K patriots who showed up for
the GoE, but that they are spread out
over at least 3 different
monuments/locations, but now that the
march has started, and the sites
protected, they are moving to
designated areas along the march route.
There is something to consider...at
the end of the march, at the Pentagon,
the DefeatTraitors, plan to hold
3 hours of speevches and such from
their celebrity cootie leaders.
So there may be a bigger turn
out for the anti-americans, when
joined by those that weren't
committed enough to do the march
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Hundreds of anti-war demonstrators and supporters of the U.S. policy in Iraq shouted at each other Saturday from opposite sides of a street bordering the National Mall as protesters formed a march to the Pentagon to denounce a war entering its fifth year.
The anti-war group carried signs saying "U.S. Out of Iraq Now," "Stop Iraq War, No Iran War, Impeach" and "Illegal Combat." The other side carried signs saying "Peace Through Strength," "al Qaeda Appeasers On Parade" and "We Are At War, Liberals Root For the Enemy."
FReeping from work today. That photo is awesome!
Just called Kristinn & told him about the same Fox News report. They look GREAT and make America PROUD!
But brrrrr... they gotta be cold. TRUE COURAGE & HONOUR!
Thanks for the MSNBC report, Laverne...
So far, Fox has mentioned the "counter protest" a couple of times...wish they would actually say "Gathering of Eagles" though.
The cops mmay have cut off cell
service, if they think that there
are those who'd use their cell
phones to coordinate illegal
they can do that? geeze I didn't know that.
Those who refuse to support and defend a state have no claim to protection by that state.
Killing an anarchist or a pacifist should not be defined as "murder" in a legalistic sense.
The offense against the state, if any, should be "Using deadly weapons inside city limits," or "Creating a traffic hazard," or "Endangering bystanders," or other misdemeanor.
Awesome pics, thank you!!!!
Thanks for the live action report.
Metro Stops closest to the area
how the heck did you get thru to K?
I tried both numbers & no answer & mailbox full..
I like the way you (Lazarus?) think
The world famous FReeper's St. Patrick's Day ballad, by DFU:
Thanks for posting these pictures.
I'm double celebrating this weekend...
1. My son, a Marine, came back home from Iraq, Tuesday morning!!
2. Seeing all these Patriots in DC standing up to the creeps!!
Catherine Herridge just reported a few minutes ago that 222 of the moonbats were arrested last night for misbehaving
I'm not sure if they've done
it in the US yet, but they have
in France, the UK and other
countries to deal with large
groups of soccer hooligans
who were coordinating strret
battles between rival groups.
France i *think* was using the
tactics during their riots,
as the street "kids" were
using them to coordinate
their attacks, and avoidance
of the gendarmes.
This one looks like a Civil War battle scene.
Come to think of it, it is. The Reds, with yellow sign (perfect color for the Cut and Run crowd), against ranks of Patriots with American flags. Looks like our side is about to flank the Traitors.
Jeff is there and is taking photos with his cell phone and posting them. Fantastic shot about 12:30 of a patriotic Eagle!
Wish we could get all these threads coordinated.
Patriots were spread in three different areas; Constitution Gardens, Lincoln Memorial and at the Wall. He reports Constitution Gardens is rated to hold 10,000 and they had the place FILLED! Don't know if that means they were spread out or packed in though so the Patriots easily had a few thousand for the rally presentation.
The crowd has dispersed to occupy the three FReep locations along the Commie Death March route to the Pentagon and I imagine they will be giving the Moonbats an earfull.
Consider this: nothing like this has ever happened before. The commies have never seen a sizeable opposition to their anti-victory protests now or during Vietnam. That all changed today and I'm not quite sure how they'll react now that the sleeping giant has been awakened.
Kristinn also reports that even during the sleet there wer about 60 FReepers at Walter Reed last night. Keep an eye out for that AAR
EAGLES AND FREEPERS UP!!!
"My son, a Marine, came back from Iraq, Tuesday morning"
Congratulations! Please give your son a hug for everyone of us, tell him we owe him more than we can ever repay for his service and that of his buddies. Hope he is enjoying these photos.
I can see your smile from here!!! A few tears there, too.
God Bless all our troops and our veterans. They are standing tall at the Wall today!
Another great photo. Let's see, I see one American flag over there.
They shouldn't be. A lot of those GOE guys look like they could do crowd control all by themselves.
These are the comments of one person at the Gathering of Eagles location. CNN calls it a counterdemonstration. A "news" channel would of course want to be fair and balanced. Did I say news? /s
Great pix. Thanks for posting.
Thank you for the report! Glad you/he got thru to each other.
Funny looking at the crowd & color in the one pix.. the noonbats colors are full of 'fun' rainbow/clown appearance, aren't they?
Nice for a 4 year old's birthday party!
Our colors represent our values.. Red/white/blue
Thank you !! And God bless you, Angelwood and all who are there. These colors don't run BUMP!
I ran into the same problem so I sent him a TEXT. I also asked FReeper Angelwood to have him call me.
I would dearly love to have seen the looks and the Commies faces when they saw all the Patriots and bikers HeHeHe!
This is what has me so thrilled about this. We just let them take over last time, not realizing (at least I certainly didn't) what the affect would be. That is a lesson well learned and obviously not forgotten.
All notations for this should be under the headline:
"The Day Everything Changed: America Strikes Back!"
Let's throw some liberal hyperbole right back at them...
thanks.. LIke everything else in my life I am behind times. My phone doesn't text.. very basic.
Yes, I wanted so much to be there. I had 5 gig of memory cards & 12 sets of batteries for my digital camera ready to go.
BTW.. I have tried to get the live stream on CSpan (I know, I know) but it is better than nothing..
there is just someone talking. WOnder if they decided to drop the coverage?
I am NOT a strong techie so might be doing something wrong. Is there any LIVE feed at all? (I dont have cable)
