Posted on 03/17/2007 5:15:06 PM PDT by SouthernBoyupNorth
Here are the few pictures I took from the GOE today. Thanks to all the FReepers I met y'all are a good bunch! There were so many folks there to give the antiwar bolshevicks hell it was heartwarming. I did not get a lot of pics cause my hands were full with one of Buford P.s placards. THe thing was like a wind sail.
And of course the AFTERMATH of the peacnick envirowackos.... man these IDIOTS are PIGS!!!! These are the people who are concerned with the state of our planet???????? After seeing this they have no room to talk.
Peaceniks are apparently a pollutant all by themselves.
Michelle Malkin Bump!
Any near confrontations with the unwashed masses?
Thanks for the pics and for being there!
They don't seem to have jobs, and when they are finished with their march they leave their mess for someone else to clean up.
What a waste o oxygen.
Great pics... thanks!
Unbelievable lack of respect shown by the littering seditionists.
Thanks for the photos. I've been seeing clips of GOE al day long on FOXnews. I'm glad they gave you the coverage you deserved.
Thanks to everyone there for showing your loyalty to our country and your love for our Troops!
how many people showed up? 30?
I just sent a link to this thread to my son in Iraq...he'll enjoy it.
Your trash photos remind me of a Grateful Dead concert we went to at UVa in Charlottesville. The "town" was all haughty about the whole thing and multiple letters to the editor and community overall huff was raised over the mess the Deadheads would leave in their wake.
We were there (though not deadheads or preppies). There was lots of trash about the stadium after the concert, but it wasn't deadhead stuff. It was UVa student stuff, preppie stuff, lots of empty beer cans. Yeah, the air was a little thick with funny-looking-cigarette smoke up in the cheap seats where we were sitting, but the potheads actually picked up after themselves (something I've never seen with a kegger).
Thanks for the pics and for being there. It was nice to see Memorial Bridge close up again. Brought back fond memories of my tours at Ft Myer South Area.
Thanks for the pics, esp. the one of Michelle Malkin!!!
Great pics. Gosh, the peaceniks are messy bunch aren't they?
It was good to see you today. I didn't get down to the traffic circle until the moon-bats had passed. I got stuck up at the stage and Kristinn had us Gold Star folks say a few words right at the end of the ceremony.
Michelle Malkin was there! How absolutely cool!
Great pics, thanks!
One of the very first things I learned in the military was to pick my trash (or rather never to throw it down in the first place). Yeah, Momma taught me that too, but she never drove the point home by making me police acres and acres for hours picking up everything from cigarette butts to stray lint.
When Hillary was hawking her book, she came to CA and we protested the bookstore where she was signing books. We walked around the bookstore when we first got there, and I was in total shock at the amount of garbage all over the place. The store had put out huge garbage cans, but when they became full the mob just threw their garbage toward the can. It was disgusting.
But .. we didn't stay and clean up the bookstore's mess. They invited her and her friends left a big mess .. maybe the bookstore will think twice about inviting her back.
And .. if people remember back to the Reagan memorial - when he was lying in state - THERE WAS VERY LITTLE GARBAGE ANYWHERE AROUND THE CAPITOL. I remember the media commenting on it - because the left ALWAYS LEAVES A HUGE MESS.
Thanks for the report & pics!
Sorry I could not make it...something I ate last night had me sick as a dog all morning. By the time I felt better, it was 6PM. I am POd I didn't make this.
The left IS a mess.
great job, thank you
Great job!! It was indeed a great day! Thanks to every Freeper that showed up. It was COLD and WINDY, yet we stood down the moonbats!!!!
Hey, im sorry i couldnt make it (i dont drive yet), but im so glad you guys stood up to those anti-american enemies. im proud of you all
The sight of so many Veterans on the National Mall doing their duty to protect this great Nation, AGAIN, was breathtaking.
What do expect from a collective that refuses to bathe?
Indeed. I thought it particularly ironic that our area was spotless after the event, and the oh-so-environmentally-holier-than-thou moonbat's area looked like a trash dump.
God bless all those who attended in support of our Troops.
MORE FUN AT YOU TUBE...
A MOST EXCELLENT SYNOPSIS....!!!
WHEN THE CHICKEN SH*T ATTACKS THE GATHERING OF EAGLES....
I would say there were 8-10,000 patriots all over. The gathering at the tent area, around the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and the Lincoln Memorial. These included Rolling Thunder, Free Republic, Protest Warriors and those who knew about the Gathering of Eagles.
After the moonbat march began across the bridge toward Arlington, they wouldn't let GoE people "mix in". Some were able to come over toward the end of the parade, but they stayed on the sidewalk toward the outside of the anti-war marchers. Those of us who went over to the circle (including SouthernboyupNorth) went over around 11am. Their march didn't start until 12:30pm. We wanted to set up our MOAB (mother of all banners) well in advance of their arrival, and there were about 50-60 of us who went early.
Let's just say the message on the banner made them very angry. They got close enough for a handshake if we'd wanted to, but then the motorcycle cops cleared them away from our curb, and the mounted police pushed them back even further. We were reduced to just shouting and taking pictures of eachother.
Great Pictures. Thanks to all.
Compare the way the Liberal Losers drops their trash anywhere compared to the Conservatives who understand the meaning of stewardship.
After Dan's Bake Sale in Fort Collin, Co., it was noted that the city didn't have to send crews out to clean up the streets since there was no garbage needing cleaning up afterwards. IIRC, the only thing that was broken was a planter, and that was done accidently by an LEO's horse.
So, Algore and Company, just who walks the Walk?
Great pictures! Thanks to all for being there!
When you post your Honor Roll/Thank You reply for the Arlington Circle detail, make sure you post it here ... or at least a copy. SouthernBoy was instrumental in helping me man the Lincoln Memorial and then get all the "GO TO HELL TRAITORS..." MOAB gear over to Arlington.
Kudos also go to concreteBob, a guy named Carter from Richmond, and one other Freeper who's name escapes me for holding my patented "wind-catching" signs at the Lincoln.
Sorry I didn't think to take a pic of you with your camera. Should have a pic of you on your own thread.

There's a ton more great pics like these
