PROTECT THE SANCTITY OF ARLINGTON CEMETERY, Saturday, March 20,2010 - Notice #2
Feb. 10,2010

PROTECT THE SANCTITY OF ARLINGTON CEMETERY, Saturday, March 20,2010 - Notice #2

Some changes since the November notice was first posted.

First, we will still have a presence at Arlington Cemetery Memorial circle. More later in this thread.

The moonbats have change their abnormal plans from years past. This year they appear to be eliminating their march to the Pentagon. They plan on staying in D.C. to protest Obama’s handling of foreign affairs, from Afghanistan to Iraq to Haiti. But they have not yet mentioned any times or particulars. Either way, we’ll be in the Circle. If you want read their pablum, here is the link to their web site: http://answer.pephost.org/site/PageServer?pagename=ANS_homepage

Also, Cindy Sheehan has apparently taken up residence in DC. Starting the preceding Saturday, March 13, she plans to camp out on the Washington Monument grounds and block DC traffic through civil resistance.

Our Mission is to show real support for our troops and to let people know that just because Obama is being protested, he does not have our troops’ best interest in mind.

Our Plans for Saturday are to have a Support the Troops Rally and to use the Circle as a possible gathering point for those who will be in DC countering the moonbats. We’ll have our usual setup of tents, hot coffee and chocolate, banners, flags, and posters for I hope everyone. We’ll show America what real support for our troops looks like.

The Time that we’ll be in the Circle is from 10AM till 4PM. Times and locations to counter the moonbats have not yet been determined.

If you can donate to help defray costs, visit the DC Chapter web site, click the DONATE tag, and please donate. Jim Robinson has approved this request.

Also, Gathering of Eagles will be out protecting our Military Monuments and recruiter stations. Being that the moonbats will be demonstrating both Friday and Saturday, GoE will need extra help. Contact CONCRETEBOB if you can help.

The sanctity was compromised if not violated when they buried Tedlard Kennedy there last summer.

Looks like a busy time in D.C. this March. I hope folks take the time to come out and support our troops in between Tea Parties.

It’s my sorrowful duty to report that they gave it up.

My Dad’s out there too. One can see the wing of the Pentagon that was attacked on 9/11 from his gravesite.

Thanks 3D. Cell phone is all that is needed to call 911 and to take a pic or video.

Hopefully you’ll bring some good weather with you.

Are you questioning the spelling or agreeing with FrPR’s Post 9?

If it is the spelling, check out a Merriam Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary.

You're so right Lincoln learned how to steal land in Illinois when he was doing legal work for the railroads.

Is there going to be any effort to get the media to cover the moonbats?

Sadly, the sanctity of the land at Arlington Cemetery was first compromised if not violated when Abraham Lincoln first confiscated the rightful property of the family of General Robert E. Lee.

I'll drink to that, though I applaud all efforts aimed at keeping the moonbats from besmirching the final resting place of so many heroes...

Was there supposed to be a “/sarc off” after your question?

The media always covers the moonbats. Best we can do is get some face time, taking away from the moonbats getting all the attention. That is why our message is that Obambi’s ROE are killing our troops, or getting them in trouble as the 4 SEALS are now in.

Murtha said that the Haditha 8 were murders. They have all been vindicated and are free. But they spent years facing murder charges. A lot of the early incarceration was spent in keg chains.

Occasionally we get a few seconds on TV or in the rags, taking away from the moonbats time.

Not hardly.

I have noticed a massive deficit of coverage of Code Pink and company in the wake of Ø's inauguration. Almost like they no longer exist (or are not newsworthy)

How many stories did you see about Cindy Sheehan visiting Martha's Vineyard during Bambi's vacation there last summer? I counted exactly three. How many covering her annual visits to Crawford?

See, as far as the media is concerned, they were useful idiots that supported their (the media's) mission of undermining Bush. Now that their boy is in office, the moonbats are a non-entity. After all, the only ones who disapprove of him are "tea-bagging neo nazis" </sarc>

And coverage of the moonbats' displeasure with Ø is perfectly fine with me. Just as coverage of patriots' support for the troops while simultaneously expressing disgust at their CinC is good too. A CinC not worthy of the troops he commands. The more media given to those who oppose THE ONE, the better.

So no, I did not forget a sarc off.

From arlingtoncemetary.org:
The mansion, which was intended as a living memorial to George Washington, was owned and constructed by the first president's adopted grandson, George Washington Parke Custis, son of John Parke Custis who himself was a child of Martha Washington by her first marriage and a ward of George Washington.
Which of the Custis' abandoned any oath?

Obambi has the biased media doing his bidding and this could be a way to say - Hey, I’m being protested like Bush, so I’m strong on defense.

But you are correct in that any protest of Obambi is good, especially if it is covered by the press. I just don’t want O to use it to his advantage.

Things must be pretty quiet over there on your end of the Internet if you’ve got that much time and energy to devote to an obscure typo.

Not nearly as quiet as it must be where somebody has time to misrepresent what I said by bringing up George Washington’s stepgrandson. .....Speaking of obscure.

Nope, no changes.

Some Jewish groups are also countering ANSWER because the National Council of Arab Americans will also be protesting with them. They are meeting at 9:20 AM at Connecticut Avenue and M Street and 18 Street intersection.

But it is good to read that the moonbats have been fined thousands of $$$$ for putting up their posters on government traffic boxes, etc. This is even in Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago among some cities. I guess the ‘progressive’ cities need the money. :-))

They will primarily have a presence at several recruiter stations and at our military memorials on the Mall. Several will also join us. Not sure where on GoE the notice is.

Hooray! arrived in the night and catching up on my sleep today to be ready for George Mason tomorrow...birthday dinner for Grandson and then see you Saturday at Arlington.

I even saw people marching in some cities I passed through...St. Augustine and Richmond!

This is a week to remember in American History...hopefully a good memory!
