Good piece of writing.

I remember a FReep that only he and I did one rainy day when Code Pinko decided to come up to Aberdeen Proving Ground and pay them a visit. I don’t have pics, but I do have Hi-8 tape of that event and a number of others.

He was a true patriot.

Bump from another 98’er, but from SoCal, not flyover country. Dr. Raoul will be sorely missed. May he rest in peace.

A beautiful tribute.

I make sad note that AGreatPer is mentioned in the "she's standing on a box" anecdote. May they both Rest in Peace.

Oh Kristinn, I would so love to be there Monday. The good Doc inspired our little group here in Missouri and his AAR’s were always the berries. We’ll miss him terribly. Also, thank you Kristinn for all your help over the years.

I find it comforting to think that Doctor Raoul, Tony Snow, BCM, BKO, Congressman BillyBob, AGreatPer, and all the other departed FReepers might be putting a good word for us with the Almighty.

This is really depressing news, Kristinn. Seems like we’ve lost quite a few good Freepers in the last year or so, and Dr. Raoul was one of the best. Prayers for his family, and also for Dr. Raoul’s soul.

There was a great post I remember from the Clinton years. A reporter from CNN was trying to do a story from the White House. Somebody yelled “Hey camera man! Pan down so you can show Clinton’s hand up his a** working his jaw!” . Sounds like something the good Doctor would have done.

Thank you Kristinn for the great tribute to Raoul.

He will be sorely missed as he taught us much. The liberals in this world would go down in flames if we just had a hundred Raouls.

God Bless Raoul and his family

Sent out to my email list:

Last week, I received an email from Trooprally and then a call came the next day from Kristinn, both to let me know that a Great American Legend had passed away. Dr. Raoul, a Legend of a Man who loved our Troops and who exercised regularly the freedom they provide!! I first met Dr Raoul on the Cannon bldg. corner in DC back in what seems now ages ago. He seemed impressed that I came all the way from Chicago and with a permit, no less, to stand on the corner for 3 days in support of our Troops. I remember thinking how he sized me up, truly, and then when he began spewing his vast amount of knowledge to me, I knew I must have passed the test.

Dr. Raoul was a fierce supporter of this country and her Troops and he was a man to be reckoned with if you in any way exhibited traitorous behavior toward either!!! His robust unadulterated zest and vigor to take on anyone who defamed our Troops was truly a sight to see. These last couple of years he was no longer around but I kept him on my email list and the emails never bounced back. I understood he had his family to care for and I often thought of him when I sent my scathing emails out about Suzi and the Pinkos or Adam Kokesh and the traitorous IVAW. Somehow I just knew that wherever he was, he enjoyed knowing that the little traitors weren't getting away with their vile charades.

Below is a beautiful tribute to Dr. Raoul written by Kirstinn. Gateway Pundit (thank you Jim!!)posted a short version of Kristinn’s tribute with a beautiful video which truly shows the heart of this great Patriot.

Upon hearing this sad news, I shared with Trooprally and Kristinn that God must have needed help up there straightening out a Pinko lingering in Purgatory!
I know one thing for sure, our Troops welcomed one of their biggest supporters with loving arms!

There will NEVER EVER be another Dr. Raoul. May he rest in peace and may his spirit continue to inspire each of us to fight for those who fight for us!

I am sorry to hear of his passing. May he rest in peace. I recall being at a White House protest in 1999.

Was the time of my life.

I recall doing the Cops Cheer and mocking Nora O’Donnell while she was doing a piece from “the swamp”. We were singing a riff on the battle hymn of the republic which was clearly audible on the report to which she address us as “patriotic” because she simply could not speak to the words.

He will be sorely missed.

Thank you, so very much, for posting this tribute to Doctor Raoul. I attended several FR events but I never had the honor of meeting this good man. I recall reading his posts but I’ve learned so much more about him through this tribute. I know he will rest in peace because he was an honest man and a patriot. Condolences to his family and friends. Thank you, Doctor Raoul, for your courage and love of our great country.

Kristinn, your tribute is both incredibly sad and inspiring, at the same time. You eloquently encapsulate what Dr. Raoul was all about .

Dr. Raoul's energy and commitment was both inspiring and life-altering to so many of us who witnessed his passion. He served to give many of us the courage to stand up for what was wrong, and to actually speak out in public....something we would usually be most hesitant to do!

While he often chose a comical way of presenting himself as a critic of a variety of issues, those who knew him realized that there was brilliance behind his signs and costumes. He was a genius who needed to express himself. He was a patriotic American who saw what was wrong and tried to speak out.

Kristinn, you have been no less instrumental in countless ways. You have also spent years of your time and money confronting what is wrong. Like Dr. Raoul, you have inspired all of us with your dedication, courage, intelligence, and sense of purpose. Everyone here knows this. Thank you for being the American patriot that you truly are.

And, thank you for this memorable tribute to Dr. Raoul. He will always be remembered.

Kristin, this is a wonderful tribute to an extraordinary man.

I count as one of my life’s best experiences standing with you, the good Doctor, AGreatPer, and others at the White House Saturday Freeps a few times in 1999 and 2000. Ranks right up there with being at the March for Justice in October, 1998 in DC to call for Clinton’s impeachment.

I hope Dr. Raoul’s example will inspire Freepers to Freep on. Our nation is in great peril, and good people need to speak up.

Please extend to his family the heartfelt thanks and admiration from us Freepers, and please give us an after action reportof the services.

I was fortunate that the good Doctor asked me to ‘play’ Hillary for a Halloween FREEP at the tourist exit from the White House. It was a Saturday and the DC Chapter was out in force! What a fantastic FREEP!

I wore a black robe & pointed witch hat with NY logo; carried a Yankees pendant and carpet bag with this sign: ‘Scrape the Bottom, Vote for Rodham.’ Raoul was in his bright Red Devil suit with a sign saying ‘My Sister Married Bill Clinton’ and a big arrow pointing to me!

The tourists were doubled over in laughter and many wanted photos with us. I recall especially some from China who were amazed at what we were doing!

Doctor Raoul was such an inspiriation. I will always recall is quick mind, great wit and courage.

May he rest in peace and may his family be comforted by the knowledge that he is so loved.
