Mods, this is real news (albeit a couple weeks stale dated) regarding American patriot activism.

If you feel it should be moved to Bloggers/Personal, please do so, but the Freeper community needs to see this. It's a call to action.

The movement is being called, “Overpasses for Obama’s Impeachment”, but organizers and participants aren’t limiting the focus or messages to that one thing.

Folks are organizing these groups all over the country as we speak. If you’re on Facebook, you can easily find them by searching on the name.

No more excuses, people. This is something that any of us can do to fight back. There are some coordinated large scale protests being planned by the group’s chief organizers, which will happen in the next month or so.

California? Strange, as no Republicans vote there. They must have been lurkers.

“If you’re on Facebook, you can easily find them by searching on the name.”

How do you find out about them if you refuse to join Facebook?

It really should.

This is about the simplest, easiest method of protest I've ever heard of. Any dozen people can get together with some flags, signs, and banners, and head for the nearest overpass to let the thousands passing know how they feel.

And don't think those dozen protesters won't inspire hundreds of others to do the exact same thing. This thing can go viral!

That's a good thing. Most got wise to that epic con-job.

I've already joined the Dallas - Ft Worth group via Facebook. I'll ask around and see what sort of channels there are for folks who aren't on Facebook.

Lafayette, Ca., every 9/11 a small group of us would wave flags on a busy overpass. Almost everyone driving by would honk in support. Every year it turns into a bigger event. It is a good venue.

Unfortunately, all this did was make a whole bunch of People stuck in traffic while driving on the Freeway upset at the Tea Party.

The law of unintended consequences. The local Media will not be praising the Patriots who participated in the demonstration, they will be blaming them for causing a Traffic Jam.

After all, they know what’s really important.

A message from one of the Overpasses state coordinators:

“There will be a Nationwide protest scheduled later in the year. This nationwide effort is called “The Wave” and will be handled by the state coordinators and Admins. The protests that are being held now are to gain national attention in the public and the press. It is our goal to have thousands protest during “The Wave” so please get involved with your local groups and prepare for the largest event of the year, lets influence the voting in 2014 by educating the public and sending a loud and clear message to D.C. We the people will not be silenced and we will hold those accountable who have committed crimes against the American people.”

Ann Whitten, Coordinator, State of Alabama.
