Peaceniks Subdued in NYC
10/7/01

Posted on 10/07/2001 8:12:36 PM PDT by LisaFab

Forgive me if someone else has posted this info. I've not yet seen another after-action report on this afternoon's FReep of 'peace' protestors in Union Square park.

We had a small but dedicated group of about 75 FReepers & walk-ups counter-protesting the "Give Peace A Chance" group occupying Union Square park.

I arrived about 2:00 PM and the reception we received from passersby was electric! Horns were honking and we were given the 'thumbs up' sign by 2/3 of those who drove by.

Many took photos and I would like to think that our demonstration was the reason that the peaceniks moved their 'festivities' down the street about 4 blocks.

We could barely hear their inane and monotonous droning as we drowned them out with chants of: "Hey Osama, it's time we bombed ya!" Little did we know at the time that bombs were indeed dropping in Afghanistan.

The indomitable RaceBannon closed the FReep with a hearty 'three cheers' for the NYPD, which was well received by all.

All in all a great day for America.

Nice work today, guys.

I was in the Barnes & Noble on Union Square when the FReep went down, and it was a beautiful sight to behold.

Excellent. How many peaceniks? On my way home tonight I was listening to NPR(only because AM radio doesn't work in my car) and some caller said that 12,000 peaceniks attended. She said this about 12,000 times.

Past experience tells me that is probably a lie. I'm just curious to know how far off she was.

I would say there were about 500-700 in the park. They seemed oddly subdued. Maybe they heard of the counter-strikes and were shamed into relenting.

Hard to say what was on the minds of these people.

That would be because there are no minds in these sheeple. I'm all for the Bill of Rights but this is close to active sedition during a time of war.

In every war, in every person, there is a limit to any idea. Results have to be gained before the shoeple tire of the game, and un-American displays such as this just shorten the time span.

Please lay off the crack pipe before you go online. Thank you and have a nice night.

Sounds like the same arguement the peaceniks make about our fighting back: That we'll only "breed" more violence.

Quite the opposite is true -- get in their face every time they try something, it will demoralize them (especially the support for the Freep from passers-by and the public). Ruin their day every chance you get.

Good job NYC.

Absolutely no way that they could be mistaken for 12,000 then? Sounds like the million moms. LOL!

Whoa -- what are you smoking???

There have been hundreds of Freeps around the country (DC chapter Freeped Gore's house for weeks last year) and never any violence. Geez, get a grip fella, sounds like you have no clue at all what you're talking about.

Great show, Freepers! We must never let the anti-Americans have the megaphone of the street protest as their sole territory again!

I remember Nam.

Doubt it. Your types won the day in the 60's but that s**t is OVER! I'll not converse with you any longer.

IF you want justification for my actions today, take a trip to ground zero.

Over and out comrade.

It is one heck of a stretch to equate a peaceful counter protest with Kent State.

Oh goody, here's LLAN-DDEUSANT posting another one of his stupid, anti-American rants again.
Maybe the terrorist acts in New York and D.C. were just simple cries of help from some poor, oppressed Muslims.
We should try to understand and feel their pain.
Tell me, LD, how many times did you vote for Clinton/Gore??

Tsk, tsk, Osama-man.

Don't worry, FReeping ain't a contact sport. The only people who might possibly ever be caught busting heads will be those who can do it leagally (NYPD).

Mine sign read "You're either with us or with the terrorists!" with a nice American flag in the middle. One guy hand-painted an ostrich with the saying: "Get your heads out of the sand"

Some signs read: "Welcome to NY Traitors!" Many just gave thanks to the NYPD & NYFD, or identified the 'peace' protestors as cowards, traitors and worse!

Great questions all, and ones we wanted to ask the peaceniks but were not permitted to. Believe me, these peoples' only commmonality is their hatred for America.

Hi, retard.

I carefully read your post #17 with your condescending lecture. I then read the other 16 posts looking for examples of mayhem, busted heads, etc. that you refered to.

Couldn't find any.

How come?

You shouldn't do dumb stuff like this. It makes the opposition redouble their efforts and embues them with a real motivation to go at it again. It also makes you look like you haven't a clue about the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

"The WTC disaster is a monument to the amoral policies of Reagan, Bush and Clinton.."

And with that, we know all we need to know about you.

This quote will be archived. You'd might as well change your screen name now, and save yourself a little pain.

C-Span had a feed from the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Channel) on a couple of hours ago which did a story on this. The CBC said that there were more than expected numbers of "peace" protesters, but the CBC appeared to devote the meat of the story to the pro-American counterprotesters. I sure alot of FReepers wound up on Canadian news tonight! I wish I was there.

Don't waste your time, chief. LLAN is a troll of the first order.

Just remember that "there are none so blind as those who will not see," and you'll understand LLAN just fine ;)
