Puget Sound Chapter Seattle DOUBLE FREEP After Report
Libertina | October 6, 2002 | Libertina

Posted on 10/06/2002 10:42:35 PM PDT by Libertina

The Washington State Puget Sound Chapter AFTER RALLY Report on Baghdad Jim McDermRAT and the Seattle Anti-War march was a great success!
We arrived at Baghdad Jim’s Town Hall meeting. When McDermRAT arrived we surrounded him and called out “Stay in Baghdad” and held up signs. The sign I was especially proud of read:
”Saddam GOOD
Bush BAD”
This is Bagdad Jim’s
mind on drugs.

LOL The quotations marks drove the lefties up the wall because they said they weren’t his exact words. I suggested they get over it. Patriot62, his friend, father, and 3 of my GOP friends were present. We asked the police if we could go inside with our signs, they shrugged their shoulders – so IN we went LOL! I stayed outside when the others went in so I could continue Freeping latecomers. A policeman walked over to me and said, “Unofficially your sign is the best.” Referring to the mind on drugs sign. About a half hour late, a large group of dirty , young, sign carrying protestors walked up. They couldn’t get in because the building was too full, so they just turned around and left. They didn’t even stay for ONE minute. Funny. Outside there were plenty of liberals to have words with and I did. Interestingly enough, Jim’s Republican opponent, Carol Cassady , also came and campaigned out side with us. LOL

Inside, Traitor Jim called President Bush an emperor, said the US was responsible for the Iraq’s Leukemia, and worked his people into a nasty frame of mind for the march through Seattle. FReepers were interviewed by several papers, including independent rags. See this thread for Patriot62’s report on McDermott (Sunday Freep #1 ). Patriot62’s report Before leaving I went to use the bathroom. When the “lady” in there with me realized I was a Republican she said it was unbelieveable that “their” taxes paid for the Community Center and how dare “Republican groups” used the facilities. Pretty overdeveloped sense of ownership don’t you think?

By this time we were pumped and ready for Freep #2. It was 2:30, we got into the car and made our way into the belly of downtown Seattle, Westlake Park. We finally set up across the street, but along the “parade” route - directly in front of a Star Bucks coffee shop. Right away we attracted a lot of attention –. I came prepared with a relevant sign “Morning protest, Afternoon Latte. Seattle lefties are a joke. Protest somewhere that matters.” We were joined by SleavelessinSeattle, MarkM, Aria, Elcie30, several people who happended to walk by and see us, and some assorted KVI listeners who heard about the rally on radio. About 31 in Patriots in all. (I have AMAZING photos coming.)

The great Unwashed were VERY unwashed. McDermRAT marched with them. There were about 5000 protestors, carrying huge paper mache figures, a large world, Praxis artists, and I met a man who was employed by lawyers as an “official observer.” Of course he was looking for any incidents of “violence” so he could generate a lawsuit. I give a word of thanks to the DC FREEPERS, because through their last rally report I had heard about these people and knew what they were doing. BTW We were joined by a wife and husband who had special talent. Her husband was a Notre Dame Marching Band Alum and he had played the previous day at South Bend when Norte Dame whipped Stanford. He brought his coronet and played The Star Spangled Banner, America the Beautiful and we all sang! It was wonderful and uplifting. I really wonder, how many of the great unwashed who watched us, secretly longed to be singing along? We said the Pledge of Allegiance and really saw their mouths hang open. :)

Some pf the protestors in the park got a little out of control and angry at our presence but we had the road between us. Someone had a BUSH SUCKS sign. Our side called out “Wasn’t that another administration”??? LOL There was not one American flag as we looked out upon them. One nutburger woman kept pointing at us then putting her finger down her throat. Very strange. We just laughed. Vile language and signs were common.

Now things got very interesting. As the huge mass of unwashed protestors appeared at the top of the hill, marching down to their finish line, 2 RAT policemen allowed the protestors across the street from us to CROSS our yellow tape barricade and break up our group physically. I contested this action but he smirked and said it was a “public area.” At that point there were some confrontations with the lefties and we were told by the police they couldn’t (or wouldn’t) protect us. Though when the marchers got abreast from us I actually went into the street to get pictures. People were hanging on lampposts and swarming everywhere. (Remember, this city is where the Mardi Gras party resulted in a big melee and a death. – you can understand why.) However, because the Oregon Act Up and terrorist WTO people weren’t there so I never felt in danger. (Perhaps just to busy taking photos to knowJ

One group had a sign “Americans who HATE America.” Another was “Anarchist’s against War” vile (but powerful) costumes included a man dressed in a George Bush mask and suit with dripping blood coming out his mouth. A man figure in a small bathtub with his erect male appendage a missile, Bush Murders women and children, F*ck the War, and an odd “I heard Reagan’s Administration was bad.”

I will be posting pictures in a day or two and will ping all who wish. These people are so ignorant, so simplistic, so hateful to this country that it is simply shocking. Well, we had a full day, and actually had fun! WE ended with a lovely dinner (without the unwashed) at Ivar’s with wine. We got interviews by 2 AP people, UP, a television network, numerous reporters. FR was given credit for organizing the rally. So far, the news media has blocked out ALL of our images, even the one at McDermRATS town hall meeting. They presented it as 100% support. Disgusting, yes. Biased, yes. Surprising, no. However, I’ll get the newspapers tomorrow and see if we are in print. Thanks for reading my After Report fellow Freepers. God Bless Free Republic, my beloved country, and my President George W. Bush!

LOL Liberal in an ultra lib district. Though Carol Cassady is working hard to win... little chance probably, the liberals love his trip to Baghdad.

This Floridian witnessed the cretin hippie protest march originally from my hotel room above, then at street level as I was losing my self control to avoid throwing things from eight floors above.

Looked for you all in the crowd, would have joined if I knew where you were. Please ping me with the pics. I saw two American flags that were not defaced with the peace symbol.

Turned to a man next to me who had the same look of disdain as I had on my face--explained to him **loudly** that if these protesters were in Iraq speaking out against Saddam, they would not live to tell their story.

God bless you for your efforts and your stand. I know He will, and did! You never know how He will use your actions ... what hearts and lives might be touched.

These people are useful idiots who haven't the slightest idea what is in store for most of them should our Constitutional Republic be completely overthrown as they wish. Some do and are our sworn enemies.

Keep up the good work, I wish I could have stood with you all.

Thanks for the ping, Libertina. WONDERFUL report! Love your sign, love your spirit, love your patriotism!

Please ping me for the the pictures. Looking forward to them.

Bless you and all those who stood with you.....and stay safe. I worry about my FReeping friends when they become surrounded by the great unwashed, liberal, idiot, peacenik types. They are anything but peaceful. And what is with the police saying that they couldn't or wouldn't protect you?!

Just be careful out there. :-)

Funny isn't it? The protestors would be the first to call him a pig, but HE sides with them! (Only those 2 were snippy though, the one other was fine. )But they did leave us on our own... that's Seattle for ya.

I will look forward to those pictures.

We truly have sappers within the perimeter, but with enough patriots manning the choke points, we can keep them from destroying us.

Again, God bless you for being there and standing so resolutely.

BTTT!

My 14 year old was disgusted at the news here in the Bay Area regarding all of the anti-war protests. I think he is warming up his trumpet for a Star Spangled melody over at the next SF FReep anti-anti-war protest.

GREAT JOB!!!

Good work!

Fyi - I spoke with the SPD at McTraitor's speech and in the course of things, asked why SPD didn't wear the American flag patch on their uniforms (Every policman in the America I grew up in wore theirs proudly, and it might be kind of nice to support our country now too).

I was told they were *prohibited* from doing so! The American flag is, quote, "Not Authorized", unquote. They could wear a little (thumbprint-sized) push-pin decal above their nametag if they chose (neither of the two cops, who were very nice, did).

Later, I did see a full-size American flag tucked into the buttcrack of some freak dragging it down Broadway behind him. He was walking just ahead of a prominent Seattle-based 'palestinian' terror-front group who used the Volunteer park staging area to rake in cash for 'humanitarian' needs.

Just another day in freak land.

Everyone agrees the man's rather dim...

No, we don't agree. The man has much more education than Gore, for instance, and comes across as much more intelligent to any thinking person.

They just realize there isn't much of a place for them in the SOCIETY.

In the immortal words of Dean Wormer, "Fat, lazy and stupid is no way to go through life, son." Being unwashed, smoking dope, and demanding the benefits of modern industrial society ("free" medical care, Starbucks lattes, etc) without being willing to work diligently for them, demanding others provide same - you're right, there isn't a place for them in my society. They need to grow up.

Wow thanks for your report. What a lot of ugly things Seattle contributes to this country. Defacing the flag???
I am disgusted. I don't think I would have been able to stay as calm as you apparently did.
I am glad you are safe.

I was pretty freaked out already as I walked away from this crowd as you might imagine...we left as a unit to avoid getting hassled although my female buddie there is a martial arts instructer and ALWAYS packs heat....What do you suppose was the last photo I took that afternoon, not 5 blocks from this demonstration of the unwashed and intellectually unencumbered?

Dosvedanya, Comrade! Had to take a shower when I got home...Too much Pachouli oil in the air!

Outstanding report of your double freep. Way to go, Puget Sound FReepers!

I'm sorry to hear about the Seattle police response to keeping you all safe and letting the other protesters break your ranks. Kudos to all of you for the courage it took to exercise your First Amendment rights in the face of such a large group in opposition.

The pictures on the thread are great. Will check back later to see more.

Keep up the good work and FReep On!
