Patriots Rally II - DC Chapter/Registered are Ready - Be There!
17 Oct. 2002 | DC Chapter/Registered

Posted on 10/17/2002 2:02:33 PM PDT by VaMarVet

The D.C. Chapter of Free Republic invites all FReepers and lurkers in good standing, as well as their friends and families, to join us in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, October 26, 2002 for the Patriots Rally for America II.

As the United States prepares to take the next step in the war on terrorism, we will be gathering to show support for our troops, America and to serve as a patriotic counter-point to the anti-American leftists who will be holding an "anti-war" rally and march the same day in D.C.

The "anti-war" rally, organized by International ANSWER, will be held right next to the Vietnam War Memorial on the Mall at Constitution Gardens, a safe four blocks away from our rally site at the Washington Monument.

The Patriots Rally for America will feature speakers and recorded music. Supporters are encouraged to bring large American and Gadsden flags. Also, please bring signs bearing messages supporting America, our troops and the war on terrorism.

The anti-American left will be fearmongering that day; raising their tired old cliches of quagmires, body bags and blood for oil. Their real message is that America is an evil nation and should not defend itself against any threats.

They dream of re-living the glory days of the Sixties, when spitting on soldiers and burning the flag were 'cool.'

While we respect their First Amendment rights to speak out (indeed, several of our members fought to protect those rights), we vehemently disagree with their message and will not allow them to take to the streets unanswered.

Members of the D.C. Chapter are financing the Patriots Rally for America, but we could use some help. We have pared back our budget for this rally to around $4,000 compared to the $7,000 we spent on last April's Patriots Rally.

The cost for staging, sound and porta-potties will be around $3,500. We are budgeting $500 for incidental costs.

If you would like to help, please click this link.

As always, the D.C. Chapter's rules for demonstrating will be in effect. Briefly, they are: No violence, no racism, no profanity, no threats, no provocations, obey the law and treat all law enforcement officers with respect.

When: Saturday, October 26, 2002 from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m., rain or shine.

Where: The Washington Monument at the corner of 17th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW

Wish I lived closer to D.C. - but I'll be with you Freepers in spirit, and bumping the thread if there is one.

Did Registered do the job on the graphic? Nicely done that.

My husband got bumped from his flight last week and I have a free ticket to anywhere in the US. I was looking at CPAC, but this might be more fun. Can you recommend any affordable ($50) hotels.

I know DC has good public transportation, and that parking is astronomically expensive, so without the expense of a rental car, this may actually work!

And I am delighted to have, again, the opportunity to begin the festivities and whip up the "motley crowd." That's the only kind of crowd for me.

You will have no regrets if you show for this - activism and patriotism at its best. There are hotels and motels that have the rates you are interested in - off hand (because I live here) - I cannot provide a list. That said, HEY Fellow FReepers - help out Dutchgirl! Also - there may be FReepers in good standing that would put you up.

The Patriots need a rally, after losing 3 straight. I guess we wont be seeing a Super Bowl rematch this year.

You know I will be! Look at all those handsome, strong men that will be looking out for me and the rest of the feminine contingent! You couldn't ask for a better group!

Miss seeing you on Paltalk. Ran into Katie online one night. Bobby was on the other night. Lots to tell you, but I'll have to get out the pen and paper to do it.

Hi, friend,

Not only will I be there, I have the honor of giving the first speech. The task, of course, is to work the crowd into an insane frenzy before charging down the Mall against the enemy, like the next to closing scene in Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Let's just hope that English Bobbies do not stop our charge.

Cheers,

Congressman Billybob

Dang. Thanks for the encouragement. I thought I could make it- but I got called for jury duty the 28th, and can't risk getting bumped on the flight back. I will be following any live threads for that day. Eagles Up!

Can you point us to the url for this DU discussion? The two rallies are going to be 4 blocks apart this time, but we have some ideas from lessons learned last April.
