DC Chapter Forms "Human Shield" to Protect White House Sunday, 1/19/03 -- After-Action Report
DC Chapter of Free Republic ^ | January 20, 1003 | Angelwood and tgslTakoma

Posted on 01/20/2003 2:36:33 PM PST by Angelwood

Kristinn came up with the idea to stage a freep at the White House and stand as Human Shields to protect the White House against the anti-war demonstrators organized and backed by IAC/ANSWER (a front group for the World Workers Party – communists).

We had intelligence that small groups would be marching from the Justice Department around the White House and that some of the protesters planned to demand the inspection of the White House for weapons of mass destruction. There were also reports that 50 or so protesters had volunteered to participate in civil disobedience and break the law in order to get arrested.

We planned a "stealth" freep, keeping details under wraps to prevent the anti-war groups from getting wind of our plans and disrupting us. It isn't easy to keep such plans secret.

At 10:00 a.m. most of us were on the way to the White House, bundled up in double and triple everything in order to keep warm. It was marginally warmer than on Saturday, but it was windier as well. In fact, the wind unfurled our flags and showed the stars and stripes off beautifully, but it also made holding foam board signs difficult.

We found parking by the Veterans Administration and walked a block to Lafayette Park. There were maintenance workers putting fencing into place and closing off the edge of the park bordering H Street as we walked into the park on our way to the front of the White House. Lafayette Park was practically deserted except for various police departments already in place for the scheduled anti-war protest march.

The permanent anti-nuke protesters were in their usual spots, along with the Code Pink ladies that have recently taken up a permanent protesting presence at the White House as well.

Stretched out along 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue were Park Police and DC Police vehicles of every description: Large truck vans for detainees (arrested individuals), horse trailers filled with the horses used by the Park Police for crowd control, vans, cars, unmarked cars, motorcycles and trucks. Both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue at 15th and 17th were blocked.

Doctor Raoul was first on the scene, followed closely by BufordP, LisaFab and her friend, Ed, Xthe17th, kristinn, tgslTakoma, Angelwood, Jimmy Valentine’s brother and Taxman. There were enough of us to hold up the signs that tgslTakoma hand painted in PINK, which spelled out our purpose to protect the White House from the protesters – HUMAN SHIELDS. We were joined a little later by a man carrying a flag from the 82nd Airborne (please contact us so we can get the pictures to you), two young and enthusiastic College Republicans from American University and a Gulf War vet who wanted to stand with us.

We started out standing on the sidewalk in front of the White House, but the concrete barriers were in the way. So, we moved into the street. Somehow, police cars blocking the view were moved away and we soon had a wide area in which to stand with our signs spread out.

We immediately generated some discussion from people who had obviously been part of the anti-war rally and a couple of photographers stopped to take photos. A man stopped to ask if the woman accompanying him could have her picture taken in front of us. She declined to hold a sign, but said she wanted to stand up for what she believed in.

We chanted some of the catch phrases that we used on Saturday:

(We had some help from a coach on the sidelines for that one – he gave us some good advice. He also stunned the Code Pink ladies by telling them what good is having the biggest nuclear arsenal in the world if you don’t use it!)

A few high school football chants were even aimed at the Code Pink group, which was yelling several chants of their own. It was all in good fun.

Stretched out the way we were displaying our HUMAN SHIELDS signs and flags, there were many discussions going on at the same time. A couple of guys were at the left side of the line talking earnestly to our troops. As they left, one of the men turned back and asked, “Did I convert anyone?” There was plenty of laughter from our ranks.

Three girls with their faces masked stood behind us for awhile talking to Doctor Raoul. He has a funny story to tell about this encounter.

A college student from the University of Florida stopped by with a tape recorder asking if she could interview us to get a balanced view for a research paper she was doing on the anti-war protests and the counter-protests. She was here mainly to join in the anti-war rally, but wanted to include our viewpoint in her paper. Kristinn gave her an interview.

There were some people who stopped to talk. One of the guys spouted the half a million figure of how many people attended the anti-war protest on Saturday. He said, “What are there...a dozen of you? Oh, I take that back. On second count, there are 11. What do you hope to accomplish?” He didn’t stay long to hear our answer. He wasn’t really listening.

It was cold and we took breaks now and then – jumped up and down, ran in place. A few of our members left the area and were allowed back inside because they were with the group with the flags.

There’s a funny picture that tgslTakoma took during one of our breaks. We rearranged our assigned letters to show our opinion of the IAC/ANSWER organizers – SHILS! It was an accident, really. Good thing we didn’t have a full deck of alphabet cards at our disposal. We could have been really creative! (We did have to remind JVb a couple of times that it was “I” before “E.”)

We also visited the Code Pink ladies to have some fun. We reshuffled some of our alphabet signs to spell “DUH” and stood in front of them. Kristinn spent some time talking with members of their group trying to convert them. What do you think his chances are?

We knew that the marchers were getting close when the mounted division of the Park Police saddled up their horses and started limbering them up in the park. All of the horses had warm-looking blankets on them, but some of the saddles were equipped with special blankets that covered the policeman’s legs for warmth. We also saw special leather covers on some of the motorcycles that protected the riders from the frigid temperatures.

As the marchers approached from opposite directions on H Street along the edge of Lafayette Park, we could see two different groups converging. We saw a great deal of activity with people running and the mounted police moved swiftly to the NE corner of the park. The motorcycle police quickly made their way to the same spot.

We could hear some shouts and radio reports and realized that people were jumping over the fencing separating the park from the street. We heard from nearby policemen that anyone jumping the fence would be arrested. Some of the paddy wagons were moved into place nearby for the individuals being arrested. We were too far away protecting the White House from terrorists to see much of what was happening and everything finally calmed down.

One of the groups had a portable stage positioned outside the Hay Adams Hotel at 16th and H Streets. We could hear many loud noises coming from the stage, occasionally see someone standing and waving their arms wildly about and hear some of the chanting. We valiantly tried to tell them to SWIM TO CUBA, but we were without our megaphones and they were on the far side of the park. Still, it felt good to tell them where to go.

We had been protecting the White House for more than three hours when the demonstrations began to break up. One of our members called and said he was nearby but the Park Police would not let him cross the line (or jump over the fence) to join us. We met up with him later.

We packed up our signs, made plans for a late lunch/early dinner and marched back through Lafayette Park with flags flying high. It was a good day. Mission accomplished.

I left many encounters, funny and heated, out of this report. I hope the other DC Chapter members will comment on their own experiences.

The photos are really fantastic and tgslTakoma will be posting them very soon. Stand by and FReep On!

DC Chapter Forms "Human Shield" to Protect White House Sunday
Associated Press photos | 1/18/03 | Associated Press
Posted on 01/19/2003 10:32 AM PST by FreeTheHostages

As those of you watching Foxnews national know, the "peace" protestors continue to protest here in Washington. They're on a march from the Justice Department to the White House, and one of the things they say they want to do is inspect President Bush's "presidential palace" for weapons.

Saddam uses humans as shields in times of war. But of course these "peace" protestors wouldn't harm innocent civilians. So some members of the DC Chapter of Free Republic are forming a "human shield."

God Bless you for the great work on the Freep!  Hopefully, surely, one of the D.C. area Freeps will coincide with one of my frequent visits to the area and I'll be able to join up with you.

Great! We were very hopeful that papers across the country might pick up some of our photos. Hopefully it gives some hope to the folks who share our opinion that they are not alone. What paper was it in? Do you think you could pick up some extra copies, for our "library?" I'll gladly reimburse the expense.

US Park Police Sgt. checking out Raoul and Kristinn's signs, as the rest of us boldly proclaim our role at the White House this day. :-)

Teasing the Code Pink(o) girls.

Playing Scrabble to keep warm, we came up with a slightly misspelled description of the IAC A.N.S.W.E.R. protesters.

A shot of the police line manning the metal barriers along H Street. Beyond the line, mostly out of sight, are the communist-led protesters... protesting!

More links to photos later. I have to do some home stuff...

The human part of human shields

We all know terrorists respect innocent civilians

Doctor Raoul Demming, of Takoma Park, MD

Human Shields

One view of the heavy police presence at the White House

Line of police motorcycles. The officers are already on foot, acting as human shields as well.

Police paddywagons...

Overheard in the crowd... PROTESTER:"I got arrested last time. It's your turn!" 2nd PROTESTER:"No way, man! I'm hookin' up with a girl later today."

All in a day's work.

More later tonight. I promise!

What a great weekend. Looking forward to doing it all again on 2/15/03 in NYC. The NY Chapter will post details when available.

I had the misfortune to pass in front of The University of Fl on saturday! What a bunch of freaks. The queers and lesbos and now were on the scene. Some kid had a sign that read Bush bombs for profit. I could not resist and eased my window down as I was waiting for the light. I asked if Bush bombs for profit what did clintoooon bomb for blow jobs. She went freaky on me. I almost fell out of a locked door laughing.

Thanks for the report Angelwood, and for all of you being out there yesterday and today.

Doc, I heard you and that other gentleman at the end of Sean's first hour. You both got your points across very well!

It's too bad he had to cut you off because of the hard break coming up, I know you had a good point to make.

Funny him saying he should have been notified, and you tried more than once but were put off by the screener. He usually does do a good job of announcing our events if he knows about them.

LOL at Hay Sean call Connie...

I want to know how you all got that positioning prior to the protesters? I mean, they were crossing over barriers and got arrested. Where you already there before the fences? I don't get it.

Anyway, you all did great, proud of you here.

One of the Code Pink ladies strutted purposely toward my place in line. She said she wanted to look at my buttons. Then she wanted me to give her one of my buttons. I like all my buttons, so I declined politely. The CP lady was miffed at my refusal. She would be happy to give me one of hers. I told her that I didn't want one of her buttons and she finally turned and muttered all the way back to her post.

As Kristinn, tgslTakoma and I were arriving from the VA building on Vermont Avenue, the fencing was being put into position. We walked through into the park before they had completed the fence line and put up the yellow tape.

We were allowed to stay partly because we numbered under 25. I heard that some of the protesting group members were trying to negotiate with the police so that some of their people could get inside the fences. The police said that no groups over 25 were allowed inside. Then, after the marching began, no one was really supposed to go in or out of the cordoned off area around the White House (though a few of our members were allowed to go to Starbucks for bathroom and warm-up breaks and then were allowed back inside because they were with the group with the flags). The chapter member not allowed in was on H Street on the protest side of the fencing and he definitely was not allowed inside.

Great Show. Amazing you could keep your cool. I was circulating among the ANSWER group, where the speaches were given, and came upon something disturbing. ANSWER had a booth entitled "Turn-in people here" The young lady asked me if I wanted to turn someone in and was ready to write the name down on her list. This sounds just like Germany under Hitler, where childern were encouraged to "turn-in" their parents.

Also one of the speakers representing S.Korea made the point that the youth of S. Korea sing songs that say USA "F..." you. I take great offense to this. We should demand that the Government of S. Korea issue an apology to the American people.
