FReep of Ramsey Clark, DC Chapter After-Action Report
BillF | May 12, 2003 | BillF

Posted on 05/12/2003 2:59:28 PM PDT by BillF

Today at noon, FReepers of the DC Chapter converged to the front of the National Press Club in Washington, DC.

Traitor, friend of anti-American dictators everywhere, founder of Communist-front International Action Center (IAC), former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark spewed his usual slanders against our great and good country and its great and good military and President.

Clark had previously spoken these lies at numerous of the antiwar protests organized by IAC-offshoot Communist-front International Action Now to Stop War and End Racism (ANSWER).

Free Republic’s DC Chapter has repeatedly opposed ANSWER beginning shortly after September 11, 2001 when they opposed U.S. action against Afghanistan.

The honor roll of attendance at today’s gathering of eagles: Angelwood, Kristinn, and BillF. (Although a larger turnout is always nice, the event was at a bad time and we only became aware of this event two days ago. Under the circumstances, we were pleased to be able to hold any FReep.)

The traitor’s speech was scheduled for 12:30. I arrived shortly after 12 followed shortly by Angelwood. A few minutes later Kristinn arrived.

About 12:20 or so, we had not seen Clark and we believed that he likely had arrived before us, perhaps by an hour or more. Angelwood and I continued holding signs, while Kristinn went inside the building. Before leaving with copies of David Horowitz’ new pamphlet Who is the Peace Movement?, he left some copies of the pamphlet for us to hand out.

Just after Kristinn went into the building, a bus pulled up and quite a few people got out wearing tags saying “Close Up” (I think that it is related to a CSPAN operation). Many were interested in our signs and engaged us in discussion about Clark. They asked for copies of the Horowitz pamphlet and we handed out quite a few.

As other people passed by we shouted “Ramsey Clark traitor is inside now,” “Defender of Milosovich,” “Friend of Saddam,” “Friend of Castro,” “Supporter of every anti-American dictator on the planet,” and similar phrases.

Quite a few people were supportive. Some were indifferent, but I saw no negative reactions.

One guy, possibly a Cuban-American, discussed Castro’s tyranny and he expressed disgust at Clark’s support for Castro.

A guy in a group of men dressed in business suits passed by when we were quiet and said “you should be chanting.” We immediately chanted “IMPEACH RAMSEY CLARK, THE TRAITOR.” The guy indicated his approval.

My sign, based on Sauropod’s suggestion, said::

IMPEACH RAMSEY CLARK – ANTI-U.S. TRAITOR with Free Republic’s web address below.

I’ll let Angelwood describe her signs, some of which were also held by Kristinn.

Kristinn came out of the building about 10 minutes after going in with copies of Horowitz’ pamphlets. He had handed out quite a few while inside.

About 20 minutes after Kristinn returned, I left the scene as a CNS reporter was talking to Angelwood and Kristinn.

Before discussing Kristinn’s activities inside the building, I’ll mention some background. A week back, I had noted in an FR post that Kristinn had appeared on MSNBC’s Scarborough Country. Together with other DC FReepers, Kristinn FReeped the White House Press Corps and handed out Garofalo awards. He then stunned all with his great appearance on Fox and Friends.

In my post I asked Kristinn “When do you land on the carrier?”

In an audacious move, Kristinn had walked up to Ramsey Clark inside the building and handed him the Horowitz pamphlet. I’ll let Kristinn describe the details of handing the pamphlets to Clark and other Communist traitors.

It may not have been landing on a carrier, but I’m in shock and awe.

I messed up the links in the report. I'll try again.

National Press Club

International Action Center

International Action Now to Stop War and End Racism (ANSWER)

DC Chapter

Who is the Peace Movement? (this is the Front Page Magazine website with pamphlet listed on page, the link to pamphlet did not work)

If this doesn't work, I'll be tempted to violate FR's rules against violence by giving my computer a warm boot right out the windows.

Mega-congrats. No one deserves a thorough freeping more than Ramsey Clark, perhaps the most anti-American cabinet member in our history. Whenever you think things are bad, just remember that this guy was actually our Attorney General about 35 years ago. Thank you all for this patriotic service.

Fill me in... Ramsey Clarke Ordered the bombing of the innocent Serbs in Serbia am I correct? This is the same commentator on CNN's war analy's during Iraq Freedom?

This guy almost started WW3 during Yogo war. Ordered the bombing of the Russians at Pristina Airport. This guy is a short little punk with no gonads. He should get some before he steps up to the plate with the big boys.

And just to finish the story, he is the son of Tom Clark, a former Supreme Court justice who was one of the main forces behind the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II.

I went upstairs to the lunchroom at the National Press Club with a stack of the Who is the Peace Movement? pamphlets by David Horowitz's Center for the Study of Popular Culture. The pamphlets have a photo on the cover of the San Francisco "anti-war" protesters carrying the "We Support Our Troops When They Shoot Their Officers" banner.

Inside the lunchroom, I looked around for any reporters to give the pamphlet to. I saw one and gave it to him.

I didn't want to hang around trying to hand them out to people going in the room because I thought it would be rude and might be construed as harrassment. As I was turning to leave, a gaggle of people came walking down the hallway. Ramsey Clark was leading the way.

I politely stepped forward and asked Mr. Clark if he would take the pamphlet. He extended his hand and took it from me. He walked in the lunchroom followed by Mara Verheyden-Hilliard, A.N.S.W.E.R.'s Commie lawyer.

I offered Ms. Verheyden-Hilliard a pamphlet, saying that as a lawyer she could check it out for libel and slander. She ignored me.

Next was Brian Becker, a member of the secretariat of the Workers World Party and spokesman for A.N.S.W.E.R. I didn't speak to him and he didn't speak to me.

Peta Lindsay, their youthful idiot from Howard University was there, too. I should have given her a pamphlet, but didn't.

Mission accomplished, I went back down and joined BillF and Angelwood out on the sidewalk in front of the National Press Club building.

“Defender of Milosovich,”

What's wrong with that? Milosevich is being tried by the NWOrld Court. However, if Clark is just defending Milosevich's actions in general, that's another story, I presume?

Oh my, Verheyden-Hilliard and Becker. You were with the base core of the communist party in America. I guess C-Span was trying to make up for giving Drudge air time at the press club.

What we want to see is YOU being interviewed at the Press Club. You and Angelwood are our voices in DC for FR. Wondering out loud, do you think you can get on?

Anyway, BillF, Kristinn, Angelwood, thank you for being there.

Funny you should ask.

I mentioned to Angelwood and Kristinn today that I didn't fault Clark for defending Milosevich in court. However, Clark does indeed defend him in a political sense (i.e., apart from a legal action).

Clark is not like a lawyer who is just an attorney representing a mobster in a particular case (acceptable). Clark is more like a lawyer who becomes a consigliere (sp?), facilitating criminal activities by the mob that he works for (not acceptable). Clark is "mobbed up" to every anti-U.S. dictator on the planet.

The format of these luncheons lets people like Clark get away with rhetorical murder. The moderator chose to forward softball questions and not pose legitimate follow up questions. His evasive answer about his group's funding was left unchallenged when he should have been pressed on it.

Ramsey "I Crave The Taste Of Blood-Splattered Jack-Boots" Clark was well freeped. Here's the thread.

And then he went on to viciously demonize Ariel Sharon.

The pattern is obivious. Ramsey won't "demonize," or in any way criticize, brutal and muderous dictators, but elected leaders of liberal democracies that oppose terrorism and totalitarianism are branded as evil.

I offered Ms. Verheyden-Hilliard a pamphlet

The WashPost offered her something much better - a puff piece titled "Stirring a Cause" (click for full article) in Monday's paper. Portions of the article included:

The D.C. police want everyone out of 18th Street NW, and they mean now. They're pushing their batons hard against rib cages and backs. They're grabbing shoulders and shoving.

SNIP

The crowd surges away from the batons. But a thin, intense woman dressed in business black charges against the tide, directly at the blue police line. She whips out a camera and starts snapping, until an officer shoves her between two cars.[emphasis added]

SNIP

Law school won't prepare you for a workout like this, but it's all in a day's work for a movement lawyer like Mara Verheyden-Hilliard. [emphasis added]

SNIP REMAINDER OF ARTICLE

The article is probably worth reading. Not to see how much hero worship the Post can bestow on its far-left friends (ANSWER = a huge amount), but for some interesting tidbits about suits she has filed against DC area police.

Then again, is the Post article accurately describing those cases?
