Protesters Turn Up Volume on Sen. Clinton’s Book Tour (FR Mentioned)
The Hill ^ | Wednesday, July 30, 2003 | Bill Thomas

Posted on 07/29/2003 5:45:38 PM PDT by kristinn

The blaring music that’s now a standard feature at book signings by Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) is not part of a new summer marketing campaign.

It’s an “audio protest” by Free Republic, a conservative group, whose members have been showing up with their boom boxes wherever Clinton appears.

“We’re not hassling her,” said Kris Tinn, co-leader of the group’s Washington chapter. “It’s just our way of correcting her version of history.”

Free Republic has put together what it calls the “2003 Hilla-Palooza” tape for local chapters to play outside bookstores, shopping malls or anywhere else Clinton is signing copies of Living History, her bestselling White House memoir.

The latest play dates were last weekend at Clinton appearances in Little Rock and Blytheville, Ark., where people waiting in line got an earful of rock and country classics, including “Evil Woman” by the Electric Light Orchestra, Tammy Wynette’s “Stand by Your Man” and “The Bitch is Back” by Elton John.

Despite the demand, the 12-song tapes are not for sale. “That would be illegal,” said Tinn.

Actually, the tape was played in Denver on Saturday:

I brought my boombox and we played a very special tape sent to us by Doctor Raoul. It is titled "HILLA-PALOZZA 2003, The Book Tour Soundtrack". What a hoot! Everything from "Your Cheatin Heart",and "Stand By Your Man",to "The Bitch Is Back". We waited for Hillary to leave, and her Surburban had to stop at the light right across from us before turning right to leave. I looked over and there was weldgophardlone wearing the Devil mask and holding the sign "Bill Married My Sister"!! The boombox was blaring the song "Evil Woman"!

I Love Freeping!

Wish us luck Kristinn - the San Diego Chapter will be having it first official FReep on Monday, August 4, in La Jolla, where Hitlery will be signing her books.

I talked to the broadly smiling police department Sargeant today. We don't need a permit for a group less than 200. We just cannot block entry or exit to the store. I still have to find out about putting stakes on our signs. SDPD said I needed to contact the Secret Service about the signs.

I'm excited! La Jolla is a very elite area north of San Diego, and I do not expect we will get a very friendly reception. Whatever .. They're going to know we were there.

Best o' luck to you!

We've never had to consult with the USSS about our signs as local rules prevail. We mainly use lightweight wooden dowels, yardsticks or the like--nothing that could be used to seriously hurt someone, which is what most LEOs are concerned about.

I have to meet this Kris Tinn guy. Sounds like a mover and a shaker.

Thanks for that advice Kristin. I'll use that info when I call the SS. Since our group is going to be fairly small, I don't expect we'll have any problems. Besides, YOUR reputation has preceeded us and I expect they will know who we are and how we operate.

Thanks again for the help!

The problem with sticks is that no matter what you tell people, a few end up coming with unnapproved varieties and when confronted with verbally abusive dems, the thought of whacking them on the head can flash through anyones mind (lawsuit time). We've gotten around that by asking people to not bring any sticks and to hold their signs. If sticks show up, they can go back in the car.

Better safe than sorry.

It used to be you were happy if a reporter spelled your name right. Now I suppose it's enough to hope they get half your name right.

Most reporters don't take shorthand. Many errors come from not being able to read their own handwritten notes. But the important thing is their name is always spelled correctly on the byline.

A paint stirrer, attached so that only the curved handle is exposed, is good.

Also, a cardboard tube, flattened is good. That passed muster in NYC where the police were very strict when the Chinese premiere was there. It was long enough to hold high.

Next time I Freep, I'm going to try two tubes stapled in one length. Long enough to let rest on the ground, yet be high enough to see.

Laws vary by jurisdiction. In D.C., wooden sticks are allowed up to three feet long and two inches wide. No metal or sharp stakes allowed. In New York City the only thing allowed to support your sign is cardboard tubing.

We've never had a problem using the wooden sticks allowed under D.C. law and we've never been sued. Use your best judgment in accordance with your local laws.

I buy 8-foot lengths of lattice strips at Home Depot (for ~$1.25) and have them cut it to 4-foot lengths. The lattice strips are approx. 1-1/2" wide and 1/4" thick. They are thick enough to support your posterboard but thin enough to be non-threatening, IMO; and the Secret Service, US Park Police, DC Police, US Capitol Police, Supreme Court Police, Arlington County Police, Fairfax County Police, and others have never made me or any of the DC Chapter members remove them.

Have a great FReep!

Oh yeah? Well, I've gotten some pretty fierce paper cuts from that danged posterboard. The pain! The suffering! Safety corners and padded edges on posterboard should be a federal law...

Some localities can be pretty crazy with their rules, I'm sure.
