SUPPORT OUR TROOPS! Freedom Rally Against Terror and Tyranny on Sat., Oct. 25, 2003 in Wash., D.C.
D.C. Chapter ^ | Tuesday, October 7, 2003 | Kristinn and Angelwood

Posted on 10/07/2003 8:35:23 PM PDT by kristinn

For too long, America's fighting men and women have been laboring on a two-front war not of their choosing: The front against terror and tyranny that they volunteered for, and the flank that we must defend for them against efforts by the media and leftists to undermine their morale and resolve.

All summer long, and now into fall, our brave men and women have been doing great work in Iraq, Afghanistan and other areas around the world eliminating terrorist threats to our security while bringing freedom to oppressed people.

Those efforts have been buried under an onslaught of biased reporting and political maneuvering by the enemies of freedom at home and abroad.

On Saturday, October 25 at 11 a.m., patriotic Americans will gather at the Capitol in Washington, D.C. to stand up for our troops and reiterate our support for them, their Commander-in-Chief, America and the war on terror.

All FReepers and lurkers in good standing, their friends and families, and all who support our troops and their mission are encouraged to attend. Nothing but a strong public showing will do. Those in uniform are making great sacrifices. The least we can do is give up one day to say "thank you!" to them.

What: The Freedom Rally Against Terror and Tyranny

When: Saturday, October 25, 2003, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Where: The West Front of the Capitol Building at 3rd Street, on the Mall.

Bring: American and Gadsden flags (large and small,) service and Blue Star flags, and signs bearing messages of support for our troops.

Confirmed Speakers:

The Honorable Robert K. Dornan
Niger Innis
Blanquita Cullum
Rebecca Davis.

More speakers to be announced soon.

This rally will be held rain or shine.

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

This will be the 6th rally in the last 18 months we have sponsored. We haven't done them all by ourselves and we are most appreciative of the help we have received. We humbly ask once again for any help that can be provided to send a message of support for our troops. Please click here to help.

Special thanks to Registered for the logos.

Please support this Rally, people; either with your funds or more importantly with your presence, if at all possible!

It is critical that we take the offensive here. If we don't, the left and the media (but I repeat myself) are going to take back the gains we have made since 9-11 with the American people.

Our troops in the field need us now more than ever. I hope everyone here realizes that.

Freedom-loving people around the globe need us, too. If we drop the ball now, they will suffer more than words can tell.

And, our President needs the back-up.

He has never wavered in this war, and he deserves our support.

For freedom,
EV

Post pictures!! I'm in Baghdad right now and can't quite make it in time.

I ran into a DC Park Police officer over here who is an Air Force reservist. She knew exactly who FR was and had only good things to say!

Baghdad?!

Stay safe, nerd.

Hmmm.... I guess we could say that the DC Chapter is known worldwide...
;-)

I'm sorry - I've been watching so much DemocRAT California landslide-loss spin tonight that I slipped into spin-mode, too.

Hey BufordP! Thanks for introducing us to nerd at BillF's co-conspirators pool party over the summer.

It is a fantastic graphic, isn't it?

Before it got shrunk in the wash, it was this big

My fault it got shrunk, BTW.

Thank you, Registered, for all the hard work designing this great logo, and all the other logos you've done for our rallies past too!

We get guys coming from the outlying areas of Baghdad for a day or two of down time here at the palace. They get to eat in a marble dining hall with huge chandeliers and pretty fair food and swim in Saddam's pool. Sometimes they just wander the halls looking around and enjoying the cool air.
Whenever I sit to eat with someone who has obviously come in from the field I talk with them, find out their job and let them know that their hard work is appreciated and that more people than not are behind them.
I also make sure that the strays that wander the halls can call home when they ask to use the phone. It means a lot to someone coming in from the field to be able to spend ten minutes on the phone with their loved ones.

Thanks for getting the word out so quickly. We'll have a Friday night social, but that's pretty much the last thing we'll work on. We'll let folks know where and when the week of the rally.
