D.C. Chapter to Hold 'Release the Tape' Freep at Kerry HQ, Sat., July 17 (Slim-Fast Giveaway!)
D.C. Chapter ^ | Thursday, July 15, 2004 | Kristinn

Posted on 07/15/2004 6:39:16 AM PDT by kristinn

The D.C. Chapter of Free Republic invites all FReepers and lurkers in good standing to join us this Saturday afternoon outside Kerry headquarters in D.C. as we call for the release of the videotape of the Kerry campaign's "Heart and Soul of America" Radio City Music Hall fundraiser.

Free cans of Slim-Fast will be given way to passersby (not Kerry workers) as our way of saying thanks to Slim-Fast for firing Whoopi Goldberg as their spokesman after her disgraceful performance at the fundraiser.

When: Saturday, July 17, 2004 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Where: The sidewalk in front of 901 15th Street, NW, Washington, D.C.

Bring: Signs bearing messages calling for the release of the videotape and comments on the tenor of the fundraiser.

We have obtained a permit for this demonstration from the D.C. police.

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.

Rather than responding with stubbornness and criticizing the boycotters (like a leftist organization would), Unilever responded the way they should have, by firing Fugly Whoopi.

I still don't see what the hell they were thinking having that troll as a spokesperson, anyway.

Believe the Ozster was part of the Kerry RCMH festivities as well. Does that mean it's a twofer?

Well, I can't be there. It's a long way from Houston to DC. I sure would love you to carry a sign for me that says:

HEY WHOOPIE
It's grassroots, stupid!
And we are EXTREMEly contagious.

I've heard that the comments were quite lewd and not respectful of the office of the presidency or of the person holding that office.

Secondhand information.

This has been a stunningly bad week for Kerry: Whoopigate just keeps bubbling up, Joe Wilson is bubbling under the protective lid of the MSM, the intel briefing fiasco and Hillary.

The boy's foolishly vacating on the limerick inspiring island of Nantucket this weekend--conveniently leaving a void in the media for us to fill.

Whoopi has a point, but not the one I think she intended to make. Kerry's let her take the hit on this. By not releasing the tape, the public has had to rely on media accounts of Whoopi's below the belt jabs at Bush. Kerry owes it to Whoopi to release the tape.

Kristinn just checked in. They are wrapping up and will post a report later.

Thirteen of us showed up. No major conflicts this time. Weather is great.

CNN, FOX, and local channel 8 all may carry stories of the FReep.

I don't know. I just hope the GOP gets a copy of the
tape to publish. It would destroy "Hanoi John."

While Whoopigate has legs, those things holding Whoopi up could support an offshore oil rig.
