Republican Party of Minnesota ^ | October 8, 2004 (updated?)

OCTOBER 8 2004

Democrats have sunk to a new low. A group of Minnesota Kerry supporters plan on airing a TV ad showing Bin Laden and his henchmen with Bush/Cheney sign. The ad can be seen at:
http://news.minnesota.publicradio.org/features/2004/10/08_zdechlikm_527startups/

OCTOBER 6 2004

Another Bush/Cheney sign was attacked last night. The defacers spray-painted swastikas on these signs just off of 494 and Bass Lake Road on the Plymouth/Maple Grove border.

OCTOBER 6 2004

These signs were defaced less than 24 hours after placement. What you don't see is that the vandals also took two new American flags that were place behind the sign on each side.

When accusing a candidate of "ignorance", be sure to misspell "hypocrisy".

Anger Inc.: Angry Kerry Activists lay Siege to Bush Office in St. Paul, Intimidate Voters

OCTOBER 1 2004

These signs are located at Highway 55 and 70th Street in Inver Grove Heights.

SEPTEMBER 29 2004
In one of the most troubling acts by Bush haters to date, arsonists set fire to a Bush political lawn sign and deck of a Bush supporter in Richfield. Thankfully no one was hurt.

SEPTEMBER 26 2004

Anti-Bush vandals struck in Plymouth again last night. This sign was found at the corner of Highway 9 and NW Blvd.


SEPTEMBER 23 2004

A Republican Party of Minnesota staff member's car was vandalized on September 23 due to the fact that she has a Bush bumper sticker

PLYMOUTH, MINNESOTA -- WEEKEND OF SEPTEMBER 18-19 2004

Another Bush/Cheney sign defaced by the “party of tolerance” and supporters of the 1st Amendment. This one is located on Northwest Blvd and 59th Ave in Plymouth, MN.

DULUTH, MINNESOTA -- WEEKEND OF SEPTEMBER 11-12 2004

Sidewalk and signs defaced -- note swastikas spray painted by vandals

Signs defaced -- "Nazi" and "Liar" scrawled across signs on private property

GOP CONVENTION AUGUST 30 - SEPTEMBER 2

The King of Angry Democrats, Michael Moore, makes an appearance at the Republican National Convention

During the convention, liberal talk show host Al Franken had to be held back after getting in a argument with a radio show producer



This t-shirt, which was for sale at the Democrats’ protests, depicts the President peeing oil on the earth.

Democrat protesters blamed the President for “knocking down” the World Trade Center.
Star Tribune Condemns Kerry Supporters' Attacks on Republicans at the State Fair
"The Minnesota standard of spirited but nonviolent political disagreement was violated during John Kerry's visit to the State Fair Thursday, when three or four men, at least one wearing a "Laborers for Kerry" shirt, roughed up two College Republicans from the University of St. Thomas. The students were wearing costumes that resembled giant foam "flip-flop" sandals. One man was caught on camera elbowing a student in the head. An observer said he saw pushing, hip-checking and bumping that went on for 10 or 15 minutes.

"State Republican chairman Ron Eibensteiner asked state AFL-CIO president Ray Waldron for an apology. That should come from the perpetrators themselves -- and Waldron and other leading DFLers should publicly condemn this dangerous conduct. The scuffle at the fair could easily have become a melee causing serious injury, and turning peaceable people off to politics.

"Kerry supporters have plenty of ammunition for a war of words with Bush backers. Those at the fair, and outside the convention hall this week in New York, should recognize that if they resort to fists instead, they'll lose."


During President Bush’s visit to St. Paul on August 18, Minnesotans once again witnessed the hatred that has come to define the Democrat Party. At the protest, DFL activists angrily waved signs exclaiming, “Impeach the fascist war criminals” and “a vote for Bush is a vote for terrorism.”

Outside the President’s visit in Mankato earlier this month, Minnesotans were greeted by John Kerry supporters who extending their middle fingers and held up signs saying “F---k Bush, Vote for Kerry Honk” and “F--k Republicans.” (They actually spelled the F word out.)

With no positive agenda to offer voters, Democrats have resorted to an endless chorus of shrill attacks on the President.

As a service to Minnesota voters, the Republican Party of Minnesota will be posting pictures on its website from the Democrats angry protests, including pictures from the August 18 protest. The GOP will also be posting pictures of angry Democrats who will protest at the Republican National Convention later this month.


PRESIDENT BUSH VISIT TO ST PAUL 08/18/2004

A Vote for Bush = a Vote for Terrorism!


Fascism in St. Paul!


End War on Terrorism! (read; Surrender!)


Protesting "War is Hell" is Hell!


LAURA BUSH VISIT 06/18/2004

Protesting Laura Bush with, of course, a car festooned with "Bush/Cheney 2004" stickers.

VICE-PRESIDENT CHENEY VISIT

$$ for schools not for AWC war

PRESIDENT BUSH VISIT TO MANKATO 08/04/2004

Outside the President's visit in Mankato earlier this month, Minnesotans were greeted by John Kerry supporters who extending their middle fingers and held up signs saying "F---k Bush, Vote for Kerry Honk" and "F--k Republicans."

I wonder if any other state Republican Parties are documenting the ever-increasing incidents of violence and vandalism perpetrated by Kerry supporters?

If they don't, they should; and the national Republican Party should have a page devoted to links to all of them.

One last thought... I hope that all of who are able are taking election day off work to work with our local parties to help get our voters to the polls, and to see to it that our polling places are safe from the folks who will continue these acts of violence and voter intimidation against Bush/Cheney supporters.

Interesting post. AFA the first ad w/ Osama and the Bush/Cheney sign, folks on this forum have posted here Osama w/Kerry sign and made it look like a FNC screencap.

Both sides do stuff like that.

This stuff doesn't make me angry anymore. It just makes me laugh. Look at that pic of Bin Laden's group holding a Bush/Cheney sign--how assine is that? Yeah, re-elect the men who are hunting us down and killing us. That makes a lotta sense.

OCTOBER SURPRISE AD:

Political Operative Veterans Against George W. Bush (POVAGWB) Meeting: Mr. Kerry Reports (Serious Parody):

“When I attended a POVAGWB meeting recently, I heard testimony from Campaign Operative Veterans that they had:

• Cut off the locks and bashed in doors of regional Republic Campaign Headquarters
• Raped and defiled various Republican office machines
• Randomly shot weapons into Republican Campaign Headquarters
• Defiled US Mail delivered to the Republican Regional Campaign Headquarters
• Razed Republican campaign offices across the country in the manner reminiscent of Genghis Kahn
• Destroyed foodstuffs found in campaign office refrigerators
• Kicked their dogs
• Used large union thugs to destroy GWB campaign signs held by three-year-old girls
• Told story after story of falsely accusing Republicans the gruesome act of denying minorities the right to vote
• Committed other violent campaign atrocities under the tacit control and support of the DNC commanders”

Mr. Kerry denies being at a DNC meeting where these tactics were discussed and planned, but witness say he was there. Others are accusing him of meeting with Carl Rove in an attempt to end the campaign early and declare GWB the winner.

Bwahahaha!!! Check out what happened to the B/C sign out here!!

Sorry for the super-large pic, but I had to share!

Some twirp spent 45 minutes setting this up across from my road the other day, and when I drove by it less than 12 hours later, someone had displayed exactly what they think of Bush/Cheney!! Perhaps a bit of revenge for those of you who had your Kerry/Edwards signs stolen

Have you noticed that "fascist" is the Left's favorite word? Anybody that disagrees with them is immedately called a fascist. This is funny since I doubt that any of these unwashed, unemployable idiots knows what a fascist is.

It does seem bin Laden would be more likely to hold a Kerry for President sign. After all, Kerry has promised to obtain United Nations permission before he scolds them. The odds are Kerry would then invite the terrorists over for 'milk and cookies'.

If they do know what the word fascist means, they are engaging in projection. The democrats are a bunch of fascists, so therefore they have to claim everyone else is.

The last election I put a sign outside which said "STOP CRIME! AL GORE IS STEALING OUR VOTES! I put American flags around my Bush/Cheney sign. My Democrat neighbors knocked the American Flags down. Why? THEY HATE AMERICA.

#1 A Vote for Bush = a Vote for Terrorism!

#2 Democrats have sunk to a new low. A group of Minnesota Kerry supporters plan on airing a TV ad showing Bin Laden and his henchmen with Bush/Cheney sign


I've made and held signs that are equally provacative coming from the other view point. Specifically, my "liars club" sign and "Kerry is a poodle" sign could be considered over the line. I will continue to use these signs because the liars club sign is based on truth and the poodle sign is not too much different than what goes on Saturday Night Live.

I do think violence and destruction of property is out of line.

During a solo freep of Bill Clinton/Kathleen Townsend, someone erected a 8 by 15 Ehrlich sign which fell over when the wind blew and it flattened a bunch of Townsend yard signs in the process.

Not only did I put the Ehrlich sign back up, but also the Townsend signs too.

Advice in a conference call to county chairs last month was to call the media, the campaign and the police for each incident and to use it to gain earned media. Also to press charges, even though in most incidents it is a misdemeanor.

I think you can count on us publicizing these attacks.

I also think it will make the hatriots who are still decent folks at heart stay home. Nothing will make them vote for Bush, but it might bother them to vote for fascists.

I actually wish these accounts were more publicized as helps the Bush campaign.

Perhaps if a freeper, who has been following these stories closely and has the time to compile them all will make it easier for the "Fox news watch" to develop a nice news piece for air. Just place a grabbing title in the Subject line to get the notice of those manning the Fox news watch incoming emails.

I wonder if the Angry Left would recognize the phrase CHILLING EFFECT.
