Skip to comments."Move America Forward"; then Back Ten Steps - What was accomplished?...
Posted on 08/29/2005 12:26:43 PM PDT by ParsifalCA
Now that the nation has experienced the "Battle of the Moms" in Crawford, Texas, what have the organizers of Move America Forward (California Congressional hopeful Howard Kaloogian) accomplished with this high priced media caravan?
What did they accomplish, other than boosting Cindy Sheehan's media attention when her saga was growing old and cold. The folks at Move'on and "Sheehan Tent and Awning" should send Move America Forward a donation check...nothing better than 'un-efforted' attention from the press. Just get the name spelled right.
Has MAF produced a desired result for the military, for the citizens of this country, or have the founders of MAF created another attention grabbing 'stunt' for their web site and future political campaigns?
What argument has MAF funded with this latest stunt?
What ideological core value has MAF offered America? That a majority of Americans are for the war against terrorism, and a little under half of the citizens are not? Didn't we know this already?
Over the weekend, I heard numerous anchors recite the same tag line after returning from a 'live report' from Crawford, Texas. The studio anchor, or 'anchorette', would simple say, "Emotions are running high on both sides". And they are right.
This latest stunt has done nothing but create emotions...[more]

Back in May of '03 members of and people allied with Free Republic held a concurrent "Support Our Troops" Rally in over 200 cities all across this nation. Literally hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of Americans took part in one of the largest pro-troop rallies ever held.
The MSM ignored it, because it didn't happen on their turf. If we want your son in Iraq to see for himself the support that he has, then we need to take the fight to the MSM. That's what the active duty soldier a few posts above was trying to tell you. That's what happened in Crawford this weekend, and it is exactly what needed to happen.
What was accomplished was that you posted a link to a great Web site: Move America Forward
Thanks Liberal Loser!
Wonder if he's related to that nutball who does the Nostradamus predictions.
Sure, right...just like the silent majority did during Vietnam. Yep, that worked. /sarcasm
That would be good advice, except the MAF rallies were about supporting our Troops, and much less about the ditch-witch.
They showed the troops that we support them, and they showed the world that not all Americans are as nutty as Cindy Sheehan.
Except the media (even Fox for crying out loud) refused to ignore her.
I presume the author of this crap prefers that anti-American Leftists go unchallenged in our society?
Funny...that's just what the Leftists want. Hmmmmmmm.
That's not just stupid. That's suicide.
Unprofessional? That term is irrelevant in this context.
they really don't get anything done.
The problem is, if there is no 'counter protest,' Americans and the world begin to think that the likes of Cindy is the majority opinion. We don't want that. (The media is working hard to make it appear that way already.) I think they keep that misconception from occurring.
Someone may want to point out to Eric that Cindy was the one flying on private jets.
The folks at Move'on and "Sheehan Tent and Awning" should send Move America Forward a donation check...nothing better than 'un-efforted' attention from the press. Just get the name spelled right.
Yep, and all that press attention that the Wellstone Memorial got sure worked out well for the Democrats. The Democrats have a large group of supporters who hurt their party in direct proportion to how much attention they receive.
Okay, from the article and the fact that he is from California, I might have prejudged him too quickly. But they article really sucked man.
So, essentially, we let the Leftists have their protest rallies, get LOADS of sympathetic media coverage, and we stay in our ivory towers.
Screw that crap.
The MSM will not be allowed to lose this war for us.
These commie immature freaks, who caused us to lose the Vietnam War, who were able to convince the nation that there was no hope in winning as they only spoke of body bags and NEVER of the facts that we won every major engagement in Vietnam, AGED but they never grew up. And we saw the aftermath of their callous actions, their street protesting, the immature press that supported them, like walter cronkite, as S Vietnam became communist, thousands slaughtered there, and Cambodia fell, MILLIONS slaughtered there.
But to the liberals....so what!!!!!! And they would DO THE SAME TO IRAQ!
The silent majority is not buying the press bullshit anymore! EVER!
And we now HIT THE STREETS in protest, louder, in larger numbers and with a conviction that makes their commie, simplistic, selfish abuse of their freedoms remarkably traitorous as a result.
And they are traitors because they are UNWILLING to acknowledge that freedom and security REQUIRE standing firm and sometimes engaging in battle.
They are people who EAT the fruit of freedom without every being willing to make the sacrifice to plant, prune and pick the fruit.
They are the children in the great American society that, spoiled and lazy, consider that their freedom is always going to be there.
It is EASY to scream NO WAR and it is HARD to scream WAR has defeated slavery, facism, socialism, brutal and horrific dictatorships. No one likes death.
But we will do the hard work. We always have. And now we are becoming street soldiers to ACTIVELY support our troops so that the liberal penchant for spitting upon our soldiers and the ultimate sacrifices they are willing to make, for each of us, NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN!
Move over al-sheehani in cindidtan, and michael moore, and george soros, and moveon.org (as in move on from monica, roflmao!) and people of the american way, and ben and jerry, and ted kennedy and al sharpton, john kerry and jane fonda, and the rest of you cowardly aged hippies,
THE SILENT MAJORITY IS ON THE MARCH! We will PREVAIL! We will NOT FAIL! And we will preserve our CULTURE and WAY OF LIFE and IMPROVE THE SAME FOR OTHERS AROUND THE WORLD and WILL EXPOSE YOUR DEAD IDEAS for as long as it takes to DEFEAT THE LIBERAL, DEMOCRAT ENEMY WITHIN.
And we don't NEED an American traitor like george soros or idiot celebrities like barbara striesand or jane fonda to support us with their money.....
And we DON't NEED to pay for BUSES to pick up the undereducated and forced union folks to MAKE CROWDS....
Our CROWDS come from grassroots America...motivated by an towards you hellish visions...
WE MARCH FROM OUR HEARTS, GATHER without PR FIRMS like FENTON COMMUNICATIONS, ARE NOT DEPENDENT upon LIBERAL ABC< NBC< AND CBS< or CNN and MSNBC...NOPE!
We are grown up, tired of your temper tantrums, NO LONGER COWARED BY YOUR PC CRAP and are now MOBILIZED for THIS GREAT BATTLE WITHIN
Experienced? is that what you call the lousy liberal media coverage ? Hell the Laimstream media isn't worth the powder to blow it back to Russia
The Experience was had by many troops granted but not from the Laimstream media but by Patriots like FReepers and MAF over the Internet and by countless other REAL Patriots of every stripe.
Make no mistake about it The liberal media in this country are traitors back stabbing story firsters who are looking to try and change freedom into their idea of a utopian society socialism/communism is not warranted or wanted in this country but they will keep pounding the drum of depression until every American heart either revolts or submits and submission is something that is so far out of reach for them they can't afford to tell the truth about ANYTHING !
"Battle of the Moms" ? that would have been nice to see even refreshing compared to the drivel ordinary Americans are subjected to by you laim non=thinking buffoons if you had even a clue of what you are doing to yourselves and you devout blind followers you would drop to your knees and pray to the good Lord above for forgiveness but then again God doesn't fit in your plans either !
