Posted on 01/31/2007 2:42:16 PM PST by Just A Nobody
The purpose of this thread will be to pool our resources and ideas to counter the attempted take-over of our nations capital and foreign policy.
It is not the place to voice your disgust with those that feel it is necessary to present a street presence to counter the dregs of society seeking to undermine and destroy our country and our leadership. If that is your purpose, please move along.
On January 27, 2007, Thunder90 posted a thread to advise us of the next convergence on our nations capital by the anti-American hate-mongers. This gives us SEVEN WEEKS to organize and strategerize.
While reading Thuder90s thread and the AAR from the DC Chapters counter demonstration last Saturday, January 27th, you will find inquiries in regard to transportation, hotels, metro lines and the like. There were also a number of Freepmails discussing these issues.
For those interested in making our presence known in Washington, DC on March 17, 2007 please feel free to offer what you can.
· If you are driving and have room for others, let us know the general vicinity you will begin the trip. I have an offer now of someone willing to pay for half the gas to share a ride.
· We already have offers of rooms/beds for those that need a place to stay. We can always use more!
· Perhaps you can rally enough interest in your area that renting a van or chartering a bus would be worthwhile. Let us know and we will see if that can be arranged.
· Those that live in the greater DC area or will have a vehicle at your disposal may be able to help shuttle folks from hotels or metro stations.
· We may need wheel chairs and those to push them.
· Those that have blogs, talk shows, columns or access to others that do please share!
Any specifics should be discussed via FReepmail!

There are no formal plans at this time. Why plan a big rally/counterdemonstration if no one plans to attend?
Rest assured the DC Chapter faithful, with assistance from local citizens and troops, will be in DC on March 17th between 11:00 AM and however long it takes to ensure our presence is known.
The question is WILL YOU BE THERE?
A shout-out for standing up.
How about we surround the hippies surrounding the Pentagon and pray until the building levitates and falls, crushing them all?
Drat, why couldn't this be on a day when I don't have to be on call. Already committed for traditional St Patrick's Day church functions and as the pastor, I suppose I have to be there. The best I may be able to do is stand on the corner at the courthouse with my signs and flag. Of course, most of the people in our neck of the woods are pro-America and pro-troops. Probably because WV has more young people in the military per captia than any state.
I will be there. Here's a sign: Make Sense, Not Love!
MARCH 17 PING.
Much as I'd like to attend, I cannot.
I'll be in Louisville, KY that weekend.
I am here!!! sent red mail
E, this ping's for you!
So far all I've done here in SF is tear down all the posters and stickers around downtown. But these all said March 18 on them. Maybe the date is now changed and I'm actually doing them a favor. Nonetheless, I'll take down all the new stuff when it appears. I know it's not much but . . .
Yes. Looks like Fayetteville has been superceeded by this in Wash DC.
Sure wish I could be there.
If any of you are going to CPAC, please mention this to the convention. It could help us with recuiting people to come to the counterprotest, and the attendies could spread the word back home.
They are going to be in your neck of the woods as well. Just check the local "Peace and Justice" website for details.
Thanks for the thread, Justa.
I cannot go, ilovew, but hope that you can represent our fair state if another SC freeper is going and can give you a ride.
The next (but certainly not the last, unfortunately) FRisco moronic convergence will be held on Sunday, March 18, 2007. The commies wanted to do it on March 17 to coincide with the D.C. event but couldn't get a permit to rally that day in FRisco because the St. Patrick's Day Parade was already scheduled for then.
And yes, there WILL be FReepin'! You can put that in the bank!
