Does FR or any other group have a response planned? If so count me in.
A response to what????
I love these threads. I’m waiting for the picture of the bunny with a pancake on his head.
Here kitty kitty.....
I just wanna give a shout out to all viking kitties!
Here’s the article:
Veterans to march against White House for Peace
November 21st, 2010
A group of anti-war veterans have signed on to march against the White House to demand peace on Thursday, December 16th, probably hoping to avoid counterprotesters who have jobs and cant show up on a Thursday. They compare themselves to the Bonus Marchers of the last century who marched after World War One for their benefits;
In the early thirties, WW1 vets descended on Washington, D.C., to demand their promised bonuses, it being the depths of the Depression. General Douglas MacArthur and his sidekick Dwight Eisenhower disregarded President Herbert Hoovers order and burned their encampment down and drove the vets out of town at bayonet point.
We are todays bonus marchers, and weve coming to claim our bonus-PEACE.
Well, here are some of the people whove signed on to the above statement and with whom weve discussed over the past few years.
Brian Becker, National Coordinator, ANSWER Coalition; as you can imagine, Brian isnt a veteran, just a Maoist bomb thrower. He runs ANSWER along with his brother also not a veteran.
Medea Benjamin, Co-Founder, CODEPINK for Peace; yeah, shes not a veteran either yet there she is listed with veterans.
Elaine Brower, Anti-war Military Mom and World Cant Wait; Shes not a veteran, but her son was deployed to the GWOT three times voluntarily. Shes fond of calling soldiers baby killers and murderers but exempts her son from such caricaturizations and throws her sons service in the face of detractors at every opportunity.
Scott Camil, Veterans For Peace; Camil was known as Scott the Assassin during the Vietnam War days because it was his idea to assassinate politicians who didnt oppose that war. He was also one of the Gainesville Eight who plotted to disrupt the 1972 Republican National Convention in Miami by attacking the police and firebombing stores. He was also shot while trying to sell drugs to the DEA.
Matthis Chiroux, Iraq War Resister Veteran; What can I say about Matthis you dont already know. Hes not a veteran of GWOT.
Bill Perry, Vietnam Veterans Against the War; Bill Perry was one of the original VVAW members who testified at the first Winter Soldier hearings. He admitted to me last year that his testimony at those hearings was bullshit to please the hippie chicks and John Kerry.
Mike Prysner, Co-Founder, March Forward; Mike ran for office in the Party for Socialism and Justice. He ran for the Board of IVAW even though hed left the organization to form March Forward because IVAW wasnt radical enough for him.
Ward Reilly, Veterans For Peace; Ward is a big fake. he walks around in boonie caps and tiger stripe uniforms to give the impression that hes a Vietnam veterans, but his entire tour in the military was spent in Germany during Vietnam. He wears a Ranger tab on his boonie cap to give the impression that hes a Ranger even though hes never been to the school.
He once questioned me on how I could justify my CIB since I earned in Desert Storm while he was wearing a Ranger tab. Hypocite.
Cindy Sheehan, Founder, Peace of the Action; Not a veteran, just an old hag in the final throes of her fame.
David Swanson, author; Swanson is professional crybaby. He founded AfterDowningStreet which has morphed into an Arrest Bush and Cheney organization. Mostly he whines that the left isnt Left enough. Hes not a veteran.
Debra Sweet, National Director, World Cant Wait; Sweet is everywhere a lame protest erupts. Lately, shes taken to following Matthis around NYC-area schools.
Col. Ann Wright, Veterans For Peace; she famously resigned from the Bush State Department to protest the invasion of Iraq. Shes a liar, when it suits the cause and she alternates between Code Pink and Vets For Peace. You can see her service record at the link.
Doug Zachary, Veterans For Peace; Zachary was booted from the USMC before he could be deployed to Vietnam, but, like Reilly, he plays the part of a Vietnam veteran. Imagine how screwed up you have to be to kicked out of the Marines in 1968. Zachary loots every anti-war he can get his paws near.
There are more signatories, most of whom I dont recognize by name. I only saw a few IVAW members on the list, but Im sure theyll be there.
Well......you know.....uh..uh........a response, man.
Pinging Kristinn, leader of DC FReepers.
I usually jump up and down on one leg while tilting my head and slapping the side of the skull to get the water to drain out of my ear.
Ponsdorf, I hope some locals will post any plans on FR so that you can make plans as needed. I am too far away to join you. If something evolves, do have fun!
Thanks, I don’t always observe proper protocols, But I understand this just popped up on the radar and figured speed mattered.
I talked to Kristann...
And...? What did he say?
what the hell dude.
ping Trooprally. I think I did so?
This really is new stuff.
We’ll see what shakes out. I’m also contacting other groups with likely interest in this.
Glad to help but you run the risk of having your posts inundated with zot requests and other FR foolishness if you don’t post according to the forum guidelines. The worst part is that this is important new that almost got overlooked because of how it was posted.
Just a word to the wise, FRiend! :0)
You’re going to need permits for a counter-demo. The DC Chapter can fill you in on the red tape.
Thanks for the heads up, ponsdorf.
We do but we can’t tell you.
It’s a SECRET.
Thanks for the heads up... I WILL do better, but the simple truth is that this sort of thing falls my way rarely.
Again thanks... If you think it’s worth it, please repost the details appropriately.
Yeah, the form for posting makes it pretty simple really. Just follow the directions. It's worth it.
Ponsdorf should have posted something besides a link that goes to a blog. I don’t visit blog pimps’ sites. Thanks for the info. about how easy it is to click links. I had no idea.
Let them march right up to the f**kin’ white house.
Let the _resident deal with this.
Let the current majority deal with it.
Let Nancy leprosy deal with it.
I hope they crash the barricades and kick some park police poontang.
You want to show some support ? Show up Friday night at Walter Reed.
(btw) Our bus trip to GOE-1 was 16 hours through a snow storm)
I tend to agree, but I don't know what those in DC want to do.
I thought the same thing. Even suspecting they’d be warmly greeted by our current President.
And I’ve been at Walter Reed many times. I helped organize GoE-1 and several subsequent events. I regret your snowstorm, but you were not the only folks that dealt with the weather. Shucks, I’ve even met JimR.
You seem to be confusing my lack of FR protocol with something else?
DC Chapter ping for anyone who can counter the anti-war veteran posers on 16 Dec @ the WH.

I hope you hear something soon. Thank you for caring enough to ask.
This Ain’t Hell, hosted by FReeper Jonn Lilyea, is one of the good guys. And he is in DC so his site covers a lot of DC Chapter FReeps.
Ping me to any follow up info regarding a FReep event.
Just got onto FR. Thanks for the heads up. Might be tough to personally be there but will give it the old college try.
I didn’t see any times, did any one see the time? And is this a march or just a protest in front of the WH?
My initial thoughts in reading comments is to have a Support the Troops counter rally. If The One listens to these a$$holes he might make the ROE even more restrictive, endangering our brave troops even more than he already has. Plus we should expose this group for trying to steal the integrity of our troops.
This sounds like a similar event that precipitated the Gathering of Eagles’ involvement. Anyone have a connection to them?
how stupid are you?
Thanks for the info. That’s good to know.
You seem prepared to answer your own question?
Yipper, FR has connections. Just need to decide if this is a non-event, or something that needs our attention. There doesn’t seem to be much interest on this thread. Can’t say that I disagree but need to find out what their message will be. If it in any way denigrates our military, we will be there.
And we know what happened to them, don't we?
Virginia Freeper Ping, and DC area Ping in hopes others can join you in support of our Military!
Sometimes (actually often) a story breaks on a little old blog; and it percolates up to 'real news' sites from there. And often the first word of leftists' planned activities shows up on a little old blog.
I dont visit blog pimps sites.
I think Trooprally cleared up your "blog pimp" misnomer, so I won't repeat.
Oh, hell; maybe I will...
And here's a little about Jonn Lilyea, who started the little old blog; and who Mr. T already said a few words about.
Thanks for the info. about how easy it is to click links. I had no idea.
No problem. Happy to help.
I guess it's good I did, especially since now you have a few more links to click on.
Can nobody click a link and read a little bit before flying off with totally uncalled for catcrap nasty comments?
There have been more than a few times that I have clicked on to links that are unknown and my computer was screwed up from going there.
There was nothing to explain what this was about.
If somebody posts a link to a site that doesn't seem obviously dangerous to your computer, you could also google that site name and get an idea if it's legit.
But calling somebody stupid, for no good reason is, well... it kinda makes one look stupid. And incredibly rude.
The internets are a dangerous place. Better pull over to the side of the road.
Good advice. That’s why I didn’t click the link. heh
