Breitbart Fans Protest Outside White House Correspondents Dinner (Free Republic)
The Hollywood Reporter ^ | Saturday, April 28, 2012 | Paul Bond

Posted on 04/28/2012 10:41:17 PM PDT by kristinn

A dozen conservative activists interacted with dinner attendees including Woody Harrelson and Chris Matthews.

As the nation’s elite journalists arrived at the Washington Hilton to hobnob with President Obama at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, many were met by a small group of protesters shouting "don't believe the liberal press" and holding signs adorned with photos of deceased conservative activist Andrew Breitbart.

A few notable attendees politely mixed it up a bit with the protesters, who also shouted accusations of hypocrisy at the well-dressed journalists and Hollywood celebrities.

Protester Kevin Martin asked MSNBC host Chris Matthews why he wasn't driven to the event in a hybrid vehicle and whether he intended to donate uneaten food from the soiree to the "one percent," a reference to the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Matthews listened politely and even said the protesters "make a good point."

SNIP

Some who walked by the group gave the middle finger, others said things like, "Oh brother, Breitbart people." A smaller number of people, including Republican Representatives Allen West and Tim Scott, offered thumbs up and words of encouragement.

The group of demonstrators are members of Free Republic, a conservative organization. This is their 13th year protesting in front of the annual dinner, but this year the group dedicated their demonstration to Breitbart, who died in March.

Another photo of the freep was posted at Twitter by Slate's David Weigel here.

We'll have a full report with photos and video sometime Sunday.

In the meantime, here's a link to Stratman1969's video of Trueblackman talking to Chris Matthews here.

Brings back memories of Karl Rove doing a rap song with that bunch of clowns. One big happy family.

I was kind of hoping Free Republic would get back to the way it was in the late 1990s, with more active (large) demonstrations, Freeps, and the like. We had a Democrat president then, worse than the one we have NOW, and we had national turnouts all the time against him, with people like “General Chang” and others......here’s to more “in their faces” but in larger numbers. I also realize that costs some cash, so a good reason to contribute to the FR kitty.

I was SO proud to be (from afar) a part of the chanting..."Get out of Cheney's house!"...

Breitbart related? The only relation to Breitbart in that thread is some of the conspiracy theories in the comments, which are far-fetched at best.

Those words are shocking!

This POTUS is the worst ever and FReepers attacking other Freepers is more common than fighting Obama.

Thanks to kristinn for contining the good fight of the good old days on FR.
