Freeper Doctor Raoul Has Died
Raouls Family | 3/25/2013 | Abner

Posted on 03/25/2013 10:08:35 AM PDT by abner

Doctor Raoul died Saturday of a rare form of cancer. He was 58.

Raoul's family contacted us this morning to see if they could find out more about his activities as an activist.

This is such a shock. His family is looking for photos and stories about him.

He is and always will be a Free Republic icon.

He kind of fell off the face of the earth about 2 or 3 years ago now. All attempts we made to reach him failed.

If you have photos please contact me. Please feel free to post stories and I will make sure the family sees this thread.

Great work!

Dr. Raoul at Walter Reed Hospital holding the sign saying “This corner under new management” really takes me back. That corner was previously used by Code Pinko anti-war hags who were harassing our wounded veterans, but they surrendered their position after being humiliated by D. Raoul and the DC Chapter.

Oh, man, that was awesome.

Beautiful tribute for the Good Doctor.
It brought back many memories of freeping with the DC Chapter!

Thanks, Julie....FR Class of 1998

Another sign Doc had at one of the Correspondents’ Dinners was “Dan Rather Put the ‘BS’ in CBS”

Didn’t he once freep Bill Clinton’s motorcade in a Satan costume?

It’s always sad to lose a fellow Freeper, but it’s also good to know a brother in Christ has arrived Home to be with our LORD.

Prayers for his family in their time of sorrow.

Terrible news. He was a Freeper's Freeper. The genuine article, a real one-of-a-kind. He lived his passion and people loved him for it. He will sorely be missed. Prayers up for the family.

RIP, Doctor Raoul

I still remember him in the Minnie Mouse costume in front of the Washington Hilton.

He had a sign that said “ABC is Mickey Mouse News”.

Disney had purchased ABC News at that time.

It was great.

Thank you for asking about me. I haven’t been active on the streets for awhile now, though I visit FR every day. I had both my knees replaced at the same time last year and it was difficult, but I am better for it and can walk and keep up with my grandchildren...almost!

I had cataract eye surgery two weeks ago on my left eye and I had the right eye fixed yesterday. I can see without glasses and everything is now bright, colorful and very clear. It’s an amazing transformation, but because of the surgeries, I also can’t dig through all my DC Chapter memorabilia for photos and memories of Dr. Raoul.

Over the years, Dr. Raoul brought me t-shirts, signs, books, props for the DC Chapter and generously contributed to the button fund with money and ideas. He was a dynamo and we all had fun and enjoyed protesting together.

Another one from the “class of ‘98”......

I will miss the Good Doctor and all his after-action reports. He was a pain in the neck of the liberals. May there be hundreds...thousands....that will raise up and replace him......our country sorely needs good men and women of conviction.

Long time no see! Hi to you both!

Really too bad that it has to be such a sad occasion to bring us all together. Doctor Raoul was unique, wasn’t he. We all knew what an exceptional FReeper he was, but looking at all the pictures and memorial tributes, he was one of a kind. His family must be amazed!

Take care, you gals!

Agreed! Don't think they knew he was an activist. He was most certainly an amazing person; an original. He did more to change hearts and minds than most know one single individual is capable of--with a bullhorn and the internet. And a few costumes!

God rest his soul.

Bravo. You did an excellent job! Thank you so much. It brought back many memories.

Dr. Raoul had such patriotic passion. It inspired all of us. This video shows how hard he worked to protest so much that was simply wrong.

This is a terrible loss for all Freepers, his family, and for the country.

Hello Angelwood! Good to see your post...sorry you have gone through health issues, but it sounds like you are doing better.

You, Kristinn, Dr. Raoul and many others did such a great job in DC for many years. You were on the front lines. Thank you for your loyal patriotism! You all were an inspiration to the rest of us Freepers all over the country.

This is a very sad loss for all of us. Dr. Raoul will be missed.

I did not read all the threads to see if this was posted, so forgive me if it’s a repeat, but there is a nice several minute long video memorial of Dr. Raoul here:

http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2013/03/a-tribute-to-a-conservative-activist-pioneer-doctor-raoul/

Perhaps somehow it could be part of his place on the memorial wall.
