Patriots Rally For America - Live Report
Dave Dilegge - Live From DC | 20 April 2002 | Mustang

Posted on 04/20/2002 7:56:53 AM PDT by Mustang

Received two cell calls from Dave. The stage is set. The flags are waving. The weather is great. They're ready to Roll! Around 0945 the crowd was 50+ including Kristinn, sauropod, Leadpenny, Angelwood, Exit 148, GoreWarVet, Dutchy, Congressman Billy Bob, Black Agnes, TaxMan, TGSL DeComa, WhoKnowsWhatEvil, FireBrand, Country Dummy, Stan Waite, Pro2aMom, 0351Dog. (please pardon any mispelled "names" or omissions. The cell connections were poor).

Around 1015 the crowd was continuing to grow, with some spill over from the Peacenik/anarchist nitwits. Dave reports that it was the port-o-potties that attracted them. But our fearless Freepers labelled the doors "Patriots" and Patriot Women". It seems to be turning them away.

More to follow. Mustang sends from Florida.

Police 'Intelligence' Says Protestors and Reporters May be Dangerous

A new internal memo from the Washington, D.C. Police Department warns police that protestors this weekend might use violence and pipe bombs, and specifically tells police to be alert for persons who are photographing, videotapping or taking notes, the D.C. Independent Media Center has learned.

The document, obtained this morning by the Independent Media Center, paints protestors and media producers alike as suspicious and potentially dangerous.

"It is possible that some of the radical groups that are involved may stage so-called 'probing' incidents between now and the actual event," the memo reads. "Such incidents are intended to test police, fire and EMS response. Such incidents may include vandalism, pipe bombings, or 'Molotov cocktails.'"

Specifically, police are told to be alert for "suspicious" people who are gathering information about police activities or calling police on the phone "posing" as reporters. The memo recommends that police should photograph people on the streets who are photographing, videotaping or taking notes.

The memo paints a negative image of protestors and independent reporters, and was issued a day before rank and file officers take to the streets to work during the demonstrations. [Full Story]

Man, I do wish I could be there. True Americans who love and are proud of their country need to stand up and be counted.

Are you watching the commies now? Heehee. They have some guy chanting "Bush-Cheney you will see, Palestine will soon be free" and the camera just zeroed in on a little boy in the crowd whose mommy dressed him in an anti-Israel t-shirt.

He was yawning uncontrollably!

Thanks, I emailed them. This rally on Cspan is pure garbage and a freak show. On the other hand, maybe those watching will wake up!

Rally Update:

Our Rally began on time. Angelwood's daughter sang the National Anthem. Dave stated she did an outstanding and professional performance. Tax Man read Red Skelton's rendition of the Pledge of Allegiance. It was a very moving moment. Pro2aMom, of the 2nd Amendment Sisters, is now speaking.

The Capitol Police are doing an excellent job. Several of the "Rally Against War & Racism" nitwits tried to disrupt our rally. The Capital Police is reported to have made several arrests and hauled them away.

I told Dave that C-SPAN is broadcasting the anarchist's rally. He said a reporter/media type told him if the Patriots Rally folks start any trouble with the opposition, then they might get some coverage. (Just Freeping amazing).

Yeah, I think is useful to have people see and listen to these folks. After all the pro-Palie, pro-terror propaganda of the past month, more Americans than ever support Israel and support America's war on terror.

Judging from the parade of America hating misfits they are showing on CSpan today, the only one they could dress up to speak for them to go against our beloved Kristinn was Becker.

Rally Update:

In the last half hour Connie "CAL" read a speach written by Rush Limbaugh. Dave Dilegge was an unscheduled speaker and spoke on how it is to be a Marine and proud American. Joseph Farah of WorldNetDaily just finished his speach.

The crowd continues to grow with tourists joining and buying Patriots Rally For America buttons. Dave estimates our forces to about 400 plus. The Radical nitwits are still trying to infiltrate, but the Capitol Police are moving them out.

Just turned on C-Span to listen to how we are all Palestinians. Looking at their costumes, it's understandable that C-span would rather cover this circus as opposed to our Patriots Rally for America.

Brian Becker said there would be tens of thousands protesting today. Unless the camera is unable to pan the enormous crowd, I estimate less than 10,000.

How close are you to D.C.? You should get involved with this chapter if you are close enough. Otherwise, you should get involved with the Maryland FReepers. They might all be part of the same group. Check out this thread too. It's a good one.

Rally Update:

Paul Rodrigez(sp?) gave a super stirring speach."USA, USA, USA" chants deafened the crowd. Kristinn also gave a speach. Former Congressman B-1 Bob Dornan is now finishing his rousing speach. (I could hear him "Lima Charlie" even over my poor cell connection).

The crowd continues to grow. Possible up to 500. The radical hecklers continue to mill around the fringes with signs of "brilliance" such as "HEMP" and rag-head wannabes waving Palestinian flags. Dave reports that the biggest attraction for the radicals is our port-o-potties. Dave also attempted to get near some of these nitwits, but reported "they really smelled" and had to back off.

The unwashed are supposed to start marching soon--heck, they're late--pass it on to Dave if he calls again.

I take it that when you say "hemp" you do not mean rope...:D

"The people of this country need to HEAR and SEE these people!"

Yes, but they won't. Everything on the tv news is unbalanced to give the America-haters center stage. Even Fox does this in the interest of "balance." Balance my a**!

They claim they are 15,000 strong and have a large group meeting them when they march. Please pass this along.

actually, from the looks of the pro-pali crowd on C-SPAN, you should probably be calling some of them "illegal aliens" or "sleeper agents."

StarFan, I just heard them claim they are 50,000. I believe they are lying.

Now they've got an imam talking about Washington's warning against "entangling alliances". Don't you love it when communists quote the founding fathers?

"I am an American. I'm here to support the war on terrorism as opposed to those people over there who hate America," said Dave Quaadman of New York, gesturing across the street.

WOO-HOO!!!

By the time this is over, the America Haters will total one million people and the Patriots will be three people and a dog. Mark my words, the press is disgusting.
