UPDATE FROM TEXAS! FREEPERS AND FRIENDS STOMP RADICALS WIN THE DAY FOR CAPITALISM!
MsAntifeminazi! ^ | May 28, 2002 | ReaganGirl

Posted on 05/29/2002 9:08:11 AM PDT by ReaganGirl

MAF just called from the front lines of the Meyerson Center in Dallas where the counter protest is in full swing! I'll give you her run down of the Sham Mock Trial that our side totally disrupted last night. Then I'll tell you what's happening right now on the ground in Dallas!

Tuesday Mock Trial

The lefties of the Climate Justice Summit staged a mock trial holding ExxonMobile accountable for "crimes against humanity." As memory serves they stole that little title from Star Trek TNG where Q holds Piccard accountable for same. Nice to know they can come up with an original idea.

Our side gathered early in the day and had 48 people for protest training before loading into vans and heading for the Univ. Texas campus in Dallas. One of the organizers of the counter protest hosted the whole crowd for dinner at her home. What a peach!

Upon arrival at the UT Dallas campus our folks tried to enter the Student Union Center where the "trial" was to take place. The lefties panicked and called the cops who told our folks they would have to leave or be arrested. We had seven people dressed in Kangaroo costumes for the Kangaroo court and over 40 others there to cheer on Niger Innis and others who had asked to testify on behalf of Exxon Mobile. They were of course denied access and were even told by the lefties that "they had scripted the trial and were not letting anyone deviate from the script.

The lefties in attendance totaled a whopping 8 people. LOL so our side had them outnumbered almost 5 to one. At some point one of the lefties offered to let our people sit in the room but our folks declined. Being there would have only made the room look full for the press and we certainly were not going to assist them in their cause.

Our folks left and returned to the home of one of the organizers for cake and sign painting. Thus ended day one.

DAY TWO: EXXONMOBILE PROTEST AT THE MEYERSON CENTER

The day began at 7:P30 am with a head count. Our side had 98 pp and as of 10:30 had grown to well over 100. MAF things it's around 125 but will get a final head count and report back later. While most of our protestors are from Austin, Dallas and Houston there are many who made much longer journeys like Sauropod who came all the way from Baltimore! Sauropod, you rock!

As we were speaking she literally counted the heads of the protesters on the other side -- a whopping 43 people.

The police allowed our folks to set up right outside the Meyerson center and many of the ExxonMobile shareholders attending the meeting stopped to thank our folks for being there and supporting them. They even asked that our folks post our extra signs and American Flags on the fence around the building. It was awesome!

The Lefties:

The lefties arrived at the protest this morning in an old, gas guzzling ford van pulling a U-haul full of props. This is ironic since they are there to protest an oil and gas company that they charge is responsible for global warming and wrecking the environment. MAF was also told by one of them that they would be leaving in a hurry on their gas guzzling bus to get to DFW. They have to catch their jet planes back to Washington and New York. LOL

One of their props is an Oil Pump with card board flames all around it and the American Flag right in the middle of the flames. It's their way of burning the flag without actually setting the fire.

They also have a balloon of the globe with red paint spattered all over it. One can only presume what that is supposed to mean.

Their sign s read:

Solar Power = Solar People Our Planet their Profits

NOW FOR THE GOOD GUYS!

Freepers are joined in this effort by Citizens for a Sound Economy, the Council for Racial Equality and several other organizations.

We have several people in costumes such as Alice in Wonderland, The Exxon Tiger, a Shark and there is even a guy in a Grinch costume carrying a sign that says "The Grinch who Stole Capitalism."

Other signs include:

Oil - You Can't Leave Home Without It; I never got a job from a poor person; Down with Bugs - Up with People; Free Markets = Free People; Radicals Want your Job; Oil - Black Gold, Texas Tea and Stop Global Whining.

They're really having a blast! Great Job MAF for organizing the Freepers of Texas for this one!

PS: I had just finished the above when MAF called with another update. One of the lefties wanted to engage her in debate.

He was asking her things like "Don't you just want to close the EPA" and "Why do you Texans have to drive everywhere?"

He then stated matter of factly that they were there to protest for everyone to have equal wages. MAF stopped him dead in his tracks and said "No, you want everyone to have $15 an hour for not working." She then asked him how all his little protester friends got their all cotton shirts. (Not exactly a cash crop in Seattle) How would they transport goods around the country without companies like ExxonMobile and others?"

Good score MAF. Keep them on their toes.

I know that there were tons of freepers there that I didn't mentionin the post above. MAF is going to try to post a list of all of them later tonight or tomorrow when she posts her pictures.

Please know that I was not slighting you by not mentioning your names, I just don't have all your names.

God bless everyone who showed up this past two days in Dallas and THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for being there.

MAF said that they have 13 disposable cameras (now that's eco-friendly) as well as several video cameras. I can't wait for the pics myself.

What a peach is right! I've had the pleasure of visiting Texas several times, and I'll tell you that there's *nothing* like good ol' Texas hospitality. Fine, fine people down there in the lone-star state! No better people on the face of the planet, IMO.

You freepers ROCK! Great job!!!

An update from MAF - It's only 11:00 am and the lefties have PACKED UP AND GONE HOME

Only about five stragglers remain of their rag-tag group! Our folks are still there in full force.

Lefties give up so easily

Big Texas Bump!

Why do Texans have to drive? Do the eco wackos suggest they teleport instead? Earth to eco wackos, not everyone lives in a high rise dense ant-farm, or wants to!

LOL - I agree. MAF said that one of the eco- terrorists actually said that the government should build trains to get people around and do away with cars.

Where I come from we would call that "stinkin thinkin"

Just got another call from a woman named Wanda who's there protesting with our folks.

She snuck in to the mock trial to take notes last night. She said that they had this huge (and yet empty) auditorium at UT Dallas. They had a pannel of three Judges on the bench. One of them said that he was from Palestine.

There was no American flag anywhere in the room but that there was an enormous United Nations emblem on the wall over the judges.

It was announced that this was a "Mock Trial before the International Criminal Court."

This is great! I can't wait to get back to Texas. I hope you have everybody's contact info, the way to keep people active is to give them things to do (without overloading them). There should be plenty of things to Freep in Texas (UT in Austin, Dallas, and Arlington alone should supply plenty).

There is, however, something in him to which at least some of us are allowed full understanding. Being logic, to his mind, an expression of the abominable patriarchy whose end he craves, he couldn?t possibly obey it without becoming, ipso facto, illogical. It is a matter of logic that he should decide for being illogical.

This seems to be the only sane statement made in the entire piece...that Mr Fritjof Capra decided to be illogical.

What a laugh! And yet how scary...New age holistic approaches to education and science and thinking lead to holistic primitivism - a world in which Phd's are awarded to those who have studied the philosphy of tantric flying and the spirituality of dervishism, ad nauseum.
