Maybe next time when you preview you can check to see if the tag is actually working. :)

You guys seem to be doing pretty good in the Big Apple. In my neck of the woods I've been going solo. Keep up the good work!!!

Thanks to craqed for posting the picture. We have retired to an Irish pub to celebrate our ability to harras the unwashed lefties.

Posting stuff with a pocket pc is something to get used to but connections are SLOOOOOW.

Nice size! Good job! It's tough to get people to want to protest on such a beautiful day (which it looks like it is in NYC today).

Thanks for posting the pix, and thanks to you all for being there. The anti-America crowd needs to be countered at every turn.

Solo Freeps make a difference to the public. I was soloing, before I was solo freeping (was recruited right off the streets of Boston). It's all about the public reaction.

Next time I'm out in Cali (Thanksgiving), I'll look up the local Freepers and we can go wreak havoc on the unwashed.

Great to see that you Yorkers are tireless. If the Yanks could stop buttin' heads with the Sox, maybe there'd be peace in the world--BAH, never happen!!

What does the sign say? It looks like "Traitors Welcome to New York" which doesn't make sense for a "Support Our Troops" rally.

Looks like a fine bunch of patriotic FReepers in NYC. Can't wait for more pictures and after-action reports. Thanks to all of you for standing up against the anti-American groups who came to protest.

Actually, we were rallying outside a "Antiwar" (read: Communist) conference. The folks who we were referring to as traitors are these folks:

The great unwashed

"Welcome Traitors" certainly draws a line in the sand or on the sidewalk. It's a great sign.

Thank you craqed, black agnes and cacique for putting together the pictures and posts. And Thank You to firebrand, who organized the Rally, and everyone who attended. Hobsonfile?(Stephanie) gets the distance award for getting up at 4 am and taking the train from Baltimore!! I hope we made your trip more worthwhile by our little post rally lunch and NYC tour.

The Honor Roll:

Hobsonphile, who rode the recently none-too-reliable Amtrak rails from Baltimore; Arcturus, NYC GOP Chick and her father (see GOP Chick's picture page above); Oschisms; Cacique, who did a running thread from a cell phone with craqed, who is a new freeper posting from Mississippi; John P. Cutter; Black Agnes; southern rock, who had to come all the way across the street; Don Rosenberg, president of the National Traditionalist Caucus and his friends Kevin and Chris; Chukcha and his wife Isabella and their son Kevin; Dutchy, who made a bunch of signs and informed the AP of the rally; Alice L., Judy D., and Paula R.; Coleus and friend Sally from New Jersey.

Many thanks to all of you for making this a successful rally. You are the greatest for showing up and standing in the sun (which turned out not to be too bad after all), bringing water, fetching iced tea, and just being your wonderful freeper selves. Bless you for standing up for freedom.

Hey all-

I've finally woken up after the events of yesterday. :) I made it back to my apartment in Baltimore at 12:30 last night and crashed as soon as my head hit the pillow. Thank you to all of the NY Freepers who took me to Ground Zero, the Seaport, the Macy's on 34th Street, etc. and bought me drinks for winning the distance award. Please freepmail me with your screen names, because I don't want to forget anybody.

Yesterday's freep was pretty tame compared to my first freep in DC. Most of the leftists stayed inside. My personal favorite, though, was the woman who walked by yelling at us to "protect the Constitution," thereby revealing her complete ignorance of the right wing and her own hypocrisy. Number one, we on the right ARE concerned about potential constitutional concerns during this war. Our support for the war is not automatic support for all the actions of the Justice Department. Number two, we know d*mn well that the people who associate themselves with IAC don't give a flying fart about the Constitution. They hate the United States Constitution and would tear it down in violent revolution if they had the chance. Protect the Constitution my a$$- don't tell me you are a defender of the Constitution when people of your ilk do everything they can to silence those who disagree with you.

As I told everyone at the freep, I've spent the past few weeks arguing with a raving leftist loon, so you'll have to forgive my aggressiveness. I'm usually much milder than that, as my brother will attest. :)

Anyway, I'm glad I got up at 4am to join you all in the Big Apple. Good freep and God bless America!

southern rock, who had to come all the way across the street

LOL! Hey, it ain't exactly easy freepin' in your own backyard. When you live in this neighborhood, it's like sticking a scarlet letter on your head.

It's O.K. though, I can take it. It was a fun time freepin' the anti-American commie crowd with you all.

Actually, just this afternoon I saw one of the same guys who was handing out commie propaganda at F.I.T. yesterday, standing at the corner of 23rd and 8th holding up a sign that read, "War is Terrorism too!" Nothing better to do on a Sunday afternoon, I suppose.

"War is terrorism too."

Ha! War is confronting an enemy head-on. War has honor. Terrorism is striking an enemy when her back is turned- there is no honor in that.

Who's the fellow in the three piece suit (the press, I hope) and the one standing on the rooftop with a camera? Did you encounter any problems with the unwashed? Absolutely nothing reported on Foxnews nor CNN so I imagine all was calm.

These are some of the pro-islamofascist thugs who actually came outside:


Notice the jihad scarves wrapped around their heads and the kid (or midget) wearing a palestinian flag as a cape.


Yet another pro-plo thug with his back to us.

And now for some good guys -- the patriots:

As a survivor of the WTC attacks and a resident of that neighborhood, I take great personal offense as these commie clymers coming to my city, which is still healing, to hector about "peace" and all that bull-clinton.

And since you asked for more pictures, here ya go:

Great pictures! Had a wonderful time.

Only downside to the day was the Long Island Expressway. Never drove into the city on weekends, so I thought it would be a breeze. Coming in, two lanes shut down for construction, and going home, everyone headed to Jones beach.

Glad everyone is well.

Thank you also to lurkers and friends of FReepers and lurkers!

The other side of the poster had a sign “PALESTINE IS A LIE”.

Since a big part of this "peace" conference was dedicated to "Palestine", we found it appropriate to put it there. It generated a lot of comments and interest.
