Operation Infinite FReep - DC After Action Report

Posted on 01/18/2003 3:47:24 PM PST by LisaFab

LisaFab checking in from frigid but still FREE Washington, DC.

Sitting in our nice warm hotel room after a cold yet inspiring day of standing up for freedom and against the equally ignorant and arrogant America-haters we encountered all over DC today.

The weekend started out well with a planning dinner last night with about 40 intrepid FReepers and supporters at the Orleans House restaurant. I'm sure others will fill in the details as this is just a quick update so that we can go out for a few adult beverages before Amtraking back to CT tomorrow morning - we will however first join a few at the White House to act as 'human shields' for President Bush as the other side plans to dress up as 'weapons inpectors' (ha ha).

At 9:00 AM (temperature 9 degrees) had our rally of about 80 folks with great speakers including Curtis Sliwa who spoke with great fervor in support of our cause. (Details of rally to follow.)

The rally ended about 11:30. After lunch, we made our way by Metro to the Marine barracks to watch the 'march.' On the Metro we were confronted by some polite peaceniks, who, after seeing my stylish FR jacket asked "are you people with that conservative group that supports this war?" I answered: "We are with the conservative group that supports the US Military and its Commander In Chief." After a few more minutes of banter we reached our common destination.

As we made our way toward the Marine Barracks we actually were walking with the peaceniks as they were illegally 'marching' on the sidewalk (the worst part of the trip.). When we got to the FR command post the group was already giving it to the protesters. Waving flags, holding posters with pithy sayings, chanting with and without bullhorns and generally engaging the 'enemy'. It was exhilarating to say the least.

My sign: "Pacifists Are The Parasites of Freedom" (not the one pictured on another thread but GMTA) got a lot of attention photo-wise as did NaysToShays: "A.N.S.W.E.R.? You're Commies!" Every time an anti-Bush chant or poster went by I confronted the authors with the question: "How did you like Clinton's wars? Were they racist? Why are only Bush's wars unjust?" The silence was deafening - the few who did answer said they thought ALL wars were unjust. I replied: "That's funny, I didn't see you on CNN protesting then." A real show-stopper, I have to say.

Well, it's getting to be Miller-Time so OI will say Eagles Up to all who FReeped all over the USA today. Hope you feel as good as I do tonight.

"Osama bil Clinton's Vile Progeny!!"

"Why did Osama bin Laden send planes into the World Trade Center? What possible reason? The only thing you can think of is that he wanted to create a permanent divide between the Muslim world and the West. And that's the same thing these guys want to do."

Apparently, to the Lib'rals, to be anti-Sodom is to be anti-Muslim.

"Asked about bin Laden's penchant for mass murder, Hooper responded, "Given the right circumstance, (Falwell and Robertson) would do the same in the opposite direction."

LIARS Go To HELL!!

"Minutes before Khaksan offered greetings from the bin Laden connected group, Imam Mousa Masjid Al-Islam took to the podium and called for the overthrow of the U.S. government. "It's revolution time, brothers and sisters. We gotta get rid of this system," Al-Islam said. "The people of the world (are) waiting on us," he added, warning that the world's problems "will never be solved as long as we have these greedy murderers and imperialists like George Bush and George Bush, Jr. sitting in the White House!!"

Aren't we treading mighty close to SEDITION here?!!

"Then the Imam led the crowd in an Islamic chant specifically addressed to what he called "the 1.5 billion people in the world" who would understand its meaning. "When I say Takbia, you say Alhaam hu Akhbar," he exhorted the protesters, who repeated the phrase several times. It could not be immediately learned what the Imam's coded message to the world's Muslims meant."

Muslim FReeper Assistance Requested Please...
"Takbia" means....????
"Alhaam hu Akhbar" means....????

"Other luminaries addressing the anti-U.S. demonstration included Black Panther-turned New York City Councilman Charles Barron, Democratic Congressman John Conyers and presidential candidate Rev. Al Sharpton."

WOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! Sharpton '04....MUD

Yeah, You should seen them FLIP OUT when they saw me holding the "Fry Mumia" sign...The well dressed New Yorker told me that it sets them off!!!

I couldn't beleive the attention I got, one kid angrily showed me his love for the murderer by showing me his shirt..

One of us also had a sign which said "Smash Communism", the PLP and some other group which were passing out thier papers at the rally, claim to be communists in their platform. Yet, they claim that the communism "died" when the Soviet Union collapsed..

What a bunch of LIARS!!! Either that or most of the protesters were willfully ignorant!!

If I had the stomach for it, which I don't, I'd go over and see what the losers are saying on the Dark Side's site.....my blood pressure's fine, according to the doctor, and I'm going to keep it that way.

I truly detest this behavior, this way of thinking. It's dangerous, to say the least.

"...most of the protesters were willfully ignorant!!"

In a nutshell, that's it!! The DemonRAT base is extremely sick just now...and their true FReefall ain't even begun yet. These LOSERS will be made to look like fools as soon as America sends in the troops, takes control of Iraq with little bloodshed to our side, and DETHRONES SODOM in 48-72 hours!! That's IF we even haveta fight before Sodom accepts the Saudis invitation to live the rest of his life in EXILE!!

Conyers is a Socialist DOLT, and he showed up fer the rally...but no other DemonRAT politician wants to be within camera-range of this motley crew of the Losers in Life's Lottery!!

FReegards...MUD

LOL...I had a Fry Mumia sign too at the SF FReep. After an hour...It was ripped out of my hands by some long haired, maggot. I got a good kick into some of his soft parts and then he disappared into the crowd of unwashed hippies.

I will have another one at our next FReep.

To our DC friends...It was 60 degrees with some shirt sleeves in SF today. However, we didn't see no stinkin' naked ladies.

Here's the Programme of the Progressive Labor Party.

* PLP fights to smash capitalism wage slavery. While the bosses and their mouthpieces claim communism is dead, capitalism the the real failure for billions all over the world. The Soviet Union and China returned to capitalism because socialism maintained too many aspects of capitalism, like wages and divisions of labor.

* Capitalism inevitably leads to wars. PLPJ organises workers, students and soldiers to turn these wars into a revolution for communism. This fight for the dictatorship of the proletariat requires a mass Red Army led by the communist PLP.
* Communism means working collectively to build a society on need. We will abolish work for wages, money and profit. Everyone will share society's benefits and burdens.
*Communism means abolishing racism and the concept of race.
*Communism means abolishing the special oppresion of women workers.
*Communism means abolishing nations which leads to nationalism. One International working class, one world, one Party.
*Communism means the party leads every aspect of society. For this to work, millions of workers, eventually everyone must become communist organizers.

There were 4 of us who counter protested the PLP, while one of them was ranting on his bullhorn. We had a sign which read "SMASH COMMUNISM". I went into the rally and picked up LOADS of propaganda, so that I can read what they are REALLY SAYING. Needless to say...If I was a pickpocket, I would have had LOTS of FUN yesterday!!...

I took maybe about 4 rolls of pictures, some of the willfully ignorant protesters were carring their signs upside down (I made sure to get those). Eventually, the 4 of us marched along side of the demonstrators, heckling them along the way.

It was interesting that some idiot tried to tell us the "Communism is dead"..Like I posted before, they were willfully ignorant!!

I want to give my regrads to the woman from New York who let me borrow her FRY MUMIA sign, as she went in the diner to thaw out. I also liked the signs which were mirrors. One demonstrator got confused and asked a cop,..."What does his sign say?"

I got a laugh out of THAT ONE!!!

Nice job to all of you in DC that braved the chilly weather to make a show. I wish there had been more, but most of us have jobs and obligations. We aren't living off the public dole like a gang of leeches. They are and that is why a few thousand of them can afford to travel to Washington from all over the place.

Freep on!!
