Good pics. I noticed there were no burkas in attendance this afternoon. Can't imagine why.

I did get to shout "show your face" to a couple of bandana-wearing individuals. One such guy came up to razz us, and I resisted the very real urge to yank his down. At the protests downtown last fall during Bush's visit, I saw a number of younger folks wearing bandanas. I asked one why she was masked, to which she repled the CIA was there watching. Oh boy.

Glad to be there.

Just for reference here is a picture uploaded to the Houston Indymedia.org site:

...as well as some audio files recounting some of their reactions.

Interviewer:
There are some guys, that we walked by just now, who are actually pro-war, I guess. And they are advocating war, and they have signs that say something like, you know, "Remember September 11th," and things like that. And, uh, I hear you had some words with them.

Peace Activist:
I did, yes, uh, because of my son they started shouting to me I'm pro-rape and pro-murder. And, I thought it was very ironic because they were, they want war, they're for Bush. And I told them that, that war is rape and murder, and that they were being hypocrites. And, I just thought it was amazing -- that they could say that to anti-war people, that we're pro-rape and pro-murder.

Interviewer:
They also had signs that say, like, we're for real peace, and things like that. Did you have words with them about that as well, or?

Peace Activist:
No, I couldn't, I couldn't make out their signs for listening to their ridiculous words!

Interviewer:
I see. Did the police have to step in? Did they get violent?

Peace Activist:
No, no it... No it wasn't like that. But, uh, my blood pressure was going up I could tell.

The police did have to step in, but not because we got violent. Rather a bunch of these yahoos kept coming up to us and getting in our faces. Sheesh.

That looks like a piece of moldy brie that cheese eating surrender monkey has in his hand.

Well done Houston, you handled your problem well.

You guys absolutely ROCK!!!

Thank-you so much for what you have done to further the righteous and *moral* causes of conservatism.

It males me sick to watch the news coverage that the America-haters got.

Love and {{{{{{{smoochies}}}}}}}}} to you for all that you do!

Sounds like several of the new generation of FReepers got some good, first-hand lessons from conscientious and patriotic parents yesterday. Thanks for sharing your story.

Another quote from The Liberal Rag:

also a personal low for me as we were approaching the park -- there were a few anti-protest protesters, maybe about twenty or so. "i support bush" with a loud airhorn (or was it a foghorn or maybe a leghorn?) and "you don’t(sic) love peace, you just hate America(sic)"

What a dumbass!!!

I give up. Your leftists are more stupid than ours. The "bombing for peace..." has won the stupid sign of the week award hands down. All we can offer is "You can no more stop a war than you can stop an earthquake". I'm sure our useful idiots can come up with a dumber one if they try hard enough.

Good job, folks !

I meant to include you in my last post here Angel !

Let me share an excerpt from another article, btw...

Excellent ! Thanks for the post !

Tony Blair: The price of my conviction

But there are also consequences of 'stop the war'. There will be no march for the victims of Saddam, no protests about the thousands of children that die needlessly every year under his rule, no righteous anger over the torture chambers which if he is left in power, will remain in being.

I rejoice that we live in a country where peaceful protest is a natural part of our democratic process. But I ask the marchers to understand this.

I do not seek unpopularity as a badge of honour. But sometimes it is the price of leadership and the cost of conviction.

If there are 500,000 on the [Stop the War] march, that is still less than the number of people whose deaths Saddam has been responsible for. If there are one million, that is still less than the number of people who died in the wars he started.

So if the result of peace is Saddam staying in power, not disarmed, then I tell you there are consequences paid in blood for that decision too. But these victims will never be seen, never feature on our TV screens or inspire millions to take to the streets. But they will exist none the less.



President George W. Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair of England walk out to address the media in Cross Hall at the White House Nov. 7. "We've got no better friend in the world than Great Britain," said the President during his remarks. White House photo by Paul Morse.
