Free Republic at Martha's Vineyard---Hillary Freep
August 17, 2003 | me

Posted on 08/17/2003 2:40:35 PM PDT by firebrand

When we first got there, I checked out the line. It wasn't that long. But people were holding strange cardboard squares that said funny things like "500," "600," etc. These squares bore no relation to the number of people in line. Someone explained that they represented the number of tickets. Oh. But it didn't seem that these ghost ticket holders ever showed up. ??? Never mind . . .

There were two women near the door to the bookstore holding antiwar signs. They said "Hillary: Why did you vote for an unjust war?" That was fine. They were on the bookstore side of the street and we were on the other side. But then the police decided all protesters had to be together across the street from the bookstore. So we had lefties right in the middle of us, confusing the message.

Then one really obnoxious character decided to be the first one the people in cars saw as they passed the bookstore. Clever of her. At a fast glance it looked like an 8-person pro-Hillary demonstration, instead of 5 freepers who had broken their cookies to get there and 3 left-wing nutcases.

I thought the two groups should have been kept in separate places, but the cops did not agree with me. Thus we were all smooshed together.

We got about half and half positive and negative feedback, I would say. The Vineyard is pretty liberal. One man said, "You must be from Nantucket." So if you're planning a vacation on a Cape Cod island, make it Nantucket, not the Vineyard. We got the usual single digits, thumbs-down, and thumps-up.

It was a polite, intelligent crowd, and Martha's Vineyard is a beautiful, quaint island.

We spotted the Creamsicle-colored pantsuit with capri-length pants as the Fashion Victim exited the store, and gave her some resounding boos that completely downed out any cheers from others.

A fine finale for the last book signing. What was that slogan again? Oh yeah, We Are Everywhere.

And here are the pix:

Vinyard Freep.

Don't laugh.

Did you get there via the ferry from Woods Hole? While I was there this summer, I was impressed by the local patriotism in the support of armed service members in Iraq. When they came back stateside, they were met by all these people who had supported them, given their yellow ribbons, given a party, a parade, and a tour of the Falmouth/Woods Hole area. It was great.

Where exactly was the bookstore? When I was growing up (in the 50's) my parents had a small summerhouse in the camprground at Oak Bluffs. The Vineyard was so great back then.

It's a shame to see it desecrated with liberals, especially the Klintoons.

Doctor Raoul and I took the Vineyard Fast Ferry from Quonset Point to Oak Bluffs. Race came via the Island Queen to Vineyard Haven. And Electric somehow arrived by motorcycle. Not to leave out BostonianRightist, I don't know how he got there, but he is a 16-year-old perfect gem, and was wearing a T-shirt that said something like "Smash the Reds."

Great FReep!! Just a note about the signs. I have used Kiwi Leather Dye black shoe polish to write signs. It comes in a plastic bottle with a foam dauber. It's cheap, it puts down a 1 inch wide stripe for thick letters, and you can see it from a good distance. You can also do a LOT of signs with one bottle.

Funny how it appears to be the same crowd at every FReep. LOL! Way to go FReepers. We should all be warmed up for a long year of FReeping, between RAT presidential candidates and Beelzebubba's book being released prior to the election.

Doctor, I do believe you are a FReepaholic!

Excellent freep! Thanks for the excellent report and photos.

Glad that the devil was able to make it to her last book signing.

Thank You all for being there. Way to go!

I lived on Nantucket Island many years ago, also a beautiful island.

Now my two cents:

The Vineyard was a horrible place to have a last book signing. I was on the road from 9:15 untill 3:50. it took me three trains, a bus and a ferry to get there. Hill probably had a chopper take her there a few days before.

On the ferry a group of people had kept looking over at me, and when we were getting off, one asked, seeing my signs, "are the Clintons here?" I responded: "well Hillary is, but Bill's probably off disgracing his marriage."

I was greeted at the ferry stop by ElectricStrawberry and RaceBannon. I've been to countless FReeps with ElectricStrawberry and had met Race once before at a Boston peace rally.

I brought two flags and six signs (I knew electricStrawberry wasn't bringing any because he took his motorcycle). Signs were:

Hillary is here hide the silverware
liar liar pantsuit on fire
do you know where Bill is?
the ice queen cometh, but where's the vice king?
honk if you hate Hillary
scrape the bottom, vote for rodham

I spent most of the time in Dr. Raoul's Rodham Hussein costume. it was a Hillary mask, a red beret, and a camo jacket with the rank insignia of three orange stars and two peace signs with a red backround. yes, it was hot as hell (not because i had a devil on both sides of me). A few people asked to have their picture taken with my, I gladly accepted.

Throughout the FReep, Race, while in the Satan mask, had been antagonizing some of the female passer-by's. he would say "looking good ladies. Are you enjoying that ice-cream? they don't sell ice-cream where i'm from." It was all in good fun, most of the women laughed and none seemed offended.

Doctor Raoul had the funniest sign: Elect Winnie the Pooh for Prez, no pants and caught with some honey

The anti-war activists that were there were gone in a few minutes, i dont even think they stayed untill Hillary got there. The pro-Hillary women was antagonizing us a bit, and got firebrand really mad. ElecricStrawberry pointed out that if you close you're eyes, her shrieking really sounds like Hillary (which it did). she was gone in about twenty minutes.

All in all it was a good FReep. the only bad part of the day was missing the Pat's game (i saw the highlights, though). The FReeping chapters were well respresented: Race came from Connectitcut; Dr. Raoul (and i beleive Firebrand) came from Pennsylvania; Myself and ElectricStrawberry reign from the MA chapter.

Lastly i would like to thank Hillary for disgracing her marriage, disgracing the state of New York, and disgracing the presidency. It gave us ammunition for our FReeping signs.

Yes my T-shirt read "smash the reds." it's just one of my slue of politically motivated t-shirts (everything from "peace through superior firepower," which i wore at the harvard square signing, to "France Sucks."

RaceBannon also had a great t-shirt: "Sore Loserman 2000"

Yippee for the forces of good!

On the signs with the numbers, wonder if these were ticket scalpers?

The idea is appalling, though.

Ain't seen the bent one around lately, maybe he found himself another bubble gummer. Hitlery seems to be a solo act lately, maybe she is the one that found a new main squeeze, I wonder who she is?

Someone postered a Pic of Web and Hitleries daughter on another thread, she seems to have inherited of of the worst features of both, she has been out of sight also, something bad is about to happen to the nation.

I can't believe i forgot the stereo!!

Dr. Raoul had a stereo with him to the FReep. it played "sympathy for the devil" "you're cheatin' heart" and "Stand by you're man."

It was at a reasonable volume, nothing over-powerring. It was great to hear Race and Dr, both with deep voices, singing this.

Colorado FReeper Bump!

Great Job gang. Her Majesty has now concluded "The Summer of The Devil" book tour. Her cult following now has their signed books and America knows it cannot trust Hillary. FReepers everywhere stole her thunder and made her followers look foolish. COOL!!

So I understand Hillary wasn't even in the state of New York during the power outage? There is a fact you can only get on FRee Republic.

I hope all went well for all of you East Coast FReeper Freinds during the power outage. I get lots of them here in my small town, it sucks.

Thanks for going the extra effort to make Hillary's day.
All the Best!

BRAVO BUMP for your great FREEP of the Queen of Darkness!

You guys each deserve a medal of honor....it takes much dedication to get to MV on an August Saturday. You were in the belly of liberal MA beast....lots of Hoi Polloi liberal elitists abound on that small island.

Firebrand....enjoyed watching the slide show of your colorful pics....that a great way to post photos.

Thank you all for annoying Hitlery & her cult & informing the public about her 'Lying History'!

Way to go, Tri-State and New England FReepers!!!

I knew there were discussions that some FReepers might possibly make it to the Vineyard for Her Heinous' last book signing, but didn't realize anyone was actually planning to go there. Not an easy task to get out to the Vineyard, especially during the summer.

Was this a spontaneous FReep, or did you all plan well in advance to go there on Saturday?

I'll bet 'ol Hitlery was certain that for once she wouldn't be FReeped at this book signing event off the mainland. FReepers are everywhere!

Mega-KUDOS to all of you for a really outstanding effort on this FReep! :-)

Hitlery seems to be a solo act lately,

The pair arrived by plane early yesterday afternoon, without their daughter, Chelsea. They are staying for a week at the Chilmark home of actors Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen.
