    On March 20, a coalition of communist groups, 9/11 “Truth” activists and anti-Israel extremists gathered in San Francisco to protest against — well, just about everything. The event was in theory an “anti-war” rally timed to coincide with the seventh anniversary of the start of the Iraq War, but since that war is basically over, the anti-war movement now has not only evaporated almost completely but has also lost its focus, as a plethora of tangential issues and petty gripes have taken center stage.

    Just watched the 6:00 'news' on channel 11. . . they say thousands marched in San Francisco against the "surge." One sign I read said: "Impeach. Prosecute. Execute." One protester interviewed praised the diverse crowd - she was especially happy with the DOG turnout. The reporter said usually they see a few war-supporting counter-protestors, but today there were none, although they looked and looked and looked. Send reinforcements!

    After attending the “You Don’t Speak For Me, Cindy” rally at the State Capitol on Wednesday, I KNEW I had to do whatever it took to be there for the “Peace and Justice” rally on Saturday. In between taxiing kids to various activities and attending a funeral for a friend, I managed to spend a few hours with some of the most angry, hateful people I have EVER been around in my entire life! It is an experience I will NEVER forget and I am so glad that I was able to go. I was very nervous about going alone,...

    Promoting worldwide defeat By William Hawkins Published September 22, 2005 Before Hurricane Katrina took center stage, President George W. Bush was making speeches in support of the war in Iraq. While commemorating the U.S. victory in World War II at San Diego Aug. 30, he warned of the al Qaeda strategy in Iraq, "They want us to retreat so they can topple governments in the Middle East and turn that region into a safe haven for terrorism." He posed the question "Do we return to the pre-September 11 [2001] mind-set of isolation and retreat, or do we continue to take...

    Solitary Freep of the Al Sheehani Freakshow, PA State Capitol, Harrisburg, PA. This stop was apparently a recent addition to their tour which originally listed only Pittsburgh & Philly. Their rally was to run from 5- 6 pm on Wed. Sept 14. Before the rally some members apparently met with legislators. I arrived on the scene at 5. Wasn't sure if there would be any other ground support, but I came prepared with extra signs just in case. My sign was about 24x36" and was constructed so that I could fold it up & tuck it in my backpack. Emblazoned...

    How many anti-war protestors ACTUALLY showed up at the Washington, D.C. rally yesterday? I watched some of it yesterday on C-SPAN and from the shots of the crowds it didn't look too thick. Unfortunately I saw no aerial shots of this event. The protestors are claiming over 200,000 and the newspapers are saying only "Tens" of thousands. The pictures I have seen of this event show low densities of people. When you look at the pics, the protestors have ample space between them which indicates a small crowd. I am guessing that there were only between 10,000 and 20,000 protestors...

    U.S. Rep. Jim McDermott broadened his attack on George W. Bush's war plans yesterday, saying the president is threatening military action in Iraq as part of a plot to crown himself emperor of America. Criticized for saying on a trip to Iraq early last week that Bush would mislead the American public, McDermott, a Seattle Democrat, was back in his district yesterday telling cheering supporters that Bush is planning a war to distract voters' attention from domestic problems. He said Bush is trying to "submarine" efforts to restart weapons inspections in Iraq to give him a pretext for starting...

    I went to the Jim McDermott Town Hall Meeting in Seattle today. A handful of FReepers were there with some excellent signs ("Go back to Bagdhad"). Unfortunately the vast majority of those attending (at least 250) in the packed room were gung-ho supporters of McDermott. Jihad Jim literally spent the entire 1 1/2 hours of his meeting bashing the USA. He said that the war on Iraq was merely a ploy by President Bush to distract the American people from the economy. He spoke of dying children in Iraq and polluted water and blamed the US. In fact he blamed...

When McDermRAT arrived we surrounded him and called out “Stay in Baghdad” and held up signs. The sign I was especially proud of read:”Saddam GOODBush BAD”This is Bagdad Jim’s mind on drugs. LOL The quotations marks drove the lefties up the wall because they said they weren’t his exact words. I suggested they get over it. Patriot62, his friend, father, and 3 of my GOP friends were present. We asked...

    SEATTLE - More than 5,000 people marched from Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood to Westlake Center downtown Sunday, protesting the Bush administration's policy toward Iraq. Congressman Jim McDermott addressed the crowd, telling protesters that Bush is out for war. In a short speech, the Seattle Democrat didn't talk about his recent trip to Baghdad, for which he was heavily criticized by some conservatives. Afterward, he said his critics have nicknamed him "Jihad Jim" because they have nothing intelligent to say. There were a handful of pro-Bush supporters at the rally. One person carried a sign reading: "Jihad Jim loves Saddam."
