    We weren't at the massive Bellevue rally of 5000 strong, but some Washington FReepers, local patriotic citizens, and Support the Troops Groups came to the Camp Murray overpass and made history on Saturday! Participating from FR were CyberCowboy777 and family, FreeTheUSA, dhardt, MarMema and kids, and Libertina, Libertina's Dad and brother. Gathering on the overpass next to the base from 10:00 am on, we were asked by police to choose one side of the bridge, so that protestors (supposedly arriving at 12:00) could "have a space." Though Support The Troops people have previously held large rallies of several thousand with...

    Waving flags, unwavering support Elizabeth Regstad, a grandmother from Velva, thought for a moment Wednesday after being asked if she had complete faith in President Bush. "Basically, yes," she said. When Rep. Kim Koppelman, R-West Fargo, was asked if he was sure Bush is on the correct course, he said he didn't know if "we ever know for sure if armed conflict is the right thing." But both of them -- and others in the crowd of about 350 to 400 people at a Wednesday rally to show support for Bush and the troops -- indicated that the absolute need...

    Rally on capitol steps shows support for force against Iraq, President BushDENVER – The day after millions around the world took to the streets to protest a strike against Iraq, 300 people in Denver gathered on the steps of the state capitol to show their support for President Bush and war, if necessary. The Coloradans, waving American flags and holding signs saying “war is bad, evil is worse” say those who oppose war are not using common sense and in some cases are lacking in patriotism. “There's a whole bunch of individual human beings that are apt to have to...

    Saturday dawned cold and overcast with nasty winds and didn’t improve much from there. My “wingman” USAF91 and I arrived at the corner of Empire and West at 1150 local and drove through to get the lay of the land. Our local division of UII (Useful Idiots International), the People For Tyranny Peace were not immediately visible, so we turned around and parked within sight of the intersection. At exactly noon a group of protestors came up West from one of the High School parking lots and assembled at the four corners. We got there at the same time; USAF91...

    Streets of Columbia | 02/15/03 | bluesagewoman, dogrobber
    The peaceniks had scheduled February 15th as their big day to protest the war. They failed to place an order for good weather. Though the anti-America crowd was very large, five Mid-Missouri Patriots gathered with umbrellas and warm clothing to try to counter the damage done to our country by weasel-tongued faux-pacifists. One highlight of the morning was when an older woman came across the street to yell at DogRobber, calling him names like “moron” and “idiot” and praising the words and position of the Trifecta of Old Europe, France, Germany and Belgium. What was surreal was that she was...

    The Chicagoland Chapter had a successful Anti-antiwar protest in the Lincolnwood area of North Chicago. Attendees were Chicagolady, GRRRRR, Chi-Town Chief, BillyBoy, RedWing9, justshutupandtakeit and son. BillyBoy, Chicagolady and myself arrived at the corner of Western and Devon around 12:15. GRRRRR and Chi-Town Chief had already laid claim to the corner flying the American Flag and egging-on the 'Saddam Fan Club' of 'Useful Idiots.' justhshutupandtakeit and his son came soon after that, yelling comments from across the street like 'We love Saddam'. We were located about 4 blocks west of the protest gathering but right along their planned march. Their...

    It's a GREAT day for a FReep. We had a fantastic turnout at our rally to support our troops. At our largest point we had 100 people. Not bad for having 5 days to organize. Suprisingly most of the people that showed up were not FReepers but rather people that had seen our rally mentioned in the newspaper and/or heard it on TV. All free advertising that didn't cost us a dime. One attendee is in advertising for a local paper that the peace rally advertised in. The peace people took out 2 full page ads to promote their rally....

    My husband, myself and our two sons went to the "peace" rally held today in order to peacefully dissent and show support for our troops. We stood at least 10-15 feet away from the "peace" protesters in order to give space to each group. Within 10 minutes of our arrival, about 20 scrawny, pimply "peace" activists - collectively bearing more tattoos and piercings than any South Seas sailor - invaded our turf and deliberately stood in front of our signs. When we questioned the students about our right to free speech,they were unable to reply, except to spit out soundbites...

    I regret to inform you fellow Freepers about an incident that occurred today while I was peacefully (but stoutly) counter demonstrating the filthy peacenicks. I charged right in, by myself because I was the only counter protester, into a crowd of 300 or so and gave them a good solid piece of my Marine Gulf Vet mind with my 10 watt megaphone. The local news then asked to interview me and I agreed. I proudly held my sign that stated that "peaceniks are parasites of freedom", adorned with the Free Republic logo in front of me. During the the very...

One of the groups, sponsored by Albany Peace Seekers, marched around the block from First Avenue south on Ellsworth and back around on Lyon. About 100 people participated, carrying signs that read "All Children Are Precious," "Negotiate Peace" and "Dissent is the Highest Form of Patriotism." As they rounded the corner from Lyon back...

    Photos from the Tower District "Peace March." My guess is there was probably a couple thousand of "them" vs about ten of "us." We were pretty much alone on our little corner, at first, as a huge crowd began forming across the street. Hundreds of marxists, peaceniks, hippies and assorted weirdos kept streaming in until the parking lot was completely filled with a swarming mass of misguided humanity, and then they lined both sides of the street for about two blocks, including moving in on and surrounding us good guys. Learned first hand that the nice thing about being surrounded...
