Posted on 01/31/2007 2:42:16 PM PST by Just A Nobody
The purpose of this thread will be to pool our resources and ideas to counter the attempted take-over of our nations capital and foreign policy.
It is not the place to voice your disgust with those that feel it is necessary to present a street presence to counter the dregs of society seeking to undermine and destroy our country and our leadership. If that is your purpose, please move along.
On January 27, 2007, Thunder90 posted a thread to advise us of the next convergence on our nations capital by the anti-American hate-mongers. This gives us SEVEN WEEKS to organize and strategerize.
While reading Thuder90s thread and the AAR from the DC Chapters counter demonstration last Saturday, January 27th, you will find inquiries in regard to transportation, hotels, metro lines and the like. There were also a number of Freepmails discussing these issues.
For those interested in making our presence known in Washington, DC on March 17, 2007 please feel free to offer what you can.
· If you are driving and have room for others, let us know the general vicinity you will begin the trip. I have an offer now of someone willing to pay for half the gas to share a ride.
· We already have offers of rooms/beds for those that need a place to stay. We can always use more!
· Perhaps you can rally enough interest in your area that renting a van or chartering a bus would be worthwhile. Let us know and we will see if that can be arranged.
· Those that live in the greater DC area or will have a vehicle at your disposal may be able to help shuttle folks from hotels or metro stations.
· We may need wheel chairs and those to push them.
· Those that have blogs, talk shows, columns or access to others that do please share!
Any specifics should be discussed via FReepmail!

There are no formal plans at this time. Why plan a big rally/counterdemonstration if no one plans to attend?
Rest assured the DC Chapter faithful, with assistance from local citizens and troops, will be in DC on March 17th between 11:00 AM and however long it takes to ensure our presence is known.
The question is WILL YOU BE THERE?
The details of their blood dance to celebrate their victory in 1967 can be found at the link below.

Pinging for ideas!
Thank you for making this thread. I will be out there, pending no changes to my school schedule.
How about we reenact the 1968 Democratic Convention? We could play the role of the Chicago cops!
God help me...I LOATHE these people!
Post the related threads on your state board and see if you can scare up some others from around there.
We'll be there somewhere. If we get a good response we could be several places. In the meantime, please plan to stand with us and our country that day.
Bump--I have a feeling I'll be coming here often.
Also, ANSWER and UFPJ are holding rallies in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle. So, there is still counterprotesting for even west coast FReepers to do.
I'm marking this day on my calendar, thanks JAN.
Will there be sign-up sheets? Your last post about the soldier who was spat upon boiled my blood. (You might post a link to that thread here.) It's time to be counted. Pro-troops, pro-victory.
If anyone's coming from SC and can give me a ride then I'll be there. All the airlines realized that March is spring break month so a plane ticket is out of the question. I might be able to take a train if no one can give me a ride.

Great Sasha! Let us know how many will attend from your area. ;*)
Hope we see you here...at both.
Ahem, you may want to look toward the bottom of the body of the "article" just above the bold red letters. ;*)
Anyone from South Carolina up for a road trip?
