The Whore with the White Coat, from dKos

Confllict at the curb, in front of a Planned Parenthood clinic. Very nice piece of writing:

“Here comes another whore with a white coat,” I heard as I was stepping out of my car. It sounded like a whisper at first; I thought I might be imagining it, until he said it again. I looked over at the street corner in front of the clinic and saw the Saturday morning abortion protesters gathering. It was only 7:30 am and they were already shouting at passing cars. Billboard sized signs stapled to wooden poles--pictures of bloodied and mangled fetuses, bobbed up and down, and I heard someone shout, “Jesus loves you!”

I looked back at the stray man who had whispered to me. He was crouched near the parking lot waiting for others to arrive for morning clinic. His eyes looked like he was following a ping-pong game, darting back and forth between the other protesters and me. Something was strangely familiar about him, which distracted me enough to trip over the curb, spilling an armload of charts, my computer, and my triple latte on the pavement.

“Shit,” I mumbled, as I started to quickly gather my things.

“Let me help you with that, Sweetheart,” he hissed as he inched closer.

“No thanks, I’ve got it,” I replied.

“You goin’ inside to kill more babies?” he asked....

1. We shut them down, here.

A few years ago, a bunch of us got together and simply shut them down.

We came from all walks of life, but we showed up at the clinic and followed them to their cars at the end of a few days.

Some of us wrote down their plate numbers, some of us followed them home.

That was the end of it.

They were, at heart, chickenshits.

In a group, they were loud and obnoxious.

When cut from the herd, they were chickenshits.

5. Actually, we took it a bit further.

I live in a relatively small town.

Sometimes four or five of us would pull up on Harleys during the day, hang out for awhile..

We figured if they could hang at the clinic, we could hang at their houses.

The chickenshits never once confronted us.

7. Leaf Blowers

Leaf blowers have become a major bane of contention in our town.

They cannot be utilized before 8:30 on weekdays or 10AM on weekends/holidays.

We ID'ed the major assholes and laid it on.

Imagine 5 or 10 leaf blowers on the street, in front of your house.

Effing up your football game.

Fucking up your birthday party.


Or 10 of us outside of a church on Sunday.

With threats of doing same on Xmas.

They had no recourse.

We had just had it with their awful signs, with their poisonous bullshit.

That's when they called the police.

Nothing...

We were within the Law.

It is really that easy.

We called it "Ghandi on Gasoline".

I wish I knew how to post pics.

11. GF came up with the idea

I told her we would look like a bunch of idiots.

She started raving about those assholes waving their awful signs, etc.

Everyone went home and grabbed blowers and chainsaws.

The police were called, but nothing happened.

We only did it a few times, but the demonstrations no longer take place.

Funny thing is, all of us are at least 60 years old.

2. Knuckledraggers with delusions of wild sex, who wonder why women aren't interested in them.

This type is never attractive.
