Right Wing A-Hole "Protest Warriors" Beat Up by Illiterate Bush Supporters
Edited on Sat Aug-27-05 05:49 PM by Stephanie


:rofl:


This is priceless. These idiots have been around for a while. They show up at protests posing as liberals with outrageous signs, which you can see at their site - here:

http://www.protestwarrior.com /

They're like the evil twin of Billionaires for Bush. But the Pro-War protestors in Crawford didn't get the joke and physically attacked them! Ha ha ha!

I saw it in Reuters & I suspected it was them - checked their site and lo and behold!

Across town in Crawford, other parents of soldiers who are serving or have died in Iraq countered Sheehan with their own raucous rally that started with a prayer.

Organizer Howard Kaloogian accused Sheehan of "giving hope and encouragement to our enemies."

The crowd, which organizers said topped 3,000 but appeared closer to 1,500, chanted "Cindy, Go Home" and compared her to Jane Fonda, whose visit to a North Vietnamese gun site in 1972 earned her the nickname "Hanoi Jane."

"Cindy=Hanoi Jane," read one of the signs at the rally.

In one heated moment, members of the pro-Bush crowd turned on what they mistakenly thought were a group of anti-war protesters, cursing them, threatening them and tearing down their signs. A police officer rushed the group to safety.

Just got back from Crawford. A Protest Warrior almost got his clocked cleaned by the Pro-Bush crowd. Had the LOOOONG "Bush is a Dictator" sign. A guy tackled him and his sign before reading it all the way through. I just had time to recognize it as a Protest Warrior sign and only got through "...Dictator" before he was down. Remember, these signs are made for sneaking up on liberals and can be misinterpreted by those unfamiliar with the Protest Warriors. Fortunately, some people familiar with Protest Warrior explained everything and the tackler and the tacklee were laughing about it minutes later. Of course the cameras were all over it when they thought a peace protester was getting his due but disappeared when the facts were known. It will probably still make the news as an attack on the Pro-Cindy crowd anyway.

At the pro-Bush rally several miles away, there were some heated moments when two members of Protest Warrior, a group that frequently holds counter protests to anti-war rallies, walked in with a sign that read "Say No to War Unless a Democrat is President."

Many Bush supporters only saw the top of the sign and believed the men were war protesters, so they began shouting and chasing the pair out. One man tore up their signs. When Will Marean of Minneapolis kept repeating that he was on the Bush side and tried to explain Protest Warrior's mission, one Bush supporter shook his hand and apologized.

*edit to add the last story from ABC - Oh lord those Freepers are STUPID! LOL!

*edit! On re-reading, it looks like it happened more than once! One sign about a Dictator, and another reading No War Unless a Democrat is President.

:rofl:

6. Physical assault is still physical assault. Hope the news does carry it.
And points out that the person was not a peace activist but a agent provacateur Bush supporter who was physcially attacked by a fellow Bush supporter. It is priceless.

8. They did report this, I think
A woman from the Iconoclast was telling about an altercation with arrests and ambulances. The situation wasn't clear to me from how it was related but I'll bet this is it.

She said the to-do involved people who were impersonation Cindy supporters.

24. Yes- She didn't seem to know anything about who it actually was
They just said something about a big scuffle with infiltrators. I didn't even realize that it had involved other bushbots, so maybe there *was* more than one incident :shrug:

30. NYT carried AP coverage:...some heated moments at pro-bush rally

There also were some heated moments at the pro-Bush rally when Bush supporters mistakenly identified two people as war protesters. The two walked in with a sign that read ''Say No to War -- Unless a Democrat is President.''

Many Bush supporters only saw the top of the sign and believed the men were war protesters, so they began shouting and chasing the pair out. One man tore up their signs.

When Will Marean of Minneapolis kept repeating that he was on the Bush side, one Bush supporter shook his hand and apologized.

Friendly fire

But they still haven't credited the Protest Warriors by name

Okay, I will admit they are right in that Cindy wants to meet with the enemy, but other than that, those people are pretty sick.

36. Yes, the freeps did most certainly freep themselves.
What fun. I must apologize, I spent most of the day driving a van and interestingly enough there was virtually no t-Moblie coverage. I only had a few minutes and then I never had enough time.

Thanks DU! You guys have been awesome. I heard from Wolverine that there were at least 20-30 DU'ers at one moment in time. My heart is glad.

What can I possibly say about the "counter protestors". Not much, but they got their just rewards.

I'm going to have to contemplate and get back with all of you when I finally reach home, hopefully tomorrow sometime before midnight.

Once again, and I'll say it 1'000 more times, DU'ers have been awesome and thank you all so much for every part you all have played.

I could not have done the small part I have done without the loving, caring support from all of you.

Sorry I didn't get back sooner. It was one hell of a crazy day and all MrA wanted to do was take a short vacation.

I'll share more of my perspectives later.

BY the way, Brad rocks the tent.

Basically they took off running.

So, when does the "Warrior" part of this group kick in? :rofl:

"Say No to War Unless a Democrat is President."
This is so nuanced as to be imperceptible. Shouldn't their saying be no war unless a rep is pres. ?

Wholly shit, I just got my 15 minutes of fame......name on Fox News's site and ABC....great! Just wish they had the video on there too. Made plans to stay in Waco until the Libs leave on Wednesday, doubt they will. You can read some about it on my blog and catch some pics. Kfir's getting the video from me and some guys from 1st Cav. Division, they came up from Ft. Hood to confront the protesters at Camp Casey II, yes for those of you who don't know they have two camps, and Cindy is at neither camp.

Hey Dude, believe it or not, the guy who tore up your signs was a freeper and he's is over at free republic bragging about it.

the s.o.b. is off claiming Protest Warrior had no place at the rally and "disrupted" it.

49. Why aren't these "Warriors" in Iraq? I understand that the recruiting
numbers are down, and they could probably use a few good "Warriors" over there.

And "sneak up on liberals"...to do what, exactly?
