Call me naive or call me stupid, but...
Edited on Sun Jul-25-04 12:10 PM by orlandoFL
what are the freeps going to protest at the convention?
Possibly the Dem pro-choice stand?
What else is going to get them out in force?

or is it just going to be a W04 rally?

I mean, there's all kinds of material for the Rethug gig in New York next month, but I am stumped as to what the signs are going to read.

(edit for typo)

1. Seriously...
I think the DNC should cut a deal with the protestors. Give them some hybrid cars, in exchange they go to the RNC in New York.

2. I think they are going to protest the dems protest in NYC.
They KNOW that one is going to be huge and are trying to one up us or something. Which won't work because we all know they have nothing to really protest against.

"Hiss, Democrats, they care about the working man. Booo"

"What do we want 'War' When do we want it 'now'" or something.

5. Don't forget the anarchists
Edited on Sun Jul-25-04 03:17 PM by Capn Sunshine
These folk are dedicated, organized, and unpredictable. They are just as pissed at the Democrats as the Republicans.

I predict they will be the biggest source of trouble.

Although if they get into the same ring with the Freepers, all hell will break loose.

It will be like a cage match.These guys are experienced street fighters and LOVE to mix it up with anyone who opposes them. Lookout Freepers!

6. I really hope that won't happen
Even if it's two groups unrelated to the Democrats, fights aren't gonna look good.

We both have Prufrock in our sigs!

8. You may be on to something!
Why can't we encourage other groups to attend the "protest?"

With a Libertarian faction, a Republican faction, an Anarchist faction, Constitutional party faction, Taxpayer Party faction, Independent faction, Reform Faction, etc, etc, etc...

All those factions will surely dilute any message of protest, because you know, we can only arrange so many free speech zones, so they have to be very small zones so as to allow the most free speech.

Right?

Im sure there will be a few of these who need to put other people down to make themselves feel important.
