59. the freepers are always good for laughs...they're quite far from us
Edited on Mon Oct-20-03 01:38 PM by amen1234
over on the steps of the Capital, way on the other side of the Mall...those 'angry white guys' have lots of money, but few actual people...sometimes, in an attempt to show diversity (or even just to show anyone in attendance), they PAY some DC Homeless People to come over ....this is, of course, a big boost for DC Homeless People, they get some cash, and a little food...I always think it's interesting to talk to DC Homeless People, and whenever I get a chance, I do chat with the DC homeless people (afterall, there but for the grace of God, go I) could interview a few for your's such a stark contrast to the freeper people, who actually HATE the homeless and want them to DIE...DC Homeless People can be both educated and intelligent, but it's pretty useless to try to carry on a conversation with a freeper...

the freeper protest will be both humorous, and make you cry for the stupidity of it....a real study in insanity...I can't even figure out why they are so opposed to our BRING OUR TROOPS HOME NOW ! March...I guess the freeper theme is SUPPORT OUR TROOPS....and who knows what that means...maybe they want our troops to stay in Iraq as sitting ducks, so we can read about their deaths everyday in the newspapers and add many many more to our hospitals and disability programs...

on edit: the WP article states that the freepers protest is also encompassing the NEW 'happy Iraqi...everything is just fine in Iraq' theme...

-snip about the freepers' from the WP

The D.C. chapter of a grass-roots conservative group, Free Republic, is holding an 11 a.m. counter-demonstration at the West Front of the Capitol, near the reflecting pool on Third Street. about 1,000 people are expected.

Kristinn Taylor, 41, local co-leader of the group, said the rally will show support for troops overseas. "The biggest thing we want to do is give voice to the good things that have been happening over in Iraq, which we think are not getting out," Taylor said.

Among the many antiwar groups, ANSWER, which stands for Act Now to Stop War and End Racism, is one of the most controversial, enraging critics such as Taylor, who say it is a bastion of communists and anti-Semites.
