Here is link to their successful protest against us at Halliburton -Dallas
http://www.protestwarrior.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=18...

Everyone, go grab these pics, please. I don't have the ability to do it, one of you has.

These counter protesters are going to make our lives hell the next few months. They are committed. So are we. We need your help. This is not looking good for any of us.

1. They aren't going to make your lives hell
because you aren't going to let them.

So they have a strong opinion. So do we. But look at the things they say---they want to SHUT YOU DOWN. How freaking un-American is THAT?

What in the hell is wrong with some people expressing their opinion? Are they so incredibly threatened by it (well this guy anyway seems to be)???

When is the next one? I'll be there. They're always disappointed to see a normal-looking soccer mom protesting war profiteering and bush.

2. Define 'successful.'
Edited on Sun May-23-04 11:12 PM by JaySherman
How was their protest successful? Looks to me like a half dozen morans flaunting their ignorance. The "I love Halliburton" guy is a real winner.

5. I agree with Jay here
don't freak out, most bushies are too apathetic to even bother going out there. He might get some people like this one or two more times, then it'll fall apart. Meanwhile you and yours (Dallas Peace Center) will keep on keeping on.

BTW, what in the WORLD would cause a person to have a problem with the Dallas Peace Center? I know those people, they are awesome.

10. and a fire plug
I count a handful, a telephone pole and a fire plug. Can't really tell with the backlighting.

One man standing there with a sign - "Haliburton has killed less people than Laura Bush's car." - That's fewer people, dimbulb. Didn't your English teacher larn ya nuthin?

I see they had to cancel one of their counter protests. They had no one to counter. The protest was moved to follow the board of directors.

It would be fun to plan a big protest and secretly relocate to a different venu without letting the counter protesters know it moved.
How about planning a big protest at Enron and switch it to Haliburton. Wouldn't the idiots look funny standing there with "I love Enron" t-shirts.

How about a big "Freedom of speech" rally. Let the counter protesters show up with anti-Freedom signs. That would show their true colors.

6. Yeah where's the pro life mom in the wheelchair
who was supposed to be there?

And if you read that whole thread of his (what he's UNEMPLOYED??? I thought only lazy liberals were layabouts! ROFL!) he really goes to a HELL of a lot of trouble....for THAT? Six people?

Um, ok. They can have some fun a couple of Fridays, then they'll get tired of it, like I said.

But I'll go out there.

17. What's that in the shade, under the flag in the background?
They can't be more counter protesters, because it looks like a bigger group and their pictures are not posted.

Don't let those slugs try to claim they are the true Americans because they have a flag. They will try to redefine what the American Flag stands for. To keep the redefinition from happening, the protesters should also have a flag or two.

8. Here are the pics.




These pics are really kinda pathetic. Usual freeper types.
The rest of the site was scary. Well financed and bigoted. Reminds me of some of the better organized White Supremacist sites.


There is not alot you can do about counter protests. This is America.


In the streets, I usually avoid all contact with the assholes. Don't get drawn into shouting matches or physical struggles for real estate. Ignore them and keep your peace. Your cause is just, and protected by the Constitution. Have a covert supporter video tape EVERYTHING. If laws are broken, get a lawyer and file suit. The videotape is good evidence.

Peace,
Bob
St Paul

Good advice
If you go head to um...head with these freeperzoids, make sure a video recorder is playing.

Keep it discreet. Have an extra blank tape in your pocket to switch out in case you have to turn over your camera to security. Swap out the real tape with the fake one if you have time. Or else act like you took the tape out and give them the blank one.

9. It's really nothing to worry about
You'll NEVER see them in the 10's of thousands like we have at our major protests. The way they post they try to sound so mean and tough.....and in huge numbers. Then when you see the photo's it's totally the opposite. It's hilarious.....LOL (just be careful of ole rimjob. He might shit his diaper and cause a big stink,but that's about all that will happen)....LOL

18. If they really wanted to support Bush,
They would enlist in the military so he wouldn't have to revive the draft. Let them know Uncle Sam wants them.

11. I appreciate all of you, but yes these people are committed to shutting us
down. They believe at this moment they shut us down last Friday and that they will continue to do so. If you read on their forum they had lots of fun and can't wait to do it again. They believe they won?! Beats me, I wasn't there, but I will be there tomorrow in the planning stages for more peaceful protests. We committed to this action the first of April. I think all that will make us stop is if the police ask it of us. Help us to not let that happen.

19. DU'ers check this out!
Attention ALL Protest Warriors!

The Democratic Underground is using their message boards to call for reinforcements for the next Halliburton Protest in Farmers Branch, TX!

How do I know?

A little birdie told me!

Link: Democratic Underground message board thread titled: "Has anybody here had any experience with this fun group? ProtestWarriors."

They are monitoring THIS forum, posting links to this thread, and quoting things that have been written here.

It seems they dont like when someone else also wants to use their First Amendment right and express an opinion in a peaceful manner especially if it runs counter to theirs.

---------------------------------

P.S - For you Du types, since I now know that you are monitoring this thread, be advised that I am not retired from the Marine Corps. I served Honorably from 1983 1993, and had to leave the service of my country due to the Reduction in Forces. I enlisted in the Texas Army National Guard after 9-11 to serve in the War on Terrorism (which Iraq is a part of).

I joined Protest Warrior to allow me to enhance my ability to exercise the same right as you people do freedom of speech.

I know how all of you LOVE to call anyone that doesnt agree with you a chicken hawk. Well, this is one person who has put actions behind his words. Guess you will have to find another lame argument to try to discredit me.

Look forward to seeing you guys this Friday!

You can say hello to me!

I dont bite (unless bitten)!



I don't know what to do with this!

20. Maybe Halliburton is covertly funding them.
Edited on Mon May-24-04 12:23 AM by Zorra
It would be extremely logical for Halliburton to seed organizers of a counter-protest organization to get legitimate protesters off their backs.

It might be a good idea to video record the protest in case they try to violently agitate.

22. Obviously, someone is investing a lot of money into this
check out their site: http://hq.protestwarrior.com/?page=chapters/list_chapte...

that's a LOT of work to create a site like that and maintain it.

I'd wager Halliburton is funding them, OR some wacko republican group.

23. My thoughts are the same. Who is funding them?
Much like www.cse.org , who is funding these nice people? If you go to their thread about the Exxon-Mobile Protest happening this week they are offering to pay for transportation to get to Dallas for anyone that will come. How off is that? How many of us little protesters within our organizations offer the same? Not many.

24. If you want to see the true thought capacity of one of them . . .
just go to www.fearbush.com and read some of the posts by "theInfragableKrunk"

You'll see the true cognitive capability of their members.

25. have you read the signs? there are only 1 or 2 counter-p's
the 2 guys on the right are counter-protesters (in fact if you read one of the messages on the ProtestWarrior site it says only 2 people are going to be able to come to the protest), all the rest are war protesters. the signs say "war has never solved anything," "nope, no WMDs here," "protect Islamic (illegible--sovereign?) rights against Western imperialism: say NO to war." One says "it was none of our business" and I wish I could see what the rest of it is. One picture shows a counter-protester (behind the protesters, with a sign that says "Halliburton has killed less people than Ted Kennedy's car") talking to 2 of the protesters (see how they are turned away from the street and toward the counter-p?). there are always a handful of nuts at protests but you guys do outnumber them and they make themselves look like the no-brainers they are.
