I was proud to attend today's "Gathering of Eagles" (GOE) counter-protest to the large anti-war march to the Pentagon and was pleased find the attendance by many loyal veterans and Americans. Those carrying American flags and backing our men and women in uniform arrived and participated in very large numbers. I was impressed and pleased.

The dingbats were also in very large numbers and behaved shamefully. They didn't do so without direct, loud and clear commentary from the assembled patriotic souls and faced a sea of American flags flying stiffly in the cold wind. The "moonbat" crowd did shameful things to the few American flags that they had - including altering the to stars and replacing them with dishonorable symbols and later - dragging the American flag on the ground.

The voices and messages of those of us flying the American flag with pride were numerous, loud and gave absolutely no quarter. I was proud to raise my voice with them. The event began with the dingbat anti-war protesters assembled near the State Department giving their shrill speeches. The Gathering of Eagles patriots were assigned an area on the opposite side of the Viet Nam Veteran's Memorial wall and it was a proud display of U.S. flags. The Pledge of Allegence was said and our National Anthem played in sight of the Wall. The Memorial was very well protected and there were no incidents that I'm aware of.

I later met and joined ARFCOM's Bulldog1967 near the anti-war protestor site and we (and another 1,000+) patriots stood on the north side of the Lincoln Menorial - across the street from the dinbat assembly and made our low regard for their ideals known - American flags flying proudly.

At 1:00PM the antis began the march across the Memorial Bridge and the GOE moved to the bridge to counter their negative message in front of the press (lots of American flags flying along the bridge is a good counter). Initially three veterans blocked the start of the "march" by standing silently at attention in the middle of the road. They did not move when the Park Police motorcycle cops zapped them with their sirens and remained motionless for a few minutes. It was clear that the Park Police didn't want to arrest them - and with their point made and the antis delayed - they re-joined us one traffic lane away from the flow of antis.

The long march of antis was filled with loud and clear commentary from the GOE patriots (I doubt I'll have much of a voice tomorrow ). We flew American flags and they flew rainbow, peace and all manner of flags other than the American flag (a few rare exceptions). Our American flags stood tall.

One group of antis was dishonoring a 5-foot American flag and two guys from the GOE patriots broke ranks, grabbed the flag and a tussle began. Some fists flew, there was some shoving and he ultimately got control of the flag from a greater number of antis. The Park Police grabbed him and he made the quickest, cleanest lateral pass to another veteran who ran back to our ranks with the flag. Some in the anti crowd stopped marching and plotted how to regain the flag - but that would have been a great mistake. They ultimately gave it up (they don't care about our flag anyway) and there is a photo below of two veterans holding it up.

I was pleased to be among the thousands of veterans and Americans that came to show pride in our nation, pride in our military, pride in our flag and to show a clear, positive counter to the negative image and message of the antis in front of the national press.

Here are some photos to give you an idea of the event.

God Bless America,

CWO

You will notice that the favorite color of the antis is yellow (imagine that...). These pics show their assembly area, protest signs and the patriots flying American flags on the near side to counter their negative message.







Park Police were close by to keep order

Cool. Only way for it to have been better was if a bunch of moonbat commies got their asses kicked for desecrating the American flag.

More anti protest area and the strong patriot crowd. When Cindy Sheehan stood up to speak - the booing and noise from the patriots made it impossible for the antis to hear her comments about 75% of her speech









Nice photo with the Lincoln Memorial at our backs:




Notice the anti displaying the American flag upside down:

So the wussy liberals adopted YELLOW as their predominant color?

Figures.

The GOE patriots wait for the antis to get their act in gear for the march. The Lincoln Memorial in the background while the patriots wait.

It looks like this GOE patriot has dealt with the scummy moonbat-types before. She came prepared this time!






The start of the antis march:




In this photo you'll see that the antis altered the red and white stripes on an American flag to create an peace symbol . The normal American flags belong to the GOE patriots in the background.

The antis march (more like amble...)





The mounted Park Polce clear the space between the antis and the patriots as it gets a little loud between the two (mostly us! )

AWESOME job Bro !!!


The counter protesters RUINED the circle jerk the MSM had planned for this.

JUST FABULIOUS!!!

It's great to see that so many real Americans showed up to counter those clowns. I only wish I could have afforded to be there myself.

God bless America , and those who would defend it against ALL enemies.
Link Posted: 3/17/2007 5:38:21 PM EDT
The MSM is saying the Cindy Shehag supporters dwindled to less than 1000 due to the cold weather. Wimps.

THe MSM ignored covering the GOE supporters. Go figure. FTMSM.

Wow, did you notice...not one American flag on the side of those Godless protestors. Poor misguided idiots.

Both sides get up close and personal (we moved in on them ):












One of the GOE event Marshals (orange) gently holds back the veteran in the black beret to keep him from stomping some moonbats:




One of the few flags the antis know:




There were several moonbats that wanted the U.S. out of IRAN



Here is the photo I promised (saved for last). When antis were abusing an American flag - two veterans (not those pictured) wrestled it away from them and the flag now lives in friendly hands where it will be respected and be displayed proudly as a reminder of those antis who hold this nation and the freedoms we enjoy through the great sacrifice of many military men and women - in such poor regard. Here it is displayed with pride:



I proudly salute our military and our great nation.

"War supporter". Fucking retards! I wonder if the "R" means republican?
Link Posted: 3/17/2007 6:35:48 PM EDT
Absolutley awesome !!!

Wish that I could have been there with our brothers and sisters to show support for our troops, our country and our way of life.

This is who we are.

If you really want it, then come and take it hippie .

We'll be waiting.
Link Posted: 3/17/2007 6:37:46 PM EDT
Great to meet you too CWO!

I can hardly speak as my voice is GONE from screaming at the moonbats.

The sheer inane stupidity on display from the far left socialist hippy tree hugging non-bathing traitorous scum was quite amazing.

It made me proud to meet you and fellow arfcommers, as well as other vets and bikers, coming together to unite to make sure the "Vietnamization" of our current war does NOT happen easily here at home.

Semper Fi.

Theoretically it would mean "right" as in "right hand side" of the photo. I don't know why they'd need that though, considering he's the only one they could be talking about.

You are VERY welcome. It is the least that we can do. It would do your heart proud to see the veterans and loyal Americans standing shoulder-to-shoulder, flags snapping in the wind and backing our troops 150 percent. We were there in great numbers and made a big impression - because we care.

We were doing just a small part to show those idiots that they are on the WRONG SIDE of this equation.

We couldn't do it without YOUR support in harms way.

Easily..I don't have actual numbers, but I was ALL over and we EASILY outnumbered the maggots at LEAST 2:1

Of course the media greatly inflated THEIR numbers.
