Warm 'n Fuzzy Conserva-Puppies: Code Pink Sounds the Retreat!

Last night [ed...Friday]outside the main entrance to Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington DC, the anti-war leftists of Code Pink were forced into an ignominious retreat! They were obliged to abandon their protest corners and seek refuge a block away, where they licked their wounds. For at least one evening, the wounded troopers in the hospital, some of whom can see the entrance where all this takes place from their windows, did not have to see the Pinkos who mock them with their fake vigils.

The battle was not won with bombs or bullets, or even with force of numbers. We simply outmaneuvered them...

Warm 'n Fuzzy Conserva-Puppies: Code Pink Sounds the Retreat!

This was Tom the Redhunter. He and I have conversed several times and I have posting privileges at the Conserva-puppies though I've been very dilinquent in posting (for months actually).

I will not give away all of our conversations, but on a recent email Tom was telling me about a conversation he had with a vet from the Vietnam era about the current episodes of protesting and anti-war activity. He said he remembered a comment I made at his site about the difference between then and now and he paraphrased it to the vet.

The difference is that, this time, we are not abandoning the public square to only those who voice dissent.

I was very humbled by Tom's email and that he remembered that long ago comment.

I wanted to thank Tom publically for all his efforts and all of those (freepers) that go every Friday to Walter Reed to show support for our men and women in uniform.

I think it's interesting that whenever I read an editorial or some other report regarding the "freepers" of Free Republic, they are often referred to as "fringe", "right-wing" or "radical" even.

Interestingly, you never see those same kind of words used for groups like Code Pink or the "anti-war" protests that are often headed up by "ANSWER", which is a radical socialist "workers" group, and includes such interesting folks as Anarchists and Communists, Anti-Semitics, Pro-Palestinians, etc, etc, etc. Those same groups will carry around signs about "baby killers", "no blood for oil", "9/11 was an inside job", urging soldiers to shoot their officers, calling the terrorists "Freedom Fighters" or legitimate resistance and carrying around flag draped caskets representing our soldiers killed in action while carrying offensive signs.

Worse yet, the Code Pink crowd stood outside of Walter Reed with signs that read "maimed for a lie" (Tom and the freepers have photos of the signs in earlier posts). Or maybe the worst was when they sent $600,000 in supplies to the insurgents in Fallujah. This is the group that Murtha met with and then assisted in getting them inside Walter Reed to see some of the troops and hand out "baskets" of items in order show their "support".

Maybe Murtha and some other folks are fooled by this endeavor, but the troops aren't and neither are we.

We no longer cede the public square. That is why I blog and why many others do.

Yet, to some so called "journalists" and opinion makers, it is people like Tom and the freepers who are the radical or right "wing" implying somebody who does not represent any majority.

I know what these folks really are: patriots. They are the "silent majority" who have sworn not to cede the public square and, in this case, they actually took it back completely.

I just wanted to say, "Thank you."

PS...Don't miss Gunn Nutts' report and even more pictures. It simply warms the cockles of your heart.

"It was a soul-stirring moment when the WR bus came back from dinner. The driver swung into the entrance and stopped for quite a long time, turning on the inside light so we could cheer our beloved heroes and see their smiling faces. Chants of 'USA! USA! USA!' swelled as we exchanged hearty waves and thumbs-up with them. On the opposite side of the light a smaller WR transport van was also honking wildly, joining in for a heroes welcome."

Don't forget that part of this war is at home.

Sisku Hanne: How many of our heroes came to WR as a result of the $600,000 Code Pink sent to the insurgents? How many of our heroes have been maimed or killed because Gael Murphy and Cindy Sheehan publicly proclaimed the 'right' of the insurgents to shoot at our troops? Commie-worshipping Pinkos give aid and comfort to the enemy, we will NEVER give them an unopposed moment. We will not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail!"

We will not cede the public square.
