ANSWER March on the Pentagon

| March 21, 2009 | 34 Comments

Since the sixth anniversary of the beginning of the Iraq War was the other day, ANSWER and it’s assorted affiliates of beggars, drama queens and ne’er-do-wells picked today out of the air to hold their March on the Pentagon.

Brian Becker, the national coordinator for ANSWER said it’s important because it’s the first anti-war protest in the Post-Bush Era. So here’s the photos

This was the most appropriate thought – a bumper sticker on the back of a coat;

Ever wonder what happened to the folks in your high school band after they graduated? Here they are;

Of course, if we fly Palestinian flags, that’ll end the war in Iraq sooner, won’t it?
ANSER 031

There was a contingent of Free Republic on the route to the Pentagon. There were also GOE folks guarding the Vietnam Wall and I kick myself for not taking their pictures. But here’s the FReepers;

The FReepers made some folks angry;

Now TSO and I moved away from the FReepers, but this brave fellow, ya know with the mask and separated from us by two snow fences started calling us names. Then he tried to tell us he is a Marine who “defected”;

I didn’t see her sign, but whatever it says, I’m up for it;

More photos on my Flickr Photostream. Some of them are from the FReepers who let me upload them while I was there. Like this one of one of our regulars;
ANSWER 093
This is a video of the IVAW Treefort Phase II;

Here’s some of the marchers on their way to the Pentagon;


Age of Hooper (The) was there and is also putting pictures up.

Uncle Jimbo has his interviews with the Code Pink girls up at Blackfive and Ace of Spades. I forgot to mention that Marooned in Marin was there, too, and he has photos up. It’s beginning to look like there are more conservative bloggers at these things than protesters.

Folks are asking for crowd estimates – if ANSWER says more that 3,000 people were there, they’re nuts.

  1. Nixon says:

    Jonn,

    Link for your Flickr Photostream is busted. I wanted to see more Hezbollah flags. I wonder where you get one of those, is there like a website?

  2. Nixon says:

    Haha, the Iraq flag at IVAW still has the three stars on it (which is no longer the official one). The three stars represented the tenets of the Ba’ath party (which is obviously why they were removed in 2008). Why does IVAW support the Saddam’s Ba’ath party?

  3. Jonn, wanna bet those freaks will claim to have 100,000 there again this time, even though their anti-military movement has been on life support since 3/17/07?

  4. airborne injun says:

    Jonn,Your job must really suck…I couldn’t stand being around those ass clowns all day,you know,with my anger management issues and such.Thank GOD there are folks like you who can handle it and get it out there for us to see!

    P.S.I always thought that TSO was taller and younger than in his picture posted above.BTW…TSO, that sign you’re holding is totally blocking your face. *snerk*

  5. TSO says:

    All this anti-war activity is prematurely aging and shrinking me.

    Now, if you don’t mind, I will get back to hating those infernal lobbyist bastards!

  6. airborne injun says:

    TSO…Don’t be sore,Nixon promised me a case of beer if I would post that!

  7. Skye says:

    Jonn, there you go again making Elvis nervous on camera.

    Wish I was there…

  8. Skye says:

    Were are the ‘Impeach Obama’ signs? Oh, wait, you can’t hold signs calling for the buffoon’s impeachment if you voted for him on Nov. 2nd.

    Jonn wrote: It’s funny but I didn’t talk to anyone who admits they voted for Obama.

  9. Southern Democrat says:

    Looks to me like the good people of this country were able to assemble in a pretty impressive group! You all are just angry that your tea party looked like it didn’t even occur compared to DC today!!

    Home sales are rising, stock market is stabilizing….WE WON!

  10. Skye says:

    Good, hairy people of this country barely made a presence today. Nothing impressive,except for the massive stupidity.

    Home sales rising? Did we really need to spend 7 trillion dollars when it would balance itself out??

    What precisely did you win? You can have the 7 trillion debt.

  11. Southern Democrat says:

    Ah, the old “sit back and let it fix itself” routine. I think maybe living up above the Amish, you forget how the real world works Skye.

    Relaxation of the regulations that allowed for home sales under BUSH led to bank greed plummeting this country into a credit freeze. If your President wasnt busy wagging the dog in Iraq, trying to distract us from his incompetence, perhaps he would have seen that and done something about it before 2008….

    Thank God Clinton had the economy so healthy when he handed it off to Dubya..can you imagine how bad it would be if it fell this much and only started from mediocre??

  12. I didn’t see enough of a crowd there to count as a crowd. There are more people in the current unemployment line in Detroit.
    The whacked out idiot is still proud that the Libs won and America Lost. Just part of the BDS. Wonder what the dipshit will use for his withdrawal meds………..
    Stock market stabalizing? My sources say a slow rise to 8,000 then one hell of a rude awakening for anyone still sleeping through this trainwreck. The Fat Lady hasn’t sang on this one yet Folks.

  13. Coby says:

    I’m sorry, that first bumper sticker is hilarious.

  14. There are more people in the current unemployment line in Detroit.
    >>

    True, but There are more people in the current unemployment line in Detroit than are in line for Tigers opening day tickets. Or Red Wings tickets. Or Pistons tickets.

    Combined.

    Alas.

    Hey Southern Democrat,

    I recently applied for a job in a mental hospital. They told me before they could hire me I had to prove I could spend a full 24 hours with a retard. Want to come over and hang out tommorrow? I have candy.

  16. Which president should we credit with sitting during the time of the “Redline” removal. Which president was sitting when it was determined that everyone had a “right” to a mortgage? Which president was sitting when his high interest rates caused the industry to foist balloon payments on the underfinanced ignorants who over spent their budget? And when did the balloon of those payments come to fruition, (spell that “explode”)? The uneducated BDS afflicted Libs give Dubya far too much credit. It is congress that does the legislating, the spending, the tax increasing. We see it now with the Menage A Trois that is in place.
    But anyway, to get back on track. What a pitifully low turnout to such a diverse collection of Anti-Americans.

  17. WOTN says:

    Idiots on Parade, thankfully, the Bill of Rights protects not only the right to be stupid, but the right to tell the world how stupid you are.

    Unfortunately, 3,000 or so showed up to let Jonn take their picture demonstrating proof eternal of their stupidity.

    It’s days like this that I’m glad to be in the south, where people like SD hide their faces. A place where Gore and Obama were both seen for their true colors, even if we had too many party loyalists vote for the Obama rubber stamp in the House of Reprehensibles.

  18. SpideyTerry says:

    Ah, it does my heart good to see a pack of unpatriotic, terrorist-supporting, anti-Israeli, imbecilic pinheads. *snark*

    I’d have probably not bothered commenting on those idiots as I’ve already mocked their kind so much already, but I heard about the Hezbollah flag. Nice one, morons. You’re offering further proof of the far left’s insanity.

    “Jonn wrote: It’s funny but I didn’t talk to anyone who admits they voted for Obama.”

    Huh, maybe they’re not as imbecilic as I thought.

    Nah.

    “Thank God Clinton had the economy so healthy when he handed it off to Dubya..can you imagine how bad it would be if it fell this much and only started from mediocre??”

    Can you imagine how much better off we’d be if Clinton had dealt with al Qaeda during his eight years instead of virtually ignoring the problem and even enabling them to take refuge in Taliban-led Afghanistan?

  19. Anti Anti says:

    Why can’t the Columbine shooters show up at these events? Or maybe a few HAMAS suicide killers? It would be so cool.

  20. Anonymous says:

    The “Socialist Appeal” girl is hot. Makes me want to turn in my “Islamophobe” badge.

    A.N.S.W.E.R.

    It must have been a really stupid question.

  22. Nice work.

    I went to the ANSWER demonstration in Hollywood today. The kooks were out em mass.

    I’ll try to get my pictures posted tomorrow night, Monday at the latest.

    I took pictures of a number of IVAW folks who were there. If you know any of their names or anything else about these guys please email me the info.

    Thanks for your great website. I check in here everyday even if I don’t always leave a comment.

    Ya know? WE do hafta give Unca Jimbo credit fer capturing two foxes…..on camera that is.

  25. defendUSA says:

    Southern democrat, you really are a village idiot. Get lost.

  26. defendUSA says:

    Spidey-
    Clinton couldn’t take care of AQ because he cut the military and squandered the peacetime dividends for blow jobs. Yes, indeed. Instead of improving on technology and warfare machinery (like body armor, and vehicles that could withstand bombs and such) we got nothing. And then, GWB had to put us in hock to fight after Billy Jeff’s own jamie Gorelick built that little wall between the CIA and the FBI.

    Fuck you, Southern Dipshit.

  27. Steve says:

    Thank you! I almost went myself to take pictures, wound up going to Charles Town Casino instead. Compare and contrast these folks to ones at a:

  28. Need more pictures of the socialist babe! And her phone number, so she can be converted away from the kafia and towards capitalism, conservatism, and adulthood.

    These sheeple don’t deserve to be murdered & I don’t wish that fate on any American. Different opinions, no matter how assinine, shouldn’t be a green light for atrocity.

  30. UpNorth says:

    Hey SD, check out what the AP had to say about the “protest”. They said that “hundreds” showed up. “Pretty impressive group”? You must be easily impressed, but you’ve already proved that with the tongue bath you give the Obamunist. Stock market stabilizing? 7278 for the Dow, down 122 on Friday. Yeah, the investors are impressed and now we’re expected to swallow a $3.6 Trillion budget? One that further weakens our country, while bailing out ACORN and who knows who else. Chris Dodd has yet to insert his hidden language.

  31. Raoul says:

    Southern Democrat,

    Greed, greed, greed. How about the greed of those too lazy and too stupid to earn a “good” living.

    And stupid does apply. They had a chance at a good education but decided that something else was more important.

    Take you lazy, stupid and greedy friends and get out of my country because you’re a drag on the common good.

  32. Just A Grunt says:

    Look guys we need to look for the silver lining in all things and I think I found it. Notice how slim Uncle Jimbo looks next to Adam?

  33. Yorktownpatriot says:

    I was holding the sign depicted the Criminal Che Guevara
    with a crossed out circle stating “Che is dead , get over it”.
    The maggotty moonbat contingent seemed to get bent over my sign.
    They didn’t take to my son’s hanging Jane Fonda effigy either.
    One “peaceful” idiot even threw a picket sign, post first, in my son’s direction..lucky for him it didnt hit home.
    I would’ve gone directly into the crowd and whipped his sorry backside.
    Even though our Frreper contingent was smaller than usual, our side had immeasurely more spirit,class and patriotic resolve than the cretin protesters could ever imagine.
    We’re ready for the next rally,..bring us some more misguided fools for us to vent upon!

    That’s bullshit on stilts. Accumulated info on the Tea Parties:

    “Home sales are rising, stock market is stabilizing….WE WON!”

    I live in a Democratic stronghold 30 miles West of Cleveland. There’s been so many foreclosures and folded businesses in this area, it’s not funny.

    Even home improvement outlets are failing:

    And guess what? Obamessiah’s tax/spend/bailout orgy will result in a worse deficit than expected:

    The director of the Congressional Budget Office today updated his projections for the budget and economic outlook and is now anticipating a $1.8 trillion deficit this year, and $1.4 trillion in 2010.
    This is up from CBO director Douglas W. Elmendorf’s January 2009 projection of a $1.2 trillion deficit this year. In short, the US government is borrowing 50 cents for every dollar it spends.
    The new projected deficit is four times the 2008 deficit, which was a record high for its time.

    Keep drinking the Kool-Aid, sucker.
