The Gathering of Eagles
Washington D.C. March 17th 2007.
Today was the four year mark for Operation Enduring Freedom. To mark the event, the group A.N S.W.E.R.(Adolescent Nutroots Supporting Warped Evil Regimes?) Decided to organize an Anti-War rally to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the 1967 “March on the Pentagon”. The 1967 event drew over 500,000 protesters, including one LSD fueled Abbie Hoffman who organized a mass chant intended to levitate the Pentagon 300 feet into the air and shake out all the evil. That plan worked about as well as A.N.S.W.E.R.’s latest Anti-American fiasco. It seems that some of the more anarchistic members of the Anti-Government crowd, had threatened to deface some Veterans War Memorials as they had done to the Capitol Steps after their last visit. True or not, Veterans from all over the country organized a counter-protest to protect the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and other sites near the march route. It was called “The Gathering of Eagles”, and unlike A.N.S.W.E.R’s “Rent-a-Mob’s”, it was not funded by George Soros, or the American Socialist Party, or CAIR. It was a true grass-roots coalition which was organized in less than six weeks by Mil-bloggers, Veterans organizations, Rolling Thunder, and others. The main stream media has put the number of anti-war protesters at 10-15,000 strong. Fox news and other non-MSM types are estimating that the “Gathering of Eagles” mustered around 30,000 participants. The Moonbats were made to march through a gantlet of Pro-American counter protesters lining both sides of the march route. They did not look very happy. As they crossed over the Main Bridge they were greeted with a large banner reading “GO TO HELL TRAITORS-YOU DISHONOR OUR SACRED DEAD”.
I am overwhelmed and inspired by our Veterans and their supporters. We are beginning to take back the streets from the Communists(Yes, I said Communists-bought and paid for). The main speaker for the nutroots was Mama Moonbat herself, Cindy Sheehan. Upon her introduction on stage there arose such a chorus of Boo’s that I doubt anyone actually heard her speech(although she was not prevented from speaking!). Finally, after 40 years, one can look a Vietnam Vet in the eye and say “Well done, Mission Accomplished!”
Proud once again to be an American!~Muninn
