Chester Rally – Part Two

“First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win.” – Mahatma Gandhi

Our pro-victory/pro-freedom rally made the front page of the Daily Local News! One quote from Karen Porter, director of the weekly protests in front of the Courthouse, stood out:

Porter said she does think that Davis “is a nice guy … (but) the man that I saw speaking was not the man that I had spoken with before. “I was quite surprised by his speech,” Porter said, “all the name calling.”

Well, she would be the resident expert on name calling, as evidenced by Karen Porter herself in an email to her groupies after Saturday’s protest:

Message: 1Date: Sat, 29 Sep 2007 17:00:09

EDTFrom: Ccpeacemovement@aol.com

Subject: [Peace] Thanks to all of you who came out to today’s
vigil. My take on it.

To: peace@list s.wayreth.netMessage-ID: c31.1c24a0be.343016d9@aol.com

If Rich Davis, head of the counter-protestor group, contacts me (which I Figure he will) with a “How did it go?”, here’s what I’ve drafted, Which I’ll Share with you now. I’ve been gracious and understanding, but I’m also No Doormat – so here goes: Scene: Lovely early autumn West Chester day. Our folks out with the Usual Signs. Peace troubadors playing and singing. Counter-protestors with Motor Cycles, leather-and-metal outfits and boots (picture Hell’s Angels), Women-folk with very harsh mouths and hardened expressions, American Flags all over.

Imagine that, American Flags are upsetting to Karen – remember, she is the first to say she supports our troops. Women with harsh mouths and hardened expressions? Perhaps she confused some of her own membership with this description – examples of which I present below:


Even Karen herself could not muster a smile…

Conversely, the pro-victory side included smiling, well educated, and well groomed women.

Her email goes on to further insult those who dress and think differently from herself – is this Quaker way of acceptance? Oh wait – Karen is NOT a Quaker, she only usurps the mantle of Quaker for her weekly protests. What would Jesus say about Karen?

Yes, Rich, it was peaceful. But, no, it was not a pleasant experience. And, no, we will not be moved. I’m sorry, but some of the people there, whether they are “peaceful” Or not, Dressed up in costumes that only say, “I won’t hurt you because those Cops Are here – but I would if I could.” I felt like I was either at a Halloween party or in a Viagra Commercial with A bunch of old guys (were any of them from West Chester?) who just Can’t Find any other way to express themselves. On one level, I felt sorry For them, That they feel compelled to put on a show like that in the streets of West Chester (which, trust me, strives for a very different ambience than That Display today). On another level, I found them repugnant and obnoxious, Not because Of their appearance so much, but because of their obvious hatred for us.

I believe the above paragraph covers all the “-isms” – Ag-ism, Sexism, Class-ism. Have I missed any? Her next barrage uses bully tactics to further denigrate the citizens who stood in support of victory this past Saturday. She seemed to have selective sight when it came to the signs displayed by her own groupies. Although, Frakking for Peace isn’t so much insulting as it is ridiculous:

The people you brought there today were rude and insulting – liketelling people in cars to whom we gave impeachment literature they should use it as toilet paper (over and over again). Several people who walked by asked me,”What’s the freak show? Is this a circus, or what? Where did these thugs come from?” The word “thugs”crossed a lot of lips of passers-by today.

My favorite line of this email entailed her invoking Jesus in her malicious diatribe. Like, you know, Jesus was right behind Rich during his speech. Jesus was no fan of religious marketers – ‘Then give to Caesar what is Caesar’s and unto God what is God’s – Luke 20:20-26. What I’d like to know, where was Jesus in this email????

Like, who are you – really? Where was Jesus in that
speech?

I believe it is time for Karen to give up the Ghandi quote, as she has become what Ghandi so passionately resisted. The public face of this organization is belied by the vicious back channel smear campaign waged upon Rich and his supporters – including a dog, by Karen and her group. Can we then extrapolate that their public support of the troops and for peace is a facade as well?

Chester County Courthouse Freedom Rally

A crisp fall day greeted this band of citizens who gathered at the Chester County Courthouse to make it known that the protesting ‘quakers’ and students looking for an easy ‘A’ , do not speak for ALL Americans.

This display of Pro American/ Pro Victory support started out as a one-man operation. Rich at times faced agression by the gathered ‘peace’ protestors. He has been described by Karen Porter, director of the Chester County Peace Movement, as a war-monger who wanted to start trouble at their rally. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Rich responded to his encounters with the ‘peace’ protestors with respect and goodwill, behaviors rarely displayed by Karen and her followers. These are the same individuals who attempted to characterize a retired Veteran’s dog as being agressive and a reason for them to call 911 during the protest if the dog was present.



On the right side of this debate:
Wayne Lutz headed up a contingent of patriots to stand in support of Rich at this rally. Concerned citizens of West Chester stopped by to show their support for America and Rich. Area bloggers made an appearance – J_G, blogmistress of “Now For Something Different’. Also, I had the great pleasure to meet the author of ‘Target Rich Environment“. We even had a friend from across the pond joining in support of America and the troops.

The media was also in attendance: Two journalists from the Philadelphia Inquirer, a staff writer from the Evening Bulletin and a reporter from a local newspaper. I’m curious to read how the Inquirer reports on this event, as I had a bit of a run in with the photojournalist from the Inquirer – the girl had absolutely no professional manner. I gave her my card, at least when she misquotes me, my name will be spelled correctly.

Towards the end of the rally, Rich took to the podium and gave one hell of rousing speech. Ironically, his speech was interrupted by the ‘peace’ protestors. These same individuals who are usually the first to claim their rights of free speech are being suppressed were quick to suppress the free speech right of others.

Chester County Courthouse Protest


This past Saturday, I attended a small Pro-Victory rally which countered the Anti-everythings from Chester County. I also use the protest as an opportunity to work with my new Canon MiniDV, the results were put together into a small video for your perusal.

DC Vlog ~ Gathering of Eagles



I was a tired blogger when I filmed this vlog. The video was shot with the Canon ZR-830, the lighting was whatever light I had turned on and natural sunlight.

This Gathering of Eagles had quite a different tone than the past two events. The Eagles certainly got the attention of Code Pink and ANSWER, and I’m curious to see how these groups respond. You know it is quite rude to throw a party then show up two hours late! As in March, the moonbats were scarce on the mall prior to their march. An excuse given for the lateness of their march was of a delay on the metro’s Orange and Blue lines. Funny, the Orange line was working well when we traveled from the hotel to the Mall. I also heard reports of a ‘soup kitchen’ set up to give anyone who showed up a sandwich and a lovely yellow sign to carry around that day.

Other bloggers who I had the opportunity to spend time with in DC:

Kitchen Vlog

My first step into the vlogging arena. Enjoy!

For those interested – this video was recorded using the video function of a Nikon Coolpix P2 which was sitting on a tripod. The video was recorded in an .avi format which I converted to an WMV format.

The video was edited and organized with Photoshop Premier Elements 3.0.

Not sure what was going on with the hair.

This video is rated PG-13- you’ve been warned.


Go check out The City Troll’s - TrollCast – the inspiration for this vlog.

Garage Treasures

You never know what you may find wrapped in a plastic bag and shoved into the back of a storage cabinet.

I’m in the process of reclaiming my garage from years of disuse in hopes of better managing the storage space and to use it as a studio for my Vlogging endeavors.

Going through the contents of a soon to be trashed storage cabinet, I discovered these newspaper timecapsules of Philadelphia history. The Philles Pennent win in 1980 and the last printing of the The Bulletin in 1982. I could not resist photographing the old Bulletin with its modern day reincarnation. It was a hoot to read a doom and gloom opinion piece about Reagan 2nd year as President. Let me share with you this quote from the article, written by Sandy Grady:

“Reagan’s popularity is down in the polls. He stands lower than most modern Presidents at this stage. The recession lingers. Unemployment nears the deepest point since World War 2. And Reagan is drawing criticism from his hard-core conservative supporters. “

Replace Reagan’s name with Bush and you have today’s leading story in the New York Times. This is coming from an arguably conservative newspaper.
