So-Called “Peace” Activist Attacks OIF Veteran & His Family – AAR
For those questioning the validity of the “peace” protestor assault on the soldier and his family (which I posted about HERE) (1), feel free to actually go to the Gathering of Eagles-NY website and read the posted AAR (After Action Report) (2) filed and posted by the military member whose family was assaulted. They are working on getting their video posted and possibly filing charges against the people who assaulted them. They will be posting updates, so feel free to check back often there, instead of just ignorantly speculating on whether things are “fishy” or not.
Also, as a few have mentioned already, this is SOP for the “peace” crowd (3), and has been since 2003. These are not just simply a few ‘radicals’ that make the rest of the so-called “peace” movement look badly. This *is* the “peace” movement. They are not for peace, they are simply anti-‘American involvement in stopping evil around the world’. If the “peace” movement was truly for peace, they would be taking their asses to the countries where evil exists and protesting the terrorists, dictators and oppressive regimes that start these wars. But they don’t. Therefore, they are worthless. Not to mention, the leaders of these movements – Medea Benjamin and the Communists of CODE PINK, International A.N.S.W.E.R., World Can’t Wait, etc – are anti-America and pro-terrorists and pro-dictators. In fact, the CODE PINKo Commies held a fund-raiser and then sent the $600,000 they raised to the terrorists in Fallujah, Iraq back in 2004 or 2005. Google it.
No peace protester in history has ever done anything to stop evil. None. Period. The true peacemakers are those of the United States military. But you’ll never hear that acknowledged from anyone in the “peace” movement.

[ … ] I have arrested a few people in my career, and let me clear up for anyone wondering that anyone who puts a boot to someone lying on the ground or punches a minor in the face is going to be dealing with me and shortly after that, they will be on their way to jail in the back of my patrol car.
You have to go the link, if you haven’t already and read the first person account of what happened.
I am getting so tired of having to be angry about things like this. I know that our own civil disobedience counter protests is having an effect, otherwise they would not react this way. There should be no reason that the police are not taking sides; because that is their job.
But no CNN, no MSNBC, or the alphabet networks speaking to this. Just crickets….
Obama talks about chickens coming home to roost…
There is going to come a time in this country, that is probably not long from now, that these “peace” activists are going to get what is coming to them for the despicable ways that they are treating veterans and their families.
I am getting tired of these Peace Fascists, Libtard College Professors and Protester Thugs believing that their free speech is “more equal” than the free speech of my comrades in arms, who have shed blood, lost friends, lost limbs, saved children who are not their own and sanctified the ground of Iraq with their blood, and the blood of their friends to ensure that these oxygen thieving, mouth breathing, Luddite, uninformed, hateful, wastes of skin can take time away from sipping their lattes and eating their organic fat-free muffins so they can skip class and go down and throw verbal excrement and physically assault better men and women than they could ever hope to be….
“It behooves every man to remember that the work of the critic is of altogether secondary importance, and that in the end, progress is accomplished by the man who does things.”
I will try to just keep saying that to myself…..
Retired Colonel Harry Riley, one of the founders of Eagles Up, sent a letter to the Edinboro Borough Manager, Taras (TJ) Jemetz, about this incident and was sent the following response:

We shall see. I’ll believe it when I see it. I’ve included his address if you’d also like to address this issue as an freedom-loving American.
The police returned their camera today and they are preparing their video report of the event. Please help send this to as many media folks as you know. Pass it along and share it on your blogs. If you’d like to contact Carrie or Jason about this incident, let me know offline. Once I get the video, I’ll post for all to see!
I’ve got an update to this on my military blog, A Soldier’s Perspective. You won’t believe your eyes!!
