Oh, really?

By way of my friend Peter, we learn that a bunch of moonbats out of Pittsburgh calling themselves Pittsburgh Organizing Group have announced the following:

"On Wednesday, March 19, POG will be holding a torch-lit march to a modern day castle of abominations—our local military recruiting station. If the station remains open, we intend to evict it and everything inside of it, occupy the location, and transform it into something useful for the community. We'll also be bringing a movable cage in which to confine military recruiters until they no longer pose a danger to our friends and neighbors."

Goodness.

The mind boggles.

On one paw, we have a pack of leftist neo-hippies, all proud and happy in their organic hemp clothing, patchouli scent wafting about like a particularly obnoxious smog, fists raised defiantly in their Jamba-Juice fueled outrage.

And on the other paw, we have several United States military recruiters, all graduates of various boot camp and advanced training -- and most with a tour or two of the current war-zones under their belts -- steel fangs politely hidden behind cool smiles and multiple graduate level degrees from the School Of People Who Want To Kill You.

*blink, blink*

Let me get this straight -- you hippie schmucks are going to put these guys in a cage?

Oh, hell -- let me get a large soda and some popcorn going; 'cause this ought to be fun to watch.

Most recruiters are not in fact veterans of current combat zones.

The 5th anniversary seems to be a full moon for the anti-military types. Michelle Malkin has a post of an unclassified memo warning of threats to military. I'm not sure how to leave a link here, but here is part of the memo.

"Subject: FW: SUBJECT: HQ USNORTHCOM FORCE PROTECTION ADVISORY 00002 (UNCLASSIFIED)

Classification: UNCLASSIFIED
Caveats: NONE

FYI

For your information. As the 5th anniversary of the Iraq war approaches, protest groups are increasing activity, some to include a direct threat to Recruiters, other Soldiers, others with DoD decals and their families. Areas of concern include Seattle and Tacoma, Washington; Pittsburgh; Washington, DC.; Chicago; Chapel Hill, NC; New York; Orlando and many locations in
California.

Mitigation recommendations include standard AT/FP precautions to include:

- Avoid known risks
- Remain vigilant
- Use the Buddy system
- Inspect vehicles
- Do not engage belligerents"

I would post the entire memo, but it's quite lengthy and thought it might be uncouth of me.

The rest of the memo can be seen at Michelle's site. For those who don't know it, the site address is:

Oh, they are just hot air. Especially once they find out what happens to them as soon as they lay hands on non-commissioned officers of the United States Armed Forces and interfere with performance of their assigned duties.

2/3 of my marine recruiters are veterans of the Iraq war. These guys would not have any trouble with smelly hippies.

The Word has one out that a group calling itself the SDS--unknown whether it bears any actual relationship to that SDS--is planning on shutting down the Recruiting station in the neighborhood of the Tacoma Mall this Saturday. All Active and Reserve personnel have been ordered to Stay Away.

They probably don't need to be there, anyway...

"patchouli scent wafting about like a particularly obnoxious smog"
But probably not as obnoxious as their natural scent...

"Most recruiters are not in fact veterans of current combat zones."

In a perfect world the Recruiters would be free to fully defend their selves and their positions (offices)with our desired outcome (piles of broken, bleeding, smelly hippies).
However their ROE demands they not hurt the citizens they are sworn to protect regardless of what said citizens are doing to them.
The cure for this is a dozen veterans showing up to do what the Active Duty Recruiters are forbidden to do.....

Save me a seat! My popcorn is still popping!

CrankyProf said...

Every Saturday, the hippies are out in force in West Chester -- "The Chester County Peace Movement!" is obnoxious. They wave signs, and shout slogans in to their megaphones, and harass passers-by.

Rather than engage verbally, I taught Carpet Shark to yell, "Take a bath, hippie!"

They actually scatter before his four-year-old wrath.

Joseph said...

Hmmm..I wonder how many state and federal felonies they would commit should they actually do this. Being willing to go to jail is far different from actually being incarcerated.
Don't they have jobs or something?

Matthew said...

As a military vet, I find this very appalling. I am ashamed that people would even think this. I hope they get what they deserve

Angry Professor said...

As a person of progressive political leanings, I also find these "movements" appalling. I detest hippies and the chaos that passes for "thinking" in a hippie brain.

Dregan said...

Here's a novel approach, if I were a recruiter so stationed. (a) Make sure that as many media snotjobs are on scene as possible, then when they try to 'storm the gates', (b) provide moderate, yet adequate resistance, and (c)scream my bloody head off when they throw mw in the cage. Eventually they'll have to let me out, even if it's not willingly.

(d)Call my CO and lawyer, then the police (if they aren't already there). Wrongful arrest or wrongful imprisonment (depending on your area) and maybe even kidnapping. Toss in a slew of terroristic threats and what else have you, all on the 6:00 news and it's buh-by, bitches.

I'd be willing to take on on the chin if it's shuts up and shuts down a group of asshats like that.

West, By God said...

Update from POG's site (http://www.organizepittsburgh.org/)

"And please, scary right wing, we already believe you that you want to shoot us and "kick hippies' asses," no need for the continual attempts to one-up each other with even worse threats of violence. See you at the recruiting station at 6:30pm on March 19 (that's 4712 Forbes. Ave in Pittsburgh)."

Wow. Methinks they are craving some lawsuit-worthy violence ala Phelps and his Westboro gang of cretins.

Regardless, read some of the tripe on their website... you WILL be astounded.

Ted said...

Seems like there's enough to arrest these freaks already: terrorist threats, conspiracy to kidnap, etc.

Wish I could be there to enjoy the show...here's hoping that video footage is posted.

Dano said...

Might actually have to go down there and watch 'em get arrested.

Since it is a US Military Recruitment place isn't it considered Federal property? And any crimes committed on the property would then fall under Federal jurisdiction...

Wonder if anyone has told 'em.

I'm not sure I support the war in Iraq (the title "Operation Iraqi Freedom" is SUCH a transparent attempt manipulate the public's minds). Actually, I'm not sure what else could or should have been done, but I do know that we're in a war we can't win, and within a decade of our leaving that area, scarcely a dent of our presence will remain in the political arena-and I mourn the loss of life.
BUT, before everyone goes apeshit-no matter whether we approve of the war or not, we owe our military people respect and support. They have answered the call of their Commander in Chief with their lives, and no one has the right to denigrate them in any way.
I personally would like to be in Pitty with a shotgun and some Hi-Life.

Damn! I wish I was in Pittsburgh, as I would come to the defense of the recruiting station by kicking MANY hippies' asses!

I encourage the left to start some violence, that way some of us loyal citizens can give it right back to them. They'll wish they had kept their mouths shut.

To all those who've said they'd like to be there: that's precisely what I've proposed in my blog post about this (to which Lawdog linked in his post). I'd love to see a crowd of veterans (who aren't subject to politically correct military discipline) show these @#$% %#@#% #@@##$#@#$ how we feel.

Thanks for the linky love, Lawdog. Appreciate you spreading the word.

Man, talk about your over reaching.

D.W. Drang said...

I just remembered that Tacoma, WA, is--or was--the site of a pilot program in which the Army hired retired NCOs to work as rcruiters. (I met the CO of the Recruting Command Company in Tacoma while volunteering at the SeaTac USO and he tried to hire me.)
Maybe tomorrow's rodeo in Tacoma is going to be even more interesting than I thought. Too bad I have to work...

One part of me - no doubt the war mongering valkyrie part (how do I know that's what I am? A prof two years ago informed me of this while I was attending a class at Kent state. I had said my father was a marine... and so far in my life I had never seen him rip babies apart for fun and profit. I immedietly became one of "them". I mean, yeah, I am, but still! lol) would love to see the nits get a large dose of reality measured out in a bit of a beatdown...

Butthe scary thing is - for the most part these guys aren't allowed to fight civs. I'm just seeing a reaaaaaally ugly situation where some of our guys and gals are gonna get hurt.

If a nutjob knows you aren't allowed to shoot/hit/break him, it gives him a lot of false bravery to go as far as they can. If the recruiters act, they'll be cruscified - if they don't, they're gonna get hurt.

See you at the recruiting station at 6:30pm on March 19 (that's 4712 Forbes. Ave in Pittsburgh).

I can't speak for certain where Pittsburgh is concerned, but in my neck of the woods (NC), the Recruiting Station closes at 5:00, just like any other government office. The @$$hats probably know this, and planned their little adventure for after hours so they can say that the Military "chickened out".

Quote Anonymous: "Most recruiters are not in fact veterans of current combat zones."

You have no idea what you're talking about. Most recruiters are veterans of current (or past) combat zones.

The majority of recruiters are "detailed recruiters". Meaning, this person is an NCO in the military with several years of service. The average rank of recruiters is SSG E-6. The lowest rank you can be a recruiter as is Corporal, on the Corporal Recruiter Program.

As most of these NCOs have years of service under their belt, you hardly find any who have not been deployed for OIF, OEF, or missions previous to this.

Quote Jenna: "But the scary thing is - for the most part these guys aren't allowed to fight civs."

They won't have to. Recruiting stations have a contingency plan for situations like this. If they are aware of a threat, the office will most likely be closed that day and the recruiters will be nowhere near it.

Also, since this was publicly announced, there will be a police presence preventing vandalism to the station and, hopefully, arresting people who come ready to burn, loot, and pillage as these trust-fund anarchists love to do.

Quote Morningglory: "in my neck of the woods (NC), the Recruiting Station closes at 5:00, just like any other government office."

I can assure you that this is an exception, not a rule.

Recruiting stations only get to close at specific times if they make mission and are "over producing", meaning they're enlisting more people than they're supposed to.

In most parts of the country, particularly inner city areas like Pittsburgh and the Washington, DC area, a normal recruiter's work week looks more like 7am through 9pm (or later), 6 days a week.

Assrot said...

Yeah, I'm interested in seeing that myself. I already know the outcome but the game will be fun to watch.

Maybe the stench from the hippies will drive the recruiters into the cage.

Gotdam traitorous f&%^* hippies. I say round them up and send them to Cuba or some other third world country where they can sit by the fire and sing Kumbaya.

Lawmom,

Take up the White Man's burden --
The savage wars of peace --
Fill full the mouth of Famine
And bid the sickness cease;
And when your goal is nearest
The end for others sought,
Watch Sloth and heathen Folly
Bring all your hope to nought.


I'd also point out that the impression that this is unwinnable is being fostered by the same folks who said the initial invasion would be a bloodbath for us. You think our guys have it bad, you should see the documents we're capturing from Al Queda In Iraq. We've got their dangly-bits in a hydraulic press. The surge & Petraeus' strategies are having a real & positive effect there. Just because the press isn't reporting it, does not mean that progress isn't being made.

Just don't ever accuse the Left of not supporting the military. Remember, they love, support and respect the troupes just as much as the rest of us.

Excuse me, cyberludite, but I find your reasoning emotional, specious, and shallow. Just how many years have you lived among Moslems, in their countries, observing their customs and religion? Have you read the Quran? How many of their languages do you speak?
Islam is a religion which should be respected in more ways than one, and formerly, that is, up until about the last 40 years, apart from jihads and their unending conflict with the Israelis, that was an extremely tolerant religion.
Islam pervades every aspect of its adherents' lives. We need to be very aware of that, and that it will continue to do so. The child giving flowers and taking candy from an American soldier today is the one who try to kill him the next, make no mistake.
As a for instance, Dog and his brother were baby-sat by one Abdullah, who coddled them, protected them, fed them, brought them gifts, and then one day, pointed to Dog and said, "I should kill him now before he grows up and kills me."
Never, never imagine that because people look like us-that is, Occidental-perhaps speak our language, and are friendly that they think like we do.
If you think 'winning' in Iraq will stop Moslem terrorism in the States-and wasn't that the purpose of this whole thing (at least for publication)? To retaliate and stop such acts as WTC, the Pentagon, Pennsylvania?-you are very naive.
Any war with the Arab countries has every possibility of becoming a desert Viet Nam. We can't kill them all.
However, none of that means we shouldn't support our military. We should. I still think Jane Fonda should have been hung from the nearest yardarm, myself, and I view the 'hippie' reaction to that war as shameful. Our military deserves far better than that. There are other ways to oppose the war in Iraq, but don't take it out on the men and women who are doing their duty and who believe in their cause. They deserve our loyalty and admiration.

Pot, kettle

Read the Quran? Check
Speak one or more of their languages? Check.

Islam is a religion which should be respected in more ways than one, and formerly, that is, up until about the last 40 years, apart from jihads and their unending conflict with the Israelis,

America has been at war with militant Islam since at least 1804. Or do you not know what the "Shores of Tripoli" refer to in the Marine Hymn? What you say is ignorant of history and culture. Islam is a religion founded in violence and sustained in injustice, anti-semitism, racism, and the oppression of women.

that was an extremely tolerant religion.

WHOOP WHOOP WHOOP WHOOP WHOOP my bullshit detector just went off.

Islam pervades every aspect of its adherents' lives.

WHOOP WHOOP WHOOP WHOOP

We need to be very aware of that, and that it will continue to do so.

I'm gonna have to buy new batteries for that thing.

The child giving flowers and taking candy from an American soldier today is the one who try to kill him the next, make no mistake.

WHOOP WHOOP WHOOP WHOOP.......

So we should FEAR that child? If he tries to kill an American, I can only pray that this happens in an area where there is a generous ROE, and said child him/herself gets to go to Allah real fast.

As a for instance, Dog and his brother were baby-sat by one Abdullah, who coddled them, protected them, fed them, brought them gifts, and then one day, pointed to Dog and said, "I should kill him now before he grows up and kills me."

You evince a poor choice of child care providers.

Never, never imagine that because people look like us-that is, Occidental-perhaps speak our language, and are friendly that they think like we do.

Many of us long ago shed our innocence. It looks like you have yet to.

If you think 'winning' in Iraq will stop Moslem terrorism in the States-and wasn't that the purpose of this whole thing (at least for publication)? To retaliate and stop such acts as WTC, the Pentagon, Pennsylvania?-you are very naive.

Your ignorance is astounding.

Any war with the Arab countries has every possibility of becoming a desert Viet Nam. We can't kill them all.

As a matter of fact, we CAN kill them all. We choose not to.

However, none of that means we shouldn't support our military. We should. I still think Jane Fonda should have been hung from the nearest yardarm, myself, and I view the 'hippie' reaction to that war as shameful. Our military deserves far better than that. There are other ways to oppose the war in Iraq, but don't take it out on the men and women who are doing their duty and who believe in their cause. They deserve our loyalty and admiration.

This last graph is the only thing you've posted that makes any sense what soever.

No sir; We haven't won....It just means their moving to the relative safety of an educational facility means the battlefield has shifted to their "Turf". As evidenced at the National Labor College, IVAW & VVAW have full support of US Labor Unions & were quick to utilize the safety of the NLC to conduct their propaganda event which failed....Did you know the testifiers were agast with astonishment that they were given real ammunition to fire??

*gasp, oh gasp*

In order to defeat them as was proven at NLC, the battle needs to be taken to them on their "safe turf". Our educational systems are a fertile breeding ground for leftwing teachers & professors.
