Gathering of Eagles at Times Square
The Gathering of Eagles (GOE) called for patriotic citizens to show support for the military recruiting center in Times Square, New York, which was bombed Thursday in an act of domestic terrorism, apparently perpetrated by protestors who want the insurgents to win in Iraq. The GOE demonstrated Saturday in Times Square from noon to four PM to support the military recruiters under threat of violence there.
Chris Hill, GOE National Director of Operations, says of the military recruiters in Times Square:
"It is important for them to know we love and respect them, and will stand with them always. New York City has, once again, been the victim of terrorism; this time of the homegrown brand it appears. This despicable act can be laid right at the feet of the vehement anti-American groups we have countered so often. They have made it okay in the minds of some to attack recruiter stations and deface our war memorials. We must not allow this to continue! I have contacted law enforcement agencies in several of the cities where recruiter stations have been previously targeted. They assure me that security has been stepped up. Respectfully, that is not enough. We must show support publicly and proudly for our brothers and sisters in uniform. This is our line in the sand. This nonsense will stop. I look forward to standing with you all again and appreciate your unqualified support. I love New York."
Conservative Propaganda dispatched Celtic Chick, our most able correspondent in the Big Apple, to cover the action, which was especially soggy, and take these photos. Her first reports were that the weather was "TOTALLY LOUSY... It has been raining cats and dogs all day, chilly and windy."
However, neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night stays these patriots from the swift support of their local military recruiting center when it has been bombed by idiots. Celtic Chick says the damage had been completely repaired and was unnoticeable by the time she arrived. Outstanding.
Terrorism will not be tolerated, at least not by the troop supporters. For the feral anti-victory Left, it's another story.
Celtic Chick delivered a plate of chocolate chip cookies to the recruiters on duty. I was gonna talk to her about maintaining journalistic objectivity but then I remembered we don't have any. This is Conservative Propaganda. We're for the US military and for winning in Iraq and beating the insurgents to a bloody pulp. In the time-honored tradition of the US military, the recruiters on duty thanked the Celtic Chick for the cookies and then fell upon them like ravenous wolves, chowing down like they hadn't eaten all week.
Plenty of passing cars honked in appreciation of the GOE flag-wavers taking back Times Square for America. Nobody likes IEDs being laid at the door of the military recruiting center nor the people who place them there. On that, we are all agreed. New York, appropriately enough, is against terror. What did this idiot bomber think he would accomplish by perpetrating a terrorist act in New York? Did he think after Sep 11 that New York would just roll over and give in to his tiny terror? Who does this weenie bomber think New Yorkers are?
