Protest Warrior Kicks Leftist Butt in DC

Protest Warrior Crashes Anti-War Rally in DC—Dupes the Leftists The group of 20 or so gathered outside the Washington Monument, awaiting their instructions. I told them it wouldn’t be long before we would start moving. I could sense their nervousness, and their excitement. For most of these guys, this was their first time crashing an anti-war protest. I recently was selected to lead the Washington, D.C. chapter of Protest Warrior, an organization founded on the tactic of protesting the protestors. This was my first event as chapter leader, and my members proved to be fiery and somewhat courageous. The Left had gathered over 50.000 anti-war activists, which included communists, socialists, anarchists and other assorted revolutionaries. Protest Warrior decided to confront these Leftists with signs that mocked them. One sign read, “Except for ending slavery, fascism, nazism and communism, War has never solved anything…” Another read, “Communism has only killed 100 million people, Let’s give it another chance.!” To say our group was outnumbered would be a vast understatement. We had 40 at the most, and they had enough to fill a major sports stadium. The first tactic was to infiltrate the Leftists on their turf, and to confront them on their political philosophy. Immediately upon arrival, the Leftists began shouting at my group, calling us “racist bigots” and “anti-gay.” Funny, no one on our side was hurling racial epithets or talking about sexuality. Nevertheless, the slogan sounded good to them, so they continued to issue their tirade. The Leftists must have known we were coming, because they did a wonderful job slowly pushing us out of their rally. They never really shoved too hard, or struck us, but they did inch us out across the street and up the sidewalk for a few hundred yards. My group stuck together and tried to avoid physical confrontation as much as possible. We did a good job in my estimation. As we were forced out, the Leftists shouted, “Whose streets? Our Streets!” We were more than willing to oblige them, since they outnumbered us by the thousands. Our next modus operandi was to use their own march against them. We gathered some intel on their parade route and found that they would be coming down Pennsylvania Ave. toward the Capitol. Now, we knew that we had hundreds of supporters lined up in front of the FBI building, and that if we could just play our cards right, we could outsmart the Leftists and make them look foolish. So, we did just that. My group of now 30 or so gathered at 13th and Pennsylvania, symbolically in front of the Reagan Building, and waited for the Leftists to approach. We scattered our group out in smaller groups and placed them on all four sides of the intersection. As the Leftists came within 50 yards of us, we all ran out into the middle of the street, right in front of their parade! We faced toward the Capitol and began to march, chanting “U.S.A. U.S.A.” The Leftists behind us had no idea what our signs said. In fact, at first they thought that we were with them! Even people on the sidewalks seemed perplexed when they began to read our sarcastic signs. Here we were, a Pro-Troops group, walking right in front of the Leftists, as media cameras flashed and television cameras rolled. Our planning had paid huge dividends. As we approached the Pro-Troops groups lined along Pennsylvania and 7th, we became louder. At first, they shouted at us, thinking we were with the Leftists. But once they realized what had just happened, they erupted in cheers and laughter. Protest Warrior had pulled a fast one on A.N.S.W.E.R., which angered them very much. The Leftists actually stopped twice to see if we would leave their parade route, but we stopped with them, turned, and faced them down. It was quite a spectacle on the streets of Washington, D.C. that night. Although Leftists broke the will of the American people and troops during Vietnam, the so-called “Silent Majority” had never actually tried to protest them. But, during the course of the current war, pro-troops groups like Protest Warrior have been stealing pages out of the playbook of the Leftists, and crashing their events to express our “dissent.” Saturday was one of the largest anti-war rallies since Vietnam, and the whole world was watching. But this time, the “Silent Majority” of decent Americans showed up to expose the Leftists, and to take away some of their steam. Such organizations are only growing in number, and never again will a large anti-war, anti-capitalism rally go unanswered. Those days are long gone. The new era of Protest Warrior, whose motto is, “Fighting the Left, and Doing it Right,” has begun. And there is nothing the Left can do.

What an awesome day it was, despite the littering, gas guzzling hippies who trashed DC with their presence.
