Operation Not in Our Name - Hurricane Katrina

Anti-war protesters are users. It seems that is the only way they get their message across. Mutha Sheehan disparages the memory of her son, Casey who believed in his mission. Code Pinkos use military hospitals for their protests. What kind of mind does it take to protest the war in front of a hospital that contains our brave wounded?

The latest outrage is the Veterans for Peace Gulfmarch. It starts in Mobile AL on March 14 goes through the devastated Mississippi Gulf Coast and will end up in New Orleans on March 19.

This is a slap in the face to me. As a survivor of Hurricane Katrina in Gulfport Mississippi, I resent their presence. As the leader of the South Mississippi Protest Warriors, I am organizing a counter-protest called Not in Our Name - Hurricane Katrina.

The reasons are many. I support the mission of our troops in the Global War on Terror. I also resent a group trying to use our grief and pain to end the GWOT. Also, the members of the Marines, Seabees, and the Air Force base have done so much to help out after Katrina. It is a slap in their faces for this march to be held. Without the members of the Air and Army National Guard, the Coast Guard, the Marines, the Seabees, and the Air Force service men and women, the Mississippi Coast would not be so far ahead in our rebuilding efforts.

To show our support for them, I urge you to join us. You don not have to become a member of Protest Warriors, just show your support for the military men and women who so faithfully serve the defense of our country and who help out so tremendously in times such as Hurricane Katrina. Please e-mail me at navarone1978 at hotmail dot com if you would like more information on joining in our true support of the troops.

UPDATE: There are some readers who want to help out but are unable to make the counter-protest. I am going to make two suggestions. The first is a good way to show support for our troops and make a donation to Soldiers Angels.

To help the citizens of Mississippi, I am going to suggest a donation to the Salvation Army. You can specify which city you would like it to go to. The following cities suffered anywhere from 65% to 100% damage: Waveland, St. Martin, D'Iberville, or Long Beach. Waveland and St Martin are two small towns that basically do not exist anymore.

The Veterans for Peace Gulfmarch is not going to help us on the Mississippi Gulf Coast or our soldiers. They are just trying to cash in on the destruction that is down here.

Seawitch - I thought you meant some other kind of support. No, I can't make it, but if there's anything I can do from here, I will gladly help.

mark, felis, & patrick,

I wish y'all could be here. There is one way you can support for our troops. Just click on the Soldier's Angels button on my sidebar.

Or if you would like the help the victim's of Hurricane Katrina, you can go to the Salvation Army web-site and specify which city you would like to help. My suggestions would be D'Iberville, Waveland, St. Martin, or Long Beach. These are the Mississippi cities in which the destruction ranged from 65% to 100% of the city.

Seawich.......I can't join you because I'm in another part of the country. However, I just wanted to say "Thank You So Much" for what you are doing. You and your troops mean a lot to the men and women on active duty now. And you even mentioned the Seabees.....I'm a retired Master Chief Seabee.

Keep up the good work and give snaggy cindy hell for us all over at Sweetness and Light. She is our favorite target for what she has done to her Fallen Hero Son, Casey's Legacy.

Warmonger infidel,

Thanks for your support. The Seabees hold a special place in my heart. My Dad was one.

I'm coping your comment over to blogger. No one who sees the main page can see haloscan comments.
