MoveOn descends on Garner, NC

MoveOn.Org had a little meeting here in Garner, NC last night. They gathered 50 activists and would be activists for an apparent training session. I heard about it on a local blog and thought I’d show up. Here’s the photos of the activists that stayed outside the library with signs.
Here’s the whole group

I had to look up Art Pope. He’s apparently the Raleigh version of the Koch brothers.
Note the big, friendly smile. Good for her. Just because you want to send gun toting government agents to rob rich people to satisfy your jealousy doesn’t mean you have to scowl at people.
I wanted to ask this little girl what her sign meant, but I have a policy of not involving children in adult political discussions. It isn’t fair to ask them to defend their parents’ political beliefs. I did, however, look it up and military spending was 20% of the Federal budget for 2010. Education is a State and local issue, not a federal one.
I thought that this sign was creative. Wrong and stupid, but creative.


I met a few fun people, and will definately be going to more of these counterprotests. I even learned something. Apparently desiring a Federal government that is limited in its powers by the Constitution is incompatible with being a Christian. I’m not sure how it is incompatible, or why I am required to care even if it were true, but Hans and I were told that.

  1. I must give credit for them hand-making their signs certainly does show some grassroots support over the usual “George Soros told me to stand here and hold this” or “The Union is Paying me to hold this sign and chant”.

    That being said she’s against Art Pope, and the Koch brothers…but OK being associated with Soros?

    Good to see them mustering numbers in the tens.

    They fail – it is not only COMPATIBLE but PREFERRED (yes – I am an evangelical, Bible-thumping, born again Christian.)

  3. Thanks for posting this. Unfortunately, I already had another commitment for the same Time Slot.

    Keep up the ‘Patriotic Fight’ and just FYI, I took the liberty to link to your blog site here.
