Not This Time

Not This Time (poem about Gathering of Eagles)

written by .......E.M. Cooper, USMC 3/1/07

They gathered in the 60s And Ol' Glory burned and tore With all their hollow slogans such as "Let's make love, not war."

They took for granted freedoms Struggled for in every clime. But as their sequel gathers steam We're saying "Not this time."

Peaceniks still don't grasp the irony As they demand free speech. Atop soapboxes, with bullhorns They curse and mock and preach.

And in our country that's their right 'Twas earned in blood and grime. Secured by men they tried to shame But not now, not this time.

Perhaps someone can tell me why When marching on for "peace" These protesters bring cans of paint And beat upon police?

Their anti-war activities Bought and paid by foreign dime, They used to go unchallenged, But we promise - not this time.

They assaulted soldiers coming home With curse words, spit and worse. All done, it's claimed, in search of peace No matter how perverse.

With Fonda, Kerry, Ramsey Clark, And others past their prime, They hope to relive "glory" days. But hold on, not this time.

Their signs laced with profanity, With swastikas and threats. Parading by with coffins Showing no signs of regret.

Demonstrating outside hospitals With signs like "Maimed for Lies." Well, free speech is a two-way street You've got company this time.

Outside the Capitol, perhaps Is where these types belong. But treading on such sacred ground Is insolent and wrong.

They won't disturb memorials, Or other spots sublime. They've damaged several in the past, But trust me, not this time.

So on March 17th around The Wall we will be lined. Ensuring reverence does prevail, No monuments maligned.

We'll peacefully assemble, And we'll tolerate no crime. Forty years ago they marched alone, Forget it - not this time.

Thank you!
My spirit is with you, Gathering of Eagles as are many of my friends here in Nebraska!
If they want free speech, we get it too!

I will try to attend the Move America Forward Caravan when it comes thru Dallas Monday on it's way to the 17 Mar Gathering of Eagles at the Vietnam Memorial. I have already made a donation to the GOE so maybe another veteran can attend our counter rally to the anti-war shitstains.

The Washington D.C. liberal police sympathizers are the ones that will just sit back and appease the Demlibloonies, pacifists, peacenikkers, Woodstock Retreads, Pelosi Pussies, General Betrayus Murthaites, etc.... and do nothing! Their former D.C. Mayor smoked crack on duty, and mark my words - the pro-Democratic DNC D.C. police will sit back and do nothing. IF violence breaks out - they'll respond by arresting the conservative defenders first, wait and see. I hope that the D.C. FOX News bureau's cameras will be positioned to pick up the whole nine yards and be our eyes and ears.

E.M. Cooper ~ You do have company this time round! And lots of it!
I was able to get to 2 rallies here in CA. (I posted my pics at my place.) And yes, the media was there! Move On America has the first list of media coverage. There are videos. Wooo hoo!
It was awesome! Deborah Johns (the Blue Star Mom) was wonderful as she spoke to the press. Scott Conover was terrific when he found his son's name on one of the crosses in Lafayette. We had his back.
Geez, it was soooo good to hang out with some positive America and troop lovin' folks.
The Wall will not be damaged in any way ~ not with these Vets! I'm just sorry I couldn't go the whole way. Physically, that is. There are going to be scads of hearts and spirits there, too.
