I'm heading downtown right now - heard an oddball report on the WLS-AM 8:00 am news about an "anti-war" rally at noon also at Dearborn and Adams. Hmmm ....

Saw that on local news too - hastily scheduled and rumored non-permitted. Coincidence?

Field Report!

GRRRRR called in.

All set up in Federal Plaza. 8 to 10 FReepers on hand including chicagolady and RedWing9. Digital photo's and video are being shot for later posting.

About 25 members of the motorcycle club Rolling Thunder, fully decked out and with flags circled the block and parked near our group.

Watch CLTV if you get it. They've been running an interview with RedWing9 at the top of the hour all morning!

Wish I could be there, but am stuck at home in western suburbs. This Proud Marine Mom, though, is keeping in touch with ears glued to WLS and eyes stuck on Free Republic. Thank you all who are there.

I just spoke to RW9 on the phone to tell him that the rally was on CNN and the reporter, although in excruciating pain, admitted that there were more people at the Pro-America than at the leftie sob fest!!!!

Rats! We missed that. There's been quite a bit of coverage on CLTV but we hadn't much of anything on the "majors".

Bump from the NW side, my heart is with all of you. Sitting home infuriated watching all the coverage on the 'anti' protests, keep checking CLTV and will again at the top of the hour. Stay safe!!! God knows what the goons plans are to disrupt today!

Great sign

Please which was RedWing? CLTV covered this rally favorably, kept stressing we far outweighed the "Antis"...showed the DMZ cordoned off but the Antis and the Rally. I intend to call every news station and radio today and thank or yell at them depending how they treated us!!! Again, Chicago Freepers Yahoo!!! Can't wait for the reports!

CLTV just ran a piece on the rally showing the disproportionate turn-out for our guys. Of course they had to find one fairly heated confrontation between (I'm guessing) a Mom with a child in the service and a bunch of anti's. They then interviewed her, a couple more supporters and then one anti.

All in all, not too bad coverage.
