Freeper Doctor Raoul Has Died
Raouls Family | 3/25/2013 | Abner

Posted on 03/25/2013 10:08:35 AM PDT by abner

Doctor Raoul died Saturday of a rare form of cancer. He was 58.

Raoul's family contacted us this morning to see if they could find out more about his activities as an activist.

This is such a shock. His family is looking for photos and stories about him.

He is and always will be a Free Republic icon.

He kind of fell off the face of the earth about 2 or 3 years ago now. All attempts we made to reach him failed.

If you have photos please contact me. Please feel free to post stories and I will make sure the family sees this thread.

Oh no!

I met him in front of the White House on a Sat. morning during the Clinton years. He was awesome!

Wasn’t he one of the guys in jail stripes who followed Gore around during the 2000 campaign? He aappeared at Hillary rallies too, as I remember.

And wasn’t he one of the FReepers in prison stripes wearing either a Clinton, or a Gore, mask who cavorted to Huckabee’s Jail House Rock at the 2001 Inaugural Ball? (to everyone’s great glee) And who tossed the stand up cut out of Clinton out into the snow from the 2nd story to the tune of “Hit the Road Jack” at the end of the evening?

I don’t know who was in the masks, but I thought it was Kristinn and Dr. Raoul at the time.

May he RIP and his family find comfort and peace too.

I remember so often seeing his posts, although I'm not sure if we ever spoke.

Seeing so many FReepers recalling him and what he contributed to this site is wonderful. I wish that there was some way to contact his family and let them know.

"Back in 1999 and 2000, I had the privilege of standing with him and other DC Chapter members at the White House on Saturdays protesting Bill Clinton"...

I met Doctor Raoul during one of the DC Chapter's Saturday morning protests of Clinton at the WH...he was very helpful in getting directions PM'd to me as concerned exits to take off the main interstate and parking around the WH...I always enjoyed his additions to the after action reports of those Saturday morning protests...he was indeed a great patriot and prayers go up for him and his family...

I apologize for my last post. I just finished reading the entire first post and his family does know. I was so shocked to hear this sad news that I simply stopped reading.

Thank goodness that his family will be able to read this thread, and will know how much Doctor Raoul was loved and respected.

Oh this is just wrong. Doc wasn’t that old!

I was wondering why I hadn’t seen him in ages, now I know why.

Salut, Doc, I’ll remember you tonight.

I remember Hillary talking about him on the Tonight Show. She lied of course....

Something about a guy following her around with a devil suit on, and that he didn’t carry a sign or anything...

She specifically said he didn’t carry a sign!

I have so many stories I don’t know which ones to tell, but his family should know that he made history when Hillary mentioned him during her Senate campaign.

He would appear everywhere Hillary was, dressed in a devil costume, holding a big sign that said “Bill Clinton married my sister.” Hillary said there was a devil who followed her around everywhere but she lied and said she had no idea what that meant.
