Posted on 08/20/2005 6:59:33 PM PDT by Crackingham
Salt Lake City's Mayor Rocky Anderson used e-mail this week to call for "the biggest demonstration this state has ever seen," when President Bush appears before a national veterans convention Monday. Anderson says Bush policies are disastrous for the country and that to stay quiet during the president's visit would be send a message of apathy.
The mayor's e-mail called for a collaboration of health care advocates, seniors, gay and lesbian advocates, anti-Patriot advocates, civil libertarians and anti-war folks to protest outside the convention of the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
Mike Parkin, senior vice commander of the V-F-W's Atomic Post 4355 in Salt Lake says the move makes Anderson look unpatriotic.
The Vietnam vet, who says he voted for Anderson, but won't again, says the protest will offend veterans and embolden enemies of the U.S.
Ya know, I wonder if the good mayor used a city computer to
do this, in some states that's against the law!
The mayor needs to go.
Perhaps the mayor of Salt Lake would prefer that Muslim mullahs deal out justice and make the rules in the US, including Utah? Out of his mind. The Loony Left at its worst.
Did the LIBBIE Mayor use the City Email system to do this? If so then it's wrong; Toss his butt in the trash.
You forgot the union folk, Rocky.
This event must be given a full Utah FReep.
Just for the hell of it, please post a list of the great works of this person.
What a lefty loon.
Mr. Mayor? The President would like to see you. (Make sure it's on video, preferrably without the idiot mayor noticing)
I'm glad Salt Lake City doesn't have its own congressional district.
Yeah, I'm sure Mayor McCheese here will get all of 5 people to show up to his treason fest in a conservative state like Utah. Grow up Rocky. This president has grown the economy and kept America protected since 9-11. What have you ever done for the country besides betray it?
I am not Mormon, but have several family members in Utah who are. (they haven't converted me yet) They are wondering, as I am, what the Heck is going on with the mayor of Salt Lake City?
I guess I figured SLC was conservative, like the rest of UT. Maybe I'm wrong. How did this America hating lefty get elected there??
This country is full of politcal, self-serving ingrates. These limosine-jerks need to be taken out behind the barn and tough a lesson in patriotism, what this country is all about, and THEN taken over Iran and thrown out in a chute, to fight their way back to the country they snivel, whine about and denegrate at every turn.
This P---K needs the full treatement along with the scum appears to support.
he has 3 and a half more years to protest hahaha
How the heck did this crowd ever get together? Did they wash the walls down afterwords?
