THESE COLORS DON'T RUN
By Judi McLeod
Monday, February 19, 2007
Even as the anti-war movement is setting the stage for the mother of all protests next month, Melanie Morgan is turning it around to a nation-wide show of support for American troops.
"Move America Forward is about to launch a major advertising campaign to rally support for our troops in Iraq." (www.melaniemorganrocks.com).
"On Saturday, March 17th, Cindy Sheehan, Jane Fonda and Ramsey Clark will lead a giant anti-war protest in Washington, D.C.--disgracing the war memorials there as they march to the Pentagon...
This is how Move America Forward intends to trump all this negativity and disrespect towards our troops: "With a positive and patriotic national effort titled, 'THESE COLORS DON'T RUN.'"
MAF will lead a national caravan of vehicles and supporters from California across the nation, all the way to Washington, D.C. Heading up the caravan will be real people, Gold Star parents who lost a child in the war on terrorism, Blue Star parents...,(and) veterans of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom.
At each stop along the way, the MAF caravan will stop to conduct a patriotic pro-troop rally where they were be collecting American flags from rally participants.
"At each rally we will collect the flags and pack them in the trucks in our caravan and then bring them to Washington, D.C. where we will surround these war memorials in a giant sea of red, white and blue--and where we will conduct our final and largest pro-troop rally in Washington D.C.-on March 17th...
You can follow Melanie Morgan's caravan starting today by checking on the posted planned route and stops along the way at the Move America Forward website.

Just look at the flags shown at these anti-war rallies, and you'll see who supports a defeat for America...
Will read later. I think "A Gathering of Eagles" is a wonderful idea, but can't find anywhere on their website, last time I looked, to contribute, since I can't be there in person. I'll keep checking.
Excuse my last post. I checked again, and there is a donation site.
Who originally put together the March 17th event?
Cindy Sheehan, Jane Fonda AND Ramsey Clark?
Karl Rove set up this event, I'm convinced.
It's my pleasure to be able to support something I believe in. I contributed to Diane Irey's campaign last year for the same reason, even though I live in California.
It came together with a combination of veterans groups and the D.C. chapter of Free Republic.Freepers kristinn and Just A Nobody can give you more detail.
Your interest is appreciated.
I remember that, I was one of the volunteers for her campaign. I posted alot of the Irey threads.
Well, now it's a MAF event.
If you are on any lists that the military read or frequent any such blogs, please let them know about this site:
Please spread the word.
If you are truly interested in the answer to this question, you can follow the progression of the chain of events in the update I posted last night HERE!
The original threads are posted under IN THE BEGINNING with dates and post times. This is a national effort that all Americans concerned about their country are proudly joining.
Start at the beginning and click on all the links contained within the thread. Seek and you shall find.
Thanks for the ping smooth.
WooHoo!!! Give Mrs. Smooth a big ol' hug for me! You are now added to the list! ;*)
"THESE COLORS DON'T RUN" - national patriotic caravan crosses the nation - joining up with "The Gathering of Eagles" PING! Hope to see you all on the road :)
And if you're thinking, "Gee I wish I could go, but it's a long drive for me to make by myself," check the state message boards - maybe there are some people in your area looking for riders to share gas costs, or maybe just to keep 'em awake on the drive.
