This Is How Americans Support Freedom And The Troops?

I'm not surprised that I didn't hear about this story until now. It wasn't until I did my daily surfing of blogs that I came upon this story on Who Hijacked Our Country. Why would we hear about it? After all, it's only the things that anti-war people do that gets coverage. But when pro-war pigs beat a grieving father of a deceased soldier, all we get is ...SILENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The People Who Assaulted a Gold Star Father on September 15th

Here are photos of members of "Gathering of Eagles" who assaulted gold star father Carlos Arredondo in broad daylight in Washington, D.C., on September 15, 2007, throwing him to the ground and kicking him.

Account of what happened from Arredondo's wife Mélida Arredondo:

Carlos Arredondo, 47 year old father of two sons, arrived in the nation's capitol on Monday, 09/10/07 to share a memorial he has made to honor for his eldest son, Alex. Carlos has visited thirty of the United States with the traveling memorial to his son Alexander. Lcpl. Alexander S. Arredondo, USMC was killed on 08/25/04. He was 20 years and 20 days old. The memorial consists of a casket, poster- size photographs of Alex when he graduated from boot camp, before his second tour in Iraq, lying in state at his wake, and a photo of Alex with his younger brother Brian.

Saturday, September 15, 2007 consisted of first a rally, a march towards the capitol and then a die-in. Carlos pulled the memorial along the march route approaching the rotunda near the capitol building. Several of the marchers requested for him to speak about the memorial where a crowd gathered around him. After finishing, several people walked with Carlos as he pulled the memorial. Several pictures of Alex dressed in his blues were attached to the display.

As Carlos passed counter protesters, one man ripped a picture of Alex from the memorial. Carlos leaped on the man to retrieve the picture. It was at that point that approximately five others all began to attack Carlos by kicking him in the head, legs, stomach and back.

The Capitol police bicycle patrol then appeared to break up the fight. Several officers including a female officer were engaged in breaking up the fight and were able to stop any further injuries from occurring. Hannah Jones who was walking with Carlos was also assaulted.

A bystander named Ramesh witnessed the whole encounter and also retrieved the picture of Alex for Carlos. He was quite distressed at how he watched the men follow Carlos as he pulled the memorial, purposefully yelling epiphets and eventually taking Alex's photograph. Soon, an ambulance showed up as well as many concerned activists. The paramedics provided first aid to Carlos but he did not seek further medical attention. Carlos sustained bloody cuts on his shins. He also reported bruises all over his torso and head where he was kicked.

Like Tom pointed out over at Who Hijacked Our Country, nothing you could ever dream up to call these pigs would ever truly do the situation justice.

This is how these filthy motherfuckers support freedom and our troops? This is how they treat the father of a soldier who died so that their filthy, disgusting asses could live?

They need to be locked up for life!! There is no place in society for these pigs!! Take a long, hard look at the photos. If you know them, give Carlos and his deceased son some justice by calling police and turning these pigs in.

To all of you assholes who are bound to leave a comment defending these pigs, bring it on bitches!! I'm ready!!

    Thanks for the mention and for posting about this. That assault by "eagles" was one of the sickest lowest things I've ever heard of.

    Gathering of Eagles went around to start trouble as their intention for being there.

    Their numbers were small considering all the conservative blogs talk of said march.

    This was just brutal and without any sense!

    What's that about Britney and OJ and Tyson? I can't imagine this has even been hinted at on any of the major news channels. Now, if us moonbats had done the same, they'd be demanding that Hillary be charged with treason and that we have to return our monthly checks from Soros.

    Let's Talk, it makes perfect sense to them in their microscopic brains. Well, that's assuming that they have brains. That's open for debate.

    If you haven't read what they had to say, these pigs actually tried to justify their actions by using the deceased soldier.

    Disgusting doesn't even begin to describe what they did!!

    Welcome Randal!! Don't be a stranger!!

    The RePUKElicans like to claim that it's a "liberal" media. Yeah, well if it's such a liberal media and all the liberals like to bash RePUKElicans, how come not a single news channel has said even one iota about this man being beaten? Oh wait, it's not a liberal media!! And the media doesn't give a damn about this man being beaten!!

    Thanks for writing about Carlos. This story needs to be everywhere.

    I'm adding you to my blogroll!

    You're welcome Robert!! Thanks for adding me to your blogroll!! As always, don't be a stranger!!

    Those who read my blog may or may not know that at times I do have issues with the military.

    But when I read that a grieving father of a deceased soldier provoked absolutely nobody and was beaten, I just got completely pissed off. So, I wanted to do my part to get the story out there and make people aware of what's going on!!
