Lieutenant Commander Smash runs it down better than I ever could and has a request.
THE BIG EVENT will be on Saturday, March 19, in Balboa Park [San Diego, CA]. This will mark the second anniversary of Iraqi Freedom, and the first anniversary of Rebecca's now-infamous speech. [See the post.]I'll do my best to be there, sir.
As you recall, last year at this event I felt that I was surrounded in a sea of anti-American sentiment, and was unable to stand up and denounce the seditious rhetoric of the various speakers.
This year, however, we're going to turn the tables.
We're asking everyone in San Diego to celebrate Independence Day a little bit early this year. On March 19, from 1 to 4pm, come to the west end of Balboa Park for a Patriots' Picnic, in the grassy area along Sixth Avenue, just south of Laurel Street.
Wear red, white, and blue. Pack a picnic for your family and friends. Bring a football, soccer ball, or frisbee (leave the baseball bats at home). Laugh, play, and have fun. Balboa Park is open for everyone -- nobody can prohibit you from using it peacefully.
Oh, and if you feel the urge, you might want to bring along an American flag, or maybe a homemade sign expressing your support for our troops.
We're promising a safe, fun, and peaceful event. We'll be working with the San Diego Police to ensure that the opposing groups are safely separated, and we'll have some of our own security in place, as well.
Don't let the seditionists take over our park, again.
Come on out and show your pride in America!
