It probably came as a great surprise to the cop-killer groupies in Philly and the terrorist supporters in NYC that they were met by organized counter-demonstrations.
After all, the Mumia folks are generally used to getting away with the one-fingered-salute that most Philadelphian’s give them, but this past Saturday they got a little more than they were used to.
About 100 bikers showed up and offered up a noisy counterpoint to the rambling and no doubt profanity laced tirades of Pam Africa and company. Amongst this crowd of current and former Police Officers was Philadelphia Police Officer Robert Shoemaker. Shoemaker was one of the first officers on the scene of Faulkner’s murder. It is hard to imagine the mix of emotions that went thorugh his head as he had to endure the parade of ill-informed, mostly out-of-towners, and MOVE cultists, wind their way through Philadelphia chanting for the man that killed his friend and co-worker a quarter a century ago.
I for one, am glad that the streets of Philadelphia were not ceded to this mis-informed rabble and that there were those who came out into the cold to speak truth to ignorance.
Thankfully, the same situation occured in NYC. The following report is from Urban Infidel about the counter-protest that met Lynne Stewart, Ward Churchill and their cadre of terrorist suppporters:
We crashed Lynne Stewart's
'GLOAT PARTY' last night at the Judson Memorial Church downtown across from Washington Square Park.
It was a rousing affair to say the least and it came as a complete surprise to the Lynne Stewart folks who were throwing her a celebration called 'Ode to Joy and Struggle' thanking everyone for their support over the 4 years during her trial
and also to 'unite for the struggle ahead'.
'Struggle' they say? As in 'Mein Kampf' maybe? As in 'jihad' too perhaps..?
The protesters where harassed and called 'Nazis', of course and the KKK over and over and told to 'shut up and to back to Long Island and Westchester' by a moonbat waving the Hitler salute.
At moments it seemed like a horror movie or freak show.
, exhultant in his nighttime radical sunglasses and leather, breezed in for the party for terrorist lawyer fresh from celebrating the 25th anniversary this afternoon of the death of a Philadelphia police officer murdered by Mumia Abu Jamal. The Quaker guy in the black hat stayed outside most of the time deriding the protesters and calling them terrorists like a preacher from Hell. The guy in the green jacket launched into a Tourettes-like 'Fk America' performance piece on the steps of the church, while the Communist in red satin yelled that America was the 'Enemy of the world!'
A man came out and physically threatened one of the protestors and was soon backed up by a mob of very angry looking Mumia supporters. Things looked like they were nearly going to blow when my camera unfortunately died at that precise moment. They backed away a little bit when they saw me approach to take pictures. The police were called in and the protestors who weren't breaking any laws, had to move a couple of feet to the side. I do believe I managed to catch the terror-enabling lawyer on film in the last shot.
