MoveOn.org Picket Joe Walsh’s Fox Lake Office

Here's what brought people to Fox Lake Tuesday.

The electronic call for opponents of Congressman Joe Walsh to gather in front of his Fox Lake office at noon was answered by what appears to be 30-40 people.

I notice from the appearance of the demonstrators that their age approximates that of those attending Tea Party rallies on Route 14 last year.

Demonstrations were also requested for other Republican congressmen’s offices, for example, Congressman Don Manzullo, who represents much of McHenry County now, and Peter Roskam, who will represent Algonquin Township under the Democrat’s redistricting plan.

The Fox Lake demonstration by those motivated by MoveOn.org. I count ten on the side of the street where Joe Walsh's office is located, one crossing the street and two across the street.
A view from across Grand shows 19 in front of Joe Walsh's congressional office.

McHenry County Demcoratic Party activist Terry Kappel, wearing a CNN tee shirt, was kind enough to share the content of his messages.

"Which side are you on? Greed, Need," asks the sign in front of Congressman Joe Walsh's office. The other sign says, "Join the fight. Save Medicare and Social Security."

  1. These are people who called General David Petraeus “General Betray Us” in a New York Time full page ad.

    These are the people who are OWNED and OPERATED by billionaire former Nazi Collaborator George Soros. He has given Moveon millions

    These are the people who immediately after 9/11/01 demanded that we do not retaliate against Al Qaeda and Afghanistan, who harbored them.

    These are the people who blamed America for the 9/11/01 attack – who said we “had it coming” for our alleged “crimes.” And who publicly high-fived along with Noam Chomsky and Susan Sontag.

    I, personally, consider them to be traitors.

    While they have exercised their right of free speech to demonstrate, I am exercising MY right of free speech in denouncing them.

  2. Allen,Nobody here said to do nothing to medicare/medicaid/social security every program could be made better without a doubt but to take the best working programs the goverment has and hand them over to the “free market” is nothing but another payback to make the rich richer and make those who need these programs pay more and more for less and less. And by the way “j” say hi to glen beck for me.

    You may have valid points, you may not. But I will say that calling people Nazis and traitors does not make your points any more believable. That is a major problem in this country. Instead of acknowledging differences and that all Americans can love this country but may not agree on how it should be run, people tend to think they are more or less patriotic and mor or less passionate about their country because their views and beliefs are theirs. This isn’t pointed at one side or the other, but the country as a whole. Diversity is a good thing if it’s embraced but there is so much division because no one is willing to compromise. Once this country’s leaders stop acting like a bunch of children who only want their way, it will have the ability to be the best country on Earth. Until then, it will become a weak country that others see ways to expoit. No one is more or less American than their fellow Americans.

  4. There is no doubt which side Walsh is on, he is on the side of greed all the way. Ditto for ignorance, lies, bigotry and anything else that normal people oppose.

  5. Not A Grafton Resident, that George Soros was a Nazi collaborator is factual, and self admitted. He cooperated with the Nazi occupation of Hungary by disposing of the personal property of Jews who were sent to the death camps. Soros admitted it on a 60 minutes episode originally broadcast on December 20, 1998.

    The definition of treason is “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.” Article 3, Section 3, US Constitution.

    “Rooting” for the enemy – one that committed an unprovoked attack that resulted in the deaths of nearly 3000 people in DC and NYC – or advocating and supporting their cause, including demonstrating against this country after the 9/11/01 attack, constitutes giving them “aid and comfort,” in my opinion.

    That moveon.org participated in the activities I mentioned is a matter public record.

    That I consider their behavior in the immediate aftermath of 9/11/01 to be treasonous is based on my belief that they “kicked America while it was down.” The fact that they vigorously objected to America going to war after 9/11/01 because a Republican was President, while they are silent now that a Democrat is President – even though we are still at war – underscores my belief that their behavior after the attack on America was deliberate and political.

    Further, it is my opinion that treason to achieve a partisan political victory is the worst kind of treason of all.

    That they publicly smeared a decorated 4 star general with a full page NY Times ad, in an attempt to strong-arm the President and Congress from implementing what was proven to be the winning strategy in Iraq is just another example of aiding our enemy and sabotaging the country while we are fighting a war.

    They are entitled to picket the offices of Republicans. And you are entitled to your opinion.

    And I am entitled to mine.

    “When a nation is at war many thing which might be said in time of peace are such a hindrance to its efforts that their utterance will not be endured so long as men fight and no court could regard them as protected by any Constitutional right.” [Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Schenk v. US, 249 US 47, 52 (1919)]

  6. How come George Soros is protected and by whom.

    The UN, IMF, The United States, the Weisenthal Center all know George is a Nazi and War Criminal.

    Why has he never been arresed and brought to justice and hung for his war crime ?

    It may be time to ask why is the US Gov’t protecting Soros ?

    The Nazis occupied. These Nazi, Communist and KKK squatters are no more than Brown Shirt Nazi Occupiers !

    I think the occupiers should have their Furher lead them on a march into Little Odessa !
