Yesterday, I told you how residents of Denver suburb Golden, Colorado got their City Manager, Mike Bestor, to reverse his boneheaded decision to host Al-Jazeera for a barbecue in his backyard. But, as I also noted, the Buffalo Rose bar in Golden will now welcome the Terrorist News Network and its American boob, Josh Rushing.
Well, my readers in Golden need your help if you are anywhere nearby. They plan to give Al-Jazeera a special, All-American welcome. Please help them, tomorrow after work. Details here.
Golden-area reader Laura sends this from Golden activist Laurel Imer:
Don’t forget to show up with your American flags!!
Please pass this on to your patriotic friends and family:
WE NEED SOME NOISE!
CALLING ALL LOUD & PATRIOTIC
MOTORCYCLES, CARS AND TRUCKS!!!!
Al-Jazeera is BROADCASTING FROM The Buffalo Rose in Golden, CO
If you disapprove of welcoming a news agency that gives open air time to terrorists . . .
Please proudly & loudly drive up and down 12th St. between Washington & Ford in Golden (Or as close as they will let you!) with your American flags!
On the afternoon/evening* of Wed., Aug 27th
And MAKE SOME GOOD ‘OL AMERICAN NOISE!!!
Al-Jazeera will be trying to broadcast from the patio bar of the Buffalo Rose!
*It’s an after work event!
Below is a GREAT letter from a wonderful woman that I met at the City of Golden Council Meeting:
To My Fellow Americans,
As a follow up on our grassroots effort to challenge Al Jazeera and the City Of Golden,Co, you may have read or heard in the news, we brought a challenge before the city council on Thursday August 21, 2008. Our efforts were rewarded by having the city manager apologize for his mistake and cancel the BBQ that had been previously been planned, to be hosted by him, at his home.
This was a small victory for us , but we weren’t done yet. We had t-shirts printed to sell as a boycott of The Buffalo Rose in Golden, Co – the “Biker Bar” that is hosting Al Jazeera media during this week of the DNC. The shirts were sold out in less than 24 hours over the weekend, and all proceeds went to Operation Uplink, a program to get prepaid calling cards to our troops.
This has been a great demonstration of truth in action. Along with organizations such as The VFW, The American Legion, The Combat Veterans, Military personnel, and average citizens, it is proof that when a group of people stand up for our rights, the truth ,our troops and the moral values on which this country was founded, –
Great things can happen!
I am disappointed that more people in the media chose not to think that this was an important issue. I believe strongly that this was no accident on the part of Al Jazeera media in choosing Golden, Co. and specifically The Buffalo Rose for their propaganda campaign. A biker bar, of all places is just the kind of thing they would want to show to their Islamic viewers. I would have expected someplace more neutral in it’s demographic makeup. There are other choices in the city of Golden, that would probably have better representation of the “inclusive and diverse” community that Al Jazeera and the City of Golden were trying to promote. Realistically speaking, they have no intent of showing Golden in a positive light. The possible repercussions of a group of American patriots and bikers riding through the streets, defending their constitutional rights, could turn into an interesting piece of journalism, all while Al Jazeera’s cameras are rolling. I hope that as the days progress our American media outlets can see that this is truly something to take notice of, and that it is not too late. There is still time to get attention if the proper people are contacted.
There is a website now in place to get more information, www.buffalorosehostsaljazeera.com. It is being continually updated and is an important piece of the puzzle, allowing us to reach an even larger audience with our message of truth. Our main goal is to educate people on who and what Al Jazeera represent to our American way of life, our Troops and our FREE Country.
I want to thank all of you for your help in getting our message out to the citizens of Golden and the world. I have experienced a renewed faith in the democratic process on which our Republic was founded.
Please help these people welcome Al-Jazeera, if you can.
