Pro-Troop Demonstration brings Iraq / Afghanistan Vets and Military Families to Denver

No sooner do I write about the stars aligning against Barack Obama of late, I get another email from American Victory Coalition.

Pro-Troop Demonstration brings Iraq / Afghanistan Vets and Military Families to Denver
The American Victory Coalition brings a Pro-Victory/Pro-Troop message to Denver and the
Democratic National Convention

Where: Pioneer Monument, on the northwest corner of Colfax Avenue and Broadway
When: Sunday, August 24th
10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Americans from near and far will assemble in Denver, CO to show their support for our troops and their missions in Iraq and Afghanistan. For details and updates:

One of the rally’s organizers recalls “One of my best friends went on three tours to the middle east, and died last year. His mom told me that when she told him she saw my pro-troops activism on a Denver Nine news story, he burst into tears while serving in Iraq.” Our troops need to know that the American public and our representatives in Washington have the resolve to see their missions completed. Public demonstrations of support on the home front boost the troops’ morale.

Our enemies understand that military strength is nothing without national support. George Orwell put it best in his 1941 essay Pacifism and the War "If you hamper the war effort of one side, you automatically help out that of the other...Pacifism is objectively pro-fascist. This is elementary common sense."

Anti-war demonstrations today are generally organized by surprisingly radical anti-democratic groups. Even the most benign sounding organization in the coalition organizing the anti-war protest in Denver, a Quaker group called The American Friends Service Committee, supports America’s unilateral disarmament and supported the Vietnamese Communists, Pol Pot, Fidel Castro, and the PLO. This is but one example.

The rally location is adjacent to the anarchist/pacifist groups' main anti-war demonstration. The rally will also be face to face with Democratic Convention Delegates gathering for the DNC Host Committees Welcome Party.

Dynamic speakers from Vets for Freedom and prominent Colorado vets, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, will speak at the rally about their experiences and the importance of never surrendering to those who have vowed to destroy America and our allies. Debbie Lee, mother of the first Navy Seal to lose his life in Operation Iraqi Freedom, will also address the crowd. She has been a leading spokesperson supporting the efforts of U.S. troops fighting in the war on terrorism.

Invited participants also include Families United for Our Troops and Their Mission, a not-for-profit, non partisan organization consisting of Gold and Blue Star families (whose loved ones have been killed or injured in battle, or who are still in harm’s way) and Americans who share a deep appreciation for our men and women in uniform. It is also comprised of patriotic Americans who have a desire to show their support for America’s heroes and their families.

The rally's purpose is to show the world America’s true colors: strength, compassion, and resolve in the war on terror. This is an opportunity for patriotic Americans to fight for the troops that are fighting so courageously for America. The organizers welcome everyone who wants to show their support for victory in the war against radical Islamic extremists and the regimes that support them.
