The Protest Heard Round the World and a Rodeo Parade

June 20, 2009

There was a parade for the annual Rodeo that is happening in my town of Colville, WA this weekend and I’ve never been to it before. I am not really a big fan of parades and this one wasn’t really all that special.

I am troubled by the violence we are hearing about in Iran on ireports, twitter and other social networks. I thought of the protesters who are so courageous to go to the streets even after the government warned of severe consequences.

I decided to make a video with parade clips and protest photos as a tribute to the brave people of Iran.

Music of course is the Beatles “Revolution”.

    VF, I thank you for that. I felt so compelled to make this and it has touched me deeply. I keep thinking about all those protesters and what they must be feeling. I feel a deep affinity for them.

    thank you for commenting.

    Good Morning my Fellow Patriots!
    Good Morning my Fellow Defenders of Our Constitution!
    Good Morning my Fellow Freedom Fighters!
    It is a good day to continue the fight for our Personal Freedom and to expose the Liberal Socialism that has become a Terminal Cancer to Our Way of Life.
    This is a Cancer that had laid dormant for too many years and it must not just be put into Remission but must be Removed from our Society all together.
    We The People can and will Destroy this Cancer of Liberal Socialism once and for all by making the American People wake up to this life threatening disease and by Our VOTE in 2010 and a final defeat of Socialism in 2012.
    Now is the time for ALL AMERICANS to speak out with ONE LOUD VOICE and put Washington on notice that their days are now numbered. RISE UP AMERICA and be heard like never before. RISE UP AMERICA and let Washington know we are on the move. WE THE PEOPLE Mr. President are now WIDE EYED and aware of all of your deceptions and ill will for our way of life. Your Socialism will never survive the Voice of America. Make no mistake about it, we have had ENOUGH!
