Eamon Kelley, the young Marine who is featured in Move America Forward's TV commercial that ran on Fox News earlier this week, spent his day today in Berkeley, Calif. in front of the Marine recruiting offices.
Another national/local ad blitz begins on Monday.
Meanwhile, CodePink has set up a virtual blockade at the recruiting center, expanding it's efforts to harass our troops and turn back young Americans looking to enlist. (The Berkeley City Council stubbornly refuses to apologize and continues subsidizing free parking for CodePink efforts to drive our soldiers out of town.)
Eamon, who is recovering from back surgery, gutted it out under blazing skies in the boycotted town.
He sent me this e-mail after spending four hours there.
Titter Meter: HIGH.
"While we were at the protest in Berkeley from 12 to 4 PM a white volvo drove by and a man spat upon code pink. They chased him down the street and got into a verbal altercation. The police were NO WHERE in sight. That's not the best part, ready for this? Medea Benjamin yelled and I quote "Marines!" she actually yelled for our help because this man had stepped out of his car. Lol. I even asked her if she was yelling Police and she told me "I said Marines" then put her arm around my friend Allen (the Marine vet) Ironic? Ok back to the emails!! "
Speaking of e-mails, Eamon has recieved hundreds and hundreds of letters of support from Americans all across the country after he was featured in my WorldNetDaily.com a couple of weeks ago, and the blogging from so many people, including Michelle Malkin, Pat Dollard, Spree at WakeUpAmerica, EaglesUp, Gathering of Eagles, Canada Free Press and dozens more.
The e-mails are continuing to pour in, and Eamon has promised himself that he is going to respond to all of you people who have written to him.
I am scheduled to appear on The Fox News Network with Bill O'Reilly at 6:00 p.m. EST tomorrow 2/28/08 to discuss the latest developments, including the attacks on other recruiting centers around America, plus a grassroots efforts to boycott Berkeley that is blooming across the country.
