Who Wouldn't Enjoy This?
Matt Naus reports on the fun one has being a Troofer:
I've been doing these 9/11 Truth Street Actions for close to 5 years now but this one will remain in my memory for quite a while. Having a 9/11 Truth street action at a college university can lead to some crazy interactions. This was a rough one, and not because we had the usual swear words at times. It was because we also got some spit thrown at us and some guy wanted to kick down our sign. Another guy gave me the finger and it seemed he wanted to put it right up my nose he got so close. Some college girl even got nasty with us. We were stationed on the corner of 16th & Wisconsin Ave. (busy corner) near downtown Milwaukee. There is a high- rise college dorm building on this corner. From about the 6th floor of this dorm building we were getting harrassed by young college kids for about an hour screaming out the window of a dorm room calling it propaganda and singing God Bless America.. One college student, who took our information, was getting harrassed by these guys and he gave his fellow students the finger. Then these window yellers decided to come down to the street level and counter our sign with a sign of their own that said "Over 3000 families demand that we support our troops". These college kids also dressed up in red, white and blue with one of them wearing an Uncle Sam outfit and another wrapping himself in a flag. I guess they wanted to celebrate Veterans Day getting cars to beep at them with there sign. Near the end of our 8 hour day of street action you will see a short Asian student and another student in the Youtube that I interviewed. They started acting stupid during the interview so I cut it kind of short. Anyways, this Asian student flew past me and grabbed one of our signs that I just put against a garbage can and he took off. The sign had a picture of the war criminals in the Bush administration. I gave chase for about a block but this 60 year old guy couldn't catch him so I had to stop before I had a heart attack. I called the police and gave a report telling them I had the thief on youtube and waited for about an hour but no police came.
Sounds like fun!
