Friday March 11thYaaaay, Chicago! Our guests for this month's protests are right little badasses. Also possibly cyborg. Great miniraid, lots of traffic. Fun times. Brief appearance from Trollwife, a closet Scientologist who likes to bitch about jews, is of the opinion we're secretly Scientologists protesting our own religion, and did the first assault on Clearwater anons, way back in 2008. Partially through the day Bay News 9, our local (non-scientologist) news channel shows up and jokes around with us about how hilarious it was that they were making the scilons walk a block out of their way to avoid us. Saturday morning we all turned on the news to check the weather etc and see ourselves on TV. BN9 did a piece about how horribly inconvenient and difficult traffic will be in downtown Clearwater between the hip hop concert and a Scientology event in town. And without explanation chose as the footage us walking around with "L RON HUBBARD: PROPHET FOR PROFIT" and "TAX THE CULT" and "DON'T WORRY, WE'RE FROM THE INTERNET" signs on full display. I'm sure there's more for Friday, it's just slipped my mind. Wait for the other anons.Saturday March 12th, downtown CWHot damn. Shortstuff is in town today, so our normally timid band of scilon brothers was especially on edge. Last time he was in town we caught the scientologists painting over one of the scilon buildings ten minutes before he was due to arrive, in such a hurry they were painting over any leaves that happened to be sitting on the building. We got a new record of simultaneous OSA handlers today, seven at once, including our wee little friend Vollie from the Ybor City Volunteer Minister tent. We also had a cameraman who at the time I thought was creepy and now think is a fucking douchebag follow us around all day saying he was filming stock footage (of us? lmao) and wanting to do interviews. For stock footage. Right. More on him later.Protest today went great as well. Notable appearances include Pat Harney and Kendrick Moxon (FUCK YOU SOCAL ANONS, KEEP YOUR BATSHIT CRAZY IN YOUR OWN STATE PLZKTHX). Sorry, no Kirstie Alley or her ass. Also making its debut was our new sound system, which is obscenely loud. And weighs about an ounce. No, it doesn't make sense to me either.We later discovered that at least two of the vehicles leaving this protest got tailed. HEY DIPSHITS, WAY TO PICK THE NAMEFAGGED ANONS TO FOLLOW. GOOD JOB.Saturday evening, LRH birthday, Ruth Eckerd HallParty Hard! After a pause for omnomnoms, Clearwater Anonymous and company head over to Ruth Eckerd Hall for the LRH birthday event.The WELCO sign is a staple at Clearwater LRH birthdays: http://www.flickr.com/photos/32282375@N08/sets/72157615313806156/Their large banner that stretches down the road attaches to a scaffolding about...hm, well in this photo from 2009 it was just under two stories. Problem is, they misjudged the distance and didn't build the scaffolding tall enough, so the sign just read WELCO EVENT PARKING. It cracked us up at the time and we made jokes about it all year. Then in 2010 they tried a different sign layout. Lots of narrower "welcome" scaffolding signs...which also weren't tall enough, despite us mocking them so hard the year before. That year we had WELCO WELCO WELCO WELCO TO THE EVENT.We figured there'd be no way they'd screw it up three years in a row. And they didn't...sort of. They went back to the original style of sign, and did build it tall enough for the full Welcome to hang. Except they got the bright idea to surround it with man-high bushes to interfere with our ability to stand at the entrance to the theater. And guess what two letters those bushes blocked out? Even when they do it right, they still do it wrong.And those bushes? They spaced them too far apart, we just stood in between them. And normally at this event they practice what we call umbrella tech (because the first time they tried it they used literal colorful umbrellas) and hold up big "EVENT PARKING" signs in front of us to hide us from view. It's always a game to see who can get into the best position. This time, their signholders had obviously been planning to attend the event, as they were all dolled up in suits and wee little bowties and ties and shiny shoes, and didn't want to mess up their suits by crawling into the bushes after us. So as soon as we put one bush in between us and the crosswalk they stood at, they lost all ability to block us. Silly scifags.Our sweetheart OSA director Peetie Mansell made an appearance, which is good because he hadn't tried to chat with us in so long we weren't sure he was still alive. He lost permission to handle us after he caught him assaulting an anon (me, actually) on video and pasted it all over the place. The handlers from earlier showed up, and at one point broke out a couple cigars to blow smoke around. Lmao, did you think we didn't notice one of them coughing his lungs out because of it? You couldn't find scientologists that were actually smokers?Every year they do some filming at the entrance. Traffic coming in, a bit with their little sourpuss chick who talks about how many people are coming in from out of town, that kind of thing. Since the event is in the evening, they have a very narrow band of light to work with before sunset, or they lose their shot and the footage is unusable. And I won't say I made it my personal mission for the past few years to completely fuck up their footage...but I made it my personal mission for the past few years to completely fuck up their footage. And by the way? MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. Why scientologists think telling me they're trying to film is going to get me to move out of their camera angle, I will never know. Also, new addition to our collection of pet scientologists: Tux, the sexy little Umbrella Tech signholder in the shiny shoes and bowtie that one of the OSA handlers referred to as studmuffin. God that was a nice suit. Seriously, nice ass.OKAY BACK TO DOUCHEBAG. The cameraguy that followed us all day followed us to Ruth Eckerd Hall. He hang around, did his creepy little thing, and then had the balls to get pissed off that the anons were responding to him with suspicion. He then took a swing at one of the anons and smacked at his camera. AND THEN, our dashing young friend shows up on WWP bitching about how stressed out he was and it was totally our fault, not his, and that totally isn't an assault. No, really, he did:http://forums.whyweprotest.net/thre...flag-and-ruth-eckerd-hall.69244/#post-1446143 Conversation with him is ongoing on that thread, including our responses.
