Protest Warrior redux.
I remember the first time I heard Kfir Alfia. It was February 2003 when I was driving to lunch and had Rush Limbaugh’s show on the radio. Over that previous weekend a couple of young guys infiltrated
A conservative living in San Francisco at the time, Kfir was the proverbial fish out of water. Everyday he would drive home from work he would see these slogans parroted by the anti-war crowd. Kfir would chuckle at the things he saw. “Wait a minute”, he thought. “Didn’t war effectively end terrible, oppressive things like slavery, communism, fascism, etc.?”
At that moment, Kfir had an idea. He and three of his conservative buddies decided to put these parody slogans on poster board and walk amongst the protesters.
The result? The left had the extreme nature of their ideology thrown back into their face and didn’t know how to handle it.
The following week was when Kfir called into Rush’s show to share the anecdotes of that weekend infiltration. The stories were such a hit with Rush that he asked Kfir to e-mail the photographs of the festivities. The pictures appeared on the Rush Limbaugh web site that day, and Protest Warrior was born. In the four years since, PW has expanded into all fifty states and even a few foreign countries.
To summarize: In the past four years, Kfir Alfia has appeared on such venues as The Rush Limbaugh Show, The Savage Nation, The Dennis Prager Show, Air America, the highly rated AM 1500 show “The Straight Scoop” and Fox News. Not to mention the fact there’s now a DVD anthology and a brand new book.
And as if he wasn’t already living the charmed life, I read this in an e-mail he sent today:
I recently asked the woman who inspired me to start ProtestWarrior to marry me, and luckily she agreed.
I'm off to Italy to get married and won't be back till mid June.
We hope to see you and other PWs next year in St Paul for the GOP convention. Rumor has it there might be a few leftist protesters there.
