The Village Voice is already compiling the list of freaks who will be protesting the 2004 GOP convention in NYC.

Personal favorie: Mad Anarchist Bakers' League



"Each time I've met Huffington, I wondered if she was not somehow the long-lost daughter of Madame Nicolai Ceaucescu, or a genetic cross between Martha Stewart and Count Dracula. Had this Greek-born harpy lived in medieval times, she would have been sewn up in a bag with a rooster and two snakes and thrown into the nearest river."

Yeah, absolutely crazy groups like "NYC Aids Housing Network", or "NYC Forum Of Concerned Religious Leaders", or "United For Peace & Justice", or "Independent Media Center"...

Not self-respecting organizations like "Army of God", or the "Christian Coalition"...

Uh...you're not hearing that out of me.

Hey you know, I did a quick google search to see who these groups are, and you are right. They ARE crazy. Sure they have cute names like "NYC Forum Of Concerned Religious Leaders" but here's a quote from one of their calls to rally last December "All are urged to participate who recognize that a new war, after the devastation of a 12-year embargo, will deprive human beings of their most basic rights. Together we will celebrate life and hope. Together we will stand in solidarity with the men, women, and children of Iraq as well as with neglected and victimized people in our own land—in short, with all those who will pay a terrible price for the warring madness of this nation’s leaders."

Now that we are digging up lots of mass graves in Iraq, I wonder if they still feel the same way about supporting the Butcher of Baghdad.

"United For Peace & Justice" and the "Independent Media Center" also appear to be some crazy Bush haters too. Just look at their main web pages for cutsie little poster type images of George Bush with rad slogans like "Bush Lies, Who Dies?" and "Elect a madman you get madness" and Bush saying "Stop me before I kill again."

Thanks for pointing out these nutjobs. I guess they try to legitimize their extreme left wing insanity by creating these innocent little names for their clubs.



'But if one is struck by me only a little, that is far different, the stroke is a sharp thing and suddenly lays him lifeless, and that man's wife goes with cheeks torn in lamentation, and his children are fatherless, while he, staining the soil with his red blood, rots away, and there are more birds than women swarming about him.'

"Army of God" I'll give you, but what the hell is wrong with "Christian Coalition?" I don't side with their politics, but if people want to rally together because of their religion, then that is their right. Just as everyone on that list of protestors has the right to rally around their socialist beliefs ("Left Turn," et. al) and rabid hatred of the President (everyone).

You know, there are those who would respond to the question "Bush lies, who dies?" with a list of all the soldiers who have perished in Iraq thus far, especially those who died after George showed off his snazzy flight suit in front of the "Mission Accomplished" banner.

If being someone who thinks Bush is a pathological liar with little to no regard for the welfare of anyone who cannot directly benefit his political ambitions makes one crazy, well I'll gladly take that straitjacket.

I think that was Leroy's point Palp. No need to call all those who are going to protest the GOP convention "Freaks" when they definately aren't all crazy whack nutjobs, and especially when the GOP has their own crazy whack nutjobs.

No, for the millionth time, it was about lying under oath. David Kay makes his report about weapons findings in September, can't anyone wait until that before we jump ahead and call bush a liar?

...huh? I don't see support for Saddam there. What I see is a group supporting Americans (civilians and soldiers) and innocent Iraqis... the ones who lost their basic human rights to Saddam, and are losing more because of sabotage and other acts. Face it, the first basic human right people list is life. People dying in the middle of a war are losing basic rights. Just as if they were killed by a demented dictator, or his beyond-wackjob offspring.

Besides, it IS possible to be anti-Bush and not pro-Saddam. Just because someone doesn't think that this war was the best idea for dealing with Iraq, doesn't mean that they were in favor of keeping Saddam in power. -_- Now, if they actually ARE supporting Saddam, I don't know. But that quote doesn't say they are.

Good for you for reading the Village Voice. I take in the NY Post, so we're even.

Natch.

However, I'd still take someone who lies about sex under oath then someone who lies about everything else, including lies that end up winning the people's backing for war.

For a media with a supposed liberal bias, you hear little about that angle of Bush's presidency so far, while Clinton was under daily siege for a much less serious transgression.

I think you're seeing what you want to see. I've seen plenty of stories that even removed the part of Bush's state of the union when he attributes the intelligence about Uranium to the British, and then go on to claim that this has been proven false, despite the fact that Tony Blair stands by it. I'm not a fortune teller, but I have a feeling that after David Kay's report the white house will be vindicated to most, and people like Dean will be dead in the water. The silence from the white house makes me think they have an ace up their sleeves.
