Moonbats Take to the Streets

(Cross posted at Respectfully Republican)

I interviewed with Dori Monson on KIRO Talk 710 today about the YAWR protests. A lot of people participating were duped into thinking this was simply "standard liberals" doing their "standard protest". Today's march was far from standard Left procedure.

Unbeknowst to many participants, today's march was organized by the Socialist Alternative, a group advocating the replacement of American-style capitalism and democracy with State Socialism (no joke). What was normal were some of the tactics used. The Seattle Times reports that one man was arrested for a parole violation, and as I can personally attest, he wasn't the only unshaven "downtown local" (read: panhandlers) in the bunch ;0)

At the end of the day, I wonder how much it even matters that the march and events were sponsored by the FAR-FAR-FAR Left. Afterall, the media hasn't made any meaningful distinction (except for Dori Monson on KIRO).

Thank God for patriotic Americans like Anthony Mantova, the organizer of the Tacoma counter-demonstration. I was informed that Clara Lightner & Co. of Tacoma YAWR were met with a lively resistance of veterans, troop supporters, and military families. More info, including pictures, will be forthcoming.

My personal favorite was the green haired kid on KOMO who said "It beats going to school".

A runner-up was the girl on KVI saying she was protesting because our soldiers are over there raping innocent Iraqi children.

Honorable mentions to the SPU professor whao said schools don't teach enough about inner and outer peace, the girl who didn't know who Condi or Rumsfeld were and had never heard of Halliburton and the many people who were protesting recruiters on school campuses, but none of them had ever been approached by a recruiter nor had they known anyone that had been approached by a recruiter.
