What if they gave a war protest and nobody came?

Despite the call to protest the congressional testimony of General Petraeus and Ambassador Crocker, not many showed up today, as Mark Hemingway reports for NRO:


Indymedia may be a clearinghouse of crazy, but it does command an audience. The event was also sponsored by a number of notable antiwar groups: CODEPINK, Iraq Veterans Against the War, Democracy Rising, Voters for Peace, and unspecified "others." Petraeus's testimony was a landmark event in the Iraq war, so I expected a landmark protest.

So I packed my outrage!!! and hoofed it on down to the CHOB (the lovely acronym for the Cannon House Office Building) where Petraeus was testifying at the appointed time for the protest. Here's what I found:


Read it all at the link above, including pictures of the protesters and Cindy Sheehan's cuffed hands (sparing us the face - thanks, Mark!). Also, the arrest of Rev. Lennox Yearwood Jr., "president and CEO of the Hip Hop Caucus, whose slogan is Make Hip Hop Not War." Hemingway misquotes their original slogan, which was "Support nonviolence - or I'll bust a cap in your a**!"

Seems they were a few nuts short of a Snickers bar . . . Next up: A.N.S.W.E.R.'s annual antiwar protest this weekend - Cindy should have made bail by then.

UPDATE: The "9/11 Truthers" had a better idea: protest on the weekend in San Francisco, and have a free concert by the Indigo Girls! Zombie has pictures . . . pay no attention to the sparsely-attended march, scroll down until you get to the rally/concert featuring supporters of Kucinich, Ron Paul, pot dealers, and every neo-communist outfit you can imagine.

Don't miss the Giant Purple Head, 9/11 Woman, and the Big Buffalo (I mean the balloon, not the chick in the Arafat scarf) . . .

Considering the age group that were part of the group during the Senate testimony they are a few pints of "milk" short of a Milky Way bar.

Maybe the fact that no one on the right is engaging these people is causing them to lose interest. Actually, that's a good technique for the protesters and MSM types (ever get as tired as me of hearing all the perverts on Medved, Hewitt, Hannity etc., getting treated as if they are of substance ?), but the members of congress who slander great Americans, like General Petraeus and the fighters in his charge, should be slammed to the mat with a series of Schumer-esk news conferences ripping them for their anti-American/military hate speech that serves to lift up and strengthen our blood enemies.

Then again, they might be called "mean" or something so, they better not do that.

mullah cimoc:

mullah cimoc say all ameriki should get LBT like Prophet Mohammed had, with big pig licking himself. Then slutty ameriki women should have their clitorises cut off and wrapped up in big sacks. Then ameriki men can be like real muslim men and go and lock up all ameriki women and rape those who don't hide. Only real men are muslim men who are afraid of women showing any power or strength or independence.

and mullah cimoc say all people must remember islam is religion of peace and tolerance. anyone who says islam is not religion of peace and tolerance will have their heads cut off by peace-loving real muslim men.

the blog man say mullah cimoc not scary, but laughable. the blog man say mullah cimoc want western woman with LBT of mohammed so mullah cimoc can pretend he porking pedophile prophet. the blog man say mullah cimoc should be called mullah comic because everyone laugh at mullah cimoc. the blog man laugh because mullah cimoc and all other brave muslim warriors fight with weapons made by great satan (ameriki) and lesser satan (russia) because no muslim made anything worth using in about 1,000 years.

blog man make offer to mullah cimoc: blog man face mullah cimoc and any ten of his muslim boy-loving warriors he likes. brave muslim men can bring any weapon invented by muslims, blog man bring weapons designed and built by westerners. blog man say allah better get 792 virgin sheep ready, because blog man with machine gun not scared of 11 muslims with swords.

(OK, first I gotta disable about half my brain to get the dialect right...)

blog man say mullah comic even dumber than he sounds if he thinks blog man uses hair gel. blog man wishes he had enough hair to use hair gel. And blog man is bully? blog man not the one threatens to behead anyone for saying insults or drawing pictures. why mullah cimoc so afraid of words and pictures? is it because mullah cimoc afraid of things like ideas and freedom? is it because mullah cimoc knows those things will destroy his sense of power, like he has over muslim women?

blog man not need to fight muslims to show he's better, more man. blog man uses weapon muslims most afraid of -- his brain.

(slipping out of dialect)

Come on, mullah cimoc, let's not be so hostile. Why don't you come over here and we'll settle our differences over dinner? Pepperoni pizza, my treat.

When I was stationed in Germany, I would crack up at the guys that would speak to the locals using broken English in a thick fake German accent. Funny stuff.

What was this thread about again?

Oh right....moonbats!

Now if you speak slowly in a thick "stoner" accent to a moonbat, well then, they do understand but it has to be about a subject they are familiar with such as drugs, truther rants or evils of Conservatism. Otherwise you will have to draw pictures to make a point, or third grade level art pieces work too.

MrX:

Check out what Ron Paul said to the Republicans in the Fox Debate. He's run as a Libertarian before, but this time he's running as a Republican. I believe he's the most. He's the most outspoke critic. Fox tried to keep him out of the debates. He's my new hero.

Veeshir:

What if they gave a war protest and nobody came? The 58 "journalists" who did show up would just have to take close shots so that nobody could tell that the only people there are "journalists".
