Several thousand demonstrators rallied at Civic Center Plaza in San Francisco on Thursday night, protesting the inauguration of President Bush and calling for an end to the war in Iraq. After the rally, demonstrators marched along Market Street, effectively closing the street.
Speakers at the rally gave fiery denunciations of Bush and his policies, with many shouting personal insults and some comparing his actions to that of the Nazis in pre-World War II Germany.
"Today is a sad day in history. A war criminal has been sworn in as president," said Alicia Jrapko of International ANSWER, the group that organized the rally.
San Francisco police did not estimate the size of the crowd as the department no longer does such counts, said spokeswoman Officer Maria Oropeza. During the rally, the central portion of Civic Center Plaza was filled with people, and the march stretched multiple blocks.
Other Bay Area cities also held anti-inauguration rallies Thursday. About 200 people gathered in downtown Berkeley to hear the first of a series of readings of Langston Hughes' celebrated poem, "Let America Be America Again...."

I want to take San Francisco back. How can we kick them out or send them to Canada?
Who cares? These people are losers!!!
It's not as if they are going to stop him from having a second term. They don't even have that as a potentiality.
Let them protest. Let them denounce. They should protest on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and denounce on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. Then on Sundays they should burn incense, see their shrinks, perform wiccan healing ceremonies... and be ready Monday morning for another fresh round of protesting and denouncing. For the next four years.
This thread shows what these sicko's really are. They are commies...They hate freedom. They hate our free market. They hate America. These people show no respect to us or any one that doe's not fall under there thinking. These people are like the nazi's of today. How disgusing those photo's are, I'm washing my eye's out. It makes me sick!
If my name were "Crappo", I'd think long and hard before letting the media quote me.
You should have seen the parade of anti-Bush, anti-America, protesters marching and shouting all over the campus of the University of Houston today.
I agree. They are domestic enemies and the day is getting nigh when we have to decide if we are going to put up with them or not.
Ok, let's try and make this as simple and clear as possible for those cretins. Whether you agreed with the war or not, we are now there. WE are not the ones at war, we are the ones being constantly attacked with exploding vehicles, body worn bombs, random mortar and rocket attacks into civilian areas, kidnapings, beheadings, ambushes, and the list goes on. The vast majority of Iraqis are Shiia and want power through the election process. The vast majority of the people conducting war on Iraqis and Americans are Sunni who can't handle the notion they are going to lose power through the ballot box. We want to end this war as soon as possible and all the insurgents have to do is accept they can't take power with a gun, and must participate in the electoral process. The instant that happens we are out of Iraq. What part of that don't these leftists like? Do they hate the idea of a free election? Perhaps since leftist can never win elections with their lame ideas, they sympathize with the Sunni thugs.
I believe in my lifetime -- we will be forced to take action against these lunatics...
They NEVER accept defeat... They NEVER acknowledge THEY are the lunatic fringe....
As much as I hate the prospect of CWII, it may become necessary to cull out all the dead wood and freaks that have been permitted to copulate and populate --- without a brain.
