Thousands rally across US against Bush policies (Moronic Losers)
WP ^ | November 2 2005 | Christine Kearney

Posted on 11/02/2005 8:21:52 PM PST by jmc1969

Thousands of protesters staged rallies on Wednesday across the United States against the policies of President George W. Bush, including the war in Iraq and response to Hurricane Katrina.

The World Can't Wait organization, a coalition of groups formed recently to stage the rallies, used the anniversary of Bush's re-election to call for his resignation in protests that took place in cities including New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, San Francisco and Chicago.

In New York, students walked out of schools and colleges and joined other supporters as thousands rallied in Union Square before marching nearly 2 miles to Times Square along avenues lined with police on motorbikes.

"The Bush regime is out to remake the world with its policies," said organizer Sunsara Taylor. "From the war in Iraq to environmental policies to the remaking of the Supreme Court ... we are staring down the barrel of fascism in this country."

Olivier Martineau, 16, walked out of his high school with 17 others to join the march. "I am strongly against the war in Iraq," he said. "We are always sticking our noses into other people's business when we don't even realize our battles at home."

Student Tuarian Wolfe, 19, carried a sign reading "No Iraqi ever left me on my rooftop to die," to protest the slow response to help poor people stranded in New Orleans by Hurricane Katrina.

"This war is now resonating with youth with the military recruiting in their high schools and they know they are not far away from danger," she said.

thousands of students from high schools and colleges wer encouraged to hit the streets for this BS. The schools should be fined for allowing them to skip class for such tripe.

Well, I was pretty much an idiot politically too when I was sixteen.

If I grew out of it, there's a chance some of these morons will too.

The young ones, I mean.

Sheer brilliance. And to think this little smartie pants is only 19 and already able to come up with such a profound statement.

"Thousands of protesters staged rallies on Wednesday across the United States against the policies of President George W. Bush,..."

On the other hand, MILLIONS of AMERICANS (the people that make America great) had to go to work on Wednesday.

By my math, that would leave hundreds of millions NOT protesting...

While the dead can be counted on to show up for elections consistently and vote liberal, they never seem to have the energy to make it to these loser-fests...

You beat me to it. I actually just looked up the current American population and it's over 295 MILLION, so at least about 295 million OTHER Americans stayed home, went to work or school or the beach or shopping or the movies and DIDN'T participate in some stupid "protest" or "demonstration.

Support educational choice candidates. Give the parents the right to choose their child's indoctrination.

I went to the WCW rally and march today here in FRisco. It blew. Small crowd, mostly kids. The whole thing is completely stupid. They have no agenda, except to "demand" that the President, and his entire administration, resign. Who will then lead the government is not mentioned. There were some communists there, and on another thread someone said that the whole thing is a front for the Revolutionary Communist Party. This would make sense. There is money and organizational skill coming from somewhere that seems all out of proportion to the triviality of the "movement" itself.

No mature adults, but kids would do anything to skip school. Heck, they probably don't even know who "Bush" is!
This can't be taken seriously. If I promised them all $1 to skip school, they'd do the same thing.

Ahh, the left (from their website after you read the small print).

Our Ideology is Marxism-Leninism-Maoism

Our Vanguard is the Revolutionary Communist Party

Our Leader is Chairman Avakian

The "anti-war" movement: "It was essential to our strategy [to defeat the U.S.]."

"How North Vietnam Won The War," Wall Street Journal August 3, 1995

An interview with Bui Tin, a former colonel in the North Vietnamese army, conducted by Stephen Young, a Minnesota attorney and human-rights activist. Bui Tin served on the general staff of North Vietnam's army He later immigrated to Paris after becoming disillusioned with the fruits of Vietnamese communists.

"Q: Was the American antiwar movement important to Hanoi's victory?

"A: It was essential to our strategy. . . ."

[End of excerpt]

There's a difference between free-speech opposition to your government's policy and anti-government antics that help the enemy.

I believe that after the war the NV admitted that they were ready to talk serious peace by 1969 (after Tet) but they saw the "anti-war" movement growing in the U.S.

"Anti-war" equals more deaths.

Give victory a chance.

Kudos to you. I bugged out of work early as they were planning to close most of the streets and on/off ramps to the 405 freeway in West Los Angeles. The wild eyed leftists roaming the halls at work were so excited about the protest monkeys they were leaving snail trails.

What if "progressives" held a protest and no one showed up?

In Cleveland, the commies and kids cutting school crowd were smaller than the number of police and newsies working the event. LOL!

It's my firm belief that they have the same maturity as my 5 year old daughter and are trying to win the argument by saying "I know you are but what am I".

So when Clinton was convicted of lying under oath we sealed the fate of "Bush the Liar" . If the next democrat president is actually CONVICTED of rape or theft or some other such nonsense, then the republican that follows him (or her) will be XXXXX the rapist or XXXXX the thief...etc.

I'm going to make a buck on the whole thing and start printing T-shirts now. Can anyone figure out how to make the idea 'Rice is a thief' rhyme with "Hey Hey ... Ho Ho...?"
