Alternative Easter Egg Hunt Near White House to Use Fake Cluster Bombs Made By Kids

Friday , April 06, 2007

AP

WASHINGTON — Anti-war and human rights activists plan an unusual take on the Easter egg hunt by holding an Easter cluster-bomb hunt on Monday.

Fake cluster bombs made by children will be scattered around Lafayette Park, north of the White House.

Hundreds of people will attend the White House Easter Egg Roll while activists hold their alternative cluster-bomb hunt on the other side of the executive mansion.

Brian Hennessey, a spokesman for the Vineeta Foundation, a group sponsor, said the event aims to be humorous and fun for kids. Organizers also want to bring attention that cluster bombs cause death and destruction, Hennessey said.

Moonbats, indeed. Indoctrinating little moonbats. Scary, isn't it?

They do realize that car bombs, bombs strapped to people and airplanes flying into buildings also cause death and destruction, don't they?

I wonder if they plan to line the road to Lafayette Park with fake IEDs too.

Secret Service might have a little, minor concern over this “fun event for children.”

Someone should ask the Mayor of Boston how he feels about odd objects planted in cities!

I hope someone will be checking to see if real cluster bombs are not being smuggled in under cover of children’s activities.

This is so much like Palestinian parents dressing their kids up in bomb vests- I bet that’s where they got the idea from.

If they care so much for children why don’t they hold Easter egg hunts in Detroit, Pittsburgh, New Orleans and South Central L.A. urban areas. Those children could use the joy.

The leftist moonbats see no problem with putting bombs on kids and sending them into crowded market places - instead, they focus their anger on anything that the civilized world does in wartime, like use clusterbombs.

The problem with these nut cases is that they have never had bombs dropped on them, never fought in a war, never had to do anything but live in a utopian environment where everything has come easy. They have no perspective of reality and sadly a big part of our government PANDERS to their twisted expectations and faux reality.

It is a house of cards. It will come down eventually.

When I see the words anti-war, human rights activists, and cluster in the same sentence, rarely does the word "bomb" come next to my mind.

These days, few if any deaths in Iraq are caused by cluster bombs. They should have an IED hunt, or stage a mock suicide bombing with simulated explosives in a vehicle. Oh, I forgot, those aren’t the weapons that Americans use, so they are of no interest to the “peace” activists. The peace activists are moral frauds.

They don't give a damn, because those aren't the weapons that AMERICANS use. Thi isn't an anti-violence protest, or a peace protest, it is simply an anti-American protest.

Maybe we should drop marshmellow Peeps on Al Queda instead.

I feel bad for their kids being used as stupidty pawns by their moonbat parents.
These kids should be taken away immediatley and forced to work in a coal mine.

"The leftist moonbats see no problem with putting bombs on kids and sending them into crowded market places - instead, they focus their anger on anything that the civilized world does in wartime, like use clusterbombs."

World opinion was outraged when it was discovered that we taunted prisoners at Abu Ghraib and put panties on their heads; it was at the top of the news for weeks. But the almost daily suicide bombings in Iraq - targeting and killing dozens of innocent civilians - pass by without comment.

I think they should scatter real cluster bombs around just to make it interesting.

Maybe we should make Vince Foster dolls and hide them around Fort Marcey park to protest Clintons killing people!

“Liberalism’s” tenet of not discriminating, even between good and evil, invariably leads them to side with evil and against good.

In general I like sick, off-the-wall stuff, but hijacking Easter and leveraging children like this is just off the deep end. It reminds me of how bitter, feuding parents use their kids to get back at each other, reprehensible.

Watch how fast the sniveling pansies scream for somebody (with bombs) to help them when radical Islamists attack America again.

On a day when the Iranians demonstrate their technology with an IED in Basara and the Sunnies show that they have finally mastered the use of chlorine bombs, you question seems particularly apt.

There’s plenty of comment by the loony lefties on the market bombings - it runs along the lines of “if we weren’t there it wouldn’t happen”.

Man that is too too funny! /sarc Wonder if they will have a easter bunny with a suicide vest on that they can talk to, or have fun shooting nerf IED’s at each other, because this brings out the true meaning of Easter to all kids.

Somebody help me out here: is a fake cluster-bomb considered to be a “war toy,” and thus glorifies warfare in general? Isn’t that the default argument?

Cluster bombs were the big cause during Kosovo (replaced by some whining about WP rounds during Fallujah) and now having a resurgence thanks to the recent Israeli invasion.

"Cluster bombs were the big cause during Kosovo"

Was it Kosovo (or maybe Afghanistan long ago) where the bomblets were made to look like toys? Wasn't that the complaint?

They must all be founding members of Keepers Of Odd Knowledge. (KOOKs for those in Rio Linda)

Mnay years ago I worked on the dies to make cluster bombs. I can't remember how many there were, but quite a few. (High volumne production capacity)

The fins formed into the spherical nose section were altered to attain a larger and more even spread of the bomblets. Cool lookin' little suckers. I had completely forgotten about that.

I wonder what the reaction would be at that 'alternative egg hunt' to a sign that read, "I made cluster bombs".
