Skip to comments.The Family-Friendly Easter Bomb Hunt (WAPo Assists Moonbats Again) - DC Chapter To Counter 4/9/07
Posted on 04/06/2007 9:07:26 AM PDT by tgslTakoma
Seven-year-old Alvin Mitchell worked intently yesterday on what looked to be a blue balloon wrapped around a tennis ball. It was a fake version of a cluster bomb, and the real thing, he pronounced, can "blow you up and kill you."
The fake bombs Alvin and a dozen other children were making at a peace workshop will be put to use Monday in Lafayette Square. As hundreds attend the White House Easter Egg Roll on the South Lawn, a smaller group will gather at the park on the north side for what is being billed as a "family-friendly Easter cluster-bomb hunt."
"Obviously, we're trying to spoof a little bit what will be happening on the South Lawn," said Brian Hennessey of the Vineeta Foundation, a local human rights group founded in 1995 that is the lead sponsor of the cluster-bomb hunt. "We're not trying to hit kids over the head with this; we want them to have fun."
"This is supposed to be funny," he said about the hunt. "We're not trying to be confrontational. We're not going to be in anyone's face. People are welcome to reject what we say or think about it."
Other peace groups, such as Code Pink and the Coalition for Justice and Accountability, came onboard.
The event, which runs from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m., the same hours as the White House Easter Egg Roll, will include a search for weapons of mass destruction for the adults.
A hulk of a large bomb will be filled with toy bombs, and a prize will be given to whoever guesses the number inside.
*The adults told the children they could write their names on the "bombs" and take them home after Monday's event.

We will gather on Pennsylvania Avenue, directly in front of the White House, from 9am until noon.
Eagles UP !!
DC Chapter ping. If you’re off work on Easter Monday...
Futher proof (as if we needed any) that liberalism leads to severe mental disorder.
A cluster bomb egg hunt is supposed to be FUNNY??
Okay, these people have now dived off the sanity board and are swimming in delusional deep end.
Good grief - is their no end to their insanity........or their abuse of children?
Yet these same moonbats would be screaming for a cop if I walked passed one of their precious moonbats in training with a cigarette..........
You should read the comments (even from fellow Moonbats) on the WaPo link. Nearly everyone is coming down hard on the organizers and against this disgusting “demonstration.”
am going to try to "get off work" long enough to go shoot some pix!!! (little GRRLS are only young enough to do that for an all TOO brief a time!!!)
What could possibly be more fun than reveling in Bush Derangement Syndrome and teaching the kids about cluster bombs?
They are encouraging their kids to hunt for, and to pick up, odd-looking objects, and pretending that they are bombs.
In Iraq and other war zones, parents teach their children just the opposite. Stop! Don't touch! Leave the area! Tell a US soldier! (similar to NRA Eddie Eagle lesson about firearms)
This is disgusting child abuse!
These “people” are truly deranged. This is what happens as secular, non-judgementalism grows in a society. We need to bring back mandatory military service for all young men and women in the USA. I think our survival as a nation is in the balance. The end of the Baby Boomer generation, of which I am smack in the middle, cannot come soon enough.
Stop! Don’t touch! Leave the area! Tell a US soldier! (similar to NRA Eddie Eagle lesson about firearms)
These idiot “parents” are using imitations of bombs like people have used wild animals to convey ‘sweet, innocent’ messages.
I hope the DC news outlets give these folks a severe blasting. Actually, I hope there is some kind of ordinance against planting imitation bombs anywhere in DC, especially across the street from the White House.
In short, I conclude with this pic:
