Useful Idiots Caption-A-Rama: Time Travel Field Trip to February 14-16!
Punchdown.org ^ | 16 July 03 | Me

Posted on 07/16/2003 3:43:32 PM PDT by Mr. Silverback

"They are supporting you because they know that evildoers target Iraq to silence any dissenting voice to their evil and destructive policies."
--Saddam Hussein, referring to Western anti-war protestors in a meeting with his sons and high-level military officials, January, 2003.

Back in the days following the February 15th worldwide demonstrations, I composed a thread having fun with pics of all the useful idiots who came out. Sadly, we only scratched the surface of this deep comedy resource. Today, as these same idiots spew hysterical rhetoric about “lies” in the State of the Union address, I think it might serve us to take a trip back in time to the days when they were Saddam’s apologists in the West. I know useful idiots are dangerous, but I also know that, like Mel Brooks and Donald Duck before us, we should use the weapon of humor to whomp the enemies of freedom whenever possible.

These pics haven’t been posted before, as I put this piece on the back burner while I organized the local Rally For America, and then never got back to it during the war. With a few exceptions (like the Rachel Corrie pic) I’ve left the captions as I wrote them in early March. In post #1, you will find the photos from the original thread. Captions other Freepers came up with are preceded by their name in bold type. Phew! Now that all that flotsam is out of the way, let’s wing our way to exotic New Dehli...


This protestor discovered our secret plan– Send the six-year-olds to fight!


Wow, they look just like Afghans CELEBRATING IN THE STREETS AFTER WE BOMBED THEIR COUNTRY AND LIBERATED THEM. HINT! HINT!


Members of Darwin Award Candidates of Tel Aviv march on Feb 15th.



Bet these guys were beating on his face with a shoe around 9 April.


“I will break your back for peace, because I am Senor Bag-of-Crap!”


That saintly young lady, Rachel “Terrorist Martyr” Corrie. Y’know, if Yasser wasn’t stealing all the aid money and socking it away in a Swiss bank, they might be able to afford real flags in Rafah.


Protestors in Karachi. “Human Rights First!” Yeah, just like that island of freedom and compassion we call “Pakistan.”


“War protest? I thought we were here to demand better dental care!”


The Phillipines’ space program is off to a dandy start.


No comment is really necessary here.


Oh no! Sam the Eagle from The Muppet Show has joined the Hollywood anti-America forces!




Mimes against war.


Of course the marches weren’t organized by Communist organizations! What are you, a McCarthyist? Move along, nothing to see here...


And while we’re at it, who says the protestors liked Saddam?


Avoiding war is really just a matter of maturity.


Why does Paris have so many tree-lined streets? Germans prefer to march in the shade.


How many mothers cry when a genocidal maniac starts two wars and kills 1.2 million people?


The newsmag cover behind her reads "France and Iraq: Thirty years of particular relations." Oh, we know there’s been some particular relations going on.


No Blood For Dollars! Blood should only be shed for marks, rubles and francs!


A “peaceful" protest in Athens.


In Thessaloniki, the stink from “Youth Against Soap” was so bad you could see it.


This gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “Theater of War.”


Pray the Rosary! Everyone knows Jesus supports Saddam!


What part of “No” did we not understand? The part where a bunch of Irish hippies get to tell America she doesn’t get to defend herself.


Dang Okies even show up in Amsterdam!


Why did this little Polish girl oppose regime change in Iraq? Because she’s too young to remember Communist Poland. Of course, her parents don’t have that handy excuse...


No surprise that the Grim Reaper is an appeasenik– he does more business when dictators stay in power!


Jelly Doughnuts can be so messy.


Sign translation: You can’t kill this guy! He owes us a lot of money!


“Darn those jelly donuts!”


Yes, this is a real non-Photoshpped picture and no, it’s not the ghost of Neville Chamberlain holding the sign.


Note how many British flags there are among this sea of patriotic young Britons.


I know THIS finger is clean because I’ve had it UP MY NOSE ALL DAY LONG!!!


Why is this brave soul hiding his face behind a hood? Because he knows Texans shoot back.


“War has no winners.” Right, and it never solved anything except Nazism, Communism, Fascism and slavery.


Apparently these Nova Scotians failed to read the part where it says that a BaathistFascist bombed Guernica.


Respect International Law– Just like Saddam does!


Three for one caption special on this picture of Cheese Eating Surrender Monkeys Western Chapter (Montreal): How many lives per gallon?
I dunno, depends on what CAFÉ standards are this year.
OR
I dunno, depends whether he hits us with sarin or VX.
OR
How many Iraqi lives per French gallon? I dunno, ask Chiraq, if you can pull him away from playing huggy-bod-kissy-face with Saddam for a minute.


Ironically, warpaint.


“Ooooh mama, shake it, don’t break it!”


“War IS Terror!” I was going to put some smart-aleck response here, but I just can’t. Terror is when some stockbroker jumps out a window 1000 feet above the sidewalk because his office has become a diorama of Hell. Terror is when a civilian worker at the Pentagon gets a good deal of her face and all of her fingers burned off. I hope you never find out first hand what real terror is, you twit.


Oh no! The Great American Chicken has made its mark on the sands of Sant Monica!


I think those Marines are thinking about starting Operation Beat Hippie...or maybe they’re wondering where their gas masks are.


These brain donors should get T-shirts made that say “I got spit on by hippies when I got back from ‘Nam and I figured I’d try it too!” Guys, if you think ‘Nam sucked, try being in Chicago when Al-Qaida nukes it. That will be a bad day at the beach, baby.


Dang! We’ve had the answer the whole time! All we need is love! We could have just called Saddam and told him we loved him and he would have stopped murdering people and training terrorists! It could have worked!


I can’t figure out what Dogbert’s New Ruling Class has to do with the war, but I’m not surprised these guys don’t like the DNRC–They’re obviously Induhviduals. (Sigh!) This picture is from the march in Portland, Maine, as if I needed any more reasons to be glad I moved West.

Elwood sez, “DownEast Commies. They’re just as bad as Illinois Nazis.”


Wow, I’m sure that kid in the picture is really proud you’re taking a crap on his service. Better hold on to that mask, Sparky, you’re living in a target area.


“Iraqis are people too.” Yes, which makes your willingness to help keep them in the torture chamber all that much more mystifying.


“Calling all cars. Be on the lookout for a bunch of lost idiot janitors who think Minneapolis is in Wisconsin.” Of course, if the Janitors of Wisconsin are against the war, we all have to switch sides!


Actually, “Dying For Dollars” was a game show hosted by Jack Kevorkian, but it never really got past the pilot stage.


“Wooooooooooo! Freeeebird!” These are easily the rowdiest folks in Salt Lake City.


Attack of the Killer Puppets From Mars will continue after these messages!


Background: Space Needle. Foreground: Space cases.


“Run for your lives!! The Killer Puppets from Mars caused a runaway globe catastrophe! Aaaghh!! Runaway globe!” “An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind!” Yeah, well an Iraqi nuclear weapon going off in your city would make a whole bunch of folk blind.


“War is not the Solution.” Yes, apparently the solution is to get rid of all the guys named Howard.


Why does Dubya have Henry Waxman on a leash?


Jail for all warmongers? Sure! Let’s start with Saddam!



Nothing witty to say about these two...I just had to include them because it's so amazing that the useful idiots in New Zealand think these are great, compelling pics! Very convincing!


Yep, it’s just not a peace protest until the guy with the tambourine and his stoned girlfriend show up.


Thousands were treated at area hospitals for eye and lung damage when a stiff sea breeze blew the stink from anti-war protestors into the heart of Rio De Janeiro.


Doe the DEA know Manuel Noriega is out on weekend furlough?


And last, but not least, the king idiot of all appeasenik protesters, the guy with the bushy hair standing inches from a burning flag in Quito, Ecuador. Definitely a future Darwin Award winner to watch.

Here are some more from the original thread. Captions posted by those other than me have their name at the beginning in bold letters.


McMurdo Station appeaseniks. Proof that Antartic cold kills brain cells.


"People Are Not Collateral Damage" Yeah, if only Saddam would figure that one out...


The footprint of the Great American Chicken marks the snow of the Frozen Continent while Hussein tortures people to death. Makes ya proud to be an American, don't it?


Fans in Cairo were so desperate for Ricky Martin tickets the police had to hold them back.


A confused Ricky Martin fan yells "Freebird!" as he waits for the King of Latin Pop to make an appearance at the Cairo Hilton.


Yes, I'm sure starving Iraqi children ask "What have we done to deserve Saddam?" And "Bush is a Butcher"? Hmmmm, I think you have him confused with a mustachioed dude in Baghdad. Name begins with an "S"...c'mon, I know you can figure it out...I'll give you a cookie!


Don't kill for petroleum, kill to suppress dissent and control the population, like the wise and venerable Chinese Politburo!


The reasoning on this sign is so witty and brilliant, I just decided to join the anti-war forces!

OK, maybe not right now. CSI is on in ten minutes.


El Gato:Not only are we Anti-American, we are Anti-Texas! To which I would only add "GET A ROPE".


While their property wives look on, two Jakartan men say, "Whoever gets the bigger piece gets to make a wish!"


El Gato: The man wants all of us dead, but we still love him. Are we dumb or what?


El Gato:Anti War Rally? I thought this was the tryouts for the Swedish Bikini Team! (from Goteborg Sweden).

Or:

Yah shur yu betcha, dat Saddam is yoost mis- ooonderstoood.


El Gato:Flower Power Forever! So this is what the sixties were like, except they didn't have cell phones.


El Gato: Communist and Proud of It.
New Yorkers for Stalin.


El Gato:I don't know why we're here, but Fidel promised us an extra bowl of gruel if we came and waved these flags, and a bullet if we didn't.


Blue Scourge: In a proud french tradition, the citizens of Paris flea the city as the Germans make their semi-annual invasion...


Blue Scourge:NO WAR!!!! or else we will send our Evil Communist Chef after YOU!!!!


Alouette: Useful Idiots of the Mosaic persuasion.
Teacup: Guy on the left................."Take my wife, Please!" (bada Bing!)

The word in the flower are greek they say "there is another possibility"

most of the protesters in Thesaloniki were radical students and MOSLEM albanians.
NOTE: Same students would KILL to work for an american corporation.
NOTE2: All students participate in the anual US visa lottery.

Saddam sympathizers.

The USA could have been giving away free gold and these

wacko's would have been protesting.

The push from these anti-americans is to find a way to counter
the USA's dominance. The french and their ilk is to create a new USSR type force.
They can't compete militarily but they will try and fight with paper euros.

Yeah, it's amazing to me just how deep the hatred of America runs, even in those who would get in here if they could.

I Fireworked the captions (Photoshop doesn't handle Hebrew fonts too well) in this picture of "Neturei Karta" self-hating Jewish freaks who think that by dressing up like Hasidics people will think they are religious.

The caption on the sign on the right translates, "I'm a reject of P'Tach" ("P'Tach" is actually a very well known Hebrew school for learning disabled children--no insult intended to this excellent organization--and they would certainly not accept a freak like him)

Where are the pictures of Martin Sheen and that ugly dog-girl in the braids with the duct tape over their mouths?

Re: ".........McMurdo Station appeaseniks.........."

They cut their funding, and all plane flights, off immediately leaving them stranded down there. Let them swim back.

...footprint of the Great American Chicken...

Amazing. Those scientists in McMurdo are pretty special. They have managed to recreate the complex geometric object, the circle. But look! some of them fell down trying.

With the reduction in spending, maybe we can fund another tax cut!

I don't know which is funnier, the captions or the pictures. And speaking of the pictures, is it just me or do the same people keep popping up over and over again?
