Nutroot 'Peace & Justice' Parade in Manhattan

I went to the 'Peace & Justice' parade this afternoon.

In sharp contrast with the Gathering of Eagles yesterday in DC, large amounts of insanity were spotted in Manhattan today.

We were the only counter-protesters there. You'll recognize our banner pics, front and back.

Little Green Footballs has a post up with a slideshow of my pics here.

Good Job!

I was unaware of this march today in NY, but I was too exhausted after my trip to DC for the Gathering of Eagles to participate anyway.

I like your Gadsden Flag. We sported the same flag in DC.

I suspect that some of the moonbats in D.C. yesterday went on up to NYC for today's parade.

Yesterday's GOE in D.C. was uplifting. For one, the give-peace-a-chance crowd didn't own the streets!

Thanks everybody!

AOW and all,

I would have loved to have been at the Gathering of Eagles in DC yesterday. I did catch a lot of excellent coverage on the blogs.

Great picture! Isn't that the same guy who hires out as a chimney brush?

I'd prefer to see our troops stop fighting the Iraqis and let them do the job themselves, actually. They want to so badly, why not let them? Our guys and gals could be over in Afghanistan or Iran doing a lot more good, while the Iraqis happily reduce themselves in number, thereby getting rid of a lot of the people that are currently killing us. Then we could come back and finish the job after they were exhausted and in tatters. Iraq was never the real problem anyway and we all know it. Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Iran are at the heart of this problem.

PREMIUM JOB, UI!!

They should have named their parade the "Gathering of Idiots" to contrast our DC "Gathering of Eagles"!.

Rastaman's comment is interesting, but I think he is missing the importance of the location we are in by being in Iraq... it is a tremendous strategic launch site for our coming involvement in Iran, Syria, Lebanon and perhaps even Saudi. The whole damn area is infected and we need to keep the 'root' in the center we have established. We are a long, long way from being anywhere near done.

The other thing I would point out about leaving Iraq is that it will only occur with a full on DemoRat takeover in DC. How hard do you think it would be to get the "pull up stakes and haul ass" crowd to actually commit to going back later??? Not a gonna' happen, Folks. We''l be far too busy holding hands with the enemy and apologizing to the French for being uncivil...

Keep slugging, UI... your work is so needed and well done! THANK YOU!

USpace,
Thanks! It was fun actually. Nothing bad happened at all. Just a rolling human tsunami of the absurd.

The 'truther's are some of the creepiest. They always offer me pamphlets on 9/11.

bearkin,
The place was full of Union Square folks. I'm sure you'll recognize some. Just wish my camera hadn't run out of juice when I tried to take a picture of the book stand at the 'Peace & Justice Fair' at Dag Hammersjkold Plaza. They had a copy of 'The Jewish Question' for sale among the Che and Malcom X 'zines.

The photo I like the most aside from all the freaks is the one of the statue of St. George slaying the Dragon. I have to go back one day and take better pictures of it. I just love it.

Oh my that picture of the protesters with the sign reading "Stop Debating Distractions" is classic.

Their contempt for democracy couldnt be more clear. Its no wonder that they love Cuba so much.

You captured the lunacy of the Left quite hilariously in your pictures UI. Our moonbats in San Diego are much more boring than the ones out in NYC, the Bay Area and DC. It ALMOST makes me jealous!!!!

Those pictures reminded me of Hollowayfest in Key West Florida. Plenty of nuts and fruitcakes. I particularly liked the women pretending to be the drummers at the Battle of Bunker Hill.
How can you pretend to be patriotic when you're wearing a torn US flag around your ass?

Hi,

I'm based in England.

Can anyone explain why the sight of people dressing up to take part in a protest has resulted in so much venom and vitriol?

I realise that a lot of Americans are conservative and dumbed down but, really, the hostility expressed about anti-war protestors because of how they dress is a bit OTT!

Certainly, dressing funny doesn't really compare to the illegal invasion of Iraq in terms of international crimes.

I went on a demo in England myself once, when I was about 16, my friends and I all dressed up "funny". We didn't march is suits and ties. No big deal.

Y'know some Marines have tatoos. And they wear blzck t-shirts.

Are you going to be calling them "freaks?"
http://www.grunt.com/scuttlebutt/marine-corps-bs/tattoos9.asp

Or is their desire to dress up and stand out from the mainstream acceptable to you?

Arms dealers wear suits and ties. That makes them Nice Guys, right?

April 01, 2007 1:17 PM  
Blogger Urban Infidel said...

Because, Anonymous if these demonstrators want to be taken seriously it is obvious that perhaps they ought not dress as clowns.

You're comparing this to Marines and tattoos now? Come on, surely you can do better.

April 01, 2007 1:25 PM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

Well, what's the difference between "freaky" piercings and tattoos? Apart from the fact tattos are more permanent?

I don't mind that Marines wear tattoos.

I dont mind that "anti-war" protestors wear fancy dress for the day.

I would never have a piercing or tattoo but some humans want them and that's their business.

There's a long, global tradition of the "counter culture" wearing rubbish/stupid outfits. We have it in England and it's really no bg deal.

As humans, we can look for the good in each other. Disagreements about political opion is fine...hating "freaks" because of what they choose to wear starts to get a little bit frightening.

Some of the comments about young, anti-war protestors needing "A good beating with a truncheon" type thing that I've seen on other American blogs are a bit disturbing and, ironically, reminiscent of the crazed hatred for anything different we get from some Islamists.

It would actulaly be quite, quite frightening if we had illegal wars in Iraq and there were no "freaky" anti-war protestors.

If every American said "Yes, this war is good." and then went shopping at the mall for Coke and Nike and Sony and Xbox...God! what a depressing thought!

Hopefully, the kind of bullying of the "Geeks" and "Fags" and "Freaks" I see in American movies isn't a real representation of American attitudes and values. Although, reading some American blogs i'm starting to get a bit worried...

I think you need to come to
America and get these stereotypes about us out of your mind. The reality is not Xbox or Hollywood movies.

If you are worried about bloggers' comments, perhaps you should be more concerned with the anti-American propaganda generated by the BBC.

You tell'm UI!

Anony, the 'right' or 'correct' may tease the 'Left' or the 'wrong' about what they are wearing, but it's not because of what they are wearing. It is because of their 'insane' and unrealistic, and racist opinions. If they didn't act like fools by spouting foolish ideas like defending terrorists, defending dictators and murderous ideologies, defending rapists and murderers of women and gays, and other generally naive, childlike, kumbaya nonsense; then they wouldn't be teased for how they look.

But since the left is mostly unwilling to debate, but would rather stifle free-speech by screaming 'RACIST!'and 'FACIST!" and other nonsense at anything that questions liberal dogma, it's just plain good old wholesome fun to also tease the moonbats about superficial stuff.

You have to admire when someone named ANONYMOUS berates your intelligence:

"I realise that a lot of Americans are conservative and dumbed down but, really, the hostility expressed about anti-war protestors because of how they dress is a bit OTT!"

and doesn't know how to spell REALIZE or PROTESTERS.

A pretty dumb cow...

More rubbish from ANONYMOUS:

"Some of the comments about young, anti-war protestors needing "A good beating with a truncheon" type thing that I've seen on other American blogs"

I don't think I've ever seen such a suggestion. Maybe, ANONYMOUS would be good enough to point out such an example.

"Disagreements about political OPION"

I'm guessing you mean "opinion"?

"Apart from the fact TATTOS"

That would be "tattoos".

And please learn how to spell PROTESTERS if that's the subject of your post. It makes you look a bit stupid...may be even dumbed down.
