    Some uplifting quotes from speakers at the march:

    UC Berkeley lecturer Hatem Bazian calling for an intifada in the US:

    "Are you angry? [Yeah!] Are you angry? [Yeah!] Are you angry? [Yeah!] Well, we've been watching intifada in Palestine, we've been watching an uprising in Iraq, and the question is that what are we doing? How come we don't have an intifada in this country? Because it seem to me, that we are comfortable in where we are, watching CNN, ABC, NBC, Fox, and all these mainstream... giving us a window to the world while the world is being managed from Washington, from New York, from every other place in here in San Francisco: Chevron, Bechtel, [Carlyle?] Group, Halliburton; every one of those lying, cheating, stealing, deceiving individuals are in our country and we're sitting here and watching the world pass by, people being bombed, and it's about time that we have an intifada in this country that change fundamentally the political dynamics in here. And we know every-- They're gonna say some Palestinian being too radical -- well, you haven't seen radicalism yet!"


    "In light of that, you know, the occupation is a source of tremendous violence against Iraqis. I think we've got to support the resistance; we've got to say that we support attacks against the occupying forces. So I mean -- and you can imagine what kind of an inspiring thing that is for people in Palestine, for people in Bolivia, for people in Argentina, Colombia, all over the world, facing down the barrel of a US-supplied gun. Seeing the people of Iraq fight back, that's what we need."

    "We stand here -- we stand here recognizing that the war on Iraq is illegal, that the war on Iraq is illegal, and that resistance, that resistance against this war is protected by international law. It is legitimate, and that we -- and we in this movement support the resistance against American imperialism by any means necessary."
     
  3. POT DESTROYS BRAINCELLS, IT'S EVIDENT NOW. AND THESE GUYS ARE RUNNING AROUND FREE? HAVEN'T THEY BEEN SENT TO GUANTANAMO YET BY Asscroft ?
     
  4. Hap,

    Seeing that many traitors rooting for the guys killing americans must have made John Kerry a little nostalgic for the good old days with Hanoi Jane.

    I only wish we could put all those assholes on the next plane to Fallujah.
     
  5. That would be a no lose trade.

    Funny how similar the idiocy from the brainless losers at that "march" is to much of what passes for discourse among the more politically confused ET'ers. In fact, I wonder if one or two of our misguided colleagues might have served there as featured speakers to the wasted masses.

    ART? Wags?
     
  6. It just goes to prove that there are people with some "extreme opinions" everywhere - I perhaps should call them "extremists" - but I guess that's reserved for the arabs. (ironic)
    I bet there are some "pave the earth" supporters marching nowadays as well from the old USENET newsgroup alt.pave.the.earth ... Many people with strongly felt agendas choose strong means of expression - sometimes misguided or ignorant with regards to the larger picture. It's hard to change people's opinions, so sometimes people try unrational ploys to inflict verbal/. As long as they're harmless they are part of the free speech of a democracy.

    Some homegrown good judgement skills are also best served chilled, though - just like the beers for enjoying on the beach. :)
     
  7. Ya never know, some of them may volunteer to be human shields again, like during the pre-war. I'm sure the insurgents and al-Sadr's militia would appreciate us sending a few more American hostages.
     
  8. There is absolutely nothing <b>Liberal</b> about supporting Shiite Ayatollahs, Hasan Akbar, and Ahmed Yassin.
    Islamic militants the exact opposite of the Liberal/Hippie/Rainbow/Free Love/ Woman's lib/ egalitarian/ Marxist philosophies these people claim to represent. Bunch of clowns who apparently support ANY philosophy that opposes the Christian Right- apparently even supporting many mutually exclusive philosophies at once.

    I believe the correct term is 'Doublethink'.

    These bozos don't represent Democrats or liberals any more than a march by the Ku Klux Klan or the American Nazi Party represent Hapaboy, AAAintheBeltway or the Republicans. You know, those fine upstanding Compassionate Conservatives marching with signs like "Keep America White", "Send All Blacks Back to Africa", "The Holocaust Never Happened", and "Let's Do the Jewish Problem Right This Time". Fringe is fringe and for the most part it's a blessing that we have the right of Free Speech in this country.
