The Moonbats Answer the Call-to-Arms

As I posted earlier, I accidentally stumbled upon the Los Angeles "Peace" protest, which the LA Times said drew around 15,000. I don't know how many were actually there protesting, and how many were just gawkers, like myself. I did quickly identify the Protest Warriors by their trademark signs. I was told by one of these brave souls that about 20 of them were there to protest the protestors. Just 20 in a sea of thousands.


I arrived on the tail end of it, in the latter part of the afternoon. But there was still a sizable crowd and much ranting on the microphone and from the podium.

Originally, after work, I had decided to drive out to Little Tokyo to pick up food and a monthly subscription I have at a Japanese bookstore. While walking from an ATM, I noticed quite a bit of police presence on 2nd Street...then a few strays with signs, and passed a guy wearing a t-shirt that read "1900 dead....How many more?". I identified the epicenter of this dissent, quickly doubled back 3 blocks for my digital camera in the car, and decided food and my magazine could wait. I headed over to the noise.

Some of the most laughable signs were those tying Bush-blame to Katrina....my favorite being a t-shirt that read, "Make levees, not war."

Not sure exactly what area I was in....it was out toward City Hall. I think we were on Los Angeles Street, and the road was blocked off. Anyway, I'll let the pix speak for
themselves:

A college Republican voices his sarcasm.

















A lone pair of Protest Warriors trail a gang of Che Guaverra fans....one of them had a flag with that bastard's infamous image on it.



















I was aiming my camera at the sign in the back...then my camera drifted to that pretty girl in the foreground....so I ended up snapshotting half-and-half.

There were some other pretty girls- your stereotypical pot-smoking, liberal peaceniks; their vulgar signs and moonbat sloganeering were a major turn-off, though.


Political Teen has a video of Cindy Sheehan's speech in DC.

Michelle Malkin has photos and comments.

California Conservative weighs in. Freedom Eden blogs on Gold Star Mother's Day and the exploitation by Cindy Shenanigans of that status name recognition.

Global Cop From D.C. is live photo-blogging. My favorite.



Oh, look! It's Kanye West! Still Stuck on stupid...

Great pix!! So many of of the anti-american signs etc., are actually laughable. I am keeping a close eye on the group in my area as to when they'll be demonstrating again here. I will be there, even if I am only one in a handful.

Thanks again and keep up the good work on keeping us posted on what's happening in your neck of the woods!

"Leftist for free speech. Now shut up you Republican fascists." Ha ha ha, I can't stop laughing at that one! Do you know if that was sarcasm or did the one who made that sign just not see the irony?

"I've never seen anarchism and communism get along so well." Uh, I don't know about that one. Is it for Bush or against him?

Your first question, Mark...y'know, I'm not sure and I wish I did. It could well be sarcasm, as he was definitely mingled with the Protest Warrior crew...but then so were some of the Leftists, carrying on intense debates, and holding their anti-war/anti-Bush placards.

As for your 2nd question, yes, that sign was pro-Bush and definite sarcasm.

Great pics, for someone who just stumbled onto them you got a great roundup of the typical leftist idiocy.

Socialism and Liberation?

Interesting sign...

I wonder which design company the organization purchases their signs?

Or is that way too much capitalism for them?

Yea, great pics! You got one of me (white shirt, grey camera bag, next to guy with "help, Im surrounded..")

Umm..Pretty much all of the signs that look like they were done five minutes before the protest are the College Republicans (that answers your question about whether the guy with the "I've never seen anarchists and..." sign)

I like your blog, keep it going. Check out mine if you can...The Young Conservatives

Cute as she may be, the National Lawyers Guild are an ugly bunch for sure. Commies to the core, and what's worse, in positions of (relative) power.
