Michael Fumento will be my Blog Talk Radio guest tomorrow at noon.
Here’s Michael’s latest post,
“Thousands march to Pentagon to protest Iraq war” was the typical headline about the rally in Washington on St. Patrick’s day. Well, I got there just after the march ended and I’d put it at hardly more than a thousand. Indeed, I was able to photograph the whole crowd – without benefit of a wide angle lens. There were even numerous buses indicating they had imported New Yorkers for the celebration. True, it was unseasonably cold for D.C. but isn’t that part of the point? Just how committed to a cause are you if a nip in the air is enough to keep your tushy by the fireplace? As to the participants, they were exactly what you’d expect: aging hippies, representatives of all sorts of Communist organizations, 9/11 conspiracy theorists, illegal immigration supporters, Islamist extremists, and sufferers of Bush Derangement Syndrome. Boy, were they suffering! But don’t take my word for it. Check out my photoset and see for yourself that four years into the war there’s still no such thing as a true Iraq protest movement.
Go take a look.
