The assorted moonbats of the leftwing fringe have hit the town of Denver.
Conspicuously absent from their anti-war protest was any mention of the Russia’s invasion of Georgia, but they always have plenty to say about the war against Islamofascists responsible for 9/11 and subsequent attacks against U.S. Soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. Russia invaded a democracy with an elected government. Iraq violated numerous U.N. Resolutions after signing a surrender treaty in 1991, one of which, Res. 1441, authorized force and removal of his regime if he did not comply. He didn’t, and suffered the consequences.
They save their idiotic rants for Democracies in the West.
More than a thousand protesters marched to the gates of the Pepsi Center today, temporarily closing down access to the site of the Democratic National Convention. Protesters from the Recreate 68 anti-war rally and march briefly sat down, but dispersed peacefully when police asked them to disband. There were no arrests.
Police officers, some on mountain bikes, some on horses, escorted the marchers from the steps of the Capitol down Colfax Avenue and Speer Boulevard to the Pepsi Center.
“No cops, no KKK, no fascist USA,” some marchers chanted as they walked in the bright, noonday sun.
Organizers reconsidered at the last moment not to march across Civic Center, which had filled with conventioneers, marketers and opportunists with booths and tents. Instead, they marched under police escort down Colfax Avenue to Speer Boulevard, then turned left on Auraria Parkway to 9th Street, where the march ended.
They chickened out? I was hoping they’d stampede.

Recreate 68 and other protest groups said months ago they would occupy Civic Center park in violation of the host-committee permit. Recreate 68’s Larry Hales says early threats to take Civic Center were meant to start a dialogue.
They initiate ‘dialogue’ by making threats. Well, I’m sure it got law enforcement talking.
Cindi al-Sheehani made her appearance.
Earlier today, at a speech at the Capitol rally, anti-war protester Cindy Sheehan urged a crowd of 500 people to support alternative candidates.
“It’s been three years since I camped out in Crawford, Texas, and the country is still mired in war in the Middle East,” she told the cheering crowd on the west steps this morning.
Sheehan, whose son was killed as a soldier in Iraq, became known as the “Peace Mom” after she camped for 26 days outside of President Bush’s ranch in Crawford, hoping to get an audience with him.
She’s still prostituting her brave son’s sacrifice to the Left.
“Neither Republicans nor Democrats represent the people,” she said. “They’ve taken away more of our freedoms. It’s now easier to spy on us. This convention is sponsored by AT&T. What does that tell you?” she said to wild cheers.
Wait a minute, she means to say that even with ideological comrades like Pelosi, Reed, Murtha, Durbin, Kucinich, McDermott, and Obama in the House and Senate, that she’s not ‘represented’??
Quite frankly, I don’t think AT&T or the government is interested in the democrats’ phone sex.
And guess who else showed up?
Ron Kovic, the anti-war activist whose paralyzing injuries in Vietnam were chronicled in his book “Born on the Fourth of July,” told the crowd, “We refuse to be silent … we are going to speak our minds. The whole world is watching.”
Yep, 60’s redux. Yawn.
They took the time to assault a Fox News crew:
At one point, demonstrators confronted a Fox News camera crew, screaming that Fox is biased in its coverage. Amid chants of “Fox has got to go”, and “Fox, go home,” state troopers moved in and separated the most vocal protesters from the camera crew. That same crew was confronted again at the end of the march on Auraria Parkway. Police ushered the crew away.
And this comment is a doozy:
68 co-founder Mark Cohen called presumptive Democratic nominee Barack Obama part of an imperialist system.
You have got to be kidding.
Obama has even openly stated his admiration for brutal Communist regimes:
Candidate Barack Obama has put himself “on record” praising the communist government of China, suggesting that the United States should aspire to do as the communists do, and “invest” in our “infrastructure,” the way the Chinese government has done in Beijing.
While at a campaign stop in Chester, Virginia, in a moment of off-the-cuff spontaneity, Obama stated “everybody’s watching what’s going on in Beijing right now and the Olympics. Think about the amount of money that China has spent on infrastructure. Their ports, their train systems, their airports are all vastly superior to us now, which means if you’re a corporation deciding where to do business, you’re starting to think, Beijing looks like a pretty good option.”
This picture demonstrates their complete ignorance of a system they admire:
Obama’s leftwing radical roots and ideology aren’t quite enough for these nihilist turds? My gawd.
Communism resulted in the deaths of only 100,000,000 people. Let’s give it another chance.
