Here are some more images from today’s antiwar protests. They took place worldwide, but the biggest ones were in Washington and San Francisco and were organized and run by A.N.S.W.E.R.–about which, see below. The Washington Post and the San Francisco Chronicle covered the demonstrations, and both newspapers acknowledged that they were organized by A.N.S.W.E.R. Neither offered any hint that A.N.S.W.E.R. is a Communist front organization; both made the demonstrations sound wholesome and all-American.
This butterfly guy was in San Francisco; likewise the group below. Note the signs, and compare them to the signs in the post below about A.N.S.W.E.R.
Here are shots of the crowd at the Washington Mall, where Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton appeared, and a group in San Francisco that included Martin Sheen and Joan Baez:
There were also some counter-protesters. The group in Washington, which seemed to be especially large, included this former Marine. He still looks pretty formidable to me.
I like the sentiment expressed by this woman, too.
So far, the main story of the day appears to be the failure of the mainstream media to cover the disreputable nature of the leaders of the demonstrations. It will be interesting to see whether the bloggers will shame them into noticing that the antiwar forces of today are simply the pro-Communist forces of yesterday–only now they are pro-Saddam Hussein and North Korea.
