Paris, 13-AUG-2006 – formerly a part of western civilization.
Taken by Hervé et Carine who tripped across this mess while on their way to the BHV of all places to pick up some kitchen stuff.
“Peaceniks” with Lebanese, Hizballah, and Palestinian flags. Flags from the former Iraq and the Soviet Unions, and flags with the image of Mao Tse Tung, of course. Cruise over to E-nough to see what these parading clowns think of “Peace”. Even though they only ever marched for peace as a pretense, they’ve shown an amazing lack of commitment to it, and show little more than an outright advocacy of Jihad.
Hizballah and UJFP – “Hey! You got chocolate in my peanut butter!”
We're all about peace and love, man.
Love is... a warm gun.
Some dude named Erik (does anyone know who this guy is?) also reports that the usual hijinx and antics were also on display. Especially the tactic where they pretend to be victims themselves. Apart from the fact that these folks are a gold mine for Psychiatrists because they’re trying to make other peoples’ politics personal, there is the phenomenon of tactics like that looking just plain stupid:
I chanced upon the sister demonstration in Paris. On Rue de Rivoli, posters of the head of Hezbollah as well as Hugo Chávez were carried. At one point, one of the chants the demonstrators yelled went "Hezbollah! Résistance! Hezbollah! Résistance! Hezbollah! Résistance! Hezbollah! Résistance!"I still have to wonder if these dial-a-mob types ever get tired of doing the same chants, marches, and routine over and over. Why haven’t their message or their methods varied in 30 years? Haven’t they ever heard of “customizing” the protest to some actual current event? or, say, “common sense”, or maybe consolidating the inconsistency of what they always seem to demand from others?
Also, a number of demonstrators, many of them kids as young as 5 or 6, paraded carrying signs saying "Je n'ai plus de…": "I have no more a home." "I have no more a sister." (I had to snicker when I saw one person carrying a sign saying "I have no more a grand-father". She was at least 65 years old.)
Or maybe the immorality of their demands? Suddenly, they believe that ending violence is bad, the U.N. is biased toward Israel, and Iran and Syria are little darlings who couldn't find Lebanon on a map.The fuse is lit!
