Join the movement!

Ideas to make your voice heard, via Instanpundit and Nukevet.

Join Moveon.org's Million Modem March on Washington.

Well, sort of. Let's just say we are co-opting their latest peace march.

On February 26th, every Senate office will receive a call every minute from a constituent, as they receive a simultaneous flood of faxes and e-mail. Hundreds of thousands of people from across the country will send the collective message: Don't Attack Iraq We support the war on Iraq. Liberation for Iraqis now!.

Remember to follow Bitter Bitch's Rules of Etiquette.

Did you write that date down? February 26....good.

When you've put that in your date book, head over to Shark Blog and be prepared to get your mayo jars ready.

Most importantly, I am also organizing as a counter-protest a "Virtual March on Hollywood", where the virtual marchers send jars of mayonnaise to the various celebrity spokeshairdos for the Virtual March on Washington -- Janeane Garofalo, Martin Sheen, Mike Farrell, Anjelica Huston, et al.

Why jars of mayonnaise? So these actors can refill their heads when they start to leak.

There's a difference between being useful and being a useful idiot.


For reasons I explain more fully on my own blog, I'd think twice before posting anything on MoveOn.org's site. My experience with these guys is that the actual content of your message won't be counted, only the fact that you are "one more person" who showed up for their virtual peace rally.

Rather than use Moveon.org's form, we could all just send our own faxes and emails supporting the war effort to our own representatives.

instapundit had this great post today:

Peace in Middle Earth in our time

MINAS TIRITH (Gondor News Network) - Thousands of peace activists took to the streets of Minas Tirith and other cities of Middle Earth today to protest what they termed a rush to war with Mordor.

“We need more time for diplomacy,” said a key member of the Middle-Earth Security Council, Saruman the White. “I am not convinced by the evidence presented by my esteemed colleague, Gandalf the Grey, or that the Dark Lord Sauron presents an imminent danger to the peoples of the West.”

Finally, a celebrity has to answer hard questions!!! Bravo to Fox News for not letting Jeneane Garofolo who seems to be a resident of Never Never Land spout her unreal peace-nik mantra. I, for one, do not care what a celeb thinks.....their ideas on issues have zero value......how can they have a realistic view of life for the every day person when they are treated continually with kid gloves?? There are people being TORTURED in Iraq.....Hussein is GUILTY of unimaginable war crimes....and she suggests that we give Hussein a little more time. A little more time for what? To rape more women and children? To crush the feet of little girls? To savagely beat fathers? These atrocities are well documented by Amnesty International and by the suffereing Iraqis themselves! I hear in my mind the cry of children begging to be freed from this torture

Maybe Osama will do us all a favor and detonate a nuke in Hollywood.

No one thinks that Saddam Hussein needs to be given another chance, PEACEFUL ending of this NON EMERGENCY needs another chance. The only way I will ever support non-thinker, knee-jerk hawks is if I see YOU volunteer to go kill civilians AND THEN fess up that if this is good enough for one, let's go on and kick the ass of ever bad guy out there. There are a LOT of people being tortured and murdered and the US is doing nothing, saying nothing and ignoring their plight. This is pure puffery on Bush (and your) part. There is NOTHING noble about this kind of war. Go ask your grandfather about going to war. I value his opinon far more. He DID protect the world from subjegation and HIS generation isn't rushing to do this.
Freaking Rush-heads. If you had any balls OR brains you'd be asking a helluva lot of questions.

Kyrie eleison

Last week when I predicted that the virtual counter-rally would backfire, I was privately hoping to be proved wrong. Unfortunately, that hasn't happened yet.
