Canadian Moonbats Converge As Bush Arrives
Considering that the 'peaceful' Canadian protesters have been threatening Bush with violence, it's not surprising to see them show up again. Hot on the heels to Bush's visit to Canada, the half-bathed professional protesters have come out in revolutionary force to denounce Herr Bush's revolting presence on Canadian soil. Or at least that's what they want to believe. Early anti-Bush demos fizzle in Canada.
OTTAWA (AFP) - Hopes for early mass protests in the streets of Ottawa on the eve of Tuesday's visit by US President George W. Bush (news - web sites) fizzled out, as journalists outnumbered demonstrators.Nothing is more entertaining than watching idiots embarass themselves. My question is: Why is the media even covering this non-story? There's more reporters there than there are protesters!
A loose coalition of groups opposed to just about everything Bush supports had promised two demonstrations hours before Bush was due to jet into Ottawa Tuesday aboard Air Force One.
The first demonstration -- of Palestinians and sympathisers of the Palestinian cause opposed to Washington's support of Israel -- attracted less than 40 demonstrators.
According to a quick head count by journalists, the protest attracted 39 demonstrators, 42 journalists and television crew members and three police officers.
Do these people even know what they're protesting, anyway? Do they know any of Bush's actual positions aside from the fact that he's an oil hungering warmongering tyrant? Judging from the various posters, I wouldn't bet on it.
A second, ostensibly larger, demonstration scheduled for the midst of the evening rush hour -- was called by a group calling itself Students Against Bush.
Nobody turned up. Further protests however were expected on Tuesday.
Efforts to contact protest organizers were unsuccessful, with the phone numbers listed by organizers remaining unanswered.
Unsurprisingly, Parrish, most likely having nothing to do (how different is that from the other protesters?) after being booted out of the Liberal party, is speaking as well. These guys are in opposition to everything Bush supports. Everthing. Tax cuts. The war on terrorism. Capitalism. Maybe somebody should let them in on the big secret that Bush supports breathing air.
Later in the day, the size of the protest significantly increased, of course, giving one brave soul the opportunity to venture into the fracas to take photos for the perusal of the morbidly curious. And then there's the throng of protesters swarming around Parliament Hill.
Not all Canadians were involved were nuts, though. Elsewhere in Ottawa, a smaller entourage of Canadians waving Canadian and American flags side by side welcomed Bush as he passed through.
The U.S. president also made a tongue-in-cheek reference to the supporters he saw among the protesters as his motorcade drove through Ottawa. "I'd like to thank the Canadian people who came out to wave, with all five fingers, for their hospitality," he said.
