I finally saw the 1988 movie “They Live” today and realized what Peter Chamberlin is saying with his blog title‘There Are No Sunglasses’. I also saw a little of the Stewart and Colbert sanity/fear rally and you don’t need the sunglasses to see through it.
The lefty counterpoint to the righty Glenn Beck hijacked Tea Party types. The lefties may be a little more fun but no less propagandizing. It’s breaking us down into two groups that oppose each other as if that’s all there is.
But most of us don’t actually fit into this false duplicity. We’re the ones who don’t like Stewart and Obama, Beck and Palin. Using conventional terms we as individuals are a mix of conservative, liberal, moderate, radical or what ever you want to call it. Sort of ‘mongrels’ that don’t fit what the media wants us to be.
We dressed as renditioned prisoners in the standard fall gitmo orange and Afghan women in Burkas, all with signs stating, “We Didn’t Do It” and one Fed/Operative dressed appropriately with a sign stating, “I Did Do It – National Security Industrial Complex.”
We also paraded around the Mall event with our 9/11 Elephant, “Trudy,” with the banner draped over her back reading, “9/11 Truth – The Elephant in the Room.”
Overwhelmingly, the response was very positive as we posed for thousands of photos alongside one of the Smithsonian museums [side note: for whatever it is worth, was accosted by one of the Smithsonian guards on the sidewalk who had seen one-too-many Night at the Museum franchises, keeping the public sidewalk a "no-walk" zone for some reason even though I had just walked up that same sidewalk moments prior, that the DC police just acquiesced to in that incident - the guard reminded me a lot of the TV junk yard magnate, Fred Sanford, with his over posturing and chest ramming]. We only had a few angry shills, yet lots of positive support amazingly enough right here within the District of Criminals.
