Early yesterday morning, Cliff May at The Corner asked: “Won’t it be interesting to see whether those gathered in Scotland to protest the G8 will — or will not — protest the terrorist bombings?”
Well, I headed over to the UK’s Indymedia G8 2005 site to see what exactly the protesters did and didn’t do. It’s a mixed bag: part paranoia, part whine, part clown act. We’ll get to those clowns shortly.
Soon after news of the 7/7 attacks broke, this post titled “Al-Queda (sic) or CIA? We Report….You decide.,..” on the Indymedia G8 site went up:
Over the years we have seen the threat of terror used and acknowledged by outgoing U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge. Now it appears that it is possible that old plans from the 60s may have been dusted off, re-vamped and put into place today to bolster the approval rating of George Bush (which was in the 30 percent range). The attacks in London also benefitted the Bush Administration by taking the issues of Global Climate Change and Debt Relief, Fair Trade and African Poverty off of the front burner at the G8 summit just when 7 of the 8 nations appeared to be reaching consensus on those issues. George Bush as usual was the lone desenter.
So when one looks at the attacks of the past 24 hrs one should view them with the story below in mind and ask the question: “Who has the most to gain from an attack during the G8? Bin Laden? Or George Bush?”
The G8 protesters did hold a vigil for the London victims, but couldn’t bring themselves to keep their moonbat politics out of it. Check out their memorial banners:
“Vigil for London victims and those of war + poverty“
“In the name of peace for victims of violence everywhere, we’re thinking of you, London +Iraq etc etc“
Et cetera, et cetera?
Fortunately, the 7/7 attacks didn’t ruin the G8 protesters’ party atmosphere completely:
The Eco-camp is an incr[e]dible imaginative, creative space with a very empowering atmosphere. When we arrived a band from Ghana started singing and drumming and the kids have organised a little protest with the Rebel Clown Army. They all danced around.
Menawhile dinner was ready – Anarchist Teapot cooked lovely potatoes with tomatoes and veggie mash and I really overfilled myself.
The day was proudly capped off by scuffles between the police and a bunch of clowns. Literally. Something called the Insurgent Rebel Clown Army descended on the summit to wreak havoc. Click on this photo of the group in past action:
And click here for a complete, freaky gallery.
You might think that given the blood shed in London at the hands of a self-styled “insurgent” army, the pinheads of the “Insurgent Rebel Clown Army” and their fellow circus travelers would feel compelled to put away their playthings and grow up for a few hours. But no.
We knew these selfish obstructionists to winning the war against radical Islam had no brains (“F**k G8!”).
We now know they have no shame.
Update: Much more from Charmaine Yoest, who has been providing terrific blog reportage from the G8 Summit and London.
