Dispatch From Bizarro World

United For Peace And Justice (gotta love the names these wackos come up with) plans to install a new US government next month:

For Nat Turner, For Martin and Coretta, For all the Torture and Assassination in Afghanistan, Iraq, Haiti and many others - We will not allow the Slave Holders that Still Prevail in this Country to Rule us any longer.

They need to work on their capitalization--it's not quite random enough to reveal their full kookery.

Imprisonment and torture based on race, religion, resources or region is no different than the slavery we sought to abolish years ago. The Administration is Criminal and if they will not step down, we must storm in.

When was the last time they "stormed in" to protest any of the real torture and imprisonment based on race and religion by Middle Eastern governments? No, instead they're going to storm the White House, in protest of a policy that has actually ended much of the imprisonment and torture under Saddam Hussein.

They hope to have allies:

We are calling on all Member Nations of the U.N.,

Even Israel?

All Representatives and Justices in the World Court and International Criminal Courts, all soldiers and CIA agents and government officials who have been blackmailed by the dictators to incarcerate Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld.

Ignoring the ambiguous grammar here (government officials were blackmailed by the dictators to incarcerate Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld? Which dictators were those? When did this happen? You'd think it would have made the news...) are they proposing to have a trial, or just incarcerate them? Or incarcerate them until trial? I'm confused.

They have a plan for a new government.

The Political Cooperative will put a new government in place that is comprised of people from Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and all the organizations that have finally made us aware of the truth of the savage practices and illegal policies of our government in assassinating our own officials as well as people throughout the world who oppose their criminal activity.

Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch? In what way are they qualified to run a government? These people are amazing.

We need all of you to save U.S. citizens and Global Victims from their ongoing criminal activity. We are calling on the military, police, citizens and religious organizations to stand with us and help us to bring democracy back to the United States and by doing so, free the world from the wrath, occupation, theft, torture, blackmail and assassination by the Criminals in the United States Government.

Right. We'll "bring democracy back" (when did it go missing, anyway?) by storming the White House, removing duly elected officials and putting unelected people from Amnesty International in their place.

What they have done all over the world is much worse than what Saddam Hussein has done, so why are they not in jail too?

Note that we're supposed to take all of this lunacy as a given--they feel no need to explain or substantiate it in any way.

They have admitted to international and national crimes, so why have they not been taken to Court too?

Because they haven't admitted to crime of either kind, perhaps? Is this part of what some (laughably) call the "Reality-based Community"? And seriously, isn't this a call for insurrection? I suspect that these people could be jailed for this, particularly during war, if anyone actually took them seriously. But these types are generally harmless, being afraid of guns and all. It should be an amusing show on the Ides of March.

There's no parody like self-parody.

We were discussing terms like treason, sedition, traitor etc. last week. We went from opinions to legal definitions to living documents and around again.

This my friends and fellow howlers does not need our debate. When you threaten at sometime, plan to at sometime, set a date to at sometime and publish the plan and ask for help, its treason.

The first person who makes even the slighest move to enter a building they have no reason to be in should be charged with treason.

This is not free speech, this is shouting "fire" in a crowded theater. People get hurt when there is a threat of revolution, hopefully it won't happen.

I always saw the "Reality-based" term in the same light as "Based on a True Story" on made-for-TV movies.

Posted by Big D at February 26, 2006 05:44 PM

Sounds like these guys and Bruce Gagnon need to hook up. They could compare notes.

Posted by Jim Rohrich at February 26, 2006 06:42 PM

Round 'em up and send 'em to Gitmo. If I were a terrorist and had to listen to that for a while, I'd start talking.

Posted by AST at February 26, 2006 11:18 PM

I suspect the whole goal of this crowd is to be arrested before any of their crazy public goals are attempted (not that they actually plan to do that).

Posted by Paul Dietz at February 27, 2006 05:08 AM

Paul, I certainly agree. I don't think they intend to overthrow the government. That takes armed resistance and most of these kooks don't believe in guns.

But staging a peaceful protest is ALL we are garaunteed. We cross the line when we state openly that we intend to install a new government.

Posted by Steve at February 27, 2006 06:24 AM

WOW.....just wow.... just when you think they can't top themselves they come up with a new way to perfect the Circular Firing Squad.... I bow to their superior lunacy.

Obviously someone is going to be losing their computer privileges and having their Ritalin dosage upped as soon as mommy finds out what her little darling has been up to with her credit card...

Heh. Bring it. If I could ask for just one thing that would insure a Republican White House in '08 and a permanent Republican majority in Congress, this is it.

Karl Rove, your pimp hand is strong indeed.

Posted by DaveP. at February 27, 2006 02:20 PM

Thanks, Rand for taking the effort to Fisk something that should stand on its own as ridiculous. Sadly, somtimes this is necessary. Sigh.

Posted by schaffman at February 27, 2006 02:36 PM

Should they actually attempt it, rather than just shrieking for attention, we only need three words: free-fire zone.

Posted by Jeff Medcalf at February 27, 2006 06:51 PM

You know what really pisses me off? It's that they'd never have the balls to really try something. If they did, I'd make the trip to D.C. with a lawn chair and a big bag of popcorn to enjoy the results. Oh, and a megaphone. Gotta have something with which to cheer on the Secret Service.

Team Moonbat, meet Team Bradley. Team Moonbat has won the toss and elected to receive.

I try not to descend to ad hominem remarks, but there don't sound to be very many hominems posting here. What a sad bunch of meat-beating going on here. Transterrestrial,eh? Guess I was expecting someone taller.

Posted by ziply at February 28, 2006 06:20 PM

Guess we were expecting a commenter with something intelligent to say, "ziply." Probably too much to expect, with a name like that.

Posted by Rand Simberg at February 28, 2006 06:37 PM

Very short hominem bites zipinem. Still expecting someone taller. ;D

Posted by ziply at February 28, 2006 06:41 PM

Actually, I was waiting for a substantive topic. You kids sound much like the watching-Fox-News website where short beings spend the entire day decrying Bill O'Reilly.

I was expecting satire, wit, substance. This is supposed to be the right wing. Alas, only wilted meat.

Posted by ziply at February 28, 2006 06:44 PM

Well, that also begs the question of what happened to ziplys 1-122. Apparently the factory hasn't gotten it right yet. ;-)

This is supposed to be the right wing.

Well, that's your problem. It isn't supposed to be "right wing." It's just my site. But you're probably one of those simpletons who thinks that anything they don't agree with a hundred percent of the time is "right wing."

Posted by Rand Simberg at February 28, 2006 06:52 PM

You know, for a guy who claims that he tries not to descend into the ad hominem, ziply doesn't seem to be trying all that hard.

Posted by Peter at February 28, 2006 06:54 PM

Wasn't this the plot for a South Park episode??
