Daily Kos: Methinks Thou Doth Protest Too Little

Listen, my children, and you will hear
A fucked up tale of greed and fear
24th of September,
two thousand and five
Hardly a man is now alive
Who remembers that famous day and year...

By far, the most oft-repeated complaint I've heard about the 9/24 Protest is that the co-organisers co-opted the "message." ANSWER, to many, tried to hijack the anti-war coalition to pimp their over all agenda.

Yeah? So? Dude, lemme let you in on a secret: it doesn't matter if we're wearing Birkenstocks and patchouli or Ann Taylor and Arpege - there will always be a contingent of Americans who see a war protestor and see a traitor, or a hippie, or a freak.

Fuck them. And fuck the media. Because, and I can't believe I have to tell you this, this protest march wasn't about the media, and it wasn't about convincing anyone of anything. Seriously, come on, what did you think? That George and Dick would look at the numbers and then at each other and say, "Wow, we didn't know so MANY people were against us..." and end the war?
