White House reportedly behind protests(14 posts)

White House reportedly behind protestsContinental
Feb 27, 2003 7:58 AM
Anonymous sources claim that a report will soon surface accusing the Bush White House of masterminding the anti-war protest. According to the inside source, the report will detail the operation's objectives and tactics. There are believed to be three key objectives. 1. Provide a stark contrast between liberties and freedoms in the U.S. and the brutal dictatorship of Iraq. 2. Afford the President an opportunity to appear strong and resolute in the face of dissent. 3. Generate personal sympathy for the President by making him the object of vulgar, disrespectful attacks.

Reportedly, it was very difficult to get sensible patriotic, Republicans to act like buffoons and carry asinine placards in public. Operatives were finally convinced to proceed when they were provided sophisticated disguises to preserve their dignity. Clearly, President Bush is accruing huge benefits from these protests, as planned. The White House staff is especially delighted that the real buffoons are now marching in the streets, blabbering on TV news shows, chattering on radio talk shows, and writing drivel on internet forums.
Always glad to oblige the White House staff. nmOldEdScott

Quite a chip on your shoulder there mate. What's with your Frenchophobia? Were you traumatized in French class when you were little?

Also, as I have stated before on this board, the French opposition to the U.S. began shortly after WWII. Humiliated at their rapid defeat by the Germans, to improve their "significance" in the world, they SPECIFICALLY said that they would oppose us, as a counter balance to the U.S.

Heck, I don't want to wish them any ill will, but I think the thrashing they take here in the U.S. is completely warranted.

Aw, come on, admit it: You made this up just so you could see "sensible" and "Republicans" in the same sentence.
But if that moron needs a "vulgar, disrespectful attack," you know where to find me.
the conspiracy is much deeper than thatDougSloan

Sources indicate that it is not only the protesters Bush is manipulating, but Saddam himself! In an attempt to appear the to be the "leader of the free world" and distinguish himself from Clinton, who never had the opportunity for a good war and legacy, Bush has cut a deal with Saddam for a lifetime retirement on some U.S. possession island with hordes of concubines and personal attendants, all for Saddam's willingness to flaunt the U.N. directives and badmouth the U.S., then take a few hits for the team before disappearing to the secret island, while reporters are fed information that he was killed in a bombing raid on one of his palaces. Pure genious, and a win-win for everyone.

Course he has to share the island with Osmma Whats-His-Name. The only means of escape is to build their own concrete canoe.

After they accumlate a few of these guys, they'll turn it into a reality program, "Survivor Island, Dictators and Terrorists." Instead of "voting off," though, they execute.

Reportedly, it's the same people who came up with Dick Cheney's energy policy, so I'm sure the truth will never see the light of day...
