This is an absolutely disgusting image. (Note the photos of additional Bush cabinet mebers in the cockpit CRTs).
I don’t recall the Freepers or any other conservative group making similar images of President Clinton being responsible for the WTC bombing in ’93 or the Oklahoma Federal Building bombing two years later to protest a Democratic presidential convention.
Meanwhile, as we linked to earlier today, Kerry supporters are slugging Bush supporters.
This isn’t how winners act, folks.
Update: Speaking of which, Reuters reports:
Dozens of demonstrators heckled and jeered Broadway theatergoers on Sunday, seeking confrontations with Republican delegates who arrived in New York City to back President Bush (news – web sites)’s reelection bid.
Police arrested up to 60 protesters who assembled in Times Square at dusk chanting anti-Bush slogans after hundreds of thousands had marched in Manhattan to decry the president’s policies before the Republican convention begins on Monday.
But individual protesters kept tensions high, some of them hissing or cursing at well-heeled couples heading to popular Broadway musicals like “Thoroughly Modern Millie” and “Fiddler on the Roof.”
“Republican murderers go home and kill your babies!” one young man yelled at theatergoers, a far cry from local public service messages urging New Yorkers to “make nice” to party delegates in the city for the four-day convention, where Bush will be nominated for another four-year term.
A second protester shoved a middle-aged woman in a black cocktail dress, shouting:
“B****, go home! We don’t want you here!” At one point, police cordoned off a city block after several dozen demonstrators jeered and razzed the incoming audience.
“We were talking to delegates as they came by. We were very calm,” said Brendan, 23, an organic farmer from upstate New York, adding he was thumbing his nose at the crowd with other hecklers before police intervened. “You do anything a little out of the ordinary here and they arrest you.”
Protest actions in front of New York theaters were some of the few taking place outside permitted demonstration areas.
The wild card in protests expected later this week is whether self-styled anarchists try to wreak havoc in the city with unannounced actions despite unprecedented security.
