The Anti-War Rallies Of The Bush Years In 20 Pics


It has been enlightening to see how differently the anti-war rallies and Tea Parties have been covered by the mainstream media. The anti-war rallies were given prominent coverage and the radical sentiment was hidden away from the public. On the other hand, positive news about the Tea Parties is buried by the MSM and the ugliest voices are put front and center.

However, here’s a reality check: Radical sentiment was much more prevalent at the anti-war rallies and it was much more representative of the participants’ opinions. You can tell that’s the case because while offensive signs and conspiracy theories at Tea Parties have frequently been condemned by conservatives, you almost never heard liberals disavowing the offensive signage and comments at anti-war rallies.

What offensive signage and comments you may ask? Well, I’m going to post some of my favorite pics from the liberal rally coverage on RWN over the last few years and the next time someone calls the Tea Party movement “racist, “anti-Semitic,” “radical,” etc, because of some ridiculous sign or dumb comment, point that person back to this post:
