"WE LOVE THE POLICE STATE"
Mock Pro-War Rally in Milwaukee, Wisconsin
With the anti-war movement in Milwaukee lacking a significant and
consistent showing, when the Milwaukee police department tickets
motorists who drive by anti-war rallys and honk in support of the
protesters, in a time when the war is televised like a sporting
event, a small group of Milwaukee artists, musicians, and outcasts
decided to stage a mock pro-war rally to subvert the right!
The street theater action was committed on April 4th in near blizzard
conditions when 20 "fanatical pro-war" supporters occupied the
opposite side of the downtown street to rally in support of the war
and oppose of the peace activists who gather every Friday for the
weekly peace vigils.
The 20 "pro-war" supporters dressed in suits, waved American Flags,
chanted slogans in fierce support of war, death, and killing. Rush
hour traffic drove by and honked in approval to the flags and signs
that read: "Freedom Is The Enemy", "Bomb My Car", "Get A Brain
Morans", "Iraq Out Of Iraq", "Draft My Child", "Send Our Infants",
"Soccer Moms For Blood", "I Want More Meat", "War Is Peace", "I'm
Pro-Life And Pro-Death", "Stop Reporting The Facts", "Peace Is For
The Afterlife", "Bush Is The Savior", "This Is No Time For Thinking",
"Pro-Bush Lesbian", and "Ask Me About My Baby Killing Honor Student"
among other slogans.
Before the event the local media were called and told about the
"Clear Channel" sponsored pro-war rally. The reporters failed to get
an interview from the pro-war fanatics because every time they
approached the demonstrators they chanted "Boycott The Liberal
Media!". The riot cops were very confused by the heartfelt chants of
"We Love The Police State!".
And the anti-war protesters were perplexed by the "All We Are Saying
Is Give Death A Chance" chorus.
A few on-lookers with their jaws dropped may indeed never visit
Milwaukee again, but all told the "Pro-War" reaction was a smashing
success that demonstrates the kind of gung-ho patriotism that would
make George W. proud.
