Pictures and Videos From Anti-War March in Hollywood

Posted in Main Blog (All Posts), Pictures, Videos on March 17th, 2007 4:00 pm by HL

A huge crowd turned out today for The Anti-War march and rally in Hollywood. It was a beautiful day and the crowd was pumped. Speakers included Martin Sheen, Congresswoman Maxine Waters, who delivered a message that her fellow congressmen were confused about what to do about Iraq. Specifically Bush’s request for a fundamental spending in the amount of another 100 Million Dollars. (or was it 100 Billion?) Waters urged everyone to write their congressman and tell them to vote no on Bush’s latest war spending request. Musical Performances were put on by Jackson Browne, Ben Harper, and Ozomatli. Here are some pics and videos I shot of the afternoon.

    Look at all the traitors. Some day soon we will rond you up and put you in slave labor camps you lousy yellow cowards.

  2. ayeshahaqqiqa Says:

    Thank you for publishing the photos and videos of Americans who believe in exercising their Constitutional rights!

  3. SC Says:

    International Answer? hahahahaa More communist losers.

  4. Virtual Chicano Says:

    Outstanding work!

  5. Common Man Says:

    If these people would’ve been supporting the President and our troops all this time, the war would be over and Baghdad would be the envy of Hollywood. I remember a time when Americans did support the President in times like these.

  6. Trajan Says:

    WHY would those who criticise the bunch of Neocon traitors in the White House be labelled ‘Communist’ ?

    Is Chuck Hagel a Communist ?

    Is John Warner a Communist ?

    They BOTH criticised this stupid war ….

    Communism is a system whereby the government owns ALL means of production, and there are NO protests which are demanding a change to a communistic system of government today …

    Typical right wing LIES to try to hide from the facts: Their boy, Prince George, and his regent, Darth Cheney, LIED our great nation into an unjustifiable war, and YOU, you right wing LIAR, are JUST as responsible as they are for all this ….

    YOU are the traitor, you right wing hack …. Those people demonstrating today are PATRIOTS who love their country …..

    Get it right ….

  7. Trajan Says:

    To The Common Man:

    I would gladly support a justified war, and this is not such a thing …

    There is no reason to support the insane policies of a crazy and dangerous man like George Bush …. To do so would be unamerican ….

  8. Common Man Says:

    You and those of your ilk have spun George W. Bush into a crazy and dangerous man with your witless and unfounded innuendo. You say the war is not justified but refuse to accept the fact that your liberal/democrat representatives voted for it based upon the same info that was available to the president (the source of which derived primarily from Clinton’s failed intelligence operations). You refuse to acknowledge the fact that 9 million Iraqis voted for freedom and democracy! You refuse to accept the other nations that are supporting us in Iraq. You refuse to acknowledge the number of Al Queda terrorists that have been killed or captured in Iraq. You are driven by one, just one, precept…a deep hate for President Bush. You would give up this country in a minute if it validated your hate for that one man.

  9. Common Man Says:

    Hillary and Hussein

    Hillary: The one of us who wins the nomination won’t really have to do anything. Hollywood will give us the election!

    Hussein: Yep, a great formula for success! Just take a dab of communism and stir in a whole schitload of Bush-hate and you got it, baby!

  10. Common Man Says:

    I’ve glanced over the board here and must say I’m more than a little amazed. I was under the impression that everything written had the F-word as every fourth word…as was the case in the Oscar-winning “The Departed”. I thought it was prerequisite to all Hollywood communications…letters, posts, movie scripts…etc.!

  11. Trajan Says:

    Witless and unfounded ? …

    The proof is in the pudding …. The evidence is quite clear; except to those who choose to hide from the facts ….

    1) “You say the war is not justified but refuse to accept the fact that your liberal/democrat representatives voted for it based upon the same info that was available to the president (the source of which derived primarily from Clinton’s failed intelligence operations).”

    > I regret that my Democratic representatives in congress voted to allow this travesty to occur. Nearly to a person, they have withdrawn their support, as have a large number of GOP congress members …. The mere fact that someone in congress votes for something doesnt make it a correct position: non sequitur fallacy

    > Those in congress were bombarded with NONSENSE from this administration which most in the DIA and CIA did not agree with nor support as fact. The BS cooked up by the OSP, Cheney, Feith, Perle, Gaffney, Ken Adelman and their ilk were absolute LIES. They stovepiped their information without critical analysis because such analysis showed they were WRONG. I do not blame congress for believing in the lies, because they had a right to expect the truth from a president who hasnt spoken and truth since he took office.

    > Clinton’s intelligence organs did NOT assert Hussein was re-initiating his nuclear weapons program, and what was found after the invasion more or less follows what SHOULD have been found, according to the reports by Hans Blix and el Baredei. They were proven correct, while Bush and his liar friends were discovered to be just that: liars ….

    > Clinton left office in 2000, and gave the new WH staff critical information about the threats we REALLY faced in 2001: The Bush WH simply ignored them, and in fact REDUCED anti-terror efforts by 58 MILLION dollars (had to pay for the tax cuts …) …. I suppose it would be a huge waste of breath to point out that OUR great nation was attacked; NOT when Clinton was in office, but when BUSH was in office …

    It was BUSH who failed to protect America …. Clinton cannot be blamed ….

    2) “You refuse to acknowledge the fact that 9 million Iraqis voted for freedom and democracy!”

    > 9 Million Iraqis voted for Democracy, and I wish they get their wish, but that alone doesnt justify committing the blood and treasure of OUR great nation to a war. The justification for war has a high threshold, and that threshold was NOT crossed …

    I suppose it would be more wasted breath to point out that some 2 BILLION human beings live in UNDEMOCRATIC China (and they ARE for REAL communists), but there are no demands from YOU or any other Busheviks to march into Bejing and start cleansing neighborhoods of communist chinese : Why not ? …. If you are SO dedicated to bringing Democracy to those who do not possess it, then why arent you clamoring for an invasion of China ?

    Hell: Cuba is a mere 90 damn miles away : WHY not invade Cuba ?

    You and this WH seem inconsistent in your demands to bring Democracy across the world …. why ? … Because this isnt really about that …. is it ?

    3) “You refuse to acknowledge the number of Al Queda terrorists that have been killed or captured in Iraq.”

    > al Qaeda (not Al Queda) did NOT exist in Iraq, ever ….. The Baathists, as awful as they were, (and they were) did NOT allow a concentration of religious fanatics to harbor in their midst. This is a well known fact. A fact you have conveniently forgotten or intentionally omitted.

    4) “You are driven by one, just one, precept…a deep hate for President Bush.”

    > Hate George Bush ? ….. I dont waste my soul on hatred ….. I have one life to liven and I wouldnt waste ONE SECOND hating someone …. George Bush is an asshole, and should have NEVER been president of this great land. I have no obligation to LIKE George Bush, or your party, in the slightest. Honestly: He isnt worth hatred …. But he should be held accountable for his acts. IF George Bush brought this great nation to war KNOWING the pretext was false, then he lied ….

    He lied to congress …

    He lied to You …

    He lied to the world.

    I believe that he knew, and that, therefore he may be deemed responsible for those actions committed based on those falsehoods.

    5) “You would give up this country in a minute if it validated your hate for that one man.”

    > Let me make one thing perfectly clear to you: I am a patriot through and through. I love my freedom, and I love my country. EVERYONE of those persons demonstrating today are patriots was well, because they are defending their rights NOW. They are defending their rights as citizens to be dealt an honest hand. They demand accountability from an administration that has railroaded their fellow citizens with a pack of lies.

    I love my freedom, and I am not going anywhere, thanks. I was born and raised in this US of A, and I intend to speak my mind about what is happening.

    YOU want to confuse treason with disagreement, and that is a purposeful LIE for yours ….

    Funny how anyone who doesnt agree with the extreme right wing republicans in the White House are deemed ‘traitors’ in your book.

    Would all Americans who voted AGAINST the GOP congress (thank you America!) be considered ‘traitors’ for dumping those sorry asses into the gutter outside of the capital building ?

    Hardly …..

    Get this through your head: Americans CAN be Democrat, Liberal, AND freedom-loving patriots ….. AND they can disagree with the LYING president, and STILL be patriots ….

    Any claim to the contrary is a damned lie ….

  12. Common Man Says:

    I don’t condemn you for speaking your mind and protesting what you think is wrong. I condemn you for lating hate tante your view of reality. President Bush was elected by We the People, he has successfully protected We the People from terrorists, and on and on. What you just can’t seem to grasp is that America is much, much bigger than a one-man show. Anyone who blames Bush as you do for all that’s wrong is shallow and vacuous…incapable of sound and rational thought…and should not be allowed to go outside alone.

  13. HL Says:

    President Bush was elected by We the People? When? Not in 2000, in that election we the people elected Al Gore, then in 2004 We the people elected John Kerry. It so happens that neither of these men served because of friends of Bush in Ohio and Florida, then Bush lies us into a war for oil that lasts longer then WW2. But we have spun him into a crazy and dangerous man? No he did that himself, we are just smart enough to see the truth.

    Hey Common Man, maybe there are a lot of other things about Liberals, and Hollywood that you thought you knew that were also wrong.

  14. rr.b. Says:

    YOU PEOPLE REALLY THINK WHEN BUSH LEAVES OFFICE AND WE PULL EVERY TROOP OUT OF IRAQ YOU THINK TERRORISM IS GOING TO STOP . I GOT NEWS FOR YOU. THE PROBLEM IS MUCH DEEPER. THE REAL PROBLEM IS ISLAM . RADICAL ISLAM. THESE CRAZY MUSLIMS WANT WORLD DOMINATION. THEY WANT TO MAKE THE WHOLE WORLD ISLAMIC. THEY WANT TO IMPOSE SHERIA LAW ON THE WORLD. THEY WANT TO DESTORY ISRAEL,AMERICA, AND THE WEST. THAT IS THERE GOAL. MUSLIMS WILL NEVER BE HAPPY TILL THEY CONTROL THE WORLD. PREFECT EXAMPLE IS WHAT IS GOING ON WITH RADICAL ISLAM IN EUROPE RIGHT NOW. RADICAL ISLAM IS OUT OF CONTROL IN EUROPE. THE PROBLEM IS NOT BUSH THE ENEMEY IS RADICAL ISLAM.

  15. Common Man Says:

    To HL:

    You’re such an idiot! If it wasn’t for worn-out liberal sound-bites, your mind would be completed empty.

  16. ayeshahaqqiqa Says:

    Note to rr.b–
    The majority of Muslims in the world would like to live in peace, without imposing anything on anyone. The majority of Muslims respect Christians and Jews as “people of the Book”. However, there is a sect of Islam, called Wahhabism, that is about as fanatical as you say–with this exception–they persecute other Muslims who don’t agree with them with the same vigor and hatred they have for Christians and Jews. Who are the Wahhibs? And who supports them? They are from Saudi Arabia, and are supported by the Saudi Royal family, the same family that is good friends with the Bush family.

  17. Eugene Says:

    Osama, shut up and go back to being dead. We know that you were a CIA Bush supporter when you were alive. You can rest in peace in your death, you have nothing more to prove.

  18. Matthew/Boston Says:

    Why aren’t Bush and Cheney in federal prison right now? God almighty, is this some incredible crazy nightmare?

    The Democrats are either in collusion or cowards. Which is it?

    RIP America. Been nice know’in ya.

  19. rr.b. Says:

    IF ONLY A FEW MUSLIMS ARE RADICAL HOW COME 8 OUT 10 ISLAMIC COUNTRIES LIVE UNDER SHERIA LAW. MOST ISLAMIC COUNTRIES STONE PEOPLE TO DEATH BEHEAD PEOPLE WOMEN HAVE NO RIGHTS AT ALL.IN MOST MUSLIM COUNTRIES THE RADICALS RUN THE EDUCATION, THE MEDIA, THEY RUN EVERYTHING. THEY GLORIFI SUICIDE BOMBERS IN CHILDREN CARTOONS.THEY ARE TAUGHT SINCE THEY ARE BABIES TO HATE THE JEWS CHRISTIANS AND THE WEST. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS LOOK AT THE BEHAVIOR OF MUSLIM COUNTRIES . THEY ARE ALL FULL OF TERRORIST .LOOK HOW THEY REACTED DURING THE DANISH CARTOONS . THIS IS MORE THAN A FEW. . HOW COME SO MANY MUSLIM COUNTRIES CAUSE SO MUCH TROUBLE. IF THEY WERE OPEN AND FREE AMERICA WOULD NOT HAVE TO GO INVADE THESE COUNTRIES.WE WOULD NOT BE HAVING THESE PROBLEMS.

  20. George Says:

    Im sorry, but George Bush is a good man,a good Father, and a very good husband. He is also loyal to America. And I know Im going to get beat up over this,,but thats what I see in him. Im also a Dem. George

  21. STENDEC Says:

    reLAX….iSRAEL AIN’T DONE WITH YOU YET aMERICA!

    SUCKERS!

  22. Common Man Says:

    George, thanks! Like my ol’ pappy use to say, you have your head screwed on straight. George Bush is exactly as you’ve described him…and that’s why he draws so much hate from the godless, mindless Left. Keep believing in George W.; keep believing in America.

  23. Mullah Cimoc Says:

    Mullah Cimoc say ameriki people so smart for hating the bush for israeli spy and the neocon control the usa military.

    everyone above and below this comment is a complete idiot, protesting is not something any of you are educated about, i don’t understand how you people even get onto a computer let alone breathe.

  25. Larry Says:

    While Americans protest the war on Monday the 4th anniversary of Bush’s assault for world dominance, Bush will be having a celebration party with the Florida Gators at the White House.

    Rather sick to put it midly.

    Arrognace has put us into this mess
    Your attitude towards others demonstrates this
    Out Troops can be instrumental in our own country
    where government agencys such as FEMA continue to fail
    Helping those who have suffered through tornados and hurricanes
    to rebuild and generate hope

    I am aware I spelled agencies wrong no need to comment.
    Opinions are more important

  28. Bill Says:

    I haven’t seen this much crap comming out of libs in a while. It’s funny
    To start with Trajan you need to get your facts straight. By your own words “the war is not justified ” than we should have never been involved in WWII because there was no justification for the US to be involved. Nothing of the US was attacked and if you want to say that Pearl Harbor was the reason than you can not say that Iraq is an unjust war because Pearl Harbor wasn’t part of the US until way after WWII.
    Now as for your Democratic representatives not getting the truth. Wrong again, they have every right and power to ask questions about any and all of what they got the problem is that only about 10 people read the whole report. So who is to blame for that? The same people that voted for the war. The Democratic representatives. They just rubber stamped the approval for the war to look good for the American people.
    “Clinton left office in 2000, and gave the new WH staff critical information about the threats we REALLY faced in 2001: The Bush WH simply ignored them, and in fact REDUCED anti-terror efforts by 58 MILLION dollars (had to pay for the tax cuts …) …. I suppose it would be a huge waste of breath to point out that OUR great nation was attacked; NOT when Clinton was in office, but when BUSH was in office ”
    To start with you better read this before you make claims you can’t back up. www opinionjournal.com/extra/?id=110007540
    As for your claim about cutting the anti-terror effort by 58 million that is wrong and to say that it was to pay for a tax cut shows just how stupid you are and how much you don’t know about taxes. So stick with what you do know.
    As for the US not being attacked when Clinton was in office than would you be so kind as to tell me just who was in Office when the USS Cole was attacked or maybe the Embassys cause I could have sworen it was Clinton.
    “al Qaeda (not Al Queda) did NOT exist in Iraq, ever ” This statement is so wrong it doesn’t even get a comment. I will anyway it was proven by a number of “COUNTRYS” that they were in Iraq.
    As for Bush lieing you need to read this. wwwopinionjournal.com/extra/?id=110007540
    HL as for Bush having both elections handed to him either Gore or Kerry could have persued it further than what they did but they knew the one thing you don’t. They LOST.

    Not Alone
    Your statement about”government agencys such as FEMA continue to fail
    Helping those who have suffered through tornados and hurricanes
    to rebuild and generate hope” tell me since when has it been the Governments job to help those people. They have been helping themselves for years without government help and done just fine. This mind set that the government needs to help people is what has gotten this country in the mess that it is in now. Everyone wants the government to do this and that rather than doing it for themselves. Alot of this country has become a welfare state and the only thing they want to know is what can the government can do for me.

    […] Hollywood “I know this is a long story. Much happened today, and I did not have my camera to depict it. We did march until we reached the Pentagon where we had the parking lot and a stage was set up. There were many many speakers, memorable to me were the parents of fallen soldiers, Giuliana Sgrena, Cindy Sheehan, and also former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney.” […]

  30. HL Says:

    Wrong again Bill. While Hawaii was not a state in 1941, it was a US territory. I love the way you come on here and tell people that they need to check the facts when as usual it is you who have the facts wrong. Try doing a little research next time.

    This is from infoplease History of Hawaii

    Hawaii was a native kingdom throughout most of the 19th century, when the expansion of the sugar industry (pineapple came after 1898) meant increasing U.S. business and political involvement. In 1893, Queen Liliuokalani was deposed, and a year later the Republic of Hawaii was established with Sanford B. Dole as president. Following annexation (1898), Hawaii became a U.S. territory in 1900.

  31. Why Says:

    The hate and anger many of you display in your words to each other makes it clear why there is war and mankind cannot live in peace.
    If someone has an opinion which may differ from person to person why not debate & discuss. Why belittle one another & pretend that we all have the correct answers when our leaders cannot come up with the correct answer. I am only 15 years old but I am sorry to say that you my elders have disappointed me in example of what it means to be an American. I am judging nobody and have lost 2 brothers in this war. It is time to come home and let other countries resolve their problems. If my brothers were alive and still serving America they can protect America from America if we are threatened. How can we have peace in another country when you people are fighting with each other here!

  32. Bill Says:

    HL it is so nice to see that the only time you take your foot out of your mouth is to put the other one in. You need to do some research. A “territory ” is a place that is under US law not owned by the US so you want to say that I am wrong and I need to do research than you better have your facts straight. The US didn’t own Hawaii just like the Louisiana Territory, we didn’t own it until we bought it from France but it was under US law. So now that you have once again showen just how much you don’t know please keep trying.

    Why
    The problem is not that most of the people on this site can’t debate, the problem is you show someone facts to prove what they are posting is wrong and they either don’t want to believe it or they refuse to believe it.

  33. aaa Says:

    america and israel should quit playing around and kill all the muslims once and for all. they are all nothing but trouble. just nuke them and watch it glow.

  34. Bill Says:

    Oh HL if that wasn’t good enough for you than you can read this. It should make your day. In a nut shell it states that Hawaii has never been a part of the US.
    America gained possession of Hawaii through a succession of illegal acts, in 1893, 1898, and 1959, and has confessed to these crimes. The inherent sovereignty of the Native Hawaiian people, according to the US, has never been relinquished. Essentially, the country of Hawaii is currently illegally occupied by a foreign military colonial power.

    In 1993 Congress and the President decided they had something to apologize for. Most of Public Law 103-150 deals with the events of the 1893 overthrow and the 1898 annexation. But one important clause relates directly to 1959 and the present:

    “the indigenous Hawaiian people NEVER directly RELINQUISHED their claims to their INHERENT SOVEREIGNTY as a people or over their NATIONAL LANDS to the United States, either through their monarchy or through a PLEBISCITE or REFERENDUM.”

    If you want the web site here.www hartford-hwp.com/archives/24/154.html
    So guess what the US didn’t have any interest in Hawaii during WWII

  35. Navy Brat Says:

    I was at this march. It got zero coverage in the press. ZERO.
    Here we are 7 months later. Our pResident has been exposed as the moron puppet of the oil corporations that we who marched said he was. Jobs are gone. Retirement nest eggs are gone. Homes are gone. Banks are gone. We are headed into a real live Depression and how many more of our troops have died? How many civilians have been killed and babies and children blown apart? How many neocons and other good ole boys have become billionaires in the interim?
    How do you like your moron in chief now, my fellow Americans?
