The "Pro-War" Lies Again!

This weekend, our own "Fascist Daily" reported that "thousands" of anti-war demonstrators marched in Manhattan. The marchers wished to show the public how little support is left for our fake government's corrupt and illegal imperialist ventures in Iraq.

The Pro-War (Ooopps, Freudian slip, I meant the "Post-Star") printed no picture with its AP story and then severely underreported the turnout. While this "underreporting the numbers" game goes back to the beginnings of the labor movement and the first robber barons and their control of the "free press", its always cool to catch the little Nazis in their lie.

Along with a picture of the protests taken by Chip East, Reuters reported a QUARTER OF A MILLION PROTESTORS. Let me just ask you; thousands of protestors, tens of thousands of protestors, hundreds of thousands or a quarter million protestors? Which would be the most accurate description of the attendance and why did the Fascist Daily choose the LEAST accurate (and least favorable) description? The Pro-War (oops, there I go again) wanted to paint a mental image in your mind of just about enough people to fill a large high school auditorium. The picture hardly supports their flawed and biased reporting. One more truth they'll never show you.


Anti-war protesters gather in Manhattan

NEW YORK -- A day after the military announced that April was the deadliest month for U.S. forces in Iraq this year, thousands of anti-war demonstrators marched Saturday through lower Manhattan to demand an immediate withdrawal of troops. Cindy Sheehan, a vociferous critic of the war whose soldier son also died in Iraq, joined in the march, as did actress Susan Sarandon and the Rev. Jesse Jackson. "End this war, bring the troops home," read one sign lifted by marchers on the sunny afternoon, three years after the war in Iraq began.

The mother of a Marine killed two years ago in Iraq held a picture of her son, born in 1984 and killed 20 years later. One group marched under the banner "Veterans for Peace."

"We are here today because the war is illegal, immoral and unethical," said the Rev. Al Sharpton. "We must bring the troops home." Organizers said the march was also meant to oppose any military action against Iran, which is facing international criticism over its nuclear program. The event was organized by the group United for Peace and Justice.

The march stepped off shortly after noon from Union Square, with the demonstrators heading for a rally between a U.S. courthouse and a federal office building in Lower Manhattan. The military said Friday that at least 69 U.S. troops have died in Iraq in April. That figure is well below some of the bloodiest months of the Iraq conflict, but is a sharp increase over March, when 31 were killed. January's death toll was 62 and February's 55. In December, 68 Americans died.
