It lacks the humor of the blowjob sign displayed outside the White House several years ago. But the full-page ad in this morning’s NY Times shows more fervor. Talk about powerful!
Postscript: Now for the longhand:
YOUR GOVERNMENT, on the basis of outrageous lies, is waging a murderous and utterly illegitimate war in Iraq, with other countries in its sights.
YOUR GOVERNMENT is openly torturing people, and justifying it.
YOUR GOVERNMENT puts people in jail on the merest suspicion, refusing them lawyers, and either holding them indefinitely or deporting them in the dead of night.
YOUR GOVERNMENT is moving each day closer to a theocracy, where a narrow and hateful brand of Christian fundamentalism will rule.
YOUR GOVERNMENT suppresses the science that doesn’t fit its religious, political and economic agenda, forcing present and future generations to pay a terrible price.
And that’s just the beginning. Click on the image and listen to Olympia Dukakis deliver “the call” to drive out the BananaRepublic and impeach the regime’s leaders for war crimes. It’s wall-to-wall stunning. (“Olympia Dukakis is begging for a one-way ticket to Gitmo.” — David Ehrenstein)
