If you stuck CODEPINK and a 5 minute long movie-trailer-like advertisement for the Army National Guard in the same room, what would happen? Well, such little scientists we are, and here is how it went down.
First of all, everyone should see the new documentary of Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping called "What Would Jesus Buy." It was such a good film and the Rev. and his wife showed up here in D.C. for the showing. But long before they showed the National Guard trailer came on, and was met with boos for the first few minutes until someone stood on the back chair and blocked out the screen with his body. That is steps 1 and 2 of the 4 step program of activism of the coalition of the willing to oppose the propaganda that fools the youth (oops,I mean advertising; propaganda is what the Nazis used). Peace is Patriotic, stopping atrocities is patriotic; Is that what they do in the National Guard, or will they end up committing them? They even forgot to say in the add that even more troops from the guard are going to be sent over to Iraq (Kind of a big point, huh)
Step 3 is asking for a refund and step 4 (which was carried out by an unknown group of individuals, and not code pink, but I thought it was so great, that I added it here) is to steal any posters or any 7 foot tall signs advertising for the Army National Guard. Oh Billy
