Brian Becker, national coordinator of the ANSWER Coalition, spoke at the antiwar rally yesterday outside the US Coast Guard Academy as Bush was speaking inside.
The neo-fascists he refers to were the Gathering of Geezers (or whatever it is they call themselves), aging white males across the street who distinguished themselves primarily by screaming sexual insults at antiwar women. “Today they don’t have their swastikas on, they don’t have their Klan robes on, but you can bet, that’s who they really are,” Becker said.
We had fifteen times their number, of all ages, multiple nationalities and religions too. Polls show the public strongly opposes the war now. The antiwar movement IS the majority. And only we can end the war. Just like we did with Vietnam.
