My goodness, these folks are some *major* losers.\nPerhaps some of the saner folks in Seattle (if\nthere actually are any sane people there) can\ntake some kind of action. Nothing violent, you\nunderstand - something uniquely American, say...\nHey! A baseball game! They could have a baseball\ngame right outside the Freedom Socialist Party's\nheadquarters. Of course, they'd want to be extra\ncareful that any stray pitches or foul tips didn't\nhit the windows where the "Victory to the Iraqi\nResistance" sign was located. Wouldn't they?\n\n____________________________________________________\n\nON THE HOME FRONT\n\nSeattle sign cheers\nU.S. enemies\nWindow front on major street:\n"Victory to the Iraqi Resistance''\n\n-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\nPosted: April 29, 2004\n1:00 a.m. Eastern\n\nBy Art Moore\n-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\n© 2004 WorldNetDaily.com\n\n\nAs U.S. troops engage radical Islamic insurgents\nin Iraq, passersby on a major thoroughfare near\ndowntown Seattle this week will notice a sign in\na window front that urges: "Victory to the Iraqi\nResistance."\n\nThe sign appears on the New Freeway Hall Community\nCenter on multi-ethnic Rainier Avenue, home of the\nlocal branch of the Freedom Socialist Party.\n\nLuma Nichol, Seattle organizer of the party, told\nWorldNetDaily her group put up the sign because there\nhas been a "distortion of the truth" about the Iraq\nwar, and "we want to educate our neighbors."\n\nShe said the reaction to the sign, noted by a\ncontributor to FreeRepublic.com, has been much\nmore positive than negative.\n\n"There is a lot of opposition to the war," she told\nWND. "A lot of people understand that what the U.S.\ngovernment is doing is a hostile invasion that violates\nthe sovereignty of the Iraqi people."\n\nHowever, Tuesday, she said, a "not very eloquent person"\ntelephoned and "called us all a bunch of fags, which is\nnot very conducive to debate."\n\nBut some opponents would call wishing victory for an\nenemy of the United States an act of sedition, she\nacknowledged when asked.\n\n"I'm sure there are some people that would see it that\nway, but the U.S. is the aggressor in this situation\nand in the wrong," she said.\n\n"A people whose country is being invaded and colonized\nby a hostile force have a right to defend themselves -\nthat is what people did in World War II, and I stand on\nthe side of the victims not the aggressors," Nichol declared.\n\nShe said she agrees with people who call the ousted Iraqi\nleader Saddam Hussein a "dictator and vicious man."\n\n"But I don't believe that the U.S. government wants to\nbring liberty and democracy to Iraq," she said. "They\nhave their own agenda - oil, making money for Halliburton\nand other firms. There is no evidence that the U.S. has\nthe interest of the Iraqi people at heart."\n\nIt's up to the Iraqi people to deal with their own dictator,\nshe asserted.\n\n"How would you feel if somebody said Dick Cheney is a threat\nto democracy and invaded our country?"\n\nNichol explained her group is a "socialist, feminist\npolitical party" that has been active in the U.S. for\nmore than 30 years. As part of the Trotskyist wing of\ncommunism, it is distinguished from the Communist Party\nU.S.A. she said, "calling for socialist democracy in\nopposition to Stalinism."\n\nThere isn't a country in the world that practices her\nparty's model for government, she said, but Cuba comes\nthe closest.
