Alternative Easter Egg Hunt Near White House to Use Fake Cluster Bombs Made By Kids

Friday, April 06, 2007

WASHINGTON —  Anti-war and human rights activists plan an unusual take on the Easter egg hunt by holding an Easter cluster-bomb hunt on Monday.

Fake cluster bombs made by children will be scattered around Lafayette Park, north of the White House.

Hundreds of people will attend the White House Easter Egg Roll while activists hold their alternative cluster-bomb hunt on the other side of the executive mansion.

Brian Hennessey, a spokesman for the Vineeta Foundation, a group sponsor, said the event aims to be humorous and fun for kids. Organizers also want to bring attention that cluster bombs cause death and destruction, Hennessey said.

A cluster bomb releases several hundred smaller bombs that might explode or linger on the ground as land mines, which are often found and picked up by children.

Me: I would put something like this in the realm of verbal and emotional abuse which is often categorized as worse than physical abuse by abuse victims. Is their fanatical hatred of Bush so great they would endanger their own children’s futures with this sort of mind rape? Isn’t there enough nastiness in the world that parents should try to find ways of preserving as much childhood innocence as possible?

To get further details of the foundation involved, you can google the foundation’s name and find their website easily. To give them the benefit of doubt, I did that… just in case Fox was being right-wing biased, as it’s often accused of being, you know? Fox was kind in their report.

One part quoted:

On Easter, Christians around the world remember the fundamental message of their religion (and all religions) – Peace – and that you reap what you sow (but sometimes innocent children reap what you’ve sown).

Me: They are sowing the seeds of terror in their own children; terror that will remain with them for the rest of their lives coming from inside the safe haven of their own families, not from without. Golda Mier says it best, “There will be no peace until they love their children more than they hate us.” Obviously this group does not love their children more.

If they wish to protest the war, the cluster bombs, or anything else for that matter, their use of children to do it is… is… just plain sick.

    Great post and you’re right. It is just plain sick. In my opinion, this is no different that the video’s we see of the children of extremists being taught to hate us so much that they swear to become suicide bombers while their parents proudly videotape them. Sick indeed. The culture of corruption is being replaced with the culture of hatred.

  • hillbilly says:

    That was one of my thoughts. How different are they? They do hateful things in the name of peace? What kind of peace are they envisioning in that case?

  • Christi says:

    In my opinion, they envision a peace that comes when no one is allowed to speak or think differently – though they would never admit to that. They envision an illusion of peace that comes in a communist nation or one that is ruled by a tyrant – but they don’t even realize that is what they are promoting.

    You know, it’s really twisted. They believe in a leftist utopia that has never existed. Even though it has been tried for centuries, it has always failed. And here they are, in the greatest nation in the world, and they are so blinded by their hatred that they cannot enjoy what they were fortunate enough to have inherited – they live in the kind of nation that others can only dream of. It’s sad, really.

    We need keep in mind that ‘cluster bombs’ are dimly viewed by other than ‘the stupid left’. For example, the National
    Council of Catholic Bishops stated in part “The use of anti-personnel landmines, cluster bombs and other weapons that cannot distinguish between soldiers and civilians, or between times of war and times of peace, should also be avoided” in their statement about Iraq prior to the pre-emptive invasion
    http://www.usccb.org/sdwp/international/iraqstatement0203.htm I agree that substituting paper mache cluster bombs for
    Easter eggs is ‘just plain sick’. And I’ll go further..leaving real cluster bombs (which is unavoidable, given the malfunction rate of these nefarious things) scattered about the landscape,
    is equally sick. Little kids pick them up, they are shiny and colorful-in short order they lose their arm, leg or life. From a tactical standpoint, these weapons negate our efforts to win
    ‘hearts and minds’..a significant factor in successful anti-guerilla combat operations.

    Cluster bombs, the real ones, are a sick piece of munitions for sure. I can agree with you in this.

    However, one is a war issue, the other is a parent to children issue. Just because they don’t like cluster bombs anymore than many others do, I can’t think much of parents who would use their children in such a way because of hate.
