Peace Activist Etiquitte

  1. OK, while I think there is a point to this, I got this in my email, and found it funny. I AM NOT PROPOSING ANYONE REALLY DO THIS.

    PEACE ACTIVIST ETIQUETTE
    With all of this talk of impending war, many of us will encounter "Peace Activists" who will try and convince us that we must refrain from retaliating against the ones who terrorized us all on September 11, 2001, and those who support terror.

    These activists may be alone or in a gathering. . . . . most of us don't know how to react to them. When you come upon one of these people, or one of their rallies, here are the proper Rules of Etiquette:

    1. Listen politely while this person explains their views. Strike up a conversation if necessary and look very interested in thei ideas. They will tell you how revenge is immoral, and that by attacking the people who did this to us, we will only bring on more violence. They will probably use many arguments, ranging from political to religious to humanitarian.

    2. In the middle of their remarks, without any warning, punch them square in the face.

    3. When the person gets up off of the ground, they will be very angry and they may try to hit you, so be careful.

    4. Very quickly and calmly remind the person that violence only brings about more violence and remind them of their stand on this matter. Tell them if they are really committed to a non-violent approach to undeserved attacks, they will turn the other cheek and negotiate a solution. Tell them they must lead by example if they really believe what they are saying.

    5. Most of them will think for a moment and then agree that you are correct.

    6. As soon as they do that, hit them again. Only this time hit them much harder. Square in the face.

    7. Repeat steps 2-5 until the desired results are obtained and the idiot realizes how stupid of an argument that they are making.

    8. There is no difference in an individual attacking an unsuspecting victim, or a group of terrorists attacking a nation of people. It is unacceptable and must be dealt with. Perhaps at a high cost.

    We owe our military a huge debt for what they are now doing for us and our children. We must support them and our leaders at times like these. We have no choice. We either strike back, VERY HARD, or we will keep getting hit again and again.

    Lesson over, class dismissed

    Again, for the HUMOR and maybe the lesson behind it. DON'T DO THIS.

    Kevin, You've just described terrorism. Only terrorists wouldn't listen politely, they would just strike without warning.

    I think it's hilarious. Sums up everything nicely, IMO.

    And perhaps that's the point. The terrorists aren't going to listen politely, perhaps they won't care whether they kill people who are in favor of the war, or people who are out protesting in the street. They will just be happy to kill Americans. Does anyone think, given the chance, the current Iraqi government would be careful in an attack on our country to be sure sure spare those who are against the war? They are using thier own citizens as shields.

    If you feel this is low class, if this sickens you, then you know just how I feel about the current crop of protesters.

    Well said, Kevin, as usual.

    I also found it amusing that a major anti-war protest march was cancelled last week because of RAIN! (Does the phrase "fair weather friends" ring a bell?)

    I dunno, I definately saw the dry humor in it and enjoyed it. Thank you Kev.
