The Vicious Cycle of Moonbat Inspiration

Muntader al-Zaidi, the obnoxious ingrate who demonstrated how free Iraq has become by throwing his shoes at President Bush, was inspired by Western moonbattery, as you may have read[1]:

A day after the incident, al-Zeidi’s three brothers and one sister gathered in al-Zeidi’s simple, one-bedroom apartment in west Baghdad. The home was decorated with a poster of Latin American revolutionary leader Che Guevara…

…just like an Obama campaign office[2].

Now al-Zeidi has influenced Western moonbats in turn, inspiring yet another lame spectacle by peace activists in DC yesterday. From a Code Pink press release[3]:

In solidarity with an Iraqi journalist who threw his shoes at George W. Bush at a Baghdad press conference Sunday, peace activists will gather outside the White House with bags of shoes representing Iraqis and U.S. soldiers who have died since the Bush Administration’s illegal invasion of Iraq.

They aim to show support for Iraqi journalist Muntader al-Zaidi, who hurled his shoes at President Bush while he spoke at the conference on his “surprise” visit to discuss the war. Al-Zaidi is currently being held by Iraqi police and questioned on his actions. The peace activists are calling on the Iraqi government to release al-Zaidi without charges and have set up a fund to support him and his family.

TSO at This Ain’t Hell[4] was on hand for the event, and reports that journalists outnumbered protestors 3:1, as you can see here:


Among the handful of angry moonbats was the indefatigable Medea Benjamin, seen here with her mouth open as always:


When the cycle of Muslim-moonbat influence comes around again, Iraqi left-wing camera whores will start dressing in pink.

On tips from Burning Hot, who knows who they ought to be throwing shoes at in Iraq[5], and Stephen B. Hat tip: Nice Deb[6]. Cross-posted at Moonbattery[7].
