Oxblog ROCKS With Mama Moonbat Rally Coverage

This is what investigative reporting in the media used to be. David Adesnick, whom I once accused in a personal email of being a leftie (because of a post he wrote), has written a series of posts that, if I hadn't already corrected myself, would merit a very large "I WAS WRONG".

In this post (2:35 am), he researches a little about what A.N.S.W.E.R. is really all about. It's not pretty. (Tie-in to education: this organization had a table set up, within the perimeter and hence officially sanctioned, at the anti-Schwarzenegger Day of Action Rally at the Capitol in Sacramento back in May. They even provided signs for teachers and nurses to carry. I blogged about it here, here, and here, among other places.) Just as a review, this is what the New York Times, conservative paper that it is, had to say about ANSWER:
Answer, whose name stands for Act Now to Stop War and End Racism, was formed a few days after Sept. 11, 2001, by activists who had already begun coming together to protest policies of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. Some of the group's chief organizers are active in the Workers World Party, a radical Socialist group with roots in the Stalin-era Soviet Union. The party has taken positions that include defense of the Iraqi and North Korean governments and support for Slobodan Milosevic, the former Yugolav president being tried on war crimes charges.

Here (4:44 am post) Oxblog provides a little information about United For Peace and Justice, another sponsor of today's rally.

Guess what the political philosophies are of these two organizations? I'll give you a hint: it rhymes with shmomunist. Seriously. No exaggerating.

In this 4:00 am post he offers a 5-question quiz he wants to give protestors. I know 4 of the answers but am unsure about one. His reference and link to Evan Coyne Maloney is well worth a look-see.

His 3:15 am post shows some pretty pathetic coverage by the Washington Post. This is news?

And Instapundit shows us a couple of pictures of war supporters. I hope he'll provide more as he gets them.

WAIT! DID YOU HEAR THAT? I think I heard some moonbats howling!
