Rant of the Day

by Feòrag

The Spring Equinox is often overlooked, with the Summer Solstice and Hallowe'en the preferred dates for evil occult conspiracies everywhere. But this year, it's on the 20th, which is the first anniversary of Oceania having always been at war with EastasiaEurasia. And (barking mad, right wing, fundie, and believing Israel can do no wrong) Front Page Magazine has noticed.

This Saturday, March 20, anti-American marches and rallies were scheduled for dozens of cities in 50 countries around the world, and in the U.S. from Manhattan to Los Angeles. (In picking this date for antiwar protest, did they notice that the month of March was named for the Roman god of War?)
Purportedly chosen to mark the one-year anniversary of America's incursion into Iraq, March 20 this year also happens to be the Spring Equinox (one of two annual days when day and night are equal), the day when spring officially begins.
Millions of pagans, as their forebears did at Stonehenge, go to parks to celebrate the Equinox as Mother Nature's own Earth Day. (The first unnatural Earth Day, April 22, 1970, was deliberately set for Soviet Union founder Vladimir Lenin's 100th Birthday and has been gleefully celebrated as Earth Day by Marxists and their red-green fellow travelers on this mass murderer's birthday ever since.) These pagan nature lovers, brought out by spring fever instead of feverish anti-Bush activism, will doubtless be used to falsely inflate media tallies of rallying Leftist protesters.

Millions of Pagans? That'll be news to most Pagans. EACH MID-MARCH THE BUZZARDS RETURN - Front Page Magazine, 19th March 2004.
