Oregon Peaceniks Call For Bush’s “Execution”

From the Oregonian:


Town hall crowd calls for Bush impeachment

At a lively town hall meeting Sunday, billed as a discussion about “peace and accountability,” emotions directed at U.S. Rep. Earl Blumenauer ranged from calm to screaming mad. Nearly all of it was about one subject:

Impeachment of President Bush.

Angered by what they view as an immoral war and a corrupt administration, people in the crowd hammered on the theme of a congressional trial of Bush and wondered whether the controlling Democrats have the spine for it.

“People spilled blood to create this country and get this Constitution,” said Lenore Norrgard of Northeast Portland. “Impeachment should be at the top of the agenda.”

She, like just about everyone else who used the word, got thunderous applause from about 250 people who attended the meeting at the Hollywood Theatre. At least half in the audience wore red T-shirts emblazoned in white with the single word “IMPEACH.”

Many of the impeachment hard-liners saved their talking points for Sunday’s face-to-face with the man many consider to be Oregon’s most liberal member of Congress. A handful were hostile, calling Blumenauer a “coward” for not calling outright for Bush’s impeachment. Most were civil, if blunt

Before the meeting started, Blumenauer signed an oversized document called the “Oregon Declaration of Peace,” in which he pledged: “I will vote ‘no’ on any appropriations bill that will continue U.S. military operations in Iraq.” …

The vast majority of those who talked supported impeachment, saying that would have to come before the Iraq war could end.

Some went even further, calling for Bush to be tried for treason. One Southeast Portland resident said the president “should be executed — in public.” A number in the audience applauded.

Another speaker who later refused to have her name published said impeachment would be “too good” for Bush and agreed that he should be tried for treason. “If he’s just impeached, he’ll be walking around like O.J. Simpson,” she said…

Bonnie Tinker of Northeast Portland, one of the last to speak, urged everyone in the audience who favored impeachment to stand. Only a few remained seated. Then people began chanting, “Stand up, Earl!” He remained seated.

“I appreciate the focus, the passion, the determination and the courtesy shown today,” he said. “I’m going to spend some time chewing on what you had to say.” …

One wonders how many of these grassroots protesters are on the payroll?

At least half in the audience wore red T-shirts emblazoned in white with the single word “IMPEACH.”

But for a laugh, check out Ms. Lenore Norrgard:

“People spilled blood to create this country and get this Constitution,” said Lenore Norrgard of Northeast Portland. “Impeachment should be at the top of the agenda.”

She is a professional “shaman” dedicated to “global healing.” That is when she isn’t demanding the murder of President Bush.

The also noted Bonnie Tinker is a “lesbian activist” who runs a workshop called “Opening Hearts and Minds.”

Ms. Tinker is also the Executive Director and founder of Love Makes A Family, inc., an organization of families headed by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual people, and their friends.

As you can see from the YouTube video at the top, this group of loving and healing professional agitators has been stalking Mr. Blumenauer for months now.

Also, isn’t threatening the life of the President illegal?  

Oh, that’s right, they are leftists, so it doesn’t matter.
