Did you know that there is an *original* moonbat. Oh yes! His name is George Monbiot, (a UK journalist and Green Party member) and I’m guessing the word “moonbat” is a play on his last name. I guess if I really wanted to take the time, I could cite some examples of how Monbiot earned the nickname. But his latest antic, is enough to enter him into the Moonbat Hall of Fame, all by itself.
Because this Moonbat wants to execute a citizen’s arrest of John Bolton’s mustache, and is putting the call out to fellow moonbats. Can you believe this guy?!:
Author George Monbiot (original inspiration for the term “moonbat”) has declared that this coming Wednesday, after former UN Ambassador John Bolton speaks, that he plans to arrest the American for “war crimes.”
After running through a jawdropping series of falsehoods, exaggerations, and ignorant comments about Bolton’s career, Moonbat then issues his challenge:Only when those who help to launch illegal wars fear punishment will future governments desist from launching them. As citizens I believe we have a duty to try to deter future war crimes. So I propose that we allow John Bolton to speak here, and then carry out a citizen’s arrest.
Mr Monbiot was blocked by two heavily-built security guards at the end of the one-and-a-half hour appearance, before he could serve a “charge sheet” on him.
After being released by the guards the columnist – a fierce critic of the 2003 American-led invasion – made a dash through the rain-soaked tented village in a failed attempt to catch up with Mr Bolton.
During Mr Bolton’s talk, to a packed-out audience, Mr Monbiot had asked Mr Bolton what difference there was between him and a Nazi war criminal.
Mr Bolton said the war was legal, partly because Iraq had failed to comply with a key and binding UN resolution after the end of the Gulf War in 1991.
On the war’s legality, he added: “This is not my personal opinion, this is the opinion of the entire legal apparatus of the US government.”
Nuh uh. It’s still an illegal war…I saw it on a bumpersticker.
