What’s the collective noun for moonbats? Guess we’ll find out in a couple of months, when the Enormous Puppet League descends on Sydney to protest against the Howard government’s “aggressively (neo)conservative agenda” and greedy people-haters:
On 30 August 2005 one of the world’s richest men Steve Forbes and NSW Premier Bob Carr will host the fifth annual Forbes Global CEO Conference at the Sydney Opera House.
Like the World Trade Organisation and the World Economic Forum the Global CEO Conference is a means of promoting economic and social policies that will benefit the rich and the powerful at the expense of the majority of the world’s people and the environment.
I blame the Big Giant Octopus, shown here illustrating the August 30 collective’s concerns over globalisation and war. Whenever that oversize, earth-grabbing (and usually Hebrew) octopus appears, well, you’ve got trouble, mister. Here he is in 1972, wearing a scary hat. The Big Giant Octopus has been a classic anti-Semitic symbol for generations; JewWatch (!) applauds this 1911 comment from John F. Hylan, then mayor of New York:
“The real menace of our republic is the invisible government which, like a giant octopus, sprawls its slimy length over our city, state and nation. At the head is a small group of banking houses, generally referred to as ‘international bankers.’”
Then, “international bankers”. Now, the “rich and the powerful”. And, as always, an octopus somewhere.
UPDATE. It might be fun to screen this outside the Opera House during peak moonbat moments.
