Just when you thought that the Left could not possibly get any weirder…
Three clowns, one a retired priest, the other two Vietnam veterans, break into a North Dakota silo site, hang signs, spill their blood on the lid and spray paint “Disarm” on the top of it.
This is an actual picture of the clowns cutting the locks on the gate!
(It ought to come in handy in court!)
The three, Greg Boertje-Obed, 51, and Michael Walli, 57, both military veterans from Duluth, Minn., and Carl Kabat, 72, a retired priest from St. Louis, were arrested on the spot. (Minot Daily News)
** The New Editor has the full story on this very strange Leftist event.
The Pioneer Press reported:
The Wisconsin-based group Nukewatch, in a statement, said the men were able to break a lock and enter the silo site Tuesday morning, paint the word “disarm” on the silo lid and pour some of their blood on the lid.
The Star Tribune has more:
“We have chosen to start the process of transformation and disarmament by hammering on and pouring our blood on components of the Minuteman III nuclear missile system,” the men said in a statement posted on the Internet at www.jonahhouse.org.
The three joined for a group picture before the broke into the North Dakota E-8 Minuteman III Missile Silo, June 20, 2006.
“Swords into Plowshares, Spears into Pruning Hooks.”
Huh? That is just too bizarre!
Here is more on the clown’s from their website:
On Tuesday morning, June 20, 2006, a Roman Catholic priest and two war veterans were arrested at a nuclear missile silo in North Dakota after they hammered on the lid and entry hatch, spray painted “It’s a sin to build a nuclear weapon” and hung banners on the fence. The action effectively took the nuclear weapon off-line. It cannot be used until it is repaired.
The webiste also offers instructions on building your own guantanamo cage for demonstrations.
They are still in jail… In their clown suits(?)
This same community of confused Leftists protested in front of the White House during Holy Week against the US Empire.
Resist the US Empire’s Crucifixion of Afghanistan and Iraq, and Now it’s Plans to Attack Iran.
But, thankfully there are good men like Ladd Erickson around to protest America from these Leftists and their dangerous acts…
Erickson, McLean County prosecutor said in the Grand Forks Herald, “We take clowns breaking into a nuclear facility serious in McLean County.”
