Activist Holds Anti-Nader Hunger Strike

Activist Holds Anti-Nader Hunger Strike

41 minutes ago

SANTA MONICA, Calif. - A peace activist who once fasted for 63 days to protest movie violence and war toys is launching another hunger strike to persuade Ralph Nader to abandon his presidential bid.

Jerry Rubin, 60, said he plans to consume only liquids from Saturday until Nov. 2 if Nader doesn't take a meeting with him.

(snip)

Many believe the votes Nader received in Florida in 2000 would have gone to Democratic candidate Al Gore had Nader sat out the election. Gore lost the state and the national election to George W. Bush by 537 votes.

Rubin is often confused with now-deceased "Chicago Seven" defendant Jerry Rubin. He legally changed his name to Jerry Peace Activist Rubin to avoid confusion with the 60s radical.

1. I was thinking
Of changing my name to John I think Bush is a moron Smith.

John Smith being used instead of my real name, of course. I don't want Ashcroft looking for me.

2. I hold Nader responsible if this man dies
Just like I hold Nader responsible for the deaths of thousands in Iraq.

I continue to await his dropping out of the race.

5. Wow! Talk about faulty logic
I think it was Bush who ordered the invasion in Iraq.

I think it was Clinton who supported sanctions that killed 5,000 children a month.

But Nader is responsible? I think I'll head over to freeprville to see if I can come up with someting as partisan and stupid.

3. very little to
no chance, it was posted here on the evening of the debates that Nader fancied himself 'jumping on the stage dressed in a cape' as if he were some cartoon character who saves the day.

He's lost all touch with reality.
Not so sad as pathetic. :(


Oh, if I were a paying member of DU I'd search & bring up the link, but having no job... well that puts a damper on just about anything like donate to them, other than a weekly jar of peanut butter & a loaf of bread, completely out of the question :>
