Day of the Moonbats: Stop Caterpillar

Moonbats far and wide are protesting heavy equipment manufacturer Caterpillar today, in the name of flattened protester Rachel "Our Lady of the Royal and Blessed Pancake" Corrie.

Corrie was run over by an Israeli Defense Force bulldozer when she stepped in front of it to attempt to prevent a Palistinian house from being demolished. The house was the residence of a suicide bomber. The IDF has a practice of demolishing the homes of suicide bombers.

On April 13, join groups all over the world in opposing Caterpillar sales of home-crushing bulldozers to Israel. That day, Caterpillar shareholders will meet in Chicago and will discuss a resolution on sales of bulldozers to Israel. We're calling on groups to organize local demonstrations at CAT-related locations, such as board of directors' offices or CAT dealerships, to send a strong message that cooperation in human rights abuses is unacceptable.

The Caterpillar Corporation has been in the business of war profiteering, profiting from the violation of the human rights of the Palestinian people and from the escalating cycle of violence between the Israelis and the Palestinians.

Like I said, the moonbats are doing their thing all over the globe. I'm sure they're going to sue AT&T for letting the IDF use telephones, or perhaps Sony for letting them listen to the radio next.

To hear them tell it, all of Caterpillar's products have minds of their own - kind of like the old ABC Movie of the Week and Theodore Sturgeon science fiction story Killdozer.

What's next, to insist that Bob the Builder is evil because he uses a bulldozer?

I think that Cat should respond to the demands of the protestors and follow their "good citizen" statement on their website by providing deep discounts to the IDF.

After all, nothing's more "good citizen" by providing tools to PREVENT terrorism.
