    Wonderful reporting!

    You are doing an outstanding job, please be safe!

    I’m really looking forward to the comprehensive report on all of this. Will you be in St. Paul for the Republican National Convention?

    great job so far

    Zombie, you’re doing a great job.

    Here is another article about Code Pink incident in Denver.

    Been following your coverage of this on LGF. You’re doing a stellar job, and it is much appreciated. You deserve a freakin’ medal or two for all you’ve been doing.

    Excellent!

    Now off to St.Paul?

    Hilariously, Infowars was covering the same riot. Alex Jones being…well, Alex Jones, used the arrests as a opportunity to scream oppression or cover-up or whatever fit the bill best at the time.

    All while conveniently ignoring that the sole purpose of the riot was to cause a disturbance.

    You win again at photojournalism. Everyone else should just put there camera’s away.

    Great work in Denver, Zombie. You should be proud.

    Nice reporting as usual Mr (or Ms) zombie.

    My opinion of the code pink person getting pushed is, maybe the officer could’ve been…a bit less forceful, however, she was the one who was provoking him. So basically, do you shoot a lion repeatedly with a BB gun if you don’t want it to hurt you?

    I think she was doing it to stir this bullcrap about police brutality and basically get attention.

    Please tell me your going to cover the Republican Convention!

    I have a deep overriding feeling the circus the nutters will cause there will make the DNC look like a dinner at my aunt’s house.

    Hmm, the Falun Gong marchers, for some reason, didn’t mention the FG’er who disembowled his family because he was searching for the “wheel of law” in their stomachs. Nor did they mention the FG’er who lit her 8-year-old daughter on fire to protest China’s “tyranny.” Hmmm, nor did they mention the fact that they venerate an immortal guru who can levitate and who claimed to be the reincarnation of Buddha. Wonder why they left all that crazy shit out? Must be a coincidence.

    Japan can take steps to protect its society from Aum, America can attack the Branch Davidians, but China has no right to protect itself from Falun Gong? What an unfair double standard the world puts on China. No wonder they’re all so distrustful of the West.

  13. 13Ken on Sep 3, 2008 at 4:06 pm:

    Oh, I should also mention that those pictures on the “Savagery of China’s Communist Party” banner aren’t even of FG, either. The three largest ones (left to right) are from the Cultural Revolution, one from the (as it says on the banner) “Tiananmen Square Massacre,” and the other says “persecution of Christians,” the others I can’t see. I wonder why they only wrote it in Chinese and not in English also. Were they hoping non-Chinese-speaking Americans would see contextless photos and incorrectly associate them with China’s so-called persecution of Falun Gong? Also, how ironic that the FG’ers chose to write their sign in simplified Chinese, which was part of the Communist Party’s 1950′s literacy campaign.

    Awesome coverage, Zombie! Your courage and devotion to your journalism should earn you an award.
    Out of your various pictures, my favorite was probably, in your article about the anarchists who tried to start riots before the cops stopped them (And I definitely salute you for how brave you were in that situation), the picture about the anarchists being forced off the sidewalk back into the civic center park, who then expressed their anger by forming a line, jumping up and down and chanting. Seeing that put two images into my mind:
    1. A bunch of chimpanzees or orangutans at a zoo going wild for the tourists (Though I regret that that comparison may be insulting towards chimpanzees and orangutans, which tend to be intellectually superior to most of the anarchists seen in Denver and St. Paul).
    2. A bunch of spoiled children throwing temper tantrums when they’ve been denied some new toy (That comparison is probably more accurate, since most anarchist youths are spoiled trust- fund brats whose parents neglected to teach them how to treat others respectfully and how to control their tempers).
    Way to go zombie! Keep up the good work!

    I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: “You commenters are some of the most pathetic bunch of queers I have ever had the misfortune to meet. Stone cold homos.”

    But this time, instead of getting all misty eyed over some some broke-ass seal with teeth marks on it’s ass while missing out on some of the most awsome titties this side of the bay bridge*, you go even further down the homo-road.

    You fools keep blabbering about some queen named “Saint Paul” or “Ru Paul” and some sort of convention or something. Meanwhile, on the first picture are two hot looking babes dressed up in full-on bad-girl cop gear, with more sexy leather on them than you’d see at a stip club in Houston, Texas. And none of you even bothered to mention this.

    Now I know some drag queen named named St. Paul can sometimes be kinda sexy… if you just don’t look too closely for an adams apple. And you happen to be into that.

    But there ain’t no way he’s gonna be better lookin’ than two hotties looking for an excuse to play good cop / bad cop. Cuz that is my idea of true romance.

    Zombie, I’ve been a lurker around your site for probably over a year now, and I just want to take this opportunity to thank you for all the trouble you go through to get these pictures. I wish you had somewhere I could donate to keep you supplied with film (or cards or whatnot).

  17. 17Drexl Spivey on Sep 10, 2008 at 11:24 am:

    SentWest, you can donate to Zombie, but it will take a little effort on your part. Poke arround on the main page and you can find an e-mail address for communication. But it is deliberately made difficult (but not impossible) to find in order to screen out unneeded e-mail.

    How do I know this? Because Zombie wrote this on the webpage. So consider it a fun way to spend an afternoon.

    And if memory serves me correctly, Zombie would like to get a camera that can take long video shots. Zombie is good at getting photos and short video clips, but not able to get long video clips. I think this was brought up in the post about the Christopher Hitchens debate.

    “Pajamas Media and Little Green Footballs”?????

    ugh….I used to love this site too. I’m gonna go throw up now.

    Ken is a Communist from Red China. Great, we’ve got ErBu doing ops here. Well, I guess it’s a badge of honor of sorts.

  20. 20Adam on Jun 16, 2009 at 2:42 pm:

    btw, upon looking back on these pictures, as I examine the puppet parade, I’m struck by how ignorant, mindlessly ideology- driven, and lacking of any real sense of history the people involved with that parade, specifically when it came to the images of the “Historical” women representing certain virtues. I mean, using Winona LaDuke, a woman the majority of Americans have never heard of (I mean, being Ralph Nader’s running mate isn’t exactly something that brings you into the public eye a lot), to represent Respect? If they were trying to go with historical women representing Respect, wouldn’t someone like Abigail Adams or Susan B. Anthony be more fitting, and more widely recognized?
