They aren't Anti War..they are pro-jihadism, fascism, communism, and Stalinism.

Christopher Hitchens, author, columnist, and the only reason to read Vanity Fair, has written a great piece for SLATE in which he exposes the ignorance that has permeated most of the writers at NY Times(and lets face it the fish sticks from the head down) as well as most left wing liberals especially those found in Hollywood(so much money yet so little intelligence) when it comes to their support and understanding of organization such as "ANSWER" and"United for Peace and Justice".

He quotes a paragraph from the NY Times, and then goes on to prove just how fucking ignorant the MSM is:

The protests were largely sponsored by two groups, the Answer Coalition, which embodies a wide range of progressive political objectives, and United for Peace and Justice, which has a more narrow, antiwar focus.
(quoting from the NY Times)

The name of the reporter on this story was Michael Janofsky. I suppose that it is possible that he has never before come across "International ANSWER," the group run by the "Worker's World" party and fronted by Ramsey Clark, which openly supports Kim Jong-il, Fidel Castro, Slobodan Milosevic, and the "resistance" in Afghanistan and Iraq, with Clark himself finding extra time to volunteer as attorney for the génocidaires in Rwanda. Quite a "wide range of progressive political objectives" indeed, if that's the sort of thing you like. However, a dip into any database could have furnished Janofsky with well-researched and well-written articles by David Corn and Marc Cooper—to mention only two radical left journalists—who have exposed "International ANSWER" as a front for (depending on the day of the week) fascism, Stalinism, and jihadism.

Futher into the piece, he writes:

To be against war and militarism, in the tradition of Rosa Luxemburg and Karl Liebknecht, is one thing. But to have a record of consistent support for war and militarism, from the Red Army in Eastern Europe to the Serbian ethnic cleansers and the Taliban, is quite another. It is really a disgrace that the liberal press refers to such enemies of liberalism as "antiwar" when in reality they are straight-out pro-war, but on the other side. Was there a single placard saying, "No to Jihad"? Of course not. Or a single placard saying, "Yes to Kurdish self-determination" or "We support Afghan women's struggle"? Don't make me laugh. And this in a week when Afghans went back to the polls, and when Iraqis were preparing to do so, under a hail of fire from those who blow up mosques and U.N. buildings, behead aid workers and journalists, proclaim fatwahs against the wrong kind of Muslim, and utter hysterical diatribes against Jews and Hindus.

Throw in the lovely ladies of "Code Pinko" and you have just a small list of facist loving, despot supporting, jihadist embracing, anti american, anti democracy, organizations that the MSM, left wing liberals, most dimocrats, the so called "hollywood intelligentsia" and the ACLU support.
