I have a theory...

I have a theory about Bush Admirer.

BA posts to most of the various Indymedia sites, usually knows a lot about protests, but distorts it to come from the angle of right-wing propeganda. I wander if BA isn't a Bush Admirer after all, but a person (or group of people) who has taken it upon their self(s) to play "devil's advocate" to the movement. I have seen BA posts result in both:

a) anger, general BA-hating

and
b) more coherent, beter articulated arguments.

Whether or not BA is on "our side," I think that we should think about the potential possitive side of having people like this on our sites.

No, Bush Admirer is an Evil-Doer 18.Jan.2003 12:24

skeptic

I doubt anybody would have the time, energy, or lack of a life, to play "Devil's Advocate" like you suggest.

Bush Admirer is an Evil-doer pure and simple.
Treat him as such.
