It's both creepy and sad that no one among the either the parade organizers or the covering media thought there was anything wrong with this.

I couldn't help thinking that this picture is like a correlation to the things written in the book of Revelations...

I can see where it would have a lot of Turner Diaries fans hyperventilating, fer shure. Looklook! The New World Order izza comin!! (to the theme of Darth Vader in the first film -- of which there were only three made --)

Obversely, given the proven skill levels of stormtroopers, one could wonder if this is a commentary of what a joke the UN is considered to be in the US.

I mean who can say no to a man in uniform. Just ask any Iraqi.

I'm afraid of what this will lead to though.
Next year might be a Tron Guy homage.
Row upon row of pasty, glow in the dark geeks, their bellies swollen with pride, frisbees held at port arms.

Gack, I feel ill.
