Cheney Book Tour Stops in Grand Rapids on Wednesday

September 16, 2011

Former Vice President Dick Cheney will be in Grand Rapids on Wednesday as part of his book tour.

The former VP, who justifies torture and other war crimes in his new book In My Time, will be at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel on Wednesday at 5:00PM. At this event Cheney’s daughter Liz will interview him about his book and his life as a politician.

There is no information yet as to whether the event will be open to the public or if it is a ticketed event, but you can count on lots of security.

Cheney has been confronted by anti-war activists during his book tour, especially those with the group Code Pink. In fact, Code Pink has lots of ideas about what to do with Cheney and his book.

The feminist anti-war group has a nice bookmark that you can download and stick inside Cheney’s book. The bookmark provides some good information on Cheney’s record of war crimes during his time as Vice President.

Code Pink is also encouraging people to go to their local bookstores and move Cheney’s book to the Crime Section of the store so that it is accurately categorized. Code Pink activist Medea Benjamin has a concise list of 10 reasons why his book should be moved to the Crime Section.

The anti-war group even put together a short “how to put Cheney’s book in the Crime Section” video. Something to consider the next time you’re at a book store.

    I love this! I can’t tell you the number of times I have moved books of worth and value to place in front of garbage such as this. I will be printing those little bookmarks and helping people understand what this tyrant has done.
