Guilt by Association
Charles Johnson of LittleGreenFootballs.com has learned that peace rallies held by the left welcome messages of, well, destruction and hate. Good for those silly lefties.
In all seriousness, though, it's fine to object to the war in Iraq, but when you invite all sorts of whacky stuff, including imperatives to destroy Israel, the whole peace veneer comes off, making the gathering an anti-everything hate fest of people who never left the late 1960s and early 1970s. These burned-out hippies are still wanting another Vietnam to remain relevant, and in their midlife crisis, they return to Washington to scream their heads off.
But the things and people that they bring with them, really, really do make clear that this movement, such as it is, is not about peace, but about the agenda of the far left. These wierdos cannot help themselves, so steeped in their dogma as they are. They simply must come out and cloud the message, making clear that they are the same angry bunch of belligerent brats that raided the Democratic National Convention in 1968.
And thankfully, it gives context to their message.
Of course, the star of the show, Cindy Sheehan, topped of the day by doing whatever it took to get herself arrested.
Her comment was, “The whole world is watching.” But I guess the real question is, "do they care?"
