See, Les, It IS Everywhere... LeftWorld Quoted Verbatim:

The Code Pink Hate-America Happy Hour

It’s a canard of the hard anti-war Left that they all, without exception, hate the war, but support the troops. Loathe the president but love the country. In fact, it’s a talking point that hating the war and loathing the president are very special, smarter ways of loving one’s country than all that Neanderthal flag-draping and militaristic ”Don’t-Tread-On-Me” rhetoric on the right.

You know, because, why send a soldier a box of Slim Jims when you can jimmy the lock at the local fascist war-machine recruiting office and put it out of commission, right? Dissent is patriotic, especially when it involves pointless perpetrations of vandalism.

Well, that’s the logic on display on the anti-war Left these days. Saturday, I went to a Code Pink and Iraq Veterans Against the War karaoke night to check it out first hand. They always say they truly love the country. Surely, after a couple beers, they’d be raising one for Old Glory and singing God Bless America.

Wrong. The first break in the singing, which consisted of lilting old protest songs and wilted old hippies from another war, came a few minutes after I walked in. An emcee from one of the sponsoring groups took the stage to announce the purpose of the night.

Emcee: We’re here tonight to recognize that the government is moving us in the wrong direction. And it’s not just now. It’s a whole series of what we call wrong direction.

Audience Member: 200 years!

Emcee: How many years?

Audience: 200!

Emcee: 200 years of so much hypocrisy, so much not understanding what we’re doing, not only to ourselves, but to the rest of the world.

Get it? Since the Founding, we’ve been going the wrong direction. A beautiful start to a night of loving the country and the troops, first and foremost.

Jeez its got to be tough, be so bloody self-righteous, pure of heart and mind with the love of country, hearth and home flowing through ones veins. 200 years in the wrong direction. Wow. So in other words the whole Revolution, Civil War WW1 and saving the world in WW2 and everything in between has been wrong. Who'd have thought it? So was ending slavery going in the wrong direction? How about giving women the vote,another bad idea? Jeez, I sure wish I was as smart and enlightened like these Code Pink gals. Why a red-blooded, heterosexual pro-American guy could almost be jealous he wasn't a gal 'cuz then I'd be a "Code Pink Gal!!'' J'Mac.

That was a wonderful article DONAL, thanks for posting it. Until today I don't recall ever reading any of her work.

These animals are just communists and I'd give anything to watch them do an honest days work. I'm gonna take a guess and say that the majority wouldn't have a CLUE what that entails! What a bunch of spoiled rotten babies.
