Flag desecration down in Texas



It seems a good Amurican by the name of Larry Northern decided that what to do was to plow his pick-up over hundreds of flags and crosses representing the fallen soldiers from Iraq which lined the road near where Cindy Sheehan and others are staging their peace vigil.

Wonder why the right wing patriotic flag defenders aren't howling their heads off? They're strangly silent.

Crooks and Liars has some video. Be sure to scroll down and check out the posts below the one linked above, especially the clip from the Daily Show. Good stuff.

In other news from Texas, a local father of a fallen soldier who agrees with Sheehan has allowed her to camp on an acre of his land which is actually closer to Bush's fake "ranch".

WHEN, oh WHEN, will you people REALIZE that crosses and flags only have a place in the Republican party??? Those used by progressives or democrats are deserving of desecration.

Flag desecration?! Why do pro-war conservatives hate America?

This whole episode just proves that conservatives don't mean it when they say they support the troops. They only support Bush, no matter how much he betrays the soldiers.

Patriotisim is a trick perpertrated by all goverments to brainwash their citizens into supporting, and fighting for that country.
Are their reasons to fight? Yes when that same goverment slowly erodes your freedoms and takes away what is yours or your neighbors.
I dont recall anyone from Iraq doing that to me.

Man, that comeback was good for a morning laugh. Maybe I should just start being a smartass to my many detractors on DDP. Its more in my character than diplomacy. In fact, I could use that comment word for word on many occasions.

Being a smart-ass has it's place, especially for someone like the anonymous person above. They deserve nothing but the best.

Sarcasm; it's not just for breakfast anymore.

And.. I guess better late than never... to Maybesomeday...
Dissenter's comment was meant as sarcasm to point out how the right has attempted to "own" the flag and patriotism.
I regret that you apparently missed it.

Proof that I am not perfect - albeit human --unlike the description that others would like to categorize me into in various posts el Dopester.

Thanks!

Oh and read Cindy Sheehan's letter today as it is a must read. Her movement is taking on a life even without her. Prediction - George Bush will abandon his "sancuary" in Crawford and start using the Camp David for better security so he can continue to hide from the truth a few mor days/months.
