I'm not usually the type for demonstrations, but...

If I were near Washington DC on Martch 17, I'd want to be joining in the counter-protest. Michelle Malkin writes:

....Last time the left-wing, peace-loving fun bunch came to town, their minions gone wild threw rocks at a military recruitment office in D.C's Dupont Circle neighborhood and at a local Fox News van, broke through a Capitol Hill police security cordon, spray painted the Capitol Grounds with impunity, desecrated the Lone Sailor statue that stands watch at the U.S. Navy Memorial and reportedly spat at disabled Iraq war veteran Josh Sparling as he voiced his support for his fellow troops.

Tens of thousands of anti-war demonstrators were at that event last month. How many showed up with Sparling to counter the far Left? Forty.

Now, imagine our troops getting word of that count. They're walking the talk, committed to the long, hard mission of counterinsurgency in Iraq and abroad, risking life and limb - and only 40 of their fellow Americans bothered to represent them in the nation's capital?

Don't get mad. Get moving.

These protests have nothing to do with being against war. They are only opposed to America and her allies. The real issue is nihilism vs belief. To the nihilist, belief is an affront, and patriotic Americans still believe that there are things we should fight for. So they hate us. If France still believed in fighting for freedom, democracy and human rights, then the fake-pacifists would be burning the Tricolor.

To show the flag in opposition to those poison-reptiles is to demonstrate for peace, and for liberty, and for life. (And for good taste.)

Smelly hippie lights cig on burning American flag
