Vets Vs Moonbats, Part 4
His conversion to the Religion of Peace made him a bigger asshole. Islam gave him a whole new set of reasons to hate America. He wrote in 1994, "When we begin to look critically at the Constitution of the United States, we see that in its main essence it is diametrically opposed to what Allah has commanded." He was suspected in connection with a dozen different homicides, finally getting his radical ass arrested for shooting a drug dealer in the legs four times. After getting out of that, he shot two cops, killing one. That put him on the FBI list a second time, got him arrested, convicted, and sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole in 2002.
Jamil portrayed himself as an innocent Muslim victim, "This matter is not just about me. It is about Islam and the entire Muslim Ummah. There is a pre-meditated conspiracy to destroy Islamic leadership. When the truth is established, the disbelievers will start to do things." Consequently, the leading Muslim organizations love him. CAIR, the AMC, ISNA and the Muslim American Society issued a joint statement: "The charges against Imam Jamil are especially troubling because they are inconsistent with what is known of his moral character and past behavior as a Muslim." These organizations never met a Muslim terrorist they didn't like.
And that's why this chick is toting Jamil's plea around on a sign: The lefties love cop killers. But I don't.
The socialists were hectoring the crowd on a bullhorn. One of the slogans amplified to the crowds was to support the resistance in Iraq. Yup, you read that right. The commies wanted the useful idiots to support the insurgents killing and wounding our guys in Iraq, beheading Iraqis who work for America, and driving truck bombs into marketplaces. Radicals, have you no sense of decency!?
Suddenly, a woman in a "Viva The Reagan Revolution" T-shirt jumped in the middle of the circle of socialists, waving an American flag and holding a sign: "Win the War or lose to Jihad!"
The commies mobbed her, covering her sign with theirs, lest a sane message infect the moonbats.
There was a struggle for the flag.
One of the commies grabbed the flag and tore it up while laughing at the woman he stole it from.
He walked around showing off the torn flag, his trophy, to his commie pals. I asked him why he tore that flag in half. "It's IMPERIALISM!" he shouted. That's your interpretation. What about her free speech? "It's HATE speech. It supports imperialism," growled the commie. That's your opinion, says I. What about free speech? "She shouldn't BE here!" yelled the commie, making haste to escape me into the crowd.
Flying the flag is hate speech to the commies. That is a core value of our political opposition. They are not against the war. They are against America and all it stands for. While our democracy grants them freedom of speech, in their world freedom of speech belongs only to them and any dissent is swiftly crushed.
This hammerhead was ranting about the United States poisoning the world with depleted uranium and giving anecdotes about people suffering radiation poisoning from DU. The only problem with this particular conspiracy theory is that depleted uranium is about as radioactive as ordinary dirt. That's why they called it "depleted." The US military has guys who have been wounded by DU, carry bits of DU in their bodies where it enters the bloodstream, and they have documented no ill effects from it other than what you could expect from having metal fragments punch through your body.
But in the protest world, all you need to be considered an expert is some paper, glue, and posterboard accompanied by a bullhorn.
They certainly are.
Although this one was pretty cute.
And this one was kinda cute, too, though I suspect she's using the protest as an excuse to talk dirty to crowds.
Gosh, another caricature of Bush. Didn't see THAT coming. You know, lefties are like little kids who can watch the same movie over and over and over and still laugh at the same jokes every time like they just heard it.
Ramsey Clark, former attorney general under LBJ, and now attorney to the slimiest dictators on the planet, spoke with the Pentagon as his backdrop. The countries building nukes couldn't hurt us if they tried, he cried. The Pentagon's budget is too big. You can't make that many weapons without killing people. The defense budget should be cut in half, then cut in half again. Personally, I'd rather see Ramsey Clark cut in half, then cut in half again.
Basically, this demonstration was a political follow-on attack to the terrorist strike on the Pentagon on September 11. ANSWER and Al Qaeda both consider the Pentagon a target for roughly equivalent reasons. ANSWER sees the Pentagon as an obstacle to insurgent socialist movements. Al Qaeda sees the Pentagon as an obstacle to insurgent jihadi movements. Their interests neatly converge on the Pentagon.
"Support Our Deserters" is what the lefties mean by supporting the troops.
Cindy Sheehan, the Mother of All Moonbats, took the stage to thunderous applause and whoops from the crowd. She bitched about how cold it was and then casually said her son, Casey, died for nothing. [Tantor Note: Actually Casey died trying to save his buddies trapped under fire. That's Something.] Sheehan cried that America is fighting to make the corporations rich and line the pockets of George Bush, Dick Cheney and all the other war criminals. She didn't much care for the Gathering of Eagles, either, who don't realize that America is not the universe. [Tantor Note: Agreed, America is not the whole universe, just the sweet center of the universe around which everything else revolves.] Referring to the Pentagon, Cindy says they take this death and destruction and export it around the world. [Tantor Note: If I have to explain to you why this is wrong, GET OFF MY BLOG!]
"Let's stop this bullshit now!" cried Cindy Sheehan. At last, Cindy and I and the whole moonbat world agreed. The crowd took the sentiment to heart and began decamping from the rally without hearing out the next dozen rants of the remaining speakers.
Oddly enough, not one of the speakers mentioned that jihadis flew a jumbo jet into the Pentagon behind them and killed 184 innocent people.
When all was said and done, this is what they really wanted.
And not a single protestor laid a finger on the Wall.
