Just wondering where a few people are these days. They were so prominent a year ago. Now they’ve disappeared. Perhaps their principles weren’t as strong as they professed. Perhaps their motivations weren’t what they said.
I’m talking, of course, about these folks:
Iraq War protesters. Anti-war zealots. Anti-Gitmo fanatics. Military haters.
Was it all just Bush hating and bashing? Of course it was. They weren’t brave enough to state it at the time. But, due to their conspicuous absence, it’s obvious where their focus was.
Now we have the socialist-in-chief running things and they’re silent. Even though the same policies are being carried on. Even stronger than when Bush was president.
So, where are they? Well, I presume that these same automata are out picketing for the government to take over the rest of our freedoms. Cloaked in healthcare reform. Stimulus. Corporate takeovers. Control of free enterprise salaries. They don’t have a single cogent thought among them. They just blindly do whatever the goverment tells them. They’d have to be doing this blindly, since a second’s thought would reveal the socialist schemes for what they are.
Personally I love to see them rail against normal Americans who are protesting this latest takeover of our freedoms. Their actions show up as cowardly behavior. Their actions show up as fear that they’re policies will be seen for what they truly are. Their actions speak volumes louder than their words. Each time they try to shut down legitimate debate they show their true colors. I’m betting that it’s yellow.
