My Heroes!

Yesterday, multitudes of "peace-loving" patriotic Americans from coast-to-coast unilaterally invaded Washington and marched on the Capitol grounds, spitefully chanting stuff like "Our Congress, our congress! (yay!)" and the obligatory "Impeach Bush!" and "Bush Lied, Kids Died!" mantras while waving signs and calling for regime change and even rushing the steps of the Capitol Building in a scene reminiscent of Revolutionary France and the storming of the Bastille by the angry peasants incited to regicide by the loathsome, demagogic likes of Marat and Robespierre...

...if not the sheeplike citizenry from the 1976 film Network who are commanded by MSM rabble-rouser Howard Beale (played by Peter Finch) to go to their windows en masse and bleat out "WE'RE MAD AS HELL AND WE'RE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE!" amidst a spectacular lightning storm, cinematically illustrating that the anger is endemic in the population at large (i.e. "Everyone Knows And Feels The Same!") and that the cause of the anger--The "Bullshit"-- has reached such an intolerable level that Mother Nature herself is likewise "mad as hell, and not going to take it anymore!"

But really now. It was a lovely day in the Nation's Capital (even in January, thanks to El Nino), and as for the very close to 300,000,000 too fat and happy citizenry of the United States of America, only tens of thousands (barely enough to fit in a single township) felt the need to march on the Nation's Capital and--supposedly speaking on behalf of the absent 298,000,000-- beg the seethingly envious world to please not hold our country's twice-elected, executive war criminal against us!

Of course, the MSM showcased the angry mob of Bush-haters as if it was a popular, earth-shaking groundswell following up on the landslide that was the mid-term elections like a series of exclamation points mandating the sentence of the plebiscite which demands that we pack up our gear and get out of Iraq post-haste (having no business being there to begin with, you see) and impeach the president (who had no business being president to begin with, you know).

But really now. The new Democratic Majority (who the poor, belligerent, peaceniks actually think want to be seen with them in public) fared poorly by historical standards vis-a-vis the opposition party's fortunes in mid-term elections during a president's second term:

Despite the sound and fury and determination of the Leftist Bush-Haters to electorally install a Congress friendly to their interests--and with a little help from disgruntled conservatives!-- 18 House seats were decided by less than 5,000 votes each (an electoral piddling), and three Senate seats were decided by 2%-- or less-- of the vote.

The majority status itself was achieved by those razor-thin margins.

"Mandate." Pshaw.

They're mice that roar--with the help of the gigantic bullhorns of the sympathetic MSM and Bush-hating bloggers with BIG MOUTHS.

But this is America, and people--or, should Republicus say, "The People" (whatever)--most certainly have the right to assemble and vent their grievances...

...even if they're backward, inverting leftists.

The egocentric, mirror-gazing Left see an inverted, mirror-image of the world (unlike normal people do) and, like Milton's Lucifer, "make heaven a hell and a hell heaven," the good bad and the bad good, the harbingers of Order and Freedom "war-mongers," and the militants for chaos and tyranny "Freedom Fighters."

If Republicus could just pick up those protestors like little wound-up toy-soldiers (which is essentially what they are, as they get both wound up and their marching orders--and talking points, and even how to talk!--from some elite, infallible Authorities who are their founts of "Facts," "The Truth," and "Reality"), he would simply re-invert them towards the direction of Baghdad and have them march down the streets there--by the thousands-- with their signs and pleas for peace, justice, and respect for the constitution.

That's where they'd be--and should be--protesting if they weren't so backward.

Wouldn't that be a sight! The unrelenting harangues of digital pamphleteers like and the Daily Kos about-facing and relentlessly hen-pecking the assorted Iraqi factions and Jihadists like fed-up wives and demanding that they stop the fighting and killing and "Move-on" and act like a "Democracy Now!"

Republicus would be like: "Woo-hoo! Tell it, Michael (Moore)! Way to go, Mrs. Sheehan (after she pitches a tent and organizes a candle-lit vigil in Fallujah)! Hooray for Keith Olbermann (after he calls Muqtada Al Sadr a fat pig)! And there's Barbarella demanding justice for the American soldiers and children slain by the militias!"

And when Spicolli (i.e. Sean Penn) threatened the new American Congress with this:

If they don't stand up and make a resolution as binding as the death toll, we're not going to be behind those politicians...

...he'd be talking about the Maliki government!

But really now. That would never work.

It ain't America over there, and giving them the nagging wife treatment will only result with them being beaten with sticks (as has been the traditional fate of many a nagging wife in Iraq).

But it's worth a try... ;)

Dude! I love the picture of Hanoi Jane there! I guess one is never to old to be an idiot, and she certainly has a track record of it. I will never, as long as I live, forget the sickeing sight of seeing her take a tour given by the Communist Party of Vietnam and watching her admire the Anti-Aircraft guns that had shot down so many american planes.

I never have been a huge supporter of the causes behind the Vietnam 'conflict,' but I never would have dreamed that someone could be that completely unpatriotic, and her case, dare I say 'traitorous?'

As to Rocky, I loved the episodes where he and Bullwinkle went up against Boris and Natasha.

"Bullwinkle," "Boris," and "Natasha?"

You mean Micky, Clubber, and Adrian, don't you?

(ha ha)

Seriously, it comes out that the "peaceniks" vandalized our U.S. Capital with spray paint (spraying stuff like "Our Congress" and "You Can't Stop Us") and smashed the windshield of a newsvan because it was Foxnews').

Nanc, great image...

Just now I have been trying (unsuccessfully) to explain to my 16 year old why people do this. I guess he has a good head on his shoulders... this stuff just baffles him.

ahhh AJ, I just got back and was going to wander down to another posting that I'm sure is waiting for me, but found you already spouting the old right wing lies. If what you have posted is correct, could you explain the following official response from the Chief of Capitol Police? Are the police lying? Are they part of the black helicopter brigade out to bring down the United States? Or maybe, you are wrong yet again? I do hand it to you, you are at least consistently wrong.

"Some members of this group did covertly mark the pavement on the Lower West Terrace during their confrontation with us. Had this been observed, I would have directed arrests to be made. However, the size and continual movement of the crowd provided concealment and made detection of their actions impossible. Once the crowd dispersed, I was appalled and disgusted that any individual, whatever their cause, would deface the grounds of the Capitol. Fortunately, due to the notable efforts of the staff of the Architect of the Capitol, their signs of disrespect were quickly washed away.

Those are the facts. It is my duty to make decisions during such events, quickly determine the best course of action, and give direction to our officers based on the totality of the circumstances. All decisions were mine as Chief of Police and I made them without consultation or influence by any Member of Congress, or Congressional Leadership. I stand by the decisions I made and I take full responsibility for them.

I am extremely proud of you for the discipline and professional manner in which you protected the Capitol Building. Every Member of Congress I have briefed on the matter has expressed the same level of appreciation and admiration."

oops, my bad. I left out the best part where the police chief says it was peaceful except for one small "splinter group" that the cops already new about.

"After reading several press accounts of the events surrounding the demonstration on January 27, 2007, I feel that it is important to set the record straight. During the course of the peaceful anti-war demonstration that attracted tens of thousands of protesters who marched around the Capitol in an exercise of their First Amendment rights, we were confronted with a splinter group that was seeking a confrontation with the police. Law enforcement agencies, including the USCP, are familiar with this group and we know their tactics. "

John, my guess is this guy just isn't worth the effort.

Kelly, did you notice anything, like the police report that brainless over here uses confirming what I wrote?

4:45 PM  
Blogger Kelly said...

John, I didn't quite follow what you were trying to say...

My guess is that the police report backs up what you have been saying....

One thing that buoys me up is that I know there are people like you and Phelonius and Nanc, who are have good common sense and who are just plain good people.

I know I don't know a lot about any of you , but I do know what is important to all of you....and that speaks to your character.

We need those of us who see things as they are to band our voices together so that we can be heard above the roar of those who are trying to tear this country down.

I guess that is why I have always liked coming here.

I feel a common bond with you and "some" of the regulars.

Good. :)

And yes, that's what I meant, that the police report backs what I wrote.

"Houstonmod" is unhinged.

And not one apology.

He is unhinged...and still expect and apology... *shakes head*.

I won't wait up for it.
