Hey I wasn't kidding when I was ranting about something being wrong in our country. The right wing seems to think it owns the right to be patriotic and that it owns the right to the flag. We can thank faux patriots like Ann Coulter, Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh for fueling hatred for those who espouse peace and justice by calling them traitors and writing books like "Treason" to describe those who don't agree with the President of the US.
I urge all liberals and Democrats to wear American Flag lapel pins and to fly American Flags. We are patriots too. Blogger Orcinus today has a very good piece about A Terrorist who Targets LIberals.
Be afraid, be very afraid for this is the result of an irresponsible media, and irresponsible White House spin, irresponsible Bush commercials on TV and an unjust war. Liberals have been demonized in the media since Bill Clinton's presidency. I find it interesting that Bush keeps calling for democracy and freedom in other countries yet his political party is hell bent on stifling it in our very own country. There is something wrong with this picture.
