The Republicans are all up in arms about what they consider the unpatriotic MoveOn advertisement. Not just that, but some spineless Democrats supported the amendment to criticize MoneOn, as well.
Yes, these are the same Republican traitors who lied repeatedly to disparage their ex-military political opponents. How many of these traitors were silent or openly behind the Swift Boating of John Kerry? Yet, when MoveOn buys an ad that is factual, they’re all up in arms. Does any of this seem just a little bit hypocritical?
Olberman has a great piece on this, tonight. Watch this over at Crooks and Liars.
Keep in mind that our own government, against the will of the vast majority of Americans, just now defeated the restoration of Habeas Corpus and defeated a bill to support the military, but they have the hypocrisy to object to free and honest speech.
This type of blind hypocrisy, as ugly as it is, is what we have come to expect from our Republican party. However, this amendment had the support of many Democrats as well.
I generally avoid disparaging remarks about the Democratic party, as there is plenty of lies, hate end venom coming from the Republican Party. However, this warrants a big acknowledgment on the part of the Democratic voters. We can’t just sit by silently while our own elected officials make a mockery of our rights and our government. Call your representatives and find out why they caved to the hypocrites. What? Is free speech no longer an American freedom? We can lie and slander Kerry, but can’t even ask if Political Hack Betrayus is betraying his position, his oath, and the American people?
Call and write your newspaper, and your representatives. I’m taking all my Democratic donations and giving them to MoveOn so they can keep up the good fight.
