BOSTON, U.S.A. – Shameful. Just absolutely shameful.
One blockhead here on the same site in which I blog actually wrote, before the election, that liberals needed to get even with conservatives because the latter accused the former of being unpatriotic. Well, gee, I wonder how we got that idea?
Let me give you a clue: If you profess to love your country, you don’t ever – EVER – burn its flag nor disgrace it in any way! Is that clear enough for you crybabies?
Yet, burning the American flag is exactly what anti-Bush protestors did during the inaugural parade.
The burning of the flag by American citizens is not freedom of speech – it is treason, and should be seriously treated as such. The military burns flags for disposal purposes, but that is the only instance in which a flag should ever be burned.
This reminds me of the protests in London during President Bush’s visit to Britain in November 2003. The protest leaders – most of them associated with the pathetic, Stalin-worshipping, Osama-excusing Stop the War (consider that they formed only nine days after September 11) – assured everyone, oh no, this won’t be an anti-American protest. We’ve nothing against Americans. This is a protest against Bush only. And how did the Great Unwashed finish their protest rally in Trafalgar Square? That’s right – they burned an American flag. So much for being free of anti-Americanism.
Considering that the “Americans” protesting against Bush during his rightful inauguration have so much more in common with the likes of the socialists of Stop the War than your average, income-earning citizen, it’s hardly a surprise, but it makes for a sickening display of unpatriotic sentiment all the same. Bush is our President! If you disgrace the office of the presidency, you disgrace America. Like, oh, what’s his name? Begins with a C … you know, the guy during whose reign true patriots, as Bush referred to in his inauguration speech, “took a sabbatical?”
But we won’t mention that, shall we? No, sexual shenanigans being performed in the Oval Office while Al-Qaeda makes their plans to humiliate America via 9/11 doesn’t constitute a crime. But Bush’s total transformation of Afghanistan and his efforts to transform Iraq in much the same vein does? Oh please, stop the world, I want to get off!
Bush gave a great inaugural speech today. It was a total affirmation of the President’s beliefs in international democracy, in freedom, in liberty. As he said, you cannot have faith in your own democracy while others across the world are crying for theirs.
And do these Lefties ever consider what a gentleman Dubya really is at heart? Richard Nixon hated his enemies and had a vindictive nature, so the vitriol aimed at him was understandable (if warped). But when asked about the protestors saying that he should be impeached and jailed for war crimes, Bush simply smiles and says, “Ain’t democracy a wonderful thing?” He smiles and waves at them all the same. He doesn’t harbor even a lousy ounce of hatred toward his detractors as they have in great tidal waves for him.
God bless you, George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Condolezza Rice, et al. Do America right and proud.
At the end of the day, I suppose the ultimate punishment for these Canuckistani wannabes is simply this: FOUR MORE YEARS! FOUR MORE YEARS! FOUR MORE YEARS!
Go get ‘em, Mr. President!
