Liberals Vs. The Military In San Francisco

It’s no secret that a lot of liberals hate the military, but only in cities like San Francisco, where they dominate the political scene from top to bottom, do they politically dare to do things like this,

“The annual aerial show by the U.S. Navy’s Blue Angels — a San Francisco tradition dating back to 1981 that pumps millions into the local economy — is running into opposition from three local peace advocacy groups that are calling for a permanent halt to the popular Fleet Week flyover.

CodePink, Global Exchange and Veterans for Peace, Chapter 69, are working with Supervisor Chris Daly on a Board of Supervisors resolution to address concerns over the Blue Angels.

Daly acknowledged he is considering a call to halt the flyovers because, he said, “they seem dangerous and unnecessary.” Daly said he plans on introducing the resolution as early as Tuesday, but is still drafting the language. A resolution is not legally binding, but states a board position.

…Veterans for Peace takes issue with the pro-military message and the recruiting efforts that come along with the annual visit as well as what it refers to as the “noise pollution.” The group calls the event a public safety risk, pointing to the April crash of a Blue Angels plane during an air show in Beaufort, S.C.

…CodePink has launched an online petition, signed by more than 500 people to date, calling on leaders to end the flyovers for reasons of public safety, air pollution and fuel waste.

Cox said the resolution would establish that city leaders and the public are not in support of having the Blue Angels.

“We can then take the next steps we have to legally stop them,” he said.”

Do you know what the difference is between the liberals targeting the Blue Angels because they promote the military and the average liberal in DC like Hillary Clinton, John Murtha, and John Edwards? Nothing but numbers. If the whole country were as liberal as San Francisco, they’d be openly contemptuous of the military and people who choose to serve. Of course, on the other hand, if the whole country was as liberal as San Fran, our military would be so small that we’d have to beg Canada to defend us if we were attacked, so it’s probably a moot point.
