The Left Vs. The Troops: Yet Again
There’s a reason that the Left has to keep telling anyone who’ll listen that they support the troops; it’s because they keep doing and saying things that you would expect someone who hated the troops to do.
For example, here’s the The Pittsburge Organizing Group,
March 19 War Anniversary Protest
Evict the military recruitment station, cage the recruiters!
When: Wednesday, March 19
March: Departs at 6:30pm for the Military Recruiting Station
Where: Meet at the dinosaur sculpture in front of Carnegie Library (4400 Forbes Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15213)
This March 19 hundreds of cities across the U.S. will hold events to mark the anniversary of the war in Iraq and remember the tragic toll the world has and continues to pay; nearly 4,000 U.S. soldiers killed, 30,000 wounded, at least 100,000 Iraqis killed, four million displaced, and nearly a trillion dollars squandered.
While there will be events in Washington, D.C. and elsewhere, members of Pittsburgh Organizing Group (POG) feel it is important that there be a local event connected to our community’s long-standing, successful efforts to use education and action to oppose the war and undermine the militarism that leads to perpetual war(s).
On Wednesday, March 19, POG will be holding a torch-lit march to a modern day castle of abominations–our local military recruiting station. If the station remains open, we intend to evict it and everything inside of it, occupy the location, and transform it into something useful for the community. We’ll also be bringing a movable cage in which to confine military recruiters until they no longer pose a danger to our friends and neighbors.
Yes, they’re planning to storm a recruiting station, evict the people inside by force, and cage the members of the military inside so that those soldiers will, “no longer pose a danger to our friends and neighbors.”
Those are not the actions of people who support the troops, patriots, or even decent people. But, these sort of protests are common on the Left and supported by most liberals, who, with rare exceptions either turn a blind eye to these sorts of protests or even support them outright. What does that say about the state of liberalism in this country?
