All they do is profane


LGF staff meeting

This is from the Daou Report
MICHELLE MALKIN WADES INTO THE GUTTER: The blog world is certainly not for the political faint of heart. Personal attacks, harsh language, and hyperbole are routine. But in this post, Michelle Malkin sheds every last vestige of decency: "THE GHOULS OF THE LEFT - They support the troops...by partying over their deaths." Her post links to a Little Green Footballs entry that makes the same odious argument, namely that this group is throwing "parties" on the day that we cross 2000 U.S. military deaths in Iraq.

Here's how the actual events are described: "Events to mark the 2,000th reported U.S. military death will range from candlelight vigils to public actions that illustrate the size of the death toll." Surely, these aren't "parties." I spent years in Beirut, I lived and breathed war, I watched friends get blown to pieces, I've seen horrors I hope Malkin never has to see. Those who are fighting to stop this war deserve the utmost respect, whether or not you agree with their politics. Prominent bloggers like Malkin should know better than to soil our public discourse with this kind of garbage...
.. Rant over

The American Friends Service Committee, otherwise known as the Quakers, are planning to hold memorials for the 2000 dead Americans in Iraq.

Only Little Green Fucktards would accuse the Quakers of celebrating death.

Peter, who is a nice guy, doesn't get it. These guys can only slander and distort because they are cowardly scum. Malkin slanders the 442nd RCT freely, by implying that internment was necessary. I say 21 Medals of Honor and a Presidential Unit Citation says differently, but why let facts get in the way. Johnson is a raving bigot.

All these people can do is soil the public discourse. They can't participate, they can only shriek and attack.
