NO REALLY, we support the troops!

C.I.R. Press Editorial

WASHINGTON, D.C. – On this lovely Sunday afternoon I just want to draw your attention to two wonderful stories that show how much the “we support the troops just not this war” group really support them. The photo is just from one of those anti-war shirt sites on the net, insinuating that the US trains terrorists… as in our military is a bunch of terrorists. I felt it helped sum up the sentiments of the anti-military wacko asses.

Story one: Slain G.I.’s ma spurs anti-war T-shirt ban

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A woman whose Marine son died while serving in Iraq is fighting to keep his name off anti-war T-shirts.

Judy Vincent learned last year that Cpl. Scott Vincent's name is among about 1,700 included on a T-shirt being sold by an Arizona man over the Internet. The front of the shirt reads "Bush Lied" and the back reads "They Died."

The woman, whose son was killed in April 2004, pushed for Oklahoma legislators to pass a law that makes it a misdemeanor to use a soldier's name or likeness for advertising purposes without consent. The law goes into effect this November.

The shirt vendor, Dan Frazier of Flagstaff, Ariz., issued an open letter to family members praising the soldiers' bravery and sacrifice, but said he would not stop selling the merchandise.

Ah, nothing like ignoring the wishes for someone to stop using your lost loved one’s name without permission in a way you do not support at all. The man is so thankful for the “bravery and sacrifice” because now he can bash Bush and make money off that sacrifice. What a truly patriotic man.

Story two: ACLU Sues for Anti-Gay Group That Pickets at Troops’ Burials

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- A Kansas church group that protests at military funerals nationwide filed suit in federal court, saying a Missouri law banning such picketing infringes on religious freedom and free speech.

The American Civil Liberties Union filed the lawsuit Friday in the U.S. District Court in Jefferson City, Mo., on behalf of the fundamentalist Westboro Baptist Church, which has outraged mourning communities by picketing service members' funerals with signs condemning homosexuality.

The church and the Rev. Fred Phelps say God is allowing troops, coal miners and others to be killed
because the United States tolerates gay men and lesbians…
Thank God we have the ACLU to support such disgraceful people. What the hell is the deal with the ACLU? Let me see they sue for gay rights last week, this week they sue FOR gay-bashers. And people wonder why the court system is so tied up in this country. It is thanks to groups like the ACLU that are lawsuit happy, even if it involves putting more pain into suffering people’s lives. How does this crap not qualify as the beloved "hate speech" liberals love to talk about?

I would find it interesting to see them protest at a Cindy Sheehan rally, letting her know that it isn’t Bush’s fault her son died… it is the homosexuals that did it to her son. I wonder what her response would be. To a normal person BOTH are wrong. As much as I disdain Cindy and think she is a traitor at least she doesn’t seem to get her jollies from crashing funerals. Brownie point for Cindy and the “one finger salute” to the ACLU and the so called inbred church.
