...we support the troops.
How many times have you heard that line from a liberal celebrity (yes, I realize that's an oxymoron), or a Democratic politician, as they try to reconcile two positions that are clearly irreconcilable.
Apparently, some of their friends on the kook fringe didn't get the memo. Not only do they oppose the war, they also despise the troops, some of whom died decades ago. From the AP:
ORCAS ISLAND, Wash- Vandals burned dozens of small American flags that decorated veterans' graves for Memorial Day and replaced many of them with hand-drawn swastikas, authorities said Monday.
We're still waiting for a statement of outrage from Senators Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell. Ditto for Washington Congressman Rick Larsen, whose district includes Orcas Island.
I think the term "liberal celebrity" is more of a redundancy or tautology than an oxymoron, a contradiction of terms. Yes, there are a few celebrities who aren't liberal, but the overwhelming majority....
A message to anti-war troop supporters --
If you want to support the troops, begin by respecting them.
