Where did all the Left's Anti-War Protesters Go? (Vanity)

Posted on 08/13/2011 1:36:14 PM PDT by Oiao

This is my first post at Freepers. (so if I'm doing it wrong, I'm sure several thousand of you will tell me so, LOL)

Where is all of the Left's Astro Turf money going, since they quit funding the Anti-War protestors?

Where have the professional hacks gone? Code Pink, ANSWER, and even ELF and the likes of them?

Were they just told to 'shut up and sit down' by Soros after the current Administration took over the wars?

As usual, not a peep from the MSM, to include FOX on this.

In that case, we need some more of those fights to for them to spend the money on.

Something like $20 or $30 million spent there, but the MSM would have you believe it was just Union money, unless, no it couldn't be, the Union money and the previous Astro Turf are the same money?

When a leftist is in the White Crib and runs all three wars, what are the left-wing anti-war types going to do? Nothing! The whole mantra of “speaking truth to power” (a slogan I hate), only applies to leftists against Republicans. You are not allowed to “speak truth to power” if there is a Dem in power. You certainly can’t have leftists “speaking truth to power” when a fellow leftist is in power.

If you feel up to it, go to DU and ask where all the war protests are being held. Come back here and tell us what happened.

With all due respect, this is kind of a silly question. Lefties re-elected a MURDERER to congress for years. Why should this be surprising?

Ded Kennedy (D-HELL) sat on a riverbank until the screams stopped, hiked back to get legal advice, then swam for his hotel, only to stonewall the whole thing. IN THE SIXTIES.

Cripes. The left is an evil empire, that’s why.

I get the Bush/Hitler/Cheney/Darth thing. Understand they will not let the current Deity look bad since he is now a Military Genius.

But Cynthia McKinney is out there doing the same crap, and she has now announced her desire to run against O'SpendsALot from the Green ticket.

They’re really upset that people who don’t think like them voted in 2010.

So they are planning to indefinitely occupy Freedom Plaza in DC in October. They want their Cairo-style revolution.

Then the mac and cheese will run out ....

McKinney does her thing because there are palestinians paying her. Her motivation is not anarchy, but being a small-time celebrity among some arabs.

You didn’t know?
SERIOUSLY?

Illegal wars and killing kids (33 on Monday, not ONE PEEP in US Media) is OK as long as it’s Done-While-Democrat.

You see, DEMOCRAT Humanitarian bombs kill kids in a kinder, gentler, way that makes the dead completely invisible to US TV Cameras.

It’s just another of the Messiah’s miracles, doncha know.

If the "anti-war" people are anything like the 1960s (their ideological parents) they are NOT anti-war. They are anti U.S. military.

The Bill Ayers and other "anti-war protestor" spoiled brats wanted to "bring it all down, man."

Today the aged punks and their ideological issue are arguably the Establishment.

It's the Americans turn to bring them all down, man.

Code Pinks hijacks AUVSI news conference.

Also, as mentioned, Cynthia McKinney and Code Pink have been doing their best to arm the Palestinians with their "freedom flotillas."

Also, other formerly "anit-war" organizations have joined the unions in Wisconsin (and Ohio, and to a lesser extent, Florida and other states) declaring war on "the rich" and "big business" and "union busting Republicans."

They all moved here to the People’s Republic of Montgomery County, Maryland, where they are voting for laws that interfere in every aspect of our lives (for our own good, of course). And commensurately higher taxes, of course.
