Shameless

Is there no point at which decent people on the left draw the line against the extremists in their ranks?

As noted below and in today’s Web Briefing, our friends at The Weekly Standard have posted two brief pieces that suggest not. Bill Kristol writes about the grotesque and offensive “die-in” being led by such far left groups as ANSWER and appropriating the names of American soldiers and Marines killed in action. It’s here.

Meanwhile, Hollywood is going to war – against American troops. Eight new movies are coming out over the next few months. Perhaps the most offensive of them, Brian DePalma’s Redacted, is: “Inspired by one of the most serious crimes committed by American soldiers in Iraq since the 2003 invasion, it is a harrowing indictment of the conflict and spares the audience no brutality to get its message across.”

Pete Hegseth of Vets for Freedom says most Hollywood denizens appear to be woefully ignorant regarding “what American soldiers are actually doing in Iraq. At every opportunity, they use their celebrity status to bash the very soldiers and Marines who are fighting for them. They reflexively side with radical Islamic terrorists rather than take an honest look at the situation in Iraq.” A piece is here.

And while I’m on the subject, Move America Forward has a caravan of pro-troop supporters kicking off a tour on Monday in Carson City, Nevada. Move America Forward welcomes persons of all political parties who support America’s troops and their missions in the war on terrorism.

Nevertheless, the Democratic party — on the national, state and local levels– is mobilizing against Move America Forward.
