Moron the Huffington Post

I'm beginning to get Arianna's vision. Collect all the fish in one comfined, circular area, so that we conservatives can get out our shotguns and start blasting.

Today's first fish is Emily Weinstein, who explains why she never stands for the National Anthem.

I first refused to pledge to the flag during the first Gulf War. In my seventh-grade heart I felt no allegience to the flag of the United States of America, nor to the republic for which it stands, because I did not believe it had ever provided liberty and justice for all. The last thirteen years have provided very little evidence to encourage me that the American flag is one I should stand for, as it increasingly becomes one the world needs to stand up to.

Some say that America has been hijacked by the current administration, that its actions defy the spirit and the law of what is truly American. That may be true, but when a bomb falls on a family in Iraq, the United States flag is on it. When a human being is publicly executed in a prison, the United States flag flies proudly outside it. And when a human being is secretly tortured in a prison, the United States flag flies outside it, too.

I won't stand for the American flag because I won't stand for what is done in its name. I won't stand for the current war in Iraq, I won't stand for the last war in Iraq. I won't stand for all the wars before that. I won't stand for its selectively faulty elecotral process and I won't stand for its unelected, renegade government. I won't stand for its medieval attitude towards sexuality and privacy, for its violent misinterpretation of Christianity, for its refusal to deal sanely with AIDS and all other global health crises, for its environmentally suicidal stance on climate change, for the hypocrisy of its practices, for the torture of its prisoners, for its executions and its drug wars and its oil wars. I won't stand for any of these things, and I won't stand for the United States of America, or its flag or its anthem, until they change.

Amazingly, the responses to her diatribe are virtually all positive.

Tom Bevan has more on this ridiculous post.

The second fish in the barrel is an old nemesis, Mr Jane Fonda himself, Tom Hayden. Tom wants us to know about the nobility of Tookie Williams:

Tookie Williams went to his death with all the dignity and serenity that is possible in an execution process that is meant to terrify and degrade. There are many possible reasons for his inner strength. To deny his tormenters any satisfaction could be one. But I think he believed that if he had to die, it was a meaningful martyrdom that sent a lasting message to the world.

Also catch Hayden's idiotic title: Tookie Williams, R.I.P. (Revolution in Progress). One would think that even a dolt like Hayden would know that talking about "The Revolution" at this point is cornball and trite, not hip and edgy like it was circa 1968. Hayden repeats several lies about Williams' conviction, like the "all-white" jury that supposedly convicted him. In fact, a black man was on the jury, whom Tookie claimed looked Filipino to him. Even if we accept Williams' characterization of the man, that's not "all-white". Hayden also claims that no physical evidence tied Tookie to the crime. Except, of course, that his shotgun was used to commit the crimes.

Cited for Breaking the Christmas in Cambodia story (at Kerry Haters):

Hugh Hewitt: KerryHaters was on this story a long time ago. How could the elite media not have asked these questions before now?

Ankle-Biting Pundits: Our friends Pat and Kitty at Kerry Haters deserve the blog equivalent of a Pulitzer for their coverage of Kerry's intricate web of lies regarding Vietnam.
