The Berkeley City Council believed in its heart that by drafting a resolution expressing their hatred and disgust for military recruiters in their fair city, they would be hailed for making such a patriotic statement in support of our troops. Once again, they over-estimated the ignorance of the mouth-breathing Red State masses, who misinterpreted their noble gesture and took the whole thing as some sort of slight against those who wear the uniform. So for the safety of their citizens, Berkeley leaders were forced to issue a clarification this week that while they often enjoy crapping on those who serve, they only do so out of love.
As I've said time and time again, Progressives support the troops far more than anyone else does. While your typical right-wing chickenhawk can slap a yellow ribbon on his SUV and shout "SUPPORT OUR TROOPS!" with the greatest of ease, Progressives must struggle to utter the words without vomiting. That's why those words are so much more meaningful when we say them.
Most importantly, and I can't stress this enough, patriotic Americans such as those in Berkeley "support the troops" because they want to BRING THEM HOME...just preferably not to our neighborhoods, where they can induct our innocent tots into their Nazi Death Cult.
Perhaps when President Hillary and Vice President McCain shut down Gitmo and free all of Bush's abductees, our returning troops can build new lives there, where they will be free to slaughter their own women and children instead of Iraq's.
