I was surfing the web this afternoon, doing my part to fill Hillary's war chest and bring back our beloved hurricanes, when I stumbled across a shocking video that made me so angry I almost shut off my computer and put my clothes back on in protest.
It seems that a Reno TV news crew recently* discovered a Mexican flag being flown above Old Glory outside a local drinking establishment.
Granted, it may have been an innocent mistake. The bar's Hispanic owner is new to this country and perhaps had no idea his display would offend so many people and spark such national outrage. I am sure that if someone had simply taken the time to explain to him that the U.S. flag is not only a symbol of racism and genocide, but a blatant show of support for Bush's Illegal and Immoral War in Iraq, he would have gladly taken it down. But before anyone had a chance, a Vietnam-era veteran and true patriot, Jim Broussard, marched past the cameras and, in a courageous show of civil disobedience, cut down the blood-spangled banner and dared anyone to try and take it back.
Fatty Pillpopper Limbaugh will probably call Broussard a "phony soldier" for daring to show such patriotic dissent, but personally I haven't been this proud of someone who wore the uniform since John Kerry wiped his ass with the flag back in '71. Broussard obviously isn't one of those jingoist morons who joined the military because he couldn't get into college and now obediently waves the flag around because he's been brainwashed to love America. No, he's one of US, and I'm glad to see that the ACLU is jumping to his defense. This is a man who, despite his military background, has nothing but disdain for the emblem of U.S. imperialism many died pointlessly for, and respect for those brave undocumented workers who pick our fruit and clean our toilets everyday for our freedoms. Goddess bless him.
*alright, so I've been a little out of the loop, okay?
