Can someone explain to me why this is news?
Wow, do you mean that in the United States of America, people actually believe in free speech? I'm stunned. Really.
Coming on the heels of the public outcry over Code Pink: Women for Peace and their cronies protesting outside Walter Reed hospital, this is clearly more Lib posturing. It's ok, see, because most people back our right to protest.
Yes, but having a right to protest, and having the good sense to know where you should protest, are two different things. You don't see these headlines, do you:
Many Back Right to Desecrate the Funeral of an American Hero
Many Back Right to Hold Signs saying "Enlist Here and Die for Haliburton" Outside a Military Hospital
No, I didn't think so.
But of course, according to Code Pink, it's a "vigil" to show support. Oddly enough, most "vigils" I know involve things like candles and ribbons - not nasty signs and makeshift coffins.
