The Whole World is Watching!*

The Democratic Party and their core base of Surrender Monkeys are at it again!
The Gateway Pundit has the story with maps! After decades of telling the world how they are for human rights and women's rights, they have been given an opportunity to put those hollow words into action and once again they side with the world's fascists by insisting that the brave men and women of the US armed forces surrender. The Whole World Is Watching and all they can do is abandon those who desire to throw off the yokes of oppression. Pathetic!
*The chant "the whole world is watching" was used to dramatic effect by the protesters at the Democratic National Convention of 1968 which was held right here in Chicago. While young people were protesting the convention and the Democratic Party's involvememt in the Vietnam War (actually they were more against the draft) the Chicago Police were sent in against the crowds of protesters because the city deemed that the protesters were illegally camped out in Grant Park. As the Chicago Police waded into the crowd the crowd chanted "the whole world is watching", and indeed they were, the protest was televised. Over the years I have talked to people on both sides of that clash (I was much too young for such activities) and people on the police side would often tell stories that have never make it into press accounts. Those stories could change the story line about those evenings that has been promulgated for almost 40 years. For instance a retired FBI agent and some of his then co-workers (at his son's wedding) told me how they arrested a guy coming in from Northern Illinois University with bombs containing nails, that is more al qaeda-like than "peaceful" and the abuse that many Chicago Police say that they faced before the fateful clashes certainly was not "peaceful".
Many Thanks to the wonderful Dr. Sanity and her Carnival of Insanities for inclusion again this week.
