Johnny, over at "The Right Is Where It Sat," is absolutely livid over ... well, let's let Johnny explain it between flecks of spittle and drool slowly coursing down his chin:
... Tracey Glynn is a member of the Fredericton Peace Coalition and says that wearing a "Support Our Troops" yellow ribbon trumpets positive support for the war.
"I think by putting the yellow ribbon on or wearing the red shirt, you're being a cheerleader for the war," Glynn said...
Now how can anyone who says things like this can say that they support the troops ? Its just crazy and idiotic !!! They have no idea what supporting the troops really mean !!!
Damn straight! I mean, we've had this discussion before and where the hell do you get the nerve to suggest that just wearing a yellow ribbon necessarily means you support the mission in Afghanistan? Who the fuck is so dishonest and deluded as to draw that logical conclusion? Oh, wait ...
Although billed as a non-partisan rally, Mr. Harper used the occasion to slip in a not-so-subtle jab at NDP Leader Jack Layton, who has called for the withdrawal Canadian troops from the combat portion of the mission.
"Friends, I believe you cannot say you are for our military and then not stand behind them in the great things they do."
Tune in tomorrow when Johnny rips Stephen Harper a new asshole for being "crazy and idiotic." Or maybe not. It all depends on whether stupidity wins out over hypocrisy. Or vice versa.
