The Paula Marshall of the Blogosphere

Well, I certianly hope that - somehow - a way will be found for the show to go on here.  From the very first issue (I've still got my copy of the first issue with the Harper-Stronach-Clement cover), the Western Standard provided a voice for those who have otherwise been written out of public debate in this country. 

But, in the meantime, I suppose that the show's going to go on here - so now there's this:

Captain Ed reports on a simply bizarre incident that occured in Pennsylvania the other day.

But for nearly three dozen youngsters from the U-Gro child care center, located just off the president's motorcade route on Stony Battery Road, it was all about waving hand-drawn flags, singing songs and holding banners welcoming to Lancaster one of the most powerful men in the world.

"What an opportunity this is for our children," center director Liz Burkhard said while herding children ages 4 to 6 into a compact, orderly row behind the yellow police tape lining Stony Battery at Church Street.

One group of protesters quickly descended on the happy cluster, however, chanting and singing their own songs to drown out the children's voices.

"Stop brainwashing children to support a president who doesn't deserve our support," one man yelled through a bullhorn. Others told the kids to "educate yourselves" and said "your parents are killing you" by supporting Bush and the war.

These "people" are crazy.  There's no nicer way of saying it.  How utterly deranged and depraved do you have to be to descend upon children whose offense was to greet the President of the United States with hand-made flags and to start SCREAMING AT THEM WITH BULLHORNS?  This is so utterly beyond anyone's definition of acceptable political discourse that I'm really just staggered.

I'd also note that he article's headline is, "Bush visit draws vocal mix of supporters, protesters" - can you imagine how the media would have covered the story if it was a group of conservative protestors so foully abusing children who turned out to greet a liberal politician?

No surprise here. Leftoids have no decency -although they ALWAYS screech how everything they do is for "the children". This puts the lie to that motive of theirs.

Ron Paul supporters, perhaps?

The political double standard between what is okay to do is stunning.

What will it take to level this field?

Political correctness seem to affect only the right ... why is that the left can behave so barbarically, but the right cannot even loosen it's tie.

What is that?

Uh, it will be many years before these 4-6 year old kids even know who President Bush is/was, and more before they can understand what he did during his presidency.

If the kids remember anything at all about this incident, it may well be "weird hippies yelled at us." And that can only be a good thing in the long run -- might turn them off leftists for life.

Just returned from a bookstore where I browsed through Culture Warrior by Bill O'Reilly.

He sets out the issues plainly in the secular humanist fight against traditional values quite well.

These leftist miscreants are mentally ill.

CTV does it again! Their web page has a story about the murder of an RCMP officer - with comments. As of 15 minutes ago, the comments have all been removed!!

Could it be because several of them called for the death penalty to be brought back - and some Leftoid complained???
