Bummer. Public Enemy was supposed to give a free concert to the Recreate '68 moonbats next week...except that Public Enemy had no idea they were invited: The anarchists are scrambling to regroup. It's going to be a fun week.
I grew up in Absecon, NJ, in the shadow of the Atlantic City casinos. Now, there's another structure that casts a shadow over the area: A statute of Lenin. Absecon resident Al Garrett is disgusted. The Atlantic City Press reports on his protest against the commie statue and the mass brutality and evil it represents... Read More
The latest on the convention anarchy planning front, via Slapstick Politics: More here from the promoters who support "creative, militant direct actions" to "grind the war to a halt."

If you've been a blog reader long enough, you'll remember this name: Micah Wright. He's the fake Army Ranger exposed as fraud four years ago by alert bloggers and milbloggers. Well, he's baaaack. D.S. Hube e-mails that Wright's attempting a writing comeback: Writes Hube: "Wright's 'creative' homepage is here. It's aptly titled 'Evil Scum.'"
When last we visited the seditious hotbed of Olympia, Washington, anti-military zealots had caused $4,000 in damages to police cars and incurred more than $100,000 in costs after obstructing military shipments at the city port.

The right side of the blogosphere is all over the clueless media coverage of a new "study" and database compiled by "two nonprofit journalism organizations" that purports to show that BUSH LIED to entice American into Iraq.

For those of you who are Iowa-ed and New Hampshire-d out, go take a look at the Society of Illustrators' new anti-war art exhibit.

Jihadi jumpsuit-wearing protesters disrupted a speech by former AG Al Gonzales at the University of Florida. They came uninvited to his Harvard reunion earlier this year. At least the clowns--the ones wearing make-up--didn't show up: It's too bad there was nobody protesting Gonzales's reckless open-borders legacy. That would have been completely warranted.
Update: Here's a real hero. *** I get sick every time I see some aging hippie, yuppie and baby, open-borders zealot, or college punk sporting a Che shirt--or some clueless corporate retailer making a buck off of Che chic. The Young America's Foundation is tired of it, too. They've put out a poster for Freedom... Read More

Radio talk show host Lars Larson wants to know if you think it's appropriate to display this anti-American "art" at the tax-funded Portland Airport: Christian-bashing? Check. Anti-gun message? Check.

If you read the news accounts, the shooting of an airman from McGuire Air Force Base has no rhyme or reason: There's more to the story. LGF heard from a reader whose son is the best friend of the victim: My son’s best friend, Jon, who’s in the Air Force stationed in New Jersey at... Read More
Remember the anti-war thugs who shouted down and taunted our troops as they headed off to war in Tacoma? Now, the city of Tacoma is billing the military to pay for the law enforcement costs of policing the peace mob: Unreal.

Also keep a... Read More
Via Ynetnews Spanish PM Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero is only the latest in a long line of moonbat dupes who've literally wrapped themselves in jihadi fashion.

President Bush and Japanese PM Koizumi visited Graceland today. Allah has video of Koizumi singing "Love Me Tender." He's got a better voice than Connie Chung, at least. Reader Shana F. is in Memphis and snapped photos of an anti-Bush crowd that gathered to protest. Elvis was there: No clowns, though.
Fashion designer Marc Jacobs has a tony boutique in San Francisco. The SF Chronicle's Leah Garchick noticed something big in the store's window--a literal sign of Bush Derangement Syndrome: Internet photojournalist/documentarian Zombie e-mails notice of an exclusive photo essay at Zombietime.com featuring the store display: *** While we're on the subject of left-wing chic,

Yaaawn. My friend Bryan Preston and I went to the moonbat fizzle in Washington, D.C. earlier today. Journalists and camera crews made up one-fifth of the crowd of about 100.
