Birds of a feather

Klan Gets Permit for Gettysburg Protest

GETTYSBURG, Pa. -- The National Park Service has granted the Ku Klux Klan's request to hold a rally and protest the Iraq war at the Civil War battlefield where Abraham Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address.
One set of authoritarian symps to coincide with another:

US Anti-War Protesters to Launch Fast
The list of anticipated fasters includes anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan, mother of an American serviceman killed in Iraq, and Michael Berg, the father of an American citizen who was captured by insurgents in Iraq and later beheaded.

Several members of Congress are expected to take part, as well as a British and a Canadian lawmaker. Actors Danny Glover, Sean Penn and Susan Sarandon, as well as country musician Willie Nelson, are among a long list of celebrities.

"For some of us, it is an open-ended fast, meaning we are not sure how long we will go, but we are determined to go as long as our bodies allow us to," said Medea Benjamin, who helped organize the event, called "Troops Home Fast."
They have been reduced to resorted fakery, misrepresentation, and personal abuse to now demanding actions that will lead to certain failure to prove their point... “Troops home fast” indeed – pull them out before any success for the US initiative in the region becomes apparent to the public outside of Iraq and the rest of the Near East. When will they finally get that trying to talk it down can’t make a thing true.

The fuse is lit!
