Bush-style "Christians"

Last evening we saw another example of the Christian "values" that Bush inspires.

A knuckle-dragger in a pickup truck stopped near Camp Casey, disembarked from the cab and attached a pipe to the trucks' undercarriage with a chain (talk about premeditated) and cut a swath through the crosses like an extra from Dukes of Hazzard. A witness from Crawford Update said that "we heard the pipe being dragged over the gravemarkers and the pick-up's wheels crushing them." Crawford Update reports that "out of the 800 crosses, 500 were knocked down and 100 are irreparable."

Given the idiocy of the act, it's not a surprise that the driver was caught red-handed, as he had crosses sticking out of the undercarriage of his truck and was quickly arrested. A real genius, this one.

Not only did this "patriot" desecrate crosses, he also destroyed the American flags that decorated them - the same flag the right-wing trumps up fake campaign issues over with their candy-assed and dreary flag-burning hysteria.

These extreme right-wingers cannot stand freedom of speech, or our two-party system, or the rights of citizens to protest their own government. These self-described "patriots" are anything but.

Will Bush take time from his daily naps and playtime to condemn this act of violence, and the desecration of both the cross and the flag? Will he discourage his extreme followers from committing further acts of violence against a peaceful protest? Will he even give a shit?

I don't know if you use the same 'old saying' in the US as we do in the UK. But the one I'm thinking of certainly applies to this cross-crushing cretin.

"Where there's no sense - there's no feeling."

I've been editing again - you've now got a 'permanent' link on This Old Brit's blog. Thanks for doing the same for me, btw.

Keep up the good work!
