Once again I wonder

Is it just me or do you see a pattern too? When Bush started his misbegotten war of choice, people against the war held peaceful protests, standing on street corners holding signs and marching… with approved permits, of course. Here in Alaska, that was met by people who supported the war pouring water over the protesters in the middle of winter, a violent act.

So the liberals are peaceful, the conservatives are violent.

Then we have the anti abortion movement. They claim to be pro life and prove it by shooting people and blowing up clinics with people in them. Again, conservatives use violence.

And now we have health care reform, an idea that for some reason has people ready to draw blood. While vigorous debate is a hallmark of a healthy democracy, once again the conservatives use violence… throwing bricks through the windows of members of the House of Representatives who voted for the bill and threatening violence to others. This is a health care bill, for Christ’s sake. It’s about lower premiums and extended coverage. While you may not agree with it, it’s hardly taking America on the first step to hell. And certainly not something to warrant violence. Yet once again, the conservatives act violently.

Do they not even get the message of the man most of them purport to follow. He was a man of PEACE who ordered his followers to turn the other cheek.

If this is the way conservatives protest what they don’t like, than I am proud to NOT be one of them. Because I am a proud American and they don’t have a clue what that means. They should all move to Texas where Thomas Jefferson, who for the love of Pete wrote the Constitution, has been erased from history books for not being conservative enough. Texas isn’t American enough to deserve to be part of our country and neither do conservatives who use violence to get their way.

Get the hell out of my country!
