Brainless Gals in Topless Protest
Opinion Journal On Line ^ | 7 July 2005 | James Taranto

Posted on 07/07/2005 12:41:17 PM PDT by StrangerInParadise

Were we right or were we right when we said that the mindset of Karen Finley, the vulgarian "performance artist," had taken over the Angry Left? Check out this report from the San Francisco Chronicle:

A dozen anti-war activists from Mendocino County took their tops off at high noon in San Francisco's Union Square shopping district Thursday, using what they said was their best weapon to get the public's attention. . . .

Members of the Breasts Not Bombs contingent, which included seven women, three men and two young girls, said the war in Iraq is indecent, not their nakedness. . . .

Breasts Not Bombs said they are trying to make people uncomfortable to get their anti-war message across and to also desensitize people to nudity.

Of course, as we noted last month, such shock tactics "make people uncomfortable" only insofar as they fail to "desensitize" them.

I moved to NorCal in the Sierras back in 1994...California is wonderful...the people are great the climate is fantastic and the countryside is beautiful. The liberals'/whack-jobs/homos/younameit of SF basically Pee'ed in our pool.

One day years ago I was riding thru town when a Young woman whipped her shirt up as she was walking down the street exposing a near perfect set. When I got home later I told my wife what had happened and she asked; "Well what did she look like?"; to which I honestly replied; "Dear I don't even know if she had a face much less what it looked like."

There's a special place in hell for people who post such things. Well, so much for dinner.

I'm not sure if it's the same smelly old hippy, but Michael Medved had one on his show yesterday. I've built up a mental callous over the years listening to libs spew their idiocy, but this one was too much. I was screaming at my radio. She kept spouting the same tired crap like "War is not the answer". Medved destroyed her arguments, it was a real pleasure to listen to him.

I'm not sure if it's the same smelly old hippy, but Michael Medved had one on his show yesterday.

I googled her during the show and I'm pretty certain that's her.

You know, never before could I understand the logic of a male homosexual, prefering men over women, but this pig makes an argument for it.

The irony of it is just sweet. These women would be stoned to death if they tried this crap in the very country they are siding with. They bask under the umbrella of our Nation, and then they question the method in which is provided.
