Stop The Wars, I Wanna Get Off: Where Are the Anti-War Protesters?
Bigpeace.com ^ | 06/13/2011 | Adam Sparks

Posted on 06/13/2011 3:23:58 PM PDT by sfwarrior

“The president does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.” Then Sen. Obama 2007 talking about a possible war against Iran

Obama, the peace president, has now begun his fourth war in Yemen. No imminent threat here. His third war in Libya is not going great and there’s no imminent threat there either. In a story with little national coverage, the media has just learned that Obama has started a 4th war in Yemen. It’s a story for perhaps the 15th page, it’s ho-hum. Obama, another war? No big deal- he’s not a republican, nothing to see here. Obama is now heavily involved in the civil war in Yemen. Which side is he on with one? Who cares, it’s a war. Let’s go fight.

They are the people they were waiting for, and no one demonstrates against himself.

Our weekly Tuesday lunch protesters have been very consistent. They’re still out in front of the federal building, they just had to alter their “No Iraq War” signs.

>>What now we have a lefty in the White House they like wars? <<

Just like feminists fled to the hills and hid when the cigar president demonstrated the most blatant example of sexual harassment in recorded history.

liberals don’t have principles — they have agendae.

Give him another Peace Prize -- the first was good for at least three wars.

We haven’t had a President since Roosevelt with the leadership to get Congress to formally declare war.

Well, you see these are “just” wars started by a liberal
when the war on our southern border against the invading
hispanolamic hords gets going be assured they will be
against that one.

A conservative opposes a war because he’s afraid we may lose. A far lefty opposes a war when he’s afraid we may win.

The American people have noted this. They watched how the left attacked W endlessly over the WOT in order to hand us Zero.

They responded last November, and they won’t be swayed by the punkass media again. Next November they will turn the electoral map blood red, coast to coast.

On a few website bulletin boards, I have used the term PEACE NAZI to describe the peace movement in general, and one person asked me for an explanation as to what the term means and why I say it. Here is my answer:

It is intentionally derogatory, and I use it because I believe it has to be said.

It has to do with the foundation of the PEACE movement in the US and abroad and their Communist foundation, and how the majority of the signs held and slogans chanted are not about peace or genuine concern for the people of two warring countries, it is about the anti-American attitudes and the violence-inducing signs and slogans calling for violence against American Troops and President Bush.

Carrying signs calling on troops to kill their officers, to bomb Texas, for Bush to choke on a pretzel and die, for troops to shoot their officers, signs that call for communist revolution, starting fights with people who disagree with you while carrying a peace sign, trying to steal my money in Boston while carrying a peace sign and then telling me because you were shamed into giving back the money that means you are ok after all...

Things like that.

I will NOT stop using it. It is intended to make the peace protestor think.

After all the horrors we found in Iraq, you should all be thankful we went in and invaded to remove that madman. Yet, the mantra has changed, it is now against occupation and most recently a call for early withdrawl without any victory!

Repeatedly, information comes out of Iraq proving the terrorist connections of Saddam Hussein and Al-Qaeda.

Still, not one PEACE NAZI has apologized and admitted we were right. All they did is complain that a people that were under slavery for 30 years were looting after Saddam was overthrown, and who do they blame? Why the US!! We did nothing to stop it! Maybe because we stayed out of the crowd because the PEACE NAZIS would have complained we didn’t let them vent their anger??

(As a side note, people who are now called PEACE NAZIS didn’t call on the LAPD or Federal Troops to stop the LA riots after the Rodney King riots, did they? They told us all to step back and let them vent their anger, yet all of a sudden, we were supposed to go in and use force to stop rioters in Iraq?)

And to top it off, we are flushing out the terrorists in places like Fallujah, the places where the Murderous Mullahs all take refuge, and the PEACE NAZIS have not ONCE held a rally to decry the beheadings of Americans or Iraqi CARE workers! Not one PEACE NAZI rally held to call for justice for the Killers of Daniel Pearl or any foreigner killed in Iraq!

We never intended to occupy a country like SYRIA had the last 20 years, and where were the PEACE NAZIS and their signs calling on SYRIA to leave Lebanon? They are non existent. The Syrians killed tens of thousands, chasing little children into bedrooms and shooting them point blank.

Did you know there was a Christian Community in Beirut before 1985? Now, they are almost either all killed or fled from the Syrian backed Junta, and not a peep from the PEACE NAZIS, only against American forces sent to Beirut to keep peace. Why aren’t the PEACE NAZIS arguing for the return of the Christian Community back to Beirut where they lived for 2 Millennium?

Where were the PEACE NAZIS when Israel was blockaded in 1967?
Where were the PEACE NAZIS when Israel was attacked on her Holy Day of Yom Kippur in 1973?
Where were the PEACE NAZIS when the PLO was shelling Katyusha rockets into Israel in 1982?

Oh, Yeah, I remember, they were telling Israel to stop defending themselves!

In fact, there is not a single country that we ever went to war with that we stayed as the governing power for more than 10 years! We always returned it to the people.

And that brings up another point: PEACE NAZIS are NOT against war, they are against wars that the US is engaged in to overthrow pro-Communist or PRO-radical Islamic regimes or PRO-Maoist/PRO-Stalinist regimes.

My point here, is simple: These COMMIES are not for peace. If they were, they would have been screaming about Clinton killing innocents to keep his sexual scandals off the tv;

they would have been screaming for the Palestinian Liberation Organization to stop killing Jews;

they would have been screaming for Hamas and Islamic Jihad to stop killing Jews;

they would have been screaming for the Hutus and Tutsis to make peace;

they would have been screaming for that madman Saddam to stop killing Kurds or Iranians;

they would have been screaming for the Turks to stop killing Kurds or Greeks;

they would have been screaming for the Chinese to stop killing Vietnamese in 1982;

they would have been screaming for the Angolan Army to stop killing with the help of the Cuban Army in the 1980’s;

they would have been screaming for the Muslims to stop killing and beheading school age children and other Christians in Indonesia, Malaysia, and China and North Korea;

They would have been screaming for the Sudanese to stop the torture and slave trade which continues today in Darfur;

They would have been screaming when the Syrians invaded Lebanon in 1985 and have continued an occupation of Lebanon since the 1980’s;

They would have been screaming when Pol Pot started a genocide in 1975;

They would be screaming now about Mugabe killing all the white farmers in Africa in Zimbabwe;

They would have been screaming at the murders caused by the African National Congress and their necklacing of prisoners and at Winnie Mandela who was convicted of murder, yet the communists are silent;

They would have been screaming about Tiananmen Square, but they are silent;

They would have been screaming about the repression in Cuba and why so many people have chosen to flee in rickety little boats, but instead they lionize that dictator, Castro;

They would have been screaming about the invasion of South Vietnam in 1975 where the north started a genocide campaign in direct violation of the Paris Peace Accords of 1973 and caused over 2 million Vietnamese to flee in little boats that got picked up by ships like the one I was on in 1981;

They would be screaming at the Palestinians for their suicide bombings that intentionally target innocent school age children;

They would be screaming at the Palestinians for their suicide bombings that intentionally target innocent people on buses, or pizza parlors, or weddings, or wheel-chair bound invalids on cruise ships, or Olympic hotels;

They would have been screaming at the rioters in France, except Peace-Nazis do not scream when Muslims kill people or destroy things.

Except, the only time they scream is when the US is at war against a tyrant who is support by Russia or France.

In much of the world, the antics and policies of these PEACE NAZIS would result in jail – or worse. Cuba, China and many socialist countries routinely eliminate protests – and protesters – against the government and its leaders. It seems ironic that the ultimate goal of these protesters is to transform America into the kind of government that tolerates no dissent.

And since NAZI is one of the most vile insults you can give someone in our last two generations, I call them PEACE NAZIS, for they are not for peace, they are for war, they are for the overthrow of my country and into communism and anarchy, and they are a violent bunch who base their foundation on lies and the telling of lies and the repeating of lies.

We all want these wars to end, no one more than the men fighting them. But you can’t wave a magic wand and end a war. If we just up and leave get ready for some pretty nasty counter-attacks. The best way to end a war is by winning it.

BTW, I’ve gotten into it with some lefties about Libya and they claim it’s not a real war. Believe me, if they’re trying to kill us back it’s a war. It took us 3 months to “rush” into Iraq after Congress approved but they think Libya was prudent with no approval, no threat, and no notification. While I don’t support defunding I think some steps should be taken against the administration.

This is not unlike the “homeless problem” that ceased to exist as an issue right after GWH Bush left office. The media suddenly went silent after years of critical coverage on the front pages during the Bush years. Just another example of liberal hypocracy.

The muslims groups got their promise from Obama for their caliphate. Egypt? 100% endorsed by Obama. Libya? No voices as its for the Caliphate. Yemen? ha! same crap Obama started reshaping the mid east with his Cairo speech. All these wars and not a voice challenging them...... it is more than carefully orchestrated...

and guess what? America gets to pay for the upcoming genocide in Israel while being Obama kissed into believing that this “arab spring” is about “democracy”. Muslims can only parrot the word, democracy is antithetical to Islam....

"We haven’t had a President since Roosevelt with the leadership to get Congress to formally declare war."

Kind of true. Since Rosie, we've not had a wartime president with the leadership to get Congress to formally declare war. I'm pretty sure Ike and President Reagan would've gotten declarations had we actually been at war during their administrations (Grenada wasn't exactly a war).

Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!

A conservative opposes a war because he’s afraid we may lose.

I oppose a war because first off it expands government, and it never shrinks down to its pre-war size after hostilities.

And secondly it leads to radical societal changes at home even if you win.

Oppose or support, the fact of the matter is the US wouldn't be one-fifth of the way down the left-wing road it is today domestically without her entrance into WWI, WWII, Korea (to a lesser extent) and Vietnam.

Technically, Iraq attacked Iran, thinking they’d be an easy target due to the disruption of the Revolution.

Didn’t work out that way.

Iraq has been so much in the news in recent years I forgot about the Iranian Revolution and assumed everything was the other way around.

Next I'll be saying Lyndon Johnson was never elected President. Times like this I wish there was an "edit" button.

The amazing part is how Saddam started the war and then lost it, at immense cost to his country, but somehow managed to remain in power.

Of course, he’s a piker compared to Santa Ana. He became President of Mexico 11 times over 22 years, and among other feats, managed to lose both the Texas Revolution and the US/Mexican War, totaling well over half the country.

And he still managed to get back into power!

yup... democracy to them is the ole one vote for one man.... and it stops there. They have zero understanding of the infrastructure, culture, history, philosophy and meaning of the word. The years of political and religious thought that went into the “free industrialized west’s” successes.

They should sit down and look at themselves... if what they are doing doesn’t work, obviously they need to do something else.

Andrew Klavan makes some very accurate observations and positive suggestions in
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uIEeiDjdUuU

He points right at Egypt actually the whole mid east... with their millions unemployed, new graduates with nothing to do....if they go right into Sharia... they will continue to be a backwards, hateful people.

Democracy goes well beyond one vote for one man!

Excellent and accurate vid... am in the process of watching it now. Have dial up service so it is painstakingly slow.
They are pretty much on the money. I believe that Obama has just consolidated the first phase of the Caliphate.

What Obama is doing is a insult to America, its heritage and its culture. The bastard should be brought in on treason and sedition as he is staging an islamic assault on Israel and America, not necessarily in that order. He is endangering every man woman and child through his alignment. He is expediting a Islamic buildup and confrontation with the west.

The illegal alien is not of our culture and needs to be evicted and imprisoned.
