The Anti-War Left vs Obama

What if they gave a war protest and nobody cared?

As per the Daily Caller, nobody cares:

Code Pink spokeswoman Joan Stallard agreed that there is an obvious disconnect between the “thousands of people in the street in the run-up to Iraq” and the empty streets now.

When asked how she would feel if Obama orders bombings in Syria, Stallard didn’t mince words.

“I’ll be so disgusted,” she said. “How are we going to cut down the killing in Syria by killing people in Syria? People are going to die. They are not likely going to be members of Assad’s administration.”

TheDC reached out to representatives of CNN and MSNBC to find out if those organizations would be covering Answer’s protests. They have not responded, though a CNN spokeswoman promised to look into the situation.

CNN won’t be looking into it.  It doesn’t fit the narrative.  And it’s not something they want to show.

Controlled and copied, they’ve planted the seed that sprouts into your picture of the world.

Nobody cares.  The media won’t cover it, because the broader media has their own agenda, and it’s as simple as Republicans=bad, Democrats=good.  So there will be no coverage by the leftist media of the dissent on the left.

Dennis Kucinich, who’s a lefty, but who’s a principled lefty (he may believe in many leftist policies that are ultimately “evil, failed, and wrong” as Evan Sayet would put it, but he’s consistent) put out 10 unproven claims on Syria that he wants answers to, none of which anyone on the power-hungry Democrat left cares about:

In the lead-up to the Iraq War, I researched, wrote and circulated a document to members of Congress which explored unanswered questions and refuted President Bush’s claim for a cause for war. The document detailed how there was no proof Iraq was connected to 9/11 or tied to al Qaeda’s role in 9/11, that Iraq neither had WMDs nor was it a threat to the U.S., lacking intention and capability to attack. Unfortunately, not enough members of Congress performed due diligence before they approved the war.

Here are some key questions which President Obama has yet to answer in the call for congressional approval for war against Syria. This article is a call for independent thinking and congressional oversight, which rises above partisan considerations.

Kucinich may be wrong on some of them and totally right on others, but no one even cares to address him.  He was useful against Bush, now the Democrat party and the larger left simply ignore him and give some lip service to war protesters about how they care.  And it works, because the narrative is that Democrats are caring, and there can be no questioning it.

So the Democrats can bomb people with impunity and start wars and still be the caring, nice guys, just like they can personally kill women and still be champions of women’s rights.

Ted Kennedy's car that he drowned Mary Jo Kopechne in... as he left her and went back to a party... and called his lawyer to figure out how best to proceed... and went to bed until the next day.
