Ok, I just had to link to this Editorial from the Lexington Herald-Leader. The headline? "Hippies still trying to ruin the country." Yes, I'm serious. Read it, and savor the passages like [Hippies believe that]"...America's armed forces are neo-Nazi stormtroopers who delight in burning babies to further the aims of imperialistic corporations." Really.
The screed was written by a woman named Jenean McBrearty.
I believe this is her...
Here's another bit of her thinking: "For aging hippies, it's easier to keep blaming old enemies than to confront new ones, especially the young and ruthless. Hating a military-industrial complex is safer and less tiring. It's less complicated -- and less dangerous... Their BAWL (Buddha-Allah-Wicca-Lenin) is better than some old Judeo-Christian God.
In their heart of hearts, lefty loonies do want America to lose in Iraq and every military theater. They want outside enemies to accomplish quickly the demolition of American capitalism, using the violence the lefty loonies are too old, too scared and too well-invested to use."
