Bush youth

Supporting the troops by mocking the mothers of the dead, eh? For all the conservatives and Republicans trolling this blog, I'd love to hear a genuine condemnation of this sick and disrespectful image. I doubt the intellectual honesty exists, but I hope I'm wrong.

The photo [left] graced the sign of a 12-year-old Bush supporter. It depicts hunter Bush having slaughtered Cindy Sheehan, whose son was killed in Iraq.

Can it be read as anything other than conveying the message that vocal disagreement with the president warrants execution? I'd also love to hear from soldiers on this attack on a fallen soldier's mother.

T writes: "It’s a minor hit with the Freepi. And, not surprisingly, the creator of the image is one of them. You can get a better look at the image itself here, and the 'Butcher’s Commentary' too."

The Freepers, if you're unfamiliar with them, are a group of right wingers who wave the flag despite having only the vaguest notion of what it stands for. The founding fathers would've doubled over in laughter at them; or better yet, they'd have written quips, the likes of which would elicit anger, blank stares and charges of treason. (Republic of T)
