Now this is downright terrifying.

The American Legion, which has 2.7 million members, has declared war on antiwar protestors, and the media could be next. Speaking at its national convention in Honolulu, the group's national commander called for an end to all “public protests” and “media events” against the war.

"The American Legion will stand against anyone and any group that would demoralize our troops, or worse, endanger their lives by encouraging terrorists to continue their cowardly attacks against freedom-loving peoples," Thomas Cadmus, national commander, told delegates at the group's national convention in Honolulu.

The delegates voted to use whatever means necessary to "ensure the united backing of the American people to support our troops and the global war on terrorism."

Let's read that last sentence again. "United backing"? In other words, no dissent permitted? Hey, we used to say proudly about the U.S.A. that if the president of the United States got up before the Lincoln Memorial on July Fourth to read the Declaration of Independence, there would be some mother-f'er to protest. We were boasting about our freedoms, which were not mere words but real-live practices. And now the American Legion suggests that if we have a problem with the president's policy we confine our expressions of it to WRITING TO OUR CONGRESSMAN?????? Yeah, un huh.

OK, Legion, you go ahead and declare war on your fellow Americans and just see what it gets you. You'll galvanize the antiwar movement in a way that Cindy Sheehan never dreamed of. And try finding enough bodies to fight your filthy, misconceived war once we expose you wingers for the anti-American dopes you're proving yourselves to be. What a legacy Dubya is leaving behind -- civil war in Iraq and Afghanistan, civil war in our own country. IMPEACH BUSH NOW.
