Counter protest

Someone just left a comment on the August 10 posting on this blog. It is addressed to Cindy Sheehan and I reprint it for you here:

Please go home. You are an embarrassment to our nation as you are giving terrorists the impression of weakness and I am sure that they are more than happy with your escapades. My grandson is serving in Iraq for the 3rd time. I am proud of him and would never dishonor him with such a show of anti-American sentiment.

It was signed by Anonymous.

I would simply like to refer Anonymous to the first ammendment:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the FREEDOM OF SPEECH, or of the press; or the RIGHT OF PEOPLE PEACEABLY TO ASSEMBLE, AND TO PETITION THE GOVERNMENT FOR A REDRESS OF GRIEVANCES.

Far from being anti-American, Cindy Sheehan is commiting a profound and focused act of citizenship. May her tribe increase.
