"Anti-War" Libs In Marin County, Elsewhere, Silent As Their Chickenhawk President Prepares Unilateral War On Syria

Jonn Lilyea at This Ain't Hell wrote the other day about the absence of the greying relics from the 1960s out in the streets protesting Richard Milhous Obama's rush to an illegal, unilateral war (without Congressional or UN approval) on Syria.
Our buddy, Rick Moran and Buzzfeed have noticed the absence of throngs of ill-clad hippies in the streets around the White House in regards to the impending Syria “punishment”. I remember that the communists were protesting the war in Afghanistan before the dust had cleared at the twin towers and the Pentagon. But now, the silence is deafening. Some of the odoriferous hippies blame the economy;
“I don’t think me or Medea or anyone else should be defensive about that,” Martin said. “We don’t push a button and get hundreds of thousands of people in the streets.” 
Martin blamed the anemic response among peace groups to Syria on the economy, noting that all nonprofits are struggling — not just protest groups.
Plus, Martin said, the energy on the left has been focused on drones and civil liberties, which “doesn’t rise to the level of an obviously unjust war where hundreds of thousands of people are being killed because of a belligerent president.”
But others arrived at the same conclusion many of us reached more than a decade ago – the anti-war left is partisan;
“The Democrats are missing in action because of course the president is a Democrat,” said David Swanson, a longtime antiwar activist and author of War Is a Lie and When the World Outlawed War, who works with Roots Action, a progressive nonprofit. “That’s the biggest factor, I think. What’s tamping down the activism is partisanship.” 
“This started in 2007 when it was time to focus on electing a Democratic president and the Democrats forgot about the wars,” Swanson said. “We’ve been struggling ever since to get back to where we were in 2006.”
Our buddy, John Bruhns arrived at that conclusion back in 2008 when he left VoteVets and the United for Peace and Justice (UFPJ) when he discovered for himself that the movement was just cover for the Democrats.
They don't have the money, that's their excuse?  Wow!  Do you expect me to believe that George Soro$ wallet is empty and he can no longer fund these freakshows like the skanks at Code Stink?

Obama's constituency on parade in San Rafael, CA

I looked the last few days at the online edition of the Marin Independent Journal, the local liberal rag in my old stomping grounds of Moron County, CA. It appears the drug-addled socialist hippie crowd from the Marin Peace & Justice Coalition (aka The Marin Appeasement & InJustice Coalition) who organized all the supposed "anti-war" rallies from 2001 to 2008 are silent.  I inquired via Twitter to the IJ News Staff:

Contrast that to a week after September 11, 2001. While smoke was still rising from the remains of the World Trade Center, the hippies of Moron County, eager to recreate their salad days of the 1960's, were out in force on the corner of Fifth and Irwin Streets in San Rafael, CA. "No War" "No Bombing" "No Blood For Oil" "No Racism" all the other leftist idiocy, not caring of the fact that thousands of their fellow citizens were murdered indiscriminately on live TV by Islamofascists.  Their attitude was belligerent when you confronted them on their idiocy and what they really represented.  One hippie on that September day stuck his hand through the window of my car with a flyer for that notorious, communist radio station in Berkeley, KPFA.

"Communist" I responded.

"F**k you" the hippie answered. (Why? Tired of sheep?)

And so it went through the eight years George W. Bush was President. Marin and Bay Area liberals loudly protested "illegal" "unilateral" wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.  Those of us who supported our military were labeled "chickenhawks" regardless of the fact these military hating liberals never served in the first place, and they always excused that fact for themselves.

But today, their Leftist President Obama is threatening to use military for war on Syria where there is scant evidence the Assad Regime used chemical weapons on their people. The British Parliament gave a thumbs down to intervention in Syria, so Obama is threatening to act "unilaterally" in a "go it alone" action without UN or Congressional approval. Everything Obama, Joe Bite Me, and the Democrap Party told Bush he must do they are throwing out the window.

Obama's reasoning for his rush to war is so he can toughen up his image.  Really?  Doesn't that make Obama the ultimate Chickenhawk President?  He never served, has attacked our military as murderers bombing civilians, and yet he's using them to make him look like something he's not...a tough guy.

If that's not hypocrisy, I don't know what is.

You know, it's too bad we in the right blogosphere don't get weekly paycheck from the Koch Brothers (as the left accuses us of), because if I was a well funded right blogger, I'd be willing to start a reward pool to anyone who can find and send a photo of at least one Leftist hippie in America protesting Obama's illegal and unilateral war in public.

This San Franciscan has been amused at the deafening silence from the left over the last week. In a city that starts a protest for anything and everything, there's been not one peep about Obama's new war.

This weekend is especially quiet given 1) its a holiday weekend and 2) its Burning Man this weekend where every leftist anarchist and aged hippy heads out of town to get high in the desert.

FYI, if anyone ever wondered what SF would be like without all the crazies, deviants and leftist nuts, they can see this weekend, my favorite weekend of the year!
