  • Coming Soon: The Left's Glenn Close Moment

       March 21, 2005

    The usual suspects marched in Madison and throughout the world this weekend to protest the Iraq war. And, while it's fun to reflect on the irony of the "Not In My Name" folks in the aftermath of the Iraqi elections and the Arab spring, I'm really struck by this quote in a Capital Times article about the protests:

    Carol Hannah, an organizer with the group Peace North, said Americans aren't paying enough attention to the ongoing loss of life and millions of dollars being spent in Iraq.

    "This is a silent war, and people are ignoring it. They're not hearing what's going on, they're not listening to it," Hannah said, adding that soldiers overseas are aware of the lack of interest at home. "We wanted to send a real strong message that says you are not forgotten. We support you, and we want you home."

    Iraq is a "silent war"? Is she kidding? Her problem isn't that people are ignoring Iraq, it's that they're ignoring her.

    Driving around Madison, I've often seen cars with bumper stickers saying "If You're Not Outraged, You're Not Paying Attention". That seems to be the current message of the Left. There's no room for legitimate differences of opinion. If you don't fall into line with the conventional wisdom of the Left, you're "brain dead" or "evil" or you're a victim of biased alternative media outlets.

    What I'm afraid of it that sooner or later the Left is going to have a Glenn Close moment. They "will be not be ignored!". What's the political equivalent of boiling a bunny?

    The political equivalent of boiling the family bunny is to slowly and painfully starve an innocent woman to death while protesting that 3 square meals a day, prayer mats, and daily reading from the Koran is cruel and unusual punishment.

    That was a good one!
