Harry Reid Blocks DeMint's Defunding of Berkeley

First a fun little video. The Berkeley City Council in its own seditious words:

And Harry Reid rides to the rescue.

“The only reason to recess is to block something, and the thing that got blocked by Reid’s stall tactic was the Semper Fi Act,” said spokesman Wesley Denton, referring to the bill introduced by his boss, Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.).

“Democrats have chosen not to defend the Marine Corps, but to pander to anti-war protesters and Berkeley officials that are actively trying to impede military recruitment.”

It's almost as if the Democratic Party is institutionally anti-military and anti-America or something.

I know that can't be the case, though, as they all assure me they're gung ho to "get the real Al Qaeda." I guess they just won't be doing so with recruits from Berkeley.

Or most elite colleges, for that matter.

Just Up: On Hot Air headlines, this:

Berkeley erupted in violence Tuesday morning when the Communist, terrorist-supporting anti-war group crossed into Martin Luther King Park and assaulted pro-troop individuals. Riot police stood by, but did not stop the assaults.

Police agencies did not respond to calls for help.

...

MAF Exeutive Director Catherine Moy attempted to get help from the Berkeley police as the mayhem unfolded, but an officer hung up on Moy. Moy asked the California Highway Patrol to help in the emergency, but the CHP refused.

“I have never in my life experienced such inaction in the face of an emergency, “Moy said. “I will ask the Federal Government to investigate, as well as the State Attorney General. It is one thing to give free parking places to the City Council’s special interest anti-war groups, it is another to take sides and endanger the lives of others.”

I'm sorry, but the liberals' excuse that they're "just defending Berkeley's right to free speech" just went out the window. Physical assault countenanced by the city government and its police is not speech.


I was trading You Tube videos with someone earlier. I guess this song is appropriate:

Hate the band, hate the soft-rock metal, hate the sentiment. It's a gay song. But I do love it so.

Does that make me a bad person?
