Apache Pilots Rescue Wounded Soldier - Part II (the Video)
Blackfive officially a cesspool

Independence Day warm up

My local moonbats decided they hadn't beclowned themselves enough on Memorial Day when I punked them propah. So they broke out the Nazi imagery with the poster here.  For some reason that bit comparing our troops to Nazi occupiers seems to have chafed Kev's cones. It is particularly galling for a nihilist to be called a National Socialist Worker so we will be attending their July 4th Impeach for Peace rally to provide some balance. Anyone in the MadCity is welcome to join in. Their signs say 12 noon State St. side of the Capitol, but just follow the wafting Patchouli and pot smoke and you'll find 'em.

Couple of hits from NRO's The Corner

Howard Zinn’s blog today at the lib mag’s website urges Americans to “Put Away the Flag,” that notorious symbol of racism and hate:

    On this July 4, we would do well to renounce nationalism and all its symbols: its flags, its pledges of allegiance, its anthems, its insistence in song that God must single out America to be blessed.Is not nationalism — that devotion to a flag, an anthem, a boundary so fierce it engenders mass murder — one of the great evils of our time, along with racism, along with religious hatred?

Howard Zinn is a professional wanking device, and it troubles me not one lick to question his patriotism. He has none to America. The allegiance he would swear is to a country I would fight to the death against. In Howie's world the Islamists would drop their 800+ years of religious beefs and their avowed goal of restoring the Caliphate just because we treated them nicer, chatted them up a bit. How remarkably innocent you have to be to maintain that America stands for racism, mass murder and religious hatred. Dam U Dum Howie. About the only place on this whole planet where anyone is free to practice any religion or none at all is the good ole USA. 

That same blood-stained flag that Union soldiers died next to while fighting to free the slaves, the horrifying screed glorifying that rag flying over Ft. McHenry that holds up the start of sporting events, heck those blood sports are just re-enactments of our rampant global imperialism. Ban 'em too.

I'm sure glad I live in America and not the Progressively clueless fantasy world of Mr. Zinn. Just wade into the fever swamps and straight on 'til midnight, you'll find the nutroots there burning Dick Cheney in effigy.

Now That's a Gaffe   [Jonah Goldberg]

From the AP:

    TOKYO — Japan's defense minister resigned under an avalanche of criticism today for suggesting that the United States was justified in dropping atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki because the attacks saved Japan from a Soviet invasion.

The fact that he is absolutely right and that those howling for him to commit seppuku ought to consider life as a Soviet vassal state will not change the fact that it was a dumbass thing to say.

UPDATE:  Go read IowaHawk's letter from one of the terror docs. That pipe-smokin' assassin is the pure-ass heat.
