Invasion of the Gun Snatchers

This animated comedy short illustrates that what many feared would take place if Barack Obama was elected will soon become a reality: Get ready for the immediate implementation of the Give All the White People’s Guns to the Black People campaign. And that’s just for starters.

China Factory Made ‘Free Tibet’ Flags

We ran a cartoon a few days ago that showed a Chinese factory churning out “free Tibet” gear. That imaginary image has since become real. The Chinese government has discovered a factory in Guangdong that mass-produced thousands of “free Tibet” flags, which Chinese authorities fear will soon end up on the streets of Hong Kong as the Olympic torch makes its way there.

Bill Maher on Phony Patriotism

The “Real Time” host agrees with Barack Obama that wearing an American flag pin is but a token of patriotism that probably doesn’t amount to much: “Show me a man wearing an American flag pin in his lapel, and I’ll show you an a—hole.”

The Final Act of Submission

The former weapons inspector who foretold the Iraq disaster argues that the newly empowered Democrats have allowed the Israel lobby to subvert America’s foreign policy by tacitly endorsing war with Iran.

His Iconic Image Lives On

Now that the Iraq war has lasted longer than the U.S. role in World War II, it seems an appropriate time to pause and reflect on the death of a man who provided one of the great icons of that earlier conflict.

John Boehner
From thanhniennews.com

Boehner Gets Nailed on Campaign Ad Hypocrisy

From Greg Sargent at the Prospect: “GOP House Majority Leader John Boehner wants you to know that it’s OK if Republicans use images of people killed on 9/11 for political purposes, but at the same time, it’s very very bad indeed if Dems show pictures of flag-draped coffins.” How’s that?.... (more)

Waving the American Flag

Phew!
What a past few years it has been for the American flag ... embraced throughout the world after the Sept. 11 attacks; denounced throughout the world not long after; subject to a Republican attempt to make it fireproof during the last two national election cycles….
So with flags waving high during this Fourth of July, Truthdig invites its readers to reflect in the comments box on the nature of patriotism and nationalism. Here are some primers from E.J. Dionne, Howard Zinn and John Kerry (more)

While the GOP Frets Over Nonexistent Flag Burning…

A brutal dictator in North Korea threatens our country with an “annihilating strike and a nuclear war” in response to America’s rhetoric over N. Korea’s possible missile launch (which was probably a hoax anyway).

  • Keep in mind that Sen. Orrin Hatch said that passing the flag-burning amendment was “the most important thing the Senate could be doing.” Good to know the Republicans really have their eye on the ball.

    The N.Y. Times’ Modest Proposal to the GOP

    From one of today’s Times editorials: “Given the topics that have preoccupied Congress lately, one wonders why the Republicans don’t simply propose a catchall bill aimed at illegal gay liberal Mexican flag burners and be done with it.”
    Why not indeed?

    Even Scalia Opposes Flag-Burning Amendment

    The arch-conservative Supreme Court justice is quoted in this Jonathan Alter column as saying that banning flag-burning would “[dilute] the very freedom that makes this emblem so revered.?
    Mr. President, when you find yourself to the right of Antonin Scalia, you’ve crossed over into crazy town.
