USA: Bush’s chickenhawks at the Moonie cult’s


This is a video from the USA; the song “Chickenhawk” by Roy Zimmerman.

From the blog of Max Blumenthal in the USA:

Generation Chickenhawk: the Unauthorized College Republican Convention Tour

On July 13, 2007, I visited Section 60 of Arlington National Cemetery, where the bodies of American soldiers killed in Iraq were freshly interred. Afterwards, I headed across the street to the Sheraton National Hotel, owned by right-wing Korean cult leader Sun Myung-Moon [see also here and here], to meet some of the war‘s most fervent supporters at the College Republican National Convention.

In conversations with at least twenty College Republicans about the war in Iraq, I listened as they lip-synched discredited cant about “fighting them over there so we don’t have to fight them over here.” Many of the young GOP cadres I met described the so-called “war on terror” as nothing less than the cause of their time.

Yet when I asked these College Republicans why they were not participating in this historical cause, they immediately went into contortions. Asthma. Bad knees from playing catcher in high school. “Medical reasons.” “It’s not for me.” These were some of the excuses College Republicans offered for why they could not fight them “over there.” Like the current Republican leaders who skipped out on Vietnam, the GOP’s next generation would rather cheerlead from the sidelines for the war in Iraq while other, less privileged young men and women fight and die.

Along with videographer Thomas Shomaker, I captured a vivid portrait of the hypocritical mentality of the next generation of Republican leaders. See for yourself.

Those ‘medical’ excuses by young Republicans for not themselves fighting in Iraq are even more lame, considering that in its shortage of recruits for its Iraq war, the Bush administration has lowered all military recruitment standards, including medical standards.

Republican director of the “Young Republican Federation” Nicholas Elizondo molested his 6-year old daughter and was sentenced to six years in prison: here.

  1. BUZZFLASH DAILY HEADLINES

    Yesterday, I received an offer that I could refuse.

    It was an email invitation from Tom Culligan, vice president of the Rev. Moon-founded Washington Times:

    Please accept this as your personal invitation to join me on what promises to be one of the most exciting and enjoyable getaways in recent memory: the August 27 – September 3, 2011 CPAC cruise: North to Alaska!

    Don Rumsfeld will be one of your fellow shipmates. As will NRA president David Keene, American Conservative Union chairman Al Cardenas, Americans for Tax Reform president Grover Norquist, and, of course, yours truly….

    I have to tell you: when I watched “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” on my big-screen TV, I fell in love with that wild and wonderful state. And, now, I can’t wait to roam its pristine terrain.

    Holy wolf hunting from a helicopter with a sniper rifle! I just had to check out the cruise web site, only to find that the most inexpensive single cabin was $2,502.

    Of course, there is also the Koch brothers’ accommodations package for the princely sum of $6,826, but it might be worth the price just to have that mini bar and open sea verandah for relief if I had to pal around with Rummy, Grover and Ralph Reed all day.

    There’s nothing like sailing toward the Arctic, which is expected to dramatically accelerate its meltdown in the next few decades, with a rogue’s gallery of global warming deniers and neocons.

    But it’s a moot point. The only way I could afford the cruise would be to find some large gold nuggets, maybe in front of Sarah Palin’s window from which she can see Russia.
