Conservative or Jive?
A few days before Halloween, a link was added to the list at right to a blog that promotes the Bush agenda and bashes "Sleepy Liberals."
The author of this blog has a chunk in his craw about the local "liberal" peace groups, whom he accuses of treason, and his new web site has a short list of "LIBERAL jihadi groups" including the Unitarian-Universalist fellowship, the local Peace Coalition, and the Longbranch coffee shop (with a link to the menu!, described as a "Left wing Liberal Jihadi hang out, owned by a Muslim cult group," referring to the organization behind the Branch).
Well the Dayemi Tariqat is not a cult, but a religious organization which, among other things, provides service to the poor. Sure, the service can be poor at the 'Branch, but it's still the top coffeehouse in town. You don't have to be a global gourmet to know that.
But the Global Conservative' takes the line that "Liberals" (anyone who opposes the hateful war in Iraq) "hate America" and are labeled "Liberal Jihadis" . . I wonder what he thinks of the so-called "architects" of the war, who are now bailing out on the President and his team. Read excerpts from the interviews in Vanity Fair. All you "right wingers" should read it -- and get with the program.
Or, have a gander at this editorial calling for Rumsfeld's removal hot off the presses of the Military Times Media Group.
What this town needs is a good Neo-Conservative coffee shop.
