“There’s nothing more pathetic than an aging hipster.” [Bumped]


John Kerry: Pathetic Aging Hipsters and the Warmongers They Became If George W. Bush was inclined to take out Saddam Hussein over very obvious national security risks, these aging hipsters lost their minds.
Bashar al Assad poses no security threat to the United States and is, in fact, holding down the truly dangerous Islamists in his own country – and these same peacenik hipsters suddenly sound trumpets like Teddy Roosevelt’s Rough Riders. One would think, if one was truly a peaceful person and believed all of the tired clichés like “Make Love Not War” and the fatigued chants like “Hey Hey LBJ how many kids have you killed today”, that they’d be consistently against war. Apparently they are not. And people wonder why the word phony gets tossed at them.

Your Say

There are no aging hipsters, only decadent pussies.

Whoa, major bummer here. Somebody slipped belladonna into the acid and the worms crawling out of the skull's eye sockets were singing "Heigh Ho heigh ho, it's off to work we go ..." Maggots doing Busby Berkeley, it was tasty.

Haw haw, serves 'em right.

They aren't phony, they are treacherous.

They consistently side with those who hate this country.

Hippies gone wild!

You cannot shame someone incapable of comprehending the concept of hypocrisy.

They, on the other hand, can get you and a lot of other innocent bystanders killed and not even think twice about it.

One thing that is rarely acknowledged is that they were always children of privilege, oblivious to the concept of consequence.

It was clear from the middle '60s that the most ardent hippie/antiwar/trendy-lefties of my acquaintance had virtually nothing to lose, and were unable to comprehend that not everybody spent their summers at the lake.

The really wierd thing is that if you run into a pro-war leftist, they just cannot argue their position, they have no capability to convince anyone of anything. All they can do is spew these one-phrase lines that sound so tepid and absurd as they stuff paper machet heads of Bush in the closet to hide their no war signs.

You get the distinct feeling even they know they're full of crap but they have to go through with it for the party anyway.

Anyone notice what these two have in common??

They both married into immense fortunes.

All the rest is just words.

You mean the kind of one-phrase line that fit on a bumper sticker and can be attached to the back of a Prius?

Back when some were known as "the anti-war left", I would grimace mightily, for I believed that they were simply "the left", regardless of our nation's war footing.
They have revealed themselves to be what we've always known them to be:
Anti-American leftists, loyal only to that which furthers their agendas.
