Jon Swift has the story: Moonbat bridge players are spreading their America-hate abroad by holding up a “We Did Not Vote For Bush” sign at the world Bridge championships in Shanghai. And I second this thoughts:
How weak will the United States look to the rest of the world if we can’t even scare a few lady Bridge players into backing away from criticizing the President?
“Freedom to express dissent against our leaders has traditionally been a core American value,” Ms. Rosenberg, who held up the sign, wrote in an email that should be turned over to the FBI for investigation. “Unfortunately, the Bush brand of patriotism, where criticizing Bush means you are a traitor, seems to have penetrated a significant minority of U.S. bridge players.” It is almost as if she is daring the President to have her executed for treason.
Champion Bridge player Robert S. Wolff disagrees with what the team did. “While I believe in the right to free speech, to me that doesn’t give anyone the right to criticize one’s leader at a foreign venue in a totally nonpolitical event,” he said. Apparently, Ms. Rosenberg and her teammates are completely unaware of the criticize-one’s-leader-at-a-foreign-venue-in-a-totally-nonpolitical-event exception to the First Amendment.
Head over to Jon’s, read the post, and wait for the right-wing bloggers to track down the Bridge teams’ personal information and post it all over the internets for stalking and harassment.
