DC Conservative (and Liberal) Protests
I've been gone since October 6th, and I arrived in Washington DC at about noon on October 7th. I was chaperoning for a class trip. They wanted me to go because I'm the moderator for the Young Republican Club. We stayed at the Holiday Inn near Dumbarton Oaks Park, and I took a few kids on a tour of GW University, in case they wanted to apply. On the first day we were there, one of my students saw a group led by moveon.org demanding an immediate withdrawal from Afghanistan. She turned and asked me, "Ms. Destofy, what are the liberals protesting?"
I laughed and told her, "I'm not sure Kate. They already won."
Then on Saturday, October 17th, there was a much smaller anti-media protest. I would point out that I didn't attend any of these rallies, partly because they were liberal ideals but also because a teacher can get fired for having political views on the job. I had to watch from afar as people gathered all over the Washington Mall with signs and big Obama puppets. It was such a hilarious reversal of the last eight years. You see, in Sun Tzu's the Art of War a moving army is always victorious. Once you fortify and set up defenses, your defeat is inevitable. That's why Bush made such an easy target. He was trying to defend America from the worst series of tragedies that had befallen it in recent memory. After he won, liberals spent a full eight years spreading lies, protesting, and burning flags. Now it's our turn, and Obama is on the defensive. We are the guerilla fighters (Metaphorically- no guns. As a teacher they terrify me. I am extremely pro-gun control) and Obama is the man behind the city walls. We must fight him using the tools and weapons that Liberals developed for Bush over the last eight years.
