An Ordinary Anti-War March

Can’t we stage an anti-war protest without communists? Without hate-slingers? Without Hollywood liberals? Can we have a march with just ordinary Americans? No Bush=Hitler signs. Just Americans voicing their displeasure for the Iraq war in a real and tangible way without worrying about being associated with radicals.

And if we do so, will the right-wing attack machine still call us unpatriotic? Cowards? Will they say we hate the troops?

I want to have a march without the anger. With no simmering hatred. With no ultimate agenda. I want ordinary people of all stripes and creed. All of us with just one clear message: Mr. President, we are the deciders. We are an engaged populace, and we think we’re headed in the wrong direction.

Or maybe you do need a plan. Maybe it can be: Let’s withdraw to Kurdistan and Afghanistan. I don’t know if that’s the right move.

I just want a march with no commies allowed.
