Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Oh, I can't close my eyes
And make it go away
How long must we sing this song
How long, how long...
'cause tonight...we can be as one
Broken bottles under children's feet
And the battle's just begun
Wipe the tears from your eyes
And it's true we are immune
(Sunday, Bloody Sunday)
The real battle just begun
The more the implications of the last election sink in, the more I see Bush starting to make use of his "mandate," the more convoluted the situation in Iraq becomes, the more depressed I am about the direction of this country. I can't get this quote out of my head:
When Hitler attacked the Jews I was not a Jew, therefore I was not concerned. And when Hitler attacked the Catholics, I was not a Catholic, and therefore, I was not concerned. And when Hitler attacked the unions and the industrialists, I was not a member of the unions and I was not concerned. Then Hitler attacked me and the Protestant church -- and there was nobody left to be concerned. -Martin Niemoller (as printed in The Congressional Record, October 14, 1968)
So many Americans think it's okay that Bush is in the White House because he's "a man of God." It's a slippery slope you're on, people. Slicker than duck shit. Just because your group's identity hasn't been attacked yet doesn't mean the precedence for it to be attacked isn't being set. The Constitution is only as strong as the people legislating, interpreting and executing it, and those people are not currently on the side of your freedoms. Not really.
