A Military Flyover -- On MLK Day???

It will have to go down as one of the most egregious slap-in-the-face stunts of the Smirking Chimp Maladministration. At the height of a huge Martin Luther King Jr. Day rally in San Antonio, the Air Force did a flyover of the crowd using a couple of T-1A Jayhawk training jets.

A show of military force, on the very day set aside to honor the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, and America's most vocal spokesman for peace and non-violence.

Think about that.

It has to go beyond simple ignorance. It has to go beyond "just an error in judgment, my bad, ha-ha". This has to be deliberate, a slap in the face to the legacy of Dr. King and a warning to all of us "peaceniks" on the ground that maybe next time we'll get an application of that old napalmolive skin lotion.

Well I've got news for you flyboys and your puppetmasters all the way to the upper reaches of the White House: We will not be intimidated and we will not be frightened down some fucking rabbit hole.

We shall overcome.

doubt anybody was scared with the fly over, hell most of them aren't smart enough to comprehend what a military show at his memorial means. Maybe if you had said Ghandi they would get it. Today they just don't get it.

Did you notice the tiny parachutes with micro implants in the fly over pictures?

Maybe because that's one of the highest honors the military can show a fallen hero?

Oh, I'm sorry, I forgot, even the "veterans" now believe that we're jack-booted killing machine thugs.

Nice.
