This is the kind of democracy many of your fellow Americans are now supporting...
TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras – Honduran troops detained seven international journalists covering the aftermath of a military coup Monday, freeing them unhurt a short time later. The government also took at least two television stations off the air and interrupted the broadcasts of others.
At least 10 soldiers, most with rifles drawn, arrived at the hotel where journalists from The Associated Press and the Venezuela-based television network Telesur were staying and unplugged their editing equipment in an apparent attempt to stop their coverage of protests in support of deposed President Manuel Zelaya.
The media apparently have been acting on orders from the government, though it is unclear who has been giving them. Soldiers have been posted around some television and radio stations and around the national power and phone companies.
Meanwhile, Rush declares that what is happening in Honduras is "what many of you wish would happen here, without the military..."
Being patriotic means supporting torture? Defending liberty and freedom means backing a Central American coup that sends a democratically elected President to another country in his pajamas? Loving the United States of America means wanting to overthrow your President?
No. The end doesn't always justify the means, as some in America apparently believe.
It is times like these that I'm damn proud to say that I voted for Democrats in this last election and will continue to support their idea of what democracy is and isn't. While President Obama is far from perfect, he sure beats the hell out of the crap I hear coming from conservative's mouths these days.
