Whack a Peugeot for Our Troops
Some folks in Nashville, Tennessee, demonstrated their irritation with the French by smashing a Peugeot. Story here from the Nashville Tennessean.
'What does bashing a Peugeot have to do with peace?'' said Steve Gill, rhetorically. ''Nothing. But most of the peace rallies have nothing to do with peace either. They're just attacking America. By calling our rally this, we just wanted to underline that point.''The quoted demonstrators sound more interested in supporting our folks in the military than explicitly supporting a war. How much of that is accurate reflection of the distribution of attitudes at the demo or accurate reflection of the reporter's biases is unclear.
