Daniel Ellsberg Arrested!
But, he was protesting America’s war against Afghanistan, which is now being waged by a Democrat, Nobel Laureate, so therefore, you will not have seen such news mentioned on FDL, right?
After all, as soon as the Democrat was given control of the war machine, the (D) captured Netroots demobilized, and their oh-so-sincere opposition to imperial slaughter dropped to last priority.
So, venture outside a little your comfort zone, and read about 131 sincere, dedicated, authentic, brave people of principle, getting arrested for non-violent civil disobedience protesting Bush/Obama’s stupid, costly, missionless, unwinnable war in Afghanistan.

There is always some petulance from followers of the Blue Legacy Party when their complicity and support for the wars is pointed out, but I ask you – if 131 folks were arrested at the White House protesting something FDL leadership actually cared about, don’t you think they would write about it?
So, there we go.
Candidate Obama vied with McCain in making hawkish pronouncements about escalation in Afghanistan, and Firepups voted for him in droves.
And now, the site downplays and ignores courageous protest against the wars.
So, take ownership – this is what you support– and remember, Vote (D), no matter what!
