Anti-War Fruits Burn US Soldier In Effigy

Effigy - A crude representation of someone disliked, used for purposes of ridicule.

Just so we're clear on the definition of effigy since the dictionary is becoming a little used/respected relic these days.

The protest was in Portland, OR, and you can see the full stock of photos of the event here.

This is how it all got started.

The initial lighting ... notice that this is a training day for future anti-war fruits.

What would an anti-war protest be without an upside down burning flag, and masked jihadi wannabes?

Abe Lincoln wants peace huh? I'm sure he's real happy you're defacing his monument.

This last picture I actually find to be the most laughable of them all. Again ... Please note the kids here. Aside from the fact that we have yet another protest in which publicly funded monuments are desecrated ... they have no idea what Abe would really want, but I do.

Lincoln went after anti-war fruits like those above. He suspended habeas corpus, and imprisoned 18,000 Confederate sympathizers without trial. Many of them were Copperheads (anti-war Democrats). You see ... Lincoln would not tolerate actions such as this, or the actions of Murtha. Dissent is fine ... supporting the enemy is not.

"Congressmen who willfully take actions during wartime that damage morale and undermine the military are saboteurs and should be arrested, exiled, or hanged."
- Abraham Lincoln

Somehow I doubt Abe would support your anti-war fruit effigy.
