"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

Meanwhile, Over In Freeperville

The Little Green Footballs attempt to discredit the success of the Anti-War Rally by minimizing the turnout:
What If They Gave a Protest and Nobody Came? Getty Images has some interesting photos from today's "anti-war" demonstration in Washington, DC, hosted by the peace-loving Stalinists of International ANSWER. The interesting part: no overall crowd shots so we can gauge the size. The only crowd shot I've seen so far is at Yahoo, where it looks like the turnout was much less than 100,000 people. The biggest crowd seems to have been at the free concert.
And Red State simply calls the attendees a bunch of America haters:
These people represent part of the face of the peace movement. It is a movement that hates capitalism, hates Christianity, hates Bush, and hates you. The peace movement is no longer about peace. It is about the destruction of our way of life. It is not that the peace movement could be about peace. But, those who want peace have delegated to the effective leaders. The effective leaders want peace and think peace means the destruction of the United States.
