Sometimes I Get A Headache

I got an email containing the Sparrow Project's latest press release.  I read it and thought, "Good Heaven's, I'm so glad these people let me know the nonsense the will happen later this week in NYC".

It seems that -


Yeah, this nitwit Birgitta Jonsdottier us going to visit NYC and on Friday the 5th she's going to

" host an evening of art and dialogue in support of jailed Iraq war whistleblower, Pfc. Bradley Manning, at Judson Memorial Church (55 Washington Sq. South, NYC [map]).  A 6pm benefit informal art auction & film screening will be followed by a panel discussion, beginning promptly at 8pm. The panel discussion will feature Jonsdottir in conversation with Alexa O'Brien and Kevin Gosztola, journalists who each have providedextensive coverage of the Manning pretrial proceedings at Ft. Meade, MD, along with Peter Hart, a critic with the media watchdog group Fairness & Accuracy In Reporting.  The panel will be moderated by Sam Seder, host of the political talk show, The Majority Report."

So I get right on Twitter and send some anti-Manning tweets while surfing for info on this chick and her supporters.........

Haha! Sparrow Project isn't warning me about this event - they are celebrating it!

What?  Why would anyone who reads my blog or my FaceBook or my Twitter or any comments I've ever made think I would want to do anything but spit on Manning for endangering US Troops???

First it was a Twitter follow from the IAVA (Iraq Afghanistan Veterans of America).  Now this.  What could these groups possibly be seeing to think I would agree with them or work with them?

So I emailed the Sparrow Project guy -

Hey Pal,

I don't know what I could have sent out into the social media universe that would have sent you a green light to contact me.  But mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.  Bradley Manning is a treasonous enemy of the United States.  And not even an earnest principled one.  Just a loser.

I'll unsubscribe myself, but maybe you want to check your filters or something.

Many people I love stand or have stood between your freedoms and America's enemies.  I feel sorry for you that the best you can do with those freedoms is spout this nonsense.  But it is your right.  Don't worry, I cherish and appreciate it enough for both of us.

Good God!
