NO PROTESTING ALLOWED!….WE WON A MANDATE!….And so it comes to this: merely protesting the war is now enough to bring the Secret Service calling.
It seems that some high school students in Boulder are opposed to the war ? that’s a shocker, I know, students opposed to war ? and planned to sing a Bob Dylan song at a student talent show. Dylan, if memory serves, was some kind of anti-war hippy himself.
Anyway, a few local parents and students apparently decided the Dylan song was being used to “promote an extreme leftist point of view” and that the lyrics to “Masters of War” were a direct threat to the president’s life. So the Secret Service was called.
Delightful, isn’t it?
On a side note, though, “Coalition of the Willing” is kind of a cool name for a band, don’t you think? Way better than their first choice, “TaliBand.”
