80-Year-Old Church Deacon Arrested For Anti-War T-Shirt

-- by Dave Johnson

This is the new America.

Police arrest anti-war protester, 80, at mall,

An 80-year-old church deacon was removed from the Smith Haven Mall yesterday in a wheelchair and arrested by police for refusing to remove a T-shirt protesting the Iraq War.

Police said that Don Zirkel, of Bethpage, was disturbing shoppers at the Lake Grove mall with his T-shirt, which had what they described as "graphic anti-war images." Zirkel, a deacon at Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal in Wyandanch, said his shirt had the death tolls of American military personnel and Iraqis - 4,000 and 1 million - and the words "Dead" and "Enough." The shirt also has three blotches resembling blood splatters.

Well, he SHOULD have been arrested for propagating a lie. Specifically that there are a million Iraqi's dead because of this war. The Lancet study (and itself) have been thoroughly discredited as partisan hackery.

But you guys just keep spouting that lie. Gods, you guys are like flat-earthers.
