Communist Lawmaker Barbara Lee Doesn’t Want Tax Dollars Spent On Defending America

Brave New Films, an anti-American agitprop outfit that defends just about everything that is corrupt and evil in America (e.g. ACORN, resdistributionism, social justice), has a new film out called “Rethink Afghanistan.”
These leftists argue that on this day, Tax Day, Americans should question if their tax dollars should continue to be spent on the war in Afghanistan which is being fought against al Qaeda and the barbaric Taliban. Of course left-wingers only care about taxes when the government is spending money to defend America — suddenly they start to sound like good government fiscal conservatives when tax money is used in military operations. Flush tax dollars down the toilet with useless social programs, grants to activist groups, and the like and the left doesn’t care.
Leftists believe the only proper role of the U.S. soldier is as a social worker. Digging wells in the Third World is noble to progressives but fighting America’s enemies is harsh and ugly.
Here’s a blurb on the outfit’s website about the new film:
This is another Tax Day in the middle of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, and our country is still in trouble. Many are still out of work. Times are tough. People are hurting.
We don’t have hundreds of billions of dollars to waste, but we are wasting them anyway–on the Afghanistan war.
How has the Afghanistan war affected you? What would you want to fix if we could spend those funds here at home, instead of wasting them on a war that’s not making us safer?
This conveniently ignores the fact that the war in Afghanistan was launched with broad consensus on the left and right because its then-government, the Taliban, essentially painted a bullseye on itself by collaborating with Osama bin Laden and the other 9/11 terrorists and then bragging about that complicity to the whole world. Reasonable Americans can disagree about the Iraq war but not on Afghanistan. Even former DNC chairman Howard Dean supported it.
Lee, a communist-sympathizing traitor who passed top secret documents to a hostile foreign power, and the other politicans argue that money spent on defending the American people from Islamic totalitarian terrorists could be better spent on Big Government programs stateside.
It’s revolting stuff.
