Brave Protestors Put Themselves at Risk

with one comment

Over this past weekend, we have seen the people of Iran get beaten, shot, and stabbed as they fought to make their voices heard against a totalitarian state.  Tomorrow, there will be another protest, where brave men and women put themselves in harm’s way to demand that their votes be counted.  Less reported, is an equally heroic march in the United States.  The protester’s goal is nothing less than the firing of David Letterman.

Sure, they don’t have the media spotlight that the Iranians do, but the heroic selflessness of the New York protesters is an inspiration to all who believe in democracy.   These brave men and women will be ready to confront riot police and interns  outside of the Ed Sullivan Theater at 4;30 Eastern Time, an hour before Letterman goes on live.  While Ahmadinejad supposedly committed voter fraud, Mister Letterman most assuredly made an off color joke about Sarah Palin’s daughter.   At least the voters defrauded in Iran were adults.   I guess Bristol Palin is too, but she’s only 18.

The Letterman rally is the work of Michael Patrick Leahy best known for threatening to sue bloggers and tweaters.  However, standing up to David Letterman and the forces of CBS is going to be even more dangerous.   Stay safe Michael.  Our prayers go with you in your fight for freedom.

  1. Oh my. I think that Letterman will have footage for some fun opening segments for some time to come. I sure hope the Daily Show gets some cameras and one of their senior correspondents over there. Seems like a job for John Oliver. Colbert needs to cover this too.
