Left Profits From War Dead

ALa notes that some on the Left are marketing items with the names of those killed in Iraq. They refuse to omit those names to comply with the request of grieving family members. It has led to legislation in several states, as well as a federal law proposed by Representative Dan Boren - a conservative Democrat from Oklahoma.

She makes an excellent point: legislation should not be necessary; those who are doing this should have the common decency to respect the wishes of the grieving.

What I wonder though, is why there is a fair amount of attention given to the despicable acts of the Fred Phelps crowd - protesting at the funerals of fallen soldiers - but no attention to this equally offensive act? The media should give some attention to this, as well.

Back to the top.
