Reason TV – What happened to the anti-war protests?

If you have not been watching the high-quality Reason TV videos during the last few months, you’re missing some good Web content. This video gets into the anti-war protests from the past, and the lack of mainstream Democrats protesting now.

Granted, the situation in Iraq is quite a bit different than two years ago, but are the protesters who were loudly complaining about the situation in Iraq in 2007 really OK with what’s happening in Afghanistan right now?

Maybe Martin Sheen and his crowd really are out there protesting actively and the mainstream media is just ignoring the protests to keep the Obama administration from being labeled war mongers?

Hat tip to Ed Morrissey at Hot Air who notes…

The neo-Stalinist International ANSWER, one of the groups featured in this film, must have thought they were achieving some sort of mainstream penetration into politics when Democrats started flooding into their rallies. Now they’re back to street-corner protests and “Honk If You <3 Peace” rallies and wondering why it suddenly got so lonely.

    Now that this subject is brought up…. I have said to fellow service members that there is much less "I support the troops, not the war" since the current administration took office. Funny how things change….

    I remember Bill Moyers on PBS; in the name of fair and balanced coverage, he played soundbites of Rush Limbaugh while showing still pics from Abu Ghraib… I miss the liberal outrage!

    The only difference between Bush's Afghan policy and Obama's is that Bush believed in what he said. Obama clearly doesn't.
