A video that I think you’ll enjoy

It’s a great video if it satisfies you at a visual, auditory and intellectual level.  Madison Rising has achieved that with “Honk If Want Peace,” a song that vividly illustrates the vast disconnect between Leftist “peace” activists and their violent, destructive, nihilistic activities:

The lyrics are clear (which I like in a song), but here they are if you want them:

Summer’s on the campus
Not a lot to do
The smog hangs low and the boredoms grow
Among the jaded youth

Idle hands breed righteous plans
They miss the anarchy
‘Let’s find a way to rule today
and fix society’

‘The war machine must stop
Life can’t go on this way’
We’ll scream of greed and all our needs
We know just what to say

Chorus:
Honk if you want peace
Honk if you care
Honk if you’re human
And you’re aware
Honk if you want peace
Honk if you care
Honk if you’re human
If you’re aware

A little house in the corner of the city
A young father just had another scare
His little girl had more trouble breathing
But help came in time and now she’s fine, running on the stairs

She leans back, says, ‘dad I love you’
Her mother walks the doctor to his car
‘Don’t wait next time,’ he told her
‘Remember that the hospital’s not too far’

‘The war machine must stop
Life can’t go on this way’
We’ll scream of greed and all our needs
We know just what to say:

Chorus

A mother’s scream, the father races over
His little girl sprawled helplessly
He lifts her up upon his shoulder
And they run frantically

They’re in the car, it won’t be far
Their angel they can save
But as they turn the corner
She’s destined for the grave

Jeering mobs and tie-dyed slobs
People lying in the street
Whistles, drums and megaphones
Everyone repeat:

Chorus

Honk if you dare
Honk if you dare
Honk if you dare
Honk if you dare

Jeering mobs and tie-dyed slobs
People lying in the street
Whistles, drums and megaphones
Everyone repeat

    1.  The first thing I thought of as I read the lyrics (before they turned dark) was Tom Lehrer’s song:
    Oh, we are the folk song army
    Everyone of us cares
    We all hate poverty, war and injustice
    Unlike the rest of you squares.

    2.  “Occupy Seattle” decided to take over a bridge one afternoon last week.  It was the University Bridge which runs near UW Hospital and is part of the way you might use to get to Children’s Hospital from the north end.  Some people pointed this out in the comments in the newspaper and the response was, “Everyone knew for days that this protest was going to take place so they had time to make other plans.”  That wasn’t an official city voice; it was just some random commenter, but it easily could have been the Mayor.
