The Berkeley Insurrection

Here is part of an email sent to my by Move America Forward's Melanie Morgan:

As investigators continue their efforts to find out who bombed
the Times Square military recruiting center, we have come across more evidence
of the sheer hubris of anti-military radicals in the United States.

Berkeley, California, activists posted an update on their efforts to harass the
U.S. Marine Corps until they close up their recruiting office and leave town.

In an absolutely disgusting maneuver, Berkeley City Council members
Linda Maio and Max Anderson joined the harassment campaign and urged protesters
to keep up their efforts to "impede" the work of our troops. Here you have
American elected officials encouraging insurrection against our military men and
women here in America.

The word "insurrection" stood out to me since the US Marine center, a representative arm of the federal government, is being constantly harassed by a liberal lynch mob. This seems little different to me than the Whiskey Rebellion during George Washington's administration, when the Father of Our Country was forced to take the field against those who refused to obey the law of the land. How long must we see our God given rights flaunted like this before our government acts against these self-styled protesters, who seek to discredit those who defends and protect the freedoms they take advantage of?
