John Edwards observes no taboos. Under the heading “10 Things You Can Do Over Memorial Weekend to Support the Troops and End the War”:
Get vocal. Buy a bunch of poster-board and markers. At a picnic or with family and friends, make signs that say “SUPPORT THE TROOPS – END THE WAR.” Bring them to your local Memorial Day parade. Then take a digital photo of yourself and your family or friends holding up the poster and tell us about it. We’ll include it in a “Democracy Photo Album” on our site. (emphasis added)
Memorial Day used to be about remembering the sacrifices of wars past. Now it’s about politicizing parades.
