Banned Peace Group Float in Yard Next to Parade Route

As promised, the McHenry County Peace Group has its float in place at the corner of Dole and Pierson.

My wife decided to go get some of that designer coffee before going to church at 11 and suggested two locations.

Since one would take her to Downtown Crystal Lake, I suggested she buy it there.

And, I asked that, if she saw the float, she take a picture of it.

It was.

She did.

Above is a view where you can see the flame.

Below right, you see a side view complete with sign giving the web site of the McHenry County Peace Group.

I still can't see the face well enough to know if the Statue of Liberty is shedding tears as a result of the group’s having been banned from the 4th of July Parade by the Gala Committee.

This is the parade that the McHenry County Democratic Central Committee decided to boycott after the peace group was banned. That prompted former Democratic Party Chairman Patrick Ouimet to quote that famous U.S. Supreme Court decision by Mr. Justice Brandeis.

History is repeating its self.

Vietnam War remains eerily relevant. We have not learned to mind our own business. We have not learned that all human life is priceless. We continue to believe our way is the only right way, and mistakenly force our government and culture onto the rest of the world.

Everyone likes to say, "Hitler did this", and, "Hitler did that". But the truth is Hitler did very little. He was a world class tyrant, but the evil actually done by the Third Reich, from the death camps to WW2 was all done by German citizens who were afraid to question if what they were told by their government was the truth or not, and who because they did not want to admit to themselves that they were afraid to question the government, refused to see the truth behind the Reichstag Fire, refused to see the invasion by Poland was a staged fake, and followed Hitler into national disaster.

This should garner more attention than the parade itself.

So, does this mean Crystal Lake is against peace now?
