Kate McMillan Perverts McCrae's 'In Flander's Field'

Kate McMillan is the author/owner of a blog called smalldeadanimals. Her right wing rants are famous - making her one of the most read blogs in right wing circles. But Kate frequently goes over the deep end and says things that blow up in her face ... even with the right wing hordes that she adores! Today is one of those days.

You see, Kate is angry today at the Toronto Star for a cartoon they did yesterday depicting Stephen Harper and General Rick Hillier. To challenge the Star, Kate took the famous poem by McCrae - In Flanders Field' and perverted it to her own deranged logical 'conclusion'.

I posted the following on her site .... "I think Kate's perversion of McCrae's poem would be much more offensive to the old Vets at the Legion Hall today then the cartoon she is ranting and raging over. Shame on you Kate ... your emotional illness is becoming more and more evident to those who read your raging hatred!"

Here is the entire McCrae poem, uncontaminated by Kate McMillan's political agenda and extremely disturbed revisions:

In Flanders Fields
By: Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918)
Canadian Army

IN FLANDERS FIELDS the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

... if you need to comment on this why not comment at her site ....
