“So, 4000 rubes are dead. Cry me the Tigris. Another 30,000 have been seriously wounded. Boo f…ing hoo. They got what they asked for–and cool robotic limbs too.”
Thus begins a virulent anti-American soldier screed titled “F**k the Troops,” written by Politico Magazine reporter Ian Murphy during the Iraq War. His current offering for Politico, “How I Punked Scott Walker,” appeared yesterday as the number two profiled story in the website’s new magazine. It describes Murphy’s failed attempt to upend the Wisconsin Governor’s historic battle against public service union collective bargaining rights.
Murphy’s May 2008 column appeared as the intense combat of “the surge” was winding down. As Murphy said “…our soldiers are lauded by all as saints. Why? They volunteered to partake in this savage idiocy, and for this they deserve our utmost repsect. I think not… stop sucking off the troops. They get enough action raping female soldiers and sodomizing Iraqi detainees.”
This is how the Left in this country feels about our troops
HUSHED BUT NOT FORGOTTEN: The Democrat Party’s Long and Shameful History of Bigotry and Racism – Home – The Daily BailPosted: November 2, 2013
“Then over the weekend, I had a race discussion with some college-educated, self-professed Democrats who had no idea that President Lincoln was a Republican and that the Democrat party fought to maintain slavery in the South. They were also unaware of the history of racist Dixie Democrats. They had completely bought into the myth that the Republican Party was racist through and through, and as far as they were concerned, the Democrats had always fought for minorities.
Then last week , I did the story on Mary Frances Berry and her stunning admission that branding the tea party as racist was a Democratic political tactic and not a truth. So my anger at Democrats for their glaring historical race hypocrisy has indeed been escalating, which has lead to this post.
Finally, let me say that I likely could have found a similar treatise on the history of racism within the Republican party (Jesses Helms comes quickly to mind), and perhaps I will do such a post one day.
But, the truth is that on the hypocrisy scale regarding race relations, no one can hold a candle to the Democratic party. When you count ‘using the race card’ as one of your political strategies as Democrats are doing, well then, I have no choice but to slap you around like the lying, hypocritical punks that you truly are.”
