Citizens Against The Troops
Here’s a fun website (if by fun, you mean annoying, infuriating, and outrageously moronic): Citizens Against The Troops.
Here are a few quotes from the front page of the website:
“Above are people from Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas, protesting at a dead scumbag’s funeral earlier this year. They are heroes, and make a valid point: Dead soldiers are a good thing!”
“The count of dead scumbags rises often. When the body count does rise, we celebrate American stupidity. Remember: A soldier who dies for his country still dies and another dude gets his bitch. We are citizens against the U.S. troops. Donald Rumsfeld is pledging that the number of troops in Iraq will be reduced, but does this mean that those scumbags will be kicked out of the military? Nope. They will continue to live the cushy life at the expense of the taxpayer. Over the holiday weekend, at least three scumbags died. Semper Cry!”
“A soldier is dead in Iraq. The story goes that he died for his country, but the moral of the story is that he’s dead and now another man gets his woman. Worse than that, however, is the fact that the taxpayers must now dole out $400,000 due to his poor life decisions, and essentially support his miserable scumbag family.”
Is this supposed to be some sort of joke? Is the person who runs it mentally ill or have they just read one too many Ted Rall cartoons? No idea, but wow, this is one sick website…
Hat tip to The QandO Blog for pointing out the website.
*** Update #1 ***: Via Brian at Iowa Voice, I learned that the guy who runs this site, Michael Crook, is the same guy who sent a greeting card to a wounded soldier suggesting that he die. Nice fellow isn’t he?
