More Liberal Hypocrisy: Pat Tillman By The Ace

You’ve got to be kidding. When Spec. Pat Tillman was killed, here is how liberals reacted:

Saying comments about the death of Pat Tillman had become “disruptive,” an anti-globalist website linked to Teresa Heinz Kerry has removed a hate-filled thread assaulting the memory of the ex-NFL player who became an Army Ranger.

The Portland, Ore., branch of the Independent Media Center originally ran the headline “Dumb Jock Killed in Afghanistan” above a story by the Washington Post about Tillman’s death last week in a firefight with militia forces in Afghanistan.

The website was filled with comments affirming the headline, and adding others.

One suggested an alternative headline, ” … or, how about, ‘privileged millionaire, blinded by nationalist mythology, pisses away the good life.'”

Another suggestion: “‘Citizen of empire allows ignorance to cause him to die for imperialism’ or maybe … Capitalist chooses to kill innocents instead of cashing check.”

Commenting on the article’s reference to a “brave American,” a reader replied: “‘brave’???? for going over to Afghanistan completely uninvited and slaughtering brown-skinned people with advanced weaponry?”

Another said: “Tillman chose to go to Afghanistan. He’s partially reponsible [sic] for the deaths of hundreds, maybe thousands of Afghan civilians. No need to feel sorry for him, other than feeling bad that he was brainwashed into serving as a grunt.”

In his May 3, 2004 strip, Rall leads off by depicting Tillman meeting with an Army recruiter and saying, “Never mind the fine print. Will I get to kill Arabs?”

“it’s amazing the kind of attention this insignificant incident is going to cause. well, he was rich, white, and an american. 10,000 (brown) iraqis get killed, and it barely merits a mention in the american news. how utterly f- —ing sad.”

“if he ‘sacrificed’ anything it was his common sense. He had a good American thing going and blew it.”

Now they are insanely pretending to care that he’s dead by peddling conspiracy theories that Bush and/or Rumsfeld had him killed. But remember, Bush is a “dry drunk” and “stupid” but smart enough to phony up a terrorist attack and have fellow Rangers kill one of their own….
