The DU Post Of The Day: Huzzah For Killing Americans & Desecrating Their Corpses
I have seen some sick threads at the Democratic Underground, but even I wouldn’t have expected so many of them to be cheering on the Iraqis who murdered 4 American civilians and desecrated their bodies. To applaud the death of Americans, particularly Americans who were in Iraq to guard food being sent to the very people who murdered them in a terrorist attack, is just appalling. This is the unpatriotic left at its sickest and most disturbing…
DulceDecorum: “Death to ALL mercenaries. The beer is on me.”
5thGenDemocrat: “Regular Army here. I wore a uniform and followed Geneva conventions. These swine were MERCENARIES. Paid Hessians. Murderers for hire. John They’re worse than Al-Queda. At least Al-Queda is fighting for a cause. I say “too bad, so sad, bye-bye.”
cliss: “As long as we continue to stomp on these people and “storm through doorways during a room-by-room search” like the thread says, there is no making amends with them. I’ve read numerous articles articles how US troops barge into peoples’ homes at gunpoint, frisk women, stand on men with our boots on their heads. There is only one alternative for them: seek revenge.
They have already come to grips with their situation. They’ve formally kissed good-bye to their own lives, and are prepared to give it up for their culture. Death is OK with them, at this point.
And we’ve driven them to it.”
saigon68: “Ya Payback is a b*tch. A lot of retired mercs and spooks living in Fl on the taxpayers dime after spending years working for companies like Bilgewater Industries. Air America, Continental Air Services, Kellogg Brown (they built Cam Ranh Bay)
I guess these 4 won’t get that opportunity.”
tedthebear: “Dey were da terminators! Only dey got terminated instead. Oops”
cleofus1: “mercenaries. These men are just serial killers with a good retirement plan. They deserve what they get.”
Hat tip to A Small Victory for finding this one.
***Update #1***: From the ultra-popular left-wing blog, Daily Kos…
“Every death should be on the front page
Let the people see what war is like. This isn’t an Xbox game. There are real repercussions to Bush’s folly.
That said, I feel nothing over the death of merceneries. They aren’t in Iraq because of orders, or because they are there trying to help the people make Iraq a better place. They are there to wage war for profit. Screw them.”
Here is an incredibly popular left wing blogger who has absolutely no problem with terrorists murdering a bunch of Americans and defiling their corpses. I can’t tell you how repulsive, unpatriotic, and just plain old sick I find that sentiment to be. But, do you think you’re going to see a lot of left-wingers denouncing what this creep said? No. Is he going to lose a lot of his regular readers. No. That tells you a lot about today’s American left…a lot.
Hat tip to Little Green Footballs for pointing this post out.
***Update #2***: By the way, I thought it was worth taking note of the advertisers on the Daily Kos site. They include a number of people of Democrats running for Congress and even the Democratic National Committee itself. The Daily Kos is an “mainstream” as it gets on the left and he has no problem with Americans being butchered, burned, and hung from a bridge. Like I said, this “tells you a lot about today’s American left…a lot.”
***Update #3***: The Daily Kos has yanked the offending posted a lame, non-apology apology in its place. According to LGF, the Daily Kos has already lost a couple of advertisers so far as well.
By the way, can I share my opinion on something with you? Why of course I can since this is my blog =D What Markos Zuniga — the guy who runs Daily Kos — thinks about these “mercenaries” as he calls them is exactly what he really thinks about American soldiers.
Hell, for all intents and purposes, these guys might as well have been American soldiers. They were in Iraq at the request of the US government to guard food shipments. If our military were bigger, US soldiers would have been doing that job, not these guys. Furthermore, you can be certain that members of the American military have done and are probably still do the exact same job these men were doing in other parts of Iraq.
And no matter how much you loathe the American soldier, you have to say you “support the troops,” even if you don’t mean it, or you get written off as an unpatriotic dirtbag by most of the American people. So you’ll hear the same leftists who rant about Bush being a Nazi and this being an illegal, imperialistic war, having to say through gritted teeth that they “support the troops”. Does that really make any sense? If you think Bush is the equivalent of Hitler, logically, wouldn’t the people in the field by the equivalent of the Nazi soldiers?
But in this case, since these men weren’t soldiers, people like Zuniga get to say what they really think of troops, unencumbered by the platitudes that radical lefties normally have to mouth so people won’t realize how they really think. I’m certainly every leftie is another Zuniga, but a large chunk thinks exactly like he does…
