Democratic Underground Post Of The Day

DU Post Of The Day: Here’s the crazed wacko post of the day from the DU[1]. When you read stuff like this at the Democratic Underground you just have to wonder how in touch with reality some of these people are…

HappyLibLady (1155 posts): “It was interesting to see the interviews being held with a few of the POWs captured by the Iraqis.

I noticed that the interviewers spoke in calm, comforting voices, and I saw how one of them put a gentle hand on the shoulder of the young African-American female. Her eyes seemed to express a terrible fear, and that is likely because she was trained/brainwashed by the US miltary to believe all Iraqis are blood-thirsty murderers.

I have faith that the experience of these POWs will leave them non-plussed and very confused. I expect that they will be given good treatment, decent food and clean quarters during their confinement, and that they will be released, unharmed when the time comes.

Maybe I’m just dreaming, but it is my hope that the POWs will discover that they were treated better by the Iraqis than they have ever been treated by the very people who are supposed to be protecting them on the battlefield. And, in the case of the African-American woman, she may find that people in the Middle East, unlike too many of the folks back home, do not consider her a second-class human being because of her dark brown skin!”

That reminds me of the human shield I mentioned earlier[2] who was shocked that the Iraqi people didn’t like Saddam. It’s hard to believe there are people in the world who are actually this naive…

Democratic Underground Post Of The Day

Democratic Underground Post Of The Day: A denizen of the Democratic Underground[1] seems delighted by the idea of “repuke loving GI’s” dying in Iraq so that Democrats can gain a political advantage back in the states…

Starpass: …GI Joe loves Bush and GI’s from Florida even bragged about voiting for him more than once. Well, I look at it this way: there is more than one way to get your f*cking brains blown out for your country. The generals have warned how ultimately bloody and bogged down this fairy tale sweep of Iraq in 3 days and 15 minutes is going to be. Hopefully as these repuke loving GI’s die and are attacked by gas/chemicals, etc., the result will be a turning against Bush here in the Homeland by the brain dead public. Maybe by the deaths of these GI Neandethals who think that Bush and the repukes are God, “we the people” will be able to have the ammo to overthrow this Nazi regime. Too bad these guys can’t take a hint from their brass and understand that they are being used, their safety disregarded, simply for the advancement of corporate America. But if they can’t figure out what their brass already knows and keep up these insance cheers for the repukes and hisses for the Dems, maybe their deaths will return this country to the people as they realize that Bush’s dream team is simply a nightmare of old, sick, has beens.”

Another DUer follows that post up with…

HjalmarPoelzig: How many of these high-and-tight motherf*ckers do you think would be only too happy to train their guns on us as we’re forced into shipping containers for our one-way trip to the internment camps?

These aren’t members of the Greatest Generation/Dad’s army, these are dittoheads with heavy weapons and the training, and most likely the will, to use them. On us. It’s coming, you know it is.”
