How Does The Democratic Party Keep Producing People Like This?: You know, I just do not understand how a United States Congresswoman can be so incredibly ignorant that she would compare Osama Bin Laden to the Founding Fathers. It just boggles the mind that U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D., Toledo) said something like this…
“When America “cast off monarchical Britain” in 1776, it involved the help of many religious people who had fled repression in other countries, the 11-term Toledo congressman said. Among the nontraditional American revolutionaries were the Green Mountain Boys, a patriot militia organized in 1770 in Bennington, Vt., to confront British forces, she said.
“One could say that Osama bin Laden and these non-nation-state fighters with religious purpose are very similar to those kind of atypical revolutionaries that helped to cast off the British crown,” Miss Kaptur said.”
Yes, you read that correctly. She is saying that Osama Bin Laden is “very similar” to people who fought to free our country from the British — people like George Washington, John Adams, James Madison, Ben Franklin, John Hancock, Patrick Henry, John Paul Jones & Thomas Jefferson.
That is a repulsive and sickening statement for anyone to make and the fact that a congresswoman would say it is reprehensible. If you want to know why so many people don’t believe the Democrats can be trusted to defend our country, you only have to look at statements just like this one and the anemic reactions to them by other Democrats to see exactly why.
