On "swiftboating" Murtha...

Originally posted on Murtha Must Go!!

We on this blog have been accused by some of the fever swamp's "finest and brightest" blogs of "swiftboating" John Murtha. As I have stated before, John Murtha's military service has never been and will never be a focus of this blog. John Murtha's military service is a moot point, for his legislative career of cronyism, opportunism, and outright sedition speaks for itself. John Murtha's military service is irrelevant, at best, except to the extent to which Murtha himself utilizes his service to shout down critics of his lamebrained ideas.

The lefty blogs have now gone on to define "swiftboating" as any attempts to criticize a veteran. Period.

The question I pose to them:

Why is criticism of the ideas of John Murtha held up as "swiftboating", while criticism of conservative war veterans (does the name, "Donald Rumsfeld" ring a bell?) is held up as fair game?

Since they themselves refuse to answer, let me venture a guess.

Given their "blame America First!" mentality, liberals are desperate for cred in the realm of national defense--any cred--as a faux platform of "legitimacy" from which to launch and spread their anti-war, anti-American propaganda.

Face it. There aren't a lot of decorated veterans in their camp. So when they finally get one, they hang on to him and guard him like a dung beetle guards the last remaining piece of crap in the barn yard. A decorated veteran in the moonbat fever-swamp--especially in their efforts to gain credibility during a time of war--is a precious commodity, to be protected and guarded at all costs.

He is placed on a token pedestal of convenience, to which the fever-swamp moonbats can point and claim instant credibility; like some sort of talisman that will magically protect their intellectually-bankrupt ideas from the light of truth.

What the fever swamp left fails to take notice of, however, is that their utilization of their "token veteran" as a platform of credibility for their "hate America!" message is an exercise in futility, in as much as dressing a tree stump in a lab coat will not give it any credibility as a rocket scientist. Yet, like a socially-inept 350 pound guy sporting a Speedo on a crowded beach, the left carries on with this charade, oblivious to the fact that people are actually laughing at their efforts.

The far left elements that have hijacked the democrat party in the last decade have always been about contrivance. They have at least enough sense to know that they cannot come out and say just who they are and what they believe, because they know that they wouldn't then stand a snowball's chance in hell of gaining any kind of elected power. So they must couch their defeatist, hate-filled ideology in more palatable vehicles... sort of like their own version of a sugar coated shit sandwich. Such is the case with the fever-swamp's sudden "come-to-jesus" reverence for veterans.

Liberal veterans, that is.


Remember how I said that the democrat party was one of contrivance? Here's proof positive. In the video, among other contrivances, they show hurricanes, implying that Bush is responsible for them. They also display a faux, unsmiling mugshot of Tom DeLay:

...rather than the one he really took:

Like I keep on saying--it is impossible for the liberal democrats to say who they really are. I believe that is also genetically impossible for them to tell the truth.

And, never have I seen a political party in the history of the United States (outside of perhaps the socialist or communist parties) that was so hellbent on its own country's destruction, and so invested on losing a war.

In the video, does the democrat party show pride in our troops with images like this?

HECK NO!!! They, being the defeatists and pro-terrorist propagandists that they are, show an image like this, instead:
Just goes to show how the democrat party is still willing to sell out its own country in its unstoppable at-any-costs quest for power.

On Flag-Draped Coffins (a poem)

I thought I’d seen it all I guess

In videos from the East;

Enough to tell me nothing less,

We’re dealing with a beast.

Such savagery and blood lust,

Sawing off our soldier’s head,

Ensures to me that we must

Leave all these bastards dead.

And yet may God preserve us

From those too weak to serve,

Faint of heart, afraid of service,

With no will to save, preserve.

They shriek about the troops lost,

Deplore our mounting dead,

Ignoring what our freedom cost,

In the steps our nation tread.

Now when their country needs them

To mount a solid front;

They’d sacrifice our freedom

For the power they so want.

On flag-draped coffins standing,

Crassly using our dead brave,

To our enemy they’re now handing,

What those dead fought so to save.

Some day there’ll come a reckoning, a payment for the pain,

To those who used our dead so ill, for naught but power’s gain.
