Dems to Make Props of Military Bases

The Washington Times reports on a new Democratic strategy described in a memo distributed last week by the office of Harry Reid (D-NV), the Senate Minority Leader. The plan is to hold press events at military bases.

Using military bases as props for political spectacles is particularly inappropriate when you consider that much of the rhetoric emanating from Democrats is clearly intended to demoralize our troops — an obvious example is the seditious propaganda gushing from the mouths of Howard "Dr. Demento" Dean and John "Moonbat Jack" Murtha. Their evident goal is to bring about a catastrophic defeat in Iraq, which their friends in the media would then help them hang around the necks of Republicans. The best interests of the country, much less our troops, isn't even an afterthought.

As Senator George Allen (R-VA) observed of the new tactic:

It is pitiful. We are at war. This country needs to be unified and realize who the enemy is — it's not fellow Americans.

Or is it?

Will Mad Howie soon be talking his trash at military bases?

Actually, I believe any active-duty soldier who allows himself to be used as a prop for a politician is subject to court-martial under the Code of Military Justice. The military are supposed to stay out of partisan politics.

I'll go ahead and beat the Moonies to the punch:

"But Bush has spoken on miliary bases before!"

The difference, however, is that Bush is their Commander-in-Chief. It is his duty to speak to the troops in order to boost morale and give them an idea of what they're fighting for. If Bush had spent the last five years avoiding military bases like the plague, Democrats would be accusing him of being too afraid to face the men he's "sending off to die."

Plus, I doubt Harry or Nancy will be able to pull enough troops to listen to them rant on about how this isn't a legal war and Bush is a war criminal.

Just another example of a party void of all decency and honor. I really hope they try this, it will backfire worse than the Wellstone memorial.

I wonder how their protests at soldiers' funerals and Walter Reid are going? Can we question their patriotism yet?

Keep it up Dems. Every thing you do is one step closer towards the chasm that soviet communism jumped off in 1988.

Right, hasfanatic moonbat supreme loser?

Funerals. Sorry, that's right wing nut job Fred Phelps and his brand fo religion.

As far as Bush speaking at military bases -- he's used troops for political props plenty of times.

Just ask the Coasties his people ordered grounded during Katrina recovery efforts. Not a kind word in the room from those guys who'd rather have been saving lives instead of posing for a photo op.

Junior, Fred Phelps is an active Democrat.

Posted by: Van Helsing at March 23, 2006 1:41 PM

Sorry Junior. Fred Phelps is more your type: totalitarian dictator (disguised as a Christain). Besides, aer your sure he's not just a plant of KKKarl Rove? No-where near right wing.

(right now I'm enjoying picturing the sight of juniors tin foil hat spinning on his pointy little head--LOOOOOL!)

Posted by: Doug at March 23, 2006 1:59 PM

RR: Is W not the commander in chief? Funny in that role, he is required to be in the presence of the troops occassionally.

Posted by: nikko at March 24, 2006 10:43 AM

Phelps is a right winger -- anti-gay, anti-liberal, fundie. Sorry, he's a wing-nut, not a moonbat.

As far as the CinC addressing the troops -- fine. But his photo-ops are nothing more than making himself look good in photo-ops. He uses the troops as props to sell his political packages.

I know the truth hurts.

Talk to the Coasties on the Gulf Coast. They can't say President Bush -- without inserting an expletive between "President" and "Bush."

Van, you really should read some of the stuff in that link you posted.

Phelp's Bio points out he protested with photos and signs reading:

AL GORE FAMILY VALUES (with a cartoon of two men having anal sex)
GO HOME (with a cartoon of Bill Clinton)
BABY KILLER (with a cartoon of Hillary Clinton)
BABY KILLER (with a cartoon of Bill Clinton)
FAG GORE

There's a reference to him attending the Clinton Inaugural balls -- but you have to read down a bit to see Phelps attended as a PICKETEER "with signs proclaiming that Gore, Clinton, and both men's families were going to Hell...."

He's run as a Democrat to hack off the majority party in Kansas -- which can keep him off the ballot.

But he's no Democrat. He's anti-gay, anti-abortion, and anti Democrat.

He's a full blown Rightwinger in their purest form.

We kick jackasses like this to the curb.

Posted by: nikko at March 24, 2006 5:17 PM

Phelps is a Democrat, dipsh#t...whether you like it or not. You don't get to define him...he already defines himself as one of you.

Man, you moonbats are homophobic!

Posted by: Jonathan at March 24, 2006 7:47 PM

Scared of the real right wing beliefs that rest below the surface? See a bit of yourself in Phelps?

Bet you didn't complain when he was bashing Clinton.

Or were you on Michael Moore's side when he led a counter protest of Phelps a few years ago? You say you were on Moore's side?

Good to know.

PS: Might want to see what real soldiers are saying about Bush's little Iraq adventure -- that's dragged us away from the War on Terror.

Founding member of Delta Force and former Command Sgt. Major calls it a complete debacle.

Guess you want to call this decorated vet a moonbat, too?

Posted by: Ronald Reagan at March 25, 2006 4:50 PM

Founding members Major Woody and Private Parts were telling me they hate bush...they prefer my benwah balls.

Guess you want to call these rumproasters moonbats, too?

Posted by: Ronald Reagan at March 25, 2006 10:27 PM

Not exactly, Ronnie...

Just assholes.

Nope...I'm not a Democrat! LOL!

Bet you didn't complain when he was bashing Clinton.

Unlike you, I've always thought a guy who starts a web site called God Hates Fags dot com is a crackpot. I guess you don't, since he's one of you, i.e. a Democrat.

Or were you on Michael Moore's side when he led a counter protest of Phelps a few years ago?

Was this before Phelps took up Moore's talking points about the war in Iraq? Or did Moore take up Phelps' talking points. I want to make sure the proper credit is given to the originator... :-D


Might want to see what real soldiers are saying about Bush's little Iraq adventure.

I did, in the 2004 election. They voted for him over your "war hero" to the tune of 70% - 30%. No way to polish THAT turd, dipsh#t.

Gene-who cares? You're sending your own kid out to die for a pack of lies. If you can justify that in your own mind and live with yourself, go ahead and spread your hate.

Nobody in your world is putting their ass on the line for any of us, so don't even try to feed us your Kool-Aid.

Gene-who cares? You're sending your own kid out to die for a pack of my benwah balls and designer leather #ssless chaps. If you can justify that in your own mind and live with yourself, go ahead and spread my #ss cheeks. I hope you're a big burly biker stud with a diamond studded dog collar.

Nobody in your world is putting their ass in the air for any of us to sample, so don't even try to feed us your heterosexual anti-animal drivel.

"heterosexual anti-animal drivel"

Your mommy must be so proud.

If that's the best you've got, you might as well stuff your head in an oven and get it over with.

Fuckin' amateur.
