Cornell Student Opposes Thanking Our Troops

More moonbattery reaches us from the City of Evil, where Cornell junior Rob Fishman denounces the idea of expressing gratitude to our troops fighting terrorists in Iraq on our behalf.

According to Fishman, inviting us to honor the sacrifices of our soldiers is a "crafty strategy of misdirection," aimed at tricking us into siding with our own country in the war. The idea that you can support surrender and also support the troops doesn't wash with Fishman:

I wonder how much longer we can separate the actions of our troops from the White House's stubborn policy of "Stay the Course." [...] I thought the Nuremberg Trial of Eichmann had put to bed the defense that you can just "follow orders."

Don't blame Dick Durbin for Fishman's notion that our troops are the moral equivalents of Nazi war criminals. Cornell being an Ivy League school, he's probably hearing it from each one of his professors.

Though thoroughly insincere, maybe Charlie Rangel's call for a military draft has some merit after all. It would be highly educational for the pampered moonbats who write in college papers to step outside the ivory tower and get a glimpse of the sacrifices others make to preserve their right to run their mouths.

Durbin's not the only moonbat who can't tell our troops from Nazis.

On a tip from Wiggins.

Somebody's angling for an internship at the New York Times.

Somebody's angling for an absolute asskicking.

Ya know, I really wish I could run into one of these unconscionable a**wipes, and considering where I live, you'd think that'd be easy, but no dice.

Maybe I need to move out east, huh?

An internship? I'd say he's angling for editorship.

Have you seen this about the guy who burned himself in protest of the war?

Eichmann wasn't at the Nuremberg Trial. He was hanged in Israel, about 15 years after the war. This guy isn't a history major is he?

Believe me, this is commonplace in Ithaca. I grew up just north of the place and actually live there for a year. Besides San Francisco, Ithaca is one of the most liberal cities in America. Seems like the protest were rights, free Tibet, and on and on and on....
