National Guardsman Attacked by Leftist Douchebags

Words have consequences and these types of attacks are inevitable given the rhetoric of the increasingly not-so-fringe left .

At some point saying "I support the troops" while simultaneously jumping on every allegation against them that they routinely "massacre" civilians reaches the breaking point of psychological dissonance.

A rational and moral person cannot support troops which are baby killers. At some point, either you will reject the premise that our troops are bloodthirsty killers or you will hate them.

The victim's name is Alexander Powell and he has been instructed by his superior officers not to discuss the matter any further with the media.

KIROTV:

The Pierce County Sheriff's Department is searching for five people who allegedly attacked a uniformed National Guardsmen walking along 138th Street in Parkland Tuesday afternoon.

The soldier was walking to a convenience store when a sport utility vehicle pulled up alongside him and the driver asked if he was in the military and if he had been in any action.

The driver then got out of the vehicle, displayed a gun and shouted insults at the victim. Four other suspects exited the vehicle and knocked the soldier down, punching and kicking him.

“And during the assault the suspects called him a baby killer. At that point they got into the car and drove off and left him on the side of the road,” Detective Ed Troyer with the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department told KIRO 7 Eyewitness News.

The suspects were driving a black Chevy Suburban-type SUV.

Hat tip: Editor in Pajamas who points out that the douchebags asked the victim if he had seen any action. The inference being that he was attacked because the SOBs actually thought that he was a baby killer.

I know it is hard for some of you to grasp, but people hate the United States and its soldiers because they actually believe we are the bad guys. I heard Howard Zinn on Dennis Prager's radio show yesterday. If you only believed half of what Zinn has to say, you'd spit on our soldiers too.

All the suspects are described as in their early 20s, many wearing red caps. Why all the red hats? Could it be.......

1 I know of an anarchist group that wears red hats. They also claim to be environmentalists but why would they be in an SUV then?

3 >>>five people who allegedly attacked a uniformed National Guardsmen

Five to one odds is about the numbers it takes to get a Lib to stop pretending he's a "pacifist." Get him alone though, and he's a Ghandi devotee.

4 Hey! I went to school there... OK, so you're probably right, there are a bunch of idiots there.

5 My first thought was UW--way more idiots there--but they have that gay purple and blue thing going for them.

6 Hello - it's gay purple and gold, thank you very much.

And really, it couldn't have been anyone from Wazzu because they're usually to inebriated to accomplish anything. Am I right?

7 by the way, Catholicgauze, i do like the "red anarchists" theory. It was the first one that popped in my head.

8 Pat Buchanan's against the war too. Sounds more like a bunch of skinhead, white supremacists types to me. You know, members of your base.

Do you need a towel for that drool?

13 I want to hear what Brad has to say before I make up my mind on this. Looks bad, but I'll withold judgment. And Hesiod, I believe the guy was reported to have hair. Just so you know.

Posted by: jesusland joe at August 31, 2006 10:19 AM

14 And it's also not just about being against the war. The hardcore Left was against the war from the beginning, not because it wasn't in our nation's best interests (as Buchanan argues) but because it was "immoral" and because of "civilian casualties". In other words, because they belive our soldiers ARE baby killers.

Posted by: Jihad Rusty Dirka Dirka at August 31, 2006 10:39 AM

15 Yeah. The driver was blonde. So maybe they were Neo-Nazis, and not skinheads.

Still works.

16 That's funny. The only member of the KKK currently in the Senate is Robert Byrd. What party affiliation is he, again?

17 Hesiod:
It would seem to me that someone that can stereotype someone by their hair color would also have no problems characterizing someone by their skin color too, and you say racists are the Republican base?

What a maroon.

23 Wazzu suffers from a terminal proximity to U of I. It is not their fault morons from Northern Idaho trickle down from time to time and end up on campus. BTW, they are just across the border from Moscow. Huh? Bloody commies with their red hats.

25 Why in the hell won't one of these shitheads stop me when I am walking? I have my Peace through Superior Firepower t-shirt on when I huff and puff, so maybe that is scaring them off. I still have my W bumper sticker on my truck, and that doesn't seem to help either, but mayhap my 10-gauge pump in the gun rack discourages anything but sour looks. I think I shall have to change my tactics.

26 It is sort of a Brown shirt thing. I hope with all my heart these guys are caught. Maybe some time as the cell block beyatch will give them a better perspective on freedom, and civil rights.

28 BTW, WSU is the party school of the two. Hands down. UW is the hippie school. Isn't UW the school who wanted to deny Pappy Boyington his props on campus?

Posted by: SeeMonk at August 31, 2006 08:28 PM

29 You got it SeeMonk, UW is the school who wanted to avoid honoring Boyington for being a "rich white male" and a "murderer". Higher education at its finest /sarcasm.

Whoever did this needs to be strung up by the balls and fast. I have never been punched by one of these anti-war types, but they have tried to corral me and pushed me around at various anti-war events early in the initial war with Iraq. I always found it funny how the 'pacifists' and the 'more open minded' who 'favor free speech and open discourse' seem to be the first to employ force to get their message across or if someone has a different viewpoint.

30 This story wasn't even mentioned on the 10:00 local news here (which routinely reports whenever people gather and wave flags above the Fort Lewis overpass). The few news reports online are conflicting (one says it happened Tuesday at 8:30, another said Tuesday afternoon). Something is not right with this report. If it really happened, it would be all over the news tonight.

Posted by: thehim at September 01, 2006 12:49 AM

31 There was one report that was subsequently pulled from the TV stations' website quoting a witness who claimed that there were at least three men in military uniforms involved in the scuffle.

35 No way the assailants were Cougs! The anti-war leftists confine themselves to the west side of the state. Pullman is 8 miles from Idaho. WSU is the drink beer/chase women/shoot coyotes at night with a mini-14 with hot rounds and spotlight kind of school. Er, not that I would know personally, of course. I um, read about this somewhere. Or something.

40 From the KIRO-TV website:

"A witness who came forward after the incident told KIRO 7 Eyewitness News a different story about what happened on Tuesday morning, but deputies said the witness later changed that story when they interviewed him.

The witness told police he saw several men in uniform beat a man in civilian clothes, but later changed his account to back the guardsman.

Investigators said the witness's stories were inconsistent with the guardsman's, and they are back to "square one" in the investigation."

Something sounds VERY fishy here.

43 A question for those on the left or right is whether they are supporters of the principle that violence is wrong in being used against those with different political views.

Some of the posters on the right above show they are not supporters of that principle.

They're just base criminals who are enemies of the principles of the US.

44 Heh. Lefturd idiots like hesiod think that they actually are going to be able to continue forever just like they are, but nothing stays the same forever, and one day soon, if there's any justice in the world, there'll be lefturd corpses decorating the overpasses. I just hope I have enough rope.

Posted by: sandpiper at September 03, 2006 07:54 PM

46 Posters like I mentioned previously - and immediately following my post - are the enemies of America, who would follow the path away from the principles of democracy and freedom of thought and speech to the old ways of violence used for political control.

The only ones who belong in jail are they after they act, and in a civics class now.

Posted by: Craig at September 06, 2006 10:47 AM

47 I have been in the National Guard for more than 20 years now and, while this incident is sickening, I must say that general public support for those of us in the Guard has never been stronger.

I recently set up a site to provide "National Guard" logo t-shirts and other items and have found that not only do fellow National Guardsmen order items but so do employers and others just wanting to show their support.

Anyone interested can check it out at:

Maybe a few more people need to "show the colors" to prove that America in NOT represented by the idiots in this story.
