DailyKos: Screw the Troops, Too

Master of the fever swamps Markos "screw them"* Moulitsas has finally weighed in on the John Kerry debacle, and Republicans should take heart at his appoach:

So John Kerry mangles a sentence in a public appearance, and the right-wing smear machine and its traditional media enablers are apoplectic. I mean, John Kerry is a, um, junior senator not running for reelection! And he's, um, a war hero who hates the troops! And um, we hate him because he's John Kerry!

Kerry has nothing to apologize for. The people who have turned their backs on the troops do. And even though this ridiculousness will lead the evening news, fact is, we should embrace the opportunity to remind Americans how Republicans rally to the "troops" defense only when it suits their own cynical political ends.That's right. Kerry shouldn't apologize for insulting everyone who proudly wears the uniform of the United States. Why should he? Kerry never apologized for calling US troops in Vietnam murderers and rapists.

If Republicans want to debate who supports the troops more, let's have that debate.
Let's do that, kos, let's talk about how you and your deranged band of BDS sufferers support the troops.

Soldiers are guilty until proven innocent.

Soldiers are child molesters.

Soldiers commit war crimes, using napalm just like Vietnam.

*kos notoriously said of American civilian contractors, murdered, mutilated, hanged, and burned in Iraq: "screw them" (screen capture).

1 And we are expected to believe John Kerry wasn't talking about the troops. roflmao!

Mr. Kerry, you are an insuferable snob and elitist, and a fucking liar to boot.

2 Kos and DU, (lotsa angry words) it makes the post smaller ...

When I was younger I used to give advise on how to vandalize peoples property when they were disgusting like that. I was sort of an unpaid consultant. I can't recall that anyone ever followed said advise ...

I liked parking lots and cars.
Older cars you could screw up by yanking the ditributor cap. Then you would get rid of it by dropping into the bed of a nearby pickup, preferably a moving one. At 2Am (bar closing)it would be kinda hard to fix.

Also, minute rice is effective wherever suitable moisture is available. Gas tanks, radiators, or wiper fluid. I know it sounds juvenile, and cars are more secure than they used to be, but the basic ideas remain the same. You find something your (non-deadly) enemy values, something vulnerable, and you just get inventive.

I have no idea if the Kos kids value anything, its hard to get into minds that small ...

(suggestions edited out due to graphic nature)

USA all the way!

4 The US didn't sign the treaty so they aren't bound by it. Napalm is still legal. What the hell is Markos whining about? WP. Great stuff!! And before anyone starts whining what I just said, we're fighting an enemy that belongs to no country that the UN or NATO can condemn or punish and this enemy doesn't play by the rules of the Geneva convention . All the rules are thrown out the window when dealing with terrorists. If they had biological weapons they'd be using them right now on us. Fuck'em. Light up the desert in Orange and White. Start with Sadr City and keep the ball rolling. The 'new orange' revolution starts not in a former Soviet state but in Iraq. Let 'em smell the napalm.
Kafir dhimmis like Kos deserved to be shot for submitting to Allah already (without converting yet)and being a traitor to their country and those who protect the freedoms that come with being an American.

5 White Phosphorous isn't against the Geneva Convention anyhow:


"Incendiary weapon" means any weapon or munition which is primarily
designed to set fire to objects or to cause burn injury to persons
through the action of flame, heat, or combination thereof, produced by
a chemical reaction of a substance delivered on the target. (a)
Incendiary weapons can take the form of, for example, flame throwers,
fougasses, shells, rockets, grenades, mines, bombs and other containers
of incendiary substances.

(b) Incendiary weapons do not include:

(i) Munitions which may have incidental incendiary effects, such as illuminants, tracers, smoke or signalling systems;"

But most libs will ignore that and launch into more conspiracy drivel.

6 I just re-read the John Kerry nonsense article again. I like how Kos relegates the former Presidential candidate against Bush in 2004 to the status of junior senator. Is that how Dummocrats expect to elections, by sending their junior senators to the big show? And then he calls Kerry's comment a joke. Maybe Koz finds it funny but the troops aren't laughing. The troops know who supports them and who the traitors are, but hey I shouldn't question Democrat's patriotism, right?

7 They are hypocritical idiots.

Posted by: newyank at November 01, 2006 05:17 AM

8 Don't forget that Kos was one of the "troops" himself. According to his F'n hero, he's a slackjawed uneducated loser...

Actually, that's not too far off the mark.

Posted by: Stewed Hamm at November 01, 2006 05:21 AM

9 I am still getting past Kooze call Kerry a war hero...I guess having 3 Purple Hearts, but not knowing exactly how you got them, hell, not being sure when and where you served, then throwing (someones) medals over the White House fence, makes you a hero in The Kooze Kids eyes...

11 I love it when a lefturd shoots himself in the foot after sticking it

together, otherwise, I can't explain why they keep proving to us how
execrable they are..

12 Wow, BDS is growing out of control and the election is still a week away. This morning one older guy was jabbering about Bush, Steele,Stem cell research, abortion, Michael J Fox, and how the Republicans are all lying bastards. It was real amusing listening to him explain stem cell research to the bus driver. He did not understand the process or the issue one bit other than it did involve some 'life issues.'

I look forward to the left having a meltdown next Wednesday when the cold reality is that the Repubs retain control of both houses of Congress.

Then there will be the return of Post Election Selection Trauma. Gotta love it.

LOL. We call it the MSM, and they enable Dems, not the GOP, moron. Just look how they're scrambling to cover for Kerry.

...and a piss-poor joke teller. He had better keep his day job, since he will never make it as a stand-up comic, since he can't even read the joke correctly, to bash Bush on his failed Iraq policy.

He needs to keep his mouth shut until after the election.

The good news is that no one's mind will be changed as a result of Kerry's remarks.

Democrats understood the joke, even if Kerry bungled it.

Republicans will find fault in everything any Democrat says, anyway, so none of what Kerry said will affect the election.

Posted by: Puddleduck at November 01, 2006 10:37 AM

15 I love how Kos complains about people hating John Kerry because he's, um, John Kerry (which no one does, people who hate him have good reasons for doing so). Never mind the BDS from the left, who all hate George Bush because he's, um, George Bush!

The hypocrisy of the left is truly stunning.

Posted by: cory at November 01, 2006 10:44 AM

16 Kerry still thinks it's 1971 - we have a draft - students are seeking deferments - and if you can't get the student deferment then you risk getting drafted.

How is it that Kerry doesn't know that the military of 2006 is different then the military of 1971? No draft, no hiding in school behind deferments?

He has no excuse - he has advisors, and access to info. His "job" is to be informed. Why isn't he?

What a narcissitic, lazy bastard - trying to get political traction based on facts 40 years old. His stupidity is mindboggling.

17 Bluto,
It's unfathomable for me that an American would do this to American troops. I'm not even American, but I feel indebted to the U.S. troops and indeed to all coalition troops for my personal freedom particularly my freedom of worship.

18 Do Kos kids drive nice cars?
Sometimes people don't lock their cars ...

India InK! Supersoaker! Windsheild!

India Ink! Windshield cleaner resevoir!

Draino in the radiator! What would happen?

How many ways can you use fix-a-flat?

Cement around the gas cap!

Liquid nails into the door locks!

Itching powder into the fresh air intakes!

Itching powder tucked up in the sun vizor!

Wire running from Ignition to car seat! Eek!

Liquid bleach? Never tried it ...

Just knocking out headlights with a baseball bat is wrong ... It takes no imagintion. It might feel good, and be more expediant ... I'm not saying that anyone should do any of the above, even if they had the chance though.

Hey, its all meant as a joke. I wasn't trying to make a serious comment. I swear it was all in fun. I'd swear it in court.

And I don't have to apologize to any Kos-Hacks,

And if my joke isn't funny, thats OK. Neither is Kerry's :(

USA all the way!

Posted by: Michael Weaver at November 01, 2006 02:16 PM

19 It wasn't a joke, puddlebrain, and you know it. It would take an idiot and an idiot party to think that was a joke. I believe that describes puddlebrain and the party he supports.

20 Michael Weaver,

hahaha!! I see we had the same childhood pranks!! Leaning garbage cans full of outhouse water against someone's front door, knocking and running was hilarious. Garbage bags full of oxy-acetylene with a 5 minute fuse line were fun too, especially for blowing out school windows. If it were me now, a thermite grenade under the front hood would be entertaining.

Posted by: Big White Infidel at November 01, 2006 10:44 PM

21 Not that I would ever do anything like that now. Nah!! Although, tying oil rags to a cat's tail, setting the rags alight and throwing the cat into a mosque during Friday prayers might be interesting.
