They made no headway demonstrating against the active military soldiers and had to retreat into the meaningless "We support the troops, but not the war". Troops fight wars; that is the sole reason armies exist; support the soldier, support the war. They didn't gain much purchase at Camp Cindy demonstrating against a man who can defend himself against the representatives of downtrodden masses the world over; representatives wearing $200.00 sandals and suffering catered gourmet meals. All that didn't work. Now they have sunk as low as any sane person can imagine humanly possible.
The liberal fanatics are demonstrating at the front doors of Walter Reed Army Hospital in Washington, DC. They are carrying signs reading "Enlist here and die for Halliburton" and "Maimed for Lies". They have confronted and accosted the families of the wounded soldiers recuperating inside the soon to be shuttered hospital, an oasis and refuge to many wounded soldiers, a place of hope for the families, a place for rebuilding bodies, spirits, and lives.
But, to the demonstrators it is a place of easy prey. A place of safety because the targets can't fight back, can't escape, can't defend themselves. The demonstrators have a captive audience for their vile hatred of liberty and putrid invective of everything the wounded men and women within hold dear. The irony of attacking the crippled heroes who make it possible for the scumbags to protest doesn't seem to faze these cretins.
Marc Morano of CNS News was told by a protester too cowardly to give more than "Luke" as his name, "If I went to war and lost a leg and then found out from my hospital bed that I had been lied to, that the weapons I was sent to search for never existed, that the person who sent me to war had no plan but to exploit me, exploit the country I was sent to, I would be pretty angry." Luke continued, "I would want people to do something about it and if I couldn't get out of my bed and protest myself, I would want someone else to do it in my name."
First Cavalry Division member, Kevin Pannel was treated at Walter Reed in 2004. He lost both legs to amputation after he and his unit were ambushed in a grenade attack near Baghdad. "We don't like them [the protesters] and we don't like the fact that they can hang their signs and stuff on the fence at Walter Reed." Speaking of the wounded soldiers, Kevin Pannel said, they "are there to recuperate. Once they get out in the real world, then they can start seeing that stuff. I mean Walter Reed is a sheltered environment and it needs to stay that way." But, not according to the One Name Man, Luke, who thinks the " young men who returned from Iraq with their bodies shattered after George Bush sent them to war for a lie" need to be subjected to daily annoyance, torment, and torture .
"It's very easy to pick on the families of the wounded," said Albion Wilde. " They are very vulnerable ... I feel disgusted... They lost the election and now they are really, really angry and so they are picking on the wrong people."
As they say on Southpark, "Democrats really piss me off!"
