Rep. Pete Stark says President Bush Amused by US Military Deaths

Representative Peter Stark, D-Calif., 13th district displayed a disgusting mean-spiritedness today after the House of representatives failed to override the President's veto of the SCHIP bill. We have all become accustomed to the low brow rhetoric of contempt coming from the liberal leftists on Capital Hill nowadays, but Stark's comments are inexcusable.

Shortly after the vote, Rep. Stark said in front of cameras, the public, the American people, MSNBC, God, and everybody,

"You don't have money to fund the war or children, but you're going to spend it to blow up innocent people if we can get enough kids to grow old enough for you to send to Iraq to get their heads blown off for the president's amusement."

People can have differences of opinion and Stark certainly is entitled to his. But, his comment today goes far beyond a difference of opinion. It is vulgar. It is disgusting. It is childish. It is so many words that in my own anger I cannot even think of them. Saying the President wants our Soldiers, Marines, Airmen, Sailors, and Coast Guardsmen to be killed, that he gets his jollies by having their "heads blown off" is beyond any degree of decency.

Stark is disgrace and should be condemned and censured. The Democratic Party and leaders should also condemn Pete Stark and do so immediately. Democrat rhetoric has long ago crossed the line of common sense and any form of good manners and decency. If the remarks of Pete Stark are not condemned by the Democrat leadership, and don't hold your breath, then the whole of the Democrat Party needs to be condemned. Stark, at the very least, owes the American public an apology. Better would be a letter of resignation effective immediately.

Goddamn Pete Stark. Goddamn anyone who does not Goddamn Pete Stark.

Indigo, I understand how you feel but think about this: Let him talk! The more these people act like the traitorous hateful idiots they are by spouting their vile lies, the more they expose themselves. Given enough rope they may hang themselves yet. I wish I could help them with that!

Indigo Red said...

Yeah, I know, Gayle. But I can't help but feel that this kind of rhetoric and deportment just debases the entire system to the point it becomes the norm - which it has become in many ways.

It is when our leaders cannot contain their own remarks within the bounds of agreed upon decencies that our 1st Amendment rights will begin to be seriouly curtailed.

At one time it was simply understood that yelling fire in a crowded building was not a good thing to do. Now we have laws against it because we are told to question authority and now we can't say alot of things. Often, even what we think is being abbrogated.

The coarsening of society is not good because it allows behaviour that is simply rude and slowly eats at the foundations of our consensual society until it will crumble from it's own self-created irrelevance. How can we fight Islamofacsism when good and evil are equally weighted; how can we oppose union with corrupt Mexico when we can no longer define corruption; how are we to survive as a free nation when we, each and everyone of us, can't control ourselves and govern what we say by any acceptable norm of a good and decent people?

With people like Stark, this nation cannot endure. Lincoln's government and nation "of the people, by the people, for the people" shall perish from this earth precisely because the people cannot control themselves and must increasingly be controlled.

Yes and this guy needs a controlled dose of haldol and a nursing home!

It's the drug of choice for liberals these days!

Stark is dumping poison down the well of our political discourse and doing it on the floor of the House of Representatives.

Yes, he needs to be exposed for what he is. And his party, whose leadership from the top down has encouraged this type of thinking should be held accountable.

Someone should run a commercial showing the video where Howard Dean says "I hate Republicans and everything they stand for" then show Harry Reid calling Bush a "loser" and a "liar" and Nancy Pelosi's choice words too.

Then show Pete Stark and ask "Whose responsible for this kind of political hate speech?"

The answer is clear.

I would have thought the Liberals drug of choice was the instant stupid pill. It's put into all the bottled water.

Thanks, Mike. That's exactly what is happening and I don't like it. Rick Moran has written on this topic, too, Left Rejoices at Stark Smear, in which he makes similar points, but writes better.

Did you guys catch it on the news the other night when Charles Gibson said there was no news from Baghdad because there had been no incidents? Isn't that news?????? Does that mean if there is good news there is no news????

Indigo Red said...

The absence, Don, of bad news in Iraq is an absence of good news for the media. I heard Gibson when he said there was no news from Iraq and was LMAO shouting at the TV, 'You moron! That IS the news!'

But it does reenforce the actual definition of NEWS. News is an event out of the ordinary. No violence is the ordinary, normal state of affairs, while violence is, in fact, not normal activity. Because the media does such a wonderful job at finding that one violent incident and reporting it ad nauseum, most folks have the impression the whole world is at war all the time.

I totally agree with your last paragraph. Such comments are not worthy of anyone elected to some of this nation's highest offices.

Tom Stark is completely dispicable. If the Democrats want to oppose the war, they can at least keep from lying and smearing. They make the worst characters on the right look good.
