What were you really thinking?

"May you rot in hell". Writes Michelle Malkin to an antiwar protester who spat on an 82nd Airborne amputee being treated at Walter Reed. Malkin's comment is short and to the point, though I can't help thinking that the protester's main problem was that he let his mask slip and let his inner self come through the teeth of his talking points. Not just the antiwar side, though. The bully side.

If there is justice in the afterlife the protester will rot in hell.
While here on earth I have had my 40 year fill of anti war protesters. Anti-America fellow travellers, people who burn our flag and call it freedom of speech...so
Since I live in Florida and have a concealed weapons permit, AND Florida has a Stand Your Ground law, should I get into a confrontation with an anti, and it turns nasty I am allowed to stand my ground and shoot them. A 1911A1 .45ACP makes a nasty hole. So don't push too hard. This isn't 1968 and I don't give a shit about your right to protest.

wretchard -- Malkin's anger, and her unvarnished expression of it, is a better cleaner reaction to the scumbag than is your attempted analysis of his inner state. Call a spade a spade. And leave it at that.

Bullies!

Right!

And let us not forget that they are racists as well - only way to could explain their attitude toward the people they would abandon to an earthly version of Hell. As Nick Cohen said in a recent article on the emptiness of the anti-war Left, it was explained to him by an old-time Lefty that in order to further their current agenda "We will have to forget about Saddam's victims."

And Habu, I live in Florida, too. I have no concealed carry permit; it would be useless for a .303,. 5.56, 7.62, or .308 weapon anyway. I'll take them out from far, far away. Actually, I would prefer explosives, anyway.

Anyone even tries to sling some red paint as they threatened me with in 1972 I will sling something back. Copper jacketed.

And I still regret not stuffing that peacenik brochure down that guy's throat next to the Pentagon escalator in 1990.

rwe,
I feel we'll use whatever means possible.
Like I said, 40 years of this anti American bull shit is enough.

This generation of protesters aren't your hippie flowerchildren. This bunch of nihilistic, Stalinist anarchists are truly Satan's spawn.

T'would be better to use silver bullets Gentlemen.

A part of me wishes for poetic justice, to see these protesters forced to their knees by a Zawrahiri wannabe...and their heads sawed clean off.

But that would be barbaric, and it is just wrong. So I stow the thought and hope that Americans see this trash for what it is. But is America awake anymore. I just dunno.

God help us.

First I had heard of this story was this morning watching Hannity and Colmes on AFN in the DFAC. The common sentiment expressed by my fellow diners was "Spit on me, MF. It will be the last thing you ever do."

This generation of warriors will not turn the other cheek.

If I do time for assault, so be it. A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do.

I steamed off a letter to my local fishwrap when they printed an AP article implying that Jane Fonda was called "Hanoi Jane" because some people assumed she opposed the troops and not just their mission.Same leftist BS they try to pass off today.
"We love the troops,we just hate the war"Yeah you love them so much you can't help but root for their defeat.
In the sixties,they chanted,
"Ho Ho Ho Chi Minh
The NLF is gonna win"

What is it now:

Osama Osama Osama Bin
The Jihadi pigs are gonna win

I agree with LL,these creeps are different than the 60's protesters.Back then they only really opposed the war while the draft was crankin'With the lottery in place most of the protesters moved on.These vermin on the barricades today are treasonous skunks and Jihadist enablers.

Did some overnight time upon my return from Nam because my buddy b-slapped a longhair in the airport for calling us baby killers. Slap away and I hope I'm on your jury.

Habu, I'm with you.

Tsk, tsk, tsk. Such obssessive, all-consuming hatred is Just So Sad!! Must be some kind of Derangement Syndrome, wouldn't you say? Interestingly, though, the story by Bubblehead Malkin doesn't say anything about spitting on a soldier, it's about someone spitting on the ground near a soldier. But I guess that's the same, isn't it? Cause we all know it's only the MSM that distorts facts to advance their own political agenda.

Oh no!! Habu is gonna shoot any hippies coming to his house to protest. Boy, I'll bet that must constitute a real public health hazard, I mean with all the tourists dying to see the palace that Habu lives in. Well, at least for the hobos crawling out of the Everglades looking for a good place to take a dump.

Maybe when the shrinks are treating your Derangement Syndrome, you can also raise the fact that no one gives a shit about this nonsense anymore. No one believes that liberals hate the troops; more and more veterans realize this war is the whim of warmongering freaks; and the Simpering Imbecile commands about as much respect as the North American Man-Boy Love Association.

But you just keep those guns loaded, and repeat to yourselves over and over, "I Am Somebody!!"

Legal,

Just slowly marching along with the anarchists into that bright future? Think UFPJ and the WWP are benign organizations "lookin out for American interests"? Are the Islamists some creation of a vast right wing conspiracy?

Treason runs deep. And some folks are just dupes, but traitors nonetheless.

Some of us are drawing lines in the sand. Ain't talk. We mean what we say. Believe it. There are consequences for irresponsible behavior.

Wretchard,

Come on, haven't you heard? Joshua Sparling is the Jamil Hussein (read the commentary) of the right!

BTW, for all o' you read the above with heavy sarcasm.

Wouldn't want to be the spitter when and if a picture of him in action emerges from the blogosphere.

"Scared spitless" sounds about right.

More and more I'm seeing a sense of hand-wringing anticipation and glee at the thought of perforating herds of moonbats at the same time we go after the Muslims after the next coming Jihad attack. I wonder if Jane and her happy hoarde of tinfoil hat-wearers realize how far they've pushed a large percentage of America towards a tipping point of seeing them as enemies, and not merely citizens with a different point of view.

The Darwinian equation would break down to: "all you need is love" moonbat spits on armed and trained warrior in public; who will survive?

A little caution. When I heard this I was really pissed, but reading the article makes me believe we don't know the details. Or who was "in the right".

And Michelle or Richard is wrong, the Vet was not spit on.

Later, as antiwar protesters passed where he and his group were standing, words were exchanged and one of the antiwar protestors spit at the ground near Mr. Sparling; he spit back.

We don't know what taunts were exchanged about relative levels of patriotism, the advisability of baby-killing, Bush the war-criminal, Fonda the Quisling, etc., etc.

When opposing high-charged ideologues meet, words are exchanged and they aren't complimentary. There are plenty of things that Sparlings group could have said that crossed the line, and vice-versa...leading to indirect "saliva tributes" for the lack of human merit on the other side.

And missing a foot does not automatically make someone always in the right in what they believe.

I don't excuse anyone directly spitting on someone that has not escalated a confrontation into true fighting words. I would happily spit on someone if provoked or fight - but the gun nuts early on the thread would face serious jail time if they used deadly force when they were in no danger - and the fantasy that "no jury would convict me if a shot a hippie who splashed me in fake blood", is a false hope.

I even approved strongly of the arrest of the coward Vietnam Vet who spat in Jane Fonda's face last year. Tackled when he did it and tried fleeing from one of her book signings. Hate her all you want, but no excuse for spitting or other physical actions on a 67-year old woman.

c4,

Yeah, I got carried away on Blogger Beer and used "spit on". After the moonbat came in & threw the comment about Josh being Jamil I read the story closer and sure enough, it was spitting on the ground nearby.

I struck the language and issued an update.

And yes, I too condemned the veteran who spat on Jane Fonda we are together on that one. That was not expression that was violence.

Rereading Michelle's account of the incident I see she doesn't use the word "on" but "at".

"she doesn't use the word "on" but "at"."

Yeah, and that changes the whole incident, doesn't it? Kind of like Ahmedinejad saying Israel should be "wiped off the map" is just a cartographical reference.

Sheesh.

Before we go to court, let's revisit the playground, or the alley, or wherever young men learn to fight.

The "gender" of the spitter is not reported. The fact that the soldier spit back strongly suggests that the spitter was male.

Any numbskull knows that spitting at or near your antagonist dramatically escalates the game. The soldier displayed remarkable control in only spitting back. In less public circumstances, I'd bet that there'd be a hospitalized protester today.

Senate hearing

[Senator] Mr. Hatch was repeatedly interrupted by a woman in the audience, who said that her son was a marine due to return soon to Iraq for his third tour of duty there. Mr. Bush’s plan calls for 4,000 additional marines to be deployed to Anbar province. “He can’t go back,” she said.


The media will never follow up to determine whether she really was the mother of a marine, and what her political back ground is, like if she is part of a group which deliberately plans interruptions like this.

There is a multi-million dollar anti-war campaign going on, as was reported in the newspapers, so it is likely this was planned. It's all part of a strategy to pretend that the country has turned against the war.

I also wonder why she was able to "repeatedly" interrupt. That's the advantage of this tactic though, that when the protestor gets thrown out, they just get more sympathy.

Wu Wei:

Funny thing about press treatment of hecklers.

When someone heckled John Howard during a recent visit to the U.S., he was 'being forced to confront anti-war sentiment'.

When a Falun Gong member heckled Hu Jintao during his visit to the U.S. the press went into paroxysms of hand-wringing about how we clumsey Americans could allow a foreign visitor to 'lose face' (sheesh) and wrote the heckler off as 'possibly mentally disturbed'.

You and I just don't get it: Heckling The Man is speaking truth to power. Not buying Dixie Chicks CDs is stifling dissent. We'll get the hang of it some day.

Spit on...spit at. Try spitting in the general direction of a police officer and you will find yourself cuffed and on the way to jail. Is any soldier, active or inactive, less of a public servant than any cop?

The groups that organize these protests are anti-American. Read about United for Peace and Justice and the World Workers Party. Both are communist organizations that seek to destroy the United States.

When you march, shout and spit under the banner of these organizations, you have crossed the line. You may have freedom of speech BUT you declare yourself an enemy of the Constitution of the United States.

The freedoms they use to protest, they would deny to others were they to gain power.

And there will always be a lawyer-whore to defend their rights while restraining patriots.

God help us.
