Memorial Day: Recognize Military Sacrifice Not Politicians

last year

Memorial Day is the federal holiday that commemorates American men and women who died in military service to their country. So it may seem a bit incongruous – pursuant to same – that I suggest this Memorial Day we hold a wake for the living, in recognition of those who should suffer political deaths for their disservice to America.

It disgusts me to see avowed haters of our military such Obama, Hillary Clinton, and the Obama woman, using our fallen heroes as props and/or backdrops for political gain; even though they’ve made no pretense of their raw contempt for our military. Perhaps they think we have short memories or perhaps they don’t care what we think or both.

No American leader in history has done more to destroy our military and the morale of our military than Obama. Hillary hopes to continue in Obama’s footsteps pursuant to same, if she is able to avoid prison long enough to steal the election.

Brave men and women paid with their blood to make the world a safer more stable place. They didn’t die so Obama could travel the world apologizing to our former enemies for our sons and daughters dying to protect our way of life and to preserve theirs. They didn’t do it so that Obama could apologize to the Vietnamese government and accuse America of being racist and anti-human rights, while praising Vietnam for their human rights standing in front of a statue of Ho Chi Minh.

The Republicans have utterly failed in their responsibility to preserve the health and well-being of our veterans. Republicans have made a mockery of bringing Obama, Hillary Clinton, et al to justice for the murders of Tyrone Woods, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Ambassador Christopher Stevens in Benghazi.

Brave men and women paid in blood for the freedoms we have. Their families surrendered their loved ones for a better America. But today, groups like the ACLU would strip every remembrance of what these fallen heroes have accomplished from public view, because a cross or Bible verse commemorates their sacrifice. We’ve seen the likes of attorney Curtis Doebbler and former Attorney General Ramsey Clark defending pissoirs of humanity such as mass murderer Saddam Hussein. Clark, who blamed President Bush for Iraqis dying in war, and defended the man who gassed his own people – the man who committed atrocities that might well have made Ugandan infidel Idi Amin cringe.

There are soiled politicians like Dick Durbin, D-Ill., who compared our troops to Stalin, Pol Pot and Hitler. We witness those with questionable (indeed highly suspect) injuries, who use same to make gain. Those like John Kerry, D-Mass. now Secretary of State, viciously slander the memories of the good men and women who gave their lives for their country.

Military men and women gave their lives to make America the greatest English-speaking country in the history of civilization – yet contemptible Gollum’s like Harry Reid, D-Nev., dare to call legislation that mandates English as the official language of the United States of America, racist. One might ask Reid what the official language of Mexico is.

We see those on both sides of the aisle, and in the White House, pushing legislation that would reward illegal aliens for breaking the sovereign laws of our country. We see lawmakers and the White House argue for the rewarding of lawbreaking illegals who come from countries where legal immigrants are not permitted to hold office or even own certain properties.

I say all such actions and intent is tantamount to spitting on the grave of those who fought to define and defend America’s borders. Congress and the White House have forgotten who gave them their jobs. They smugly dare to tell us what we want, as if we are children or peons.

This is America, and the blood of many has been shed on foreign shores to keep ours secure. It is time that we stop rewarding feckless failures like Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan with reelection, and start punishing legislators for failing to act in our best interest. Acting in our best interest is not restricting legal products like cigarettes or stealing our property — it is honoring the memory of those who died that we might enjoy the fruits granted us under the Constitution.

This Memorial Day, I urge you to take notice of people like Obama, Kerry, Reid, Ryan, et al, who openly condemn the memory of our fallen heroes. I urge you to pay strict attention to who supports the bastardizing of our sovereign legitimacy.

I say, without exception, that we make them pay at the ballot boxes. Do not fear the lie that one or the other is better than the alternative – that fabrication demands an answer to the question: “How well-off are we with them now?”

This Memorial Day, as we honor our fallen military heroes, we should start a wake – a death watch if you will – counting the days until we can kick the betrayers out of office, not sparing them because they belong to the Elephant or the Donkey party. Our military didn’t sacrifice their lives for giant pachyderm or ass – they sacrificed their lives for our freedom.
