We Get Letters!

The deceptive efforts of Media Matters finally duped one of their gullible readers to respond. This gem comes from

Subject: You Are a TRAITOR

I hope you chickenhawk cowards do try to revolt against our government. Please try it. I want to be the first in line to shoot the traitors of America. You think people are afraid of you??? You are a complete coward Owens. I hope you rot in f*cking hell you piece of sh*t TRAITOR. This veteran will defend his country to the end against traitorous pukes like you.

Eloquent, don't you think?

I responded:


The overwhelming majority of veterans I've talked to honor their oath to the Constitution, and look on the current elitists (Democrat and Republican) with sadness, for they know that these elitists and their continual power grabs represent the domestic enemies that our Founding Fathers and even later day Presidents have warned us as being the greatest threats to our republic.

I regret that conflict may be a possibility if the electoral process cannot purge the sickness from the system.

You, apparently, relish the thought of killing your fellow citizens, just as you misunderstand your oath and who the traitors to this republic actually are.

Somehow, I'm less than impressed.

Anonymous threats are easy to make on the Internet. Coming up with a compelling intellectual argument defending the attempts of the ruling class to usurp our rights is far more difficult.

Call me cynical, but I don't think 'Brian' (if that's his real name) is a veteran. It's certainly true that when lefties were tossing around the 'chickenhawk' slur during the run-up to the liberation of Iraq, it was never veterans who used the term.

Which reminds me: it's not an original idea, but it needs to be said. Remember all the lefties who insisted that Iraq was the wrong war and Afghanistan was the right war, and called righties 'chickenhawks' if they didn't volunteer to serve in Iraq, even when they weren't eligible? (I was told more than one once that I was morally obligated to lie about my age, pretend to be 8-10 years younger than I was, and enlist to serve in Iraq, or else shut up.) Anyway, shouldn't all those people be joining the Army or Marine Corps right about now? The 'right war', now run by the right President, needs them.

Two questions: Do you have a weapon or three? Do you know how to use it?

Dr. Weevil, all I can say is that Markos "Screw them" Zuniga is a veteran. Blue Falcons become veterans too.

Dear Brian,

This veteran will be waiting for you. See you on the battlefield mother f*cker.

This issue is like the Number #1 fear among many of us Expat Americans. The majority of us are ALL former military, primarily SpecOps and such other milspecialties, and see/read from 'outside influences of the "Mass Media"... to say we have an "Outsider/Insider point of view" is an understatement.

'De Oppresso Libre' or 'To Free the Oppressed' is the motto on the Special Forces Crest... Most of the current and retired SF operators I know are now in a moral/mental conundrum, as they can SEE both the current and 'trending' oppression in our own Government, and yet, b/c of the military's binding to the civilian authorities, the question becomes one of "When does the civilian leadership become defined as 'the enemy?'" as stated in the US Armed Forces Oath of Enlistment: "I, (NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God."

The question becomes: When does it become viable that the President and those of his 'cabal' become the enemy?

Myself, I think we all know that answer there...

Wow....I just told a person last night that there would be no civil war, but that the electoral process was our hope....It appears( never feel comfortable using relative scientific meanderings) that the left would love for there to be a civilian uprising...I think that would be so they could make their cowards call for the UN to step in to help put us down.....the electoral process is looking real good right now.....soo great big BWA to the craaaazy left.....But if need be; should the curtain call come in, I will be happy to take up arms against this dispicable atrocity we call a government.....

A veteran, huh? He left off "concerned Christian conservative." He also should have claimed to be a teabag- uh, a tea partier and made some racist remarks.

But heck with it, if he wasn't stupid he wouldn't be an anonymous troll.

I think that I've been called a Chickenhawk by some deranged Lib on these forums too. In the mind of a Lib it's Infantry Marine in Iraq = Chickenhawk; Pining for murder of all Republicans and servicemen = Patriot.

It's like up = down with these people.

That nastygram you received was perfect. Thanks for posting it. Libs love murder. It's good to rub it in their faces until they wise up. Keeps em from forgetting.

How does one even have a conversation with such a person?

Posted by: brando at August 4, 2010 04:23 PM

brando, you're kidding, right? How much conversation can you have with the guy who's throwing you through a window, then photographing the bloody mess so we know what it is to live in fear?

The worst day in these clowns' lives will be the one they start the revolution.

When Southerners had finally had all they could take from an oppressive and abusive government they formally drew up papers and legally withdrew from the Union. Yes the South did fire the first shots of the war at Fort Sumter only when the Union troops refused to leave peacefully. But also it is noted no one was killed in that attack. It was meant to get their attention. It did! That was the beginning of the War of Northern Aggression. American by birth, Union by Force. I used to never feel that way. In the last few years I've started having a hard time with the way this country is run and with the few that are running it. It's not hard to see things are getting ugly and more and more people are becoming angry with whats going on in DC. Growing up in Florida I have met many people from Mass. I have yet to meet one that would admit to voting for Ted Kennedy. Imagine that.

Lest we forget, Stalin, Hitler, and Che wanted to help the little guy, unless your in their way.

It's like Gerard V. said "...there are some lies that lodge so deep in the hopes of man that they can never be killed no matter how many are executed to make the lie true."

Imho, unless the marxist-left collapses under it's own weight, & by extension their plans, within the US & loses it's fascist grip on key public & private institutions, then the only we are going to be wondering someday in the future is. . .

. . . is that Pinochet's HUMVEE I hear from my front-porch?

Gitmo would certainly get some new guests, for sure.

Everyone should realize that Libtards are predominantly unarmed peasants that look to their mommy-state to protect them. Conservatives are predominantly well-armed, individualists that look to themselves and their God to take care of them. The last thing any tofu-eating, marxist-loving libtard wants is to face his neighbors in mass. Hopefully, that won't happen but if you think US 2010 looks anything like US 1860 you are smoking crack.The "blue" north and west would not last the first round with the "red" states. Just the licensed hunters in Texas would constitute the 4th largest "standing" army in the world.

Talk Big Libtards,...while you snibble under your mommy-states skirt for protection.

I wonder how Brian feels about this President taking the Taliban and Hamas off their list of terrorist organizations?
That should put them back on the "fly-list".

Also, next time he goes through the airport scanners he might note that the Muslims next to him are walking right through without beng scanned because, to them, it is "haram".
It's haram to me to when I think of my grand daughter being scanned to reveal her nudity to those prevert Muslim men.

Perhaps Brian is a frustrated Muslim who wants the Constitution torn down and replaced with shari'ah law? He may get his wish soon enough if this President is allowed to serve out his term.
Impeach the President for treason!
