Yesterday, (Jim) Moran DEFENDED his outrageous and insulting statements, saying that he was talking about public services that specifically target Virginia, “a civic association, (parent-teacher association), or a non-profit charitable group” as he listed the different groups he considered “public servants”.These kinds of statements are par for the course for Jim Moron. He's also made various anti-Semitic statements, was listed as an invited guest at a fundraiser earlier this year for the Falls Church mosque formerly led by Anwar al Awlaki, and involved in numerous assaults, as well as an outburst towards a Catholic priest after Mass.
Not to take anything away from PTAs and charitable organizations but you’ll agree with us when we say that defending our country from enemies like Al Qaeda and The Taliban is much more a vital public service that benefits all Americans (including Virginians) than a neighborhood watch or Rotary Club that organizes a public park cleanup.
We applaud those organizations, but it’s nothing like what our troops do for us, safeguarding our freedoms and keeping us safe from those that would do us harm! Jim Moran is saying that serving on the PTA is more of a "public service" than serving in Afghanistan!
...Patrick Murray, the immediate target of Moran’s attacks, defended himself and his fellow veterans, saying "This kind of disrespect to our service members not only offends me, but is insensitive to the sacrifices made by our dedicated military families as well."
Colonel Patrick Murray is a 24 year Army Veteran who comes from a military family. His father served in WWII before Patrick joined the ROTC program in college. After graduating he became an officer in the Army and went on to serve in Bosnia, Kosovo, Iraq and many other places. He served in Iraq as part of The Surge that changed the course of the war there, and in doing so, the course of history.
Jim Moron is an embarrassment to Northern Virginia and the United States. He has to go.
