But it is another thing altogether when you attack members of the United States Military who have served with honor, for registering their disgust against the Obama Regime's surrender to Islamofascist terrorists over deserter Bowe Bergdahl.
Yesterday, MSNBC's resident Obama butt-kisser F. Chuck Todd reported some officials in the Regime were accusing members of Bergdahl's unit who are critical of this terrorist swap of "swiftboating."
Swiftboating is a reference to how Hanoi John Kerry's shipmates threw a wrench into his 2004 makeover from a treasonous scumbag who used his military service to attack those still in the field to bonafide Vietnam war hero.
State Department official Marie Barf, who looks like she was a reject from the set of the 1980s movie Valley Girl, also attacked Bergdahl's squad mates, saying the deserter knew better than them.
Then on Twitter, another Regime official joined in on defending the deserter from his squadmates, (h/t Kristinn Taylor at FreeRepublic)
Brandon Friedman, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs for the Department of Housing and Urban Development posted a series of tweets Wednesday evening in which he speculated that Bergdahl deserted over bad leadership of his platoon and that is why his fellow soldiers were smearing him.I'd heard of Friedman via my friend Jonn Lilyea at This Ain't Hell, who gave Friedman the nickname "Beeker" after he'd attacked TAH's write up of Obama not attaending a MOH inaugural event. It's apparent five years later that "Beeker" will still do anything to lift the Kool-Aid buckets for Obama. Just like his fellow VoteVets partisan Jon "Grade A Douchebag" Soltz, "Beeker" attacked an American Legion post for hosting an event by Concerned Veterans for America.
"Here's the thing about Bergdahl and the Jump-to-Conclusions mats: What if his platoon was long on psychopaths and short on leadership? (1/5)"
" What if he grew disillusioned with what he saw, didn't trust his leadership, and walked off? Legal? No. Worthy of sympathy? Maybe. (2/5)"
" If that were the case, the soldiers in his platoon would have all the more reason to smear him publicly now. (3/5)"
" Given other examples, it's not out of the realm of possibility--and more reason to withhold judgment until after an investigation. (4/5)"
" I'm not a fan of such speculation, but this story could not be more unbalanced--with so many premature calls of "traitor." (5/5)"
Friedman's Wikipedia page says he is a decorated war veteran who served in Iraq and Afghanistan and is a veteran of the Democratic Party front group VoteVets. He joined the Obama administration in 2009 at the Veterans Administration. He left in 2012 and rejoined the administration in 2014 at HUD.
Then there's 9/11 Troofer (his name was later removed) Van Jones, who graduated as an anti-police rabble-rouser from the sewer of an Oakland, CA ghetto, to Obama's "Green Jobs" czar and now a host of CNN's Crossfire.
Now, I admit, there are important answers we have to answer here, but Sergeant Bergdahl isn't even out of the hospital yet and already the air waves are being filled mysteriously with former soldiers just trashing the guy. What is going on here? Well, it turns out that there are Republican operatives who are working behind the scenes to get some of those guys on television. This is an orchestrated smear campaign. The implication is that President Obama should have left a U.S. soldier to die, but if he had done that, the same Republicans would be attacking him for doing that, so the whole thing is completely outrageous.Let me remind you how Van Jones on 9/12/2001, held a cheerleading for the terrorists event in Oakland:
“It’s the bombs that the government has been dropping around the world that are now blowing up inside the U.S. borders....We’ve got something stronger than bombs, we have solidarity. That dream of revolutionary change is stronger than bombs.”
That's not all, Van Jones doesn't think the US needs to be a military superpower.
So this is the new strategy of the Obama Regime and the Democrats? Attack the honorable service of military members? That is not a winning strategy, especially after we've seen how they treat returning veterans.
But what else should we expect from the "Party of Treason." It's more proof of what we've seen in their defense of "Hanoi" John Kerry now Bergdahl. The only military members the Democrat Party, Obama, his Regime, all their spoksemouths and sycophants like Media Mutters for America seem to respect and glorify are the deserters, traitors and phony soldiers.
