So anyone with at least half a functioning brain, which excludes most Democrat voters in the contiguous 48 states and just about everyone who has moved into Warwick in the past 10 years, knows that what the media reports in this country and what is actually taking place in Iraq and Afghanistan are two entirely different things.
I get this email the other day with a video in it and hadn’t gotten around to watch it until this morning. A while back, a Liberal Representative from PA named John Murtha made the mistake of actually acting on the bullshit they preach and proposed an immediate pullout of our forces from Iraq.
Republicans called him on it, put it to vote, and except for 3 Liberals (Murtha even voted against his own proposal) every single Representative who voted, voted against it.
That being said, the never ending propaganda from the left continues, and every once and awhile they make the mistake of having a free-thinker in the audience. That’s where Seargant Mark Seavey comes in. Guy is at a town-hall meeting on the War in Iraq and absolutely DECIMATED both Murtha and Moran. Best response Moran had was that Seavey didn’t have a question, was a statement, and then he moved on to another question.
I’ve mirrored the video here at tothemetal.net for your viewing pleasure. The extended entry has a transcript of the video. It was an absolute treat to see.
“Yes sir my name is Mark Seavey and I just want to thank you for coming up here. Until about a month ago I was Sgt Mark Seavey infantry squad leader, I returned from Afghanistan. My question to you, (applause)
“Like yourself I dropped out of college two years ago to volunteer to go to Afghanistan, and I went and I came back. If I didn’t have a herniated disk now I would volunteer to go to Iraq in a second with my troops, three of which have already volunteered to go to Iraq. I keep hearing you say how you talk to the troops and the troops are demoralized, and I really resent that characterization. (applause) The morale of the troops that I talk to is phenomenal, which is why my troops are volunteering to go back, despite the hardships they had to endure in Afghanistan.
“And Congressman Moran, 200 of your constituents just returned from Afghanistan. We never got a letter from you; we never got a visit from you. You didn’t come to our homecoming. The only thing we got from any of our elected officials was one letter from the governor of this state thanking us for our service in Iraq, when we were in Afghanistan. That’s reprehensible. I don’t know who you two are talking to but the morale of the troops is very high.”
“That wasn’t in the form of a question, it was in the form of a statement. But, uhh… let’s go over here.”
