So the little turds did their best to recreate the John Kerry theater in 1971 and tossed their medals at NATO yesterday. George sends us this link from MSNBC;
The protesters cheered the post 9/11-era veterans on, clapping and yelling, “give them back!”
“I choose human life over war,” Jerry Bordeleau shouted through a microphone, before tossing the medals onto the street.
Another man said he was representing deserters who can’t come back to the U.S. and threw many of their medals away.
Steven Acheson, an Army veteran who before the march said he had been waiting a long time for this moment, though he was also anxious about it, threw away his medals for the children of Iraq and Afghanistan.
“May they be able to forgive us for what we have done to them, may we begin to heal and may we live in peace from here till eternity,” he said.
So. looking back at the IVAW people we profiled last week, we had a phony Ranger, Steven Acheson who didn’t have much medals to toss, Aaron Hughes who was stationed in Kuwait, and a bunch of people who deserted to Canada, and this is for whom who we’re supposed to feel sympathy?
In fact according to some people who actually know Graham Crumpner, the phony Ranger, doubt he was even in the military at all. Of course, I can’t verify that at the moment because I can’t match him to an address. People are telling me he lives in Colorado, but there’s no record of him there.
So, at this point, I have to think that’s the case in the reenactment of the John Kerry Memorial Medal Toss Event. People who aren’t allowed in the United States and a phony Ranger. Phht! Who cares what they have to say.
ADDED: I know there’s a woman who kinda looks like Army Sergeant in the video, so I called her and asked her where she was and she says she wasn’t there, but there is someone who looks like Matthis, too (he’s not taking my calls) so I’m wondering if the IVAW is letting him back in the fold.
