Posted again due to unpopular demand:
What I find interesting about the outrage is that no one has even mentioned Murtha’s words. You know. The ones big and bold at the top of the poster. I commented myself:
Stop acting all offended and stuff and take a moment to explain how it is that Murtha’s loud public condemnation of Marines for committing premeditated murder before any such determination has been made are at all defensible.
Spout on and on and on somewhere else about Kerry this and Kerry that and how Murtha was once a hero and blah blah blah.
Please explain your position on ignoring “innocent until proven guilty” and supporting political grandstanding at the expense of troops unconvicted (uncharged, even, so far) for anything.
Shut up about everything except the topic at hand: Tell Murdoc why he’s wrong to criticize Murtha’s actions.
Certainly, the poster is provocative. It’s obviously meant to be. And I don’t mind inflammatory comments as long as they’re on-topic.
So: Why is it that critics of Murtha bashers don’t want to talk about what it is that Murtha said? Why is it that critics of Murtha bashers have nothing to say about the public conviction of troops who haven’t even been charged as of this writing? Why is it that critics of Murtha bashers (and Kerry bashers, it seems) are always so keen to change the subject?
Come on, critics…don’t prove me right by straying off topic and ignoring my position, which is that Murtha was dead wrong to say what he said when he said it how he said it.
