How some on the left "support our troops"...

Think about the Seattle area -- Bainbridge Island to be exact -- and you think scenic views and liberal-minded tolerance.

At least the killer views are still there.

The bucolic island's deep reputation for civility got a gut check this week during the annual Grand Old Fourth of July celebration.

That's when Jason Gilson, a 23-year-old military veteran who served in Iraq, marched in the local event. He wore his medals with pride and carried a sign that said "Veterans for Bush."

Walking the parade route with his mom, younger siblings and politically conservative friends, Jason heard words from the crowd that felt like a thousand daggers to the heart.

"Baby killer!"

"Murderer!"

"Boooo!"

To understand why the reaction of strangers hurt so much, you must read what the young man had written in a letter from Iraq before he was disabled in an ambush:
Read the whole thing...

  • Yeah, Sonic, I read this. Disgusting. Hard to believe my neighbors are capable of this. What got me most was the clown who said they were mistreating a soldier this way to show their dissatifaction to Bush.

    Kind of like the terrorists killed 3000 innocent Americans to show their dissatisfaction over US policy.

    The myth that those on the left "support the troops" is now out of the bag. They don't; never have. They see the troops as the arm of the imperialist Bush, and a bloodied one at that.

    I'm going to write about this later in my blog. Suffice to say now, Seattle and its burbs have lost their collective mind.
