Democrats Further Dishonor and Exploit our Troops on Memorial Day with Political Email
Email sent from the (un)Democratic National Committee | May 28, 2005 | Democrat National Committee, signed by Bob Fertik, President,

With Memorial Day only two days away, the Democratic party has again dishonored and exploited our troops in their callous Jihad to regain the political power the voters decidely took away from them and will continue to take away from them in elections.

Below is yet another Democrat party email exploiting our troops and Memorial Day (see their previous email signed by (former) Governor Howard Dean at:

Subject:  Honor Our Fallen Soldiers: Investigate Bush's Lies

Date:     May 28, 2005 12:00 PM

Demand a Congressional Investigation of Bush's Iraq War Lies

Dear Activist,

Monday is Memorial Day, the day we honor our fallen soldiers.

Our hearts are especially heavy this year because 1,653 soldiers have died in the past 26 months in Iraq.

Another 12,348 have been maimed, and tens of thousands are suffering from PTSD.

And things are only getting worse, not better: the majority of those killed (903) died in the 12 short months since Memorial Day 2004.

Our sadness would be diminished if we could say these brave young men and women died to defend America.

But that simply isn't true, because George W. Bush lied to us.

We now know there were no WMD's in Iraq in 2002. We also know there were no ties between Iraq and Al Qaeda or 9-11.

George Bush, Dick Cheney, Condi Rice, Colin Powell, Donald Rumsfeld, and countless others insisted there were. But they were lying - all of them.

On May 1, the Times of London finally exposed the truth. It came in the form of the minutes of a secret war council led by Tony Blair at the Prime Minister's office on Downing Street on July 23, 2002 - eight full months before Bush invaded Iraq. The head of British intelligence reported on his trip to Washington:

"Military action was now seen as inevitable. Bush wanted to remove Saddam, through military action, justified by the conjunction of terrorism and WMD. But the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy."

Read it carefully: Bush was determined to invade Iraq, and he was prepared to tell whatever lies he needed to tell to scare Americans into war.

This "smoking gun" caused a firestorm in the British media. Here in the U.S., the media barely reported it. Why? Because our media enthusiastically helped Bush tell his lies. And they want to make sure Americans never learn the truth.

Today, and a powerful coalition of progressive allies set out to break the media's silence and tell Americans the truth.

We are building a massive grassroots movement to support an historic letter by Constitutional scholar John Bonifaz, who is urging Congress to pass a "Resolution of Inquiry" directing the House Judiciary Committee to launch a formal investigation into whether sufficient grounds exist for the House to impeach George W. Bush.*

Of course, passing this Resolution will require a majority in the House, which is firmly controlled by Tom DeLay and his right-wing Republican allies.

DeLay is a formidable obstacle. But we simply cannot let him stand in the way of the truth after so many young Americans have died.

Please join me in urging your Representative to support this Resolution of Inquiry about Iraq.

And if you can, please help us build the largest grassroots movement in history by contributing to

1,653 brave young Americans will be mourned by their families this Memorial Day.

It is time to hold George Bush accountable for the soldiers who died because of his lies.

Bob Fertik, President

This additional over-the-top (chutzpah-squared) email demonstrates how the Democratic party officials and activists are behaving like drug addicts going through withdrawal pains after their primary drug, political power, has been taken away from them by the voters after they abused it. As we know, many high-profile Democrats have other addictions as well.

Another Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy?

Hillary Clinton's claims during the 1990's that there was a "vast right-wing conspiracy" was unbelievably funny at that time. This claim is even more funny today.

These dangerous and treasonous Democrats are so far left (i.e., Socialists and Communists) they may actually believe their paranoid and delusional claims that all the dishonest left-wing Democrat party propoganda organs in the U.S., including the Los Angeles Times, New York Times, Time and Newsweek magazines, and the CBS, NBC, ABC, and CNN news organizations, are right-wing conspiracies covering up their old and stale claims of a President Bush scandal.

The primary thing these news organizations are covering up is their own fraud and corruption in support of the Democratic party.

It may appear that the Democrats are being undemocratic and refuse to accept the election results. It may also appear that the Democrats can't get over it and "move on" when they lose - that they continue to be Sore Losermen and girly men. This is true, however, the fact is that the Democrats campaign every day of every year, rather than waiting until just before the next election. Their extremist brand of politics and governance is their religion, and they worship and practice their deviant religion every day.

Those who support freedom and self-governance must oppose these Dangerous Democrats on an ongoing basis.

Whois is a liar, arrogant, and stupid?

The Democrats are continuing their old pre- and post-election mantra against President Bush, trying to falsely label him as a "lier", as being "arrogant", and as being "stupid", all characteristics that are more strongly associated with the Democratic party. After all, communism has murdered tens of millions of innocent people, and only stupid people would want to give communism another chance!

This fits the pattern where Socialist and Marxist Democrats accuse their opponents of being and doing those things that they themselves are and do.

To these Democrats, good is evil and evil is good. They have more compassion for violent criminals than for violent crime victims. They are upside-down and inside-out.

Also, it is clear that these Democrats are still trying to excuse themselves for supporting President Bill Clinton, a pathalogical lier who lied in court under penalty of pergury and was impeached for that crime.

Saving or Costing Lives?

If these dangerous and arrogant Socialist and Communist Democrats really wanted to save lives, they woud support real and effective criminal justice reforms and stop supporting criminals and policies that cost thousands of additioal lives each year to violent cimre. They would stop supporting dangerous and irresponsible gun control laws that increase violent crime, cost thousands of lives each year, and endanger everyone including those who choose not to own firearms. They would stop writing laws to create and expand helpless victim zones. They would would support and encourage firearm ownership, especially for women, given the scientific research which shows that defense with a firearm is safer and more effective than any other method, including nonresistance.

If these dangerous Democrats were in power before World War II and a Republican were president, they would be saying Hitler was a great guy, or at least wasn't that bad after all. the Japanese sneak attack at Pearl Harbor they would claim that the U.S. must have done something wrong to deserve to be hated by Japan. They would claim that we should be more like Japan so they will like us and not want to kill us. They would propose using appeasement and conflict resolution techniques get Japan to stop attacking us.

Protecting or Destroying Our Constitution?

If these dangerous and arrogant Socialist and Communist Democrats wanted to protect our Constitution, they would not:
  1. Work feverishly to violate the natural right of nonviolent citizens to self-defense and firearms ownership as recognized by the Second Amendment of the Constitution;

  2. Support excessive tax rates and violation of property rights that violate our principles and traditions of freedom;

  3. Violate our Constitution and corrupt the judiciary branch of government by using leftist activist judges, who are appointed and not elected, to legislate and rewrite the Constitution from the bench, in violation of Article 5 of the Constitution.

    Article 5 specifies the only Constitutional, lawful, and legitimate method of rewriting the Constitution - through the long and difficult amendment process. The Democrats claim our Constitution is a "living document" that they can reinterpret however they please and in ways that render it meaningless. Under Democrat rule, our Constitution is a dead document.

  4. Threaten a filibuster to require 60 out of 100 Senate votes to "advise and consent" on President Bush's judicial appointments. The Constitution clearly specifies 51 votes which may include the Vice President's vote to break a tie. In fact, it is clear that Senate votes are to be based on a simple majority unless otherwise specified in the Constitution by the fact that the Constitution specifies that the Vice President may cast a vote only to break a tie.

What was the name of the military operation in Iraq? Operation get WMDs? No, of course not. Chutzpah-squared is right.
