I would like very much to HEAR a little out cry from the citizens of his state. DO THEY agree with this BS. If not, WHEN will the RECALL election be held?

Need to thank the Dumocrat Machine in Illinois. Just like no one in New York voted for Hillary, no one voted in Illinois for Dick Dirtbag.

Somehow they wind up in Washington, and on Intelligence Committees.

Where is the Republican response?? What about his democratic constituents. Is that what they stand for? What about the good people of Illinois throwing this bastard out by a recall? What about us FReepers making him out target & never relenting on it until he is gone? How about independents in Illinois standing up to him? HELLO! Is there anyone going to stop this man. How about the Justice Dept going after things he said months ago about classified information? To the administration where are you? Oh I forgot. This is the "Two-Party Cartel".

I swear to God... If I was a Republican Senator, I'd be jumping over tables to get at this pri_k

I know what you mean.  I haven't been this seeing-red mad since ... well, since the last time our elected traitors opened their mouths.

The military should be at his office door right now and escort him to prison.  No trials, no courts, no lwayers ... just a short prison trip and then the noose.

Durbin fits in with the long tradition of Copperhead Democrats:

http://www.worldhistory.com/wiki/C/Copperheads-(politics).htm

Copperheads (politics)
Copperheads (politics) in the news

Warning: there is some racist (the " N-word") language in this article. It is simply the language that was used during the American Civil War.

The Copperheads were a group of Northern Democrats who opposed the American Civil War, wanting an immediate peace settlement with the Confederates. They were also called Peace Democrats.

The most famous Copperhead was Clement L. Vallandigham, who was a serious thorn in President Lincoln's side.
More on the Copperhead agenda

They opposed emancipation of American slaves, forming groups to persuade Union soldiers to desert, and helped Confederate prisoners of war escape. The name Copperheads was given to them by Republicans and may have derived from the venomous snake (the Copperhead) that strikes without warning or may have been a reference to the copper liberty-head coins which many wore as badges.

Copperheads opposed turning the Civil war into a total war to destroy the South and restore the Union. They sometimes met with Confederates, aiming at restoring peace.
How they were treated in the Union

As war opponents, they were suspected of disloyalty, Lincoln often having them arrested. In summer 1864, Ulysses S. Grant was bogged down in the Siege of Petersburg and William Tecumseh Sherman getting nowhere in Georgia. At this sad moment for the Union, during midterm election in Lincoln's home state of Kentucky, Lincoln suspended habeas corpus and arresting every Democrat he could round up. The Democrats still swept the July 1864 election in Kentucky.

The Confederates loved the Copperheads and encouraged their activities whenever possible.
Areas of strength

The Copperheads were strongest in Irish Catholic groups (poor Catholics were often anti-war, expecting to lose jobs to newly-freed slaves) in the eastern Pennsylvania coal country, and German Catholic areas of Wisconsin. They were also strong in border areas. They sometimes carried signs reading things such as "The Constitution As It Is, The Union As It Was," or, more offensively, "We won't fight to free the nigger."

Every Union defeat such as the Battle of Chancellorsville led to louder calls from the Copperheads — and given the inept Union leadership through much of the war, they had ample ammunition.
The decline of the Copperheads

After the spectacular victory at the Battle of Atlanta in Fall, 1864, and the end in sight of Grant's dug-in siege of Petersburg, the Copperheads declined in influence.

His speech on the floor is Constitutionally protected, so he can make all the aid-and-comfort statements he wants to on the floor, and nothing can legally happen to him.

He can be reprimanded by his fellow senators for those remarks.

never happen unless they arrange a tit-for-tat with Santorum's remarks.
I'm with Rush, Durbin has told the truth about what he and better than 70% of the current Democrats in Congress really think about our U.S. military and the soveirgnty of our country.
No apology is needed from him, what is needed is resignation.

'US Senator Dick Durbin on Wednesday refused to apologise for comments he made on the Senate floor referring to Nazis, Soviet gulags and a "mad regime" like Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge in Cambodia.'

This is not only treasonous slander against our own troops, but Senator Dickweed is spitting on the mass graves of those who went to real gulags.

Here is a proposal: any Senator who doesn't like Gitmo can participate in an 'adopt-a-terrorist' program, whereby a group of the Gitmo detainees can be be housed in said Senator's home state.

In WWII, if a 'combatent' was caught out of uniform they were summarily executed. A good example was during the battle of the bulge where Nazis wore GI uniforms to misdirect traffic. When captured they were just lined up and shot. Wonder if Senator Dickweed will pass a resolution calling for an apology to Nazi victims of GI atrocities (I mean, a bullet in the head? No free copies of Mien Kampf, no bratwurst, no ACLU lawyers?)

"Might as well take the "treason" laws off the books. It's not like anyone will be tried for it ever again. If DOJ went after Durbin, the ACLU, the MSM, the Dem party, and half of our "allies" would be howling about free speech restrictions, and tyranny by the majority."

I think it is officially off the books now. And the DOJ NEEDS to go after the dick and make an example of him. And let the rats, aclu, and msm howl about it. It will wake up and p*ss off a lot more people who haven't heard about this yet. And as far as our "allies" go, I really don't give a crap what they think.

This is what I mean about the pubbies in CONgress. They really have no intense agenda. Just suck the teat of the American taxpayers. I hope next election that the word COMPASSIONATE never comes up because that is the last thing we need as a president. Also change the word CONSERVATIVE to mean cutting government spending.

It will take the Right of all stripes to put pressure on Frist and the GOP to chastise Durbin. Then we must blast him with calls and emails or faxes. Then, letters to the editors of the MSM. This is necessary since the MSM will NOT cover Durbin's treachery. He reminds me of Lord Hee Haw and Tokyo Rose during WWII. Call Talk Radio. Keep the buzz going since most people will never hear of his anti-military remarks . The media , we all know will circle the wagons to protect one of their own. Demand that he resign. I did.

Doesn't Daley have a son in the military, does he support this incitement against our sons and daughters on the floor of our United States Senate?

Have the Chicago media expressed their outrage, and informed their citizens about this dangerous Senator, and his party?

'fraid not, maybe you or I or most Freepers would, but all Dickie boy would have to do is say something along the lines of "Are you questioning my patriotism?" and then the spineless Republican would cower and back down and instead of justifiably continuing to attack DICK he/she would not only spend their time claiming they are not questioning his patriotism would actually be thanking Dick for his service.

See any outraged GOP polititions lately ? Me neither. Nobody is held accountable in the Senate. Can't rock the boat and upset the country club. During war, those who are patriots should defend this country against those who would weaken us. The words of Durbin and others should be sharply rebuked. But the game goes on. When citizens seem to be the only ones furious this will continue. Others are afraid to call it what it is....selling out America. WHY ?

We've spent BILLIONS securing the borders in Korea, Afghanistan and Iraq and we leave our own FRONT & BACK DOORS WIDE OPEN!!!

They've had almost four friggin' years to secure the borders, deport the MILLIONS of illegals in this country and they have accomplished NADA, ZIP, ZERO!

No wonder the Democrats use the jackass as their standard.
It really is the party of horses axxes and jackaxxes. Every time they open their mouths you want to Heehaw!

These people want to embarrass the administration. It doesn't matter to them that they give comfort to an enemy and pay lip service to supporting our troops. Somebody should stand up in the Senate and call him to task. The Republicans don't seem to have the stomach to take them on. They're afraid that they are losing support because of the casualties. The hell with what the rest of the world thinks. Those people if released would try to kill us again.

The people in Illinois should be ashamed that they elected this piece of crap to the senate.
I'd like to inundate the sucker's e-mail.
