Durbin refuses to apologize for Guantanamo Bay comments (Senator Treason's Boundless Arrogance)
KWQC-TV ^ | 06/16/05

Posted on 06/16/2005 9:49:10 AM PDT by MikeA

CHICAGO Illinois Senator Dick Durbin says he won't apologize for comments comparing American interrogators at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to Nazis and Soviet gulags.

News of the Democrat's comparison created a buzz around the Internet today, fueled by sound bites of yesterday's Senate floor speech on radio talk shows. By this afternoon, Illinois Republican Party Chairman Andy McKenna asked Durbin to apologize.

Durbin says the Bush administration should apologize for abandoning the Geneva Conventions.

Human-rights activist groups and some lawmakers -- mostly Democrats -- want Bush to close the prison.

But administration officials say some of the people who have been detained at Guantanamo later return to fight against the United States.

The utter irresponsibility and brazen sedition of the Democratic party, all in the service of their desire to attack this president and damage his public standing is nothing less than astonishing. It was bad enough when they emboldened the terrorists in Iraq with their unnecessarily partisan, divisive rhetoric on the war. But now that they're willing even to play into Al Qaeda's hands and to put gasoline on their fire, while slandering our men and women in a tough situation at Gitmo and demoralizing them, makes the Democratic leaders an enemy to this nation. No more accomodation with these people. No more compromise. It is war. This evil political party has no set itself at odds against the people of the United States and its effort to defeat Al Qaeda.

And wake up Illinois from your stupor! Stop electing demagogues like Durbin! CALL HIS OFFICE AND SHAME THIS PUKE!!!

Senator Durbin,

As one who was held in a North Vietnamese Prison for nearly seven
years and whose definition of torture and bad treatment is somewhat
at variance with yours, I deplore your senseless comments about
alleged "barbaric treatment" at our terrorist detention facility at
Guantanamo.

Your remarks comparing Guantanamo to the regimes of Stalin, Hitler
and Pol Pot are outrageous. I tried to think of why a rational human
being could make such an outlandish statement but I keep coming up
short. I thought I'd seen it all when Howard Dean performed his
infamous scream in Iowa but your diatribe yesterday eclipsed Dean's
moment of Hannibal Lecter lunacy. And your moment of pique will be
infinitely more damaging to members of our Armed Forces serving in
harm's way.

I noted, when searching for your contact information, that the first
item Google came up with was al Jazeera's joy at your comments. You,
sir, for having aided and abetted the enemy in time of war, have been
relegated in my mind to the status of Jane Fonda and your colleague,
John Kerry as contemptible traitors.

I hope not too many of our valiant members of the Armed Forces have
to suffer for your stupid comments. Shame on you.

This is copied to to the Chicago Tribune's Letters Editor. It is
blindcopied to my family members from Illinois and to several
military blog groups to which I subscribe.

Sincerely,
Paul E. Galanti
Commander, U.S. Navy (Ret.)

Hah. Just the issuance of a refusal to apologize means Durbin is feeling the heat. Democrats have played fast and loose with their Nazi rhetoric for too long. WE ARE MAD AS HELL AND WE ARE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANY LONGER!

Keep up the faxes and emails!!! Call your local radio shows!

Durbin's a pig. He shouldn't apologize; the fad of apologizing is crap. It means nothing. There's no sacrifice in merely apologizing. A real apology should come at a price...that's the only way it becomes meaningful. Durbin, you pig, if you're really sorry then resign. But you won't....because you're a pig.

Fifth-columnist Durbin is pulling the "a good offense is a good defense" bit. This is not surprising because he's an ongoing punk thug trained in Daley machine street mafia techniques.

However, Richie Daley does have SOME patriotism in him. So maybe he'll arrange for a horse's head to appear in traitor Durbin's bed some morning soon.

Thank you for your service, commander. It is folks like you that created what Ronald Reagan described as "the shining city on the hill".

It is folks like you that sacrificed so much to create this extra-ordinary country, that immigrants like myself feel are so blessed and privileged to be allowed to call home.

Mental midgets like Sen Durbin belittle your sacrifice. They disgust me.

BEST COMEBACK EVER

A Soldier tells about an incident in the grocery store he stopped at yesterday, on his way home from the base.

He said that ahead of several people in front of him stood a woman dressed in a burkha. He said when she got to the cashier she loudly remarked about the US flag lapel pin the cashier wore on her smock.

The cashier reached up and touched the pin, and said proudly, "yes, I always wear it and I probably always will."

The woman in the burkha then asked the cashier when she was going to stop bombing her countrymen, explaining that she was Iraqi.

A gentleman standing behind the soldier stepped forward, putting his arm around his shoulders, and nodding towards the soldier, said in a calm and gentle voice to the Iraqi woman: "Lady, hundreds of thousands of men and women like this young man have fought and died so that YOU could stand here, in MY country and accuse a check-out cashier of bombing YOUR countrymen.

It is my belief that had you been this outspoken in YOUR own country, we wouldn't need to be there today. But, hey, if you have now learned how to speak out so loudly and clearly, I'll gladly buy you a ticket and pay your way back to Iraq so you can straighten out the mess in YOUR country that you are obviously here in MY country to avoid."

Everyone within hearing distance cheered.

Pass this on to all your proud Americans

Commander:

Bravo Zulu!

Here is mine:

Senator Richard Durbin 332 Dirksen Senate Bldg.
Washington, DC 20510
June 16, 2005 Dear Sen. Durbin:
I find your remarks, in which you equated American servicemen guarding terrorists at Guantanamo Bay to Nazi SS death camp troops and genocidal Khmer Rouge of Pol Pot’s Cambodian regime, beyond offensive; they are palpably despicable!
I know that many of your Illinois constituency are currently serving their country and proudly wearing the uniform of their service branches, so I am curious about how many of them would feel the same way that I, a former Navy man and Vietnam veteran, do about the stinging insult to those of us who have served our country. I personally have a good friend from Decatur (who incidentally supported you in past elections) and he, a retired master chief petty officer is as offended as I am about the slap you dealt yesterday on the Senate Floor to our uniformed men and women. No doubt you will be hearing from him as well as Illinoisans of Jewish descent that actually survived the hell of REAL Nazi death camps.
I note by your biographical information that you have no military background, only that of a career politician and trial lawyer, so it is reasonably understandable that you are ignorant of the camaraderie, esprit de corps, and other factors vitally required to keep morale of our military high so that it functions well and less will die. But only a complete idiot or fool would compare the actions of well-trained Navy and Marine Corps prison guards to Nazis, Soviet gulag guards or Pol Pot’s Cambodian killers.
You, sir, are a disgrace to the United States Senate!
Enraged and disgusted,

Thank you for your service...

Let's not forget the Senior Embarrassment from Massachusetts:

Kennedy Joins Durbin on Iraq Amendment

Washington, DC. APRIL 14, 2005 -- Today Senators Kennedy, Durbin, Levin and Byrd offered an amendment to the funding bill for the war in Iraq that would impose new reporting requirements on the progress of the war. If passed, the measure would require the Bush Administration to provide specifics on progress with training Iraqi security forces and estimates of American troop levels in 6, 12, and 18 months. The amendment holds the President accountable for making sure that the American people — and our soldiers – know the impact of training Iraqis and our ability to hand complete responsibility for security over to Iraqis.

The Senate is currently debating an appropriations bill that would provide an additional $81 billion, primarily for our ongoing war effort in Iraq. This funding will bring the total U.S. bill for the war in Iraq to $192 billion –and still counting. If passed, Senator Durbin’s amendment would ensure that future policy in Iraq is based on the facts.

“We all hope for the best in Iraq. We all want democracy to take root firmly and irrevocably. We need to train the Iraqis for the stability of Iraq. But we also need to train them because our current level of deployment is not sustainable. Our military has been stretched to the breaking point, with threats in other parts of the world ever-present, Our men and women in uniform, and the American people deserve to know that the President has a strategy for success. ” Senator Kennedy said. Specifically, the amendment requires a report within 60 days (and every 90 days thereafter) assessing the extent to which funding appropriated by this Act will be used to train and equip capable and effectively-led Iraqi security services and promote stability and security in Iraq. It contains a number of specific criteria measuring progress in training and equipping military and police forces and estimating projected Iraqi training progress and needed American force levels in 2005 and 2006.

In a March 14, 2005 report on Rebuilding Iraq, the GAO found that “U.S. government agencies do not report reliable data on the extent to which Iraqi security forces are trained and equipped.” The report also states that “without reliable reporting data, a more capable Iraqi force, and stronger Iraqi leadership, the Department of Defense faces difficulties in implementing its strategy to draw down U.S. forces from Iraq.”

Here's an idea: A Senate resolution apologizing to the military for Durbin's remarks. Don't discount it out of hand, but think about it.

Who would vote against it? It's not a censure resolution against Durbin, but an apology TO our military. It could be way more powerful than a censure resolution, because it would possibly be near unanimous.

Then we get a censure movement under steam on the heels of the 1st resolution.

The left constantly compares the war on terror to Vietnam, and it is. The liberals and the MSM are using their same exact disgusting Vietnam strategy and tactics as they employed during that conflict

The enemy is being denied success in the field, but the domestic leftist fifth columnists are working to ensure their victory by undermining America's will to fight.

We are now engaged in a war on two fronts, the vast majority of us cannot confront the armed terrorists on the field of battle, but we most certainly can confront the enemy here at home.

We can no longer accept the passive inaction of the moral high ground, we are fighting enemies without conscience or scruples at home and abroad. We need to use the left's own play book of massive demonstrations. If we cannot arouse the general public to rise up in protest, then even small protests must become extremely agitated, This to include, civil disobedience, disruptions of any and all leftist public gatherings, stake out the usual suspects homes and offices, get directly into their faces at every opportunity.

The MSM, regardless of their politically proclivities, loves the visuals of conflict and confrontations. Use the MSM to our own ends with the idea there is no such thing as bad publicity. We must make, and then keep the story of left wing politician's and their minion's perfidies front and center on the 6 o'clock news, day after day, day after day, adnauseam.

Of course, if the MSM were objective they would hound Durbin with the plain fact that these prisoners are not covered under the Geneva Convention. And when these poor folks make a political point by hanging their prisoners from bridges or beheading them on camera our kindness is understandably challenged.

It is time for the CITIZENS of Illinois to recall this disgrace to public service because his "old boys club" fellow senators on both sides of will not impeach him. Remember,it was "Leaky" Leahy who compromised 2 intelligence operations in 1985 & 1986 with his big mouth resulting in the deaths of CIA operatives. The Senate, instead of impeaching this loser, moved him from the intelligence committee to the judiciary committee so he could do even more damge to this country - which he has done.Unless the citizens of Illinois & the U.S. put the heat on these poltroons in Congress thru recall or the normal election cycle, they will remain in office. Durbin has committed sedition & treason. Leahy committed sedition & treason. The Clintons committed sedition, treason , perjury, and who knows what else. Sandy "Burglar" steals top secret documents (part of the Clinton cabal) and gets away with it.They ALL get away with it while we weep & gnash our teeth while paying for their lavish lifestyles.
While the Democrats commit their despicable acts , hiding behind freedom of speech & dissent, Republicans in Congress act just like the "peaceful" Muslims who say nothing while their radical brothers murder in the name of the "religion of peace".Where is the outcry? Are there no men or women of in integrity or backbone left in Washington D.C.? It is up to us pilgrims - we have to sweep these self serving, pompous asses out of office or we will lose our country.

Mebbe one of the attorneys Clinton could draft a standard form apology for use by any Democrat uttering public statements, something like:

OK, I opened my pie-hole again and slandered my country, at whose teat I suckle. I'm sorry. It won't happen again. Today.

Illinois Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin compared U.S. troops to Hitler's concentration camp guards on Tuesday, saying that the way American soldiers treated terrorists at the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo Bay reminded him of the Nazis. Citing FBI accounts of terrorist detainees forced to go without heat or air conditioning, Durbin told the Senate: "If I read this to you and did not tell you that it was an FBI agent describing what Americans had done to prisoners in their control, you would most certainly believe this must have been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime - Pol Pot or others - that had no concern for human beings." "Sadly, that is not the case," added the No. 2 Senate Democrat. "This was the action of Americans in the treatment of their prisoners."

Stupid for sure. Here, send him this:

Dear Senator Durbin:

I cannot believe how incredibly stupid you are. I mean rock-hard stupid. Dehydrated-rock-hard stupid. Stupid, so stupid it goes way beyond the stupid we know into a whole different dimension of stupid. You are trans-stupid stupid. Meta-stupid. Stupid collapsed on itself so far that even the neutrons have collapsed. Stupid gotten so dense that no intellect can escape. Singularity stupid. Blazing hot mid-day sun on Mercury stupid. You emit more stupid in one second than our entire galaxy emits in a year. Quasar stupid. Nothing in our universe can really be this stupid. Perhaps this is some primordial fragment from the original big bang of stupid. Some pure essence of a stupid so uncontaminated by anything else as to be beyond the laws of physics that we know. I'm sorry. I can't go on. This is an epiphany of stupid for me.

It may be the last chance for a power grab.Or
..my guess is
that these Democrats are trying to look reprehensible so
that Hillary can appear moderate and concilatory,
the good cop/bad cop scenario. It won't be the first,
or last time someone takes a hit for the Clintons.

By the way, what info was in those stolen FBI files that the
Clintons have, on their "fellow" Democrats? Could they be
using information they have to blackmail their own party?
I wonder.
That might explain why Democrats seem to be self-destructing
lately....(i.e. get out of way of Hillary, and make her look
good, or else we will leak information about your nefarious
deals..)

My son is also in Iraq and I consider Durbin to be just as much of the enemy as the terrorists and insurgents. One and the same. For any soldier that is killed now Durbin is just as responsible as the enemy in Iraq or Al Quaida.
In fact Senator you are a much greater enemy than the one we face in Iraq and you should be treated as such. I evocate any action by my government to treat you as a traitor to this country. Last time your elk tried this was Vietnam and we were refused a voice by MSM. But not now Senator, not now, and not ever again!!!!! I have a voice, you are exposed, you will continue to be exposed. I call for your arrest for treason, I call for your impeachment, and I call for your disgrace. I will not stand by why you perpetuate the death of my children. If our children can fight the enemy for us in Iraq we can fight the enemy at home for them. I encourage all parents with children in the service to unite and get rid of this type of scum in congress.

Senator Durbins comments put my son in danger. He has done one tour of Iraq and will do one more before he is out of the Army. Senator Durbins comments (that are lies) give aid and succor to the enemy that wants to kill my son.


He has done the same to mine. Would a lawsuit be approiate?
Just a thought. Anything to get this hate filled swine out of the public life. Any suggestions?
