Skip to comments.Iraq War Vet Spat On, Called Baby Killer

Over the course of the eight months of the D.C. Chapter's Friday night demonstrations in support of our troops recuperating at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, we've been fortunate to be able to able to speak with many soldiers and hear their thoughts about the war and those who protest against it.
Recently, one soldier shared his stories with us of his experiences with those opposed to the war. To preserve his privacy from vindictive leftists, I'm leaving out details that might help them identify him.
The soldier told us of returning to a stateside civilian airport last year in uniform. Most of the time, he said, he and his fellow soldiers are greeted warmly, regardless of politics.
However, this time he was approached by a man who berated his service. The soldier responded with what is a standard statement, that he was fighting for the man's right to make such comments.
The man replied by spitting on the soldier.
A police officer witnessed the exchange and promptly intervened. He arrested the man for assault and took him away.
This month, while the soldier was staying at Walter Reed, he ventured out with four of his buddies for a relaxing evening at a local establishment.
A man approached the obviously wounded soldier and called him a "baby killer." The soldier responded by telling the man that he was fighting for his right to say things like that.
The man replied by shoving the soldier hard in the chest with both hands.
The soldier instinctively defended himself and decked the man with one punch.
As the man lay on the floor, five of his friends approached the wounded soldier to take him and his four buddies on.
Foolishly, they failed to recognize the group of eight Marines and Air Force personnel also hanging out in the joint who had been watching the wounded soldier's back.
It was all over very quickly. The manager asked everyone to leave, but he made a point of thanking the military men for their service to our country.
Please be mindful of this soldier's privacy when you comment if you heard his story firsthand. Thanks.
Sigh. That "baby killer" taunt is SO old now. These lefty, usually pro-abort types never get the irony these days. God bless our brave troops!
Five against one is what the leftists call bravery.
Their sentence should be ten years in a society like Iran, Sryia or Saudi Arabia.
Course, they'd never survive the ten years. The first time they ran their mouth, off with their head...
Nothing i love more than when a leftist accuses me of being a baby killer and then i go who supports abortion again, the look on their faces is priceless.
The ending would have better for me if I had been there to help.
Yeah, I was just thinking about that.
Oh that had to be a good day.......the USMC & USAF present when a liberal POS decides to try and kick a Wounded Troops butt.......Was there anything left to clean up after the troops where done with the liberal trash ?
That POS had to think he was a human hackey sack when they got hold of him....LMAO !!!!
Awesome , thanks for the grin of my day Kristinn !
And what the DNC/MSM are doing to them is no better.
Me too, reminds me of when Buzz Aldrin decked that guy for calling him a fraud (that the Apollo moon missions never happened). That was sweet.
Check it out ping!!
"and called him a "baby killer."
The guy should have been punched and kicked in the groin so hard he could never produce. That would be justice, imo!
Too damned many fanatical leftists (progressives) believe THEIR "Freedom of Speech" includes being physically aggressive....
To correct this error in their minds -- requires a physically overwhelming response...
Great story. Wish we had it on videotape, so the asshole leftists would be forever recognized and branded in any bar they entered where Marines were present.
