Skip to comments.Iraq War Vet Spat On, Called Baby Killer
Posted on 11/27/2005 12:29:48 PM PST by kristinn
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.
In an odd sort of way I feel sorry for the man who shoved the Marine. Don't you have to be totally insane or suicidal to shove a Marine just back from a war?
Got to keep that one in a file for later use.
I've been waiting for this to start happening.
The past is prologue.
I love happy endings too. God Bless that wounded Soldier and all who were there that night to back him up.
Love it :-)
If I see one person attack a Vet, then they are going to be in a world of hurt.
I would pay to see that. :)
Its quite funny when they actually realize it too, gets them every time.
What a POS ..
Kristinn! I can't believe you're not ready to kill each and every one of these protestors on a daily basis. You're a MUCH better woman than I am.
I've been spit at too, while in uniform. I was in my Class A uniform and was near the UW Madison Campus. It was during Operation Desert Storm and I was going to the Capitol to testify before the Wisconsin Senate in support for funding for military families. Of course, since parking is a b*tch in Madison, I ended up hoofing it a few blocks to the Capital. Some young punk decided he'd spit on me, even after I greeted him cordially as we passed one another on the street. He missed, but the sentiment was real enough.
He ran away like the p*ssy he was after he did it, too.
God Bless You! We vets appreciate your efforts in this area. :)
Sounds like SOP from the 60's........What price freedom!
My father faught in Vietnam. Back then he was spit on and mocked by the left when he returned. This kind of crap make my blood boil.
Ahhh... Kristinn is a man... ;0)
Kim Peterson is a talk show host on WGST in Atlanta. He is also a Viet Nam marine vet. He was watching the Veteran's Day parade in Atlanta when...:
Oops! My Bad. Thanks all the same, Kristinn! Can we just call you "Ken" and stop the confusion? ;)
This story is so good, and I'm sure the men and women at Walter Reed are glad to have you on their side.
Many thanks for telling us this wonderful story of valor among our troops. I hope there will always be such a happy ending every time someone pulls this stuff!
"I just love a happy ending...(sniff)"
My thoughts exactly!
He did have his 4 buddies there also,so my best guess is that the 5 a-holes would have been beaten senseless.
The anti-war lefties warned that Iraq could be another Vietnam. Yet it is THEY who don't support our troops
(bringing them home now defeats the mission). It is THEY
that spit on our soldiers. Did any conservative/war supporters
in the Vietnam era spit on soldiers? No. It's all the
appeasement, "peace is patriotic", hate/blame America first crowd that does this kind of crap.
I wish I'd have seen that last one, better yet, I wish I'd had a camera. I hope they kicked arse. If you see him or any of our servicemen give them a heartfelt "God bless you" from me.
I swore I'd do my best to support the troops when those a$$wipes showed their ugly heads again and began their anti-war stuff. It was bad enough RVN vets had to go thru it, but they won't get away with it anymore. I'm glad these guys stood their ground and put a stop to it right then and there.
There will be more of it, but we can't let it go by without stepping up to back up our guys. We can't let the twits get away with it this time.
...in other words (on what I was saying) they say "we don't want another Vietnam", yet THEY were the ones who have
helped our enemies by cheering for a pullout. THEY are the ones who spit on soldiers. THEY are the ones who call for
the President to be impeached if not executed (see Randi
Rhodes, Mike Webb). THEY are the ones more likely to display
a hammer and sickle flag at their rallies instead of an American Flag (A.N.S.W.E.R.= Workers World Party= Commies)
"Don't you have to be totally insane or suicidal to shove a Marine just back from a war?"
It's either hilarious or pitiful (I can't decide which) when some liberal brained asshat that is pro abortion calls a soldier "baby killer".
Guns don't kill people, but abortion clinics do.
Saw that one on a T-shirt.
This brings back memories of 36 years ago with a simular outcome other than the leftist pond scum was unable to walk away. San Francisco airport security said the perp suffered an accident of his own making.
