Iraq War Vet Spat On, Called Baby Killer
Sunday, November 27, 2005 | Kristinn

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.

The leftists will deny this, of course. But we've seen how they treat the soldiers at Walter Reed.

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!

Scum.

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...

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.

"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!

A happier ending would have included beating this bastard to the point of "enlightenment"......and inability to contribute to the gene pool.

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...

Semper Fi

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?

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. :)

The beauty of this episode is that it is in such stark contrast with what happened in the Vietnam sub-war of the Cold war.

The Leftists gained oligopoly in the media then, strong enough to pull a media coup (watergate) on an elected president, and later on an elected governor (Mecham ? sp) in Arizona. Now, their oligopoly is broken, and they are no longer strong enough for them to get away with this type of insanity.

Kristinn, I'm a better woman than you--LOL. (Note, Kristinn is a guy!)

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!

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 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)

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.
