Skip to comments.Irey to Murtha: Do you Approve of Using Fallen Soldiers as Democratic Fund-Raising Tools?
Posted on 07/12/2006 2:24:49 PM PDT by Just A Nobody
(MONONGAHELA, July 12) Washington County Commissioner and Pennsylvania 12th district Republican Congressional nominee Diana Irey responding to a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee fundraising video using images of caskets of fallen American soldiers today released the following statement:
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee this week sent out a fundraising video using images of caskets of fallen American soldiers. Raising campaign cash off the deaths of our honored dead is revolting. Nancy Pelosi and Rahm Emanuel should be ashamed of themselves and so should any Democrat who stands for this.
Consequently, I have a new question for Jack Murtha today: Do you approve of exploiting fallen American heroes for political fundraising purposes? If not, will you join me in demanding that Nancy Pelosi and Rahm Emanuel apologize, and then insist that the DCCC forward any funds raised off this disgusting solicitation to appropriate charities?
The DCCC video can be seen here: http://www.dccc.org/multimedia/archives/new_directions
I believe this is a completely different thing.
A burning, blown up HumV. Flag draped coffins in an aircraft. A rifle with helmet over it.
They are taking the anti-war stance and exploiting our dead military to raise funds for their Party, it's outrageous.
I agree, but I would like to keep my posting privileges and stay on the good side of Diana and the campaign folks. ;*)
Go get 'em Jaz!
Here's a new thread about that very thing, a firefighters flag draped coffin.
Oh. I didn't watch the video. : (
Don't forget to visit:
You're welcome teenyelliott, I'm glad you hadn't watched the video because I know you wouldn't have said that if you had. :-)
Can these people REALLY be this stupid?
I can only assume it is as misleading and depraved as everything else they print/do/say when it comes to national defense and the war.
Not to mention everything else.
Clearly, they are!
That's a little closer to my original thoughts.
"DUMP the EX-marine NOW!"
I've heard some Marines saying he should not say he was ever a Marine. This Airman agrees with them and he can shove off. He doesn't care about out people in uniform, all he cares about is the lobbyist brother of his that fills his pockets with money because of the money he sends in his direction.
Exactly! Thank you for your service to our country!
Man, she hits HARD. She is Coulteresque.
That's just freaking disgusting.
Yes! You are so right!
