Peace Terrorists Assault Iraq Vet & Family, Including Wife and Teenage Son

I just read this on Melanie Morgan's site, as well as a companion report on PeaceThugs.com. This is so outrageous that it should make every red blooded American's blood boil with anger.

Recently, I wrote about Iraq War Vet Jason Swartout, who was assaulted by some 82 year old woman in the name of "peace." This veteran and his family have also had to endure their home being attacked on two occasions, their car vandalized and now, this past weekend, his wife and teenage son were attacked by some so-called "peace" protesters in Edinboro, PA.

Mel has a report from Dan Malone, NY State coordinator of Gathering of Eagles, and PeaceThugs has a report from Swartout's wife, Carrie, which follows below.

"We had a counter protest today in Edinboro. It was an Iraq war protest put together by Richard McVay. He was not present but there were about 10 college students, a couple professors and a group of Hillary supporters.

Anyways, Andrew went to the their protest site to videotape a couple odd displays they put up. They were beginning to get aggressive with Andrew simply because he was recording their protest. Jason and I went over to make sure he was ok.

Long story short one girl attacked me which turned into 2 girls attacking me. Jason pulled one off of me and then he was attacked and held down by 4-5 people getting punched in the head.

Meanwhile Andrew pulled the other girl off me and then she kicked me in the head with a great big boot. I called the cops and while we were waiting on them the girl that kicked me in the head went over to Andrew(14 years oldnand punched him right in the face. My 12, 9, and 7 year olds were standing across the street witnessing the whole thing.

Here’s the kicker. The cops watched the video at the scene and no arrests were made. One of the cops was very aggressive toward us.

The girl later spit on Jason right in front of the cop and nothing was done about it.

Amazing! Right now I have a huge headache and knots coming up all over my head. Jason has scratch marks on his face not to mention someone stomping on his glasses when they fell off. Andrew has a red cheek."


Mr. Maloney of GOE writes:

"I think it is long past time for the people in this country to wake up to the violence of the ‘peace’ movement. I think it is long past time for them to realize that not standing up to the excesses of violence will only beget more violence.

Last Fourth of July, in New Jersey, one of these ‘peace’ people walked up to a young veteran of the War in Iraq and Afghanistan and shot him in the heart just because he was in the military. Last month another person or persons unknown detonated an improvised explosive device at the Armed Forces Recruiting Station in Times Square. Today a veteran and his family were assaulted in plain daylight on a public street in view of dozens of people and not one lifted a hand to help. This is not the America I grew up in. This is the Amerika the ‘peace’ crowd is bringing to your town and neighborhood."

Where does it stop? What has to happen before authorities crack down on these so-called "peace" groups and their activities. I knew that a $25 fine given to Ann Dewalt last month for kicking Swartout was nothing less than a slap on the wrist. Shame on those police for doing nothing while this family was assaulted in full view of their younger children!

Peace...

Where is the love?
These thugs are paragons of virtue and morality in their own tiny minds.

Being a barbarian, my impulse is to respond in kind. I'm just not evolved enough to choose passivity. Unapologetically so.

The time is coming when those who do that sort of thing will die on the spot.

I still want to know why the peace-at-any-cost folks aren’t carrying around “Stop Jihad Now!” signs.

Sorry, that’s Ebensburg that I was thinking of. Endinboro is home to a famously lib “university” that used to be a teacher’s college.

This is a "hate crime" pure and simple.

There was an obvious conspiracy to deprive the veteran and his family of their constitutional rights with the complicity of so-called "law enforcement" persons.

A major lawsuit is in order. Put it in front of a jury, not just some lib-appointed "judge" and portray them as the villainous traitors that they are.

Take away their funding, and their assets. Destroy them legally and financially.

Folks...it’s time to take back our country from the left...

Everybody write your Congressman and Senators...refuse to vote for them or any other incumbent unless they move to open ANWR and our coast for oil exploration and send a message to OPEC that we are through...Tell them we refuse to vote for them or any other incumbent unless they put a plug in our borders and deport as many illegals as we can round up...tell them their “cushy” little political power jobs are over because WE refuse to put them back into office...AND MEAN IT when you say it.....The only thing our “politicians” are afraid of is not getting re-elected...

Tell them no vote unless they uphold the dignity of our veterans and military...PLEASE PASS THIS ALONG!!!!

Yes, it is your parent’s country. Don’t for a minute assume that the left is any more virulent today than it was in World War II.

The left pretends it used to be patriotic, but it has never been patriotic. In World War II, after the initial spat in the Aleutian Islands, the Aleutians became a dumping ground for leftist moonbats and “unreliables” from all branches of the service.

Oh yes, they did “serve”, because there were few exemptions. But do not confuse this in any way with patriotism. They either served, or they spent four years in a federal penitentiary.

Before WWII, the left worked in lock step with Lenin and Stalin. At first, they opposed Hitler, because he was not a communist. But when Germany and the Soviet Union signed the Molotov-Ribbentrop Non-aggression Pact, suddenly the radical left was filled with love for the Fuhrer. Then, when Germany invaded Russia, the left did another 180 and hated Hitler again. At no time did they give a damn for America, except for trying to turn it into another communist nation.

And don’t even get your hopes up about the patriotism of the “moderate” left, those who could and can be derisively called Mensheviks:

“What we were doing in this country were some of
the things that were being done in Russia and even
some of the things that were being done under
Hitler in Germany. But we were doing them in an
orderly way.”
— President Franklin D. Roosevelt

The “moderate” left of the New Deal admired and tried out all sorts of National Socialist economic schemes. They were also not averse to other fascist programs, favoring them over American constitutional law, which they saw as failed doctrine. Democratic party officials became de facto political officers, what the Russians called “Zampolits”, whose power derived from dispersing federal money to those who would obey them.

One cannot use the constitution as a rag, then claim any pretense to patriotism. Just as with the left today, they claim to “love” the United States, but this doesn’t mean they love the US they live in today. They only “love” the US that has been changed, perverted, corrupted, and to a great extent destroyed, in the fulfillment of their schemes.

A US in the evil, awful, and grotesque future they desire.

A US of the future that is utterly dominated by the left. That is the only US they love.

My kids and I thank every soldier and veteran we come across. The soldiers we thank alway show appreciation...most of the vets do too...but there is the occasional one who throws a temper fit about how they are not proud of what they did, and how the soldiers of today should be ashamed of themselves.

I just shake my head, remind them that it was their service and that of today’s soldiers that assures them the right to express that opinion and walk away from them.

I don’t agree. In my parents day people were locked up for committing assault and battery at events such as this. Today people one one side are given a free pass for this behavior, but those of us who counter protest these moonbats are held to a different standard.
