The Democratic National Committee has sparked outrage among veterans and others across the internet by running an anti-John McCain ad that shows U.S. soldiers being hit by an IED blast. The video excerpt in the DNC ad does not indicate if the soldiers survived. Video: See the DNC Ad -

Great, now I have a mental image of the ad with a disclaimer at the end which reads - No soldiers were harmed in the filming of this ad

Call the number on the add, they will claim they haven’t seen it. I called it and was asked if I wanted to talk to Howard Dean personally about the add. I told them yes and gave them my phone number.

I’m guessing they would oppose an ad showing Howard Dean being shot in the head?

There is nothing to see here, just the respective parties being what they are and doing what they always do: ‘rats figuratively blowing up US troops in a way they’d like to do literally, and then blaming ‘pubs for it.

The Communists at the DNC are in full force. The American people will hoefully see just what type of scumthey are.

OBTW - the news media won’t run replays of the attacks on the towers because it is too upseting.

Well how about the families of those who lost loved ones in this war!

Maybe McCain will start to see what his new found friends on the left are really like?

It is bad enough that the DNC is lying about McCain desiring a “100-Year War”. That is a boldfaced lie, about which the Republican Party, predictably, is doing nothing. But for the Democrats to use footage of American soldiers being harmed in combat operations as a political message is beyond the pale. About which, the Republican Party, predictably, will do nothing. After all, their own candidate might get upset if they did.

I don’t think I’d be too heartbroken to see a bombing of the DNC headquarters. Really.

Nice little irony. I believe that last image of a burning bus was from a video of US troops firing on and then rescuing the wounded insurgents from inside the burning bus.

That would have surprised the DNC's new pal, Rev. Wright.

No you don’t. We are better than that. We don’t riot and bomb, they do.

We want people to see them for who they are. Pity it had to be this way....

Matter of fact you are more right than you think. I would love to have the information from the FBI’s National Bomb Data Center declassified for the period of the 60’s and 70’s and see who Bill Ayers really was. What is interesting is the people who interacted with him and never condemed anything he was doing at that time.

We always knew the DNC were on the side of the terrorists — at least on the fringes. I guess the run-of-the-mill dems support them too, huh? Good grief.

The Marxists in the rat party have declared war against us.

People don’t realize it yet.

“The Marxists in the rat party have declared war against us.

Nothing new...the Commies have been “alive & well” in America since the Russian Revolution. And the present crop of Lefties are just products of college/university Commie indoctrinations that has been going on for decades all over America.

“Liberalism is just Communism sold by the drink.”

Remember who’s filming these bombings. It’s not Americans, but the enemy bombers. How did the DNC get this film? How much did they pay our enemy for it?

I saw that video when it first came out maybe 4 years ago. I believe it was shot by a fellow soldier or a reporter and I don’t think they were seriously hurt.

A devastating argument against these scatological marvels might go thusly:

The footage of Americans blowing up did not happen by chance. It happened because a Stringer was told where and when to point his camera, by a party to murder, for propaganda purposes. That propagandist is the Democratic National Commitee.

That's because they are one and the same.

Was it not the Demorats who cried when people wanted to use the WTC in their ads? And didn't people respect the family members of those who were lost on 911?

The backlash should be so huge that they would never pull a stunt like this again, but we will have to see about that.

In my mind, it don't get much lower then this. I gotta go git a bag and breath in it or something. Be back later.

This add reminds me of the picture of Jane Fonda sitting on the North Vietnamese Anti-Aircraft Gun.

If a video ad were run nationally that showed actual, real-time footage of the entire DNC and their supporters being summarily vaporized at the Denver Convention by the outpoured wrath of Almighty God...

...John McCain would angrily denounce it as “dirty politics” and the RNC would probably chime in with a press release denying the existnce of God.
