It Begins… Bayonet Company Rips Obama: “He Should Get Educated”
Gateway Pundit ^ | 10/23/12 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 10/23/2012 1:02:44 PM PDT by Clint N. Suhks

Last night Barack Obama mocked the use of horses and bayonets in the military. Today Bayonet Inc. told Obama to “get educated.” TMZ reported:

TMZ spoke with multiple people in the bayonet industry who tell us they were shocked and even offended when Obama brought up the weapon during last night’s debate.

According to the official U.S. Marine Corps website, every Marine is STILL required to complete a bayonet training program … because “the weapon becomes just as effective [as a rifle] in close combat situations.”

We spoke with Dan Riker from Bayonet Inc. — a leading military surplus outlet that specializes in bayonets — who tells us he believes Obama’s comment was “ignorant … because our soldiers still use bayonets.”

He adds, “[Bayonets] are still distributed to the military all the time — he should get educated on it.”

Maybe the military just doesn’t use the Hopium Pipe as much as 0bama.

I heard Obama had the Marine that greets Marine One removed because he laughed in Obama’s face when he said he had a fwend named Biggus Dickus.

As I sit here with my Imperial U.S.M4 ~ sharper than a razor ~ it occurred to me that only an ignorant sissy-boy would mock such a weapon...

News from the future

October 29, 2012. All military contracts with Today Bayonet Inc. have been cancelled. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta stated that the reason was "they didn't know when to shut up" and that they "were insufficiently worshipful of the President". Marine drills will be changed to use hand made pointed sticks for close combat training.

0bama doesn't think bayonets are useful instruments of war anymore?

He should tell that to Gaddafi.

Obama will be instructing the EPA to declare bayos as an endangered species and direct the agency to outlaw any and all devices, such as nets or traps, specifically designed to catch them.

New EPA regs: No more bayonets or bayotraps.

An excellent education for the ILLEGAL ALIEN IN CHIEF would be to parachute him into Benghazi with a bayonet and just as much ammo as U.S. Ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens, Tyrone Woods, Glen Doherty, and Sean Smith had.

That would be justice!

How is 0bama's office chair like a toilet?

Most of the time it's empty. The other times it's full of Shiite.

What are those pointy things at the end of their rifles?

Sept. 11, 2011

President Obama walks past an honor guard line with Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta in Arlington. Behind them are first lady Michelle Obama and Adm. Michael Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs.

I keep reading about Marines using bayonets in response to Obama's comment. Doesn't the army infantry still use them as well?

Entered Army Service M6 (1957), M7 (1964), M9 (1987) Description and Specifications The M6 bayonet-knife is used as a bayonet on the M14 series rifle and as a hand weapon.

He should also get educated that aircraft carriers and boats that go underwater cost a lot more than a sailing ship.

I think Obama mentioned the Bayonet because its training includes the ‘Buttstroke’. Which doesn’t mean what he thinks it might.

He adds, “[Bayonets] are still distributed to the military all the time — he should get educated on it.”

The Food Stamp President has degrees from several prestigious universities, but not much of an education .... the best he can claim is “lawyer” which is equivalent to a pooper scooper at a rodeo.

Heads up.
Vice President Joe Biden, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta ONLY ... should also be parachuted with the Arab-Kenyan, as his security team with the same amount of ammo, weapons and support as Ambassador Christopher Stevens and his support team had.

P.S. we should give the a bayonet, each.

So much fertile ground to plow here in addition to the "spirit of the bayonet":

Yes obummer there are aircraft carriers and airplanes do land on them. They would be dead ducks if they weren't surrounded by a multi-ship task force for protection and support. Each carrier battle group can consist of 8-12 ships in addition to the carrier.

All submariners would rather be shot than call their submarines "ships" as you did. They are "boats".

And finally, yes Mr. know it all, they are riding horses in Afghanistan.

It doesn't look like you did learn much as CiC after all...

Every time he finished speaking, then stared at Romney as though he was on opiates, continually blinking with ire, I was just waiting for Romney to nonchalantly back hand b*tch-slap him. I could imagine the sissy-boy cowering and crying for help as he pretended to have half the testosterone of a 4th grader.

Very strange. Apparently some folks in the Marine Corps have never checked the fit of bayonets on their current primary battle weapon, the M4. They do not fit! They haven't fit since the Corps exchanged their M16's for M4's.

Today's bayonet is nothing more than a fancy fighting knife that can not be attached to the Marines basic weapon.

I read many years ago that the bayonet was considered obsolete in military circles, but it is still issued because it is the one tool that most soldiers will NOT throw away.
