We have just learned that Senator Daniel Inouye (D., Hawaii) has passed away at 88. Whatever else the president pro tempore of the Senate was, he was a Nazi-socking badass of a G.I.:
In the fall of 1944, Inouyes unit was shifted to the French Vosges Mountains and spent two of the bloodiest weeks of the war rescuing a Texas Battalion surrounded by German forces. The rescue of The Lost Battalion is listed in the U.S. Army annals as one of the most significant military battles of the century. Inouye lost ten pounds, became a platoon leader and won the Bronze Star and a battlefield commission as a Second Lieutenant.
Back in Italy, the 442nd was assaulting a heavily defended hill in the closing months of the war when Lieutenant Inouye was hit in his abdomen by a bullet which came out his back, barely missing his spine. He continued to lead the platoon and advanced alone against a machine gun nest which had his men pinned down. He tossed two hand grenades with devastating effect before his right arm was shattered by a German rifle grenade at close range. Inouye threw his last grenade with his left hand, attacked with a submachine gun and was finally knocked down the hill by a bullet in the leg.
Dan Inouye spent 20 months in Army hospitals after losing his right arm. On May 27, 1947, he was honorably discharged and returned home as a Captain with a Distinguished Service Cross (the second highest award for military valor), Bronze Star, Purple Heart with cluster and 12 other medals and citations.
You seem to have issues with women.
Trying to re describe “sexual assault”by a sitting Senator, and what Rush Limbaugh in the 1990s described as him groping her up under her clothing as he cut her hair, as mere “sexual harassment” and something that “I imagine 99% of us could be guilty of some level of sexual harassment at some point, unless queer.”, is just incredibly weak and weird, creepy actually.
Look up projection, my FRiend. This dude is perfectly happy with women in general. Only liberal progressive women give me a pain.
Go back to pretending anyone but yourself gives two hoots about what “our pretending protector sheepdog” barks about as the moon rises above the horizon.
You need to look it up yourself, your posts are bizarre and creepy.
For you to dismiss claims of groping under clothing as I imagine 99% of us could be guilty of some level of sexual harassment at some point, unless queer. is just flat out creepy and without question it sounds like someone with deep problems with women.
Inouye did all of this harassing with one arm? He’s an overachiever... :)
In 2000, his Distinguished Service Cross was upgraded to the Medal of Honor.
An American Medal of Honor winner.....Props
Your posts only get creepier, by the way, Inouye was a creepy liberal himself, this woman thing might not be all the attitudes that you two share.
