Reuters reporter Mark Felsenthal reports that Sgt. Bergdahl's hometown in Idaho is cancelling its planned celebration. "Bergdahl's home town in Idaho has canceled plans for a celebration, city administrator says," reports Felsenthal on Twitter.
Keep those cards and letters coming!
I guess the people in his hometown don’t want to honor a deserter. There is a major untold story with this guy, as to why he was being held, or voluntarily stayed with, the Taliban.
They should move the welcome home party to Levenworth, Kansas.
Berg’Dousch will wish he stayed with the Taliban
Hand cuffs at the airport would be in order~
The hometown is probably getting threats and are afraid to celebrate defector Bergdahl. GOOD.
His old man said the other day that he was PROUD that his son was born the same day as Lady Gaga.
These morons have taken shallow no/low information to a new NADIR!!
Now THAT is a reason to CELEBRATE!!!
Good, there is plenty out there now that shows this guy was no hero.
Sucks for the town that the whole left culture tried to spin him as a hero, but they don’t have the grip on America they once had and the truth has gotten past them. I hope this is a trend and the whole liberal progressive 100-year experiment is coming to an end in America.
Never before in US history has an administration looked so completely inept and corrupt.
Rep. Duncan Hunter, of California, asked Obama in a letter this week why other Americans still in the custody of Afghan militants were not included in the negotiation. The families say their children, though without political or military ties to the government, are prisoners just as Bergdahl was and should be recognized as "innocent tourists" and not penalized further for venturing into dangerous territory.*****naïve is too sane a term for some folks.
"They really and truly believed that if people were loved and treated with respect that that would be given back to them in kind," said Linda Boyle, Boyle's mother. "So as odd it as it may seem to us that they were there, they truly believed with all their heart that if they treated people properly, they would be treated properly."
Relatives describe the couple, who wed in 2011 after meeting online, as well-intentioned but naive adventure seekers.
Obama plans crumble
Probably at the request of the White House. Not great optics to have Jihad Joe riding in a convertible waving to the crowd that’s filled with super unhappy vets!
Report: Bergdahl Hometown Cancels Celebration
Oh, they wanted to honor him alright. The problem they had was that the public was watching, and didn't approve. The heat got to them.
No matter what anyone says, we will stand by our hometown her.....wait, no we won’t.
Going to be kind of tough to push this to the Friday afternoon news dump!
“nadir” - what is that some sort of racist code word? a dog whistle?
Maybe 20,000 bikers wild like to join the party?
yeah that flush faced woman was interviewed on Hannity last evening. She seemed like a typical liberal just throwing out excuses as to why he said he was ashamed at being an American and why he deserted his men and almost everyone he served with stated he was a deserter. The lamest excuse was the men he served with were mistaken because they may have been confused (I forget her actual words) due to the mental anguish of war. You could tell Hannity wasn’t buying her BS.
Lucky it wasn’t planned around Sturgis travel time.
It’s in the dictionary. Look it up.
Would have been embarrassing to have the punk booed and have rotten fruit and tomatoes tossed at him during his welcome home parade.
They probably cancelled it because they don;t think he’ll shave his beard or wear western clothes.
The Blind Sheikh is next in line.
I’ve been thinking Gitmo.
Yes, they currently have 5 new openings to choose from.
Also, I hear they sprechen sie arabic, since he forgot how to speak English.
Of course. This IS that notoriously racist site, Free Republic. /s
Heather Dawson, the city administrator of Hailey, Idaho, said town officials called off the June 28 event at the request of organizers because the town “will be unable to safely manage the number of people expected.”
Thanks to Obama, the Taliban’s price for that couple (and their child, if still alive) just went up significantly.
I would imagine that several libs signed up to fight only to try and pull crap like this guy did. I can remember seeing a vid of the “human shields” in Iraq singing on street corners while the Iraqi population walked by looking dumbfounded and embarrassed. One woman in particular was strumming her guitar singing a Joan Bias protest song. The Iraqis just walked by her looking at her like she was crazy. After the invasion, they found a white western female in the streets, beheaded and nude.
Are they removing the yellow ribbons and hanging yellow nooses?
I think this is the real reason why it was cancelled.
I'm don't think anyone would have been throwing things at him (that's assault), but you can be sure the parade would have been attended by many veterans and other people outraged by the hero's welcome for a deserter.
And they likely would have expressed their displeasure in various ways protected by the First Amendment.
Or better yet, the nearest Oak tree with a large enough limb to support a hanging body.
I didn’t think a sarc tag would be necessary here.
Yet oddly enough, he was able to read and write notes, when first placed on the helicopter?
How does that work?
Is this a common phenomena?
Did it ever happen on Gilligan's Island ? ? ?
It’s not the town’s fault they were lied to. I feel sorry for them.
“...nadir - what is that...”
It’s the apogee of code words...
This just keeps gettin’ betterer and betterer...
BTW, does anyone know the status of the gal that tossed a shoe at Hillary a while back. Is she still in custody or what?
“looked” should be “been”.
People who want to do crap like this should do a lower stakes survey trip to an inner city in America. See how much kindness is reciprocated there. The Closing of the American Mind is getting people killed.
