Dem rep compares Taliban to soldiers in American Revolution (Nadler)
FOXNews ^ | June 10, 2014

Posted on 06/10/2014 10:50:54 AM PDT by maggief

A Democratic congressman offered a curious analogy on Monday to explain why the U.S. is dealing with the Taliban -- apparently comparing them to soldiers in the American Revolution.

According to sources, Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., made the comparison during a House briefing late Monday with administration officials on the trade of Taliban members for American Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.

Nadler apparently made the point that the Taliban, as non-state actors, have a status similar to that of American soldiers who fought the British during the Revolutionary War.

This comparison, Fox News is told, was met with a lot of groaning by other lawmakers.

ALINKSY RULE 8:

“Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new. (Attack, attack, attack from all sides, never giving the reeling organization a chance to rest, regroup, recover and re-strategize.)

1. Health in danger

2. Previously consulted with congress

3. Swiftboating

4. It was an oversight, sorry

5. Platoon full of psychopaths

6. Taliban threated to kill

7. "What difference does it make?"

8. Stockholm Syndrome

9. PTSD

10. No evidence converted to Islam, fraternized with Taliban, and declared jihad

11. Physically abused, confined in cage

12. Racism

13. Moderate Taliban

14. “Raggedy" platoon

15. "No matter what, to leave an American behind in the hands of people who would torture him, cut of his head, do any number of things"

16. Obama broke unconstitutional law (that he signed)

17. Wasn't only soldier to 'walk off' post

18. Only tenuous link to U.S. deaths

19. “PR campaign by Republicans” ... to “muddy the waters”

20. Hagel, NOT Obama, made the final call on #Bergdahl swap, (see also #16)

21. The Taliban Five aren't as bad as you think, three were governors

22. Decision made day before

23. Taliban Five akin to soldiers in American Revolution

I had the distinct honor and pleasure of shouting down this turd as he attempted to spin the media in front of the Broward County courthouse as the illegal 2000 recount was going on inside. Man, that event had every repulsive RAT in the country show up for the coveted media op.

Ya can't fix stupid, or traitor. Or apparently Democrat. It appears most of them are pathological liars and deceivers.

Hilarious that this was uttered by some fat Jewish dude that the Taliban would slaughter in an instant if they got their hands on him.

Is he suggesting our founding fathers would have flown airplanes full of innocent people into building full of other innocent people? IDIOT!

In Nadler’s case, you’d be hard pressed to FIND anything close to a normal mind inside that cranium. IMHO.

Seriously, these leftist lunatics really are crazy. The warriors in the Revolutionary War were fighting Tyranny from Britian...sheesh. Such kooks...this is what comes from bad teachers who don’t understand history, therefore cannot teach it.

“We’re getting killed! I want you all to go out there and support this decision publicly.”

“What the heck are we supposed to say? That dumbass President just saddled us with every terrorist attack from now on.”

“Don’t call them terrorists. Call them patriotic American Soldiers.”

“Are you high?”

“No, but they are in Seattle and Denver. Try it there.”
