Skip to comments.The Liars Of The Anti-War Movement (Melanie Morgan: We Do Question The Left's Patriotism Alert)
Posted on 12/02/2005 1:26:16 AM PST by goldstategop
For the past two years, the old-line media has been more than willing to help broadcast the allegations made by the anti-war crowd that "Bush lied, soldiers died."
However, no matter how many times the likes of Michael Moore and Cindy Sheehan have made this allegation, they've never been able to make it stick.
The only thing they've proven thus far is that they hold a twisted hatred of this country and feel consumed with resentment toward America's economic, military and political superiority.
It turns out that it's not George Bush or Dick Cheney who has been lying to the American people, but the very anti-war/anti-military folks who have been pointing fingers at the administration all along.
The record of deception by the anti-war crowd reached a new low this week when we learned that MoveOn.org was broadcasting an anti-military ad that purported to show U.S. troops in Iraq who, the ad said, should be pulled out of Iraq straight away.
A sharp-eyed American soldier brought it to the country's attention that the soldiers in the ad weren't American they were British. MoveOn.org can't be blamed, of course, because they wouldn't recognize or appreciate an American military uniform if you paid them.
MoveOn then turned to deception to hide their mistake by graphically altering the uniforms that the soldiers were wearing.
Lies, lies and more lies.
Maybe Michael Moore was in charge of the editing standards for MoveOn.org, because this is the same type of stunt Moore pulled when producing his anti-war propaganda flick, "Fahrenheit 9-11."
In that propaganda piece, Moore declared that President Bush had stolen the election, and that newspaper accounts backed up his outrageous charge.
The film showed a headline "Latest Florida recount shows Gore won Election" taken from a Bloomington, Ill., newspaper dated Dec. 19, 2001. This outrageous story was entirely made up by Michael Moore.
Shockingly, there never was such a story in the newspaper. Instead, there was a similar letter to the editor written by a private citizen two weeks prior. Moore took that letter, and mocked it up into a fake news story. He changed the date and the font sizes and appearance and tried to pass it off as a legitimate news story.
And this week Moore flatly denied he ever owned stock in defense contractor Halliburton who he has made the boogey man in the Iraq war. Tax receipts show that Moore isn't telling the truth about that either.
Lies, lies and more lies, along with a dash of hypocrisy for good measure.
Anti-war politicians have joined in the game of deception recently.
Congressman John Murtha became a celebrity to anti-war groups recently when he called for an immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq.
TV analysts breathlessly reported the "stunning" development that a once-"hawkish" representative had turned on the war effort.
The anti-American message board DemocratUnderground was loaded with endless threads of discussion proclaiming the newfound bravery of Congressman Murtha.
No surprise here Murtha was merely pulling a dishonest political stunt, and he used the willing accomplices of the old-line media and anti-war crowd to pull it off.
Fact is, 18 months earlier, Murtha stood shoulder-to-shoulder with one of the most shamefully dishonest members of Congress, Democrat Nancy Pelosi, and declared that we should cut and run from Iraq.
And this wasn't the first time Murtha had advocated cut-and-run.
Pay attention here, because you won't see this fact reported in any major newspaper or alphabet soup network: He gave the exact same advice to President Clinton after American troops were attacked and slaughtered by Al Qaida-backed terrorists in Somalia in 1993.
When Clinton followed Murtha's advice, it is reported to have emboldened Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein, who have both said the incident showed that Americans lacked the will to fight for what they believed in.
But there stood an anguished Congressman Murtha under the hot klieg lights, with tears in his eyes, pretending he had come to some newfound opposition to the Iraq war.
Lies, lies and more lies and cowardice in the face of America's enemies to boot.
Is it any wonder then, that some of us do indeed question the patriotism of the anti-war crowd?
While the heroic men and women of the United States military are enduring hellish conditions in Iraq and Afghanistan fighting Islamo-fascists intent upon murdering them, they're being undermined here at home by shameful, guilt-ridden, spineless folks in the anti-war crowd who will tell any lie to justify their reprehensible conduct.
The next time someone on the Left attacks you, or your neighbor, or a friend for questioning their patriotism calmly look them in the eye and answer back.
Yes, we certainly do question your patriotism.

Many of the so-called peace movement threatened to beat me up because of my Ann Coulter t shirt, but I didn't care. They were just such scum.
Media whore Cindy Sheehan also spoke at the so-called peace demonstration and she was completely idiotic as usual.
This was FReeper CardCarryingMemberVastRightWC helping our local peace-niks with their annual anti-war march. They were clueless that he was leading their parade. LOL!
I love his shirt:
Rather than falling into the trap of name calling and questioning their character which will not win the debate I try to stay focused on the facts of the war. They can't win that argument. A couple of good resources are the National Strategy for Victory in Iraq put out by the National Security Council and available at the White House website. http://www.whitehouse.gov/infocus/iraq/iraq_national_strategy_20051130.pdf The other is the quaterly report to Congress which can be found at the DOD's website. http://www.defenselink.mil/pubs/20051013_publication_OSSRF.pdf
I would agree with you if we were dealing with good and decent people. IMHO, they consciously decided to crack a few eggs with the troops when embarking on the 24/7 war undermining campaign.
That being said the media will never publish anything positive concerning the troops or the administration.
Dropping the T-BOMBS "Traitors and Treason" is long overdue in my opinion.
Wait - uh, nevermind.
Hey Dems: We don't question your patriotism. We think you're a bunch of effing traitors.
Have a nice day.

Nice shirt! ;o)
Chances are most of the people you come into contact with day in and day out are decent and good people, just misinformed by the media. When you do run into a radical lefty debate is useless unless others are there to hear your conversation. If we are going to truly support the troops we have to have correct facts and figures to counter the lies and distortions the media puts out. The left wants us off point and calling them liars and traitors instead of proving their argument wrong.
You are 100% right. I stick to the facts, and I always win the argument. After I have soundly thrashed them in a logical arguement, they usually resort to calling me a nazi or fascist. That just makes me laugh, then I let them know how little I think of their intellectual abilities.
True but the lies have been allowed to be projected so long they have become "truth". For instance, how many people know about the Clinton directed DESERT FOX bombings in late 1998..or the Anthrax vaccination program for all personnel serving in the Gulf at the time. To say Bush concocted the WMD scare from his Governor's mansion is an outright revision of history.
I actually particpated in the DESERT FOX airstrikes..my liberal relatives just about called me a liar during an ugly discussion over the thanksgiving holiday.
Why is it, do you suppose, that conservatrive women, in general, are so damn attractive and liberal women just aren't?
That sounds like a lot of conversations I have had with my father. Although he has never said I was right and he was wrong, he has come around to my way of thinking. I could always back up my argument with facts, something he could never do. Support for this war will be done as a grassroots movement. We will never see the Dems or the media support the mission. Thanks for your service to our country.
Just to clarify..I'm not talking about the average american. I'm talking about the media types, the pelosi's, the Murthas etc..They know the history of Iraq and are consciously lying about it.
