National Guardsman Attacked [posted by Harrison]
— Ace

The soldier was walking to a convenience store when a sport utility vehicle pulled up alongside him and the driver asked if he was in the military and if he had been in any action.

The driver then got out of the vehicle, displayed a gun and shouted insults at the victim. Four other suspects exited the vehicle and knocked the soldier down, punching and kicking him.

But don't you DARE question their patriotism.

3 5 vs 1.

That's about the odds they need to do this kind of shit.

4 What do you get when you cross Ted Kennedy with JFK, Jr.?

A Canadian man sought by Flathead County authorities for crashing a rented airplane into a lake and swimming away as it sank with his girlfriend inside, has been arrested in Texas after 24 years as a fugitive.

5 Link fixed. I do o.k with my numbers, but my letters get me down sometimes.

6 Disgusting. Of course, one of the moonbat commenters over at Q&O thinks this is a right-wing plot, since lefties wouldn't be in an SUV or have guns.

7 The leftards are very fond of their Vietnam comparasons. It would seem, at least in one aspect, they're absolutely correct.

8 And yes, I do question their patriotism...very much in fact.

9 DU is making the same sort of rationalizations, but with some interesting additions. A couple of posters have asserted that it was a drug deal gone bad or gang related. Another poster there cited an interview on KIRO 710AM that said that the victim was black. Those are some very unliberal assumptions about the victim.

10 What patriotism.? Can't question something that is absent from either birth, public school education, peer pressure or living in the sewer of LLL proproganda and brain-washing. Reality-based, my rear end.

11 Obviously, they support (assaulting) the troops.

Just not the mission (of going to the store).

Remember: the highest form of patriotism is dissent (especially when expressed violently).

12 Likewise, it sounds fake to me as well.

13 Word has it that the Guardsman was a black guy, and the attackers all were white. Might have been a racially-motivated thing rather than an anti-military thing. (They're still pricks for doing it, don't get me wrong.)

If it was an anti-military thing...jail time, no ifs, ands, or buts. I'm a Guardsman myself, and this kind of anger and disrespect for a citizen who's just trying to serve his country is galling in the extreme. I hope they find these shitbirds and throw the book at them.

14 If it happened, it doesn't sound like a racial issue. According to the victim, the attackers shouted insults like 'babykiller'.

Also if its not an anti-military thing.  Anybody should be able to walk to the store without getting assaulted by punks.

16 If true, this is disgusting. The perpetrators should be found and shot.

But something about the story doesn't ring quite true....I don't know what exactly, but I'm going to wait before I get toooo outraged.

17 I'll ignore the fact that I put this in the comments section 40 minutes before it was posted.

*snif*

18 As someone who went through something not nearly as bad some years ago, I think that this is possible, but we need to wait and see what comes out of it.

But that idiot moonbat may be on to something, maybe Rove has hired roving (hehe) bands of Young Republicans to roam about the country beating up people in uniform, thereby discrediting the left.

19 It might not be moonbats, might just be some scumbags. If you go to the wrong places in certain towns that have a large military presence, it isn't uncommon for there to be thrill seekers who headhunt military members.

Thats also true, Wicked, had it happen to me several times when I was in. Where I live, we have a huge Navy population, and there are plenty of people that hate the fact they are here, even though the military has made this place what it is.

Oh come on! Everybody knows that "bablykiller" is just another racial slur against people of color!.

Like "macaca".

22 Yeah. That's what I do to those women walking around with "I Had An Abortion" t-shirts, too.

Posted by: Dan Collins at August 31, 2006 02:35 PM (Rj0Is)

23 It sounds fake to me too, but having spent several years in the area as an airman, I can vouch that there's plenty of anti-military types in the area.

24 5 vs 1.

I doubt it.

I think it was the gun. 5 and a gun vs. 1. Without the gun, this story might have been fun.

Assaulting military is incredibly goddamn stupid. These jackasses are begging for a Darwin Award.

25 About a year ago we had an incident here in Oregon where an OSU football player assaulted a guardsman at a club in Corvallis. Turns out that one WAS racially motivated -- the (black) football player objected to seeing a white man (the guardsman) dancing with a black woman. From what I recall, the guardsman gave as good as he got, and the assailant is no longer wearing an OSU (or ANY) football uniform.

26 The Guardsman in Oregon was dancing with his wife, who happens to be black, while on leave from Iraq.
Dancing while white?

27 The Guardsman in Oregon was dancing with his wife, who happens to be black, while on leave from Iraq.

That's right, thanks for refreshing my memory. Either way, it made me ashamed of my own home state.

Dancing while white?

He never claimed to be doing it well.

28 Frankly if the catch them they should get 50 years in prison and fed on bread and water and be made to appoligise for this crime

29 and there are plenty of people that hate the fact they are here

Aren't those known as moonbats?
