Sorry to Do This
But this pisses me off. Some of our Red State Moralists are suggesting we KILL Kevin Sites for breaking the video of the soldier killing an unarmed Iraqi.
Please know I hold no judgement against the soldier, what with the possibility that the body may have been booby trapped and such. This is not a post about that situation. It is being investigated via the process.
This is a post about some of the right out hatred espoused by some of the “moral” red staters. They claim moral superority, but say things like:
Turn Sites over to the terrorist.
No need for anything overt. Unfortunate things happen in combat zones, and if the reporter fails to hear someone yell “Sniper!!”, well, c’est la guerre.
It better charge Sites, that treasonous bastard!
He should be charged as a traitor — the government should make an example of him
Also, these are the same people who said this about Elizabeth Edwards cancer diagnosis (many were gracious, but there was plenty of scat spued):
If I were a doctor, I’d be frightened to treat the wife of a guy who sues doctors for a living.
any doctor here who treats her should have his head examined.
I wonder if she will be able to find a doctor with enough malpractice insurance in case hubby decides to sue over something
I know there is plenty of hypocrasy on both sides (I call things out on sites I frequent when I see hypocrasy), but for crying out loud, wishing death on people because they do not hold you views…damn! That is moral in my book.
