Anti-war YouTube.com bloggers viciously attack vets and their mothers!
August 28, 2007
When I started two weeks ago, I could not imagine the out pouring of support you would give to this mission and how quickly everyone would unite – so thank you!
One of our partners, Freedom’s Watch, recently began airing ads with Gold Star Mothers and Iraq War veterans. These people are real heroes who have sacrificed everything to defend our freedoms and they deserve our respect and honor.
Unfortunately, the anti-war bloggers on YouTube.com are now personally attacking these loving mothers and wounded vets with the vilest comments ever imaginable.
In response to Laura Youngblood, who lost an uncle in 9/11 and her husband in Iraq, a blogger who identifies himself as, “thewarden70” wrote this, “This lady, if she can be called a lady, is completely incapable of telling the truth, any use of simple logic, and devoid of a soul.”
It gets worse! Another blogger naming himself as, “Thrashaero” penned this after watching vet John Kriesel who lost both legs in Iraq, “Aww poor thing. has no legs and still is too proud to figure out that he screwed himself over by joining to support a ridiculous war.your sacrifice is meaningless.”
The comment left on YouTube.com that makes me most sick is the one directed at Gold Star Mother, Vicki Strong. Ptboy90210 wrote this, “Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. Vicki Strong is a terrible person. Her son is spinning in his grave.”
We cannot stand for this. These radical anti-war members need to know their comments are unacceptable!
Please, call 1-877-222-8001 today. An operator will connect you to your Member of Congress. Please tell them what the anti-war crowd is saying about our brave American troops and their mothers! Tell them they must distance themselves from these cruel anti-war people!
Please remember that our message is silent unless you act!
UNITE FOR VICTORY!
