Liberal Lies: Supporting the troops
In the Ohio State Legislature. A young man is both a serving politician, and a Marine Reservist.
So as he runs for re-election, I'm sure all we're hearing from the Democrats is how much they love and support his service right?
When Josh Mandel got a call from the Marines last year asking him to return voluntarily to Iraq, he had much more to contemplate than when he first enlisted in 2000. He had just been elected to the Ohio state legislature. Family considerations were also important to him. He ultimately decided to serve a second tour in Iraq “because I didn’t join the Marine Corps to say no when my country called,” Mr. Mandel explains.
Of all the factors he weighed, Mr. Mandel says political concerns were not among them. Now he has been forced to deal with the politics of that decision. The opponent in his tough re-election fight, trial attorney Bob Belovich, is attacking Mr. Mandel’s service, arguing that he abandoned voters. Mr. Belovich’s wife, Barbara, acknowledged in an interview for this column that she has told voters that Mr. Mandel “went AWOL” (a military term for desertion) by fighting in Iraq.
Liberals detest the troops. Liberals think the troops are stupid.
They detest the troops, thinking they are bloodthirsty murdering slime.
Back to the case of Josh Mandrel, the Democrats insist he can't be supported, because he's a jew. So in addition to the hate filled rhetoric against the troops, we have racist arguments on why Josh can't win.
As heard in the recording, Bob Belovich then added that Mandel won in 2006 in part because of his “blue sign” and “Jewish name.” Asked recently by this columnist what he meant by the comment, Belovich stated that many people think Mandel is a Democrat, including some who think so because Mr. Mandel is Jewish. Belovich, who is Catholic, then spent five minutes discussing the implications of Mr. Mandel being Jewish. (The district’s Catholic population is three to four times bigger than its Jewish one.)
The audio they're talking about here.
So being a Republican is Bad, being a Marine is apparently unforgivable, but my God, a Jew?
