Lefty blogger: "So 4,000 Rubes Are Dead, Cry Me A Tigris"

There really isn't anything that can adequately prepare you for the depravity of what you are about to read, so let's just jump right into it. Here's an essay from yet another patriotic liberal. Be cautioned before clicking the link: LGF is reporting that clicking the donation link leads to a virus, so be very careful.

So, 4000 rubes are dead. Cry me the Tigris. Another 30,000 have been seriously wounded. Boo fucking hoo. They got what they asked for--and cool robotic limbs, too.

Likely, just reading the above paragraph made you uncomfortable. But why?

The benevolence of America's "troops" is sacrosanct. Questioning their rectitude simply isn't done. It's the forbidden zone. We may rail against this tragic war, but our soldiers are lauded by all as saints. Why? They volunteered to partake in this savage idiocy, and for this they deserve our utmost respect? I think not.

The nearly two-thirds of us who know this war is bullshit need to stop sucking off the troops. They get enough action raping female soldiers and sodomizing Iraqi detainees. The political left is intent on "supporting" the troops by bringing them home, which is a good thing. But after rightly denouncing the administration's lies and condemning this awful war, relatively sensible pundits--like Keith Olbermann--turn around and lovingly praise the soldiers' brave service to the country. Why?

What service are they providing? I don't remember ordering 300,000 dead Iraqis--although I was doing a lot of heavy narcotics back in '03. Our soldiers are not providing a service to the country, they're providing a service to a criminal administration and their oil company cronies. When a mafia don orders a hit, is the assassin absolved of personal responsibility when it's carried out? Of course not. What if the hit man was fooled into service? We'd all say, "Tough shit, you dumb Guido," then lock him up and throw away the key.

As a society, we need to discard our blind deference to military service. There's nothing admirable about volunteering to murder people. There's nothing admirable about being rooked by obvious propaganda. There's nothing admirable about doing what you're told if what you're told to do is terrible.

We all learned recently that the Bush administration instituted its policy of global torture during quaint White House meetings. And we already know this war was started with lies. Shame on them. But what about the people who physically carry out these atrocities? We've seen bad apples punished and CEO despots walk free, but all verbal and written denouncement is focused on our leaders. Surely, they deserve that and more--decapitation, really. But why can't we be critical of the people who have actually tortured and murdered hundreds of thousands of Iraqi citizens? We deride private contractors like Blackwater for similar conduct--why are the troops blameless?

...

Again, what is heroic about involving one's self in a foolish war, being a shitty pilot or getting tortured? Yeah, it must have sucked, but getting your ass kicked every day for five years doesn't make you a hero--it makes you a Bad News Bear.

Here's where America's military lust becomes a true perversion. If we truly valued military prowess, John McCain would be viewed as a failure. But duty alone is enough to inspire our gratitude. Hence the left's tendency to obligatorily praise the troops while decrying the sum of their actions. Good thing, too, because this war is unwinnable.

...

How despicable must a military campaign be before Americans turn on their beloved troops? After chiding the "War on Toddlers" as fool-headed and pointlessly barbaric, would Keith Olbermann still thank the troops for their service? After the "Great Grandmother Slaughter of 2010," will the press remove the fat military cock from its mouth? Following "Operation Murder Fluffy Kittens," will the left finally nix the "honored service" crap? No. No, they won't.


Pat Dollard has this asshat's contact info. The piece originates out of Buffalo, New York and the author is Ian Murphy. Here's his contact info:

This little shithead doesn't understand why so many Americans have such respect and reverence for the military. Maybe it's because of the incredible sacrifice they make on a daily basis -- the risks they put themselves in, the lives they give up, the danger they face daily -- all to defend the freedoms this asshat so thoroughly enjoys.

And he's apparently not content to say he doesn't like our troops -- oh, no. He's gotta smear and slander them while he's at it. Apparently they're raping their fellow female soldiers, sodomizing Iraqis, and murdering civilians right and left.

Makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, huh?

Oh, and apparently, John McCain's incredible sacrifice of being tortured daily for five years as a POW in Vietnam is meaningless -- not just meaningless, but stupid and unworthy of our gratitude.

If this guy can't understand the service our troops are making for this country, then he's an idiot. And if he can so cavalierly accuse them of such despicable acts without even a modicum of proof to show that these things are actually happening on a regular basis (which, of course, they aren't), then he isn't just stupid.

I just cannot understand what makes so many on the left hate our military so much. I just don't get it.

There's really no deep commentary I can give to you about this, beyond to say the obvious -- that this guy is a disgusting idiotic creep who must have some kind of mental disorder to look at our military the way he does. The only thing I really can say is this: that every day, I am grateful for the sacrifices that our soldiers have made, because were it not for the fact that they have been so willing to be stronger and more selfless than I am, I wouldn't have the life I had today, and I wouldn't be enjoying the freedoms I enjoy every day. And it is all thanks to our military.

Maybe this asshat should remember who it is that gives him the freedom to say such horrible things.

"It's a number."

"I just cannot understand what makes so many on the left hate our military so much."

You don't get a lot of things. I think the left hates stupid wars - like Iraq and Vietnam - and believe tough love is the best way to stop them from happening again.

"oh, no. He's gotta smear and slander them while he's at it. Apparently they're raping their fellow female soldiers, sodomizing Iraqis, and murdering civilians right and left."

It's not a smear if it's true. I can point you to several stories of soldiers raping, torturing and killing and sodomizing. (With pictures as well) Do I agree that this covers 99% of of our forces? No. But it happens, more than you would like to admit.

"Maybe this asshat should remember who it is that gives him the freedom to say such horrible things."

The Iraq war has given us absolutely no more freedom. In fact, the argument can be made that it has taken freedoms away from us.

Please explain how this war has given us more freedom. Anyone, please.

So the guy wrote something with which we don't agree. Big f*****g deal, there are lots of people who don't think the way we do, who value things and people differently than we do. Did you seriously think everybody in this country thinks the same way you do, whether about the military or any other subject of substance? (answer: they don't).

I'm not going to lose any sleep or get upset in any way over someone like him making statements like this, I've got too many other things worth doing to spend more time on this than it takes to type this comment. Nor am I going to make it my mission in life to track him down and try to ruin him, get him fired, make his kids leave him or anything else, or wish for a biker gang to visit him, and I can't respect those who do.

Mac Lorry:

steve sturm,

The U.S. is a nation of laws with a government elected from the people by the people. In any society ruled by majority vote there can be a large number of people who don't agree with who gets elected. Even those who voted for a particular President don't agree with everything that President has done or proposes, yet they are elected according to law and it's that person who speaks as the President and no one else. If the President breaks the law then it's the duty of Congress to impeach that President. If Congress doesn't impeach them then it's meaningless within the context of the law to claim the President has broken the law.

The question is, do you have a better form of government that you want to propose? If not, then young people who join the military are serving the nation regardless of weather or not you or anyone else disagrees with what the President is doing with them.

Without young people to defend this nation we would have to take an aggressor's hits or use our nuclear weapons. I know there are lots of liberals who would like to see the U.S. destroyed, but there's a great risk that we would use our nuclear weapons in a last act that could destroy most life on earth. Is that what you want? If not, then you should be glad there are young people willing to defend this nation. Only idiots would hold these young people responsible for performing their lawful duties given them by the President of a nation of laws.

The idea of a nation of laws was once considered a progressive idea, but it seems progressives are now having second thoughts.

You think they're going to change their mind if only they see how upset you are? You think you need to get them fired or they'll take over the government?

Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if the poster wasn't just having some fun, writing something really outrageous just to laugh at a bunch of silly conservatives who got all excited. Uh, then again, maybe that was the intent of those whose comments preceded mine: write something really stupid and laugh at the reactions of those who come along later.

If you look at the web site in question you'll see they expect to generate hate mail and even have a place to send it. You think they read it? I openly stated what specific point I had in mind in that posting. Nothing more than to be able to send a message that actually gets delivered. If you want to read something into that, well that's a product of your own depraved mind.

And even post the info of someone who knows the other guy, and who you think knows "where to find him".

If you bothered to check the site before making your baseless assertions you would see Paul Fallon is the owner of the blog. He's not naive as you suggest. He's an attorney and certainly knows his domain registration is public knowledge. If he wanted to hid his identity it's easy, inexpensive and legal. I'm sure you hide your public info, right? Why are you trying to paint Paul Fallen as being is stupid or naive?

steve sturm,

Mac Lorry: thanks for the civics lesson, for that and a quarter doesn't get me squat. Again, so what that there are idiots who disagree with you?

Well there are lots of people who disagree with me; that's nothing new. The point here is this Murphy fellow is attacking people who serve this nation and he's trying to sway public opinion against them; why else post it to a blog? Sorry, but there are lots of veterans who simply won't stand by when individuals and their families are being attacked for serving in the military.

If it's ok for anti-war types to protest in front of recruiting stations, then it's ok for veterans to protest in front of places where anti-war types brew their poison. Like the vast majority of veterans, I've never protested anything, but nothing will get me out on the street faster than anti-war types attacking individuals serving in our military.

You can be against the war and talk nasty about Bush all you want, but when you go after kids serving in the military you can expect to be gotten after by their brother in arms, their dads and their uncles. That's a line not to be crossed lightly.

And while you probably didn't mean any offense, those serving in the military aren't kids. Referring to them as kids is for liberals who think those in the military need to be protected. They're adults and, no offense intended, when they're attacked, they don't need our help sticking up for themselves. They do a fine job of defending themselves... and thankfully, the rest of us.

As usual you miss the point. Their posted email address likely goes directly to the trash folder. Using their publicly available information, which they know is public, may lead to a better way of sending messages such as a letter or a phone call. You only show your own depravity by insinuating there's any unlawful intent. Do you think they should be able to post their disrespectful rant and be immune from hearing from the father of one of those they call "Rubes"?

You mean like the 50 some percent who were for the war before they were against the war. What changed these folks minds if not the constant drumbeat of the anti-war crowd.

Why give the guy his 15 minutes of fame? Why make him a hero among his fellow crazies on the left?

Evil only requires good men to do nothing in order to flourish.

And while you probably didn't mean any offense, those serving in the military aren't kids.

Well our troops have been collectively referred to as "boys" in song and in the press going back decades. Being the military now included "girls" near combat if not in it, and being the term "boys" has racial connotations, it's best to use "kids" as a collective term of fondness for the troops. Besides, every dad who has sons or daughters in the military refers to them as kids no matter how old they are.

You are confusing this with a liberal blog. Conservative are by their nature law-abiding.

The owner of that blog is responsible for what's said by the authors he invites to post articles. I'm not saying blog owners are responsible for comments left on their blog, but when they invite someone to post articles, then they are responsible for what's said. If the owner thinks an article is over the top they have the right and the responsibility to take it down.

I was very carful to make sure I got the information for the same Paul Fallon who's listed as the administrator of the web site in question. That information is easy hidden if there are privacy concerns. Paul Fallon is also listed on the blog web site at the top of the list of contributors. I also found public announcement pages where Paul Fallon posts the same phone number he uses for the web site registration. Paul Fallon intents for the public to know that phone number. The photo I found includes both his name and the name of his blog site, so there's no mistake. I did find the same page statigrace posted (#19), but didn't provide that link because I couldn't be sure it's the same Ian Murphy. I didn't see Scrapiron's post (#3) before I posted the contact information, so there was no intent other than sending messages (mail, phone, or in person).

If I wanted to do more than that I could post his home address, social security number, names of family members, financial information, etc. It's all in the public domain if you know how to find it, which I do. I deal with people in my business and I have to know who I'm really dealing with, so I subscribe to PI services. No big deal, anyone can do the same, it just costs money. However, I did not use those services to find the info I posted. I just did a whois and then used Google.

In general, many bloggers make the mistake of giving out too much personal information and don't realize just how little is needed to track them down.

As you can see from the post by Comatose (#36), Paul Fallon has posted the cartoons so insulting to Islam. Any risk you might imagine arising from readers of this blog pales in comparison to the proven risk of insulting Islam. If Paul Fallon thinks he's anonymous, then I did him a favor by showing that's not true. If Paul Fallon in not the naive buffoon you and Brian seem to be asserting, then I only made it a slight bit easier for a relative of one of those "Rubes" to contact Paul Fallon. You think he doesn't deserve to have that experience?
