Nasty Letters To Crooked Politicians

As we enter a new era of politics, we hope to see that Obama has the courage to fight the policies that Progressives hate. Will he have the fortitude to turn the economic future of America to help the working man? Or will he turn out to be just a pawn of big money, as he seems to be right now.

Ignorant Right Wing Nutcase Tries to ReWrite History and Turn Blood Into Wine

First, perhaps the reader should reflect on this screed, published in a neo-con magazine: Mackubin T. Owens on Vietnam & War Crimes on National Review Online after which the following letter to that author will make more sense.

My Letter to Crooked Politician--or writer--or whatever he is:

Dear Sir:

I reject your entire premise, which I won’t go in to with detail, about John Kerry’s testimony in 1972. He was a God-send. He was right then. He is right today. Starting with the Eisenhower ‘advisors’ sent in to V/N in the middle of the last century and moving through Johnson’s absurd Gulf of Tonkin Resolution…the V/N war was an insane delusion of those in power to assume the absoluteness of their ideology by sending our young people to die. (Sound familiar? Can you say IRAQ Quagmire??)

And having your ilk pick up the pieces and hide the nasty, ugly facts later. Worse, you try to make wine from their blood.

Is it that you righties want to alter the perceptions of “even those too young to remember it?” I remember it. Since I didn’t read the balance of your article, in the paid, digital version, I must assume you have had battlefield experience and are not just running off at the mouth.

And certainly, you have the medals to prove your substance during that conflict, as does Senator Kerry. Or maybe you did hard time in the Hanoi Hilton with Senator McCain?

You hard-righties really disgust and upset me exactly the way your ilk did during the criminal incursion into nation building, prompted by the idiotic and unquestioned ‘domino theory,’ now referred to as the “Viet Nam War.”

Why not express your zeal to the nearly 60,000 names on the Memorial Wall in D.C.? Why not tell the other 250,000 walking wounded and maimed and mentally broken service people with no where to turn, since the VA can’t handle their burgeoning medical needs any more? And this after all the promises made to our men & women?

Promises broken. By you and your ilk.

How dare you write such hogwash?

(Update Update Stop the Presses: "Mac" was quite articulate--displaying the full range of his magnificent "dittohead" mindset-- with a fast email resonse to my letter. He sent me a message: "Have a big cup of shut the fuck up." Advice that perhaps "Mac" would use to clean out his own closet, first. What else could this guy have to add? Mac, you have a nice day ;-))
