The list of reasons to think electing Obama was the single worst decision ever by voters grows, and grows. Bob Owens points out the latest reason
David Codrea has revealed that President Obama has so little regard for the United States Marines risking their lives under his command life that they were forced to dismantle their already empty parade rifles for his second inauguration parade. This is nothing less than aslap in the face of the Corps:
“Didn’t know the Marines had to take the bolts out of their rifles for the Inaugural,” an email forwarded toGun Rights Examiner from a United States Marine Corps source observed. “Wonder if someone can explain why [they] would be marching in the inaugural parade with no bolts in their rifles!”
The email linked to a YouTube video of the 57th Presidential Inaugural Parade, embedded in this column, featuring Bravo Company Marines from the Marine Barracks Washington. Sure enough, the observation in the email is confirmed by watching the video, with screen shots provided in the photo and slide show accompanying this article.
This prompted an internet search to see if others had also noticed, and the Blur-Brain blog had.
“The bolts have been removed from the rifles rendering them unable to fire a round,” the post stated. “Apparently Obama’s Secret Service doesn’t trust the USMC. Simply searching each guy to make sure he didn’t have a live round hidden on him wasn’t enough, they had to make sure the guns were inoperable.
Gateway Pundit is also blogging about this. This picture shows the rifles disabled
Robert beat me to it AND did a great job!
First let me say whoever took this video exercised extreme stupidity. And uploading it for public view took that stupidity and multiplied by a factor of 100.
That being said. I find it very funny that in our nation we have become so PC that we don’t even think of what is actually happening on the battlefield. You look at that video and the bleeding hearts are a gasp because of a urination bath. Never mind the HOLES in the dead enemy it’s the “Urination” that bothers us… Personally I’d rather see the enemy covered in Bacon and set on fire, but to each is own I guess.
The other thing about the “CAIR” condemnation over the urine bath is this: When did they condemn the torture/beheading/whipping/raping/hanging of folks in the name of Islam? Yeah never. But I guess pissing on a bunch of DEAD goat loving enemy combatants is too much for them…
Think about this for a minute and explain it to me if I’m wrong:
In 2008 Obama promised to close GITMO because the left feels like it’s “Cruel and unusual punishment” to keep combatants in prison. Okay GITMO is still open. How many enemy combatants have been put in GITMO since Obama’s election? ZERO. WHY? because he can’t or he’d be just like Booosh right? So what do we do now? We kill them from above using drones or spec/ops. How is that BETTER than detaining them in GITMO? Killing them is more humane than imprisoning them. I’m good with it I just would like to know how it’s spun to be MORE HUMANE.
One more piece of info that’s missing on this video is the “PRIOR” to urinating on these scum, did a firefight take place? did these Marines lose a brother or two in the fight? Was there communication between the sides with maybe the dead making mention of pissing on the Marines corpses? Did the Marine’s just turn the tables?
Now I agree this is NOT how a civilized nation should conduct themselves but I also understand the enemy. The enemy uses kids, women, target innocent civilians, behead journalists, hang our guys from bridges, attack schools etc… So pissing on them IMO is a waste of piss, but if it pisses CAIR off I’m good with it.. Carry on Marines.
Note to the enemy’s fighting the Marines: IF you don’t want to get pissed on? Don’t die fighting the greatest military force in the world. You don’t want to have your body bathed in PISS? Don’t attack a Marine fire squad. just a little helpful hint…
I rarely stand and applaud after reading a blog post, but in this case I think I should! BRAVO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
May God bless the United States Marines! Happy Birthday to the USMC!
235 years ago today, the United States Marine Corps was born in a tavern in Philadelphia, PA. Each year, on November 10th, Marines all over the world celebrate the birth of the Corps. Marines and their wives go to balls, with a formal cake-cutting ceremony and a solemn reading of Gen. John A. Lejeune’s birthday message, summarizing the history, mission, and traditions of the Corps. The country is reminded of the valor, the pride, the honor, of being a United States Marine. The Corps values of honor, courage, and commitment still remain strong today, and Marines deployed all over the world uphold those values as they fight to defend our freedoms.
235 years later, Marines remain faithful. When Semper Fidelis was adopted as the motto of the Marine Corps, it was taken to heart. From Marines who remain fanatically devoted to their country, to the Corps, and to their fellow Marines, to the wives who stand devoted by their husbands’ sides through war and peace, we remain steadfastly faithful through the good and the bad, the easy times and the times when you feel like you can no longer go on.
As a Marine Corps wife, Semper Fidelis is my vow, too. It is my duty and my honor to stand beside him, to be always faithful not only to my husband but to the values of the Marine Corps as well. It takes honor to be a Marine Corps wife. It takes courage and commitment, especially when your husband is fighting halfway around the world and you don’t know if he’ll be coming back or not. It takes a special kind of woman to be the wife of a Marine. When you marry a Marine, you aren’t just marrying the man. You’re marrying the Marine Corps as well, and Semper Fidelis applies to the women left behind as well as the men who don the uniform.
Read it all, Cassy is the proud wife of a Marine, she knows of what she speaks!
