Spitting On The Corps

Hey I’m as tolerant as the next person on the gay ‘issue’, but some things are just too sacrosanct to use as props. Here is a prime example that just sickens me.

Iwo

The implication that last Friday’s SCOTUS ruling can be likened to the sheer hell that our courageous Marine Corps faced taking that mountain is beyond the absurd. Yes, I know it’s a First Amendment issue and they have every right to produce and publish such a mockery, but damned if I’m not going to speak out about it. The LGBT movement didn’t take a mountain with blood, guts and courage, they merely caught the right bench at the right time in history to make “progress”. Mind you, progress that flies in the face of biology and G-d’s creation of us all.

I suppose they miss the irony that those very men on Iwo Jima died in getting that flag raised in order for them to be where they are today, is lost entirely on them. In doing so they spit on the valor of the United States Marine Corps.

How about a smidgeon of gratitude and leave one of the very symbols of America’s greatness alone.

F.E.T.E.

    Bloody scumbags and their sexual obsession, immaturity, and dysfunction. Nothing says “It’s about love” like half-naked men making mockery of a symbol of true sacrifice.

    There is going to be violence over this decision. I won’t be a bit surprised to see at least one justice assassinated over this and the other bad decisions from this session.

    And of course the RINO’s have caved in. McConnell and Graham said “Well the court has spoken so it’s the law.” No it isn’t and the very fact those two idiots said that shows they have no idea how the constitution works.

    Step one, impeach out of control justices.
    Step two, convict and remove them.

    I believe there is a means to strip authority to rule on cases from the court as well in the constitution, but I won’t say that is so. (Study is needed)

    Photoshop? Someone could easily turn their trendy banner into, say, a German flag ca. 1940–or the Stars & Stripes upside-down. :em03: They’d never get this back.

    So lemme get this straight:

    Mocking an entire religion by drawing unflattering images of it’s main founder is perfectly all right.

    Having some obscure artist manipulate a photograph to try and equate two separate battles? Worst thing evah.

    Statement from Ed Freeman Photography:

    When I took this picture almost ten years ago, it never, never occurred to me that it would someday come to symbolize the victory we are celebrating today. Congratulations to all of us!
    Love to you all.

    Prints are now on sale with all profits going to organizations helping gay men living with HIV and gay veterans.

    So, this photo is NOT a photoshop, and it is over ten years old. It’s purpose is, and always has been, to help gay men living with HIV and for gay veterans.

    As you said, Jackboot, this may be legal but it is rather distasteful. Deej, even you must admit that the struggles represented are quite dissimilar.

    Speaking on behalf and in the voice of my departed “Grandpa Mike” (a veteran of combat on Tarawa, Saipan and Okinawa):
    What the hell is wrongwith you people?

    Mike suffered grievous wounds on Tarawa, including having one side of his body torn up by a mortar round and a bayonet thrust to his left thigh (N.B.: A loaded Garand beats an empty Arisaka every time.) He witnessed the deaths of fellow Marines in combat and saw the fate of those captured by the Japanese. (Eyes gouged out, emasculated and choked to death with their own genitals.) He saw, intimately, the deaths of innumerable Japanese killed with everything from a Ka-Bar to a flamethrower.

    Mike’s enlistment in the Marines interrupted his education. After the war, he had a wife, a son, no prospects and a pitiful cash-out for the malaria he’d contracted. He became a highly successful businessman, a champion Judoka (he bore no lasting ill toward the Japanese people) and raced in the America’s Cup. He lived to age 87 and while his physical wounds healed, he never got off those horrible islands. Somehow he compensated for everything he’d lived through and lead a rich, productive and full life. If you asked, he’d tell you there was absolutely nothing special about him. He merely did his duty as a Marine and later as a husband and father.

    This is the sort of man who raised the second flag on Iwo Jima. Three of them left that stinking pile of rock wrapped in their ponchos.

    So now someone dredges up a decade-old photo that makes a mockery of everything and everyone of that era.

    Outrage? Certainly. But a deeper look must be cast to the decay of a society that produces and popularizes disgusting comparisons like this. We’re not going to make it much farther, ladies and gentlemen.

    Welcome to the United Socialist States of Amerika where it’s history is open for mock and ridicule in an effort to minimalize and eventually eliminate the historic good that Americans have done. We need to worship gay marriage “hero’s”, we need to worship the High Priests of the religion of Global Warming.
    The destruction of America was ingenious. Set it up by taking over academia, media and the courts. Academia teaches anti American curriculum, the media promotes and supports it and the Courts defeat any challenges to it. Boom, the “Revolution” is over and we lost. It is clear the ballot box is no longer an option………we may have to look to another box to fix this.

    For liberals, the ends justify the means. The image of the Marines on Iwo is one I would have thought all Americans, regardless of their personal or collective neuroses, would have been willing to let stand for the powerful message it is. Alas, no. An opportunity to degrade both history and morality while enraging their ideological opponents can not be missed. The character flaw that causes liberals to find grievous fault with the morality of their parents will eventually cause so much strife, pain and entropy that it will burn itself out. In the meantime, we have this childish behavior.

    At the rate with which President Boyfriend is ‘defeating’ ISIS and ‘in-securing’ the border, the gay mafia doesn’t have much time to play out their string of recent victories here in the USSA. There are plenty of tall buildings for the growing population of Islamists to throw them from. This is not entirely said in jest.

    So, we can go by what Jesus Christ says about marriage, or what Ru Paul says.

    Decisions, decisions….

    Sacrament, schmacrament, say the Sodomites. You will submit, or we will destroy you.

    Daniel Greenfield, Sultan Knish, has the right of it: this is all about power for them. Orwell nailed it, too:

    [Winston's torturer, O'Brien]: “There will be no loyalty, except loyalty towards the Party. There will be no love, except the love of Big Brother. There will be no laughter, except the laugh of triumph over a defeated enemy. There will be no art, no literature, no science.

    There will be no curiosity, no enjoyment of the process of life. All competing pleasures will be destroyed. But always — do not forget this, Winston — always there will be the intoxication of power, constantly increasing and constantly growing subtler. Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who is helpless. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face — forever.

    We control life, Winston, at all its levels. You are imagining that there is something called human nature which will be outraged by what we do and will turn against us. But we create human nature. Men are infinitely malleable.

    If you are a man, Winston, you are the last man. Your kind is extinct; we are the inheritors. Do you understand that you are alone? You are outside history, you are non-existent.

    “Tell me,” [Winston] said, “how soon will they shoot me?”

    “It might be a long time,” said O’Brien. “You are a difficult case. But don’t give up hope. Everyone is cured sooner or later. In the end we shall shoot you.”

    That threat only works with people who play the legal game. We aim to misbehave.

    This turns out, of course, to be Commie pipe-dream.

    You’ll note that our side, hyperbole aside, would never ever burn those who made the Photoshop alive, nor would we rape their families and then saw their heads off with a rusty blade.

    But yes, they have earned our scorn, derision and anger, as is right in a nation where men may still disagree and express their disagreement freely.

    Likewise, I have no problem with moslems being angry on behalf of their weak, easily insulted “god”, for such is their right too. They can be as angry as they like, they can refuse to talk to us, do business with us or even be in our company. Again, that is their right as somebody who holds a grievance.

    But they have no rights beyond that, and if they claim some for themselves, then they shall be repaid tenfold in the same coin they offer. And THAT will be entirely upon their own heads.

    Nope, never have. But then Saul Alinsky is not MY boogieman.

    What’s really funny is that I am willing to bet that there have been more people on YOUR side of the fence who even knows who Alinsky was, let alone spent time reading him. (and by “reading him”, I really mean to say had someone else tell you what he wrote.)

    Not for a lack of wanting to. There certainly isn’t a shortage of videos on YouTube right now where American Christian “pastors” haven’t stood at their pulpit and either called for the death of homosexuals or have actively prayed for it.

    You guys need to learn how not to be so fucking offended by everything.

    This image wasn’t photoshopped, it was staged, like the thousands of other images that have been “re-imagined” by different artists. THIS particular image is over a decade old and was for a cover of a magazine covering the “struggle” for gay rights. That struggle might not mean squat to any of you, but who the fuck cares if it does or doesn’t? If it isn’t any of your business, then the smart thing — the LIBERTARIAN thing — would be to simply ignore it. I certainly would have until people like you started making a bigger deal out of it than it warranted.

    Sacrosanct, Jackboot? Pshaw! I haven’t noticed you standing up and whining about the thousands of other “re-imagining” that this photo has been through in the past 70 years since the (almost) original photo was taken. Cartoons, commercials, ads, have all copied the flag-raising image using their own characters and branding without you once making a peep against it.

    I’ve seen you use that hypothetical argument any time you want to find some relativism between islam and Christians…..The difference is, killing the unbeliever is NOT a doctrine of the Christian church. But hey, us evil Christians might do something really bad to you

    like pray for you

    what do you mean by almost original? that it wasn’t the original flag that was raised on Mt Suribachi? You’re correct in that, a larger flag was brought ashore to be raised and that is the one that Rosenthal shot. BTW, he also shot the first one, but it was a small flag attached to a piece of pipe and wasn’t as spectacular. But the photo is real, Sgt Bill Genaust was a Marine movie cameraman who was with Roesnthal that day and captured the raising as well. Genaust was later killed on Iwo Jima……are you going to call his footage “almost” original too?

    “killing the unbeliever is NOT a doctrine of the Christian church.”

    In the assorted *current* various iterations of Christianity, that’s true enough. In the past, that was most definitely not the case. Not only were unbelievers slaughtered with church approval, even the faithful of other sects were put to the sword. As Arnaud Amalric put it: “Caedite eos. Novit enim Dominus qui sunt eius.” It took quite a bit of bloodshed to change that, but at least it did change.

    two maybe three reformations did it, that to me proves the strength and character of the church and the faith that we can evolve and atone for past injustices……not so with a certain homosexual killing middle eastern cult that shall go unnamed lest I offend anyone.
