Did You Know...

Lots of blog buzz over MoveOn.org’s latest, noxious anti-war propaganda. First, check out the video here (in Quicktime).

Notice this?


Best of the Web reported yesterday on a sharp-eyed Army captain’s reaction to that scene in MoveOn’s fund-raising ploy:

I just got back from my third deployment from Iraq on Friday, and I happened to be at the dentist and saw a completely offensive ad from the idiots at MoveOn.org this morning. Anyway, it is a Bush-bashing ad that pretends to be arguing for American soldiers families as they will miss the holidays and it shows turkey and crying wives and blames Bush for it all. Here is the crucial part of the ad that I would like to bring to your attention. As they pretend to argue on my behalf, they show a group of soldiers standing around a table in the Middle East…These are not your normal everyday U.S. soldiers though. If you look at the frame they are actually British soldiers. One is in shorts (we don’t have shorts as a normal combat uniform) and the others are all clearly wearing British pattern fatigues. So, my point is that these [turkeys] pretend to argue on my behalf and bash the president in the name of my crying wife, and they don’t even know what an American soldier looks like! Anyway, it really [ticked] me off.

BOTW notes: “The only thing that would have made this more galling is if the ad had mentioned that the liberation of Iraq was “unilateral.”

It gets better. Or rather, worse.

Brothers GOP and the City and GOP and College take an even closer look and notice MoveOn’s dishonest photo doctoring: Says GOP and College: “The photo on the ad was different than the photo on the webpage. The shmucks at Moveon had the nerve to photoshop the picture to make it look like it was American soldiers.” Here’s G&C’s graphic:


ABP: “Is the Left unpatriotic? You bet.”

Mark in Mexico gives MoveOn a lesson in American Soldiers 101.

Jason Smith muses about the symbolism of an empty chair in the ad.

Bad Example
catches MoveOn with its pants down.
