Yesterday we pointed out this piece from a Wapo HACK, William Arkin where he insults our troops, calls them mercenaries and pretty much gives us a firsthand view of the far left and how they hate our military.
Wake up America's two posts on that can be found here and here.
As per Michelle Malkin, we have portions of an interview done with the Jackass Arkin: She suggests that Wapo give this guy some time off. I agree..... permanent time off.
Update: Allah links to Johnny Dollar's audio of Arkin on John Gibson's radio show. You really have to listen the whole thing as Arkin gets shriekier and shriekier, but here's my rough transcript of the exchange half-way through the segment...
GIBSON: The general tone of this piece is that the troops owe us, that we continue to support them through the war that they are losing.
ARKIN: Oh, come on, John, that's your characterization! (Voice rising) I don't say they owe us anything! I just say that when the troops start to express their dissatisfaction with the American public, they should look in the mirror and ask themselves whether or not the American public is their servant or they're the servant of the American public. (Voice louder) I nowhere suggested that the troops shouldn't have the right to speak up. I merely said we shouldn't put them on such a pedestal that they are above criticism IF THEY SAY STUPID THINGS!
GIBSON: Well, what is so stupid about...[plays NBC segment...Staff Sergeant: "If they're going to support us, support us all the way."]
GIBSON: What is so wrong...
ARKIN: (Going bananas, sputtering at top of his lungs) HE'S JUST TOTALLY WRONG, JOHN. PEOPLE CAN SUPPORT THE TROOPS AND NOT SUPPORT THE WAR. AND THE FACT THAT THESE GUYS IN UNIFORM DON'T UNDERSTAND THAT TELLS ME THAT THEY ARE BADLY SCHOOLED IN THE REALITIES OF [unintelligible]...
This guy is a real piece of work, but THEN Black Five's Uncle Jimbo goes on fox and rips into the little weasel, Arkin.
You GO Matt!!!!!!!!!!!!! Read Black Fives original comments to Willaim Arkin here.
Thanks to Hot Air for posting that video.
[UPDATE] William Arkin simply doesn't know when to shut up and has written yet another piece, found here. (Hat Tip to FaultLine USA.)
My comment on that piece is in the comments section of the article where I state:
What you STILL do not get Arkin is this: THEY, the soldiers are IN Iraq and THEY do not think it is an unwinnable cause....YOU do.
Considering THEY have their boots on the ground, THEY are there seeing the progress and successes as well as the failures that you and your ilk chose to ONLY show...perhaps, THEY are in a better position to KNOW than you are sitting behind your keyboard.
GET A CLUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They have EVERY right to criticize the media because they SEE what the media refuses to report....which is their progress and successes.
They also have EVERY right to criticize us, the American people, because not enough of themDEMAND the MSM show the whole picture.
We turn on our televisions, watch what you people shove down our throats (which is ONLY THE BAD NEWS)then "we"decide we understand what is going on over there more than the soldiers do??
What planet do you live on where THAT is ok?
Their criticisms are correct and I am GLAD they are speaking out, it is about time the American people are told what YOU and your ilk deliberately hide from them.
You disgust me and my readers.
The man just doesn't get it....The troops have every reason to be frustrated and I wish more of the MSM had the guts to SHOW IT.
