I'm writing in response to Nancy Moore's call for an apology from U.S. Rep. Paul Broun in the Nov. 16 News-Times.
Liberals love to call for "unity" when one of their own is being called out for offensive remarks, but are strangely silent when their Democrat friends and heroes say outrageous and hateful things about our military.
Barack Obama made a statement during the campaign that our American soldiers were air-raiding villages and killing civilians in Afghanistan.
Democratic U.S. Rep. John Murtha, from Pennsylvania, said our soldiers killed innocent civilians in Iraq in "cold blood" because they were tired and stressed. He also called his own fellow citizens of Pennsylvania "racist" and "rednecks." Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin likened our military to the Gestapo in Germany on the Senate floor.
Until Mrs. Moore also censors the divisive and hateful remarks of the Democratic Party, I'll assume she wants only Republicans to bow at Obama's knee and ask repentance. I seem to remember during the heat of the Iraq war that Democrats were telling us that dissent was honorable in a free society.
I guess that freedom applies only to Democrats.
