The Donks Have Gone Too Far in Their Criticism

Because the Donks hate Bush and everything he does, they have gone over the edge in their criticism and screeching of lies. I have never in my life heard a politician liken another to Hitler, and when they start likening our troops to Nazi, you know that their hatred has blinded them to reality and civility. Sen. Dick "the Donk" Durbin, yesterday said that our troopers at Gitmo are like Nazis and Commies.
U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., is coming under heavy fire after saying American treatment of terror detainees at the Guantanamo Naval Base is comparable to torture at the hands of Nazis, Soviet gulags and even Cambodian mass murderer Pol Pot.

Durbin's remarks came last night on the Senate floor, as he diverted from comments on the Energy Bill to discuss allegations of prisoner abuse at the U.S. facility in Cuba. Quoting an FBI agent who was at Guantanamo, Durbin said:

On one occasion, the air conditioning had been turned down so far and the temperature was so cold in the room, that the barefooted detainee was shaking with cold. ... On another occasion, the [air conditioner] had been turned off, making the temperature in the unventilated room well over 100 degrees. The detainee was almost unconscious on the floor, with a pile of hair next to him. He had apparently been literally pulling his hair out throughout the night. On another occasion, not only was the temperature unbearably hot, but extremely loud rap music was being played in the room, and had been since the day before, with the detainee chained hand and foot in the fetal position on the tile floor.

If I read this to you and did not tell you that it was an FBI agent describing what Americans had done to prisoners in their control, you would most certainly believe this must have been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime – Pol Pot or others – that had no concern for human beings. Sadly, that is not the case. This was the action of Americans in the treatment of their prisoners.

How can this man call himself an American when he publically compares our military to genocidal Nazis? This is not about Gitmo and the alledged "torturing" going on there, this has a deep root of HATE. This is about an opposition party doing and saying anything they can to hurt a President and majority party and they are more interested in POWER than they are in protecting our nation, they are more interested in being in control than they are in the wellbeing of our men and women in the military! America is being subjected to a mass propoganda of lies, distortions and obstructionism from the Donks because they can't deal with the fact that they no longer are in control of the Gov't. The Donks have taken their rhetoric to a new low with constant anti-American, anti-Christian and anti-Republican daily diatribes of hate. When will John Q. Public wake up and see that the Donks are the party of Hate and nothing else matters to them, not even their constituants. It will be a cold day in hell before I ever believe anything a Donk has to say or does, because I know that their only motivation is HATE!
