"Dick Dastardly" Durbin insults US troops; nation's intelligence

I've called Senator Dick Durbin "Dick Dastardly" in the past, but he really lived down to that nickname yesterday.

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.
Hey Dickie! Pol Pot's regime murdered thousands of folks for simply complaining about the conditions they lived under. Untold numbers were tortured and murdered by the Soviets in their gulags during the Cold War years. The Nazis murdered literally millions during World War II at the hands of Adolf Hitler.

And you have the unmitigated gall to stand there and compare our troops to those butchers?

I don't see any dead prisoners at Guantanamo Bay. I don't see any tortured prisoners in Gitmo.

Hell, we're giving them the time they want so they can pray. We're feeding them pretty damn good food. They've got air conditioning during the day, heat at night.

But because you are so wrapped up in your visceral hatred of the Republican party in general and George W. Bush in particular, you're actually willing to vilify our troops -- endangering them even more.

Because of you and your Democratic cohorts, when the US is attacked again by terrorists, the rest of the world will say that we deserved it. That however many thousands of lives that are lost will be deserved.

Well, Dick Dastardly, those deaths, and the ones of the troops lost due to your personal vendetta are your fault. Yours and your friends. No one elses.

And as far as I'm concerned, you really should resign.

Matter of fact, I'm calling on the Republican leadership to have you censured. You, Senator, have violated your oath. By abusing your power as an elected leader in the Senate, you have violated the trust of our fighing men and women in harm's way across the globe, the trust of the citizens of the great state of Illinois, and the trust of the citizens of this entire nation.

Dickie, you're sullied yourself and what little reputation you had. Do the right thing now and resign before you embarras yourself and this nation further.

Oh. Mind you, Dickie, the longer you put off apologizing, the worse you make it for all you idiots on the left.

Very well said.

He can be emailed at this address: 'dick@durbin.senate.gov'

Here's the letter I sent him:

You are a disgrace as a United States Senator and as an American Citizen. Your comparison of our military to Nazi’s, Communists, and Pol Pot shows that you are nothing but a publicity hound trying to make a name for yourself throughout the world at the expense of our young men and women in uniform. It’s mind boggling as to why the citizens of Illinois have elected someone of your caliber to the senate. Hopefully the embarrassment you have caused Illinois will be remedied when you are up for reelection.

With disgust;
