More on that Dick in the Senate

Democrat Senator Dick Durbin, who compared US troops to Nazi's, PolPot and the KGB on the Senate floor yesterday, refuses to apologize. How much of this are we going to take?
CHICAGO Illinois- Senator Dick Durbin says he won't apologize for comments
comparing American interrogators at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to Nazis and
Soviet gulags.News of the Democrat's comparison created a buzz around the
Internet today, fueled by sound bites of yesterday's Senate floor speech on
radio talk shows. By this afternoon, Illinois Republican Party Chairman Andy
McKenna asked Durbin to apologize.

Durbin says the Bush administration should apologize for abandoning the Geneva Conventions.

Dick and his fellow Democrats are woefully unprepared to deal with the war on terror if they are still hoping to give Geneva protections to those who clearly don't deserve them. This has gone from dissent to disgrace. Democrats wonder why people don't trust them on national security? Please.

And who is this guy who we so brutally tortured, according to Durbin? He was the 20th hijacker from the September 11 plot. Our crimes, according to Dick, we turned down the AC and made him shiver. I wish I was kidding. Here is the account of prisoner abuse that has a Democrat Senator comparing our troops to Nazi's,
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.

That's it folks, your US Nazi's at work, fiddling with the AC.

As Indiana Republican Congressman Steve Buyer, a decorated Gulf War veteran, said on WRKO this morning, Dick Durbin, Nancy Pelosi and Ted Kennedy represent the "hug a thug" crowd. I wish more people in positions of power would call Dick's like Durbin on the reckless use of language. Hell, I wish EVERYONE would call him on it. I know I will by dialing his office at (202) 224-2152.

Recent guest on Pundit Review Radio, James Taranto of OpinionJournal's Best of the Web, had this to say about Dick Durbin,
We are fighting an enemy that murdered 3,000 innocent people on American
soil 3 1/2 years ago and would murder millions more if given the
chance--and according to Dick Durbin, our soldiers are the Nazis.

I have three books detailing what the Nazi's and the Soviets did to prisoners. Yes, throwing them in coolers and in overheated rooms was a pretty normal occurence. But then they shot them, broke their bones, starved them, gave them no medicine, pulled out their fingernails, etc. We make them cold for a couple of hours and then give them mediical treatment and give them a smoothie.

So yes, at face value his statement that temperature manipulation is what the Nazi's did to prisoners is correct. Way way off the mark though in reality. This type of gross misrepresentation should result in an immediate apology, and anyone who votes for him again is deranged. This is sort of like me saying "our soldiers use bullets to shoot people, just like the Nazi's used bullets to shoot people." The Nazi regime is the worst that western civilization has ever done, and to compare what we are doing (especially to an enemy that cuts off hostages heads slowly) with Nazi's is criminal.

Now about Gitmo. I have no problem closing the base. It is an expensive base to run and the cuban threat is silly. Bring all the terrrorists over to a nice prison in Alaska. Close Gitmo, but make sure the work is still getting done.

I weep for my political party. When did being a liberal mean you had to be retarded? I am a social liberal who believes the government has a duty to help those who can't help themselves (bussing for the handicapped, low income housing, funding schools everywhere equally, etc.). I believe that big business should be held accountable and not get big tax breaks if they don't treat employees right and keep jobs in the US. I also belive that the US is the best counrtry in the world. Our army is underfunded. The UN is a joke. and criminals should be never heard from again after one violent crime.

Well said. I don't understand why rank-and-file Democrats stay so quiet while their party leaders say such unfair, destructive things.
