[September 30, 2018] Army Vet gets mixed up in politics today as he calls out the character of Democratic U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut for being a fake Vietnam Veteran and a coward.
A politician is to lying what Wisconsin is to cheese? Some people lie more than others but there is nothing more gut-wrenching and disgusting than a senior leader who is willing to steal the valor of real heroes. U.S. Senator Blumenthal of Connecticut regularly lied about his military service, claiming that not only was he a Vietnam veteran but that he also served with bravery and distinction in combat. Nothing is more sick than a man who claims something of great honor for himself, announces it to the world, and brags about it but is not deserving. It doesn’t matter that he apologized because he got caught. Congressman Richard Blumenthal is a fake and a coward.
When is an apology not an apology? There are many who say that this is no big deal since all politicians exaggerate and they are often misunderstood. So what’s the big deal? “Little Richard,” as I call him, was a U.S. Marine Reservist in Washington, D.C., but repeatedly said, “We have learned something important since the days that I served in Vietnam.” Hard to misunderstand “I served in Vietnam.” There is only one thing to say to those who give him a pass on his duplicity and deceit; I pity you for your self-inflicted but deserved mental disorder. We’ve all been around people who repeatedly lie. That’s what Little Richard did. We also know that there is something in their mental makeup that keeps them lying even when caught. You can never, ever trust them. Like Jane Fonda, to the day he dies, he must be reminded that he is not just untrustworthy but that he betrayed the men and women who served in Vietnam.
A paragon of truth? Little Richard likes to set himself apart from the rest of us by holding himself up as a paragon of truth and justice. Give me a break will ya! Please don’t lecture us about truth. At the U.S. Supreme Court hearings with Judge Brett Kavanaugh (and yes, I watched the whole comedy), Blumenthal said some stupid Latin phrase. My friends tell me that it means if you lie about one thing you may infer you lie about everything. Well, duh! I’m told that Congressman Tom Cotton tweeted that Little Richard lied for years about serving in Vietnam which is all you need to know about his courage and honesty. I would have used more expletives but Cotton gets his point across anyway. For regular readers of my column, I won’t have to remind you that General Satterfield edits out all the worst cusswords.
A Fake and a coward? Senator Blumenthal, you are a coward, a wussy, a lazy self-centered, and overrated Congressman from a state with an honorable history. Connecticut is where several Revolutionary War battles occurred, where men like you and me died for a great cause, where ordinary people struggled to make a decent living, and where honor, selflessness, and courage matter in war. Blumenthal turned his back on all of us and continues to flip-off our currently serving troops and veterans. Is there something retarded with the brain of Connecticut voters who keep electing this dweeb or do they just want their government handouts and screw everybody else? No matter, I don’t plan to visit the state anyway. Oh, could it be worse? Yes, Blumenthal, you could be U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse.
