From the 01.12.2012 edition of KFTK's The Dana Show:
Adam Shriver at the St. Louis Activist Hub has more on Loesch's venom:
CNN "political analyst" Dana Loesch, on the other hand, apparently doesn't care at all if these actions were directly working against the mission of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan; instead, she cheered for it to fuel the unhinged Muslim hatred that has become a staple of modern day right-wing media. On her show, she gave the marines in question "one million cool points" and said that she would "drop trow" and "do it too." She ended by saying: "Do I have a problem with that as a citizen of the United States? No, I don't."
Loesch's rhetoric echoes that of rabid Islamophobe Atlas Shrugged blogger Geller's ridiculously offensive tripe regarding the Marines' urination of Taliban corpses.
Hamas-tied CAIR, once again sides with jihadists against the US military. Always. Apparently they are a "Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization" for jihadists and Taliban and Al-Shabaab, Hamas, Hezb'allah, et al).Ms. Pamela Geller, YOU are the one that's the lunatic, not CAIR.
CAIR has whipped itself up into an Islamic frenzy because a surfaced that appears to show US combat gear urinating on several dead jihadis.
I love these Marines. Perhaps this is the infidel interpretation of the Islamic ritual of washing and preparing the body for burial.
Here are the REAL facts (NOT the propaganda from the likes of Loesch and Geller) about the shameful act of corpse urination by some members of the US Marines.
A video that surfaced Wednesday that allegedly depicts a group of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan urinating on corpses that they called “dead Taliban” could complicate nascent peace talks in the decade-long war there. The act portrayed on the video faceduniversal condemnation from the military, politicians, and the Afghan president Hamid Karzai.
With the U.S. expected to begin talks soon with the Afghan Taliban insurgency, all parties were quick to distance themselves from the act. The Marines said in a statement that the actions “are not consistent with our core values and are not indicative of the character of the Marines in our Corps.” In a separate statement, the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) said a criminal probe was being launched and added:
This disrespectful act is inexplicable and not in keeping with the high moral standards we expect of coalition forces.
ISAF strongly condemns the actions depicted in the video, which appear to have been conducted by a small group of U.S. individuals, who apparently are no longer serving in Afghanistan.
Not everyone, however, was saddened by the events. Anti-Muslim activist Pam Geller wrote in favor of the incident. “I love these Marines,” she said, adding, “Perhaps this is the infidel interpretation of the Islamic ritual of washing and preparing the body for burial.” A former Republican National Committee researcher tweeted wondering, “this is a story?” He added: “I could care less. Liberal media at work.” Michael Goldfarb, a neoconseravtive Republican operative (a former McCain campaign spokesman), lobbyist and, as of recently, chairman of a new conservative online media venture, retweeted the comments from the RNC researcher.
Al Jazeera English:
The US Marine Corps says it will investigate a video posted on the internet which appears to show US soldiers in Afghanistan urinating on corpses.
In a statement issued on Wednesday after the footage came to light, the corps said the matter would be fully investigated.
"While we have not yet verified the origin or authenticity of this video, the actions portrayed are not consistent with our core values and are not indicative of the character of the marines in our corps," the statement said.
John Kirby, a Pentagon spokesman, said: "Regardless of the circumstances or who is in the video, this is... egregious, disgusting behavior, unacceptable for anyone in uniform.
"It turned my stomach," he added.
The video, which was first posted on the Live Leak website, shows four men in military uniforms urinating on three bloodied bodies on the ground, apparently aware that they were being filmed.
One of them jokes: "Have a nice day, buddy." The other makes a lewd joke about a shower.
The multinational security force in Afghanistan, ISAF, as well as the country's government, strongly condemned the actions portrayed in the video.
'Trained to spread horror'In a statement, the Taliban said the incident was "against all international human rights" but "not the only example of the horrific actions that the Americans have done in Afghanistan".
"American soldiers are trained to spread horror and this is one of the examples," the Taliban said.
However, the group's statement added that the incident would not affect negotiations with the US after US officials said Washington would send an envoy to Afghanistan to prepare the ground for direct peace talks.
About 20,000 marines are deployed in Afghanistan, mostly in Kandahar and Helmand provinces in the south of the war-ravaged country.
The video could aggravate anti-US sentiment in Afghanistan after a decade of a war that has seen other cases of abuse.
The US military has been prosecuting soldiers from its army's 5th Stryker Brigade on charges of murdering unarmed Afghan civilians while deployed in 2010 in Kandahar province.
In that case, photographs published last March by two magazines - Der Spiegel and Rolling Stone - showed soldiers posing with the bloodied corpse of an Afghan boy they had just killed.
A Muslim civil rights group in the US condemned the alleged desecration of corpses in a letter to Leon Panetta, the US defence secretary.
"Any guilty parties must be punished to the full extent allowed by the Uniform Code of Military Justice and by relevant American laws," the Council on American-Islamic Relations said in the letter, a copy of which was sent to media organisations.
Memo to the people that are cheering it on: DO NOT urinate on ANYBODY's dead corpses. It is sick, disrespectful, and offensive to do it.
This type of rhetoric is reason enough for Emmis execs to suspend and/or fire her, but since her station's manager is a hardcore Republican, it won't happen..
