Dianne Feinstein, a senator from California, was trying to bring history to her state with the acquiring of the WWII war ship USS Iowa. She helped to make available $3 million, for the ship that took part in defeating the Japanese, to be docked in San Francisco and be stationed as a monument. A very good thing to do for the city of San Francisco, at least to people with respect for their country and half a brain in their head. There is no city as liberal as SF; so what pray tell came up in acquiring this historic ship as a museum. “Gee, don’t tell me, the crazy left brought up Iraq. No, I don’t believe it Mr. Opinionnation; the left never displays idiocy to the level in which they will deny the importance of winning WW2. I just won’t accept it Mr. Opinionnation, this country is not made up of hypocritical, misguided Liberals who hate their country, that can never be.”
Well son, unfortunately that’s the type of ilk we deal with on a daily basis here in the great US of A. So, what happened to this floating monument to American Sacrifice and courage? Well, it was voted down 8-3 by the city supervisors. For what reason…The war in Iraq and the military stance on gays. “If I was going to commit any money in recognition of war, then it should be toward peace, given what are war is in Iraq now.” Supervisor Ross Mirkirami said.
That’s what he actually said. If any money should go toward war it should go to peace. I don’t know what exactly that means but I guess that it means Bush is evil. I don’t think the left understands that, in most cases, war brings peace. I honestly believe they have lost all sense of reality. OUR FOUNDING FATHERS WOULD BE ASHAMED. Please visit this link to understand just how historic this ship is. USS Iowa. Feinstein, to her credit, called it a very “Petty decision. “This isn’t the San Francisco I know and love,” she said.
Some extreme Liberals want to fight terrorism by abolishing our military. A partial transcript of Gerardo Sandoval, another of the San Francisco Supervisors that voted against honoring the USS Iowa, on Hannity&Colmes. Watch the video here: Expose the Left
Sean Hannity: you said to me you don’t want a symbol of war in the harbor.
Crazy Liberal Gerardo Sandoval: That’s Right.
SH: I guess this is just a difference of philosophy. That symbol of war that beat back the forces of fascism and imperial Japan and Nazism; that’s really a symbol of peace. Why would you see it as a symbol of war when it defended liberty and freedom?
CL: well, it did do that but it also is a warship. Its got guns on it and it fires things…SF is where we signed the UN charter; created the UN; there are many ways to honor veterans and their sacrifices.
SH: “Do you think America should unilaterally disarm, should we give up our tools of war?”
CL: “I would say yes, we should. We should invest our money in something else-”
Alan Colmes: Let me ask you a question: should we not have a military?
CL: I don’t think we should have a military…what good has it done us in the last five years.
AC: …But to say we should not have a military; it’s absolutely absurd; it’s incredible!
CL: Welcome to San Francisco.
AC: What do you want us to defend ourselves with?
CL: Well, you got cops; you got the coast guard there’s lots of different things.
