NYT Takes Protestors at Their Word But Not Wounded Soldier

I can't get into too much detail as I am at work and truly swamped but I had to get my 2 cents in about this ridiculous butt-kissing homage to the protesters from Saturday. Believe me, I'll have more to say this evening...

One of our heroes, Joshua Sparling, who lost his leg in Iraq AND was subjected to a hate-filled card wishing him death while recuperating at Walter Reed was at the counter-protest with the FReepers on Saturday. Joshua, a true American hero, was spit at by the same moronic a-holes that claim to support the troops just not the mission. Surprisingly the NYT mentioned this way down in their little salute to the anti-American fools. BUT this is how they described Joshua...

There were a few tense moments, however, including an encounter involving Joshua Sparling, 25, who was on crutches and who said he was a corporal with the 82nd Airborne Division and lost his right leg below the knee in Ramadi, Iraq. Mr. Sparling spoke at a smaller rally held earlier in the day at the United States Navy Memorial, and voiced his support for the administration’s policies in Iraq.

"WHO SAID?" What - they don't take him at his word? They take every piece of human excrement and parade their sob-story around like it was gospel (i.e. fake Katrina victims) but imply that Joshua was possibly a poseur? Please... you want a fake vet, go ask some of the ones quoted in the article as "Iraq war vets" for their papers. See how many of them haul ass. Give me a freakin' break.

I'll be back later to have another tirade about the backgrounds about some of those quoted in the Times story. Talk about FAKE!
