Some of the people who like to claim to live by the mantra “don’t blame an entire group of people for the actions of the few” are doing just that again, and all without even knowing who exactly was carrying a confederate flag in Washington, D.C., on Sunday. We know it wasn’t the above patriot, but the Dems don’t care who they malign in the process of their broad-brush smear campaign.

Reaction from the Left came about so abrupt and simultaneously you’d almost think it had been coordinated in advance. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is certainly wasting no time:

Those who sign the petition are taken to this page:

dccc

Send money to the Dems now to help them protect against threats to America like this:

Here’s the unintentionally funny tweet of the day in regards to the DCCC’s petition site. Those who have been following the HealthCare.gov story will find the humor here:

That site wouldn’t be operated by the Obamacare people, would it?

    In all the video and pictures I saw today, I missed seeing that Confederate flag somehow. How were they able to not only find it but capitalize on it? It’s almost like they knew it was going to be there all along.

    • GaryTheBrave

      If it does turn out the Confed flag holder is a DNC plant then that means the DNC and the DCCC are anti-vet.

      As an aside doesn’t the initials DCCC kind of remind you of CCCP?

      • Matthew Koch

        Too late. They became anti-vet a long time ago.

        • Tel-Jonah Stern

          Definitely not pro-vets.

      • M C

        I doubt the dems planted anyone. They just expected it I think and were prepared to seize on the photo opp. If you YouTube tea party rallies or tea party rally with confederate flag. There is no shortage if footage through the years. I think the smarter argument to make is a few bad apples don’t spoil the bunch =)

      • http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (the true one)

        The DNC does not care if a Confederate flag was there or not, they only need to photo shop something together or just claim one was spotted and then go on the hyper offensive.

        Remember – to the left, truth is always an option best avoided.

      • rennyangel2

        Oops. I posted the same before I read yours. Most be great minds.

      • Republicanvet

        There is no need to identify him as a plant. The DCCC and many other prog leftists are anti-vet since it is in line with their anti-American beliefs.

        They have been for many years.

        Any prog leftists offended by that…tough sh!t. Try calling out those on your side that are anti-vetanti-American.

    • M C

      I think you are right about them knowing it would be there. I was telling other fella in this thread, if you YouTube tea party rally and confederate flag there is tons of footage through the years. The dccc just probably figured it would be there and were ready to capitalize on the photo opp.

      • rennyangel2

        Demonstrate because I have been at many rallies and never seen one.

        • M C

          Hey… Just do what I said earlier YouTube search it. There are hundreds of videos through the years. Right or wrong left or right, it does exist. It is what it is. I was saying earlier the best argument back is to say a few bad apples don’t spoil the bunch. But to say it doesn’t exist is irresponsible and untrue.

          • Texan357

            The burden of proof is yours. Also, “YouTube” is not a verb.

          • M C

            Hello Texan… Sorry I’m not that invested in this particular battle to start posting links. If you would like to do your own research there is enough footage to watch all day. Yes you are right YouTube is not a verb, but you know what I meant, same thing as when people use Google as a verb.

    • rennyangel2

      A Demorat stooger prob. infiltrated with it–not enough happening to get exercised about racially.

    • RblDiver

      Well, if you think about their lack of proof of people spitting on the black senators as they were going to enact Obamacare, at least here they have a picture. In their minds, since it is infinite more percentage “proof” of racism, they have to give it corresponding air time (remember how much they did about the “spit,” now multiply it by 100 at least).

  • John Ansell

    Proof that the guy holding the Confederate flag was a plant. OFA for sure.

  • M C

    Seems to be working for the dems, the dccc has had their best fundraising day of the year since shutdown, and are bringing in a lot of money right now.

    • Matthew Koch

      The country is in worse shape than I thought if treating troops like sh-t causes them to receive MORE money.

      • M C

        I dont think it has anything to do with the vets, it’s been through the duration of shutdown. I think it’s happening bc the general public has been blaming the hell out of the GOP for this… You see that all-time low approval rating? Yikes!

        • Matthew Koch

          Can I blame the Republicans for my bad haircut and my flat tire too?

          After all, it must be their fault!

          • M C

            I see what you’re saying, but it’s such a tough spot to be in, regardless of who is really at fault, the GOP seems to be taking it on the chin. When the RNC saw those approval ratings Thursday seems like the establishment has been begging for a deal.

          • Matthew Koch

            You’re right, but they get blamed for everything anyway. Bending over an grabbing the ankles isn’t helping them. They might as well start fighting back since leftist will try and crucify them anyway.

          • M C

            Such a weird spot to be in though. I’m no betting man, but if I was to wager on an outcome, I think the establishment will ask Obama for a bend on something small so they look like they at least got something. Obama smells blood though, he can see the polls favor the dems in all this. He may give them something small, but not for 6 week CR. Going to have to be longer.

          • GoldsteinsBook

            Event planners invited birther Larry Klayman to speak who, to no one’s surprise, claimed Obama was a Muslim.

            “”I call upon all of you to wage a second American nonviolent revolution, to use civil disobedience, and to demand that this president leave town, to get up, to put the Quran down, to get up off his knees, and to figuratively come out with his hands up.”

            The DCCC would be foolish not to use this to their advantage.
            If Senate Democrats shared the stage with Fred Phelps while an audience member waved a Confederate flag, do you think Republicans would refrain from capitalizing on the self-inflicted wound?

          • ObamaFail

            And if they did, libs would be screaming about how unfair that is because they’d say that ONE person doesn’t represent all of them. If only libs would allow the same standards they expect them to be treated with to be used for Conservatives.

          • ObamaFail

            Only because the liberal media is in Obama’s back pocket and is in constant spin mode to make him look good no matter what he does. The shut down only happened because the Dems wanted to save Obamacare, and the shut down is still in place because the Dems refuse to work with the GOP. And yes, even CNN is in Obama’s back pocket, seeing as how Amber Lyon, who got fired from CNN for speaking out against it, blew the whistle on CNN killing stories at the White House’s request.

        • Thomas, Snarkmaster General

          The opinion polls show one thing and one thing only: what the media want us to believe.

          Yet, the optics coming out of the shutdown make Republicans look GOOD.

        • ObamaFail

          Only because you pea-brained morons listen to the mainstream media. Harry Reid caused the shut down by killing the CR that would have prevented a shut down

  • Matthew Koch

    If you slime veterans in order to try and score political points you are evil.

  • lesterwink23

    This is coming from the same party that tried to blame Mitt Romney for a guy’s wife dying from cancer. There is literally no depth to which these vermin won’t sink

  • tops116 ✓Quipper

    At what point will the DCCC demand Obama apologize for erecting Barrycades around war memorials and for Reid’s stubborn refusal to okay funding for cancer treatment? Oh right, they’re too busy condemning phantom, “Democrats like Robert Byrd sure were big on them” Confederate flags.

  • M C

    This is as weird a situation as I have seen in a while, going to watch how it plays out. It seems now the organizers of the million vet march are condemning Cruz, Palin, and Lee for ruining their message by politicizing the event. Posted a message on their website and everything.

    • Republicanvet

      It is unfortunate that they would say that…particularly since that is what the media is pushing…hard…to discredit the whole event.
      No matter what, the media was going to smear this event. Can’t have Barky embarrassed.

  • $2634156

    I am tired of the slams at the Confederate flag which represents STATES RIGHTS over an out of control federal government fo many who know history and haven’t been tainted by historicl rewrites. The stars and bars has NOTHING to do with “hate” but the Dems sure want you to go there.

    • M C

      It’s one of those things that through time can change, look up the original meaning of the swastika. The Nazis ruined that forever. Though the stars and bars are no swastika, they are still a reminder of a sad and shameful period in this country where some felt that other humans were beneath them and should live a life in captivity to enrich the economy of a certain part of the country. Though that may not have been the intent of the stars and bars, the most evil uprising in the history of our nation chose to use it to represent what they believe.

      • Joel A. Edge

        I agree that symbols change over time. In the Germany in the seventies, we had a battle flag flying in the commo section. In the eighties in Jordan we had the battle flag tied to our deuce-and-a-half. White guys, black guys….it was a symbol of battle and we didn’t really care. Now we get told all those who served were racists and trying to promote slavery. I think it’s not so much symbols change, it’s that people try to redefine symbols for their own advantage. For some reason, all this started after the Democrats lost the south during the Reagan years. Coincidence? Probably not.

      • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

        Actually, they are putting down a Flag they once considered their “National Symbol” of the Confederacy… Yes, slavery was involved, but it was the people serving under this flag who attacked Union (American) Troops at Ft. Sumter… Just sayin’… Jawamax 8<{D}

    • justlittlolme

      That’s why socialists go into vitrolic overspew when they see the Stars and Bars. It’s a reminder of a time when the People at large knew our country was an association of Independent States, not one huge, consolidated government run by elitists in Washington D.C.

    It’s time for people to start saying two words to Leftists when they get outraged over stuff like this.

    “So what?”

    Seriously, we are on the verge of a major economic crisis because we’re spending more than we take in, and Leftists get their panties in a wad over a FLAG? Seems to me the priorities are a little out of whack, and it’s time to show the Left that we have bigger priorities than reliving a war that ended slavery in this country.

    • ObamaFail

      Leftist morons think that spending trillion dollar deficits every year is okay, because they are too stupid to understand basic economics. They think as long as they get their freebies, everything will be okay, and they don’t care how other people are effected by Obama’s “spend, spend, spend” policies. The libs will be the first to riot when an economic collapse happens, because their freebies would stop.

    • ObamaFail

      Because they’ve dug into his past and can’t find anything to smear him with, they can’t smear him with his voting record in the Senate because his record shows he’s always had America’s interest at heart and not his own agenda. So they will find any tiny detail they can find to attack him with. Because he’s already proven to be more caring about the effect bad policies have on the average American than the current President.

  • http://jjchandler.wordpress.com/ Jerry Chandler

    You guys are too funny.

    Nothing you link to for the DCCC mentions the vets. It all mentions Cruz and the Tea Party by name. That would be accurate since they’re the ones who left their little “summit” and hijacked the the scene for their own little spectacle and posturing for the cameras. But, no, nothing in any fundraising mentions the vets or their planned event.

    But I can understand how you might be confused. While writing an article about how some people only claim to live by the mantra of “don’t blame an entire group of people for the actions of the few” while doing it here despite the fact that your linked sources don’t show that, Twitchy in fact links the two events, the original vets march and Cruz and crew acting like asses, as though they’re the same thing.

    See that little headline up in the corner there? This one?

    “‘Shut down the White House!’ Million Vets March protests outside the Spite House [pics]”

    So Twitchy covers Cruz and crew and their actions as if they’re the vets, Confederate flag photos prominently displayed in the Twitchy coverage, but the has a hissy at someone else who isn’t doing what in fact Twitchy is doing while claiming that they are in fact doing it. You guys are so cute.

    Look, you can try and have it both ways all you want and then try and pretend that the words “Ted Cruz” and “Tea Party” magically translate to “Million Vets March” in the alternate reality bubble you’re constructing here, but don’t expect the reality based community to play along with it.
