National Guardsman Attacked by Leftist Douchebags

Words have consequences and these types of attacks are inevitable given the rhetoric of the increasingly not-so-fringe left .

At some point saying "I support the troops" while simultaneously jumping on every allegation against them that they routinely "massacre" civilians reaches the breaking point of psychological dissonance.

A rational and moral person cannot support troops which are baby killers. At some point, either you will reject the premise that our troops are bloodthirsty killers or you will hate them.

The victim's name is Alexander Powell and he has been instructed by his superior officers not to discuss the matter any further with the media.

KIROTV:

The Pierce County Sheriff's Department is searching for five people who allegedly attacked a uniformed National Guardsmen walking along 138th Street in Parkland Tuesday afternoon.

The soldier was walking to a convenience store when a sport utility vehicle pulled up alongside him and the driver asked if he was in the military and if he had been in any action.

The driver then got out of the vehicle, displayed a gun and shouted insults at the victim. Four other suspects exited the vehicle and knocked the soldier down, punching and kicking him.

“And during the assault the suspects called him a baby killer. At that point they got into the car and drove off and left him on the side of the road,” Detective Ed Troyer with the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department told KIRO 7 Eyewitness News.

The suspects were driving a black Chevy Suburban-type SUV.

Hat tip: Editor in Pajamas who points out that the douchebags asked the victim if he had seen any action. The inference being that he was attacked because the SOBs actually thought that he was a baby killer.

I know it is hard for some of you to grasp, but people hate the United States and its soldiers because they actually believe we are the bad guys. I heard Howard Zinn on Dennis Prager's radio show yesterday. If you only believed half of what Zinn has to say, you'd spit on our soldiers too.

All the suspects are described as in their early 20s, many wearing red caps. Why all the red hats? Could it be.......
