DNC staffers so out of touch with the military that they mistake foreign vets for U.S. vets

The photo: All vets look alike to Democrats

The hipsters who staff the DNC are apparently so out of touch with actual U.S. servicemen and servicewomen that they just picked out any old photo of old folks wearing uniforms and slapped it onto the site. According to Military Times, which broke the above story, the photo gaffe photo remained up for several weeks.

Finally, after someone over there read the Military Times story, the DNC swapped out the elderly Poles for a photo of Obama with some real U.S. veterans–from the 2nd Ranger Infantry Company.

“’We thank Military Times for bringing this to our attention and have now fixed the photograph on our website,’ DNC spokesman Eric Walker said in a statement.

“’Whether it’s passing a new GI Bill, tax credits for hiring veterans, or reducing homelessness among veterans, the Democratic Party’s commitment to our nation’s heroes is unwavering.’”

Uh-huh. But the ironic glasses-wearing DNC staffers still couldn’t get it right:

“It also boasts that Democrats have ‘worked to provide additional resources to the Veterans Administration’ — the former name of the Department of Veterans Affairs, and another language misstep frequently pointed out by veterans groups.”

    During the first Gulf War against Iraq, a young American reporter was interviewing a military officer.

    As part of his explanation, the officer drew a parallel to World War II.

    The reporter mused a moment, and replied “World War Two… there was another one, wasn’t there.”

    There simply is no hope for these people. No wonder they crave power, and association with the powerful. Without that leverage, they’d have to apply themselves and earn an honest living doing something the world values.

    (And let us remember the Poles. Polish veterans from WWII stand tall. The Poles in the military and the underground bought their dignity with their blood and their bones.)

  2. This looks like something you’d see on the Duffel Blog!
