Duckworth slams Collins's comments: 'I left parts of my body in Iraq fighting terrorists'

Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.), a former Army lieutenant colonel who lost both her legs in Iraq, ripped Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) Thursday for comments he made the day before that Democrats are "in love with terrorists."

"I'm not going to dignify that with a response. I left parts of my body in Iraq fighting terrorists. I don't need to justify myself to anyone," Duckworth said on "CNN Right Now."

Collins made the remark on Fox Business's "Lou Dobbs Tonight" Wednesday, in response to Democratic criticism of Trump's handling of the killing of Iranian Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad.

-snip-

"They mourn Soleimani more than they mourn our Gold Star families, who are the ones who suffered under Soleimani. That's a problem," Collins added.

"I'm disgusted. I would never, ever use Gold Star families, military men and women or their families as any pawn in any political game. Let me tell you something: This issue is about America's national security. It is not a partisan political issue," Duckworth said.

"One day, our nationís flag will drape my coffin, just as it did my Dadís and will my husbandís and brotherís. I will always stand on these legs for the flag and anthem, but it was ALSO my honor to defend peopleís right to free speech..... including those who choose to #TakeAKnee to express outrage at the glaring disparity in how Americans of different races are treated"

Sen. Duckworth stands taller than Rep. Collins.

I notice, also, that Collins hides out with Fox to bad-mouth Democrats. Can't say that to the Senator's face, Doug?

Seriously, these vile fucksticks have been doing this shit since the accention of hate fucking radio 40 fucking years ago.

Democrats still pretend that we are playing by some antiquated rules of decorum.

Some Democrat has to take one for the team and beat the ever loving shit out of this Collins dipshit... and make sure the MSM cameras are live rolling at the time.

What Collins said was nothing less than fucking terrorism.

He needs to get his snotty ass beat live on fucking breaking news.

Another blast from the past: Moron doesn't like people who get captured - a shot at John McCain, Captain, USN (Ret) and POW.

I don't have a list; I have a file drawer full of Moron's "love of armed service personnel".

Rump and his flunkies inflicted on her during the 'condolence' call.

He knows better than the generals, is better trained than the troops. It's almost like he was in the military, coz he went to a military themed academy. Turned over VA control to his Mar a Lago shadow cabinet.

This former TI would like to have had that creep on the drill pad for 10 minutes. I'd have him on the concrete in the fetal position. It's a dream I have.

I'm sorry he missed out on serving in Nam.

But I'll bet people who would have had to serve with him aren't sorry he wasn't there.

He'd either fuck up a combat mission and get people killed or fucked up paper work at Hq Tan Son which the victims are still trying to unravel. Off duty time, he'd be working illegals deals at the local knocking shops and bars.

Trump's 'deals' would put naive two striper noobs in the deep kimchi or minimum Art 15 kimchi and the creep would laugh about it at the O-Club. "Losers!"

13. So I took a peek at Wikipedia:

In the late 1980s, Collins served two years in the United States Navy, as a navy chaplain. After the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Collins joined the United States Air Force Reserve Command, where he presently serves as a chaplain (lieutenant colonel).[7] As a member of the 94th Airlift Wing at Dobbins Air Reserve Base in Marietta, Georgia, Collins was deployed to Balad Air Base for five months in 2008, during the Iraq War.


I'm astonished he has any military background at all, because the sort of Republican scumbag who would talk that kind of shit is a sniveling chickenhawk nine times out of ten. Oh, but hey, a chaplain pulling five whole months in the Sunni Triangle! Daaamn, bruh, thank you for your "service!"

35. Asshole Collins reflecting another asshole's remarks

"I saw him," Trump said of the speech. "Mr. Khan) was very emotional and probably looked like a nice guy to me. His wife Ö if you look at his wife, she was standing there. She had nothing to say."

"She probably, maybe she wasn't allowed to have anything to say. You tell me," Trump continued. "But a plenty of people have written that. She was extremely quiet, and it looked like she had nothing to say. A lot of people have said that."

Notice his trademark weaseling "probably looked like a nice guy to me" and "You tell me" and "plenty of people"
and " A lot of people". Taking no responsibility , the vague "people" / "A lot of people".
