Kos: Proud of “Screw Them”

• Views: 3,539

Expose the Left has video of Markos Moulitsas “Screw Them” Zuniga appearing on CNN’s Reliable Sources, offering the lamest possible excuse for his foul comment about murdered US citizens: Kos: Republicans Upset About “Screw Them” Remark Because It Got People “Engaged In Politics”.

KURTZ: Now as you know, “National Review’s” Byron York resurrected a quote from you, this was after four American contractors were killed in Iraq in 2004. The quote was, I feel nothing over the death of mercenaries. They are there to wage war for profits, screw them. You dealt with this at the time and you expressed regret. My question is, are you prepared for the extra scrutiny that comes with this higher profile you have, whether you particularly want to be out there as the symbol of the blogging movement or not?

MOULITSAS: Absolutely. To me in a way it’s funny that they have not updated their talking points in two years. And so they want to keep resurrecting an old quote, there’s nothing I can do about it. What I can do is I can say the fact is the reason, the context for that quote was solidarity with my brothers and sisters in arms, Marines and soldiers. I wore combat boots. I served during the first Gulf war and people are making a choice between private armies and mercenaries. I make my choice. I stand behind our men and women in uniform and I’m not going to apologize for that. But they’re going to keep resurrecting that and that’s fine. That’s what they do. They smear, they attack, they don’t like the fact that people are getting engaged in politics, that people are getting involved. There are too many turf to protect so they’ll keep doing that and that’s fine. I can fight back.

This is the prototype “progressive” response when called on their mean-spiritedness and hatred; they paint themselves as victims, under attack for their courageous beliefs and mad skillz at speaking truth to the power of THE MAN!

Although he now proudly refuses to apologize, “Screw Them” Kos tried to hide his remarks soon after they were noticed (by LGF and others), and he’s still doing it.

To see what I mean, here’s the discussion thread where the comment is posted: Daily Kos :: Corpses on the Cover. Scroll about halfway down the page and you’ll find it, with the title “Every death should be on the front page.”

The date next to Kos’s name is supposed to be a “permalink” to that comment and the ones responding to it. Try the other permalinks on that page. They all work as designed.

But if you click the link next to Kos’s name … it takes you to a completely unrelated page. This is a deliberate “redirect,” put in place to make it impossible to link directly to the “Screw them” comment.

He’s proud of this, eh? Strange way to show it.
