GOP Congressman Pays Price For Opposing War

by Josh Kraushaar - August 22nd, 2007 - The Politico

Onslow County GOP Chairman Ron Cherubini has refused to endorse [Walter] Jones for reelection and is actively supporting his opponent, [Joe] McLaughlin, even though party chairmen normally remain neutral in intra-party fights.

Craven County Republican Party chair Michael Speciale is still supporting Jones but admitted he might lose if the primary was held today.

"I've talked to a lot of people and I haven't talked to anyone that's still supporting him [Walter Jones]," said Speciale. "Everywhere I go people get upset with me because I'm still supporting him. They think I'm on the wrong side. Here's a man who served us well most of these years. We disagree with him right now and we're ready to kick him out to pasture."

The issue which divides Jones, and most democrats, from the minority of Americans (at this point) who see them as appeasers and traitors, is the failure to appreciate that the war against Islamofascism is truly a fight to the death. A great many Democrats and liberal independents have told me I am simply wrong to believe that leaving Iraq and getting out of this war is a big deal.

To them it is NOT appeasement. To them it is NOT treason. To them it is NOT gutlessly running from a war to destroy western civilization. To them Al Qaeda is just Afghanistan. To them Al Qaeda is just Osama Bin Laden. To them Al Qaeda is just a minor nuisance which got lucky on 9/11 and we can safely ignore them now.

They do not see that their willingness to "cut and run" will empower the Islamofascists. They are unable to conceive of the nuclear holocaust that will start the final battle for control of our nation. They do not see themselves as aligning themselves with our enemies, but simply ignoring enemies that they cannot perceive are truly a threat. When the blood bath in our streets starts over the nuclear holocaust that is coming, I don't think half of them will be able even at that point to understand the rage that many feel at their treachery.

"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke

You can tell the democrats what is coming, but only they can pull their heads out of the sand long enough to decide if they are willing to listen. Right now, they are not willing to listen and it makes many of us want to shake them in rage. I pray that Walter Jones is defeated so that we don't have to settle this in the streets.
