Patriot Retort: Odd isn’t it? This sudden reverence the Left has for (some) men in uniform? Twitter was awash with typically anti-military ResistanceLOL members sputtering with indignant rage over anyone daring to criticize Alexander “It’s Lieutenant Colonel, please!” Vindman.
The collective “How DARE you!” is deafening, really.
Apparently we’re supposed to accept every bitchy complaint Vindman had as the gospel truth because A) he wore his uniform and has a purple heart and B) he passed “multiple background checks.”
“Occupy Democrats” has a badly-made meme floating around bragging that the impeachment witnesses “passed multiple background checks to ensure their loyalty to America.”
You know who else passed multiple background checks?
Former U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency officer Ron Rockwell Hansen. Hansen pleaded guilty to spying for China in March of this year.
Something tells me passing a background check is not proof positive that an American will remain loyal to America.
Take Aldrich Ames. He was working for the Central Intelligence Agency when he became a KGB mole. In 1994, he was convicted of espionage and is serving a life sentence.
We can’t forget FBI agent Robert Hanssen who was spying for the Soviet Union for over twenty years before he was arrested.
But wait! Here’s one more!
