Ted Rall: American Troops = Suicide Bombers

Yes folks, he did it again. Cartoonist Ted Rall is calling our American troops, suicide bomber.

If you can stomach it, check out this cartoon.

Clearly, this is hate speech.
So, does Ted Rall speak for the Democratic party in general? Is this how they all feel?
I know what you are thinking- How could I possible ask these questions?
Well, it is simple. Just recently, a Democrat right here in Kenosha County, stated that Ann Coulter and Rush Limbaugh were the faces of the Republican party. They even went so far as to ask why we do not denouce Limbaugh and Coulter.(the answer to this question is that conservatives do denounce their bad behaviour)
So I ask- Is this the face of the Democrat Party?
I could make a clear and sustainable argument that yes- Ted Rall is speaking for the Democrats.
The argument is simple, the man that the Democrats placed on a pedestal as their leader and the next President of the US was John Kerry. John Kerry basically stated some of the accusations that this cartoon is implying. Per John Kerry, American soldiers are uneducated, lazy, yada, yada, yada...
Democratic Sen. John Kerry warned students in a campaign speech last night that if they don't study hard and get a good education they might "get stuck in Iraq."
The remark is being interpreted by many veterans – including Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. – as a slam at military service, suggesting it's a last refuge for the lazy and uneducated.
Video of Kerry's comment can be seen
And this is not the first time that John Kerry has made these types of implications.
It is doubtful that any Republican as high up as John Kerry is in the Democrat party sided with Ann Coulter and her trashing of a handful of the 9/11 widows.
Keep in mind, Ted Rall is quite the hero in some liberal circles. For example, his Alma mater- Columbia University. Rall wrote a book called "Wake up, you liberal" and then wrote another article just recently showing his excitement that the "pendulum has swung back" to his liberal way of thinking. He is also excited that Hillary is moving towards his way of
I know plenty of Democrats that would be just as appaled as I am about this cartoon. They do not deserve to be represented by extreme liberalism or socialism.
Ted Rall is no more the face of the Democratic Party than Ann Coulter is for the Republican Party.
Yes- every American has freedom speech, even Ted Rall.
It is our duty as Democrats and Republicans to all denounce Ted Rall.
Write your newspapers and let them know that you will not tolerate the evil that Ted Rall is portraying. If you see this cartoon or any cartoon by Ted Rall, send an email or write a letter to your news publication.
The only way to take down a liberal hater like Ted Rall is to hit him where it hurts- his pocketbook.
