Of Course: VFW Endorses Cowardly Lawyer Over Heroic Soldier

Over at Blackfive, the vets are burning their VFW cards.

Yes, the Veterans of Foreign Wars decided to endorse chairborne ranger Ron "I feel threatened" Klein over Lt. Colonel Allen West.

Oh, and check out who else they're endorsing:

Barbara Boxer, Alcee Hastings, Barbara Lee, Steny Hoyer, Barbara Mikulsky, Chris VanHollen, John Dingell, Chuckie Schumer, Pat Leahy and Patty Murray

I haven't seen that kind of combat experience assembled in one place since the Force 10 from Navaronne class reunion.

Mr. Wolf urges:

I am asking all of you to join me in contacting the VFW to protest this development; supporting a non-vet over LTC West was the last straw.

Call the VFW at 1-202-544-5868. Email them at: vfwpac@vfw.org.

Look, as the old truism goes: Any organization which is not expressly right-wing will become left-wing over time. The reason is personnel; liberals don't like actually making or doing things; they prefer to deal in the abstract, hands-clean. They like to advocate, or support, or take some people's money and give it to some other people. So the constant stream of personnel seeking employment in these organizations' bureaucracies is lefty, and at some point they reach critical mass and can begin blackballing any applicant who's not lefty enough.

So, there you go. Now the VFW falls, as the AMA fell before it.
