Congressman Don Young never said that. I am sure he doesn't support "the terrorists." Sadly, he isn't too sure about you and me. But he is sure that if we do "support the terrorists" by having the balls to stand up against the escalation of the war in Iraq, we deserve to be hanged. Heck, Abraham Lincoln
What strikes me about this story is that is, first, no one is covering it and Democrats are letting it slide. We could have our own little Catholic League moment and go ape with claims of "I'm offended!" (which I actually am, by the way). Instead, Rep. Young will get away with his call for the murder of millions of Americans and his destruction of historical truth.
What also strikes me is that while the mainstream media loves to posit that all blogs are unreliable drivel, distorting the truth, history, and whatever else they need to to make a point. While that surely goes on (on both the left and right), here's a guy in CONGRESS who misquoted LINCOLN in order to make the point that the majority of Americans (who oppose the surge) deserve to be KILLED. Wheres the media coverage of this gigantic flub? Nowhere to be found, yet.
Email Rep. Young and tell him how offended you are (even if your aren't) and that he needs to apologize in a press release immediately.
