Just when you think leftists have sunk to the deepest of depths, they sink even lower:
Media Matters senior fellow Eric Boehlert said on Thursday that a group of former Navy SEALS “don’t have guts” after the special forces operators launched a media campaign condemning the Obama administration’s national security leaks.
“#kindalame former Navy SEALs don’t have guts to admit they’re running a GOP, anti-Obama campaign; http://nyti.ms/N2nYYj ” Boehlert wrote on Twitter Thursday morning.
The group Boehlert lashed out at is called the Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund and it’s composed of former U.S. intelligence and specials forces operators. They describe themselves as non-partisan and finger the current president as an example of a politician who uses national security secrets for political gain.
“STOP the politicians, President Obama and others, from politically capitalizing on US national security operations and secrets!” reads the organization’s website.
Scott Taylor is a former Navy SEAL of eight and a half years, and was a 2010 GOP candidate for Congress. He is now a member of the Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund.
Taylor responded to Boehlert’s tweet in a phone interview with The Daily Caller and said that his group of special forces operators is “clearly not gutless.”
“We’re clearly not gutless. We’re in the public right now, completely out there,” Taylor said.
It's increasingly more difficult to endure the sophomoric thinking emanating from leftist grottos across the country. This goes beyond ignorance, beyond stupid. There can be little doubt that their ideologies have emptied them of even an iota of common sense and humanity.
It's disgusting. And clearly, it's projection, as the DailyCaller piece goes on to point out:
There is some irony in Boehlert accusing a political group of hiding its affinity for, or opposition to, a particular candidate.
Media Matters, as a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization, is forbidden from explicitly endorsing or opposing a candidate for elected office. But as TheDC has previously reported, the group has steadily expanded its support of Obama as he mounts up his 2012 re-election campaign.
A spokeswoman for Media Matters did not respond to a request for comment for this report.
That might be because this spokeswoman, unlike Mr. Boehlert, might be aware of the old adage suggesting silence is best when there' really nothing intelligent to say.
