Moran Accuses U.S. Of “Ethnic Cleansing”

By Greg L | 20 December 2007 | National Politics, US Congress | 17 Comments

Here’s Rep. Jim Moran telling the American people, from the floor of the House of Representatives, that the reason violence is down in Iraq is because “we have ethnically cleansed Baghdad.”

This gentleman is an abomination.  Our soldiers succeed in dramatically reducing the level of violence at a significant cost in American lives, and instead of congratulating our soldiers and Marines for the results their sacrifices have achieved, Jim Moran’s reaction is to put them in the same moral category as Rwandan war criminals.

I guess this is what some of our esteemed elected officials actually mean by ’supporting the troops, but not the war.’

    Jim Moron is a grandstanding, racist idiot. Wasn’t too long ago that he was drunk and grabbing an 8 year old black kid that he claimed was breaking into his car, I believe. He’s also been under fire for antisemitism. He’s a credit to Congress.

    I think that what Big Jim is saying is that Baghdad is just like Arlington - ethnic groups are now separated by clear lines of demarcation which they dare not cross. The question to Big Jim should be, “Why is that a good thing for his district, but a bad thing for Baghdad?”

    Dump Moran. And dump Cantor with his AIPAC spy / Abramoff buddies while we’re at it. We can save the Old Dominion by putting real Virginians in Congress.

    His choice of the words “ethnic cleansing” are used for the shock value. The fact of the matter is that in 2006 and early 2007 Iraqi militias killed you if you were from the wrong sect. This “Sectarian Cleansing” is an undisputed fact.

    The US Military were the ones who did this, but the US policies created an environment and power vacuum that enabled it.

    Correction: The US Military were NOT the ones who did this. Many Americans died trying to prevent it. Sorry for the typo.

    His choice of words are repugnant and offensive, and they cannot be justified. Moran has been an embarrassment to the state, with a laundry list of incidents and inappropriate actions. Add this to the list. Time for retirement….

    Virginia has it’s own version of Teddy Kennedy. Too bad he doesn’t ski.

    The People’s Republic of Alexandria in the same district as the People’s Republic of Arlington would be bad enough. However, the 8th District also gerrymanders in a narrow alley out to Reston which it then completely encompasses. Mao Tse Tung could get elected in that district.

    I’ll say one thing for Big Jim: he knows how to give himself a birthday present.

    Outrageous and inappropriate. This lack of respect for our military, Virginian Warfighters, continues to be promulgated by the Democrats. Our military needs leaders that will take care of them and their families, not ones that categorize them as war criminals.

    How very “progressive” of him! I’m sure Senator Durbin is proud, having compared our troops to Nazis himself.

    One has to wonder if this is what they mean when they say they support our troops:


    I kinda doubt that’s the Republican base out there parading that banner around.

    I did get a chuckle out of this hysteria-ridden comment from him yesterday though:

    “The lines to get licenses “are going to be several blocks long, 24 hours a day.”

    Why not just run around flailing his arms screaming, “We’re all gonna die!”

    Let’s remember that Jim Moran voted FOR the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998 when Clinton was President. Did “AIPAC spies” make him do that? Hmmm, I’ll have to look up how Ron Paul voted on that . . .

    BDS all the way!

    Update: Moran voted yes on the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998; Paul voted no:

    Moran is a mental case. Nothing against mental cases but why is this one in a position of power?

    This is a common phenomenon is strongly Democrat districts. Look at the entire Massachusetts delegation. LOL

    I agree with “johnson.” Jim Moran is 100% a grandstander. I think he says outrageous stuff to get attention and get his name in the papers. Fortunately for him, just being a Democrat gets him elected in the 8th. They don’t think. They just vote label. That’s how he can say outrageous stuff and get re-elected.

    I lived in the 8th. Never did vote for Moran, but was in the definite minority, of course. Some of my neighbors used to refer to him as “Jim Moron.” Immature, I know, but if the shoe fits, hey, then, well, you know… you’ve got to wear it, Jimmy.

    Why is it that every politician that wants to embrace 1970’s social engineering concepts that benefit only one group of people representing a specific race, gender, religion or ethnic group, ends up being a mental case?

    Iraq is about a war. How to start one and how to end one. The issue of how to deal with ethnic hatred and ethnic privilige needs to be solved in our own country before we can solve it in another.

    Social engineering incorrectly advances ethnic self-segregation and ethnic “groups” by allowing people who are members of these groups to advocate for privilige and special self interest.

    Getting rid of racial, gender, religious and ethnic group advocacy and allowing only “individual rights” advocacy is how you get rid of ethnic cleansing social attitudes in groups who learn to hate those who are differfent that they are.

    The LABEL on the group is the basic problem. Judge individuals not “groups”.
    Help individuals, not groups. Give privilige to “individuals” not groups. Give rights to”individuals” not groups, and your problem of racial, gender, religious and ethnic group injustices and un-deserved privilige and hatred goes away.

    Moran does not get that simple human rights concept. He and other “social engineers”in our country think you can solve the problem by managing “groups” and helping “groups” based on religion, gender, race and ethnicity.

    They are idiots.
