Video: To Our Americans Serving in Iraq

posted at 12:11 pm on April 6, 2007 by Bryan

A little technical glitching in the first few seconds, but it doesn’t get in the way. The video is by Bob Parks, who has had his own run-ins with YouTube and liberal tolerance for conservatism. This particular clip went up in February and has had over 224,000 views. In it, Parks takes on the Defeatocrats and thanks our troops for their service. Good stuff.

Good stuff.

Well Done

Defector01 on April 6, 2007 at 12:41 PM

Bra F-ing Vo Mr. Parks!

THAT Was Some Good Stuff!

Well constructed argument, and passionate. You have made a new fan out of me!

NeoConSnakePlissken on April 6, 2007 at 12:44 PM

I’ve never heard this put better. One of the best and most moving videos I’ve seen.

stonemeister on April 6, 2007 at 12:44 PM

Salute!!!

Romeo13 on April 6, 2007 at 12:47 PM

“I am a veteran and a citizen of the United States of America. I want you to win and come home. That’s as it should be, right?”

Brilliance.

Yo, Bryan and Michelle! Time to get this guy on the payroll. He’s perfect. Vent, Stakattack, Jihadwatch, Black and Right. I like the ring of that lineup.

spmat on April 6, 2007 at 12:55 PM

LOVE THIS GUY! This is my first exposure to him, needless to say I have a new bookmark.

silenced majority on April 6, 2007 at 12:57 PM

And he does not appear on FOX because…

Dread Pirate Roberts VI on April 6, 2007 at 12:57 PM

Thanks for featuring Bryan. How long before some media-hack will call him “disgraceful”?

Entelechy on April 6, 2007 at 12:59 PM

Dead Pirate has a good point – this guy should be on Fox.

JustTruth101 on April 6, 2007 at 1:02 PM

Standing O!

aero on April 6, 2007 at 1:07 PM

Great video. Thanks for the link.

Yakko77 on April 6, 2007 at 1:10 PM

Cool, nice find Bryan. No surprise he gets flak from youtube, after all his pro-america messages suck up so much precious bandwidth for jihadi and anti-Jewish propaganda clips.

Bad Candy on April 6, 2007 at 1:10 PM

That was AMAZING! I am most decidedly not a ‘you-tuber’ unless something is posted here so had never seen or heard of this before. Anyone have any background on this fellow? I do kno9w I would like to see and hear more of what he has to say.

dustoffmom on April 6, 2007 at 1:14 PM

Wow! He speaks for me. “memory-challenged media” Excellent!

This should be everywhere:

“I want you to win this war and come home. That is as it should be.”

Can we put him on Fox instead of Greta?

CrimsonFisted on April 6, 2007 at 1:25 PM

Bob! Glad to see you found your way here! Keep up the good fight. (PTM)

As the Irishmen in the Guiness comercial say: “BRILLIANT!” “BRILLIANT!”

On the other side of the war debate, the dhimmicrats don’t even wanna call it the war on terror, they wanna give up in the Iraqi theater of the aforementioned war and Pelosi talks with terrorist Bashir Assad. Whose friggin’ side are they on?

Speakin’ of terrorist, recommended reading for HotAirHeads: ‘Inside The Jihad’, by “Omar Nasiri” … if that IS his real name.

Tony737 on April 6, 2007 at 1:31 PM

I sent this link to you folks a couple weeks ago via tips email address.

Glad to see it made the cut finally.

Straight to the point and no BS, that’s how I like it dished out!!

Bravo Mr. Parks!

omnipotent on April 6, 2007 at 1:50 PM

Thanks BigOldDog! I went and looked and under one of his columns he wrote about the youTube ‘problems’ and said this:

In April, a new website will be launched. On this site, of which I am Executive Producer, original, conservative, political videos will be created and posted for anyone to watch, any time, for free, and my video content will never again be constrained by time or a liberal overseer (Google).

Hopefully we’ll be alerted when he does launch. I’ll look forward to seeing other things he has done/will do. As well as yet another forum for conservative voices.

dustoffmom on April 6, 2007 at 1:54 PM

This is a well done video by Bob Parks.

As the polls tell us, about 25% of all Democrats are traitors who don’t want America to win. Got a problem with that, Bradky?

On Kerry, his disgrace of a Senator (as he put it), Parks is on the mark again. Kerry, who personally cut in run in Vietnam, and then committed treason by talking with our enemy (when he wasn’t voting on assassinating 6 Senators, that is), doesn’t have the gumballs to go to the mean streets of Baghdad and talk “peace” with Al Qaeda.

Well done, Mr. Parks!

Spoken as a TRUE AMERICAN

abinitioadinfinitum on April 6, 2007 at 1:58 PM

I’ve never heard of this guy! Brilliant!

How long before some media-hack will call him “disgraceful”?

Entelechy on April 6, 2007 at 12:59 PM

You won’t see anyone say he’s clean and articulate.

Kini on April 6, 2007 at 2:18 PM

He’ll just be called an “Uncle Tom” (probably not the first time) and be completely dismissed (and harassed and threatened) by the Leftocrisy that sees big Halliburton/Zionist/etc. conspiracies around every corner of non-“progressive” thought.

BTW, I haven’t seen one dime for my thoughts or beliefs. Where’s my big conspiracy check?

JimRich on April 6, 2007 at 2:38 PM

This guy is great, he’ll say whatever he thinks–political correctness be darned–and he’s usually spot on!! Don’t miss his “Radio Rants” posted at Mens News Daily.

mojojojo on April 6, 2007 at 2:47 PM

Well said, Mr. Parks!

JimRich on April 6, 2007 at 2:38 PM

He did. Pretty predictible.

From Parks site:

I bring up this point to set up one of the recurring comments found in response to the video, To Our Americans Serving in Iraq ….

“uncle tom “

As I’ve written many times in the past and liberals seemingly go out of their way to prove, they seem to think so little of Black people that they truly believe as we all look alike, we must all think and vote alike. Should I have the freedom to think independently, I must be an Uncle Tom.

Over the years, I’ve learned to take that as a compliment. In most cases, if someone disagrees with someone’s point, the natural thing to do would be pose another point of view to counter. A black person during the Democratic Party’s glory days would be lynched for doing other than he or she was told. Lucky for me lynching is illegal today, so liberals do what they do best: shout down anything they don’t want to hear.

As for the check from the Zionist-NeoCon Worldwide Conspiracy(TM), I’m waiting too, and I’m getting impatient…

Bad Candy on April 6, 2007 at 3:05 PM

Bob is the best, he ran for Chairman of Mass GOP this past election cycle but lost to former congressman Torkildsen. Hopefully if you guys keep a spotlight on him and continue to use his video rants the Massachusetts Republican party might get leader with some chutzpa when Torkildsen’s term is up. God knows we need it!!!

kiakjones on April 6, 2007 at 3:36 PM

Bravo sir, thank you for your service and clarity of thought.

Thanks Bryan.

elpresidente on April 6, 2007 at 3:36 PM

Wow !! Saying it like it should be said.

Bravo Mr.Parks Bravo.

Texyank on April 6, 2007 at 3:41 PM

Another vote here to get this guy’s segment on Hot Air.

elpresidente on April 6, 2007 at 3:47 PM

Thanks for posting this Bryan. It was too good not to share.

Zorro on April 6, 2007 at 3:51 PM

Bob Parks writes the occasional column for Mens News Daily and has his own radio show, too.

I’ll tell him you all said hello.

kiakjones on April 6, 2007 at 4:04 PM

I’ll echo everyone’s sentiments here.

I haven’t been this moved since a Brigitte Gabriel video that I saw on Hot Air a few months back.

asc85 on April 6, 2007 at 4:10 PM

I’m sold. Hire him for Hot Air and Fox. Get his message out. And then make him SECDEF.

Go Bob. Your picture is on the piano.

Subsunk on April 6, 2007 at 4:12 PM

Damn Right!

E L Frederick (Sniper One) on April 6, 2007 at 4:37 PM

I am totally sold on this guy. I can’t get enough of him. Watching everything I can find that he has posted. This is the kind of guy that must REALLY piss of the lefties. I like his website, got it bookmarked now, and can’t wait for his un-edited video broadcasts. Lets give this guy a big round of applause and a big boost to his sitemeter!

MalkinFan on April 6, 2007 at 5:12 PM

my video content will never again be constrained by time or a liberal overseer (Google).

That one’s gonna leave a mark.

The Monster on April 6, 2007 at 5:12 PM

Thompson/Parks ’08!!!
just sayin’…..

TBinSTL on April 6, 2007 at 5:31 PM

As much as I absolutely love HotAir.com and would never do anything to take away from them as the nexus for online media for the discerning political conservative, I am absolutely overjoyed that Mr. Parks is starting his own traditionalist online video website! THAT ROCKS!

An Army of Davids?

Heh.

Indeed!

ScottMcC on April 6, 2007 at 5:36 PM

Outstanding, Mr. Parks! You make me proud to be a veteran. Keep up the good work.

Many thanks to HotAir for linking this.

RedinBlueCounty on April 6, 2007 at 5:49 PM

Great Post! Well done Bob Parks!

In my opinion the biggest weakness the United States has is the Left, and the MSM that supports their objectives with biased “reporting” and commentary. The Left is more interested in their own political agenda than the interests of the United States, and currently would rather see the United States defeated in every way in Iraq rather than see a victory led by a Republican administration.

omegaram on April 6, 2007 at 8:21 PM

Jumping up out of my chair and shouting!!!!!!!!

WAY TO GO BOB PARKS!!!!!!!!!!!

Note to Fred or whom ever takes the nomination, I have a guy you might want to ineterview for Press Secretary……

In my 58 yrs I’ve read and heard some very powerful speeches. This is one of those speeches.

100 & RIGHT On Thanks for sharing his thoughtfull and truthfull video

bones47 on April 7, 2007 at 1:38 PM

I can just hear them on DU. “Black and right? Right, sure–as in Genghis Kahn. But black? He’s black like–wait for it–Justice Thomas!!! Hahahahah!”

Well, yes folks, he is black–and right–with both an upper and lower case r. And one more brick removed from the wall of the once monolithic Democrat ownership of the black voting block. It ain’t a question of if–it’s only a question of when. Thompson-Steele for the Republican ticket!
