Alaska Rep. Don Young Says Anti-War Congressmen Should Face Exile, Jail & Death

On February 15th, as the House debated the resolution opposing the Escalation in Iraq, Alaska Representative in the House Don Young called for all Congressmen who dissent against the war to be killed or exiled from the United States or jailed.
Don Young thought he was quoting Lincoln,

“Congressmen who willfully take actions during wartime that damage morale and undermine the military are sabateurs and should be arrested, exiled, or hanged.”

but Lincoln never said any such thing! But who cares? Lincoln, its arguable, was the most bloodthirsty of all American Presidents, having 10% of all adult males in the United and Confederate States killed in a civil war over a political entity.

But as to “Congressmen … should be arrested, exiled, or hanged”, Don Young finds favor in both the words and sentiment! Young actually believes AND advocates that most of the Democrats in Congress and some dissenting Republicans (Ron Paul) should be arrested, jailed, EXECUTED!!! (A hanging, anyone?) or exiled from the United States! That’s total fascism summarized in one sentence!

Watch the video and see Young in the Congress gleefully quoting a murderous dictate that he falsely attributes to Abraham Lincoln:

“Congressmen who willfully take actions during wartime that damage morale and undermine the military are sabateurs and should be arrested, exiled, or hanged.”

But Lincoln never said such a thing. Lincoln faced huge opposition in Congress in 1864, as much from his own Party. The war was going so badly, Lincoln was almost driven from re-election. But the South began to collapse in the spring of 1864 and Lincoln’s re-election was certain only then. Lincoln was in the custom of entrusting friends and enemies in positions of authority, he wasn’t the ‘exile the opposition’ type because Lincoln learned that in politics and Congress, who was an ally or foe changed daily and with each vote.
WATCH THIS VIDEO FROM CONGRESS OF FEBRUARY 15 OF ALASKA REP. DON YOUNG ADVOCATING EXECUTION FOR WAR DISSENTERS

Congressman Young is clearly a crazy, fascist, nasty son of a bitch. Do the people in Alaska know this is who this guy is? I thought Alaskans were progressive, independent thinking types who are suspicious of government. This guy thinks its cool rhetoric -hip, even, quoting Lincoln as he thought- to advocate murder, jailing and exile of Congressmen opposed to the war! Think of the contempt Young has for the majority of Alaskans who are now conclusively against the war in Iraq!!!!! What an arrogant, nazi bastard! And hey, that IS just what the Nazi’s advocated! Exterminate your political opponents so the state can wage perpetual war!

Contact tyrant Don Young and tell him what you think

Write a Letter to the Editor voicing your opinion as well.

And a question for Alaskans. Are you telling me that this barbarian Don Young was more preferrable than Democratic Party candidate Diane Benson three months ago on November 7? Are you kiddin’ me??? What is up with that?!
