Liberals Cheer at the DNC for Russian Navy Warships
More proof that liberals are communist leaning? At the Democrat National Convention in Charlotte, during a “tribute” to servicemen, one of Obama’s admirals honored America’s veterans on stage while showing the Russian Black Sea Fleet on the giant screen in the background. Liberals cheered, and some even shed a tear at the beauty of Russian Naval Prowess.
From the NavyTimes here:
While retired Adm. John Nathman, a former commander of Fleet Forces Command, honored vets as America’s best, the ships from the Russian Federation Navy were arrayed like sentinels on the big screen above.
These were the very Soviet-era combatants that Nathman and Cold Warriors like him had once squared off against.
“The ships are definitely Russian,” said noted naval author Norman Polmar after reviewing hi-resolution photos from the event. “There’s no question of that in my mind.”
The background — featured in the carefully choreographed hour leading up to the president’s Sept. 6 speech accepting the Democratic Party’s nomination — showed four ships with radar designs not used in the U.S. fleet.
For example, the ship in the foreground, on the far right, has a square radar antenna at the top of its masthead. That is the MR-700 Podberezovik 3-D early warning radar, commonly identified as “Flat Screen” for its appearance, a three-dimensional early warning radar mounted on the Kerch, said Eric Wertheim, editor of “Combat Fleets of the World.”
Similarly, the third ship has a MR-310 “Head Net” air search radar, shaped like two off-set bananas, at its masthead and is mostly likely the guided missile destroyer Smetlivyy. The first two ships seem to be Krivak-class frigates, but it’s hard to discern from the silhouette, experts said.
But the fact they are Russian ships is not in doubt. In addition to the ship’s radar arrays and hulls, which are dissimilar from U.S. warships, the photo features one more give-away: a large white flag with a blue ‘X’ at the ships’ sterns. “The X is the Cross of St. Andrew’s, which is a Russian Navy symbol,” Polmar said.
Based on this specific group of these ship types, one naval expert concluded that this was most likely a photo of the Black Sea Fleet.
Yeah, don’t bother to do any research on a photo before splashing it on the big screen. Of course it was Russian Ships. The sight of a strong US military makes leftist researchers retch.

Russian. Superjet. Volcano. Epic fail. And the big kicker is that the name of the volcano sounds like a Vulcan name. From NyDailyNews here: MOUNT SALAK, Indonesia — Search teams who scaled a volcano’s steep slopes found at least 12 bodies Friday near the wreckage of a Russian-made jetliner that crashed in Indonesia during a…

This is good stuff from Chuck here, reminding us we are not a Democracy. And I love the quote: “You can judge the arrogance of your politician by the ignorance of their constituents.” Like This Post? Rate it and tell your friends! Click the Share button below.

Some chick that looks like Robin Scherbatsky from How I Met Your Mother arrived ashore with a golden ticket in her hand giving her the happy privilege of having the first kiss upon homecoming. Supposedly this is controversial, but gays have been running down the gangplanks for centuries (if you know what I mean) upon…

I’m about halfway through Ann Coulter’s book Demonic, and it is really great the way it contrasts the American Revolution that was led by thinking, great men, and the disgusting brutality of the French Revolution where mobs of lowlifes butchered their fellow citizens.
