North insisted that the US "has nothing ever to apologize for, not once" in its entire history.

The fact that a man like Oliver North can make a statement like that and not be instantly struck down by a bolt of lightning just put the last nail in the coffin of my virtually non-existent belief in a higher power.

I mean....seriously, North? SERIOUSLY?

Obviously you have no understanding of US history.  All of our sins were washed clean in a baptism of liberal tears when Saint Reagan slayed the evil Cartifer in 1980.

In the 80s there was Cold War drama.
We fought the Commies inside Nicaragua.
Our friends were the Contras. Freedom was their mantra.
So we sent them lots of money for guns and landmines.
But Congress stopped the Contra money flow
Just 'cause they moved a teeny bit of blow.
But then a hero came forth.
His name was Oliver North.
He and Reagan went around the sissy Congress.
OLLIE NORTH! OLLIE NORTH!
Stan (speaking): You see, North secretly sold missiles to a harmless country called Iran who would always be a grateful ally. Then he gave the profits to the Contras. Genius!
Stan: But the sales were uncovered by the press.
Contras: Awwww.
Press: He he.
Stan: Reagan and North began to stress.
Reagan: Well...
North: Nyaay!
Stan: 'Cause what they did was technically high treason! (But it was totally justified.)
Stan: North volunteered to take the blame,
to save Reagan from prison rape shame.
The truth he did bury with his hot secretary.
Thanks to her shredder, he got off totally scot-free!
OLLIE NORTH! OLLIE NORTH!
He's a soldier!
And a hero!
And a novelist!
And now he's on Fox News!

Oliver North says that they must succeed in banning gay marriage and abortion or they (Conservatives) will cease to be a political force in this country.

You know what?  He's right.  They've painted themselves into these corners, laid all the markers they can to say, loud and clear "we're the party that will put (our version of) Jesus back in charge."  If they fail to do that, what do they have left?  A whole lot of anger and, oh yeah the "trickle down economics" that have just done wonders for the middle and lower classes over my lifetime.  That is probably a dud of a bag of tricks, long term.

Now I of course see the irony that "states' rights" types are saying that it was their philosophy that won the Civil War and ended slavery (separate accomplishments), since Lincoln undertook a massive federalization of authority to accomplish both.

So in the struggle against equal rights we should make a deal with Islamic terrorists to hold our citizens hostage until Inauguration Day, trade arms for those hostages, trade drugs for arms and create death squads and puppet drug lords throughout Central and South America?

If only we could find someone with that level of experience.

Only a pussy appeaser America-hater like Obama would apologize for American history. We're exceptional (says so right on this note from a Frenchman) - haven't you heard? - which means OTHERS apologize to US, like when Joe Barton apologized for inconveniencing BP for mixing seawater in their oil.

Well given his role in the Mai Lai Massacre, it is safe to say that the man has no shame.   One of the reasons I was proud to say Jim Webb was my Senator was knowing that he once punched Ollie North in the face, repeatedly, for about an hour

Yes, Oliver North is a vile cockroach, and his "America has never done anything it needs to apologize for" is utterly untrue--obviously, he has never lost the ability to lie with a straight face to people too damn dumb to call him on it.
That being said, subby needs to stop trolling. He did not say that same-sex marriage had to be fought against with the same fervor of abolitionism. Frankly, many pro-lifers see themselves as the heirs of the anti-slavery movement, since "fetuses aren't recognized as humans as slaves once were not recognized as humans" makes sense to them. Not necessarily true, but at least one can see the logic.
What he is saying is that...oh, screw it. He's a cockroach--let's leave it at that.

In an appearance at CPAC today, Oliver North denounced President Obama for treating military service members like "laboratory rats in some radical social experiment" and "apologizing" for America. North insisted that the US "has nothing ever to apologize for, not once" in its entire history.
Later, North said that the GOP must remain firm in working to ban marriage equality and abortion rights just as abolitionists fought to end slavery, warning that "if we as conservatives cease to be a place where people of faith and those who believe in strong moral values can come, we will cease to be a political force in America."


Wait, what the...  Ollie, that's retarded even for a right winger.  The last part of your speech directly contradicts the first.

North was instrumental in covering up Mai Lai and defending the perps:

Assisting the defense team in every way possible was First Lt. Oliver L. North, whose life Herrod had saved some months earlier. Herrod was tried by a panel of seven officers - a colonel, lieutenant colonel, four majors, and a captain - all of whom had combat experience. In North's view, this was advantageous to the accused, because "only men who had served in combat could appreciate the pressures that Herrod must have been under."

At the trial, Krichten's testimony was detailed and damaging to Herrod. In a 1996 letter to Solis, defense attorney Garrison referred to the Government's presentation as a "sophomoric prosecution." However, Solis' recital of the testimony suggests to me a contrary conclusion. Countering this case was defense evidence about extensive Viet Cong activity in the Son Thang area a few days before. There was even evidence suggesting that the patrol itself had been fired upon. Herrod's former battalion commander testified for the defense as to the difficult situation in which the members of the patrol found themselves. Oliver North, who had paid his own way to come testify for Herrod, was an effective character witness.

No, slavery became wrong on December 6, 1865, but it was right up until then. It's like the grue-bleen paradox, or like those fish that can change their sex based on environmental factors.

Including slavery, which the GOP fought so valiantly to end, because it was evil.

Lots of irony in that speech. Also this: "if we as conservatives cease to be a place where people of faith and those who believe in strong moral values can come, we will cease to be a political force in America."

Actually, that's a huge part of what's sapping your political strength. But carry on anyway.
