Daryl Metcalfe Insults Veterans

State Rep. Daryl Metcalfe, who thinks including men in a resolution about domestic violence promotes homosexuality (guess he's never heard of Lorena Bobbit), is in the news again.

Metcalfe, a veteran, was sent an email from a group advocating enviromental policy for national security reasons. His response was to say any veteran who was in favor of "cap and trade" is a traitor.

You can read more in an article from Dennis Roddy in the Post-Gazette ("Rep. Metcalfe calls vets on climate change tour 'traitors'")

There are two related events in the Philadelphia area on Oct. 21st.

In Philadelphia, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. you can visit with Operation Free’s “Veterans for American Power” bus, near the intersection of Market & Broad.

In Delaware County, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Event: NO WAR, NO WARMING! at the Peace Center, 1001 Old Sproul Rd., Springfield, PA 19064

Jane, as a veteran, I like to think that veterans, like the rest of the populace, have a right to an opinion that does not agree with Mr. Metcalfe.
I thought our military service was in part to protect that right?

I guess in the twisted world of Darryl Metcalfe, we only defended his point of view, and the right to be an extreme idiot.
