Kristia Cavere, from Tuxedo in Orange County, is the Tea Party and a Republican candidate for New York’s 19th Congressional District seat held by Hall. Cavere thinks that the Democrats have co-opted Republican values and claims, among other things, that:
“The Republicans are the ones who liberated Europe
in World War II.”
The Republicans were an isolationist party at the time who tried to stop FDR from intervening on the side of the Allies (leading Roosevelt to circumvent them with the lend-lease program)
But once Pearl Harbor was bombed, Republicans, Democrats, independents, Socialists, etc all lined up at the recruiting stations, and of those who didn't volunteer, many were drafted. So no party holds a monopoly on WWII service.
You know, I said I wasn't going to bother refuting this imbecilic claim.
So, Kristia Cavere, that name sounded familiar. Sure enough, here crazy ass has made an appearance on this blog back in November of 2009, although it looks like I never published that post for some reson, so I will just add it on here.
Is this person serious?
I don't know about you, but when someone asks me to tell them a little bit about myself, i don't lead off with how my brother died. But then again, I'm not trying to aggrandize myself by glomming on to my brother's sacrifice. And my brother's not dead. But anyway. . . how is that your lead sentence? I think maybe she intends the first sentence to give some sort of credibility to the second: "She has dedicated her life to protecting and defending America."
Yeah, sounds like it was your brother who dedicated his life to the defense of America. Because while he joined the Army and became a medic, saving the lives of wounded soldiers, you were what, getting you masters in "defense & strategic studies"? Learning about defense is not the same thing as actually doing it.
Even her website, where she writes daily!, is entitled "GoldStarSister.com"
How pathetic is that? 'Cause it feels kinda like you're saying "I have credibility because I made the ultimate sacrifice! Of my brother's life."
So I checked out GoldStarSister.com, and it gets even lamer! She has an expanded bio on the site, under an odd collection of photos of herself during various stages of life.
