(Video) SEALs don’t fight so American presidents can bow to kings

Another hard-hitting ad by special operations veterans, this time from Special Operations For America (SOFA), headed by former Navy SEAL Ryan Zinke, a Montana state senator.

Did I say “hard hitting?” Make that a gut-punch.

Ben Shapiro at Breitbart spoke with Senator Zinke about why these former special operators have chosen to speak out:

The ad is sure to provoke massive consternation on the left, which has been in a frenzy ever since Special Operations for America launched. The event at which the ad launches, “Defending Our Defenders: A Salute to the United States Military,” will feature a tribute by Congressman Louie Gohmert, former members of SEAL Team Six, Army Rangers, Gold Star parents, and a few surprise guests.

Ryan Zinke, the former Navy SEAL who started the super PAC, spoke exclusively with Breitbart News today. “The ad itself accurately portrays where this President is,” said Zinke. “It accurately portrays his core belief that America should not lead. This president is shaping America to be one of the followers, to relinquish our role as a world leader. I didn’t fight 23 years as a Navy SEAL to watch America bow to anybody.”

(…)

When asked whether it was inappropriate for former SEALs to speak out, as some on the left have alleged, Zinke answered, “If the veterans can’t speak out, who can? I think it’s a duty of every veteran and every citizen to be actively involved in our political process, especially when the president sets out to negotiate away our rights under the Constitution. There have been other veterans — TR, Eisenhower, JFK — they’ve been active in speaking out and shaping the policy and politics of our country. I’m going to stand for what I believe in, and I’m encouraging every veteran and every citizen to do the same. Our country is at a crossroads, and this election is certainly the most important in my lifetime.”

And, as Shapiro notes, for their choice to speak freely as American citizens and veterans, SOFA has been placed on the White House “enemies list.”

Nice way to say “thanks for your service,” isn’t it?

PS: Romney-Ryan 2012, because they won’t glad-hand our enemies.

    Whenever I read this kind of crap I think back to the many times we’ve heard just how brilliant Barry O is supposed to be. How does this square with that marketing? Obviously, it goes with all the other bits of reality that expose it for the big lie it is. The guy is a complete idiot and not worthy to lead his own lemming-like followers over the cliff. God help us all if we can’t muster the votes necessary to remove this incredible buffoon from office. And God help us if his we don’t learn the many lessons his election has taught us.

    I’ve only one word after watching this ad: “WOW!”

    Given the opportunity Obhammud would bow to Burger King. It seems like denigrating the office to which he was elected is a life-long activity for this imbecile.

    …the one thing I appreciate about this effort is the knowin’ that the people behind it won’t be intimidated. They figure to take an immense amount of crap/abuse/whatever (much like the Swift Boat Veterans did back in 2004). **GO NAVY!**

    No wonder Obama has instructed Eric Holder to work so hard to find ways to impede the votes of military personnel stationed overseas (Ohio voting law is one example).

    The vast majority of military personnel, especially those fighting overseas, don’t appreciate THEIR hard work and sacrifice being hijacked by Obama for HIS personal political gain.

    Obama’s massive ego and self-serving character are a disgrace to the position he holds as Commander in Chief of all U.S. military forces.
