For anyone unversed in Marine Corps parlance, there is only one ex-Marine; Lee Harvey Oswald. However, I now consider despicable criminal congressman Duncan Hunter and ex-Marine as well.
Duncan Hunter is a scumbag who needs to be stripped of his EGA for his criminal actions and general malfeasance. Hunter's criminal actions are not unusual, of course, he does benefit from the IOKIYAR, as Criminal Hunter is not facing the same jail sentence as Jesse Jackson Jr, nor the same daily harangues by the rightwing media. In fact, Hunter taking a page from Traitor Trump has claimed because prosecutors aren't Republicans his case which begins in September should be dismissed.
The United States Marines have had to send cease and desist orders to Hunter's office, because Hunter continues to wrap himself in USMC symbols to deflect from his criminality.
Remember the outcry against President Obama for having a Marine hold an umbrella in the rain? Remember all the bullshit email forwards that a Marine guard at Marine Air One demanded President Obama get off the chopper and return his salute?
And now juxtapose this against the silence from Faux News and the rightwing internet. If Hunter runs again I guarantee-fucking-tee conservatives will dutifully line up and vote for him.
Conservatives actually hate Veterans and see service members as props to use in their never ending Civil War against liberals. Conservatives piss on Veterans who don't help advance the rightwing agenda of intolerance and oppression. Recall the vitriolic disbelief Ann Coulter and Sean Hannity had at learning Pat Tillman did not support the Iraq War, did not support American Imperialism and read Noam Chomsky.
