Senator Clarifies Remark Telling Troops To ‘Go Fuck Themselves’, Says Quote Taken Out Of Context Paul August 21, 2012 The Pentagon 319 Comments Follow Duffel Blog: PrevNextUse your ← → (arrow) keys to browse PHOENIX, AZ — A state senator is in hot water after making controversial remarks last week in an interview with Arizona Foothills Magazine. The full interview, which is to be released Friday, includes contentious quotes on military service-members, the constitution, and defense spending. Senator Linda Lopez (D-29, Ariz.), a member of the Veterans and Military Affairs Committee, was apparently quoted during the interview as saying “the troops should just go fuck themselves.” Lopez continues to claim that her remarks have been “taken out of context” and that she is in fact a huge supporter of the U.S. military. It’s not the first time Lopez is being questioned for something she said. In the wake of the Gabrielle Giffords’ shooting, she told an interviewer that the shooter was “probably a veteran of Afghanistan.” The shooter, Jared Lee Loughner, had no military experience. Her most recent remarks come after a vote in the Committee to improve education benefits and mental health services for veterans of all service branches. Lopez opposed the bill and was the only no vote, telling reporters that she opposed it on constitutional grounds. When pressed further, she admitted however, that “she hates the fucking constitution.” Minutes after making the remark, she told reporters that she misspoke and didn’t mean to use profanity. “I only voted no on the bill because I support the troops, but don’t support the war,” Lopez said. “Besides, if these numbskulls would quit enlisting, we wouldn’t need to support the stupid fucks. That last part’s off the record, by the way.” Lopez has maintained that the full context of her interview quote was about supporting the troops and giving them fleshlights as a way “to go fuck themselves in the warzone and at home.” Although The Foothills refuses to release Lopez’s full remarks until the interview hits news stands later this week, TDB did obtain partial transcripts. “Frankly, the troops should just go fuck themselves. Let’s be honest here,” Lopez remarks in the interview. “I’m really tired of these people complaining all the time.” Lopez is not the only politician who has made a gaffe during interviews or public events. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) once told a crowd that “he served in Vietnam” although he never deployed as a Marine reservist during the 1970s, and Representative Todd Akin (R-Mo.) recently came under fire after talking about “legitimate rape” and the female body’s amazing ability to defy biology. After TDB confronted Lopez with additional context from the interview transcripts, the Senator backtracked and attempted to explain further: “In my defense, I was responding to the troops’ demands for a constitutional amendment limiting elected offices to either veterans, uniformed police and fire personnel, or civilians who held conscientious objector status throughout their entire period of eligibility for selective service, with all others forced to wear velcro shoes and overalls,” she explained. “Fuck them.” She has since apologized for her remarks, saying that she “just went full-on retard with what she said.” Gregg Jones says: July 21, 2014 at 10:29 AM This may be farse journalism but just google Senator Linda Lopez (D-29, Ariz.), and you’ll see a lot of “journalism” about her insulting the vets and being just moronic. Nick Suddery says: July 13, 2014 at 6:14 PM Please tell my that these posts are satirical too…….. Jerry Boucher says: June 28, 2014 at 11:13 PM Why is it that it’s always dimorats calling our troops names like Nazi etc. and like this dem telling them to go fuck thierselves and then denying it afterwards. It’s no secret that the dimorats hate our soldiers. Anonymous says: June 10, 2014 at 10:43 PM Susan Rice read this and said “Hey, if it works for an Arizona Senator – claiming ‘quoted out of context’ – it should work for me.” John James Beech says: April 16, 2014 at 1:54 AM To that pig herself and more.

Ramona Ford says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM Now lets see what the main stream does with this one… after all she is a democrat. Eric Bauman says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM How can someone take the phrase “go F themselfs” out of context? Franklin Wayne Bell says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM just shows who the real haters are/ send her to afgan as see if she says that/. Adam Biagi says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM Satire yes, but not far from reality. Marny Bence Armstrong says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM This just proves that both sides have idiots who need to think before they speak. James Hancock says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM The parody aside, this woman would win any office she ran for in Oregon. TM Gibbons-Neff says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM How do you nominate someone for a pulitzer? This shit deserves a medal. Eileen Finnin Hargrove says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM See no humor in this. The Arizona Foothills Magazine is not satire publication. Chuck Haynie says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM Bet a buck this does not show up on ABC, NBC, or CBS. Sounds like Biden in drag. Freedom Seeker says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM Seems that “full on retard” is an adequate description of this vile “human being”. Gregory Johnson says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM well I would like to see the whole statement if the last paragraph is true, she may have a point. Bob Fonti says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM I looked up the C word and her picture was there! Michelle Georgevich Hellgeth says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM But then, maybe that is how they talk to each other in Mexico, which is possibly her roots. Ruthann Anderson says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM She is a complete asshole, WHY IS SHE STILL SENATOR??,maybe this will get her the BOOT!! Kate Hayball Buck says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM Ummm… what? How do these people get elected? Herb Fontenot says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM To me that is worse then Akin. At least he appoligized and more or less said he was a dumbass about women. A lot of men are. But not meeee. Kenneth G. Leggett says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM Absoultely hilarious in a politically incorrect sort of way. Allen Hawkins says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM just goes to show you that dumbasses beleiive everything they read… John Maschka says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM Daron, if anyone would instantly recognise stupid, you’re the man. This is so typical Dem/Liberal. Sailor Hill says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM Please READ what this site is about, it’s SATIRE!: http://duffelblog.wpengine.com/about/. Randell Stephens says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM hilarious… seriously people? Freedom Seeker says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM Now that I understand that this is satire, I re-read it and I have to admit that it is halarious, in a dark, baffling kind of way. Belanne Pibal says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM Oh goodness! They got me. it’s just a parody site. How appalling that such a thing is believable. What have we come to as a nation. The lesser of two evils is still evil. Dustin W. Taunton says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM If this is a joke, This is no time to be joking like that. If it’s not a joke(my thoughts) then this worthless bag of shite needs to be taken out. John McLeod says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM What we have here is an elected State Senator who hates our great Military and the Constitution of our great Country. When is the next election? Kevin Hitt says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM Boy are you clowns in trouble at the Duffle Blog…. be prepares to be wiped out financially and professionally. David DiCrescenzo says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM This isn’t funny at all. It should have been labelled as satire. We have enough problems on both sides without spreading such bs. Give me a break. Norbit Peters says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM This is like being blind-sided in “The Sting”, with no indication that the “fed” was working with Paul Newman! Bill Brady says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM If this was the Onion we’d know it was satire up front, but most of us have never heard of the Duffel Blog and this is only marginally worse than than the real news lately. Tam Adams says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM “The American Military’s Most Trust News Source” – Sounds like FALSE ADVERTISING to me. Vivian Bennett-Cohan says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM Just remember. What she said is not half as bad as the word used by Akin..He used the word LEGITIMATE… can’t get any worse than that! LOL…. R/R… 2012 JamesBergdahl BenghaziTerry Richards says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM There are still those who think Hoanoi Jane is a patriot Barbara….this one is just a bit more outspoken with the same feelings as the poacher in the white rent house. Mark Pacheco says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM For those of you that actually believe this “news” story, please keep in mind that Arizona’s two senators are John McCain and Jon Kyle (both Republicans). Joseph C. Rief says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM Before anyone can be elected to Political Office…It Should be a Mandatory Requirement to Crouch in a Foxhole and Fear for your Life from Hostile Enemy Fire…Period! Stephen UwasaWahya Cline says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM I have to give her credit for saying what many politicians think but won’t say. At least we know where she really stands. To be honest I’m tired of hearing politicians say “We owe our veterans a debt that we can never repay” and do nothing. John D. Izzo Jr. says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM Judging from the majority of the comments to this article, I might be inclined to agree with her, you know…if it wasn’t fake and all F***ing idiots. Grime Busters Pressure Washing says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM Obviously this is what the left wing lunatics consider “funny”. Thank God I have my businesses to operate. Must suck being a liberal with nothing to do but wait on your welfare check. Jimmy Mishoe says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM I would fuck her up for saying that she would wake up one nite and say to her husband I smell smoke put that kunt out of office jimmy the sniper. David Gulliver says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM Seeing as how she is real politician and there are YouTube videos of her saying crazy shit about republicans being in the Taliban, it is easy to understand why people would believe this is true. Melissa Churchman says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM So in trying to appologize for insulting the troops, she insults handicapped people. Nice work. Using “retard” now days is the same as using the “N” word. Lady, you are one hate filled piece of work. Alice Knope Davidson says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM The Duffl Blog needs to clean up it’s act then! How stupid can people be? We are retired military and do not appreciate your humor or so called satire, I suggest you try some other outlet for your humor! Gilbert Jennings says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM I’m a Democrat, but if Senator Lopez actually made that statement, she should be packing and getting the hell out of New Mexico. Kevin OL says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM Wow I hope the troops and thier familes in her district show her the door for good obviously she hate the troops and what we do, so she should be in office. Daniel Barton says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM This shit is fucking awesome…..I still don’t know what’s better the article or some of the comments lol. Willie Dove says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM How is it that Linda Lopez (D) Arizona can make such statements and continue to serve the citizens of the district that elected her to represent them. There is very little to be said about this person. I could not tag her name with Senator getting ill. Michelle Dawn Lotz-Lynch says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM Brant guillRoy, you are just bashing your head against a brick wall saying it over and over, they just don’t want to listen. The are so consumed with their own personal hatred that they will believe anything…listen up stupid fucks…it’s not real. See now I bashed my head as well. Michelle Georgevich Hellgeth says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM can somone explain to me how this could possibly be a joke. The F word used in the capacity of a State Senator is TOTALLY inappropriate. Anyone who thinks this is funny, THEY need to turn off their computers and come back when they learn about civility. Rick Jason says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM You don’t joke about our military that way, even if she was joking. It’s POS like her and her supporters that need to go F–k themselves. On second thought, the real Americans will take care of that when the Illegal Alien in the WH declares martial law this Fall. Pucker up, traitors! Your day is coming! Dane Lowrie says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM I think part of the confusion is that the state senator’s views are completely believable for a liberal politician, most people have never heard of this Web site, and humor sites tend to be funny. When The Onion does this type of thing, most people recognize that it’s a joke. Julia Hugo Rachel says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM I think this article poignantly points out how democrats feel about our Military. It is up to TDB to bring us the leatest, greatest reporting on these matters. Thank You TDB, for bringing attention to how this elected official “really feels”. Her use of Thh F0bomb was quite prolific. Should she be fined for such language? Another great story! lol Freedom Seeker says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM It’s unfortunate that the military is FORCED to accept degenerate Marxist liberals who have no respect for the American people, the uniform or the Constitution. Just a bunch of socialists freeloaders who needed the bonus money. I will continue to defend “true” soldiers when they are viciously attacked by Marxists liberals. George Wilhelm says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM Over the last 4 years, I have asked all Satirists to take the next few years off… with the regime in DC, and their marxist psychophants in the Senate (and the House), it is too hard to tell where Reality Ends and the Satire Begins! Kurt Montandon says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM I’m enjoying this article… primarily because of how utterly and completely stupid it’s making so many Teabagger morons look. I mean, good god… just pathetic. Do you people also think The Onion is real? And no, it’s not “believable because Democrats are weak on national defense.” Republicans haven’t had any credibility on national defense since “Operation One-Up Daddy” in Iraq. Or maybe since Iran-Contra. Or Grenada. Or… well, I could go on. Joi Carruth says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM ” If these numbskulls would stop enlisting……” When I enlisted it was done to better myself.And trust me when I say it wasn’t done to make sure your dumbass had the right to run for any political office. Ms Lopez, you’re right up in line with Mr Akin and his equally dumbass staetment about ” legitimate rape” There is nothing legitimate about either of you. Perhaps you serving time in the military would open your eyes; no wait, that would mean having to feed, house and train you.As to the pair of you…’ you can’t fix stupid. Jerome Padin says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM The overwhelming majority of democrats and all progressive democrats have an inbred disdain for everything military. This comes from their abject cowardice and the mistaken view that they are too important to serve in the military forces of the United States. From the few democrats I know, I will state clearly that I would not want to serve with any of them. They are simply to useless to have around, to incompetent to trust with any assignment of importance, and not worth the risk to good men and women of our military. Fernando Edwards Carcamo says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM There are conservatives and there are stupid conservatives. My comment applies to the latter. This article, the reaction by many of the commenters, and the steadfast refusal by those commenters to accept that this is a fake article by a parody site, despite all warnings to that effect, proves conclusively that stupid conservatives live in -and want us to live in- a paranoid, humorless, bitter, and angry world. We are so fucked if you ever get your way. I hope never to see that day. Michael Selves says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM I wonder how “funny” the writers of this article would think it was if the real Sen Lopez (NM) was attacked by some outraged veteran who didn’t realize it was “satire”. By the way, what was the purpose of this piece of satire, if not to get people stirred up? Satire should be over the top enough to be obvious, given the attitudes of the liberal zealots, this particular article is not. BTW, I’m a 20+ year military retiree, and I have difficulty seeing the value in this type of humor. I’m looking at the actual page as it appears when you click on the link. There is no statement saying this is a satire site. Doris Robinson says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM iI suppose a former Marine grunt…who thinks he’s funny…is a wannabe blogger and likes using the shock factor…has every right to write something as disgusting as this article. He singles out AZ..a state currently involved in a dispute over illegal aliens…. He relocates a Mexican Senator from New Mexico to AZ..just to exaggerate the situation… And then throws around f-bombs like confetti with no real purpose other than to beg for comments. I guess it worked..but it’s the last time I visit this site…no matter WHO recommends it. Allan Recticuli says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM She should have been more careful with the words she chose to use. Or she should have clarified her. meaning form the onset. What she said and did, she did it purposely. She is just another LIBERAL PROGRESSIVE COMPREHENSIVE SOCIALIST CATHOLIC COMMUNIST. Just another ethnic group sorry. group of people claiming that the GRINGOS (Americans) stole their land that they stole from the indigenous. groups that crossed over from the European land mass and in a way settled the American continent. Just trying to stir up more RACIAL prejudice to cause themselves to look important DAMN to aroma in the. land of the brave & the free has one hell of an odor, thanks to the CAMEL sniffer.

Jasmin Marentes says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM I think this ‘public servant’ ‘momentarily’ forgot she is ‘that’ a ‘public servant’ and should be voted out from the pedestal from which she thinks she’s standing! Danni Hable Wyatt says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM THIS is funny and satire? Apparently you young people do not recall what was said to and about the young men who fought in Viet Nam, and how many elected officials wanted to do away with benefits for veterans because of the war they fought in. Many vets read this piece and were horribly upset and for you to say that they were too ‘stupid to know it was satire’ actually proves how stupid, self centered , ignorant and cruel YOU are! I know of veterans who were incredibly hurt by these funny satirical comments. They are the same damn things said by many members of congress way back. I guess if you are ignorant of history you are doomed to repeat it, and this story just repeated a part of our history created by ignorant intolerant fools, that could not see the difference that soldiers have no choice of where and when they fight! Mike Trucksess says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM You know what would be awesome? Since it’s a satire site and all, why doesn’t everyone directly unrelated to the site start encouraging the people who think this is legit that it is? Post links to the most ridiculous articles you can find, express your outrage, get ‘em to start petitions on change.org, and have them share the stuff widely across their Facebook pages? I mean, this site would get a -hell- of a lot of publicity. Just sayin’. Erin Busic says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM She has since apologized for her remarks, saying that she “just went full-on retard with what she said.”. That by far is the best line ever!

She did say she went full on retard with that one so cut her some slack. Alastair Parker says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM Oh ma GAWD. This entire website is dedicated to making fun of anything and everything political or military… some people apparently need to understand this in order for us all to have a good time… Robert Neville says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM I found Linda Lopez’s sensitivity touching. She trained at Frank Burns Medical you know. Yes, she used to say “I wouldn’t mind being a doctor if I didn’t have to be around all these fucking sick people!” Cruel? Appalling? Perhaps, though I prefer to see her as a refreshingly honest left liberal. No, reallly. Colonel Neville. Anthony Murray says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM Why do the liberals get free passes on this stuff? If a conservative said anything this unkind or mean spirited toward anyone an UPROAR would be heard on the radio, internet, tv, newspapers, magazines etc. But if a liberal does it, uhmmmm you misunderstood. I did not say that. Or some other LIE. Liberals you are a sickening and disgusting segment of the population. Chris Austin says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2012/08/21/13396431-satirical-website-the-duffel-blog-dupes-news-sites-with-bogus-stories?lite Rick Pelosi says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM Passing this along. From the same cloth as this one of Oblamea’s hand picked clowns. CINDY WILLIAMS was appointed by Obama. As an Assistant Director for NATIONAL SECURITY in the Congressional Budget Office….. Military Pay This is an Airman’s response to Cindy Williams’ editorial piece in the Washington Post about MILITARY PAY, it should be printed in all newspapers across America. Ms. Cindy William wrote a piece for the Washington Times denouncing the pay raise(s) coming service members’ way this year citing that she stated a 13% wage increase was more than they deserve. A young airman from Hill AFB responds to her article below. He ought to get a bonus for this. “Ms Williams: I just had the pleasure of reading your column, “Our GI’s earn enough” and I am a bit confused. Frankly, I’m wondering where this vaunted overpayment is going, because as far as I can tell, it disappears every month between DFAS (The Defense Finance and Accounting Service) and my bank account. Checking my latest earnings statement I see that I make $1,117.80 before taxes per month. After taxes, I take home $874.20. When I run that through the calculator, I come up with an annual salary of $13,413.60 before taxes, and $10,490.40 after. I work in the Air Force Network Control Center where I am part of the team responsible for a 5,000 host computer network. I am involved with infrastructure segments, specifically with Cisco Systems equipment. A quick check under jobs for “Network Technicians” in the Washington , D.C. area reveals a position in my career field, requiring three years experience in my job. Amazingly, this job does NOT pay $13,413.60 a year. No, this job is being offered at $70,000 to $80,000 per annum………… I’m sure you can draw the obvious conclusions. Given the tenor of your column, I would assume that you NEVER had the pleasure of serving your country in her armed forces. Before you take it upon yourself to once more castigate congressional and DOD leadership for attempting to get the families in the military’s lowest pay brackets off of WIC and food stamps, I suggest that you join a group of deploying soldiers headed for AFGHANISTAN ; I leave the choice of service branch up to you. Whatever choice you make though, opt for the SIX month rotation: it will guarantee you the longest possible time away from your family and friends, thus giving you full “deployment experience.” As your group prepares to board the plane, make sure to note the spouses and children who are saying good-bye to their loved ones. Also take care to note that several families are still unsure of how they’ll be able to make ends meet while the primary breadwinner is gone. Obviously they’ve been squandering the “vast” piles of cash the government has been giving them. Try to deploy over a major holiday; Christmas and Thanksgiving are perennial favorites.. And when you’re actually over there, sitting in a foxhole, shivering against the cold desert night, and the flight sergeant tells you that there aren’t enough people on shift to relieve you for chow, remember this: trade whatever MRE’s (meal-ready-to-eat) you manage to get for the tuna noodle casserole or cheese tortellini, and add Tabasco to everything. This gives some flavor. Talk to your loved ones as often as you are permitted; it won’t be nearly long enough or often enough, but take what you can get and be thankful for it. You may have picked up on the fact that I disagree with most of the points you present in your open piece. But, tomorrow from KABUL , I will defend to the death your right to say it. You see, I am an American fighting man, a guarantor of your First Amendment right and every other right you cherish…On a daily basis, my brother and sister soldiers worldwide ensure that you and people like you can thumb your collective noses at us, all on a salary that is nothing short of pitiful and under conditions that would make most people cringe. We hemorrhage our best and brightest into the private sector because we can’t offer the stability and pay of civilian companies. And you, Ms.. Williams, have the gall to say that we make more than we deserve? A1C Michael Bragg, Hill AFB AFNCC. Dathan Benton Sr. says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM All of you guys are cry babies; liberals, conservatives, etc. The reason why this country is stagnate is because we can come together as a people and do what’s best for America. Noooo! That makes too much sense. We’ve gotta label everything so that the democrats bitch when the republicans get their way and vice versa. DO WHAT’S BEST FOR THE NATION, NOT YOUR POLITICAL AFFILIATION! John Anthony Sanuy II says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM this lady is a little over the top. Fuck ‘em. lol Jamie Howard says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM My Navy cousin turned me onto this site, and to everyone who takes this so seriously… I picked up that this was satire after the second paragraph. Thank you guys so much for this website, I haven’t laughed this hard in YEARS! Thanks for your service and sacrifices ladies and gentleman. Mike Harris Sr. says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM I’d give her my fleshlight, but hey, she looks like she has three or four up her ass already. Mike Hess says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM Daron, Are you Kidding me! She said it! Are you brain dead? Mike Harris says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM She is bitter at the notion that female servicemembers can now join the infantry and have the right to die for their country. When she was in she was used as moral support stationed in the male barracks. Michael Ricklin says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM hell, I realized it was not true as I started to read it…..dude, unplug your computer and go sit in the corner….. Tony Wright says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM To those who just get dropped in here by a link, there is no way to tell. We have politicians that say these things all of the time. The Onion is also at times taken seriously. and it become especially funny when they find it out. But outlandish will be the norm this season, so you will have a hard time out doing the real news. And since I have never herd of this site before now I have no way of knowing it is a parody site. You guys need to work on it more. Betty Thompson says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM If you can’t stabd behind our troopg stand in dront of them abd see if yhe enemu agrees with you? Ron Zara says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM WOW,… THIS WOMAN IS A DANGER TO HERSELF AND SHOULD BE AN EMBARRASSMENT TO HER CONSTITUATES. NOT ONLY DOES SHE CRAP ON OUR TROOPS, AND OUR CONSTITUTION, SHE THROWS A POLITICALLY INCORRECT SLAM ON THE MENTALLY CHALLENGED. PEOPLE SHOULD REMEMBER THESE STATEMENTS AT THE VOTING BOOTH! Betty Thompson says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM Please, let me handle this one, I am pro abortion ans]. d since this piece of ill formed DNA is not viable, I say let her be the first reto0active abortion. As for hating this contries laws and constitution. I will physically whoop your ass and sent you back to hell where you came from, Just give me a call, no this is not a death threat it is a “whoop ass” assuarance. David Watson says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM Full on retard. That sums up the democrat agenda. Sean Partee says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM I think this satire might have described a lot of state and federal senators. Kirsten Dresser says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM wow. what is her problem? Gary McPherson says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM YES THEY ARE STILL AMONG US. H. Turner Knight says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM HOLY CRAP BATMAN WHO’S SIDE IS SHE ON? Jerry M. Myers says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM I’m curious to see how this one plays out…. Jim Turner says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM “Full on retard”? Has she apologized for that one yet? Sagehopper Chism says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM All this language is a bit disappointing..Can ya clean it up a bit? Deedee Arnold says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM Maybe she needs to serve a little time as a soldier. Sebastian Goriesky says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM This Bitch should be puton the front lines. Then their be one less jackass in the world. Rick Pelosi says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM Maybe she should take a trip to afghanistan and let her go out with the troops for a tour. Rick Pelosi says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM She should go do the same to herself. I hope the people of AZ are seeing this poor excuse for a woman. Michael De Nomie says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM AHAHAHAHA! You guys crack me up. I’m still laughing my ass off over the USS Jane Fonda. Mike Winfrey says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM Well she can go F herself, I suspect she already does though. Margaret Trombley says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM The problem here is she uses her inside voice everyday saying this. Having a hard time finding the satire on this one. Ben Harp says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM actually this senator has said things like this in the past and needs to be removed from office. Glenn Griffith says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM This woman might want to rethink voting no on the mental health package, she could benefit from some mental help. March on Washington to Call for Obama to Resign says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM How were we supposed to know this was a joke when Joe Biden actually says things just as stupid? Mitchell Waylett says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM This IS FAKE but..she’s still a left wing loon. She blamed the Tea Party when Giffords got shot. Michael Moore says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM This stupid bitch should be forced to do cage matches with enlisted women on the USO circuit…then we’ll see what she has to say about our enlisted men and women. James DiNubile says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM How is it whenever a liberal democrat gets caught running off at the mouth the excuse is “I was taken out of context”? This bitch is not fit for public service! Linda Blue Lawrence says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM She should be removed from the Veterans and Military Affairs Committee. If she is not able to control her mouth why should she be entrusted to do such an important job. Shameful… Peter Kirk says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM isn’t that what we said after the Alamo? fuck them beaners,, let’s go fuck them up now! and then when we surrounded ol Santa Anna,, his last words were: oh fuck! I’m in deep doo-doo now! I should have just minded my own fucking business! I do believe I’m about too get fucked witout the benifit of a reach-around! Debbie Abbenante says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM I don’t see anything funny about this bitch saying this about our military or veterans! I am a Proud Air Force Veteran and I do take offense of the way she “thinks!” Term Limits! Eben Osgood says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM I know that most things on the Duffle Blog are just parodies or jokes, but with a legit media outlet cited, I can’t help but give this one some shred of fact. And no surprise from this, Obama has recently pushed to strip active duty and deployed military of the absentee voting rights. John Rosado says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM It is so amazing that the ones she condemns are the ones who have given their lives so she could say such stupid things. But then, she does not have the capability for good formalistic reasoning to understand just what her mouth does. David Clark says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM I wonder how many people actually called up her office and complained about her derogatory comments toward the military lol fuckin’ hilarious. Maggie McIntyre says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM I don’t believe this is satire! We’ve heard and seen way too many of these “gaffs” from elected/public officials for it to not be true. This is frightening to me, she doesn’t like the Constitution? This is the foundation of our society, and she “doesn’t like it?”! Then she shouldn’t have run for office to UPHOLD IT! Michael Savitski says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM I hope the voters of Arizona tell her to go f*ck herself next election day! Kenneth Weene says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM Totally irresponsible posting at your end. The writer should be banned from the site and you should publish a retraction on your masthead for at least a week. It is possible that the woman you name could, even though she is a public figure, sue for defamation. One last word – disgust. Dennis Duncan says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM How do vermin like this even get elected much less remain allowed to stay in office? They stand before the public with a big phony smile for all the cameras and take an oath of office swearing to defend the constitution and then F— the constitution? This is lying deceitful SCUM of the highest order. She makes your average garden variety corrupt politician look like a saint. Thomas Knaack says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM A TRUE supporter of the scum obama. Obama must love this bitch. But, hey, it is her right to feel this way and voice her opinion. Ironic that the very people defending this right for all of us are the people she maligns. As far as “hating the fucking constitution” she should be impeached and stripped of rights and pensions…not because she says it, but because she feels that way. Alice Knope Davidson says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM What a filthy mouth, what kind of people are serving in public office? How dare she make such a statement, this is sick, not satire! People are so cheap and coarse these days. When I read many of these comments also I am horrified! Surely there are enough words in the English language that we don’t have to use the “F “word when referring to others! Cheryl Macfarlane Wilson says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM This woman shows her stupidity and ignorance by the deplorable language she uses if in fact she has interjected the “f” word as reported. Why should anyone have any respect whatsoever for someone so stupid they can’t express themselves intelligently let alone in a civil manner.. How the heck did she get elected. Oh yeah, the hispanics voted her in.. little doubt. Patty Day says: January 3, 2014 at 3:10 AM First, a democrat – of course; but on the Veterans and Military Affairs Commitee? Yougottabekiddingme. Couldn’t find anyone better than this guttersnipe? Where did you find her, the democrat headquarters? That’s too many bad strikes – she needs to go. I don’t want to butt into their business, but lose this loser. She is better suited as either a college professor or a community agitator. My goodness, woman – what a mouth. I mean, I lose it sometimes but this seems to be her M.O. Pretty low class, girly – but cool earrings. That’s off the record, by the way. So much garbage, woman, and so little time. What’s in the water in Phoenix? Brt Combat says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM just like the female obama appointed to an office in DC. Made the comment that all vets coming back from the middle east are considered a terror threat to the united states. When confronted? Sher was back stepping and saying that’s not what she meant. She sdaid it as she meant it. These people and the ones like Lopez love their freedom but think it ok to bad mouth the troops. what the hell? they need to be thrown outta office on their ass’s. John D. Izzo Jr. says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM The great thing about the DB is that it shows just how little people actually read before making an opinion and speaking their minds; quite an interesting social science experiment. When a fake news site can be taken literally by so many people really is a sad commentary on the state of the american electorate/populace. Propatria Bellum says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM “Freedom Seeker”? This very liberal Democrat career Infantry Soldier takes great umbrage with your Tealiban psycho bullshit. This is a humor site, and you officially a no-go at this station. Mark York says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM Can you imagine that alot of conservatives took this to heart and passed it around as the truth? I just got this in my mail box from one of my misguided right wing friends. Thanks Daron Williams for stating the obvious. Charles Potter says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM As you peel back the layers, politicians show who and what they really are! In general all that matters is his/her position and when is the next election! StephanchuckNors Stenzel says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM She Depicts The DEMOCRAPS WITH PIN POINT ACCURACY! I’m NOT TALKin’ GUNS OR TARGETS! JUST ABOUT HER BIG MOUTH! LOL! All In Fun Right? lol Well you Can Take US FIRING HER And MOST ALL THE REST! IN NOV.2012 Just A Little SATIRE TOO! LOL WASN’T THIS FUNNY! I’m Just Sayin’ You Hippo’s Gotta Go! (HIppoCrits) Buster Locklear Sr. says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM Damn I love it when a liberal moron speaks the truth and it is put up for the whole country to read. if all of them would be as honest as this one, we would be reelecting the fools. that is without the few handout the stupid one wait for each month. Aidan Ross says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM Somebody please give DuffelBlog the Troll of the Century award lol. Newell Swartz says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM I don’t read satire and I didn’t know it came from a duffle bag. As for credibility. how many times do politicians screw up and than say “I didn’t do that, so let’s forget about it. Moving right along”. If we took every denial at face value, then Fife Symington, Evan Mecham, Carolyn Walker (Abscam) Scott Bumgardner and the local state reps recently retired under indictment would still be serving us wouldn’t they. As for using the F word in public, wasn’t it Don Rumsfeld or Dick Chaney who told amother congressman or senator “F— You” on the floor of the senate. So is it beyond the realm of possibility that Sen Lopez made a like comment. If the people who wrote it say is is not true, then that’s the end of the story. If the story is a lie, then the person who wrote it should be the one sitting in the corner. Steve Kirkeby says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM Can’t tell what’s funnier. The conversation”articles”, or the vast amount of cards that think these are real news stories. James Weisinger says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM what a stupid bitch. Michael Cinardo says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM Did she say it or not, Daron. Russell Kersey says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM THAT FUCK YOU WORD GOES TWO WAYS! Ron Hoffer says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM Maybe we can hear this dumb c*nt go f*ck herself. Jordan G. Cimino says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM Dey took ‘r jerbs! Thomas Knaack says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM PS…you do know that this is the military equivelent of the Onion…….. Cristina Hasigan says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM Senator Linda Lopez (D-29, AZ)should NOT be re-elected! Out with this traitor! Stephen A. Guerrera says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM Are you f#$%^&*g kidding me! This f#$%^&* bitch better hope she never comes within “striking” distance of my ass! Jonny Angel says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM Well let’s be honest here……….. this piece of crap has no justification for even being an AZ elected official. Brian Tucker says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM State of Arizona, County of ______________ I, ____________________ (type or print name). do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution and laws of the State of Arizona; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same, and defend them against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge the duties of the office of _______________________________ (name of office) ________________________ according to the best of my ability, so help me God (or so I do affirm). ______________________________________ (signature of officer or employee). This is the oath of office this useless POS affirmed and signed. Clearly she lied and deserves to be recalled immediately. Lynn Wharran says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM This comment coming from a member of the Veterans and Military affairs committee? Why is she even there? Get rid of this piece of garbage. Charles Hagen says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM I walk in pain. Every step hurts. I am OK with that…did it for the country I love. Vote this piece of trash out AZ. She does not belong in office. Dudley Toelke says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM Well I, for one, am absolutely satisfied with her “full-on retard” explanation. Sure glad that’s over with. Glen C Saunders says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM This is supposed to be satire….So why do they keep printing Liberals true thoughts? Dena Nukepad-dtome Stewart-Gore says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM Maybe Mizzzzz Lopez ought to take her own advice, we need the military just not this huge military indutrial complex that is costing us jobs. Sorry hon, you really stepped in it. I hope you lose your job- they’re SO HARD TO COME BY THES DAYS! Larry Gillreath says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM Sorry: I hope someone doesn’t get mad and severely beat the ever-lovin’ crap out of this diseased whore, in a dangerous alley, one dark moonlit night, sometime between now and November 6th! That would be just awful! Like I said before, I just hope this doesn’t happen to her! No sireee! Mohammed Mohsen Shaker says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM This is fucking bullshit, I can’t believe they said we whine! We don’t even ask for anything, but it should be YOUR job as a congress woman to NOT disrespect the servicemen who volunteered and deployed! If you don’t want to support the bill then all I have to say is shut your god damned mouth! TheLady Spencer says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM I really love to come to this site just to read the ridiculous responses. Yes the articles are well written, and yes, I completely appreciate satirical prose. But I truly, truly, enjoy seeing people mislead themselves. MaryandMike Lightfoot says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM FUCK Ms. Lopez! That’s not an error, and I won’t be recanting! How did this asshole fall through the cracks? “Support and defend the Constitution”. They/we all took the same oath. Some just don’t fucking get it. There’s no room for this moron anywhere near an active duty soldier or proud vet. Shame on you, you fucking myopic Cunt! Oh, maybe I mispoke. I meant to say, Goddamed Motherfucking Smellyassed CUNT! Jack Crack says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM Hilarious Mark Meed says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM The problem with writing satire in the current age is parody only barely precedes reality. Twenty years ago the satirical intent of this piece would have been self-evident — I mean what politician is stupid enough to drop F-bombs in a formal, well-recorded setting, right? Okay, BESIDES Joe Biden. Sondra Lintelmann Dellaripa says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM …but this IS funny Brandy Lynn Mccasland-Blain says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM It is just as inappropriate to use retard as an agitive. Get her sorry ass out of office. Feel free to stand behind our troops, or in front of them. Tony Gene Broxton Jr says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM sounds like to me she a shoe in for Obama’s Cabinet. What is wrong with New Mexico voting for someone with this type of thinking. remember mrs lopez the military has given you the freedom to run and you are as dumb as they come. Delores McRedmond says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM Even if you think it is a joke, it is not funny. Making fun of our military that fights for our freedom is no joke. It does show what this journalist is like in her mind to even think of it as a joke, and Daron you are a joke. You go sit in a corner and draw a circle and put your nose in it. Billy Withdraw-Consent Fulcher says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM Everyone should have to read this page from this website before being able to go any further. Most of you ass clowns are stupid enough to qualify as the low-hanging fruit that some come here to laugh at for being so naive… http://duffelblog.wpengine.com/about/ Rick Vanderwal says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM I know this is already three months old, but I went through a couple of phases while reading this. First, I split a gut laughing, not so much at the brazenness of this spoof article but at the variety of all the comments posted here afterwards. This article really pushed some buttons, but I can’t believe that so many people missed the point of this being a parody. Brought tears to my eyes! But after I stopped laughing I actually felt really sad – there is so much venom and vitriol, and the language that’s embraced here (and I don’t just mean profanity) show that people seem to have no respect for life or personhood. Had this actually been a real report, then I truly fear what some of us civilized people might have really done to the senator had they had the chance. We’re better than this, people, or at least we ought to be. Caroline Thompson says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM http://www.blackfive.net/main/2011/01/veterans-demand-an-apology-congresswoman.html Whiskey Tango Foxtrot says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM This is fucking amazing how some people don’t get it, seriously Whiskey Tango Foxtrot Over… People… for fucks sake, its satire and brilliant fucking satire at that, pull the fucking tampons out of your assholes… I’m a fucking hardcore conservative and can’t stand the libretards but Jesus even I get it…. Carry On Sergeant…. Joe Rosas says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM Who votes for these Illegal rejects? Mike Doglione says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM It’s amazing how many politicians have their comments taken out of context when called on the carpet. And why as voters do we allow this to happen–apathy–this countries biggest enemy–ourselves. We need to get these types out of office now. Get out and vote these POS out. Fernando Edwards Carcamo says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM I’m having a fantastic life at the expense of the people who are treating this as a legitimate news item. You prove the point resoundingly: Conservatives are interested only in the “shock and awe” and have no time for thought and substance. Brilliant piece. Gary Lvov says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM The Libtards are bashing Senator Aken (R-Missouri); it is only fair that this idiot gets some bashing too. Her comment is just as outrageous! “Fuck the troops”? These people are sacrificing and risking their lives protecting this retard so she could go out there and run her big fat mouth? How f….ing DARE you, Linda Lopez! Freedom Seeker says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM Is it lost on some of you military personnel that the people you are calling ” fucking idiots” are American citizens who are upset because they think the person is in this article is attacking and being disrespectful of you? people who are true patriots who respect the American military? Stop degrading and insulting those who have respect for the uniform and the sacrifices made by those who died for the honor of it. David Johansen says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM first off anyone who receives a paycheck from the government employ can not even jokingly speak out in any way shape or form against anything government related. you cant join a union and argue against it’s policy. secondly, like most everyonelse she has no idea it’s all a deception plotted against a party under hypnosis. Diane Saggus Overstreet says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM She should just resign….what an idiot…Senator Linda Lopez (D-29, AZ), a member of the Veterans and Military Affairs Committee. Cheryl Asche Weller says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM I am appalled that someone in public office would speak with such disrespect. Her language, disrespect for our troops and the Constitution, which she was sworn to uphold as a Senator, are enough to suggest that she should be REMOVED from office. There is absolutely no excuse for it! Jonn Lilyea says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM “Senator Linda Lopez of New Mexico, who is apparently not Senator Linda Lopez of Arizona.” See, you guys shouldn’t venture out into the real world. Al Pruden says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM That bitch should get cancer and die miserably! Sagehopper Chism says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM She makes Joe Biden seem like that Government Sage..AZ needs to dump her sorry a$$. Barbara J. Marion says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM I can’t believe that this woman is still allowed to represent WE THE PEOPLE. She’s a disgrace! Alan Rockman says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM I suppose this scumbag (what part of Arizona does she “supposedly” represents?) also was opposed to SB1070? Frankly she and her boyfriend Grijalva should be deported to those whom she does support. The ones who behead and kidnap… Justin Li says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM Holy shit, the stupid is hurting my head so badly. So, very, badly. Rosalyn Mason says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM Please Lopez, go sit your stupid un American traitorous ass down somewhere you didn’t misspeak you said exactly want you meant. Hopefully your constituents, if they have any sense will vote your dumb un American ass out. Brant Guillory says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM I probably shouldn’t have cut-and-paste-bombed all the commenters I did with the excerpt from TDB’s “about” page, but the level of stupid was making my brain hurt. Rosalyn Mason says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM HAHAHAHHAHHAHAHHA! Ok the jokes on me! You guys are so bad I really got pissed! But hey thanks for the laugh! Pete Morales says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM One of the funniest stories to come from duffleblog.com. I guess if your never served in the military you’d never see the humor in it, but then again maybe you’d have an open mind. Robert P. Wills says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM This might be off topic, but does anyone think that Linda girl is kind of hot? Or maybe it’s the T-Shirt Hell girl to the right. No wait, it’s the T-Shirt Hell girl to the right, sorry. Brandy Baron says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM Senator Lopez is the one who needs to go fuck herself! There is absolutely NO context in which it would be right to say “the troops should just go fuck themselves.”! This idiot very obviously thinks very little of our military judging by this and her previous statement stating that the shooter of Gabrielle Giffords was “probably a veteran of Afghanistan“. Who were the idiots who allowed this trash to be a member of the Veterans and Military Affairs Committee and when are they going to throw her out for this horrible disrespect of our military? Lopez needs to be put out of office! Rango Infantry says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM Too close to the truth. She was all hippy until she discovered how much military is in her state. Walt Stachowicz says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM Actually, the part about her assuming that Gabrielle Gifford’s shooter was a veteran is true. That put a big bullseye on her back for fake stories like this one. Donald Bricker says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM There is nothing funny about this kind of bullshit. She is supposed to represent all people, whether they be soldiers or civilians. Looks like it’s time that she go FUCK herself an it seems like a recall should happen. Judy Nicholson Neller says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM I wonder if she is always this charming! Tony Hanners says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM I say vote her sorry butt out and take away her check for life and if we didn’t have our military and we had lost to say Germany in the war I bet she wouldn’t be able to say what she wanted to say and lets face it when your angry or drunk you loose what control you have and then your true self comes out so f__k her and her obama way of thinking. Pete Lanteri says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM This is why I WANT it all to collapse. Cause then we will round up these anti-American commie/socialist assholes and hang them by their damn necks! Once that is done, then we can rebuild America with bright leaders again! Brian W. Burbank says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM I think these comments are even better than the one about the USS Jane Fonda. Well done Duffel Blog, well done… Joe Wommack says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM Another spoiled , career menace politician that hinders honest govt.They are part of the progressive disease that is running amuck! Jerry Beingesser says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM Fuck this fucking fuck. She needs her fucking neck snapped. Chinook Helicopters says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM She’s just the sign of the times, so fricken spoiled she has no clue where her freedoms come from, or who paid for them. BITCH! Steven Stippich says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM I can’t wait to read the comments on this one. Rick Christmas says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM And in a related story, all 335 members of the 923rd Trans Brigade masturbated into a 55 gallon drum to be delivered to the Senator in an effort to provide evidence they were following her instructions. Scott Collins says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM I know this is satire, I want that on the record. But anyone who rags on a soldier just because they are a conscience objector is an idiot. They serve their country working as Medics, Doctors, Chaplains, Administrative personnel, and many many more. The Military does much more then just kill the enemy, 3 soldiers are needed to support 1 combat soldier. Michael N Pat McElhinney says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM tick a fork in your ass Nic Spitulski says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM If you’re settings have you reading this comment first, take my advice, grab some popcorn and be careful sipping your beverage as you read on. A.j. Perry says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM It upsets me that the people who can’t figure out this isn’t real are allowed to vote. Michelle Dawn Lotz-Lynch says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM I wonder how many of you retards, typed off an angry email to the Senators office…lol, jokes on you since you are so wrapped up in your own political hate, that you don’t take the time to make sure it was a real story. Thanks for laughs. Daron Williams says: January 3, 2014 at 3:09 AM For all those that took this as serious journalism, instead of satire, you are officially too stupid to use the internet. Turn off your computer and sit in a corner now. Robert Sean Donovan says: November 13, 2012 at 10:23 PM Sorry but I can’t help you morons if you can’t read! Robert Sean Donovan says: November 10, 2012 at 6:59 PM Look at the Facebook about! You are described a NEWS board. NOTHING ABOUT SATIRE! sheesh! Robert Sean Donovan says: November 10, 2012 at 4:33 AM Apparently you folks did not read what I posted. There is nothing in “about” that explains this is satire. It calls itself news. Robert Sean Donovan says: November 9, 2012 at 12:31 PM If this is supposed to be satire, why does it describe itself as: “The American Military’s Most-Trusted News Source.

The Duffel Blog, The American Military’s Most-Trusted News Source, is updated daily with the latest news from the armed forces.” I personally don’t find it funny at all to dupe people with false reporting just for a laugh from sucking people in. Brant says: September 30, 2012 at 2:17 PM Linda – before you go ape-monkey-shit crazy, read the “about us” page at TDB http://duffelblog.wpengine.com/about/ Linda says: September 30, 2012 at 10:25 AM OMGoodness,,, I’d like to tell that POS where she can go face to face. How dare she & why is TRASH LIKE THAT IN OFFICE!!! I’m so making calls to make her life difficult not to mention passing this around to others. DocGay/James Gay says: September 29, 2012 at 7:07 PM DocGay-Maybe this BITCH needs to take a FLING FUCK IN A ROLLING DONUT.Noone cares for Dumbocrats anyway.Why you ask?Simple,Just look what our TROOPS have for a CIC.A God Damn MUSLIM.OH SHIT DID I SAY SOMETHING BAD ABOUT A MUSLIM?Well if they can’t take a joke FUCKEM.De Oppresso Liber Brant says: September 30, 2012 at 2:18 PM “OH SHIT DID I SAY SOMETHING BAD ABOUT A MUSLIM?” No, you said something stupid about the President in response to a satirical fake news posting. Ruth Cotter says: September 25, 2012 at 4:27 PM It’s hard to believe that a U.S. senator would tell the troops to go fuck themselves. But it she did, she should first try it herself. And well she should, as from the looks of her, no one else would want the job. Donald Mc Farland says: September 21, 2012 at 1:13 PM This CUNextTueday isn’t fit to hold high office. She should be thankful that we have young men and women who are willing to serve their country. Politicians like this are not worthy of the soldiers that are protecting them. Shes a frigging pig if you ask me and someone needs to beat her ass. Treasonous scum like this should not be allowed to hold high office. CUNextTuesdays like this need to be put on trial, convicted of high treason and put to death via hanging or firing squad. I hope she gets vaginal cancer, and I hope the cancer takes it sweet time eating her up. Then she can burn in hell. Brant says: September 30, 2012 at 2:20 PM Or, you could realize the entire thing is made up by a spoof news site http://duffelblog.wpengine.com/about/ Maluka says: September 5, 2012 at 5:30 AM Hey all, this Puta is from the San Francisco bay area and went to U of C Berkeley before moving to Tucson. Probably a “friend” of the dingbat pelosi. She is a rep for Pima and Santa Cruz counties. Pima is where Grijalva and Giffords are from. Both are probably members of the Democrap Socialists of America and possibly the CPOA. That is the Communist Party of America. It is right down their alley. Wouldn’t be surprised if the Puta is also a member of these two groups. Remember Giffords? She is the idiot member of congress that wanted the war in the sandbox to be fought as a green war. Grijalva is anti American so the whole area around Tucson is full of trash. Read before you spew says: September 19, 2012 at 5:27 PM Hey Maluka. You must be an idiot to think this story is real, but apparently you are so blinded by hate that you can’t see beyond the spew coming out of your mouth. Get a life. Go out and make a positive difference in your community instead of trolling the internet from your mom’s basement. jim fregeau says: September 3, 2012 at 3:40 PM thecitizens of arizona must demand immediate impeachment Brant says: September 30, 2012 at 2:21 PM impeachment of what? idiots who don’t recognize satire? Jim Fregeau, prepare to be impeached! Michelle Lotz-lynch says: August 26, 2012 at 10:13 AM I just reread this article for the 50th time and I still can not believe the insanity of the responses…my favorite line is Velcro shoes and overalls…I giggle every single time. Red Ghost says: August 24, 2012 at 9:27 AM Give it time. What is satire today will really come out the mouths of Leftist politicians in a few years. GI Zhou says: August 24, 2012 at 6:11 AM Shelly, Todd Akin called. He want’s you as his campaign manager. Old MP says: August 23, 2012 at 11:49 PM Why am I not seeing this on the Arizona Foothills website or Snopes.com? If its true- this biotch needs to go. If it ain’t- you are a sackless wonder. leftoftheboom says: August 24, 2012 at 6:55 AM Brilliant minds like yours are such a waste. Bob Brien says: August 23, 2012 at 6:45 PM Am enjoying the duffleblog. About time that someone did this. Richard Sprowl says: August 23, 2012 at 12:32 PM English Comp 101, read the goddamn warning/disclaimer at the top of the article DUH Rick Lind says: August 23, 2012 at 2:45 AM Hey hey hey hey!!! Hvave you guys heard this out there? I’m trying to verify it through FLEM-COM as we speak. There was this Army dude soldier who was out on the wires patrolin around doing patrol stuff and he got lost. He ran out of THEMRE’s after about, uh I don’t know, a few days and some other foreign guy who wasn’t lost found him before he died ans said “Hey soldier, you look lost and hungry.” The Army dude soldier said, “Hell yeah I am. Now give me some goddamn food before I fraggle your ass!” Well the foreign guy who wasn’t lost thought the Army dude soldier was a real prick so he said, “Let me get you some food and show you the way back. Don’t much feel like being fraggled today!” So the foreign dude got the Army dude soldier a can of food and pointed him in the right direction. As the Army soldier dudee was strollin back to camp, he was just about to the front door of the Army dude’s soldiering campgrounds when he realized that the foreign dude had givin him a can of canned dogshit instead of some other really shitty tasting food! He got scared that his other Army dude soldier buddies would find out so he hid the can in his ass and acted like nothing had happened!!! Can you believe that one??? leftoftheboom says: August 23, 2012 at 6:52 AM I cannot believe your complete lack of understanding of the English language and proper use of spelling and grammar. Look, the internet is free Haji, but really, if you are going to use it, learn to spell. Rick Lind says: August 23, 2012 at 9:39 AM Dang Leftboner. That’s freindless. I was only trying to sound like I was an Army soldier dude who was stupid enough to put an empty can of canned dogshit up his ass so his other Army soldier dude friends wouldn’t make fun of him for getting lost. Dang. That’s harsh. I think I’m going to quit the Army now. leftoftheboom says: August 23, 2012 at 7:00 PM Well you sound stupid anyway. You managed that part. “High Five”. Have a Scooby Snack. TWS says: August 29, 2012 at 10:37 AM But he tried. Doesn’t that count for…Oh fuck it it’s too early and I am too tired. Just send him a dictiononomy or Chicago Book of Style and I’m going to get some coffee. leftoftheboom says: August 22, 2012 at 10:41 PM I love this site. My absolute lack of faith in human intelligence has been vindicated. Jeff Bertram says: August 22, 2012 at 10:08 PM Send her to afganistan & take that fuckin sorry ass Obama with her. Allstonians says: August 22, 2012 at 7:28 PM I hate you guys…and your ass faces…you made me look like a dope… Bryan says: August 22, 2012 at 7:19 PM Oh so just because it was a democrat that said these things it is now not a true article ? lol… If it were a republican that made these statements the article would be real ? lol Armored_Infidel says: August 22, 2012 at 6:05 PM On TDB’s Facebook page, they have an audio clip from a radio show that reported this as a real story. The “analysis” by media people who think these stories are real is almost as funny ad the stories themselves. Rhyane says: August 22, 2012 at 5:33 PM Oh hell. *got me*. Jerry says: August 22, 2012 at 4:40 PM Lopez Someone needs to check that bitches green card Just me says: August 22, 2012 at 3:22 PM I don’t know what is funnier .. the article or the number of brain dead people who didn’t realize it was satire …. MoneyShot says: August 22, 2012 at 2:01 PM LOOOOOUD NOISES! firstname.lastname@example.org says: August 22, 2012 at 1:30 PM And here is why lions eat their young. Ignorance is bliss.. how can that be “taken out of context”?? Being a vet I am not the least bit personally offended, I more so feel bad for someone that is that ignorant and has a total disregard for others when she is in a influential political position… worse yet, someone voted her in! “Politicians Can Go Fuck Themselves”… don’t take that out of context.. Albert Crash Parr US Army TypicalDEM says: August 22, 2012 at 1:33 PM You make me laugh friend. You do know that NONE of this story is true right? Allstonians says: August 22, 2012 at 7:31 PM the90…I was passed this article and took it for real…I am so ashamed that I did…I wish someone would create a sarcasm font! I got it from a person who I usually trust but never will again. In the rush to paint the opposition in the worst light, we sometimes overstep. I still love my friends with whom I disagree…I am glad everyone does not think like me! Shelley says: August 22, 2012 at 12:12 PM I am so tired of the media and the current administration implying that We The People are to ignorant and illiterate to understand what they mean when they say something. It is always “misconstrued”, “misquoted”, “taken out of context”, or they were just “joking”. If we want to continue to enjoy our freedoms and celebrate our differences, we can no longer allow this administration to divide us. It doesn’t matter what your race, religion, sexual orientation, education, political party, or economic status is — the one thing we all have in common, the one thing that binds us together is the fact that we are AMERICANS protected by the Constitution. I believe, “that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”, and that if we want to continue to exercise these rights we must stand UNITED against this administration. UNITED WE STAND – DIVIDED WE FALL! God Bless America!! We DID build it, and now it is up to US to defend it! The Constitution and our military deserve our respect! radglock says: August 22, 2012 at 12:26 PM Damn, as I was reading your comment, I suddenly burst out in a rousing rendition of “Proud to Be an American”, an eagle actually flew out of my can of Budweiser and immediately depacitated the closest Arab, then I went out and got another moto EGA tattoo on my face. Thank you. I love it when people proudly pontificate on political passions on satirical sites. Sonia says: August 22, 2012 at 1:25 PM I hope you are not in the military. TypicalDEM says: August 22, 2012 at 1:32 PM See, there you go again. Not everyone in the military is a Republican. Can we be friends? radglock says: August 23, 2012 at 3:34 PM Actually, I was in the Marines for twelve years. Now I help facilitate purchases of weapon systems that other countries use to destroy each other. It’s truly a wonderful and fulfilling career. To tell people that I’m a direct contributor to the annihilation of people we see on CNN makes me as giddy as a schoolgirl. Besides, it’s a growth industry. Lots of job security. I’m also a staunch conservative. However, I would much rather laugh at a funny story than preach to the choir about politics. There are other sites for that, such as: Infowars, Huffington Post, The Hill, Disney, etc etc….. TypicalDEM says: August 22, 2012 at 1:35 PM The visuals of this comment alone made my morning. I have to ask though….we’re you in your underwear and do you have a mullet? radglock says: August 23, 2012 at 3:37 PM Once I left the Marines, I instantaneously grew a mullet. I think it is genetic due to the fact I am from Indiana. I still haven’t figured out how to surgically remove this can of Milwaukee’s Best from my hand, though. It gets in the way when I shoot at vermin from my porch. TWS says: August 29, 2012 at 10:27 AM I just had to sing ‘America Fuck Yeah’ after reading that. Darrell B says: August 22, 2012 at 6:28 PM I’m not sure if that comment’s intent was to give me wood…. but it did. Now I have to masturbate to it. How does that make you feel? Are you proud? leftoftheboom says: August 22, 2012 at 10:36 PM Shelley said Men are endowed. WHOO HO. Getitright says: August 22, 2012 at 11:33 AM You have the wrong Linda Lopez Picture! That is Senator Lopez of NM in your article, not Senator Lopez of Az. JimS says: August 22, 2012 at 11:16 AM Must be something in the AZ water or air or maybe them duststorms, hard to tell some dems from almost all of the AZ tepubs when mouth opens! Robbie L. says: August 22, 2012 at 10:20 AM Even if it’s a joke it’s still in very poor taste. As an Army mom and a sibling of a mentally disabled person, these jokes are NOT funny. Our safety and the people of this country who have any kind of disability is not a joking matter. radglock says: August 22, 2012 at 12:18 PM and…..Robbie….wait for it….wait for it………SHUT UP. Allstonians says: August 22, 2012 at 7:33 PM Robbie, I agree. To label someone as saying they hate the Constitution without a label that says it is sarcasm, is dangerous. We know that Justice Ginsberg does not like our Constitution which led me to fall into a carefully set trap. I am ashamed but we should all check our sources! My thanks to your Army child! I am honored to know any serving American. leftoftheboom says: August 22, 2012 at 10:34 PM Which sibling was disabled? Cause one of you cannot read. Lthrnek89 says: August 23, 2012 at 12:03 PM @ Robbie L. …have you learned nothing over your many years. You can’t walk into a locker-room and be offened of what you hear or see. As a mother with son in the Army and having a disabled sibling….these jokes are not funny- DO NOT get started here. YOU just exposed (2) chinks in your armor. You, your son, your sibling…TOO EASY! “The Marines I have seen around the world have the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen. Thank God for the United States Marine Corps!” YOU have NO idea of the what lives in the barracks and the abuse that can come upon you… Good idea says: August 22, 2012 at 10:06 AM Lol I wonder if this lady did something to deserve the DB treatment. I feel bad if she didn’t. Kind of. bob says: August 22, 2012 at 9:40 AM Are you sucking up for a libel lawsuit? Rezz909 says: August 22, 2012 at 9:10 AM LOL, Almost got me, good one… Michelle Lotz-lynch says: August 22, 2012 at 7:26 AM I was really starting to get mad about how many retards are out there who actual believed this was a real story. Please people find out about the site before you take it as gospel. The amount of hate you people showed is disturbing and is a classic example of an angry mob gathering just because of a rumor. Shame, shame, shame but I hope you learn something from this (not just that you are a full on retard) but that you vet out your sources before you make a comment. CPT 2003 says: August 22, 2012 at 7:33 AM You know Michelle – leaving pithy and satirical comments on this site is almost as fun as reading the pithy and satirical stories – this stuff is GREAT!!!! Michelle Lotz-lynch says: August 22, 2012 at 7:43 AM I know, I love this site more than 3,000 suns but holy shit, there are some dumb fucks out there and it gets annoying when they don’t understand after the first 59 people tell them it’s satire, it’s like they don’t know what a dictionary is, Gomer says: August 22, 2012 at 3:30 AM What’s sad is I could easily see this as a real event. Sonia says: August 22, 2012 at 10:59 AM That is what I was thinking, Gomer. The reason that people can’t see that it is a joke is because it accurately reflects the Democrat Party. Many people expect this from the Marxist “liberal party. This is how low things have sunk in this country, that people actually believe a “democrat” aka communist would say something like this. If you had written this about a Republican, folks would have definitely questioned it, but they no longer question this type of behavior from the other side. In fact, this is expected behavior. That is scary! TypicalDEM says: August 22, 2012 at 1:30 PM As a typical Democrat, I must object. Sonia, do you know what a Communist/Marxist is? Oh, and by the way, I’ve been in the military for nine years now. This in no way reflects the Democratic party. IT’S FUCKING SATIRE. You ask 99% of the Democrats you meet and they will tell you they support servicemembers. They may not agree with the conflicts they are brought into, but they will support those who make the sacrafice of volunteering so they are not drafted into service.

At least she doesn’t give you the hope of a reach around after she fucks you in the ass. Ha ha Mike C says: August 21, 2012 at 11:49 AM “The content of this site is parody. No composition should be regarded as truthful, and no reference of an individual, company, or military unit seeks to inflict malice or emotional harm.” This is directly from this website for all of you that don’t know. This website is a parody website, meant to be humorous. As a Veteran myself, serving 9 years in the Marine Corps and doing my time in Afghanistan, I personally love this site. Makes me crack up everyday!! Darrell B says: August 21, 2012 at 11:30 AM Regardless of what she says or doesn’t say, how she votes, or her opinions on the military or war, as a veteran, I will tell you now – I shant be judged or led by someone wearing anal beads as jewelry (again). That is all. dwadafam says: August 21, 2012 at 4:25 PM I hope she at least cleans them before wearing them out in public. Kevin McQuade/no hero says: August 31, 2012 at 1:45 PM You jissm Sed a MOUTH FULL CTC says: August 21, 2012 at 10:51 AM Her language, her disrespect for our troops and the Constitution, which she was sworn to uphold as a Senator, are enough to suggest that she should be REMOVED from office.

Major Major Major says: August 21, 2012 at 9:48 AM You want my Fleshlight? You’ll have to pry it from my cold, dead hands! Jerry Beingesser says: August 21, 2012 at 10:47 AM LOL Good one.

Wzrd1 says: August 25, 2012 at 2:06 AM Hmmm, fleshlight or weapon in a combat environment. Well, the enemy has plenty of weapons waiting to be taken. KEEP that fleshlight before the goat gets it! Lance says: August 29, 2012 at 4:08 PM You want my fleshlight? You’ll have to pry it off of my cold, hard cock. Duncan says: September 9, 2012 at 11:11 PM Literally—cause it’s sticking to them.
