Democrats Photoshop Yet Another Picture (Updated)
Instead of a US soldier on their "Bush Doesn't Support The Troops, Bush Sucks" webpage, they photoshopped a Canadian soldier and rubber stamped the badge from the beret.
Here's the actual photo that the Democrats altered:
LGF and Michelle Malkin have the demolition of this ridiculous lie. More at Florida Cracker and Blackfive.
Yep. The Democrats support the troops, but their supporters and their webmasters are too stupid to distinguish a Canadian troop from an American troop. What's worse, is that the Democrats think that a) their followers are too stupid to tell the difference (which has been shown), and that b) the right-o-sphere wouldn't notice as well. In other words, Democrats wouldn't know the "troops" if the troops came up and put a size 10 up their backsides.
This is an absolute disgrace, but typical of our "party of sexual morality, troop-boosters, honesty and clarity."
See for yourself. It is the official Democrat Party website.
These folks are a disgrace, people. Thanks, Pelosi and Co. Can't wait for your Reign of Terror.
UPDATE: Charles Johnson got an email from the photographer, who admits he touched-up the photos because of copyright issues. The original point still stands - the Democrats can't tell the difference between a Canadian troop and an American troop:
Hi,Florida Cracker had it right: "Never ascribe to malice what can be explained by incompetence (as I need to keep telling my own self)."
Some of you asked me about the photo in question. I am the one who took these pictures. So to clarify some things:
I am selling my photos at Istockphoto.com which is by the way a nice and affordable site for buying photographs.
So the Democratic Party should have bought the photo on this site. Yes, he is a canadian soldier. Now, Istockphoto doesn’t accept photographs wich contain certain copyrighted elements like brand names, insignia, etc. Therefore I myself got rid of the insignia on the soldiers cap when I put it on for sale.
Regarding the second photo, on which the same soldier is smiling , the insignia is there on the cap, but if you zoom on it, you will see that it is blurred out, so copyrighted elements are not visible. Again I did that myself because of the above mentioned reason.
I hope this clarifies some things,
And please, if you use my photos, buy them at Istockphoto.com They are copyrighted.
So - Genuine fauxtography / alteration on part of Democrats? Nope. Incompetent idiocy compounded upon their rhetorical bloviations about their "support" for troops they can't recognize? Check.
