Daily Kos Bashes Captain Phillips, Says He Should Have Given in to Pirates

Far left Daily Kos blog could hold it in no longer.

Today they lashed out at hero Captain Phillips

“The pirates’ modus operandi is that they hold the crew, ship, and cargo harmlessly until a lot of money is paid to them. Phillips “heroic” actions put his crew and himself at risk. If he’d done nothing except acquiesce to the pirates’ demands, there would have been no risk, just possible discomfort until the extortion money was paid. Instead he put himself and the Seals at grave risk.

I applaud the crew, the Seals, and the military chain of command for their actions. I think Phillips was in error–if not a grandstander, then greatly misguided. Does anyone know what Maersk’s orders to Phillips and the other Maersk masters are in a piracy matter? Probably to do nothing to incite trouble and to notify the shipowner and the U.S. Navy. The captain works for the shipowner and must follow those orders. The master who fails to follow the shipowner’s orders is guilty of the crime of barratry if a financial injury to the shipowner results.”

Only on the left are heroes like Captain Phillips, who put his life in danger for the freedom of his men, called grandstanders.

More proof that the Daily Kos is most far left, out-of-the-mainstream, trashy piece of crap blog out there.

Democratic politicians should be ashamed that they try to curry favor from Kos and his army of unpatriotic, hero-bashing, America hating thugs.

Revolting, but typical dishonorable, hateful Kos fare.

Since the current version of the Democratic Party is so close to Kos, I would like somebody, anybody to ask whether the Party stands with the heroes or with Kos?

  2. the pirates were going to kill Phillips. at no time were navy seals or anyone except Phillips in danger. the daily kos is piece of crap. i can’t believe i used to go on there but that was many years ago before the primary.
    remember when they kicked out pro-hillary bloggers?
    and they always end their post with some sappy feel good phrase. they are kool aid drinkers.

  3. Phillips and his crew understood that if they took no action, they would rot in the Somali desert. In full knowledge that diplomatic efforts would be handled by Clinton and Obama, the sailors knew that they were dead if they didn’t resist. Knowing that the two stooges of diplomacy would be running the negotiations provided quite a bit of motivation.

    So in a sense, Obama had a positive impact on the situation. His inability to handle a crisis provided inspiration for those on the scene to take necessary action.
