Moonbats’ Heads Explode Over Marine Crusaders

A culture ashamed of its own religion and history has an obvious psychological disadvantage on the battlefield. Yet since it’s a pillar of leftist ideology that Muslims were the good guys during the Crusades, moonbats at blowing gaskets over this:

A recent decision by the Marine Corps to reinstate “Crusaders” as the name of its Fighter Attack Squadron 122 — replacing “Werewolves” — and adopting the red cross of the medieval Knights Templar was blasted as unconstitutional and willfully ignorant by a civil rights group Wednesday. …

VMFA-122 based out of Beaufort, S.C., used the Crusaders symbol from 1958 up to 2008…

That’s when it was changed to Werewolves to be more politically correct, since our rulers would rather have us identify with evil supernatural creatures that degenerate into animals than with heroes who took the fight to the enemy on behalf of Western Civilization during Islam’s long centuries of relentless forcible encroachment on Christendom.

Dozens of military members, including Marines in the affected squadron have contacted MRFF reporting that the name has been changed back, and that the symbols had already been painted on the vertical stabilizers of the F-18s.

Whimpers Mikey Weinstein, founder of the militantly anti-Christian Military Religious Freedom Foundation:

“They’re being told, ‘the enemy gets to have Allah in their fight. We need to get our Lord and Savior back into our fight.'”

Lt. Cmdr. Wade Weigel explains it differently:

“It’s a way for our Marines to draw on the service of the Marines before them, and to make their own history under the same name. As the squadron prepared to celebrate its (70th anniversary), my intent was to return the squadron to the Crusader name since 50 of the squadron’s 70 years were under that name. The name change is a reflection of our heritage.”

If there is one thing liberals hate, it’s heritage. Naturally they are threatening legal action. Maybe they can get the name changed to the Flying Dhimmis.

Deal with it, moonbats.

    Is there any leftist alive that understands the Constitution on any level?


  2. Winston Smith says:

    The Navy should bring back a this plane with a new design keeping the name. That would make even more heads explode.

  3. Winston Smith says:

    Next thing you know they will be complaining about the Navy’s Blue ANGELS (Angels? sounds too Christian) or Armys Golden Knights – logo looks like a Crusader.

  4. Joe says:

    Are lefties capable of doing anything but whining and sniveling. Shut the F up already. Get a job.

  5. whotothewhat says:

    Anything that will make lefties heads explode is a great thing indeed. But how is a Marine Attack Squadron name change a unconstitutional? What a asshat. Besides Werewolves moniker was used during WWII by the Nazi’s

    “a commando force which would operate behind enemy lines as the Allies advanced through Germany itself”.

    Better to associated with Crusaders then the WWII Nazi’s, which were also the buddies of the Islamist of the time.

    hey, did all you guys order your ‘Pork Eating Crusader’ patch yet? There might still be a backlog on them. I’ve got mine pinned up right here in the kitchen/great room bulletin board for all to see. ha ha. go pack sand hippies.

  7. QuietMan says:

    We also had an artillery piece with the same name cancelled. It was a fine cannon, and would have visited such wrath on the True Believers that Charles the Hammer would have risen up.

    “Next thing you know they will be complaining about the Navy’s Blue ANGELS (Angels? sounds too Christian)…”

    You are right about that! The word “angel” has been omitted in a recent, politically correct, (so-called) Bible:

    “A new translation of the Bible into English does not contain the name ‘Jesus Christ’ nor the word ‘angel.’ It also prefers the word ’emissary’ over ‘apostle.’

    The Voice, a Bible that replaces ‘Jesus Christ’ with terms like ‘Jesus the Anointed One,’ had its complete edition released by Thomas Nelson Publishing last month.

    Frank Couch, Thomas Nelson’s lead editor on the project, told The Christian Post that the purpose of The Voice was to make the Gospel message easier to understand for modern audiences.

    ‘The Voice has not claimed to be more accurate than any other translation, rather it is more easily understood than any other translation,’ said Couch.

    ‘When translators are limiting themselves to conveying the complete essence of a word from the Hebrew or the Greek with one English word they have difficulty bringing in the nuances held in the original language.'”

    Of COURSE we can’t say “Crusader” or use the cross. It might offend…or even worse…scare the enemy. That wouldn’t be fair or proper. Same goes for those photos of our soldiers posing with body parts from a dead terrorist. How AWFUL. How UNKIND. The terrorist should have been treated with respect and given a burial with full military honors…right?

    Man, if it were up to me, I’d paint big crosses on all tanks, jets, ships, helmets, uniforms…make ’em ALL Crusaders!

    Let’s face it…this country is afraid of victory, afraid to be the best, afraid to say “We’re right, you’re wrong”.

    Man up before it’s too late.

  10. FrankW says:

    Maybe we should call the new squadron the Rainbow Skittles. It would appeal to both the gays and the race-baiters. The unit {cue gay snickers} could be designated HIV-99 instead.

  11. Archonix says:

    Jodie, you do realise that “Christ”, from the greek Χριστός (khristós) literally means “anointed one”, right?

  12. Jodie says:


    Yes…but what’s wrong with Christ? Especially right NOW?

  13. chuck in st paul says:

    So why are we still translating from the second hand Greek writings instead of the original Aramaic?

  14. Jodie says:

    And furthermore…to change the wording of the Bible in order to appease the weak and not offend the Muslims is blasphemy.

    There are people today who say that Jesus was married and had a son (outright lie). There are also those who say that Jesus didn’t actually die from the crucifixion, but that he was poisoned and passed out for three days (another outright lie). These are acts of blasphemy aimed at changing history and making Jesus less relevant.

    There are plenty of existing great translations of the Bible – we don’t need this social justice, anti-Christ, Chrislam garbage.

    I was going to say…glad they aren’t flying F8s.

    What Liberrhoids

  17. dapenguin says:

    would the new motto be

    Templar Fi ?


  18. Jay B. says:

    Religion aside, a shield with a crusader cross is a lot more badass thana werewolf…

  19. J says:

    Let’s name a squadron the Jihadists, and see if the unhinged left hyperventilates.

  20. Marmo says:

    I love it. The Crusaders. I’m amazed the Dog-Eater in Chief hasn’t stopped this from happening.

    The Crusaders knew a threat when they saw one. ODumbShit can’t bring himself to call an enemy an enemy. Must be because he relates with them more than with normal mainstream Americans.

  21. Jimbo says:

    It’s nice to know something besides a 160 grain 30.06 slug will explode a communist dipshit’s head.

  22. Jeanine says:

    Onward Christian Soldiers!

  23. TED says:

    Only thing wrong with the Crusades was they didn’t last long enough.
