One of the speakers at the Democrat National convention last week was, Khizr Khan, the father of Captain Humayun Khan, who was killed in Iraq in 2004.
He wasted no time getting to part where he slammed GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump. I’m sure he spent ample time on preparing that part…
However now, U.S. Marine and Navy veteran, Chris Mark, has issued a response that destroys Khan’s claims against Donald Trump.
The letter is… BRILLIANT!
He opens up the letter by first, showing respect for Khan’s son and the sacrifice he made for his country. Even referring to him as a ‘true hero’.
THEN…comes the truth bombs!
Does it matter whether Mr. Trump has sacrificed “…nothing and no one?”…has Ms. Clinton “..sacrificed” for this nation? How about Mr. Obama? Your comment stating that Mr. Trump “…has sacrifice no one” is alarming. Are you intimating that YOU sacrificed? Sir, your son willingly sacrificed himself. As a father I cannot imagine the pain you must feel but his sacrifice is his own. He was not forced to serve.
I am troubled that you would allow a party that has little more than contempt for the US Service Member to parade you into the DNC to denounce Donald Trump. Did you watch when protesters at the DNC booed and heckled Medal of Honor recipient Capt. Florent Groberg? Did you notice your party interrupting the moment of silence for slain police officers? Your own hypocrisy in not denouncing these acts and instead using the DNC as a platform to make a political point is disgraceful. The simple fact is that whether one served or sacrificed does not give greater power to their statements. One vote is as valuable as another. That sir, is why our Country is great. Your condemnation of one person for a statement while standing idly as your party disparages veterans and police officers is the height of hypocrisy.
Mark goes on to remind Khan that Donald Trump said “Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life”
Then he went on to point out the irony in Khan’s own Son’s death at the hands of the same people, and how it can NOT be ignored.
I have little doubt that your son would have recognized the need to protect our country from these very people. In fact, he held is own troops back so that he could check on a suspicious car. Your son understood sacrifice and how to protect “his people”…’his soldiers’….’his fellow Americans’…
In closing, Mark brought it home with a challenge to Mr. Khan. He asked that Mr. Kahn consider his comments and his position more closely on the party that has very little regard for his own son’s sacrifice, and for veterans in general.
STOP EMBRACING THE ‘STUPID’ AND IGNORING THE FACTS…
Mark made very crucial points. The fact that Trump’s position on protecting our country from terrorism is comprehended by the left as threatening, is asinine. Is our safety not important? A good leader strives to protect their people. Why is it that Trump is getting the 3rd degree for wanting to do just that?
Because…the left is doing what it does best. Twisting the truth and wrapping it in layers of lies to get what they want….
Khan during his speech even held up a copy of the Constitution and had the audacity to tell Trump he needs to read it. Truth be told, it is Khan himself who is in desperate need of knowing what the Constitution truly stands for…maybe then he will understand that keeping Americans safe can come without sacrificing ‘liberty’.
That Khan does not truly understand why his Son has made such a sacrifice for his country, is actually quite heartbreaking. This letter is written so eloquently, that there is hope through Mark’s words. Hope that maybe Kahn can really come to see the truth.
