Who’s the greater Fools? The Fools, or the Fools who follow them?
As a Navy Brat, I take my patriotism and love of the United States of America very seriously, as do millions of Americans. But there is one group which wears its patriotism on its sleeve and conjures up imagery which is supposed to convey that they, too, care for our Armed Forces.
Nothing is further from the Truth, and that group is, of course, the Demo☭rat Party. Witness this glorious display near the close of the convention, before the SCOAMF takes to the stage to heal the land and stop the wildfires:
The problem with this photo is: those aren’t American warships. They’re Russian:
The background — featured in the carefully choreographed hour leading up to the president’s Sept. 6 speech accepting the Democratic Party’s nomination — showed four ships with radar designs not used in the U.S. fleet.
For example, the ship in the foreground, on the far right, has a square radar antenna at the top of its masthead. That is the MR-700 Podberezovik 3-D early warning radar, commonly identified as “Flat Screen” for its appearance, a three-dimensional early warning radar mounted on the Kerch, said Eric Wertheim, editor of “Combat Fleets of the World.”
Similarly, the third ship has a MR-310 “Head Net” air search radar, shaped like two off-set bananas, at its masthead and is mostly likely the guided missile destroyer Smetlivyy. The first two ships seem to be Krivak-class frigates, but it’s hard to discern from the silhouette, experts said.
But the fact they are Russian ships is not in doubt. In addition to the ship’s radar arrays and hulls, which are dissimilar from U.S. warships, the photo features one more give-away: a large white flag with a blue ‘X’ at the ships’ sterns.
Polmar, who authored “The Naval Institute Guide to the Soviet Navy,” recognized the blue ‘X’-mark: “The X is the Cross of St. Andrew’s, which is a Russian Navy symbol,” Polmar said. (An anchored U.S. warship, by contrast, flies the American flag on its stern.)
Based on this specific group of these ship types, one naval expert concluded that this was most likely a photo of the Black Sea Fleet.
I’ll bet Ol’ Pooty shed some tears when he got word of this! I am also sad…no, livid…that there are people who continue to be suckered into believing that the Demo☭rat Party, with TOTUS at the head, actually care. They can’t bring themselves to accept the fact that there are two ships in our Fleet named after Presidents they can’t stand.
Which is but one more reason we must vote the SCOAMF and his Demo☭rat henchmen OUT on November 6.
