Somebody has zero name recognition and is desperate to stand out in a vast field of lunatics.
Seth Moulton, one of many 2020 Democratic candidates for president, expressed his opposition to the Hyde Amendment during an appearance on CNN.
The Amendment bars using federal funds for abortions except in the extremely rare cases of rape, incest or to save the life of the mother.
Moulton was part of the outrage club that blasted fellow candidate Joe Biden for his initial support of the Hyde Amendment. Biden succumbed to the pressure and eventually flip-flopped – merely one day after affirming his decades-long support.
Putting that aside, Moulton used a questionable analogy when justifying the use of federal funds for abortion.
“I think it’s wrong,” Moulton said Thursday. “It disproportionately attacks women who don’t have the private means to afford an abortion.”
The Democrat was referring specifically to Biden’s pro-choice platform when it comes to abortion and simultaneous support of the Hyde Amendment.
Moulton then went here:
“It’s sort of like saying, you know, I support the troops but don’t want to pay them. That’s the anology here and I think it’s wrong.”

This is coming from a former Marine Corps officer who was awarded the Bronze Star medal for valor while serving in Iraq.
Gropin’ Joe’s Backtrack
Moulton would later praise Biden for his obvious flip-flop on the issue, but still managed to take a shot at the former vice president’s support for the Iraq War.
Bravo to @JoeBiden for doing the right thing and reversing his longstanding support for the Hyde Amendment. It takes courage to admit when you’re wrong, especially when those decisions affect millions of people.
Now do the Iraq War.

Meanwhile, Biden’s senior campaign adviser, Symone Sanders, did her best to minimize the damage.
“He’s authentic. Voters know who Joe Biden is. He is someone that has these deeply personal held beliefs … but he’s also somebody that believes in listening,” she insisted.
Is he authentic now, or was he authentic for the many years prior in which he supported the Hyde Amendment? Which Joe are we getting here?
Moulton’s Extremist Comments
Moulton seems to be doing his best to throw out red meat for the Democrat party’s radical base in an attempt to stand out in the crowded presidential field.
Aside from prattling on that paying our fighting men and women is akin to funding abortion, Moulton has recently claimed Americans are all racist and the country was never that great to begin with.

Wow. And he was in our military??? Wow. I’m surprised he didn’t join ISIS with those comments…I know a whole lotta military guys who would want to have a quiet “word” with him out behind the barracks for what he said.
Do these fools really believe they will get elected with these comments? In order for someone to even stand a chance against Trump…they would need to steal some of Trump’s voters away…and Thank Goodness they are not intelligent enough to realize this…
I hope they all keep talking…
Never hear of this loser. I would NEVER vote for anyone from Massachushits.
the entire group of dems running for president are a bunch of whack jobs – they all seem to have climbed out of the woodwork at the same time – all these wack job Dems seem to have a bit part from a movie – called the shining where each one who appears for this campaign process they all stick their faces through the opening of the broken door. I’m here
A crazy preaching to other crazies in his party. These people are so out of touch with the real world it is pathetic. It must be a qualification to be radical crazy in order to be a candidate for the Dem party. It reminds me of the mayor of New York City and even the people in NYC are unhappy with him.
talking about being racist, then i guess he is racist also…
How can someone look so normal, and be so stupid? I guess it’s all in the brain, or lack thereof.
Absurd is right! It is not worthy of any further comment.
where do they dig up garbage like him
It boggles my mind how many people and especially politicians cannot see the great evil of murdering innocent unborn human beings! They have NO conscience!
All this “comparison” stuff” is just too hilarious! I hope they keep it up! Pretty soon they’ll be comparing Trump voters to “climate change”! Oh wait…….
We used to frag guys like this in Vietnam; big mouths who thought they knew everything and were dangerous to the men below them.
Hell, in Nam people were doing things worthy of a silver star but weren’t awarded anything, and they didn’t think nothing of it, just part of the job. More of the trophy for just participating thing.
Yeah, just because they can claim to be an officer in the military doesn’t mean they were a very good one. I need to see what he got that Bronze Star for. For instance, some female soldier serving in Afghanistan was awarded a Bronze Star for coordinating some sort of major supply issue. Seriously, she ironed out a supply problem, albeit a big one, and got a Bronze Star. Not all of those are awarded because the recipient was doing something heroic.
Marine Corps officer? I bet he was a real friggin’ joy to work for/with. (yep, that’s said with sarcasm)
What else can we expect from these communist-socialist-anti-America-modern day democRATS? He would be a good candidate to send back to Iraq and revoke his citizenship when he gets there. I’m so sick of all these anti-America democRAT nutcases.
This is an outrageous insult to every man and woman who has ever served in the military.
This guy needs to get it together. He will never come close to being a president of anything . Go home where you belong. Just let it go.
