The White Feather of Cowardice – Presented to the Democratic Congressional Leadership

I’d like to present the White Feather of Cowardice to the Democratic Congressional Leadership.

White Feather of Cowardice

See Michelle Malkin’s post Send ’em a white feather.

Reader and Vietnam Vet Jack Haley e-mails:

The White Feather has been a symbol for cowardice. I suggest that white feathers be sent to the leaders of the Senate and House for the cowardly vote that abandons our soldiers around the world.

I was in Vietnam the day that the 101st took “Hamburger Hill” — the headline in the Stars and Stripes was Teddy Kennedy’s statement to the effect that it was all such a waste. I am sure it raised the spirits of the folks on top of the hill — I know it gave my morale a boost. Surely these leaders of our country will head out on a USO tour to encourage the troops further.

As far as I am concerned this is a Congress of Quislings.

You can buy ’em online here individually or in bulk.

Laura Lee Donoho was on the same wavelength in January:

I think in addition to the pledge, we need to start a white feather campaign because it’s becoming quite apparent that we have a multitude of Cut and Runners in our Congress. The book and movie, The Four Feathers tells a story of cowardice and redemption. I see nothing but cowardice so far in many Democrats and Republicans in the Senate and House but for the sake of our troops and our country I’m hoping that at least some Republicans redeem themselves.

I’m not holding my breath.

  1. I just added a signature to my mail thinking I was smart and use the story of the White Feather.

  2. Do you know the significance behind the white feather? It is symbolic of the torture a man has had to go through for another man to remain safe at home. The feather is not a badge of cowardice, it is a significant symbolic bond of the power of the connection between men. “I will endure, so you do not have to”. Using a symbol from God like that, counter to the loving manner for which it was bestowed up on us, its truly sinful.

    Women gave men white feathers after the war, im not sure why, but documents support that it was to show the cowardice in that man. Point out the cowardice of man, point out the cowardice in your sons, and your brothers, and your fathers. So to for women.

    Treat each other equally, with dignity, respect, and a love that transcends the very thought of death itself, and maybe we will be ready to wear the feathered badge of our fallen angels.
