Wisconsin Mat Company Gives US Troops the Finger

UPDATE: (Tuesday 1-23-2007) Fox News is reporting this story today.

Polipundit has this outrageous anti-war/anti-military story today:

Lefty Business Insults Troops

This is disgusting & pathetic. This business owner is a disgrace.
{This has been verified as TRUE}

Sgt. Hess, who is from the 1st Cavalry Division stationed in Iraq, emailed a company called discount-mats.com, an online retailer in West Allis, Wisconsin to inquire about ordering some mats but wanted to verify that they would ship to a APO.

Do you ship to APO address? I’m in the 1st Cavalry Division stationed in Iraq and we are trying to order some mats but we are looking for who ships to APO first.

Well, you wouldn’t believe the disgusting reply he received back from the company:

SGT Hess,
We do not ship to APO addresses, and even if we did, we would NEVER ship to Iraq. If you were sensible, you and your troops would pull out of Iraq.

Please read & take action. I am sick and tired of these anti military left wing nuts. Contact DISCOUNT MATS and let them know how wrong they are. Freedom of speech?

And who exactly protects that right?
