Out of the mouths of Leftards.
Chris Hayes, host of UP on MSNBC, held a Saturday panel discussion to “discuss the significance of Memorial Day, its history, and how we grieve for dead soldiers and people in other countries”.
CHRIS HAYES: “Thinking today and observing Memorial Day, that’ll be happening tomorrow. Just talked with Lt. Col. Steve Burke [sic, actually Beck], who was a casualty officer with the Marines and had to tell people [inaudible]. Um, I, I, ah, back sorry, um, I think it’s interesting because I think it is very difficult to talk about the war dead and the fallen without invoking valor, without invoking the words “heroes.” Um, and, ah, ah, why do I feel so comfortable [sic] about the word “hero”? I feel comfortable, ah, uncomfortable, about the word because it seems to me that it is so rhetorically proximate to justifications for more war. Um, and, I don’t want to obviously desecrate or disrespect memory of anyone that’s fallen, and obviously there are individual circumstances in which there is genuine, tremendous heroism: hail of gunfire, rescuing fellow soldiers and things like that. But it seems to me that we marshal this word in a way that is problematic. But maybe I’m wrong about that.”
Maybe you’re wrong?
Just in time for Memorial Day, we get to hear an MSNBC assclown say how “uncomfortable” he is describing fallen troops as “heroes” because you think it makes it “rhetorically proximate to justifications for more war”. Last I checked, the current war was started by rabid muzzie zealots who took almost 3000 lives on this soil and have taken thousands more world wide, in the name of “Islam”. Former Soldiers and war veterans such as myself, and those still serving, know the job is dangerous when we enlist. We don’t think of ourselves as special but it takes someone of that caliper to readily go into harms way on behalf of this country. We don’t think of ourselves as “heroes”, but there are many troops, fallen and still living, who certainly deserve that honor.
Hayes is part and parcel of a contemptible leftwing fringe that has a fundamental disconnect when you try to explain patriotism, service, and love of country. They just don’t get it, because they project their own motivations onto those who serve in the military. They can’t fathom concepts like Duty, Honor, Country, not to mention the idea of giving something back to the nation that’s given so much to every one of us. While most of America takes a pass, only a few raise the right hand.
People far better than Hayes have gone to the enemy’s turf to fight brutal scumbags who would love to make him a eunuch for a new Caliphate. He’s an incredibly stupid, inarticulate stutterfuck with no clue.
His head is anatomically proximate to his ass.
UPDATE: Hayes got torn a new asshole across the blogosphere.
