Memorial Day 2012

28 May 2012 @ 17:52

I was, per usual, planning to write a few inadequate words in honor of our glorious dead who died defending this wonderful country, but, after I saw what Bruce McQuain posted over at The Conservatory, I realized that nothing I wrote could say what needs to be said and show what needs to be shown like his magnificent post. 

So please, do take the time to click here and see and read what he has published.

As for the Left, well…some of it’s apparatchiks have been dumb enough to say what they really think about our honored dead and about America…

-MSNBC’s Chris Hayes said the following yesterday:

I feel… uncomfortable, about the word [calling our fallen military dead ‘heroes’] 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, you know, 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.

I leave commentary to veteran Kurt Schlichter:

So, the real problem for Chris Hayes is that he actually said what he thinks. He thinks our soldiers are suckers and fools at best, brutal sociopaths at worst. At a minimum, he feels that honoring those who died for this country might encourage people to see that actually defending our country is a good thing. He’s not quite ready to make that leap; after all, most progressives are ambivalent about this whole “America” concept, if not actively opposed to it.

So, like so many other useless progressive fops who glide from cocktail party to panel discussion, Chris Hayes continues to push his progressive vision of collectivist serfdom from behind the unbreachable wall of American warriors. He has not stood with them and, in fact, is unworthy of doing so. He is a parasite taking sustenance from the exertions of better men and women.

Damn straight.

Navy Man Smitty takes on Van Jones for his pathetic and, frankly, evil-hearted distortion of what really makes America great.  A highlight:

…This country is about liberty, Jones. And the men and women who’ve fought and died in support of this country and her Constitution don’t need another word of Orwellian crapflooding from you….

The sooner we rid ourselves of these troublesome traitors, the quicker we see that they are banned from all avenues of public life, that they are shunned, the sooner we can start to restore The United States Of America back to what The Founders bequeathed to us.

    “The sooner we rid ourselves of these troublesome traitors, the quicker we see that they are banned from all avenues of public life, that they are shunned, the sooner we can start to restore The United States Of America back to what The Founders bequeathed to us.”

    Amen, brother.

    Thank you for this post, Bob. We are remembering all our Brave War Dead Heros.
    It’s a shame the lefty slimeballs have to try and ruin the solemn day. Oh well, it’s to be expected. Next year, we’ll have a real man and lover of America holding that wreath.
