“War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.” – John Stuart Mill
Okay – so it started with a report from NBC : HERE AT YOU TUBE
Then some liberal cultural elite guy over at the Washington Post, William M. Arkin, wrote a cheerful little piece that I am sure will warm all your hearts. Read the article here: ARKINâ€™S A PINHEAD
And then if you read on further through the article you get to reader comments. And, man, oh man â€“ do the folks let the A-hole have it. Most of it made me smile, I must admit. There are several other blogs that address the article: BlackFive and Fuzzilicious to name a few. So I wonâ€™t get into the thick mud of it all. Suffice it to say that there is a number of cultural elitists who believe that they are better educated, higher paid, and better-rounded than the rest of us and that their opinions count and ours do not.
How sad, our country and our newspapers feel fit to castigate our brave military. We were once a proud America, when everyone stood for our National Anthem with their hands on their hearts. Those days are gone. Now, we are clogged with traitors and seditionists like Hanoi Jane, the Media and the Hollywood establishment. What is so confusing is, if the terrorists had their way, Hollywood would be burned to the ground and everyone in it because they are looked upon as evil and disgusting and breaking the laws of Islam.
Too bad our military must defend them along with the Americans who love and respect them.
I would love to see the cultural elite substantiate their remarks pertaining to service members expressing “intolerance and anti-democratic views” and using their “position to try and bully others into submission”. I dare say, to a man (and woman), they have done more to promote representative democracy in the world than any cultural elitist ever will. Perhaps if they were to stand between suicide bombers and a voting line, they would truly know what ‘anti-democratic’ really means.
And then Mr. Arkin writes a rebuttal to all the hate mail he got: HERE. I mean, this guy just won’t fucking stop.
It is just another example of the liberal biased media having the nerve to criticize our troops and leaders who have kept this nation safe from terrorism since 9/11. Meanwhile the left leaning media’s contribution to post 9/11 is to lend credibility to the terrorists and those who support them while condemning those who are protecting their ability to write their articles any way that they wish, as idiotic as they are. Don’t even get me started on the typical “giving the finger” attitude of those in the media/entertainment field such as the morons from Turner who caused the city of Boston to be shut down due to a marketing gimmick.
And they criticize the intelligence of Bush?
Typical liberals, typical Cultural Elite Main Stream Media.
I hate those bastards.
