I am used to hearing this type of banter from the left. So many leftists will come right out and say it these days. They look at members of the United States Military as individuals with lower intelligence than them. They see us as citizens who could not find success in other ways, and settled on the military as a fall-back option. Here is just a small example of the statists view that we, the military members, do not offer an educated opinion on conflict and do not have enough intelligence to know the wise things they do.
How pompous can you be? That's just one extreme example, right? They don't really feel that way. Here's another...
If you listen to them on a good day, they'll even reveal that they think we are terrorists...
Sadly, this is nothing surprising or new. Anyone who pays attention knows that the liberals possess a certain disdain for the military and their mission in our Republic. What is becoming a growing concern is the new fringe element which attempts to cozy themselves up with the conservatives, and espouses the same lack of respect for the military and their valiant sacrifices.
This new element is none other than the 9/11 "Truthers" led by supreme nutjob Alex Jones. All of these certified tin foil hat wearing conspiracy theory schizo's believe that all of the conflicts our nation has been involved in are created by some mysterious wealthy bourgeousie who benefit financially from it. They go a step further than merely calling the military uneducated. They call us naive and belittle every brave conflict we have undertaken as a manufactured war by the wealthy upper class of both parties.
How does anyone actually listen to this guy? He is merely making money out of scaring the entire population with self-created fairy tales, and the military is stupid?? The loonies that believe this fat lazy bum who does this because he can't handle a real job should really ask their doctor about mental illness meds.
This is like listening to "Coast To Coast" radio. We used to have nuts like this approach our gate from time to time in Twentynine Palms, CA when I was stationed there. They would claim we were hiding aliens in one of our hangars or something similar. They were hilarious!! Now, thanks to this moron they're mainstream.
We're approaching another Memorial Day weekend and fewer people will honor what our military does thanks to the idiots shown above. It saddens me that the bravest and the smartest that I have met over my last 16 years in the military are making the ultimate sacrifice every day so that these "wastes of oxygen" can daily express such stupidity. Alex Jones would never say what he said in the video to a Marine's face...trust me!
