Default Memorial day douchiness

This guy simply enrages me:

Quote:
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.

He's the model of a modern liberal education. He would do humanity a better service as compost.

i agree with your observation. soldiers don't pick and choose the wars or conflicts they enter into. they go where they are ordered to. so to call men and women who serve and have fallen heroes, makes a war or conflict go on longer? what BS! if he has a problem with a war going on longer, then take it to where it belongs, the President, Congress and the politicians, not our servicemen and women who are simply serving and going where told to.

These people sicken me as well. None of us put on the uniform for praise, in fact many of us put in on expecting scorn but accepting it as a part of our duty to the Nation we were fortunate enough to be born in.

I am no Hero, but anyone who served deserves respect and anyone who made the Ultimate Sacrifice most definitely is a HERO.

Tack

My email to MSNBC:

Re: comments on fallen members of the military on Memorial Day. You sir, are an incredible waste of DNA and oxygen. Since it does not seem to have occurred to you- the US military has never chosen who they fight, where they fight, or when. THAT is decided by the civilian government that is elected by people like you. Which is probably why the military has been in harm's way as much as it has. Your banality and lack of common sense is underwhelming, and is exceeded only by the poor judgement of whoever gave you a job.
