1) In Vietnam, our soldiers came back and they were reviled as baby killers, in shame and humiliation. It isnt happening now, but I will tell you, there has never been an [American] army as violent and murderous as our army has been in Iraq. —Seymour Hersh
2) I haven't seen American Sniper, but correct me if I'm wrong: An occupier mows down faceless Iraqis but the real victim is his anguished soul. Max Blumenthal
3) Put a man in uniform, preferably a white man, give him a gun, and Americans will worship him. It is a particularly childish trait, of a childlike culture, that insists on anointing all active military members and police officers as heroes. The rhetorical sloppiness and intellectual shallowness of affixing such a reverent label to everyone in the military or law enforcement betrays a frightening cultural streak of nationalism, chauvinism, authoritarianism and totalitarianism, but it also makes honest and serious conversations necessary for the maintenance and enhancement of a fragile democracy nearly impossible…. -- David Masciotra at Salon
4) American fighters of the Pacific War were not heroes. The desperation of island combat included exchanged barbarities of which no one would willingly speak for a generation. On the American side, there were foul racism, vengeful refusals to take prisoners, a generalized brutality that extended to a savage air war. —James Carrollin the Boston Globe
5) …(P)erhaps some readers will understand why my friends and I rip yellow ribbon support the troops magnets off of cars or wherever people have affixed them. By ripping off these ribbons, we find a way to deal with our guilt, as though with each ribbon swiped we take back a life that was taken by this senseless war started by our senseless president and those who support him.
I will never say, support the troops. I dont believe in the validity of that statement. People say, I dont support the war, I support the troops as though you can actually separate the two. You cannot; the troops are a part of the war, they have become the war and there is no valid dissection of the two. Other people shout with glaring eyes that we should give up our politics, give up our political affiliations in favor of just supporting the troops. I wish everything were that easy. —Thomas Naughton at the Daily Collegian
6) "Forget bringing the troops home from Iraq. We need to get the troops home from World War II. Can anybody tell me why, in 2009, we still have more than sixty thousand troops in Germany and thirty thousand in Japan? At some point, these people are going to have to learn to rape themselves." Bill Maher
7) My uncle killed by sniper in WW2. We were taught snipers were cowards. Will shoot u in the back. Snipers arent heroes. And invaders r worse.— Michael Moore
8) What outrages me as a representative of journalists is that theres not more outrage about the number, and the brutality, and the cavalier nature of the U.S. military toward the killing of journalists in Iraq….They target and kill journalists … uh, from other countries, particularly Arab countries like Al -, like Arab news services like Al-Jazeera, for example. They actually target them and blow up their studios with impunity…. — Newspaper Guild President Linda Foley
9) Democrat flaks jump on this like ducks on a June-bug, and in the process themselves reproduce the sick militarism of this culture that automatically valorizes anyone who wears a uniform. How dare you insult a soldier! Like its some sacred calling instead of an imperial employment program steeped in the culture of machismo and misogyny.(And you can gasp as theatrically as you want… I spent more than two decades wearing a uniform… that is exactly what it is.) —Stan Goff at the Huffington Post
10) Is your enemy the state?
Befriend a recruiter and keep your friends close and your enemies closer!…
This campaign is not about (badgering?) recruiters. It is solely about making friends and finding out more about the military that you dont trust…
Actions to take:…
Prank-call a recruiter to schedule appointments on the other side of town.
Ask a recruiter to pick you up and then tell them youre hungry.
Ask a recruiter to take you out to eat. — A flier from Iraq Vets Against the War
11) THE United States now has a mercenary army. To be sure, our soldiers are hired from within the citizenry, unlike the hated Hessians whom George III recruited to fight against the American Revolutionaries. But like those Hessians, todays volunteers sign up for some mighty dangerous work largely for wages and benefits…. —David M. Kennedy in the New York Times
12) You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, uh, you, you can do well. If you dont, you get stuck in Iraq. —John Kerry
13) If a young fella has an option of having a decent career or joining the army to fight in Iraq, you can bet your life that he would not be in Iraq. —Charles Rangel
14) For someone who was responsible for, again, nobody knows, but a certain amount of death of innocent people as John McCain was, the time spent in a North Vietnamese prison where he claims to have been tortured was probably time spent that a Catholic priest, for example, would find completely understandable. Its called doing penance, John. You dont bomb and kill people for no reason, even when corporate America or your daddy, who was the supreme commander of Southeast Asian forces, South Pacific forces, orders you to do it. You cant just take orders, we decided that at Nuremberg. So, if you suffered, I am sorry for your suffering, I truly am, in and of itself, but John-John-John, did you think about the suffering of the people you bombed and strafed? They were civilians, you know. —Mike Malloy
15) Im putting my life at risk, literally! And if I slipped… You never know. And I think about it. I think about my family and Im like, wow, this is like being a police officer or something, in war or something. —Kanye West
16) (Its) very difficult to talk about the war dead and the fallen without invoking valor, without invoking the words heroes. I feel … uncomfortable about the word hero because it seems to me that it is so rhetorically proximate to justifications for more war. —Chris Hayes
17) Our troops overreacted because of the pressure on them, and they killed innocent civilians in cold blood. —John Murtha smears the troops on Haditha
18) The recent shootings at Ft. Hood and the resignation of top Foreign Service officer Matthew Hoh demonstrate how even our military officers are opposed to US strategy in Afghanistan. —Code Pink
19) "A lot of (Kyle's) stories when he was back home in Texas, a lot of his own personal opinions about what he was doing in Iraq, how he viewed Iraqis. Some of what people have described as his racist tendencies towards Iraqis and Muslims when he was going on some of these, you know, killing sprees in Iraq on assignment. So I think there are issues... When he was involved in his -- on assignments in terms of what he was doing. A lot of the description that has come out from his book and some of the terminology that he has used, people have described as racist." -- MSNBC's Ayman Mohyeldin
20) Real freedom will come when [U.S.] soldiers in Iraq turn their guns on their superiors. — Warren County Community College adjunct English professor, John Daly
21) I dont want to sound like an ad, a public service ad on TV, but the fact is if you can read, you can walk into a job later on. If you dont, then youve got, the Army, Iraq, I dont know, something like that. Its, its not as bright. So, thats my little commercial for that. —Stephen King
22) Through every Abu aib and Haditha, through every rape and murder, the American public has indulged those in uniform….We pay the soldiers a decent wage, take care of their families, provide them with housing and medical care and vast social support systems and ship obscene amenities into the war zone for them, we support them in every possible way, and their attitude is that we should in addition roll over and play dead, defer to the military and the generals and let them fight their war, and give up our rights and responsibilities to speak up because they are above society?…[T]he recent NBC report is just an ugly reminder of the price we pay for a mercenary — oops sorry, volunteer — force that thinks it is doing the dirty work. —Washington Post blogger, William Arkin
23) I think Bowe Bergdahl, if he deserted, is a hero I think throughout history we should build monuments to the unknown deserters. Bill Ayers
24) Do our governments poorly paid contract killers deserve our support for blindly following orders? —Ted Rall
25) For those of you who do, as a matter of principle, oppose war in any form, the idea of supporting a conscientious objector whos already been inducted [and] in his combat service in Iraq might have a certain appeal. But let me ask you this: Would you render the same support to someone who hadnt conscientiously objected, but rather instead rolled a grenade under their line officer in order to neutralize the combat capacity of their unit?
Later, in a question-and-answer period, Churchill was asked whether the trauma fragging inflicts on that officers family back home should be considered, he responded: How do you feel about Adolf Eichmanns family? — From Ward Churchill via WorldNetDaily
...and when the radical islamists target their dinner parties, cocktail hours or chic vacation spots, these will be the first to say “the government must do something”.
This is the mental disease called liberalism on display.
Is it proper to apply the REMF title to these cockroaches?
I went into a public-’ouse to get a pint o’ beer,
The publican ‘e up an’ sez, “We serve no red-coats here.”
The girls be’ind the bar they laughed an’ giggled fit to die,
I outs into the street again an’ to myself sez I:
O it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, go away”;
But it’s “Thank you, Mister Atkins”, when the band begins to play,
The band begins to play, my boys, the band begins to play,
O it’s “Thank you, Mister Atkins”, when the band begins to play.
I went into a theatre as sober as could be,
They gave a drunk civilian room, but ‘adn’t none for me;
They sent me to the gallery or round the music-’alls,
But when it comes to fightin’, Lord! they’ll shove me in the stalls!
For it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, wait outside”;
But it’s “Special train for Atkins” when the trooper’s on the tide,
The troopship’s on the tide, my boys, the troopship’s on the tide,
O it’s “Special train for Atkins” when the trooper’s on the tide.
Yes, makin’ mock o’ uniforms that guard you while you sleep
Is cheaper than them uniforms, an’ they’re starvation cheap;
An’ hustlin’ drunken soldiers when they’re goin’ large a bit
Is five times better business than paradin’ in full kit.
Then it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, ‘ow’s yer soul?”
But it’s “Thin red line of ‘eroes” when the drums begin to roll,
The drums begin to roll, my boys, the drums begin to roll,
O it’s “Thin red line of ‘eroes” when the drums begin to roll.
We aren’t no thin red ‘eroes, nor we aren’t no blackguards too,
But single men in barricks, most remarkable like you;
An’ if sometimes our conduck isn’t all your fancy paints,
Why, single men in barricks don’t grow into plaster saints;
While it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, fall be’ind”,
But it’s “Please to walk in front, sir”, when there’s trouble in the wind,
There’s trouble in the wind, my boys, there’s trouble in the wind,
O it’s “Please to walk in front, sir”, when there’s trouble in the wind.
You talk o’ better food for us, an’ schools, an’ fires, an’ all:
We’ll wait for extry rations if you treat us rational.
Don’t mess about the cook-room slops, but prove it to our face
The Widow’s Uniform is not the soldier-man’s disgrace.
For it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Chuck him out, the brute!”
But it’s “Saviour of ‘is country” when the guns begin to shoot;
An’ it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ anything you please;
An’ Tommy ain’t a bloomin’ fool — you bet that Tommy sees!
Let the Liberal critics moan, but if they’re ever directly threatened by foreign attack they’ll be singing the troopers’ praises while cringing and hiding in their deepest hidey-holes.
This article was not a good read for someone who takes pills daily for hypertension.
That was a good selection of recent quotes.
I have sent it on to family and friends.
As an aside, the combined domestic and foreign box office of American Sniper now stands at $326,400,239. And last Fri-Sun weekend domestic gross was about $65m, so after this weekend, the movie’s total gross will be 6x its production budget.
If you cant stand behind them there is a place directly in front of them while they do thier job protecting your sorry liberal a## if you have the balls
Make Chris Kyle black and/or homo, and every single one of them says the opposite.
The worst thing that ever happened in this world was to allow people to embrace Liberalism. Liberalism is as offensive as Mohammedism; both are an affront to mankind.
Pope St. Pius X warned us of Liberalism (Modernism, Progressive, even Communism). His encyclical, Lamentabili Sane Exitu (or “A Lamentable Departure Indeed”), issued 3 July 1907, formally condemned 65 modernist or relativist propositions concerning the nature of the Church, revelation, biblical exegesis, the sacraments, and the divinity of Christ. This was followed by the encyclical Pascendi dominici gregis (or “Feeding the Lord’s Flock”), which characterized Liberalism (Modernism, Progressive, even Communism) as the “synthesis of all heresies.”
I wonder how many of those who made the quotes were ACTUALLY in the military themselves, if ever. Sounds more like those who made such statements are products of liberal professors and places of “higher learning”. (Simply stated, dumb asses)
If only our military could fight a war without savage violence we could reach the nirvana of which these morally superior intellectual giants fantasize.
At LEAST REMF put on a uniform and serve!
These MFs are traitors and should be called TMFs.
I’m not in favor of the government arresting them, free speech and all, but they all deserve a vigorous beat-down by patriotic citizens.
And does anyone else think that Stephen King sounds like a moron in his quote? Inarticulate for such a so-called “great” author.
Sometimes I wish we had a PRESS GANG policy in which we could grab these fools and stick them in the front lines, point to the Enemy and say, “Go Get Them!”
Couldn’t read them all. If I did, it would make me want to listen to rap music at full volume.
I grew up when the draft ensured military service was a rite of passage for most young men. Consequently we knew what soldiers went through and the sacrifices they made so others might enjoy freedom and the pursuit of their dreams. We knew that they earned and deserved respect. Today’s youth are lacking that respect and often view soldiers as lower class rather than patriots. In my opinion, and especially with our declining numbers of soldiers, the draft should be reinstated, even if it just required reserve service.
And go look at the political section of Stephen King’s wikipedia article and you’ll see just how much of retard he is.
No. REMF 's are on your side.
