Right-wing guide to honoring the military

First, ascertain if said person was or is indeed part of the military.

Second, ascertain if said person supports our President’s effort to go after Bin Laden, find weapons of mass destruction, bring democracy to Iraq, at least achieve most of the benchmarks we set in Iraq belittle the benchmarks as not realistic safeguard markets when politicians and generals visit said markets to ensure their safety bring some semblance of safety and normality to some part of Iraq.

Ok now..if our military person agrees with the current mission and doesn’t whine about not having enough protection or equipment to keep him/her safe – YOU CAN HONOR THEM. ABSOLUTELY. SAFE FOR HONORING.

However, if former or current military member questions the effort to go after Bin Laden, find weapons of mass destruction, bring democracy to Iraq, at least achieve most of the benchmarks we set in Iraq belittle the benchmarks as not realistic safeguard markets when politicians and generals visit said markets to ensure their safety bring some semblance of safety and normality to some part of Iraq, you DO NOT, repeat DO NOT have to honor them. In fact, you can call them phonies*.

And now the big bonus, if a war veteran runs for office or holds office and they criticize ANY of the above, they can be vilified, smeared, besmirched and slandered. ABSOLUTELY NO HONOR SHOULD BE GIVEN AT ANY POINT TO THIS TYPE OF PERSON. NONE.

If you have never served at any point in your life in the military and you have ‘achieved’ multiple deferments, you get to make extra rules about who we should and should not honor.

Tomorrows question: How many innocent civilians do Blackwater Security Guards have to kill before THEY lose honor?

*Yeah, I know that Limbaugh is backtracking about some wash-out soldier, but the truth is, and the transcript shows he used the word ‘PHONIES’. Maybe he has a multi-mirrored studio!

  6. Dear Politics & Culture – thanks for reading. Good to know that the Limbaugh syncophants are out there still buying into his personal bilge.

    You guys do cartwheels to defend your man. The true point of my post is about more than Limbaugh. Military vets who run for office who don’t walk the Bush admin ‘line’ and are vilified.
