How do they show their love and respect for our men and women in uniform? By calling them Nazis, of course! According to David Neiwert at Crooks and Liars, Nazis have "infiltrated" our military. Of course, the story he's referring to is a few years old, and both the Pentagon and the FBI disagree, but who cares? David Neiwert has teh investimagation skillz! He knows its true, because some soldiers write dumb stuff like this on teh internets!
Earlier this year, the founder of White Military Men identified himself in his New Saxon account as "Lance Corporal Burton" of the 2nd Battalion Fox Company Pit 2097, from Florida, according to a master's thesis by graduate student Matthew Kennard. Under his "About Me" section, Burton writes: "Love to shoot my M16A2 service rifle effectively at the Hachies (Iraqis)," and, "Love to watch things blow up (Hachies House)."
If its on teh internets, it MUST be true! And if one soldier likes this kind of stuff, well then clearly it will infect the military so that they all do! We must commence with the pansy liberal hand-wringing, ASAP!!!
What's the most disturbing about this post is how Neiwert so casually smears our troops, calling the military -- I'm not kidding here -- a Timothy McVeigh finishing school. Check it out (emphasis mine):
This problem doesn't involve only the Nazis, gang-bangers, and other violent personalities worming their way into the military. It also affects the many more formerly normal, non-racist recruits who have been dragged into multiple tours of duty in Iraq, regardless of the psychological dangers of such treatment. This includes many people whose evaluations have recommended they not be returned for duty but have been sent back regardless. Thus the Timothy McVeigh Finishing School continues to operate.
This has the deadly potential to become a significant component of the predictable surge in far-right activity likely to manifest itself in the United States in the coming months and years, especially as Democrats and liberals expand their hold on power. We run the risk of re-creating the conditions that arose in Germany and Italy after World War I: the presence of scores of angry, disaffected, and psychologically damaged war veterans, fed a steady diet of "Dolchstosslegende," poised to organize into a political force aimed at "rebirthing" the nation and its heritage.
In our current situation, these veterans not only will have served with neo-Nazis amid their ranks, they will likely be faced with unemployment and a wrecked economy, eager for someone to blame and fully trained and capable of violent action.
How despicable is that? The FBI acknowledged that there are maybe around 200 neo-Nazis currently serving in the military, out of the almost 3 million currently serving. And then he throws gang-bangers, "violent personalities", and people who were OK until they served, and then they just went crazy. So basically, our entire military is rotten.
You know, when people see Matt in public and shake his hand or say thank you, it comes often from retired vets. Usually, they mention how lucky he has it now, because when they came home from war in Vietnam, they were spit on. And they're right -- we've come such a long way from those days and the abhorrent treatment of our troops in Vietnam. But things are getting worse and worse. And I have to wonder, if liberals continue to climb in power, will we see a drastic return to that kind of behavior? I don't think it's a stretch to say that in the least. The left likes to give lip service to the military, but only to cover up their raw, seething hatred. Now that they're in power, why should they continue to do so?
