Progressive twit shows amazing combination of condescension, intolerance, ignorance and all around ass-hattery.
On her MSNBC show today, Melissa Harris-Perry stated that the U.S. military is "despised as an engine of war by many progressives."
Woah, good thing I was sitting down when I read that shocker. I might have passed out and hit my head. The most awesome thing about our moral superiors on the left is just how biased, and prejudiced and venomously hateful they are. It is a simple matter of projection. They assume all those who don't share their views are as angry and closed-minded as they are.
It is a sad truth about her and her fellow forward thinkers not-really-veiled disgust for the military. But she compounds the sad truth of that honest admission with the full and even sorrier statement "It is a surprising historical truth that the US military, despised as an engine of war by many progressives, has been a leading institution in America's fight for racial equality"
She was speaking about the military being a leader (as usual) in righting wrongs. The pathetic thing is that she assumes this is an anomaly. Obviously the "education" she got focused more on PC BS and less on the fact that the US military has been the greatest force for freedom and liberty in the history of this planet. Hundreds of millions of people live better lives due to the completely, unsurprising historical truth that the US military has fought and defeated tyranny and totalitarianism all around the world.
You are welcome sweetheart, now go read a real book.
