See also Matt's post below with comments from some moral retards, and yes I think I might turn this into a video tonight.
Sitting as I do in the Dennis Miller chair of the blogosphere, it is my lot to provide the wicked beatdowns of those who transgress the bounds of decency. Sadly this keeps me quite busy, but I do enjoy the work. I'll admit it. There are plenty of folks doing nice reasoned analysis and thoughtful commentary and while I do that as well I have to admit I really like ripping somebody a new one. So let's have at.
Sniveling pseudo-socialite A. Whitney Brown, who was quite unfunny on SNL for a brief time, has seen fit to grace us with his thoughts on the "moral retards" who make up our military. You see in the nasally echo chamber that sits atop his pencil neck all this clown hears is the moral superiority he and his friends have assumed for themselves. They are the educated artistes and intellectuals who will prononounce on right and wrong safely insulated from the life and death actions required to vouchsafe that very freedom.
First watch this simpering swine disgrace himself and insult all who have served. (transcript at Kos)
OK now stop cursing at the screen and take a deep breath while I knee him in the yarbles, if he had any yarbles. This was his closing since I bet you shut his ass off before you got there.
You know you can adopt a kid for 15 dollars a month in Brazil or somewhere and you get pictures of them living their miserable lives. But I have paid hundreds of dollars in taxes over my lifetime, hundreds of dollars, and I don’t have so much as a single picture of an Iraqi child that I paid to have killed. It would be nice to just have something, you know, to remember them by.... a picture, a lock of hair, perhaps a necklace of ears...
So yes, I resent my support for the killing of Iraqis for which I get not even a memento or trophy. But do I still support the individual men and women who have given so much to serve their country?
No. I think they’re a bunch of idiots. I also think they’re morally retarded. Because they sign a contract that says they will kill whoever you tell me to kill. And that is morally retarded.
Friends, the most important moral decision a man makes in the course of a day is "Who am I going to kill today?"
That’s a decision you should agonize over, dream about, rehearse in your mind for hours, not just leave up to some hare-brained President you didn’t even vote for.
A man’s killing list is a very personal matter. It should be between him and those persistent voices in his head.
So to sum up, I don’t like our troops, I don’t like what they’re doing, I don’t like their fat, whining families, and yet, I support them. Thank God I live in a free country. Thank You.
You know if I had a killing list I think you might make the cut Whit, but you better thank whatever evil you worship that I am now a pacifist. The irony of this moral relativist judging those who have made a sacrifice he is unable to fathom, and then belittling them using the very freedom that sacrifice bought him is stunning. He slurs us oblivious to the fact that his ability to do so required the selfless actions of those he tries to place himself above. You know maybe I was wrong, maybe you are just being funny, well in your own special not f***ing funny way. Here is his statement apologizing.
I sincerely apologize for any offense you might have taken. It was not my intent to defame or offend anyone who might sign a piece of paper saying they are available to kill whoever their marginally superior officer tells them to, wherever they are sent, for 1200 dollars a month. Such people are not responsible for the people they kill, or the people that are killed by those they feed, support, or maintain.
On the contrary, they are in fact, larger than life, and immune to criticism, reproach, or correction. In short, they are all heroes. Why? Because they are, that's why. I'm sorry you took any other message from it.
Then again, maybe not. Well you have chosen th s**t in your bed and lie in it. So be it.
F**k you very much from all of us who have served, our families, our friends, our neightbors, and all decent Americans. You and your collection of self-annointed moral superiors can kiss our collective ass. You have earned no such position, you have made no sacrifices for the good of all, you have done nothing but wallow in the riches others have created. Your sorry attempts at comedy with your affected accent, spineless demeanor and absolute lack of any humor may get you chortles from Chad and Buffy. But entertaining the crowd you hang with takes little more than a Bush is a chimp reference before all of you collapse in hilarity.
You are such a classic, bitchy, little sissy that I think you would still get your lunch money stolen on a grade school playground. I giggle at the thought of Whit and his crowd of my betters attempting to lecture neer do wells absent the protection we Neanderthals provide.
"I say my good man, you simply must stop tha...Oh my God, you've cut Buffy's head clean off. Hey now this will not do, stop that, let me go......gurgle, gurgle, gurgle.
Sorry Whit the moral high ground you feel you occupy is simply a mound of your own shite. You can sit there and fling poo, and I will stand on this side of the glass with the folks who understand that civilized means taking the necessary actions to create civil society. That means killing bad guys Whit. I know that makes you curl your nose, like when the cream for your tea is a bit off, but just because you are too weak emotionally or physically to deal with it doesn't change things. The cultured world you infest is only possible because your true moral superiors have several things you are lacking, a spine and balls come to mind. So you can remain to remind us that no good deed goes unpunished and that our service enables punks like you to p*** on my head and try to tell me it's raining.
I will always be available to remind you and the other superior beings that you exist at our pleasure, we are just a lot more tolerant of ignorant haters than you are.
