Twitter brings the best and worst of society to one table.
When wounded Iraq veteran J.R. Salzman spoke up last week with a less-than-friendly message for President Obama, the ugliness of the left showed up.
@jrsalzman you got your arm blown off cause of #BushCheneyLies Iraq not our problem, If you had done your job you would still have your arm

But the hater mikeejoe‘s vile response didn’t go unnoticed. Twitchy noted the user “has a bio claiming he’s a veteran, Hillary 2016 supporter and wants people to ‘get covered’.”
Defending a veteran’s freedom to speak is the very least we can do for them. Thankfully some of the “good guys” on Twitter agreed:
@mikeejoe @jrsalzman how can you call yourself a veteran and say that horseshit to a brother who lost his arm? You are the worst troll.

@jrsalzman @mikeejoe It takes a really shallow a-hole to have that opinion.

@jrsalzman @mikeejoe I can tell you right now he doesn’t represent Texas. Thank you for your service.

@jrsalzman @mikeejoe I’ve seen some very wrong crap in here. This is the first to bring me to report abusive behavior
