ENRAGING anti-vet article provokes backlash: ‘You don’t protect my freedom . . . forced troop worship must stop’

Those ultra-smart libs at Salon.com were probably looking to stir up their ultra-smart readers but ended up raising a hornet’s nest of outrage with a column published Sunday attacking men and women in the U.S. armed forces and police across the country.

With the ludicrous headline of “You don’t protect my freedom: Our childish insistence on calling soldiers heroes deadens real democracy,” the magazine betrayed only its utter ignorance of how the world works – and how real democracy is protected.

A subheadline of the piece says “Forced troop worship and compulsory patriotism must end.” It’s a given that Salon writers (and readers) don’t know much about worshipping anything but progressive liberal heroes like the one in the White House.

But conservatives are giving them a lesson in how the country really feels about the men in uniform, with guns, who protect the democracy we live in – and the freedom of liberal morons to spew their filth.

Check out some of the responses, including a Twitter rant from Montel Williams, here:

If you are offended by really bad words, skip this last tweet, but it probably says exactly what many are thinking:

    Very offensive to those who lost family members in wars in order to keep our freedoms.

    as a retired paratrooper, i can say that some of the policies that have been passed during this so called “war on terror” have nothing to do with protecting the rights of Americans. But those policy desesions are not made by the military or the soldier in particular. the military carries out the decisions made by the politicans and follows their policies. though a flawed system, especially considering the last 2 administrations, it is far better than allowing a military oligarchy or dictatorship to rule our naiton.

    now i do have a question for all those super smart liberals out there, especially the ones from Salon.com;

    just exactly when did the United States of America become a democracy?

    if you don’t know what you are talking about,()which by calling the US a democracy proves you have no clue as to what you are talking about), then A; you lose credibitly (though liberals have none with any person having 2 or more funcitoning brain cells) and B; may i suggest you stfu.

    it is better keep your mouth shut and be thought the fool, then to open it and confirm the fact.

    Back in the day I didn’t really care for Montel Williams but I must say that over the past decade or so he’s done nothing but endear himself to me.
