Then again, it’s not like Hayes’ comments are a minority opinion on the left.
Via Weekly Standard:
Over the weekend, MSNBC host Chris Hayes told his viewers that he’s “uncomfortable” with calling “war dead and the fallen . . . ‘heroes.'” Now, the Veterans of Foreign Wars group have responded by saying that Hayes’s comments “are reprehensible and disgusting” and are asking for the MSNBC host to apologize.
“Chris Hayes’ recent remarks on MSNBC regarding our fallen service members are reprehensible and disgusting,” Richard DeNoyer, a VFW official, told Fox News in a statement. “His words reflect his obvious disregard for the service and sacrifice of the men and women who have paid the ultimate price while defending our nation. His insipid statement is particularly callous because it comes at a time when our entire nation pauses to reflect and honor the memory of our nations’ fallen heroes.”
“It is especially devastating to the many broken-hearted children, spouses and parents, left behind to grieve for a loved one,” DeNoyer also said. “Such an ignorant and uncaring and blatant disregard for people’s deep feelings are indefensible, and that is why the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States demand that Mr. Hayes and MSNBC provides an immediate and unequivocal apology.”
