Stop worshiping men in uniform: "It's been 70 years since we fought a war about freedom." http://t.co/JDA9DcjLp2

Salon manages to offend not only the military, purposely so on the eve of Veterans Day, but also manages to insult all Americans and the United States, by the end of the first sentence. But it shows the unvarnished progressive view of the military, what they really think.
Put a man in uniform, preferably a white man, give him a gun, and Americans will worship him. It is a particularly childish trait, of a childlike culture, that insists on anointing all active military members and police officers as “heroes.” The rhetorical sloppiness and intellectual shallowness of affixing such a reverent label to everyone in the military or law enforcement betrays a frightening cultural streak of nationalism, chauvinism, authoritarianism and totalitarianism, but it also makes honest and serious conversations necessary for the maintenance and enhancement of a fragile democracy nearly impossible.
I’m not going to put in the keep reading link, if you want to go there, there’s more and the link is in the tweet. But the first paragraph is sufficient to get the flavor, and I don’t want to afford them click bait.
No to ‘Old Reliables”, but yes to Ol Dirty Bastard:
