I'm joining my other bloggers in trying to keep this from being hidden as well. This guys rant appeared on Daily Kos as well and i'm sure it will be deleted from there before long as well. I have screen caps but i'll have to post them up later. I'll have the transcript of the video posted below the "Read More" section.
Do please contact A.Whitney Brown and tell him how much of a douche-bag he is. This type of liberal moonbat hatred for the Military makes me sick and after I get the screen caps up you'll get to see the ridiculous comments made by the "Oh-so-compassionate" lefties.
Hello, I’m A. Whitney Brown, and I support our brave troops overseas.
We all do and we all should. But what about those troops who are not so
brave? Perhaps they just signed up hoping for some extra money for
college, for the medical insurance, or even some hot gay military sex.
Suddenly they find themselves in Iraq for the fourth or fifth time and
they’re not so brave. In fact they're crapping in their pants.
Shouldn’t we support them just as much? I think we should. In fact we
should support them more, because a brave man does but once, whereas a
coward dies a thousand deaths.
And we should say we support them, because, frankly, it just doesn’t get said often enough.
Imagine, for example, if anytime any politician mentions any aspect of
the war they prefaced their statement by saying ‘I support our troops’,
or ‘I support our brave troops’ or even ‘I support our brave troops,
even though some of them are gay or scared shitless’.
And not just politicians, but religious leaders, news people,
commercial businesses, beverage makers, car companies, defense
lobbyists - they should all say they support our troops whenever
they’re trying to sell their products or pimp their talking points.
Because it’s the right thing to say.
Now, I can’t make people say they support our troops. But if I’m the
only one who’s willing to stand up and say ‘I support our troops’, then
I’ll say it; I support our troops - cowards, queers, and all.
Now I know there are some cynics out there thinking, sure you say you
support our troops but what do you actually mean by ‘support’? That’s a
fair question and all I can say in response is that any one asking that
question is a traitorous bastard and probably should be hung for
But to answer the question, what I mean when I say I support our troops
is that I actually pay for their food, their ammo, their upkeep,
transport, everything. I pay for all of it.
And I do that not only because I’m a patriotic American, although I am,
but also because they take 35% out of my check every week and if I
don’t pay it I will end up in jail.
That is what I mean by ‘I support our troops’. I mean I am
involuntarily, under threat of prison, forced to pay for their support.
Now do I resent that?
You’re damn right I do. Because it is stupid as hell. Other countries
pay taxes, but they get something for it, like health care. What do I
get? I get to kill a bunch of Iraqis. Whoopdeedoo.
What am I going to do with a bunch of dead Iraqis? Plus I don’t even
get to keep them. I mean, I might like to have a skull or something to
use as a paperweight, on my desk. I’m not saying I would, but it might
be a nice gesture to send out a few skulls out to those of us who are
paying the cost.
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.
