Is there anything more ridiculous than a chickenhawk getting all weepy-eyed about the troops? It’s made all the more ridiculous when it’s Ted Nugent delivering his usual hyperbolic bullshit, which he does in his latest Worldnetdaily column about Veterans Day.
I am an adequately emotional guy. I’ve said goodbye to my mom and dad, grandparents, aunts and uncles and my share of people I love and respect. But after a few weeks of hanging out with the troops and absorbing that something special, their dedication and willingness to sacrifice for us all, I felt a more powerful connection and appreciation for who they are, what they do and how we got here than I ever had before.
My dad, Warren Henry Nugent, served heroically in the U.S. Army in World War II and Korea. My brother Jeff served in the U.S. Army as well. I’ve shared way too many campfires to count with the men and women of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corp, National Guard and Coast Guard. I know that freedom is not free, and there is no greater sacrifice than for a man to be willing to lay down his life for his fellow man.
Sure there is, Ted. The sacrifice of a guy who shit his pants for a month to avoid doing all those heroic things you’re hypocritically talking about now. Typical chickenhawk, full of lavish praise for those who fight in wars that they refuse to fight in even though they support them.
