Chris Hayes Apologizes to Soldiers
Yeah, sorry about the coarse language but look at that mouth farter. That's a fag. Irrespective of his sexual orientation. I'm not calling this pole smoker gay. I'm saying he's a fag. Why? Because this is the tool that claimed he was 'uncomfortable' calling fallen soldiers heroes. On Memorial day. Fag.
So anyway, he could have handled all this by apologizing and/or enlisting. Why not? With DADT gone the kid looks like a shoe in for the chief of staff gig. But he didn't do either. See, he says he's apologizing and that's all you need to know that what's coming out of his mouth...besides farts...is going to be a justification for what he said and not an apology at all.
Doubt me? Read on.
On Sunday, in discussing the uses of the word "hero" to describe those members of the armed forces who have given their lives, I don't think I lived up to the standards of rigor, respect and empathy for those affected by the issues we discuss that I've set for myself. I am deeply sorry for that.
He's sorry he let himself down. I.E. 'These people caught on to the fact of my egregious faggotry, I better do something.'
As many have rightly pointed out, it's very easy for me, a TV host, to opine about the people who fight our wars, having never dodged a bullet or guarded a post or walked a mile in their boots. Of course, that is true of the overwhelming majority of our nation's citizens as a whole.
He's saying most people are fags too, so what's the big deal?
...how easy it becomes to never read the names of those who are wounded and fight and die, to not ask questions about the direction of our strategy in Afghanistan, and to assuage our own collective guilt about this disconnect with a pro-forma ritual that we observe briefly before returning to our barbecues.
He's thinking, "I bet all those red neck fags with family serving overseas smoke as much pole as I do, because this IS ALL BUSHES FAULT!!!!!"
But in seeking to discuss the civilian-military divide and the social distance between those who fight and those who don't, I ended up reinforcing it, conforming to a stereotype of a removed pundit whose views are not anchored in the very real and very wrenching experience of this long decade of war. And for that I am truly sorry.
In other words, "Next time I'll wipe the spooge off my chin before showing up on TV."
At least that's how I interpret it, go read about this fag for yourselves.
Faggy fag fag faggy fags.
