And, of course, you are standing up for the group stirred up by communist agitators. Shouldn't you be posting over at the Daily Worker?
Who are you to tell me where I should post? If Patton had enough decency, he would’ve refused those orders and faced down a court martial. That’s what I would’ve done if I was in that position. Marching on your brothers is wrong at every level.
Every person that joins the military signs a blank check. I really don’t think it’s Communist of me to want the government then to have paid them their bonuses.
