Skip to comments.Boston Globe Slanders Military Again (Surprise!)
Posted on 02/26/2006 2:18:33 PM PST by pabianice
Someone left a Boston Globe at work today and I noticed it in passing the table. There it was. The feature article of Section B: "Unsung Veterans." It is a particularly nasty piece (even for the Marxist Trust Babies at the Globe), briefly profiling four black veterans of the US military.
We learn that the first served in WW II as an Army captain, and allegedly was told by his commanding officer that the colonel was familiar with the needs of blacks because the colonel had raised blacks on his plantation. The second was a Navy machinist's mate who did duty off Korea while being forced to serve coffee and food to white pilots aboard USS Leyte. The third was drafted to serve in Vietnam as an Army sergeant. When Martin Luter King, Jr., was shot, he was allegedly called into his CO's office and warned not to riot with the other black soldiers, then sent to the camp perimeter to take enemy fire. The fourth served in Iraq as an Army sergeant. A school basketball player, she enlisted to serve. However, a combination of tough duty and mistreatment made her fall ill and she was medically retired. She is now home in Boston but because she came back "half dead, the opportunities [for work] are not there." She spends her time fighting the "system."
Not a word about any unsung heros who are white. Not a favorable word about the US military. Just the Globe's uninterrupted stream of hateful Marxist sewage written by people whose closest encounter to the armed forces was watching "The Deer Hunter" on video.
What else can one expect coming from a sideshow or better an offspring dependent of the NYT.
You may be right, but I just can't see anybody at the Globe watching The Deerhunter. At least not all the way through.
Remember the part where the NVA officer makes the US prisioners play Russian roulette and bets on the outcome?
No Globe reporter could ever watch that without being upset that the Americans trick and kill their captors.
They would have turned it off right there and written an appropriately hate-filled, anti-American story on how Hollywood was being infested by evangelical Christians.
That paper's banner should be "The Boston GLOB!"
The "blacks" are mere pawns in the attempt for leftist domination. The moment Democrats return to power, blacks will be returned to the plantation where they'll toil under the watchful gaze of Grand Cyclops Robert Byrd.
I can understand now why the it is called the "Boston Globe". Mosques have a "globe" on top.
I would like to give everyone at that rag a surprise urine test to find out what makes them all so delusional and paranoid.
To what end do they print this vitriol? It only serves to stir up hate and divisiveness. It does not fall in the purview of news.
Don't you get it? They hate us. Us, middle Americans who go to church, raise families, have values, respect the law. They HATE us.
To all my Northern compatriots, next time you wonder why someone calls you a "DamnYankee", remember this!
WTF? Is it your water, laced with LSD? Has the cold frozen all the good parts of your brain?
DAMIFIKNOW, but, y'all sure are different, from me and mine!
We could solve most of our national problems, by redrawing our borders, to exclude just a few geographical areas!
Hell yes, it must be in the water!!
I will concede that y'all were first to stand for Freedom, but, y'all damn sure seem eager to be first, to surrender it!
"To what end do they print this vitriol? It only serves to stir up hate and divisiveness".
You shouldn't expect Russell Nichols to be writing about any "unsung heros who are white" when he's writing a feature about Black History Month.
I buy the NY Post on Sundays and read other newspapers online. The Globe has limited appeal; like much of liberal thinking, it is a dinosaur on life support.
Russert was brow beating the Governator today about the low numbers in the CA National Guard. With the media's constant denigration of the military and leftist school campuses where recruiting is constantly being fought, I couldn't tell if that was a smile or a smerk on Russert's face when he was asking the questions.
God bless our troops.
Christ man, takes some meds and calm down.
It must be all the tea dumped into boston's harbor so long ago that has infected the people of ma....
To think that the area that had so much to do with the beginning of this great nation of ours could have become so overwrought with communists and traitors.
I mean really, think about it. The home of the Boston Tea Party, the Boston Massacre and they repeatidly re-elect an admitted (I went to Paris France and met with the representatives of the North Vietnamese Government, and with the representives of the Viet Cong) TRAITOR, john f'n kerrey as well as fat boy teddy the swimmer kennedy.
Has to be all the tea in the water.
The problem is not the North, it is that we have the larger cities, which counterbalance the rational folks in the rest of the state. If you judged Texas by Houston, or if you judged Lousiana by New Orleans, or if you judged Georgia by Atlanta, you would get the same thing.
Cities are not good for mental health, apparently.
I found this on a very popular left-wing site:
"I think the US troops are murderous thugs who should be incarcerated (after a fair trial). I do however support the real heroes of this war -- those Iraqis who are fighting for their freedom and the freedoms of their families and neighbours against US thugs."No registration needed to comment there. You might want to add your comments.
"Christ man, takes some meds and calm down".
You there and fighting, where? Iraq?
Good for you, by the way I was fighting before you were in diapers and long after. Save your hatred for the hajis not other Americans.
"Cities are not good for mental health, apparently".
I understand. I commented on the recent death of a fellow who trained as a hydraulic engineer, had decided that he was also competent on geography, and asserted that geysers could float continents across the face of the earth and justify a very young earth. He was one of the leading lights of the "Intelligent Design" movement.
Some things are so ridiculous that only an intellectual could believe.
"commanding officer that the colonel was familiar with the needs of blacks because the colonel had raised blacks on his plantation."
That must've been one very OLD commanding officer!!!!
I would rather suppose that he had black sharecroppers.
