VFW demands apology after host says he's 'uncomfortable' calling fallen soldiers heroes
foxnews.com ^ | 5/28/12 | foxnews.com

Posted on 05/28/2012 11:42:36 AM PDT by ColdOne

"Chris Hayes' recent remarks on MSNBC regarding our fallen service members are reprehensible and disgusting," VFW National Commander Richard DeNoyer said in a statement to FoxNews.com. "His words reflect his obvious disregard for the service and sacrifice of the men and women who have paid the ultimate price while defending our nation. His insipid statement is particularly callous because it comes at a time when our entire nation pauses to reflect and honor the memory of our nations' fallen heroes."

He continued: "It is especially devastating to the many broken-hearted children, spouses and parents, left behind to grieve for a loved one. Such an ignorant and uncaring and blatant disregard for people's deep feelings are indefensible, and that is why the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States demand that Mr. Hayes and MSNBC provides an immediate and unequivocal apology."

Remember, this is an example of NBC News. These folks may carry US passports...but they mostly hate this country...at least that part of it they refer to as “flyover country”; and that’s where most of our military come from.

NBC wants socialism, and they want it yesterday. Oh...just as long as they get to advise the new socialist government.

This is exactly what that little Sissy Mary wanted. He knows controversy like this will increase his flaccid ratings and hopefully make him a “star” in the MSNBC firmament.

I’ve been praying for that scenario to be nationwide as we simply cannot co-exist with these liberal POS’s.

Wasn’t this sort of comment directed to the men and women of the New York Fire Department that lost their lives shortly after 9/11?

I'm not "uncomfortable" calling Chris Hayes a steaming pantload of Socialist crap who doesn't (1) understand what is is to be an American and (2) deserve to be an American.

F you, Chris. I wouldn't cross the street to piss on you if your eyes were on fire.

I guess Chrissy would be more comfortable had Hitler continued killing non-Aryans, Sadam gassing his people, and OBL continuing to plan terrorist attacks on innocents - because without our brave men and women in uniform, that’s exactly what would have happened.

He’s just trying to impress his friends. They all live in a bubble. They all dress alike and speak alike and have the same vocabulary and gestures. They like to impress each other. Other than that, they don’t do much.

we should email the studio, and let them know we are very ‘uncomfortable’ about watching MSNBC, so we won’t watch anymore.

Mr. Hayes' wife works in the Obama White House in the communications section.

At best, his statement is incredibly insensitive. Even a lot of anti-war types can separate the grandeur of fulfilling individual duty with unfortunate war and peace decisions made at the top.

I hope the guy does some soul searching and apologizes to all the families of the American heroes he slighted.

Like Robert E, Lee's famous statement implies, duty itself is a sublime virtue and Mr. Hayes and many leftists often seem to have a hard time seeing that.

MSNBC has proven time and time again what type of reporters they hire in their organization. Time to go after MSNBC and shut them down for promoting communist thinking and U.S. soldiers are protecting their rights to operate in this country.

Mr. Hayes is too young to remember the Vietnam war, but I do very well, and I remember the torrent of "baby killer" abuse that stemmed from the assumption that spitting at soldiers was "rhetorically proximate" to a blow for peace. It is a convenient, cowardly turn of phrase that provides the speaker the cover of sanctimony and absolves him from the consequences of what he said.

Absolution in theory, at least. In practice, everything that comes out of Hayes's mouth from now on is going to be colored by his audience knowing perfectly well what has preceded it. To some of his audience, that's just fine. To the rest of us, it's a ticket to the channel changer.

If they were to get more than a dozen or so emails like that, they'd know it was a put-up job. They don't have that many viewers.

The Commander left out that there are siblings such as myself who also have had siblings dishonored. My brother was killed on Okinawa. AS a WWII vet I have disgust for people who blow nonsense about Vets , especially those who could have/might have had the opportunity to serve. In another vein Obama and Romney’s family come to mind as draft dodgers.

You may think that you don’t support this or other types of these statements when you change the channel. The truth is that if you have cable a portion of your payment goes to MSNBC. The only way to get people like this off TV is to pitch your cable. I get things all the time now that I have gotten rid of my cable. Screw them I find statements like this very offensive and will not pay for this or other like minded programs to continue.

Oh yes I do. The country now allows fag marriage, socialized medicine, a changing ungrateful demographic where whites are the enemy, and a liberal mass who laughs at conservatives whose only solution is to pray or bitch on FR.

I will say it again: co-existing with liberals can never happen. They are traitors to the country.

Anyone who disparages our troops and yet avails himself of all the perks and privileges of freedom is lower than snail sh*t, and should be put to work in a Japanese coal mine ca. 1942 or transported back in time and imprisoned in Buchenwald or Auschwitz.

The d-bag supposedly is married to Kate Shaw, associate counsel for — you guessed it — Bathhouse Barry. She likely is a beard for the little fag-maggot.

Have you noticed how most/all libs/progressives are filled with self-loathing? I've never met one who had any genuine self confidence built upon accomplishment, integrity, and true compassion for others. They can only (pretend) to feel good about themselves by belittling and demeaning others. When they fail (which is frequent) they ALWAYS blame someone or something else. I've never heard one admit "boy, I was wrong" (exception: those who finally awakened and became conservative). They also overlook the fact that if Socialism/Communism/Progressivism/Islam wins THEY will be the first purged by the despots. Idiots all. Amoral Idiots all.

His soul is most likely owned by Satan himself, no need to search.
