Ted Turner was on with Piers Morgan last night.
He said, “I think it’s good U.S. troops are killing themselves.”
CNN posted the transcript:
TURNER: Its time to put war and conflict behind us and move on, and start acting like civilized, educated human beings.
MORGAN: You made the point to me in the break there, more American servicemen have
TURNER: are dying now from suicide over there than are dying in combat.
MORGAN: Thats shocking, isnt it?
TURNER: Well, what no, I think its I think its good, because its so clear that were programmed and were born to love and help each other, not to kill each other, to destroy each other. Thats an aberration. Thats left over from hundreds of years ago. Its time for to us start acting enlightened.
Some fine day we will wake up to the happy news that Ted Turner has killed himself.
Change the party of the president in power, and the story changes. The only reason this a$$whole said what he did is that there is a democrat in the White House.
these idiots are the ones supporting BHusseinO in destroying jobs, the American economy, and of course our defenses
relax, Hussein’s (and Hillary’s, this being what they share).....MuslimBrothers pals .....will soon step out from behind their cover (BHO, Hillary, etc.) and take over directly
then you can use your American flag for a prayer rug
There is a price to pay for treason. This Turner scumbag is way over due.
Agreed.. Ted is an SOB and this comment from him isn’t surprising.
I believe the increased suicide rate is directly related to the illogical rules of engagement and the kid gloves that terrorists have to be treated with.
Just the latest in a long line of stupid things Ted had said. Won’t be the last.
Oddly enough, we’re seeing more with service members who have NOT deployed.
Maybe one will take you along for the ride, Ted.
Since Ted is so ‘enlightened’ and full of love and help, I think he should be our next ambassador to Libya. He could teach those folks to be just like him.
Well, Captain Outrageous DID marry Hanoi Jane!
What does that tell you?
It's a shame, really!
One more thing...in 1998 the Braves played the San Diego Padres for a chance to go to the world series. I lived in San Diego area at the time and watched the games on TV. I remember vividly at one point during the game (it was in SD) the Braves scored and the camera went to Ted and Jane who were in the crowd.
He stood up and took off his baseball cap and was rubbing it in the face of the Padre fans.........the funniest thing was when the Padres beat the Braves Ted and Jane (the camera caught them as they left) were leaving and didn’t look a bit happy.....It was a great moment and heck quite the good memory too!
I think he should be our next ambassador to Libya.
Ohhh yes. And, he can take his equally as dumb @ssed ex-wife Jane with him. They can get some pointers on how to get along over their from their friend Obama.
You always hear stuff like this come from the mouths of people who neither respect nor understand the need to defend yourself. They live in a bullish**t utopian world, where everyone is as smart, generous and kind as they are, and the only need for self-defense is desired by chest-thumping/testosterone-soaked primitives who can only feel empowered by the ability to destroy people and things.
THAT is their world view.
And the "primitives" they deride as stupid and uncivilized keep their mouths shut and let them get away with it.
And that is the way it stays until (place the name of your favorite dictator here; Hitler, Pol Pot, King George, you name it) shows up with a gun to their heads and a hobnailed boot on their necks.
Then they cry for salvation, both to God who they formerly had no use for, and to their fellow man, who they had no need of until now. Funny how that happens.
And, like WWII, the ones who went out and did the fighting and dying to protect the pussies who had the boot on their neck, were later ridiculed and viewed with contempt by those same people once they felt safe again.
Worse, those SAME people would then have hearings to determine why we were so caught off guard and unprepared.
These people, like Ted Turner, MAKE ME WANT TO PUKE.
This is one of the few times in my life that I am speechless. I really don’t know how to respond to this.
The video is worse than the transcript. He almost says “I think its terrific” before he stops himself.
He’d better hope he never runs into a service member or veteran in an airport or on the street, unless he has a whole platoon of bodyguards, which I doubt.
That dinosaur is still ticking?
I’m so glad I saw this. Thank you Ted Turner. I’ve said and done some really stupid things in my life but now Ted has made me look like a freaking genius. Nothing like setting a record for STOOPID.
Yep, that's what he's saying.
Old Ted lives in La-La land where the realities of life are trumped by lavender skies, loving unicorns with bows in their hair, and idiots singing coke cola songs while holding hands. CNN is his brain child - have you noticed how well their doing now that they have competition? CNN's last in everything, right? So is Ted.
