Melissa Harris-Perry Admits: U.S. Military 'Despised By Many Progressives'

It's hardly a secret. After all, in a letter to a senior officer, no less than a young Bill Clinton openly admitted that many of his cohort to "loath[ed] the military." Still, it's stunning to hear a modern-day liberal make a similar admission.

On her MSNBC show today, Melissa Harris-Perry stated that the U.S. military is "despised as an engine of war by many progressives."

She is an over educated semi-black lunatic. Never done a useful days work in her life. She should think over how many black people are happy they have jobs in our military

That's how confident the Maoists are today.They firmly believe that there’ll never be another Republican President.And unless the “Romney's a Godless Commie” crowd gets its act together they just might be correct.

At least that proves that the military is still doing it right, but the left is working on it.

Progressives had better worry about the rumor that the Obamadork/felon might be stacking the military command with those who would “fire upon US civilians”.

Most military, if they have been educated correctly, know that liberals are civilians also...and a considerable number of them do not respect the document that the military has sworn to protect.

He might be surprised which way those bullets fly.

And...concerning liberals and the military...the feeling is mutual.

Since she doesn’t have blonde hair and blue eyes, it’s pretty safe to say that if the United States and Soviet Union didn’t have the militaries that she and her fellow lunatics despise, she never would have existed and her recent ancestors would be nothing but ashes in unmarked pits.

Who does this pimple on *ss of life think makes it possible for her to have the freedom to “despise the military” maybe she should try taking her condescending over coiffed butt to any one of the third world utopias that I’m sure she loves and respects more than the USA and try publicly despising the people who defend her freedom! I would like to see her progress directly to a level six feet below grade.

Not so very long ago, I read the screed of a flaming Leftist who claimed "Soldiers don't defend your rights - lawyers do. When did a soldier argue with a judge over your case? Lawyers will. Lawyers are better than soldiers."

This deceived little monstrosity was utterly convinced of the rightness of his thought. This is the mind we are up against; for which there is no redemption.

I don’t know how many times during my life, but many I’ve heard it said by some Liberal, some frickin’ Leftist idiot “if there were no military there’d be no wars”.

There ya go. THAT’s Lib Logic. Idiots all.

"Melissa Harris-Perry stated that the U.S. military is "despised as an engine of war by many progressives."

That's a weak excuse to try and claim the moral highground. The truth is most progressives loathe the military because they know that most uniformed servicemembers are simply better human beings than the progs ever will be.

The obamanation neo-lib replacement military will have orders to shoot only those American citizens wearing the elephant emblem sewn into their clothing.

Dear Melissa, when the SHTF, all you need do is to identify yourself as a liberal and hold up a “Gun Free Zone” sign and you will be perfectly safe. May you get all that you deserve!
