New York Magazine 'Observes' Memorial Day Weekend by Posting Photos of Nude Servicemen
NewsBusters ^ | May 24, 2014 | P.J. Gladnick

Memorial Day should be observed by honoring the men and women in the military who have fallen for America. New York Magazine has found another way of observing the Memorial Day Weekend while at the same time pushing a certain political agenda. They have invaded the privacy of World War II servicemen and their families by publishing nude photographs of them: 10 Intimate Photographs of World War II Soldiers in the Buff.

Writer Christopher Bonanos can barely contain his excitement over the photos as he practically drools over himself while eagerly pushing a socio/political agenda at a time when those who have fallen should be honored:

Not really offensive or disrespectful I suppose.

Still, I would find it awkward explaining to my wife why I have all these particular pix on my computer.

I don’t think all of those are of Americans. The men sitting on the thunderpole may be Germans. I’ve seen similar of Germans sitting on thunderpoles. The men on the rocks overlooking the water also may be German judging by their swept back hairstyle.

All these people care about is their agenda. They are as self centered as babies.

My Dad was with the 5th Marines and he told me after 45 days on the line with out changing uniform that they didn’t even try to clean them. They just striped off and washed in the ocean and got new uniforms. As for see other Marines in the buff it was no big deal as you had just seen 50% of you buddies being shot and turned into human meat burger. No one at the New Yorker has been in the shit so they have no ideal what there taking about. I hate these left wing ass hats more than I can even say. One day you will pay, if not here when you stand before G_D.

I bought some CDs from Zenos of WWII aviators in the SW Pacific. While it showing, my stepmother—suffering from dementia—pointed at the screen, and exclaimed, "That swimmer is naked!"

Yes, she was correct, but my "Greatest Generation" Navy-pilot Dad and I (Vietnam) didn't pay any mind.

Men were far less concerned about nudity decades ago, it was perfectly fine and normal to go skinny-dipping. As the world has gotten increasingly sexualized, people react to a distinctly un-sexual situation as if it were somehow sexual. And so they publish these old images, pretending to be slightly aghast while secretly being titillated, I suspect. And, they imagine that the rubes in flyover country are horrified. My southern, white, conservative reaction is, so what?

These men fought, and many of them died, so that faggots like Bonanos would have the freedom to masturbate over pictures of men who could have been their grandfathers. /s

My grandfather, a WWII Colonel, would have been livid about the mag writer’s offensive tripe. Why is the magazine & the paper so homosexual? Do they own it? I just read they own Hollywood. Explains why I see so much of homosexuals mushing faces (kissing).

My Dad was in the Army in the Phillipines on some Godforsaken Island or other. They didn’t have hot showers and McDonalds. They ate spam, powdered eggs, K rations and bathed in the surf all the time.

This BS hit piece is just the progressive commies pushing the its OK to be gay in the military agenda.

WW II submarines in the tropics were so hot and humid that the crew sometimes went naked to avoid passing out.

My dad was only a Gunny but was not a limp dick gay fudge packer like the $ss holes at the New Yorker. After WW2 he was a L.A. County Sheriff for 35 years and raised three kids and took care of a sick wife tell the day she died. At his funeral my uncle said it best “ Your dad was one good f@@king Marine”. I wear a GOLD STAR everyday for my brother killed in 1968 and he was not a fairy. If the New York Mag wants to find gays they need to go over to White Hut.

I loaded them into GIMP, enlarged them and am confident that many of the ten are of Europeans. The men sitting on the rock with one diving are are probably Germans judging by the hairstyle.

The men forming the human bridge/pyramid definitely look like Eastern Europeans. The two on either side wearing swim trunks look like Western Europeans. The nude men may have been Russian POWs, or from a labor unit.

The latrine pole is definitely in Europe and the men are European.

I suspect the three men in the shower are European based on the type shower sandals all three are wearing.

Yes, I too made the mistake of reading the comments section.

I really really really f-ing hate those people.

How disrespectful of our dead, which is the point of this day.

Sad.

I see it differently. At any other time, I might shrug my shoulders. But on this weekend, I find it offensive.

Memorial Day is a day for honoring and remembering our war dead. Damn liberals like this person have to do something like this.

It just doesn’t fit. I don’t like it, and not going to make a federal case out of it, but...I think it is disrespectful.

I agree. It was out of context, twisted to their agenda and disrespectful to the men in the pictures , who were not engaging in homosexual behavior.
