I guess the people in his hometown don’t want to honor a deserter. There is a major untold story with this guy, as to why he was being held, or voluntarily stayed with, the Taliban.

They should move the welcome home party to Levenworth, Kansas.

I hope his parents are forced into hiding for doubling down on STUPID and going on TV trying to sell us their defector son as a hero, and for dad's muzzie beard and brazen tribute to terrorists IN THEIR LANGUAGE.

The hometown is probably getting threats and are afraid to celebrate defector Bergdahl. GOOD.

His old man said the other day that he was PROUD that his son was born the same day as Lady Gaga.

These morons have taken shallow no/low information to a new NADIR!!

But wait, on Yahoo his ballet dance teacher (and later roommate) said this is all a misunderstanding. While acknowledging she knows nothing about his time in the army she is sure everybody else is wrong.

Good, there is plenty out there now that shows this guy was no hero.

Sucks for the town that the whole left culture tried to spin him as a hero, but they don’t have the grip on America they once had and the truth has gotten past them. I hope this is a trend and the whole liberal progressive 100-year experiment is coming to an end in America.

Oh, they wanted to honor him alright. The problem they had was that the public was watching, and didn't approve. The heat got to them.

yeah that flush faced woman was interviewed on Hannity last evening. She seemed like a typical liberal just throwing out excuses as to why he said he was ashamed at being an American and why he deserted his men and almost everyone he served with stated he was a deserter. The lamest excuse was the men he served with were mistaken because they may have been confused (I forget her actual words) due to the mental anguish of war. You could tell Hannity wasn’t buying her BS.

Would have been embarrassing to have the punk booed and have rotten fruit and tomatoes tossed at him during his welcome home parade.

They probably cancelled it because they don;t think he’ll shave his beard or wear western clothes.

Heather Dawson, the city administrator of Hailey, Idaho, said town officials called off the June 28 event at the request of organizers because the town “will be unable to safely manage the number of people expected.”

Thanks to Obama, the Taliban’s price for that couple (and their child, if still alive) just went up significantly.

Yes, it makes perfect sense... he gets to go back with his buddies, and if he gets released, he gets to go back to where he wants to be in the first place.

I would imagine that several libs signed up to fight only to try and pull crap like this guy did. I can remember seeing a vid of the “human shields” in Iraq singing on street corners while the Iraqi population walked by looking dumbfounded and embarrassed. One woman in particular was strumming her guitar singing a Joan Bias protest song. The Iraqis just walked by her looking at her like she was crazy. After the invasion, they found a white western female in the streets, beheaded and nude.

I think this is the real reason why it was cancelled.

I'm don't think anyone would have been throwing things at him (that's assault), but you can be sure the parade would have been attended by many veterans and other people outraged by the hero's welcome for a deserter.

And they likely would have expressed their displeasure in various ways protected by the First Amendment.

Or better yet, the nearest Oak tree with a large enough limb to support a hanging body.

he forgot how to speak English.

Yet oddly enough, he was able to read and write notes, when first placed on the helicopter?

How does that work?

Is this a common phenomena?

Did it ever happen on Gilligan's Island ? ? ?

People who want to do crap like this should do a lower stakes survey trip to an inner city in America. See how much kindness is reciprocated there. The Closing of the American Mind is getting people killed.
