An angry Steve Newton, Founder of the Silver Star Families of America, called on Chris Hayes to resign or be terminated for his recent comments on MSNBC on the fallen of the United States Military. “Mr. Hayes comments that he is somehow “uncomfortable” with the word “hero” to describe our fallen Soldiers are reprehensible. As with a lot of the pundits in Washington he seems unable to separate politics from the sacrifices of our military.” He continued, “He seems to have no sense of the hurt his words will bring to the families and friends of those who have paid the ultimate price for his freedom. I would strongly suggest another line of work for Mr. Hayes that might increase his empathy and his love of country---say in the military.” The Silver Star Families of America is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to remember, honor and assist the wounded, ill, injured and dying of our Armed Forces.

Mr. Hays, we know you’re a liberal; liberals do not understand history, nor do they understand the importance of a strong nation. Because of these shortfalls, liberals do not understand the importance of strong military or why their sacrifices deserve great respect.

You do not need to apologize. We understand your type. Some day you will learn why you are wrong. Until that day, we will pray for your education.

Very well said.

But a question.

WHY?

Why can’t even a liberal say “thank you” to someone that has given up his or her life for them?

It is beyond me.

I become more angry by the day

Terminated with extreme prejudice! Oh, we don’t do that, do we? Then just fire his dumb ass and give him two kicks in the ass on his way out the door (don’t open it). That’s my kind of polite “double tap”.

I wish I had the leeway to say that.

I seriously cannot think of words to describe how I feel about this-—person.

His lack of pride in this country and his lack of empathy for the fallen is beyond words.

I pray there are not too many like him

Yes!!

Stick it to this bassturd. They need to make a big STINKING example out of him.

You DO NOT trample on the graves of the Fallen. That is simply declasse. Keep your grubby politics out of ANY talk about those in uniform, especially those who have sacrificed.

Zero tolerance for this BS.

Told this story already, but we walked back across the Arlington Memorial bridge this weekend with a Gold Star mother after Rolling Thunder. Just lost her son in 2008 in Afghanistan. Luckily he has a twin who was not in the military. Not a finer lady, and not a more handsome son could have been found.

Thinking of her having to listen to this garbage mouth breaks my heart. I hope she skipped the news this weekend.

Now.

That brings tears to my eyes.

You are exactly right.

Why? Why should she have to listen to this bull crap??

Sigh

Thank you for what you did my Friend.

I am sure you took care of the Gold Star Mother.

Too bad oh Chris couldnt have been there. Maybe he would have learned something.

Then again-—nawww

Well, Steve — we just walked with her across that bridge. We didn’t know her. It was very hot, sun blaring, and she was having to walk in the direction of Arlington, where her son was buried. I can’t imagine how much of a bummer that would have been to have to do alone. She was probably fine, though, as she is one strong lady. I’m glad we were there, at that moment, just to wave her over to the metro stop.
But we almost didn’t go. We almost just felt like staying home, not going down. Not taking the time. I’m glad we did — as we received a blessing back from attending Rolling Thunder and meeting her. My husband has 26 years in the military — and was deployed a couple of times, but made it home everytime. We are really, really lucky. She and her family were not so lucky.

But all of them GO. They all put on that uniform knowing full well luck may just not be with them one day. They ARE heroes, in EVERY sense of the word. “If not me, then Who,” is what they all say. We all need to “walk with” these families. Just by remembering, and honoring them, and for some, by just keeping their mouths shut at the appropriate times, if that’s all they can manage to do.

Unfortunately, I got cross-ways with my fiancee this afternoon. We have a WWII vet that comes down to the camp every single day for two beers. She bought him a beer in honor of Memorial Day. I called her to the back and asked if she knew the meaning of the day.

To her credit, she realized what she had done. It won't happen again. Over and over I keep seeing pols and newsmedia trying to honor vets on this day trying to score 'brownie points'.

Come on people, this is "Memorial Day"!

So true. Trust me, he gets thanked aplenty but you could tell that he was not comfortable having a beer bought for him on Memorial Day. He was embarrassed.

He told me that he was 20 years old the day Pearl Harbor was bombed and that he went straight down that day and enlisted.

The man is a HERO as far as I'm concerned!

Hayes’s wife, lawyer Kate Shaw, works in the WHITE HOUSE Counsel’s office. Hired by Obama, she is the daughter of liberal Chicago journalist Andy Shaw and early and fiercely partisan Obama supporter. The Chicago Way.

We revere those that made their sacrifice in the name of freedom. They don’t.

With that said, he, and all the others like him are doing us a favor the more they expose their true feelings.

I disagree with everything he and the rest of his leftist cohorts believe in, but I can’t be mad at him for giving an honest assessment of how he sees things. Besides, he has the First Amendment on his side.

WHY? Why can’t even a liberal say “thank you” to someone that has given up his or her life for them?

The price of being a liberal is giving up your humanity. Once you do that, what are you? By definition, you're not human. You don't live your live to develop yourself spiritually. Instead, you are a group parasite, feeding off of what the group gives you, obeying what the group tells you to do. And because your existence is so shameful, you spend all of your time claiming the highest morality, while viciously attacking anyone you fear might suspect your fraud.

Liberals are not what you think they are. They are not misguided humans, they are not ignorant, and they are not out of control.

They have chosen what they are too ashamed to tell you about.

I thought about Hayes' comments while at my city's Memorial Day Parade. As the band played 'The Star Spangled Banner', while facing the flag at half mast, with our hands over our hearts, I noticed folks in wheel chairs and those who used walkers stand. Then, as the VFW, American Legion, and other patriotic marchers trudged the long walk, many people had tears in their eyes, some actually crying. And, I said to myself, if our veterans, dead or alive, are not heroes, then why are so many people saluting them? Most don't know the men and women they are crying for, but they do know they are American heroes.

Younger folks might scream and faux faint at seeing Justin Beiber or Beyonce, but there is no love like the solemn respect for those who made Beiber possible.

Why can’t even a liberal say “thank you” to someone that has given up his or her life for them?

IMO:

1) Liberals are the real greedy pigs in the world ... they feel that the world owes them a living, that they are entitled to whatever they want. Hence, no gratitude is ever appropriate from them. It is given grudgingly, or insincerely, if at all.

2) Liberals seem to have trouble grasping that any enemy is really bad enough to justify war. Hence, those who risked (or gave up) their lives in war did so unnecessarily (in the liberals' opinion), and no gratitude is necessary or appropriate.

3) Liberals are narcissists ... only they, and only the things they do, are important. Most liberals don't join the military, go to war, or put their lives on the line for others. Therefore, such actions are unimportant *in the liberals' opinion), and no gratitude is necessary or appropriate.

IMO.

IANAP.

YMMV.

Some pots need to be stirred, and if you have the liberals all pissed-off, you must be doing something right.

Back in the day, I used to judge the worth or any US (or NATO) foreign policy proposal by how much and how loudly and shrilly Brezhnev howled against it. (More/Louder = Better).

The names have changed, the details have changed, the principle stays the same.
