Why Do Liberal Media Despise Our Troops?
Human Events ^ | June 13 2006 | Rabbi Aryeh Spero

Posted on 06/12/2006 9:25:54 PM PDT by Reagan Man

Every six months or so, the liberal media search for any story that casts our soldiers in a bad light. Abu Ghraib was portrayed as indicative of almost the entire U.S. Army when, in fact, it consisted of less than 1/1000 %. Besides which, in the scheme of possible war atrocities, it doesn't even rank. It was more uncouth behavior than atrocity.

As soon as a scenario is found where our soldiers defended themselves from enemy fire, road bombs or check-point crashing cars, the media indict our boys, without first considering the circumstances which necessitated the shooting response. Guilty! Guilty until proven innocent.

It is quite obvious the media have a preconceived attitude toward our men and women in uniform and look for events to affirm their view. It is equally obvious that the media do not wait to issue its guilty judgement, even before the facts come in. For in the media's mind, the guilty outcome is a foregone conclusion given the liberal media's notion of who our soldiers really are. They want to believe the worst.

In the mind of most of today's smug liberals, our soldiers are rednecks -- and rednecks, when let loose and not under control of "civilized" liberals, do what comes natural to rednecks -- they act rednecky. Liberals feel that way since, in their parochial view, who would enlist and volunteer unless one is poor, has no chance for upward mobility, and has a tendecy and lust for violence?

They believe this since most have no friends or family in the military. These elitists perceive the soldier and the military as below their class. Perhaps they heard of a grandfather who served back in the days when there was a draft, but not today.

Why do they so despise our military? Why do they never come to its defense? Why do they never understand the frightful plight of the soldier who, when fired upon by the enemy, has no recourse but to fire back if he wishes to stay alive? Why does the liberal not understand what he has seen countless times, namely, that the Jihadist enemy positions women and children in his front while shooting at our soldiers?

It is because the liberal moralizer deep down knows that he does not have the physical courage and might of the soldier. Compared to the soldier, he is a coward and weakling. His strength lies only in bringing law suits and sounding morally superior to the rest of us.

The liberal moralizer needs to tear down the U.S. soldier as a way of guaranteeing that the soldier is never elevated to a more honored level in American life than is he, the liberal moralizer. Tear down the soldier and you destroy the honor we feel toward that soldier. Find anything to show you are better than the soldier so that you and your smug liberal friends can celebrate your superiority. Liberal media guys cannot abide that America has heroes who are not them.

For the media, the heroes are Woodward and Bernstein or Washington Post and New York Times reporters who splash across the world U.S. national security secrets. They admire not those who defend but who tear down. Many entered the business for precisely that reason: to indict our institutions and ways.

By and large, certain very liberal cosmopolitan men are jealous of what the soldier can do, and have a desire, a need, to destroy the object of their envy.

By pressuring our government not to allow our soldiers engaged in urban battles to respond quickly, liberals -- especially the media -- are heightening the possibility that our young men will be killed. Their school yard "legalities" are handcuffing our soldiers and are, I'm convinced, precipitating American deaths and casualties. Our soldiers are now hesitating to defend themselves out of fear of being brought up on charges at the hands of the ACLU.

Our home-grown leftists must know how their 24/7 finger pointing and accusations are endangering the lives of our boys. Perhaps that is why they do it, not to mention a desire to humiliate our military and cause the defeat of the U.S. They have become accessories to and instruments for death.

If we in the West decide that our soldiers can never fire back at the enemy when women and children are present, then we have handed the enemy a sure-fire method for our defeat. We might as well roll up the streets of the West, now, since the enemy can move forward with immunity house-by-house, building-by-building, in every urban setting in which they choose to fight, including London and New York.

Thank God our safety is in the hands of these guys from the Midwest and South and not those snivelly effeminates from Brown, Brandeis, Columbia and NYU. If it were so, we'd by now all be prayer rugs.

A recruiter called for my son today. I know he's not really interested, and he's got to finish his studies first (sort of dropped out, but now he's working hard to get his degree from an alternative program).

But even so, I gave the recruiter my son's telephone number, because it would please me to no end if one of my boys would enlist.

Ah well. This is something some people couldn't understand, I believe.

I suspect research would show that (a) they are trying to counter a victory for the administration and/or (b) it's election season and they're trying to pump up the Democrat side of the aisle.

Don't ever accuse the MSM of being objective and even-handed, they'd probably bite like a pit bull.

because Journalists think of themselves as life changing entities.. they become journalists to change the world. to them a press is more powerful than a fully trained army.. that is why their pompous arses think their view of the world is the best for us.. and the lowly citizens and those murderers in uniform don't know better. these are the first people to face the firing squads when their views have taken hold on the populace. these same people would not stand a chance in a dictatorship..

I cant remember who said it but I love the quote "If there ever ceases to be an America there will never be another America again." Its unfortunate that liberals don't care. Their goal is socialism and a so called living document Constitution that can be constantly formatted to fit that agenda.

Our soldiers don't fight for their version of our Constitution. They fight for a Constitution that includes God, Country and Freedom.

Many liberals hate the U.S., or at least think it needs to be "taken down a peg". The military tries to prevent that from happening.

"Why Do Liberal Media Despise Our Troops?"

...because soldiers are respected by the rest of us for being physically strong and heroic while often being humble and easy-going. Contrast that to their fantasies from the movies: characters who are half-evil. You see, Lefty believes that one cannot be tough without being a vain bully. And Lefty doesn't want us to bust his/her bubble with nice, polite, self-disciplined, real heroes.

Once upon a time, I was a "weekend warrior." Because of my appearance, bearing (and having to leave work sometimes on Friday afternoons for MUTA-5s), a woman who worked beside me asked if I'd been in the service. After she found out, she started talking about how "mean," rough (and criminal) her older boyfriend was--"looks like Willy Nelson," "rides motorcycles," "has guns," and so on. She didn't let-up after that, but I never saw him, either. She was middle-aged, several times divorced, more than outspoken (domineering might be a good word), loved country music while hating our country, hated soldiers and generally hated men. Our Midwest is full of 'em.

Limbaugh has long believed in their need to "validate their youth", which they wasted on utter frivolity. Their deepest passions were not naive but fully, consciously malevolent to the core. Their every doctrine proved disasterously wrong, and now they desperately want to salvage any meaning that says otherwise.

One method is to project their s--t upon the next generation. Lies and truth won't matter to that end, so long as they raise kids who are free of shame, "violence", and - above all - a free and spirited will of individual strength.

Find a liberal and ask them how they feel after reading this poem?

The Soldier

It is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.

It is the soldier, not the lawyer, who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the soldier,

who salutes the flag,

who serves under the flag,

and whose coffin is draped by the flag,

who allows the protester to burn the flag.

LOL! Wow! ...way to go!

You know how many of the students at Fayetteville and similar places are. ...and the people who did vote for Clinton. I lived a little north of there for a few years and once worked with a woman who was going for a PhD. in history at Fayetteville (a feminist revisionist--not the one I was mentioning in the other post). She was nearly psychotic.

Its that U.S. emblem thing on their uniform.

The Left is not anti-military, only anti-U.S.

The Left doesn't mind the military of other countries, and celebrates the military from communist countries. Never had we ever heard a discouraging word about The Red Army, PLA, NVA, and Viet Cong.

The Left positively lionized the Abraham Lincoln Brigage, Americans fighting for Commies in Spain.

This is a good article..some observations: While watching tv this morning and watching the General describe how al-Zarqawi was killed this morning i was struck by the gross ignorance of the reporters..Not only did they ask their liberally biased questions, but they asked such idiotic things as: why didn't the US troops give any consideration to capturing al-Z rather than letting him die...letting him die ?!..he just experienced two 500 lb bomb blasts and had massive internal injuries- including blown out lungs and sinus cavities- thats why he died !..why was there such a big bruise on his face ?..no, it wasn't from a rifle butt..it was from being slammed into a wall which also happened to crush his hip..their questions also had hints of heavy sarcasm- like, why was it the field commanders decision to kill al-Z, rather than wait for permission from higher headquarters?

Rather than say the nasty liberal media have this intellectual and moral superiority, i think it is a case of saying it is matter of deep ignorance and unconscionable indecency..also blatant disregard for the past successes of the military in keeping this country free for the past 240 years to protect their constitutional freedoms to ask their obtuse questions. They are repugnant, they are traitors, their behavior is deeply shameful,and they are a disgrace to their profession to show the world their deep lack of knowledge of US History and callous disregard for a country that is fighting for it's very existence.

That was the best line I have read in a editorial in a long time,but it is the truth.Those hippie,pinko,commie bastards would not pick up a rifle to defend this country if it was their own life on the line.

This is Denim Pragers explanation(excepts from his article,"What is a Liberal?"


Why do people hold liberal-left positions? (Liberal and left were once very different, but not anymore.)

This question has plagued me because I have long believed that most people, liberal or conservative, mean well. Very few people wake up in the morning planning to harm society. Yet, many liberal positions -- I emphasize liberal positions rather than liberals because most people who call themselves liberal do not hold most contemporary liberal positions -- have been wreaking havoc on America and the world.

How, then, can decent and often very smart people hold liberal positions?

There are many reasons, but the two greatest may be naivete and narcissism. Each alone causes problems, but when combined in the same person, they are particularly destructive.

At the heart of liberalism is the naive belief that people are basically good. As a result of this belief, liberals rarely blame people for the evil they do. Instead, they blame economics, parents, capitalism, racism, and anything else that can let the individual off the hook.

A second naive liberal belief is that because people are basically good, talking with people who do evil is always better than fighting, let alone killing, them. "Negotiate with Saddam," "Negotiate with the Soviets," "War never solves anything," "Think peace," "Visualize peace" -- the liberal mind is filled with naive cliches about how to deal with evil.

Indeed, the very use of the word "evil" greatly disturbs liberals. It shakes up their child-like views of the world, that everybody is at heart a decent person who is either misunderstood or led to do unfortunate things by outside forces.

"Child-like" is operative. >

Best paragraph in the article:

The liberal moralizer needs to tear down the U.S. soldier as a way of guaranteeing that the soldier is never elevated to a more honored level in American life than is he, the liberal moralizer. Tear down the soldier and you destroy the honor we feel toward that soldier. Find anything to show you are better than the soldier so that you and your smug liberal friends can celebrate your superiority. Liberal media guys cannot abide that America has heroes who are not them.

WHY? Because liberals/leftists believe THEY are entitled to inherit the American political power turf. Also, THEY may be afraid of future Military Coups so by demonizing and defunding the Military, they may save themselves. Remember how Hillary Clinton reacted: she ordered that no military member look her in the eye and that they not look at her. WEIRD! Hillary wants to be Commander in Chief?! If president, she would create a Gay Cadre to surround her, I'll bet.

Dennis Prager has said that liberals believe that people basically good, therefore there is no room for evil.

Remember, these are the same people who supported the nuclear freeze with the Soviet Union. The scary thing is that the vote went down to defeat with a single vote.

Don't miss this article:

Why Do Liberal Media Despise Our Troops? ^

Snippet:
In the mind of most of today's smug liberals, our soldiers are rednecks -- and rednecks, when let loose and not under control of "civilized" liberals, do what comes natural to rednecks -- they act rednecky. Liberals feel that way since, in their parochial view, who would enlist and volunteer unless one is poor, has no chance for upward mobility, and has a tendecy and lust for violence?

I agree with the "naivete" angle, but I'm not sure about the "narcissism" reasoning. Narcissism is more of a objectivist belief.
