The HuffPo Post Of The Day: Insulting The Troops While Attacking Rush Limbaugh For Supposedly Attacking The Troops

by John Hawkins | October 3, 2007 7:15 am

This quote from Huffington Post columnist Stan Goff[1] is so ironic that it’s almost funny (emphasis mine),

Right-wing buffoon Rush Limbaugh takes a swipe at Iraq veterans who oppose the war… who can defend themselves quite nicely, if they even feel inclined to respond to this kind of schoolyard boy-baiting.

Democrat flaks jump on this like ducks on a June-bug, and in the process themselves reproduce the sick militarism of this culture that automatically valorizes anyone who wears a uniform. How dare you insult a soldier! Like its some sacred calling instead of an imperial employment program steeped in the culture of machismo and misogyny. (And you can gasp as theatrically as you want… I spent more than two decades wearing a uniform… that is exactly what it is.)

So Goff thinks that the military is an, “imperial employment program steeped in the culture of machismo and misogyny.”

In other words, while writing a column chastising Rush Limbaugh for supposedly insulting the troops, which of course Limbaugh didn’t do, Goff makes it clear that he holds the military and people who serve in contempt.

You just can’t make this stuff up!

PS: Back on September 18, I said this[2],

“This just goes to show you that even the decency and honor that’s drummed into the troops when they serve can be eaten away by the corrosive effects of liberalism.”

This column is just another piece of evidence that I was right.
