Prozac Diaries: Liberals Love Our Military (?)

Via Stop The ACLU and Weasal Zippers

Never in a million years did I imagine my son would join the Army. Nor did Evan. In high school, he’d hang up on recruiters who called the house. He’d blurt, “Get away from me!” to the ones who trawled the local hangouts. Our home was liberal Democrat and anti-war and now, at 21, he was a Michael Moore fan. The night before he left, he spent his time reading “Stupid White Men.”

When I tell people that Evan has joined the Army, their reactions are almost always the same: their faces freeze, they pause way too long, and then they say, “I’m so sorry, I’m so sorry for you.” I hang my head and look mournful, accepting their sympathy for the worry that lives in me. But as it dawns on them that Evan wasn’t drafted, as Vietnam still clings to my generation, their expressions become quizzical, then disbelieving. I know what they’re thinking: Why in the world would any kid in his right mind choose to enlist when we’re in the middle of a war? I begin telling them the story, desperate to assure them it wasn’t arrogant patriotism or murderous blood lust that convinced him to join. What finally hooked him was a recruiter’s comment that if he thought the country’s role in Iraq was so screwed up, he should try to fix it.

Now Evan is serving in Iraq. I wake up early these days. I make coffee, retrieve the morning papers and then compulsively read every story about murdered soldiers, beheaded soldiers, tortured soldiers, wounded soldiers, soldiers with missing limbs and damaged brains, soldiers who have gone berserk and raped and murdered innocent civilians. I purposely teeter on the edge of fear and grief, bracing myself for whatever the future brings.

Does this Mom speak for all the liberals like Cindy Sheehan does? Will she be taken to task by her liberal friends for exposing what liberals really think of the military.

On the bright side, maybe her kid will come home a man, instead of the liberal pansy beating on drums like his mom taught him

    

This story deserves the full 5 Prozacs, as it exposes exactly what liberals think of the military and those who serve.

    Arrogant patriotism…

    So that’s what they think. How DARE we love our country. How Arrogant of us to think that there’s something worth preserving in our nation.

    I guess the reason they’re so outraged when we question their patriotism isn’t because they’re offended that we think they don’t have any. It’s that they’re offended that we think they would “stoop so low” as to hold an arrogant attitude like patriotism.

    We’re insulting them when we question their patriotism, because they don’t have any. It would be arrogant to be a patriot, and the lord knows (notice the little “L”) that liberals are anything but arrogant.

    I guess Liberalism, like many other disabilities, skips a generation every once in a while.

  4. A Liberal Mother’s Son Joins the Military and She Doesn’t Have a Clue…

    I came so close to not reading this story. Its gotten to the point that reading about what people like this think of our military infuriates me so bad that I can almost literally feel my blood pressure going up as I read it. When I saw the …

    The Hollyweirdo Demlibloonies and MoveOver.Orgy crowd don’t want to know that freedom isn’t free and that our 231-years of liberty are a blessing from GOD above – period. The Nutsy Pelosi & Meatballs crowd “support the troops but not the war” and “support the troops but not the president” and “support the troops but not the generals”…and “support the spaghetti but not the meatballs”… They’re like spoiled children that cry when they want their Ovaltine drinks and hide under the blankets nightly for the Boogey Man to go away! Poll these facts John Ryan!
