Once again, the progressive socialist left tells us exactly who they are, and what they hold dear — or not. Consider that you have Massachusetts Democrat Congressman, Seth Moulton, who is seeking to recruit military veterans to run for Congress as Democrats. We shared his endeavor with y’all here.
However, there have been some things happening that I wonder what Rep. Moulton has to say about it…his silence is very telling.
As reported by Townhall.com, “…a high school teacher and California city councilman has been caught on video making degrading comments towards members of the military and students who choose to go into the armed forces. Specifically, the so-called “educator” calls members of the military “dumbsh*ts” and further attacks their intelligence…Gregory Salcido is a current member of the Pico Rivera City Council and a history teacher at El Rancho High School. Salcido went off on a tirade after a student wore a sweatshirt featuring the U.S. Marines Corps. logo on his sweatshirt.
“Think about the people you know who are over there,” Salcido is heard saying to his class in a video recorded by one of his students. “Your freakin’ stupid Uncle Louie or whatever. They’re dumb sh*ts. They’re not high-level bankers. They’re not academic people. They’re not intellectual people. They are the freaking’ lowest of our low. Not morally, I’m not saying they make bad moral judgements.”
Here’s the video. Warning: there’s some rough language.
According to KCAL9/CBS2, the student who recorded the video said he was very angry at his teacher’s remarks. The student says he has members of his own family in the military.”
This is a representative face of the left. It’s not an anomaly, or an isolated incident. After all, it was John Kerry who also made reference to the level of intellectual rigor of our uniformed members of our military. Kerry made an inference that those who couldn’t get an education ended up being “stuck in Iraq”…how very lovely for someone who wanted to be our president, and says he may run in 2020.
And we shouldn’t forget it was at the 2016 Democrat National Committee in Philadelphia where the attendees booed and heckled a Medal of Honor recipient, along with retired U.S. Marine Corps General John Allen. However, Barack Obama’s national security adviser, Susan Rice, stated that U.S. Army deserter, Bowe Bergdahl, served with honor and distinction.
And now we have the traitorous gender-confused former Army soldier, Bradley Manning, who has made very offensive comments towards our law enforcement officers, running for U.S. Senate in Maryland as a Democrat. And again, I haven’t heard a peep from Rep. Seth Moulton. I just gotta ask, what kind of former military veterans is he recruiting for the Democrat Party, the party of progressive socialists?
But the hits keep coming. Check out this recent comment that also gives us a window into the psyche of the progressive socialist left.
As reported by the Victory Girls Blog, “…(Not) everyone appreciates patriotic tales like “Dunkirk.” In fact, one particular writer doesn’t like traditional war movies at all.
Peter Maass at The Intercept writes: The time has come for Hollywood to turn away from war movies that, while satisfying to both a studio’s bottom line and a flag-waving concept of patriotism, perpetuate a model of masculinity that does violence to us all.
Maass especially doesn’t like the new film “12 Strong,” about the Special Forces team that fought the Afghan Taliban shortly after 9/11. Nor does he like “American Sniper,” “Zero Dark Thirty,” or “13 Hours.” Why? Because they’re also about über-masculine Special Forces. “Toxic masculinity,” you know. And Maass isn’t the only one who despises images of fearless men in films.
“Darkest Hour,” the film which tells how Winston Churchill boldly faced the Dunkirk crisis, was criticized by the New York Times. No, it wasn’t because of less-than-stellar filmmaking. It was because of “hero worship:” “. . .the filmmakers promote passivity and hero-worship, offering not so much a Great Man Theory as a great man fetish.” Never mind that British audiences stood in theaters to applaud this film. Certainly if any people would appreciate how Churchill saved their nation from total disaster, it’s the Brits. No, we can’t have brave men in our movies anymore, our elites tell us. No more tales of manly valor. As Maass tells us, that’s “masculine nonsense,” and an “artificial and harmful construct.” These snobs have their heads so far up their asses they could chew their food again on the way down. They don’t mind it when Hollywood makes movies about women kicking men in the balls, do they? But a “model of masculinity does violence to us all,” according to Maass.”
Yes, I concur, who are these elitist snobs telling us that being a man, masculinity, is toxic. Doggone, I bet Mr. Maass is repulsed by the image of John Wayne. This is the liberal progressive left, and what they see as a cultural pursuit, and in the end, these beliefs have detrimental effects on our military. If the left attains political power.
During the Clinton administration, there was a dedicated effort to eradicate the “warrior ethos.” it came by way of mandated “consideration of others” training. During the Obama administration, it was the mandated women in direct combat units and gender dysphoria service members…which still permeates in the Trump administration — due to those pesky Obama holdovers, and the questionable actions of the current SecDef.
Gregory Salcido and Peter Maass are not outliers; they represent a deep-seeded sentiment in the progressive socialist left. They despise strong American men, perhaps it’s because their existence only serves to expose them as weak, feckless males — kinda like a previous president we just had who preferred to “lead from behind,” This is what the left believes, and how they speak not just in their swanky closed gatherings, but openly.
Just think about this: the first Army ROTC program was at Harvard University. Harvard University also once, removed the ROTC program from their campus – how about that for academic elitism? I tell you what, I’d much rather stand with any young Soldier, Sailor, Airman or Marine combat troop than some elitist jerk.
And I’d prefer to sit down and have a good ol’ American cheeseburger and fries with Army 1LT Clint Lorance than Salcido, Maass, Barack Obama, or any other weak, feckless, mom jeans-wearing wussy boy. We need more strong masculine role models in our America…and kneeling overgrown football players ain’t it! We need more types of fellas like my former cadet, Mark Nutsch, and his Special Forces team, who led our immediate response to al-Qaeda and the Taliban after 9-11.
That exemplifies the best our country has to offer!
