American Legion Blowback

A comment from One Pissed off Veteran to American Legion’s Thomas Cadmus:

Hey, motherfucker, you DO NOT speak for me and you do not speak for the millions of other veterans who are actively opposed to this illegal and immoral war. What WE say is that we should never let happen again the foolish and needless squandering of American lives for a business deal. Our men and women in uniform are there to protect us; they are not there to be venture capital for the corrupt and evil Bush Crime Family.

You want to talk about "whatever means necessary"? We know what that means. You are skirting the issue, but everyone knows that you are talking about violence. Remember Malcolm X? Any means necessary? Remember that? Don't try to backpedal and give me any shit about not meaning "violence" when you know exactly what you mean.

Let it be known from this point forward that the American Legion is officially a Stalinist/Fascist organization, and if any of their jackbooted Nazi thug motherfuckers want to start something, we will be more than ready.

Mister Cadmus, how dare you try to take away my freedom to protest, my freedom to speak out against my government and its abysmal international terrorist foreign policy, its criminal acts against its own wounded veterans?

How dare you attempt to abrogate my constitutionally-protected right to peaceably assemble and petition my government for a redress of grievances?

You are so fucking stupid that you probably don't even recognize that, do you? It's in a quaint little document called The Constitution of the United States of America. You ought to try reading it sometime. Asshole.

How dare you, sir?! How fucking dare you??!!

(My Comment)

I might not have said it quite the same way, but it definitely reflects my feelings. My fourteen continuous years of membership in this organization will not extend to fifteen or beyond. I am sure I can show support for my fellow Veterans without continuing to support those who would abuse their position of trust.
