A MAN NAMED HAROLD
A man named Harold and a president named Barack. The following summarizes how most liberals view the U.S. military. Harold was a bright child. He grew up in America. He went to school and had a bright future ahead of him. Harold was full of life but was cut short in a violent moment. While few people had ever heard of Harold before his death, many did afterward. And in death, something very shocking happened. What was so shocking, especially when it is compared to the death of someone else in the news.
Harold was Harold Greene, Major General, United States Army. On August 5, 2014, Major General Greene was killed by a Taliban terrorist. He was returned to America with full military honors. It has been a tradition that the president attend the funeral of Generals and Flag officers killed in the line of duty. Richard Nixon attended the funeral of Major General Casey killed in Vietnam and George W. Bush attended the funeral of Lieutenant General Timothy Maude, who was killed in the 9/11 attacks. While Major General Greene was buried, Barack Obama was golfing. The vice President wasn’t there either. Neither was the Secretary of Defense. Flags were not even lowered half-mast.
Four days after Harold Greene gave his life for America, Michael Brown was killed in Ferguson, Missouri. Brown was at best a young thug. In the minutes before his death, he committed a robbery at a local convenience store. According to other reports, Brown struck Officer Darren Wilson and shattered his orbital bone. Obama sent a three-person delegation to Brown’s funeral! Neither Obama nor Biden would attend the funeral of the highest ranking military officer killed in the line of duty since 9/11, yet he sent a delegation to the funeral of a thug.
When Margaret Thatcher, one of America’s staunchest allies and Ronald Reagan’s partner in bringing down Soviet communism died, Obama only sent a small low-level delegation to her funeral. The snub was not missed by the British. When Chris Kyle, the most lethal American sniper in history was murdered, there was no expression of sympathy from the Obama White House. But when Whitney Houston died from a drug overdose, the Obama/Biden administration ordered all flags be flown at half-mast.
There was no White House delegation at the funeral of an American hero. American heroes die and Obama goes to the golf course. A thug dies and he gets a White House delegation. No wonder most “REAL” Americans hold Obama in such contempt, especially members of our great military. And Biden is now expounding on how great the Obama/Biden administration was.
We must all stand up for all the “Harold’s” in America.
AN OPINION FROM THE DEPLORABLE INFIDEL
Jerry Nadler stood in the well of the Senate chamber and had the gall to say the Republicans lie, lie, lie, lie. If I remember correctly, was it not Adam Schiff that rewrote the transcript of President Trump’s telephone call with the president of Ukraine and read it before the House Intelligence Committee? And the Republicans lie? Give me a break!. Ever notice how Schiff and Nadler favor Laurel and Hardy, in more ways than one?
A SIMPLE TRUTH FOR TODAY
“Everyone is in favor of free speech. Hardly a day passes without its being extolled, but some people’s idea of it is that they are free to say what they like, but if anyone else says anything back, that is an outrage.”
