Ahh, but this is merely one isolated example, and shouldn’t be held against all of you, right, guys?
Okay, look, fellas, it’s time to stop playing silly semantic games and come clean. You fear, mistrust, and despise the US military. They make you feel like the sunken-chested, slope-shouldered, gutless commie weinerschnitzels you really are, and you’ve always resented them for that, and you always will. I mean, we’ve all known all along that your puling little “chickenhawk” whimper was nothing more than a classic case of projection, from the real cowards onto those Americans who are made of sterner stuff.
Hell, you dinks are terrified of second-hand smoke, all contact sports, dissenting opinion, and pellet guns; it only stands to reason you’d also be afraid of hulking, rugged, rough-hewn types trained to a finely-honed edge in all the various deadly arts you shudder to even contemplate from the comfort of your dorm room, cubicle, boho hipster hair salon, or internet café. You’ve always thought Patton was a dangerous psycho, Schwarzkopf ate his own young, and Eisenhower was a lot scarier than those jackets made him look. Plus, deep down, the 60’s retreads among you really believe that if it weren’t for soldiers, their blockhead campaign to Give Peace A Chance! would have succeeded in abolishing all war forever by now.
So you hate them. Get in touch with whatever tatterdemalion shreds of masculinity you still frantically try to keep hidden from the withering and pitiless gaze of your hairy-legged, patchouli-sodden wymryn, and just nut up for once, and admit it. We all know it’s true anyway; it’s not as if you’re fooling anybody here, least of all the soldiers themselves.
Just take a deep breath and admit it. You’ll feel a lot better, and the rest of us aren’t going to laugh at you for it any harder than we have been all along.
Update! As mentioned in the original story, it’s a Muslim of Pakistani descent who runs the place, thereby rendering my point above…well, still perfectly true, actually, if not necessarily applicable to the story that inspired the post. No word on the religious or ethnic background of the person responsible for the e-mail, or none that I know of. And apparently, the louse is now issuing threats to all who might find his employee’s cavalier insult to American soldiers offensive:
Discount-Mats.com is registered to a Faisal Khetani who is an American Muslim of Pakistani descent according to Fox News.
Khetani claims that the person responsible for this ignorant affront to a US soldier was fired. In a recent communication with Miss. Kirkland, Khetani said “As I told my local reporters, the individual who made those statements has been held responsible and liable and what they spoke of apo addresses is absolutely true, but the second half was their own personal opinion and not the opinions of the company.”
Khetani also confirmed, though, that he and the members of his company are also against the efforts in Iraq which seems to contradict his first claim that the fired employee’s email didn’t represent the company.
In that same letter, Khetani also threatened Kirkland with unleashing the wrath of “major muslim organizations” on her for her “insults”. He closed by telling Kirkland, “you can be sure that there are million of muslim activists as well that will do something about your foul statements….your statements against Muslims and your direct insults will not go unheard, I assure you.”
Liberals courageously rallying to the support of this poor innocent victim of hateful Islamophobia in 3…2…1…
