Republicans hate our veterans — and no one hates them more than Donald Trump
watch what they do, not what they say
yesterday was Veterans Day and we heard a lot of yadda from the Usual Republican Suspects about how much they loooooove our nation’s veterans.
there they were, tweeting out the same old boilerplate platitudes about honor and duty and sacrifice.
it’s all bullshit. conservatives hate our veterans.
as always, watch what they do, not what they say.
veterans are useful props whenever some dipshit wingnut needs to burnish their patriot cred, but when it comes time to actually supporting our veterans — say, by helping them when they’re in need — it’s a completely different story.
need proof? let’s go to the video tape, from July 29, 2022:
here we have a bunch of Republican Senators fist-bumping. why? because they just blocked a bill that would have expanded healthcare coverage for military veterans exposed to toxic burn pits during their service.
who the fuck celebrates that?
awesome job supporting our veterans, you evil soulless hypocrites.
listen up, shitheads: you send a person into a war zone and tell them to fight for their country, and when they come back injured and permanently disabled, you fucking well take care of them — forever.
it’s basic human decency.
white supremacy’s middle manager, Steve Scalise, tweeted this out yesterday:
“America is the greatest nation in the history of the world because of the bravery and sacrifices of our veterans. Join me in thanking and honoring all those who answered the call to serve our country and defend our freedoms—because without them we'd have neither. #VeteransDay”
Steve, with all due respect, go fuck yourself.
let’s have a look at your stellar record:
you voted against the VA Employee Fairness Act, the Veteran Service Recognition Act, the PACT Act (twice), the Equal Access to Contraception for Veterans Act, and the Ensuring Veterans Smooth Transition Act.
for a guy who claims to honor those who made sacrifices, you have a fucked up way of showing it.
Lauren Boebert took a minute off from playing lap hockey to post this drivel:
“Without our Veterans the American Dream would not be possible. To anyone who has ever worn the uniform, thank you!”
sit down and shut up, you vapid bobblehead.
in your first term in Congress, you made 15 anti-veteran votes. this past spring, you voted to cut funding for the 49,000 veterans in your district by supporting a bill that would gut their health care.
let’s check in on the shouty half-dressed degenerate wrestling coach.
“The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918. Armistice Day. Later known as Veterans Day. God Bless all the brave men and women who served our country. Your sacrifice cannot be thanked enough.”
shove it, Jimmy. you voted against the PACT Act, the Food Security for All Veterans Act, the Veteran Service Recognition Act and the VA Employee Fairness Act.
failed football coach Tommy Tuberville is still out here being a complete bag of shit
ugh. fuck straight off, Tommy.
and don’t even get me started on this diaperload.
Cadet Bone Spurs has spent his entire life finding ways to insult and dishonor our veterans. Biden-Harris HQ assembled this greatest hits video:
here’s what this unhinged maniac posted on his own crappy app:
right back atcha, draft dodger.
hey, remember when you blew off a visit to a war memorial because it was drizzling and you didn’t want your weird hair to get wet? good times, bro, good times.
I want to repost something I wrote last September 24, because of all the shitty episodes regarding Little Donny Fuckface’s callous treatment of our veterans, this one just might be the rock-bottom worst:
meanwhile, another heartwarming story came to light this week, about Donald Trump’s deep and enduring love and devotion for our nation’s wounded combat troops.
At his welcome ceremony at Joint Base Myer–Henderson Hall, across the Potomac River from the capital, Milley gained an early, and disturbing, insight into Trump’s attitude toward soldiers. Milley had chosen a severely wounded Army captain, Luis Avila, to sing “God Bless America.” Avila, who had completed five combat tours, had lost a leg in an IED attack in Afghanistan and had suffered two heart attacks, two strokes, and brain damage as a result of his injuries. To Milley, and to four-star generals across the Army, Avila and his wife, Claudia, represented the heroism, sacrifice, and dignity of wounded soldiers.
It had rained that day, and the ground was soft; at one point Avila’s wheelchair threatened to topple over. Milley’s wife, Hollyanne, ran to help Avila, as did Vice President Mike Pence. After Avila’s performance, Trump walked over to congratulate him, but then said to Milley, within earshot of several witnesses, “Why do you bring people like that here? No one wants to see that, the wounded.” Never let Avila appear in public again, Trump told Milley. (Recently, Milley invited Avila to sing at his retirement ceremony.)
isn’t Trump charming?
“why do you bring people like that here? no one wants to see that, the wounded.”
what a cold-hearted dick.
imagine you’re a severely wounded soldier. after five combat tours, sacrificing yourself for your country — you find yourself in a military hospital, minus one leg, your life permanently altered. you live though months of hell — bedridden, undergoing multiple operations and grueling physical therapy — and when finally you’re discharged, you’re confined to a wheelchair for the rest of your life.
and what does the President of the United States — your Commander in Chief — say about you?
“no one wants to see that, the wounded.”
fuck you, Donald Trump. you piece of shit.
Trump, Tuberville, Scalise, the whole worthless lot of them — the next time any of these grandstanding hypocrites starts going on and on about how much they love the shit out of our veterans, remember: watch what they do, not what they say.
