Salon writer and obviously unbalanced liberal, David Masciotra, recently wrote a piece that attacked the American tradition of supporting our military and our police as “a frightening cultural streak of nationalism, chauvinism, authoritarianism and totalitarianism.”
Here is just a taste of what Masciotra believes…
Put a man in uniform, preferably a white man, give him a gun, and Americans will worship him. It is a particularly childish trait, of a childlike culture, that insists on anointing all active military members and police officers as “heroes.” The rhetorical sloppiness and intellectual shallowness of affixing such a reverent label to everyone in the military or law enforcement betrays a frightening cultural streak of nationalism, chauvinism, authoritarianism and totalitarianism, but it also makes honest and serious conversations necessary for the maintenance and enhancement of a fragile democracy nearly impossible….
And so goes most of Masciotra’s pages long screed against our history of honoring our veterans and respecting those in authority. The folks at Fox and Friends had the requisite level of disdain and disgust for Masciotra’s article.
