Left Wing Host: I have a problem calling fallen soldiers heroes

By Bobby Eberle

It's quite pathetic that MSNBC even exists as a network, having no other purpose than to promote a far left agenda. Luckily, their ratings stink, but it doesn't change the fact that their hosts and guests have a far different view of America than most Americans. Chris Hayes is a perfect example. On this Memorial Day weekend, he couldn't even bring himself to use the word "heroes" to describe fallen soliders.

Chris Hayes is someone you may not know. He is an MSNBC host and also the editor-at-large of the Nation, a far left publication. He also symbolizes the liberal elite and those who are out of touch with the lives, concerns, traditions, and values of ordinary Americans.

As reported by Newsbusters.org, during a weekend telecast, Hayes paused... he stumbled... why? Because it was just so hard to use the word hero. According to Hayes, doing so is "rhetorically proximate" to condoning more war.

Here's what he had to say:

He doesn't want to disrespect the memory of anyone who has fallen? He could have fooled me! He sure does a good job in the disrespect column. It's amazing that it is so hard for him to get his words out. Why did MSNBC even bother doing a "Meaning of Memorial Day" segment anyway? Just look at their top banner during the segment. They have a series called "Lean Forward." Barack Obama's new campaign slogan is "Forward." Come on.

As noted in the Huffington Post, Hayes' other panelists had similar reservations about using the "H" word to describe fallen soldiers.

Hayes' fellow panelists expressed similar discomfort. Linguist and columnist John McWhorter said that he would "almost rather not say 'hero" and called the term "manipulative," even if it was unintentionally so.

Hayes then said that, on the flip side, it could be seen as "noble" to join the military. "This is voluntary," he said, adding that, though a "liberal caricature" like himself would not understand "submitting so totally to what the electorate or people in power are going to decide about using your body," he saw valor in it.

The Nation's Liliana Segura then chimed in, saying that "hero" is often used to paint wars in a "righteous" way.

"These wars in Iraq and Afghanistan ... aren't righteous wars," she said. "We can't be so afraid of criticizing a policy."

Hayes has since issued an apology, saying, "I don't think I lived up to the standards of rigor, respect and empathy for those affected by the issues we discuss that I've set for myself."

These people just don't get it. Sure, one can disagree with an administration's policy. One can believe that we shouldn't be going to war in a particular place. Memorial Day is NOT about that. It's not about policy or location or timing or agenda. It is about the men and women who serve... who put it all on the line... and who give the ultimate sacrifice.

If someone has to stutter or stammer or has a problem understanding that concept, then he or she is the one with the problem. The person fighting to protect your rights to be an absolute idiot is the hero.

      Lizzie you stole my thunder…Metrosexual was exactly what I was going to call him as well. No wonder MSNBC has hardly any viewers. They have stepped so far away from the mainstream beliefs of a majority of the American people. He has his freedom of speech paid for by the blood of Patriots. I have the freedom to change the channel and not watch this left wing drivel.

      Deborah21 – he would still be the ant-military wimp he is now. In Vietnam, we had reporters with an agenda, and no matter what happened they reported it wrong.

      Keep in mind, in combat bodies sometimes get mangled. After one such battle, a female reporter accompanied officers surveying the carnage suffered by NVA/VC attackers. She reported the American soldiers were desecrating NVA/VC bodies. Never mind that the NVA and VC frequently mangled American and South Vietnamese bodies – that NEVER got reported. Never mind those mangled enemy bodies got that way due to our defensive fires when THEY attacked us. Those reporters had their anti-war agenda.

      And don’t forget Walter Kronkite. Never mind that Americans and ARVIN soldiers kicked butt and won every major battle during TET, Kronkite had an anti-war agenda so he pronounced the “war was lost”.

      True facts just get in the way when reporters have their anti-war agenda.

      @ davnkatz: Re Cronkite, to be fair, day after day, week in and month out for many, many years Cronkite reported on the Vietnam war with a kind of somber neutrality.

      Only after the North VNese were defeated/repelled in the wholesale Tet Offensives of 1968 (of which I was in Hue City) did he began to question the – way – the war was being prosecuted (politically instead of by military advantage).

      But even then it was another few years before he told his viewers, ” . . . I can no longer support the war effort in Vietnam.” (I saw this broadcast.).

      Saying, “The war is lost?” Goes to when he said it. If he said that in mid to late April 1975, then he was only stating the obvious.

      But never ONCE did I hear him denigrate, malign or even obliquely slander the American soldier or their efforts.

      Meanwhile, ABC and NBC had long since stopped being so patient with the war effort, or kind to the soldiers,

      They have a problem calling fallen soldiers heroes but NO PROBLEM calling fallen politicians like Bill Clinton, John Edwards, Barney Frank and Anthony Weiner heroes? Just how low has this Democrat party sunk? Just watch them raise Obama and Pelosi up on their Progressive pedestal of Socialist Hero worship after these Liberal Democrats redistribute to the world’s poor and the Democrat Party rich,,,,all the American Prosperity Blood and Treasure that our men in uniform have spent and spilled their Blood for to protect and secure a future for America’s future generations which they cast aside like so much America seed corn thrown on the infertile ground of their failed ideology. They are not the Party of Heroes but Neros who continues to fiddle while the American Republic burns down aroound them and us.

      Actually, I believe in truth in advertising, and it doesn’t get any clearer than what came out of Chris Hayes’ mouth.

      However, I must say that I am disappointed in John McWhorter’s agreement since I have found him to be very solid in his views.

      This video needs to be archived, just like Chris Matthew’s comment about the “thrill up [his] leg” when B.O. was inaugurated.

      These are the moments that we cherish.

It does provide different prospectives so that we all may use what God has given us to determine a proper coarse.

    In complete candidness, I can somewhat understand why some see the Iraq war as unjust.
    The Bush admin did not conduct a perfect, straightforward campaign to illustrate the worthiness in removing Hussein from power. I still have no idea why they chose to use the nuclear weapons “intel” when there was better information indicating biological threats, plus the Iraqi stockpiles of chem warheads.
    Bio weapons can be created cheaper and under the radar easier than nuclear programs can and instruments were found in Iraq that can only be used in the weaponizing of biological cultures. But nothing was imminent.
    Either way, my only beef with the Iraq war was it’s timing, especially when Bush had a great chance for a second term which would buy us more time to finish Afghanistan and to prepare units for Iraq. Two years could have been very helpful. I would like to add that I’m aware that you cannot always choose when warfare starts, but do feel, and many I served with agree, we had some time.
    But for anyone to suggest that the Afghan war is unjust is either a moron who slept through September of 2001 or an enemy of the state. There cannot seriously be a third option. Pacifists in my opinion are only against violence when their side is weak, but look out when they are optimally strong.

      Yet more than eighty (80) tonnes of Yellowcake Uranium were located in a bunker in Iraq. They hadn’t been processed for use in weapons, and we didn’t hear about it until the material had already been shipped to a reprocessing facility in Canada, for security purposes.

      The crazy part, for me, is that the only article where I read about this was on MSNBC’s site.

      You are correct, there was yellowcake found at the Al Tuwaitha facility which was left over from the Gulf war. It was not in any state to be used in a nuclear weapon though. What did worry me was the biological residue left at some facilities. For the life of me, I cannot understand why the Bush admin. did not go public with these findings.

      Response to Comment by Bayushi Zero:

      I read that it was hundreds of tons of Yellowcake and that the US and Iraq governments were arguing over ownership before it was sold to Ontario Public Power. Both articles appeared in the NYT. The interesting aspect of it was that Scott Libby and VP Cheney were both being crucified in the MSM for questioning the CIA-based conclusions of a couple of obviously biased Dems who claimed Saddam wasn’t buying Yellowcake in Nigeria. He certainly bought it somewhere and Cheney would have been derelict in his duties as VP if he hadn’t asked Libby to investigate. The action that GWB didn’t do, but probably should have done was cleaned house at the CIA and any other government agency staffed by employees who were loyal to their party and not to our nation.

      Prior to VP Gore shutting down the Bureau of Mines, all of that information would have been available to everyone, including congress people, in a publication called the Minerals Yearbook. This agency was also charged with research in improving mine safety and improvements in mining and mineral extraction. When all this Yellowcake mess occurred, I finally realized the reason the USBM was eliminated. It listed facts on import and export of resources and some of our politicians would prefer not to have such information easily available to everyone. I understand it was an international joke that some of the agencies employees were so good that when Stalin’s government published info on Soviet resources that were purposely false they’d correct them and that some of the Russian scientists would laugh over it.

      As we’ve all discovered, just ignore the opinion articles and read those backpage articles that have black and white facts that are without comment and remember those small slips like the one by a British journalist who discovered in official Irag documents that Saddam had paid an MP a million pounds to oppose any action in Iraq. If he was paying politicians for their support you know some journalists, editors and publishers were also being paid.

They are the problem, they are the parasites of any reasonable and stable civil order. They and their criminal allies are the ones who want to remold society into their perverted and twisted image making everything that is wrong, right. They are the supreme hypocrits and charlatans. They would tell the masses that “the world owes you a living” knowing full well this is an absolute lie. They promote class warfare with one mission in mind, CONTROL. Therefore in my mind, they are like a living cancer in what was once a healthy body and their cancer infected cells are racing to take over the entire body and make it into some diseased entity. This then, is Chris Hayes and company.

By the time I was his age, I had spent four years in the Navy aboard Nuke Submarines, followed by breaking through 20 foot surf heading out to save lives during the first two tours in the Coast Guard. What does that young punk know about anything.

    Just wanted to say that I’m a Democrat. I served for 20 years in the US Navy. My Dad’s a Democrat, he served in the US Army from 1939 to 1945 as an Infantry man under Patton and Bradley. I had five uncles who served in WWII in the Army, Navy and Marine Corps, all were Democrats. I have relatives, Democrats, who served in Viet-Nam. I served during the first Gulf War.

    We all served so that everyone has the right to express their views whether we agree with them or not.

    I am always willing to discuss any issue in a normal manner. I don’t like being called anti-american because my views differ from yours. Politics is not a religion, it is a forum where different ideas are expressed and a compromise is obtained.

    I urge everyone to look at both sides of any issue and to not consider politics as a win or loose ideology. In Nazi Germany, you had to accept the Nazi agenda or accept the consequences.

    Don’t let our country become so divided that we can’t accept the other side’s views or call them un-American.

    Just to let you know, I think of all veterans, fallen or not, as heroes. Simply because they went. It took courage and more importantly, self sacrafice. Not all of us in the Military had the same views, but we put those aside and all worked together to get the job done.

    Just my two cents.

      My family were first generation immigrants from western Europe and my father was a coal miner. Our families were considered minorities in our small town because of being immigrant kids and Catholics in a heavy Protesant community. However, our families were so happy to be in America that we wanted to do our part and I lost uncles and relatives in WWII and other wars, and I myself am a veteran. We were Democrats in those days and I voted for Eisenhower, JFK, and candidates of both parties. The differences between Dems and GOP in my younger days were not anywhere as marked as today as we were all patriotic Americans and proud of it.

      Today, most of my family are Republicans and continue to embrace conservative life values and typically vote Republican and are outraged that an inexperienced, radical socialist like Barack Obama was elected President of our great country. What is strange about the political parties is how much the Democratic party has changed over the last 30 years. It is no longer my family’s Democratic party in that it has moved so far left toward socialism and has embraced liberalism beyond recognition. It is this radical element that has taken over the party that finally pushed me away. This radical element are socialists that are anti-God, unpatriotic Americans in name only, and believe that the world revolves around a huge central government acting in the role of our personal overseer which some call a “nanny state” government. This is an unAmerican ideology.

      You need to consider changing political party affiliation.

      Don’t let our country become so divided that we can’t accept the other side’s views or call them un-American.”

      I, too, was raised Democrat in a Democrat family. However, JFK started my eyes opening. LBJ finished opening my eyes. Cahtah FORCED me to see what the Democrat Party was becoming, and I could no longer call myself a Democrat.

      The problem is so many like you tightly closed their eyes and refused to see whaat was happening to America under so-called Democrats (actually socialists and communists misusing the name). I’ll bet you vote a straight ticket no matter who is on it. Correct?

      Surely you MUST be aware that Obama and the currecnt administration is behaving exactly as Hitler and the Nazis did. If you CANNOT see that, or if you don’t believe it, or if you just wish the rest of us would forget it, then your argument of
      “Don’t let our country become so divided that we can’t accept the other side’s views or call them un-American” is nothing more than subterfuge.

      I see your point. However, keep in mind one thing. People like Chris Hayes and his gang of mindless and useful idiots would deny you the very right to express your opinion if they were in control by whatever means….political, economic, social or whatever. You would be SILENCED. They would not tolerate any other thought outside of their own perverted realm of how they see things. Obama is obsessed with power and even he is a useful idiot of Soros et al who want to change Americans into a enslaved society with them (Soros and his gang of criminals) as the “ruling elite.” While you may have a sense of fair play and justice, these people do not. “Power corrupts,” observed Lord Acton, and “absolute power, absolutely!” Obama and his henchmen are obsessed with power; Obama’s supporters are engulfed in total ignorance.

    As the mother of an active duty soldier, this piss-ant just makes me want to puke. My son, and the sons and daughters of many other mothers and fathers VOLUNTEERED to put their bodies, sanity and lives on the line so cowards like Hayes can sit safely in their cushy chairs and pontificate idiotic drivel out of their stupid mouths. They know nothing, they understand nothing about what it means to be a hero. Hayes isn’t fit to wipe the butts of our brave sons and daughters – our HEROES!

    The exagerated sense of self worth that some of these leftist pansies exhibit, just boggles the mind. Can you imagine letting the fact that you sometimes work in front of a TV camera, convince you that you are qualified to be the arbiter of who is a hero and who is not? I guess it’s true- Liberalism is a mental illness.

    I don’t have the final call on what makes a hero, but I can tell you who doesn’t qualify for the title. Anyone who would never even consider signing a multi year portion of their life away, to defend the country they love, possibly putting themselfs in harm’s way in the process, all the while believing that they have a moral basis to make judgements about those who choose to do so, that’s who! Not even their own mother can respect them.

    BTW, I cut and pasted this same comment over to the Huffpost site after the article about Chris Hayes making his non-apology apology for saying what he did. It disapeared within seconds.

    What makes this even worse is that this unpatriotic and disrespectful spoiled brat was hired by executives at MSNBC who hired Chris Mathews and Rachel Maddow, who are both bleeding heart socialiist liberals who lick Obama’s boots.

    When our mainstream media is unafraid to blatantly show their political bias and unAmerican attitude, you know that the country is in trouble. And when you see how hard they are working to shutdown the FOX network and conservative talk radio then it gets even scarier.

    The leftist radical element in our country has taken over the Democratic party, has infiltrated and gained control of much of our public media (TV, Movie Industry, Newspaper, and radio), has locked arms with the national labor union organizations, and has duped the huge minority voting blocks into thinking they are there to provide for them. They have managed to take control of much of the judicial appointments by using their union friends and their campaign contributions to elect and appoint politicians to help advance their socialist agenda. President Obama is their “figurehead” who not only embraces their radical views, he proudly wrote a book about it (Dreams from My Father) where he narrates how he came to be the radical socialist/Marxist that he is as he has declared war on our capitalist system.

    The national election this year will set the direction of our country. If you vote for Obama you are supporting the transformation of the greatest country in the history of the world into just another “me too” socialist country whose leaders will gladly redistribute our natural wealth and exceptional wherewithal to the rest of the globe. The American “Dream” concept will no longer exist as the planned destruction of both the will and the incentives that are the essence for the “land of opportunity” will be methodically removed.

    Chris Hayes’ wife works as Associate Council for Obama so what can you expect. That’s fair and balanced coverage for you. The far left liberal elites respect nobody except those that hate America. If America is sooo bad, why are these liberals still here?

    Why is MSNBC still licensed? After the deliberate Zimmerman edit, they should be removed from the airways. I will never watch anything from that leftist channel.

    Hayes totally nauseates me with his disgusting, cowardly way of communicating. He was downright having to choke the words out of his mouth because he knew he was speaking shameless filth! The audacity of calling himself an American when he is so completely ungrateful to the very people that make his freedoms possible! What an ingrate weenie! Fools like him should spend a year in a Marxist country, living like the common people do, and then let’s see how quickly he runs back to the US and kisses the ground!

    All the negative adjectives used here to describe the leftists, apply.They deserve ridicule and rancor from everyone. But the larger story lies in the openness and brazen attitudes these people have no problem expressing. Disdain for the country; disrespect for the military, and no decency to pay respect to people that put their lives on the line for their country.It shows how far we as a nation have been brought down by liberal thoughts and actions. It must stop! The general population, while not agreeing with the MSNBC-types, allow this weakening of the US by complacency.It can and has to stop by: Defeating Obama, and the citizens display of outrage at the left’s tactics, or we sink!

      biloak71 – you mentioned these idiots “DIsdain the country, have disrespect the military, and no decency to pay respect to people that put their lives on the line”.

      On the other side of the coin, people who served in the military – peacetime or wartime – do not have that problem, regardless of their political affiliation. My brother is a staunch democrat, and he has no difficulty is showing respect for the military, the flag, and those who sacrificed for America. I might add, he served in the navey in South Pacific in WWII.

      I personally believe that every young man – and woman – should be required to serve at least two years – in uniform or some other area.

      Although there are some exceptions, generally those people who have served have no disability in respecting those who fought for freedom. Also, it is generally those who NEVER served anything except their own desires are the most prominent disrespectors.

    Having served as A Marine for 6 years, I and my peers never seen ourselves as heroes. But I do take issue when anyone gets the perk of a TV camera making such idiotic comments who never wore the uniform.

    Here is the definition of hero-
    2. a person who, in the opinion of others, has heroic qualities or has performed a heroic act and is regarded as a model or ideal: He was a local hero when he saved the drowning child.

    I would question a “hero” who gets payed for what he or she does. In my opinion you have chosen your route, and part of what comes along with that is the risk that you may end up dying, is it honorable maybe, are they a hero maybe, but you are getting payed for it, and benefits come along with that, you had the choice as well, and so my hero would be those who challenged the ideals of others and have made changes to not only help them, but people after them. Also for me those who served during WWII and before I would comsider them heroes for the fact that they had no choice of what to do, and just had to do it. Although once again theses people got paid for what they did, so it is still a bit questionable.

      What I mean by they are getting paid is that they are doing a job, which means they must do their job to get paid, just like everyone else.
