A middle finger at the troops
I have no sympathy for the left and don’t want to hear about how they “support the troops”.
Via “This Ain’t Hell”:
“Military recruits are a little less warm and friendly to begin with and the military experience seems to reinforce this–as after service, men score even lower on agreeableness when compared to individuals who did not go into the military,” lead author Dr. Joshua J. Jackson, an assistant professor of psychology at the university, said in a written statement. “Interestingly, this influence appears to linger long after the soldier has re-entered the workforce or returned to college.”
—Military Service Does Number On Vets’ Minds, Study Suggests

Coupled with the troop hate on Wired, the Occupy movement’s hatred of the military, Jews and America, I’m convinced that the left wants this country to fail.
After Vietnam, the Left and the media latched onto the “psycho vet” meme. Every vet went to war and came back a monster. Only reality didn’t get the memo.
First, let’s get one thing out of the way right now — PTSD is real, mental illness is a serious issue that should never be downplayed, and even one suicide is a tragedy. No one here is trying to say otherwise. But let’s take a look at what doctors, not Hollywood, say about PTSD: The most common symptoms are disturbed sleep, memory problems and depression, not “violent rampages against the uncaring system that created you.”

When a humor website beats you, your argument is invalid.
All this is is the left prepping for the 2012 elections, media and cuts to the military. They hate the troops and need to paint vets as disturbed. Vets are running for office, vets are treated with respect. In Hollywood, vets hate the military and are angry at “the system”. When they’re not on a rampage, they’re hippies or shell-shocked addicts. Unless the plot calls for the psycho vet to have a small arsenal stashed in his closet. Most of the vets the left pimps out are fakes. Most of the atrocities they talk about occurred in the movies.
When the current occupant of the White House loses, they’ll bash America, the governemnt and especially veterans. Same as the 70’s and 80’s. No help for the veterans the left claims to love. Absolutely no help for the families of veterans. Just scorn and mockery disguised as “research” or “fiction”.
