Ah, Fox News. Is there any topic you can’t bring shame to your nation on?
Currently (according to stories here, here and here), we should apparently be on the lookout for large white pundits approaching our southern border, wishing to invade because they feel we have no army. This, and the rest of the pinheaded discussion on Fox News, was in response to General Andrew Leslie’s comment that our troops will require some rest after the Afghan mission is complete in 2011. Our armed forces are mocked for needing “manicures and pedicures”, along with this gem:
“…the Canadian military wants to take a breather to do some yoga, paint landscapes, run on the beach in gorgeous white Capri pants.”
To characterize this as idiotic, insensitive and ill-informed is not even to scratch the surface of the insult this brings to our Canadian military. We ‘Koggers have friends and relatives in Afghanistan, and Ms. Flash had a high school friend killed in a firefight not long ago. Why idiotic conversations like this are allowed to continue uncensored immediately after the deaths of so many of our best and brightest is beyond me – THIS is why many Canadians dislike, or openly hate, Americans. This vocal, mindless minority spewing ignorance on the airwaves.
How about this: instead of the planned invasion of fat-assed right wing blowhards, let’s hand each of them a rifle and send them to spend some time with our troops. After they’re done shitting themselves they will be entitled to an opinion.
Ladies and gentlemen, for your edification, I present the incriminating footage (try not to eat before watching):
Read the comments on the video over at Youtube, it’s more than worth it – for a change.
Addendum: Aw, He’s sorry. He says it was s’posed to be funny. It wasn’t.
