Why I find these hate the troops post pathetic [View all]

Beyond belief

For people who prattle at times about class solidarity, there is nothing funnier than hating people who in many instances serve, not to serve mom, apple pie and the American way...that is a lie. They serve in order to feed their families and escape a life of poverty, or at least try to.

These kids, and even lifers, are working class people trying to make it. When in the field they care for those besides them, and to go home. When they leave the service many don't make it to the lower middle class, and what they want is the few promises to be kept...nothing much...promises kept.

And the best part is you sent them there, through the political class you elected.

Then again, I should not be too shocked. There s just as much disdain for workers, especially union workers.

If you ever want to see the Glorious revolution (chuckle) some of you dream off, a good start would be to read whichever theory of class solidarity you subscribe to and actually understanding the true meaning of it.

For the record, the true heroes of the Russian Revolution of 1917 were the sailors and lower rank officers of the Battleship Potemkin. Never mind the USSR never quite trusted the Navy and political officers were placed in all units of the armed forces to ensure loyalty. Funny dat, since it was the Army that once again assured the failure of the state and the USSR fell a few decades later. Yup, the army refused to move on the Kremlin in 1991, funny dat.

I tell the story since class solidarity will not get you anywhere until you stop kicking those in the working classes you particularly don't like, whether they are Union workers or military, or just the suffering poor.

This was one thing OWS got, and still gets.

Why they are a threat to the state. Yup, they are still around, though not in the parks.

But damn it, latte drinking hipsters...who talk a good game but have no idea what the terms mean outside a book need to get a clue.

For the record, you are doing the work of the ruling elites, divide and conquer indeed...bravo indeed.

Chuckle.
