Blah blah Breitbart who cares, we know, but don’t you fancy this headline? The poor sucker who had to update Breitbart.com on Memorial Day, and knew he had to slam Obama for speaking on Memorial Day somehow, settled on “Obama Politicizes Memorial Day” after Obama said that there shouldn’t be wars unless “absolutely necessary.” This is what counts as politicization now: saying the same fucking thing every politician has said on Memorial Day every year since forever. PRO TIP: If you are considering making the argument “Politician politicizes X,” just go stick your head in the unflushed toilet for a few minutes instead. You’ll get more out of it.
Here’s the Reuters write-up that led Breitbart.com to conclude that Obama had “politicized” Memorial Day, the existence of which is more of a “politicization” than anything:
“As commander in chief, I can tell you that sending our troops into harm’s way is the most wrenching decision that I have to make,” Obama said shortly after laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
“I can promise you I will never do so unless it is absolutely necessary and that when we do, we must give our troops a clear mission and the full support of a grateful nation.”
Boo! Send them into harm’s way and don’t even care about it and do it when it’s not in any way necessary , and then don’t tell the troops what to do and give them zero support of a hateful nation, instead. In other words, Keep America Strong, because that’s the way it’s been done for centuries.Related
