Dayum! Vicious but very on point.

Thoughts

On June 6th, 1944, 6,420 troops in the U.S. 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions jumped behind enemy lines with the target of liberating the town of Sainte-Mère-Église, in northwestern France. Bad weather and much heavier than predicted German anti-aircraft fire, had scattered the troops over 40 square miles. Despite heavy casualties and most paratroopers missing their drop zones entirely, they endured, gathered their strengths, pushed forward, and achieved their objective. Because that’s what Heroes do.

What heroes don’t do is lie to the American people about the criminal activity of the President of the United States and obstruct congressional investigations at every turn.

Everyone mentioned in this story took an oath to defend the United States from all threats foreign and domestic, but only the brave soldiers of WWII actually took it seriously.

People need to stop making insane comparisons to great heroic feats in the face of evil; especially when those people are nothing more than glorified paper pushers who couldn’t even be bothered to serve a day of military service in their lives.

I’ve heard that Attorney General William Barr didn’t even register for selective services, an offence that might actually invalidate him from even serving in government in the first place. But I’m sure he got a waiver on that one, because that’s how government rolls when you got connections.
