“I fought for you!”
Video: “I fought for you” (is that even real?)
Below is an “emotional” video about the divide between old-time “soldiers” who served in the military, and the kids that might not understand what it all means.
What is this?
I watched this video back during the holidays, and wondered about it for a while. And it is truly bothersome.
While I like the fact that they “unplugged” kids from their mindless entertainment, they only transferred their attention to something equally disturbing: war.
Sure – those surviving Veterans deserve compassion for actually enduring such an atrocity – there is something missing.
To tell children that “You fought for them” seems very disingenuous. America did NOT have foreign invaders. No one was threatening our way of life (or the livelihood of those children or their parents). To say “I fought for YOU!” seems terribly false, doesn’t it?
Those guys “fought” for people that told them who to fight. There was no inherent threat to anyone in the United States of America. We were FINE!
Again, this wasn’t meant as “disrespect” to anyone – just offering a different viewpoint on what “fought” might mean.
You know we’re running into issues when you can’t offer constructive criticism or ask perfectly reasonable questions without the risk of offending people. In fact, you might get violently attacked for having anything resembling a “dissenting” opinion. Look no further than the climate change maniacs for great examples.
