Chris Hayes: I'm 'Uncomfortable' Calling Fallen Military 'Heroes'


"But it seems to me that we marshal this word in a way that is problematic. But maybe I'm wrong about that."

Oh yeah, you are DEFINATELY wrong about that!

Hayes has obviously never fought ground battles in Iraq or Afghanistan, so he has no earthly idea what a hero is until he sees the true meaning behind why our troops fight to protect our freedom and our sovereignty. Considering that he's a host on MSNBC (which is down to about ten viewers now), I'm not surprised.

Iraq was never a threat to our freedom and sovereignty.

Why is this so hard for flag-wavers to understand?

We call them heroes, sick small minded cowardly pigs call them racists. I guess "agree to disagree" is one way to handle it.

The people who die serving my country are heros as far as I'm concerned. It's the people sending them off to useless wars that I have a problem with.
Thank You!

Everyone is entitled to his or her opinion, this is a free country. But saying you are uncomfortable calling FALLEN military heroes on Memorial day? Wow, that is really low.

Yeah, I am uncomfortable with it.

I think that calling these people 'heros' is not only dishonest- it perpetuates our culture of military/flag-worship where GENUINE criticism against unnecessary war is shouted down as 'unpatriotic'.

In other words, these happy lies we tell each other serve to send MORE of our people to die and kill in unnecessary wars for corporate profits.

It's sick and I won't participate in this quasi-religion.

Who cares what some useless, 3rd rate talking head has to say? Both of the BSNBC viewers maybe, but not anyone with an IQ over 70.
