I would think veterans would find this even more offensive - jerks like this guy make you all look bad and affirms stereotypes that those who serve only do it because they're not intelligent or educated enough to do anything else.

Oh for crying out loud! "Communist ideology"! Look at the throes of crap and anguish your country is going through presently and tell us all how any of those were caused by the "communist ideology" you McCarthy nuts were all running around screaming the sky is falling, the sky is falling over. You're dealing with the completely home grown result of greed and corruption beyond compare and yet you cling to your past fantasies.

Why in hell do you chickenchits always have to be afraid of some ethereal thing. Oxymoronic in the extreme to foment all that fear then call yourselves brave while stomping all over that which scares the poop out of you.

Buncha morons of which this so-called vet is a stellar example.

Mr. Hafley is not a idiot. He took a oath to defend his country and protect the Constitution. You should appreciate him and defend him.

I have to defend Kentucky. We were stationed there for a few years, we actually encountered less racism there than in California or Ohio. Stereotyping, regardless of who it is targeted at, is a bad practice.

Well, Obama took a very similar oath so you should appreciate and defend him, eh?

Yes, for defending our country, not for being a racist. Also taking an oath isn't a measure of one's intelligence.

Well obviously you saw less racism because it is clear you don't know what racism is or you are playing dumb on the topic.

Which has nothing to do with whether he is an idiot or not.

Everyone has the right to make themselves look like an ass via things they put on their lawn.

This guy did a great job of doing so.
