American Girl Doesn`t Support American Troops

Submitted by: kitteh9lives 6 years ago in Misc

She states that soldiers are either dumb or evil serial killers and they don"t protect our freedoms. Agree or disagree?

I think that she makes too many generalization. I think she has good points, however there are going to be different kinds of people in the military. There are still good soldiers and there are the same kinds of bastards on their side. And she has no clue what they`re doing, none of us do. It severely lacks the tact needed to sway anyones` opinion, so I think its pointless, presumptuous and she harps on the same 3 or 4 points.

You know what I hate more than what she said? Sloganeering bull crap lines that are unsubstantiated and unprovable. "The troops" are not fighting for my freedom (or hers, or yours). I`m sure there is a reason but our freedoms aren`t one of them. Never buy the sound bites of a politician.

The worst thing you can do in a case like this is to try and argue with those who are like minded with this girl.

The level of misunderstanding and misinformation that pervades this video, and the posts of some of the forum folk here is so vast, that to properly respond would be futile. If a person can be convinced that this is a legitimate opinion based on logic and truth, then you will not be able to "correct" their opinions.

The only thing to do is be thankful that this is a very vocal minority, and like minded individuals will likely never ever be in a position to do harm to the rest of our society with their beliefs.

Wow. I just got back from overseas after being away from my family for 15 months. I didn`t care that nobody clapped or cheered for me when I got home, I was so happy to see my family, it didn`t matter. I hate that this woman is generalizing all troops as "dumb, evil, morally corrupt serial killers." That`s like walking into an elementary school that is majority black and telling all of the children that they will all grow up to be thieving, murdering rapists. People like her make me sad that troops are giving up their lives and personal freedoms to do a job that no one else will do, and last I checked, being in the military is being employed by the government and, therefore, constitutes a "real job." I support the right to be able to state your opinions, but why not put your compelling arguments toward a cause that is much more valid? Unfortunately, war will always be waged somewhere, so troops are necessary, but it doesn`t make them "evil" for doing

i agree they do not protect our freedoms, seeing as said freedoms are being taken from right under us everyday, or worse given away gladly by the ignorant population.

troops are wasting their time defending what liberal idiots give away freely.

I really don`t even know where to begin in responding to this video or the posts. First off I would like to challenge everyone without first hand knowledge of the Armed Forces to go visit a base or some troops before positing anything!

I can`t believe some of the things I`m seeing posted - `most troops have never even touched a weapon` All soldiers receive weapons training.

-the three types of people to join the military? They`re absurd! Sure the military has those 3 types, but it also has a lot of good people too.

-Does she assume that all soldiers are infantry or combat arms? What about the clerks, cooks, doctors etc?

And I would really love for her to post the sources of her statistics. Really hope it wasn`t wikipedia.

"She is absolutely right about the three type of people in the military."

If you believe that you are as stupid as she is or as stupid as someone who claims the military is made up of saints. I will also point out, again, that most Iraqi casualties were caused by other Iraqis. Refer to my previous post for the link. Most people in the military have never even touched a weapon, let alone killed anybody. But please, don`t let facts stand in the way of making your idiotic arguments.

Now to all those who are fine Muslims. That rant is not to demean your religion. It`s targeted at the f*ck`s of your religion that distort your prophets words and intertwine such draconian interpretation. making it miserable for all good Muslims. Just like all the radical Christian twats who do the same like Westboro or Aryan Nazi`s etc...

Meanwhile, you`ve got airheads talking about how they support troops but not the war. Get over yourself hippy lib`s. The troops all chose to do the job. They knew full well they were going in because they were too dumb for anything else, they are comfortable with the idea of killing strangers, or they were too spineless to find a profession in life that didn`t conflict with their morals. All that said, you support the troops, you support what we all knew we were going over there to do. War. And not some grand beautiful war where we`re fighting to protect our younger sister`s from rape and pillage. It`s a corporate war. Has been for fifty odd years now.

Freaking retarded twats who think America is evil needs a freaking cracks to the head. it`s not a perfect country but get a grip. No one will ever have peace as long as some twats with a radical religious agenda hang around and want to rule the world.

I for one thanks the guys for having the guts to stand up to punks.

So much ridiculous admiration for soldiers and hate for those who think serving in american wars is dumb. Best part is most, if not all, of you guys with your unadulterated love for the military have never actually been in or married anyone in the military.

She is absolutely right about the three type of people in the military. Her figures on iraqi`s killed and civies killed overall aren`t idea`s she just came up with. They`re commonly (Even if not completely accurate) used figures. She IS wrong about soldiers having to assume the enemy is a lesser human, but that`s only because you have to be capable of killing someone before you can make that deduction.

I know let`s just freaking forget about it all. Let`s just cave in to some tribal thugs who have distorted Mohammad`s words with their tribal version to suit their need to control the rest of the world. Let`s just make sure all us infidels are sub servant to our new overlords. Making all those who worship different religions and especially atheists conform to the interpretation of the Koran.

Freak it you dumb twats who resent America. Let`s especially start with Europe. All women will have to wear a burka and fully clothe with no make-up. You look or even talk to a single man with out the family head chaperoning. Then you die. You dumb ass men even look or talk to a girl off with yours. How about when a women gets raped. Forget about speaking in your defense and a man must find 5 witnesses to testify on your behalf otherwise your guilty of adultery and are stoned. Sounds sweet huh?

So Yeah America lay down your arms and surrender to the punks of Islam.

as a son of an retired us soldier I seriously want to kill this bitch. I dont think supporting the troops equates to supporting mass murderers. It is more like "gosh I hope my dad survives another day in the desert. Support the troops!" I generally disapprove of most American wars, however I hope that every single one of the soldiers make it out of the war safely. That bitch needs to take a look at the pure relief of the families of deployed soldiers when they come back home. however I think shes putiing up an act, so who cares

@Luniz82, you made a statement and I don`t see anywhere that you qualified it as your opinion. So it sounds like you are making up facts. Also, just so you know, she did not make up the fact that 90% of casualties are civilian. The Council of the European Union said it in December 2003. Here is the link for ya!

I know a the guy who used to tie firecrackers to the tails of small animals and lied about drug use in order to enlist in the army. Think about that that when you thank a random stranger for his or her service. My husband serves too, so it`s not like I hate the military, but it`s full of idiots, racists, wife-beaters, and even the occasional murderer.

She`s not "disillusioned" she`s speaking her mind. Do the people criticizing her support the troops? Or do you just say you support the troops and go about your everyday lives feeling good about yourselves? Other than paying your taxes or enlisting there`s not a whole lot more you can do. Right now we`re being told Grandma`s medicare and social security are bankrupting the country but evidently, we can afford to wage war on a whim. We have so much vested in war, that a world without war could be economically devastating to us. I don`t appreciate losing the little pieces of freedom I had before 9/11. The new normal is morally offensive and downright unconstitutional. Our leaders (no matter who they are) manipulate the masses to make their twisted reality seem sane. And it all comes at the cost of our constitution and our freedoms.

I support the troops with my taxes. Nothing more.

How enlightened she must think she is. The world needs war in order to keep peace. Granted, many wars have been unnecessary but one must realize that a war-less "La-la land" will never exist. There will always be individuals in the military who give it a bad name but to say that all American military personnel are stupid or out for blood lust is an incredibly idiotic statement.

But I do think this war is stupid. As far as I know it`s about oil, and other countries trying to change how some other countries are run. Sure I don`t agree with the way they run it and some of their laws, but I don`t think we are in a place to try and change them. Let the citizens riot on their own if they want change.
My brother is in the military (medical technician) and my father was in the air force, so I can`t say that I don`t support the troops.

"Why would she?"

50 to 1 odds. Yes, she is very likely pmsing at the time she wrote out this speech. Yes, she probably has a brother who her parents love more than her, and that brother is probably a marine. Yes, what she has to say about how she feels won`t make a lick of difference to anyone who doesn`t know her personally. All of that said, no matter how many times it`s said here, she really isn`t an idiot. Honestly, if I didn`t know better, I`d say she`s a vet herself.

@madest, "fat and happy" is a term describing someone (or a culture) that is free of real worry.

The military, whether you believe (or like) it or not, made it possible for people like her to live in this state. Her freedom to make these ignorant generalizations about the people in the military did not come about naturally.

She doesn`t like the wars; fine. But the people who fight? What`d they do? Their jobs? Following orders?

Again, in my opinion, she`s the end product of the very people she hates. The modern version of the Summer of Love hippies who decried soldiers as "baby killers" and spat upon them when they returned. I give her the same respect I offer them; less than none.

I do. I admire anyone who worked to complete a course of education that allows them to work in a specialized field, solving problems that require expertise.

I also admire good parents for raising children well. It can be a hard job and I applaud them.

I also admire servicemen and women for placing themselves in danger in order to protect our national interests as ultimately determined by the commander-in-chief, who I voted for and whose decisions I respect even if I disagree with them.

So, why would you think that someone who applauds the military wouldn`t also applaud for you being an engineer, or applaud anyone who helps society for a job well done?

Personally, I don`t feel remotely sorry for the people I killed, meanwhile, lets say you`re not a part of this camp that joined "because I can accept violence is a part of my nature." In most cases you are most certainly a part of her other two camps. Idiotic patriots and/or low income "only way out"er`s who feel bad about what they have to do to prosper.

I have no reason to judge and complain about people in the military, as she seems to, but her complaints are far from ignorant.

I`m a vet. The "90% civies/1m iraqi civies." is debatable, but aside from that, the only thing she is really wrong about is the "We have to assume muslims are lesser humans to be in the military." That`s just flat out not true, as she even points out. "Serial killer" is a bit strong, but I, and many others I knew/know, simply don`t put a high value on human life. I`m a staunch defender of human rights, and by all means, if I`m trying to kill you, I hope you know how to fight back, but again, I knew/know plenty of people, myself included, who could easily kill a child and get over it in a week.

the saddest part is that you can`t see your opinion is arguably more extreme and dangerous than the opinion you criticised.

I don`t believe that I said that she shouldn`t be allowed to vote... I just said it was SAD that she can because of her OBVIOUS ignorance... its also SAD that the cast of jersey shore can vote too. Its SAD that people that ARE ignorant, VOTE. Jump back off your high horse now and rejoin the discussion.

@plastinum- you’re the one that said you come from a long line...of screwups... Your limited experience and perception of reality does not constitute facts nor bear any semblance of quantified argument. I didn`t give up anything- didn`t say I did, nor did I say I was a superhero. I served, and as I said ask no one for thanks or approval. So before making generalities and arbitrary assumptions about people you don’t know why don’t you go meditate, then go ask your daddy for a hug because you obviously have anger issues.

I agree with her to a degree. The military is 100% voluntary. Everyone involved in the wars signed up or opted to stay in after it has become clear that we are doing more harm to our freedom and safety. I disagree with her insulting generalities about the motives of the people who started the wars as well as the people who join the military.

She has missed the point about what "supporting the troops" actually means. We support the troops so that they can effectively execute the job all Americans are responsible for them having. We elect, and re-elect those who started the wars and those who continue them. We placed this demand upon the military. We have the ability to rid ourselves of the war mongering politicians.

I don`t know anyone who support the troops that commit war crimes. She doesn`t understand it, but her beef is not with the troops, it is with the majority of American voters.

Yes, she has a right to say this.

The sad thing is that the right she is exercising is being protected, and enforced, by the very people she is insulting.

If someone were to take that right away from her, she`d be the first one yelling for those very soldiers to fight for her right to make an idiot of herself.

And she`s too stupid to see the irony in that.

Now, if she were SERIOUS in her convictions, she would divest herself of the rights protected by the `evil soldiers`.

But, she`s just a liberal idiot. The same type person who will call an officer of the law a `Pig`, but the minute someone puts a scratch on her volvo she`ll be dialing 911 for thier protection.

She`s not even a `useful` idiot.

However, if we were in a time of crisis, and we had thousands drafted.. I`d support them, for serving a duty they didn`t sign up for.. But the bottom line is, soldiers now a day choose to be soldiers. It`s your job to risk your life, and you will receive no praise from me.

it`s pretty true. everyone who says "thanks for defending our freedoms" just hasn`t spent a single thought on the subject. in order to defend the freedoms, there has to be someone to threaten them first. if there`s no threat, then they can`t be protected and then there is also no NEED for protection. and right now, there is not threat! none! so the whole argument of defending freedoms immediately becomes invalid! also she is right about the rest. and the american nationalism really does piss me of quite a lot. especially since the anonymity of the internet pretty much makes many americans think they can just rant about their superiority all the time.

I agree. Also, anyone I know that has ever been in military is always the most borderline psycho reject type of person...people usually join the army because they can`t do anything else or because they are psycho and want to kill things...which they do. They kill many innocent people and get away with it, then they come home with PTDS and become crazy violent cops.

While I respect her rights to voice her opinions I could not disagree more, and think it she is repulsive. Do not get me wrong I disagree with the war, and the costly distribution of our troops across the world. However, the men that sign up, and risk their lives really should be thanked. Her generalization may represent a small portion of the military, but those with such disturbances are generally not allowed to serve. Her last comment about money not being an excuse really pissed me off. She seems to be a rich girl who thinks everyone can always get money somehow, but they can`t. When the military pays for your college education it provides an opportunity many can not otherwise have. One of my friends for example was a foster child, who was able to get a education and career from his service.

Just seems to be a video to get a rise out of people, hope it does go viral and she can`t get a job....and has to join the military :-P.

The summary for this made her sound stupider than she actually was. She did make a few points...

I realized the irony yesterday when they thanked the veterans for "protecting our freedom." The veterans were from Vietnam or Iraq... I definitely support the troops from Vietnam, especially those who were drafted against their will. As for Iraq... I can`t make a decision on whether or not it`s really a good thing that we went in there.

I personally would never join the military; since I`m opposed to any kind of violence. Even if the draft came back, i`d be going to Canada. But I do have family and friends in the military, so I wouldn`t call them "dumb serial killers." Nothing is that simple.

Simply put, If you do not stand behind our troops, feel free to stand in front of them.

Shes right, our troops are not protecting her freedom to bitch about them. Hey next time she bitches maybe we can treat her like shes a Saudi and we could kill her family, rape her in public then stone her for promiscuous acts because she spoke against the government.

or she can thank our troops for protecting her piehole.

she can shove it. So glad she thinks I`m a serial killer. Whelp, I did join the Army so that freaks like this can express their opinions, so carry on.

Just make sure you go to the "immediate surrender" line should war ever come to our soil, ok? Thanks.

Attention whore.

Everybody is entitled to their own opinions and that is what makes our country a great place to live. I won`t go as far as to say I don`t support the troops but in a time where our economy is strained and stretched to almost a breaking point and we have our military forces spread across the globe blowing a good part of our tax dollars. Do we know why we are still there and if we are there how much of a benefit is it really to us in relation of the tax dollars spent for us to be there? Other countries need to learn to stand up for themselves. In such hard times maybe it is best we pull the reins back on our global conquest and focus on our immediate domestic problems. Congress cannot agree on a budget. If they don`t increase the debt ceiling the government will for sure default on their debt payment and the financial rating industries are threatening to decrease our debt rating from AAA. I don`t think people know how serious this is and something is going to have to give.

@Rogueknight-So I suppose you altruistically gave up your own dreams and career goals to go save us from evil because it was the right thing to do and had nothing to do with any ulterior motives...wow you are a superhero! I take back all I said before and grovel at your feet...may I have your autograph..I salute you!....not

@RogueKnight...not just screwups but killers, drug addicts and psychos too...and they all became that way AFTER enlisting thank you...See I have had the priveledge of living abroad and seeing how American troops overseas act...it`s not patriotic nor a good image to portray to the rest of the world. So I should kiss the ass of people who chose to do the job they do NOT because they want to save the world but because it was a viable career choice...I think instead of kissing soldiers asses we should be clapping for teachers and the everyday people who contribute good to society..not death and warmongering.

She could have easily shortened this to 2 or 3 minutes. Too much "uhhhh....uuuhhhhh", reading notes, and anxious laughter.

The military attracts all types. A lot of people join because it is one of the few places left where the word `honor` still has meaning and value. She obviously doesn`t understand that.

These questions are drating stupid. American soldiers invading another country obviously aren`t protecting American freedoms but they aren`t serial killers. You can support the troops but protest the war if you want, the soldiers don`t run the war.

If anything, get mad at the government for sending our poor out. Most people I know that have gone on to the military have done so because it is the best economically sound choice for them at that moment. Is that the best reason to fight for something you don`t know much about? No, but it sure as hell beats flipping burgers. Especially if you got a child, or one is on the way. (Let`s face it, there is a WIDE variety of these situations going on for young men that are 18-21) You can not judge those people the same as the handful of rapists and those that joined just to kill stuff. Out there, a FIVE YEAR OLD WILL KILL YOU. She only brings up a handful of cases in which the actions were extreme. Other than that it`s the same `war is murder` tune. If you don`t support the military turn to government though, not god damned youtube. At the very least, support your friends` (who have joined the military) friends and families.

Hate to break it to you lady but most Iraqis have been killed by other Iraqis: Here

Also it was the MILITARY that argued AGAINST invading Iraq, but they were overruled by Rumsfeld and his faction. (Read Fiasco).

She talks about murder, that happens. But she doesn`t talk about building schools either.

As for the evil suggestion. Read Army psychologist Dave Grossman`s book On Killing to discover the true depth of your ignorance.

In short, you`re an idiotic throwback to the 60`s.

I also just want to say that all of these people talking about her shouldn`t be able to vote or should be kicked out of the country and stuff?! Doesn`t that go against what we fight for and what makes this country what it is?!!! I bet you all would have a different story if it were your family murdered and raped, if there was a foreign military base in your neighborhood with troops dehumanizing, raping, killing your family. I`ll never understand why we say we fight for our freedom but the first person to speak out against our heinous actions should be stripped of all those rights we fight for??!!
This country has been patriotically brainwashed...sad.

MelCervini "The saddest part about this is that she`s allowed to vote."

Only people who hold views which you think are reasonable should be allowed to vote? WOW! what`s your problem with democracy?

the saddest part is that you can`t see your opinion is arguably more extreme and dangerous than the opinion you criticised.

As a person that has a brother entering the marines and many many friend in the same organization, I have to say that I`m offended. They`re signing up for a job that they could lose their life for and they`d be doing it just for me. That`s honor and that`s self sacrifice.

I agree...glad someone finally said it. I come from a long line of military men (myself not included) and most of them go into the military because they screwed up and have no other options or they want to go play soldier and kill people. It is their choice to enlist and I do not feel obligated to commend them for their service nor put them on a pedastal. They chose to do it, they got paid.
