@elkingo - I can't speak for madest for why he said that, but I was responding to how you said if we don`t like our vets, we should get out. You and many other people make it seem like we have to worship the ground that vets walk on or else we`re horrible anti-American people. Vets are average people like you and me, some of them are racist, some of them are sexist, some of them are homophobic, some of them are downright horrible people. I`m not going to blindly worship people I don`t even know simply for doing their job, even though I appreciate what they`ve done for our country.
That was targeted at me? I thought you were just making a random statement of bias and ignorance. Okay.
I think 5Cats summed it up best. There is simply no evidence that the vets are racists at all. Madest is making that assumption. I find it absolutely revolting that he does so, and furthermore a utter disrespect to the servicemen who defended our country.
Typically when you start calling someone a racist, it is based on something racist that they did.
BTW -- Defending and loving our country: not a basis for racism.
