    Norman Rockwell Thanksgiving (Not in Iraq)


    Nine years ago this day I was in Iraq at a forward operating base embedded with the 10th Mountain Division and alongside all those men and women missing Thanksgiving with my family.


    Not one article, Tweet, or video clip ran that said we were wasting our time out there, that we were being used as a political tool by the president, even though we were, and the waste was 1000x greater in every way over whatever’s going on on the Mexican border.


    You are concerned about how the U.S. is treating people of color? In Iraq, we were killing them, not refusing them asylum. Women, kids, old men, whatever, collateral damage.


    The media didn’t criticize our deployment then, they cheered it, and when they criticize it today only in one place, Mexico (the troops are still in Iraq for another Thanksgiving, by the way) just Because Trump they either don’t know or likely don’t care how empty, rude, and hypocritical they fucking sound.

      Dude, this is the country that celebrates every Turkey Day the extermination of Native Americans. So if the caravan ever makes it here, at least they know what a bunch of evil white motherfuckers that are waiting for them. Hey, somebody pass the Saudi bonesaw.

      Death is our meat and potatoes

      This country is the major supplier of weapons of death for the world and gets upset when one guy gets axed? Maybe if they waterboard him with Agent Orange we would be less outraged.

      What we should be thankful:

      That any mentally deranged asshole can buy a weapon that can kill as many unarmed people- and isn’t that really the issue- as his sick mind desires.

      More guns, please.

      Thank you, mr. Presidense, for showing the world our true face. Our morality has always been for sale.

      The turkey should have been our national bird. This country will be carved up by greedy bastards who can’t get too fat.

      I’d like to give praise and thanks to the Saudis for helping to keep America safe this Thanksgiving Day. Our hegemonic military couldn’t do it without you. Until Musk starts building electric fighter jets, tanks and attack ships we’ll need your oil! Bless you for understanding our current petrol needs. You are a true friend of democracy. *snark

      IF Trumpie stiffs the Saudi royal camel fuckers on their deal, they will call him in for an appointment at the Saudi Embassy.

      And we won’t do anything, because nothing gets in the way of selling weapons of death, right?

      And the Trumpies know that would be hypocritical.
