The Washington Post is having another meltdown.
This time, it’s just plain disgusting.
Washington Post writer Greg Sargent is now attacking President-Elect Donald Trump’s pick for Department of Homeland Security General John Kelly for a statement he made just four days after his son died fighting Islamic terrorists in Afghanistan.
Read the horrible attack on Kelly here:
Donald Trump has chosen retired Marine Gen. John F. Kelly to run the Department of Homeland Security, a post that will have great consequence in a Trump administration, given Trump’s vow of a much tougher approach to combating illegal immigration and internal terrorist threats, both areas that DHS oversees.
In that context, there is a quote that Kelly delivered in 2010 that libertarians and civil liberties experts see as troubling, and in need of further clarification. The Post account describes it this way:
Kelly learned firsthand the pain and loss suffered by many military families. His son, 2nd Lt. Robert M. Kelly, died in Afghanistan fighting the Taliban in 2010. Four days later, the general delivered a passionate and at times angry speech about the military’s sacrifices and its troops’ growing sense of isolation from society.
“Their struggle is your struggle,” he told a crowd of former Marines and business people in St. Louis. “If anyone thinks you can somehow thank them for their service, and not support the cause for which they fight — our country — these people are lying to themselves. … More important, they are slighting our warriors and mocking their commitment to this nation.”
This is just another reminder that the mainstream media will always stoop low.
The media will attack a man for what he said days after his son dies in war.
