Welcome Home

Thbplllllllllt

Hailey, Idaho—the hometown of Bowe Bergdahl—was going to have a parade, but then the Flying Monkeys arrived:

That’s because some town officials have been deluged with angry calls from people who think that Bergdahl is an Army deserter or traitor who doesn’t deserve a hero’s welcome…

“All these five years, never a word of any negative nature whatsoever. And now, after two days, I was shocked when late at night, watching (TV) I started seeing the dragon’s head roar. Comments that are just off the wall.”

“(We’re) really surprised at the people who are calling — they are hate calls, they’re not just people voicing an opinion,” she said. “The girls just don’t even… we’re all just absolutely in shock, we don’t know how to respond to that to tell you quite truthfully.”

The homecoming parade is cancelled. This little town of 8,000 people cannot welcome home a son after 5 years in captivity.

  1. If that little town of 8000 had just ten folks with some cajones, they’d tell the flying monkey squadron to fuck the fuck off.

    All this time, I never realized that FDR was the villain of Saving Private Ryan.

    That’s a pretty fucking sweet way to support the troops! Forcing a town to call off a parade to celebrate a neighborhood soldier’s return to his family after five years of imprisonment merely because political opposition has tried him in the newspapers and drummed up the hoi paloi’s hatred to such a fever pitch that the town can’t insure the safety of anyone who attends.

    I don’t wonder that the US must employ high priced mercenaries to fight their foreign wars. The way it’s been treating it’s soldiers recently, you’d have to be a fool to join the military.

    After reading about his email to his father about his true feelings about the war and the US in general I think the guy is a hero for coming to that realization. Anyone that joins the armed forces now days is merely a tool and fool for the war money making machine.
