Liberal Media Show For The Gullible

Published by at 11:59 am under All General Discussions

So it seems liberals found a soldier who would be happy to play a starring role in their made-for-TV production of “Bush’s Illegal War”, wherein the poor, uneducated, desperate hick from the country is seduced into protecting his company, tricked into fighting an ‘illegal’ war – a war Congress authorized and has funded for 5 years now.

Ladies and Gentelmen, in his national acting debut, we give you Sgt Matthis Chiroux:

Matthis Chiroux is the kind of young American US military recruiters love.

“I was from a poor, white family from the south, and I did badly in school,” the now 24-year-old told AFP.

“I was ‘filet mignon’ for recruiters. They started phoning me when I was in 10th grade,” or around 16 years old, he added.

Chiroux joined the US army straight out of high school nearly six years ago, and worked his way up from private to sergeant.

He served in Afghanistan, Germany, Japan, and the Philippines and was due to be deployed next month in Iraq.

On Thursday, he refused to go, saying he considers Iraq an illegal war.

“I stand before you today with the strength and clarity and resolve to declare to the military, my government and the world that this soldier will not be deploying to Iraq,” Chiroux said in the sun-filled rotunda of a congressional building in Washington.

“My decision is based on my desire to no longer continue violating my core values to support an illegal and unconstitutional occupation… I refuse to participate in the Iraq occupation,” he said, as a dozen veterans of the five-year-old Iraq war looked on.

Minutes earlier, Chiroux had cried openly as he listened to former comrades-in-arms testify before members of Congress about the failings of the Iraq war.

It’s so bad in this illegal war (Congress authorized and continuously funds) that recruitment across the board is … way up. What we have is John Kerry Jr – some guy willing to sell out his buddies (who risked their lives to protect his) for fame and fortune (trust me, he is getting something for this). The fact this guy picked a left-wing congressional committee to make his stance in front of the cameras is all you need to know about this propaganda stunt. A stunt that will backfire.

When the real journalists decide to find the story behind this my guess is they will find things about the sergeant that will start to blow holes in this stunt. For one, his comrades will come forward and give their view (that old ‘swiftboating’ trick where you ask people there what REALLY happened). I am glad to see the media treating the American people as a bunch of stupid rubes who would never see through this slick Madison Avenue charade. Never in a million years.

Update: It seems Kerry Jr is not really a fighter, but an Army photographer. What was so illegal he would be doing in Iraq? Is there something we should now about how Sgt Chiroux uses his camera? This is clearly an offshoot of the Hollywood Writers’ Strike – who is dumb enough to fall for this crap?

OK, I know there are hundreds of left-wing sites who will be rushing to show their ignorance and how they are puppets of the elitists in DC and NYC. But let’s face reality folks, there will always be folks slated for the B-Ark of life (which only fans of Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy will understand).

    In case the poor boy hasn’t noticed the ‘War’ has dropped way down in the ‘to do’ list for most polling going on out there.

    Sure there are blogs and sites that follow it , but for many other issues are more front burner now.

    In a way, thats good it’s a whole lot better just to let those in the field do their job without having to play press conference ping pong on every small move you make.

    Hopefully the populace remembers that people are people no matter where they’re from or what job they hold. I knew someone whose uncle (in his 40’s I believe) signed up for the military because he wanted the benefits. His family thought this was entirely acceptable. Then came Afghanistan and Iraq. Boy were they pissed…and him! He didn’t plan on going to war! He just wanted the benefits!

    It isn’t any different than the person off th street who takes a job for the money, benefits, location, or whatever, who either never intended to actually do the work or was unhappy with it after they took it. The media is counting on their readers all being stupid to buy into that story. Of course the media believes the whole populace is stupid…but we’re not.

    Since when is it normal to think hey I’ll sign up for the military or take this job but I don’t want to do any work to EARN my benefits?

  4. KauaiBoy says:

    (CRZY4POLITKS) Its called government work and you and I pay for it everyday.

    Another reason I don’t need advise from the 20 somethings of the world.

    Did anyone notice this all-American soldier boy was talking to the AFP?

    Disgusting. I wonder what Debbie Lee has to say about this…her son being the first Navy Seal killed in Iraq and winner of the Medal of Honor, his soul rest in peace.

    Joined in 2002…

    Spent time in Germany, Japan, and the Philippines. I hope he saw the sites during his travel and adventure.

    Afghanistan. When. Where. For how long.

    Joined after the GLOBAL war on terror began.
    During the run-up to Iraq.

    Reenlisted in either 2004 or 2006.


    Nice Sergeant. Nice Pay

    Now go break rocks for your paycheck.

    Anyone who has joined the military in the last 6 years had to have some idea what he would be asked to do.

    BTW, there are always people who will refuse to fight. happens every way. but when the military is voluntary it is just kind of silly to put yourself in that place.

    Donbe too hard on the guy. He may be a willing too but just remember that the leftist party is always hunting for a tool like this to use. I was just urge that we stay focused on the real crime here.
