Oh come on guys, autistics don't want him either.
@DistractedDingo, as a person with an ASD, I approve of this message.
@DistractedDingo, We really don't.
@DistractedDingo, true, get him outta here
@DistractedDingo, while I agree, I challenge you to find a more humorous replacement.
@DistractedDingo, THANK YOU! Finally,someone gets it.
@Empshok, is there a word for someone who refuses to learn? Not *can't*, but won't. Like idiot, or moron maybe.
@DistractedDingo, I think we need to come up with one. All the old ones seem not to have sufficient potency.
I mean how does it affect you? Oh it doesn't? Then stfu
That brave soldier fought a war and may have lost some of his closest friends so that ignorant jack wagon could tweet stupidity
@pdljmpr81, so here's a viewpoint as to why I don't openly thank Veterans (given to me by my father who is a DISABLED VETERAN). Sometimes that soldier is just a regular guy who hasn't done anything amazing and joined the services because he got his girlfriend pregnant and needed a job. NOT ALL VETERANS WANT TO BE THANKED. I live in San Antonio, Texas where at one point we had 5 active military bases. I've seen Veterans go off on civilians for thanking them. Having full PTSD meltdowns. I've seen Veterans cuss out civilians and say,"Not everyone of us joined to fight for your freedom a$$hole." I keep my mouth shut and treat them like REGULAR PEOPLE because some JUST DO THEIR DAMN JOB whether it's being a clerk or going to war. Just don't disrespect them. I've also known a-hole Vets who suck up the "thanks" they get even though they've been kicked out of the service.
@SchroedingerPussPuss, I've honestly never thought about it like that before
@SchroedingerPussPuss, I personally do thank veterans myself for some of those same reasons but I do not say that someone doing something nice for someone else will cause me to vomit either. my father, uncle, and grandfather are all veterans
@pdljmpr81, truth- doing nice for others is a good thing. But having a Vet freak out on you because of PTSD and not feeling worthy of the thanks changes your perspective REALLLL fast. I knew a few of the guys who marched into Saddam's palace when the US broke in. It was extremely traumatic. He did NOT like being thanked for that. The horrors he saw happening to the women and children. What he saw, he wasn't fighting for spoiled first world American brats to keep their freedom... he was fighting to take down a tyrant through this weird oppressive world in the Middle East. Women stoned/raped/murdered in front of his eyes. He doesn't give two shjts about our freedoms that are pretty open and don't really need defending. Opens your eyes quite a bit :/
@SchroedingerPussPuss, thank you for your reasonable response some people have forgotten how to have different opinions without getting too excited and I will think upon your words
@SchroedingerPussPuss, well being a veteran myself of the army reserves I don't like being thanked for my service, because I was a financial management technician and never saw battle. Plenty of other soldiers deserve thanks but not me.
@SchroedingerPussPuss, thank you for this. I served 7 years and I hate being thanked. I didn't do it for you, or for medals, or any of that nonsense. I did it for my sister, my daughter, and my mother. My dad always taught me, "if you can, you should". He has served 35 years on the Newtown Volunteer Ambulance (he was a first responder at the Sandy Hook school shooting) the only thanks he ever received was the plaque hanging on his wall from his retirement party.
@Psyknis, yeah, my dad was quite upset after the Pres. W Bush era because it felt like we went polar opposite from the Vietnam era--- the extreme anti-soldier viewpoint to the extreme pro-soldier viewpoint.
@SchroedingerPussPuss, as active military I'll tell you it's awkward to be thanked. I haven't done anything worth thanking. I just do my job, which does not involve getting shot at.
@SchroedingerPussPuss, this is a good perspective *upvotes and then screenshots for future reference*
@pdljmpr81, chance is the wars fought today arent fought for us or our freedoms
@SchroedingerPussPuss, as a 9 year veteran I can confirm this. I made a long series of poor choices as a teenager and had to join to eat. I'm definitely not a hero for being in the navy. The navy helped me more than I helped it. I don't deserve thanks I deserve a bill for my schooling that let me get a job that requires an engineering degree even tho I have no college credit.
@SchroedingerPussPuss, yeah I've noticed that too. I always have a hard time guessing who to thank...
@SchroedingerPussPuss, It's a big tell with some people their character, on how they expect took be thanked. My boyfriend of a year served and I've only thanked him on Veterans Day, simply because we were still newly dating and didn't fully know everything behind the curtain. I lay next to him every night and comfort him when he has night terrors because of his PTSD. I become a familiar presence when he mentally is no longer in our now. He knows I'm thankful because some people would dip having that in a relationship, taking care of and injured solider. It is hard and scary when you're both in a dead sleep and suddenly the person you sleep next to wakes up and punches a wall, then a chair, then begins to grab you because that soldier think there are threats towards you both. And when you start to comfort them you can see they are still in military mode and they don't really see you as you, rather just a person they need to protect. And you just ride it out
@BeccersEliz , and comfort them until they come to again. It's terrifying because snapping someone back to reality is hard and 98% of me is scared for his safety and 2% I'm scared for mine.
But that is nothing. I'll still sleep like a baby and never have a different reality consume me. I'm the one who has it easy. So to him I show my thanks in action by being the person he can be weak in front of. To be the person who hold his hand when he's unsure of what's happening, and let him know everything will be ok.
Actions always speak louder than words. If you really want to thank a vet. Find a way to show it, even a small act counts. Just be a good human.
Whereas I have met someone who literally was in for a month type deal but ended up getting out. He basically went through some boot camp and got his picture yet expects people to thank his on the daily. I don't recall the full story but I know my friend who had now been in the army about 10+years gets super annoyed with him about that
@SchroedingerPussPuss, Nazis were doing there job too. When your power hungry leader bomb innocent peoples, it's still a war crime, having a USA sticker on your chest doesn't make You a saviour.
@SchroedingerPussPuss, I've had many veterans say what you just said. Giving them a nicer seat is okay. But yeah treating them like they're some sort of demigod is nonsense. Some are coming back with PTSD. Just let them get home quietly.
@SchroedingerPussPuss, I rarely know how to react when thanked for my service but I don't react like that. Wtf
@BeccersEliz , night terrors are so awful. I've never had to deal with an adult with them, but my son has sensory processing disorder and started getting them at 2 months old. It's scary as shjt in a child- and your heart BLEEDS for them. I couldn't imagine it with an adult!
Not all of our professors are like this I promise. I also promise that I'll never be taking this dickweed's class ever.
@Ringtail Red, someone with this level of blind hate is allowed to teach people things? What does he teach? How be a cock-weasel 101? AP bitching?
@Smo Queed, Virtue signaling 365; Intermediate "I'm better than everyone else"
They chose the fvcking monopoly guy to represent a model citizen. The monopoly guy.
@KeKesUHaulFacility , no. It's saying that even the monopoly guy is better than this cawk goblin.
@KeKesUHaulFacility , First class seat
@basrrf, I mean, still! The monopoly guy! Monopoly is right in the name, I don't... why?
@KeKesUHaulFacility , He's the cliché rich man. You can tell he looks rich just by looking at him
@basrrf, Soo, why is he the good person in this situation? "Ah yes, you can have my seat war peasant, I'll just charter my favorite jet instead"
@basrrf, the messages being sent here can't be what the "artist" intended
@KeKesUHaulFacility , the message that your incredibly disabled mind is seeing can't be what the artist intended
@RustyFapwagon, how you gonna pretend to care about the soldiers and then use disabled as a derogatory?
@KeKesUHaulFacility , me making a disabled joke is not the same as me knowing how ROE works for the private sector and our military.
I just make fun of you because you say dumb things.
This pic is great but wtf is with the autism references lately. Autistic people have sensory issues and social deficits along with other development challenges they aren't sjw jacka$$es.
See on one side sure Mosul was a clusterfudge, however the soldiers are not responsible for that the politicians above them are.
Sure thanking soldiers might not always be a good idea, as SchroedingerPussPuss said, but blaming soldiers for military fiascos above their pay grade is stupid.
The fvck is a Mosul?
@Strider1321, it's currently one of the last of the big cities isis controls in Iraq. Currently special American "advisors" are on the ground there helping the Iraqi army and various militias retake the city. Currently half the city has been liberated but it's a hard fight because the terrorist are pretty dug in. We are using special forces, airstikes, and artillery to help retake the city. This guy's tweet is, I'm assuming, going on the assumption that some sort of war crimes is being committed there. In reality you can read tons of account of people in the city being slaughtered by isis. Also Russia is bombing isis and various rebel group in the region. Unlike America they only drop dumb bombs in heavily populated civilian areas they are the real people this j@ck@ss needs to be mad at.
@Policeiu, also I said "advisors" because this is the way the president (both Obama and trump) justify having soldiers there. They are "advising" not in active combat rolls. Also to note I am totally for this tactic as it reduces American csualities and resources in the area. I received all of this information from war is boring, and a website led by Tyler roadway it's called "the war zone".
@Policeiu, thank you, wasn't sure if he meant mogul instead so thank you for clarifying.
So now people who are stupid are called gay and autistic? Real nice
@Dickwad, ouch. Gay autism
@SchroedingerPussPuss, caused by all those vaccines....
Anyone go to this guy's twitter? Fvck this dude.
What or who is a mosul?
Idk why people fan girl over soldiers it's not like if they didn't go over there and murder a bunch of people we wouldn't be able to talk freely to each other what is the oh so important sacrifice they're making and why does it make someone who has the sense to question this stupid it makes no sense
@Ninja0722, the sacrifice they make is there mental and physical health so they can protect their country from those who want to take it down. Even if they don't see combat, they were still willing to risk everything they have just to protect a whole bunch of people they haven't even met. When they go over to "murder a bunch of people" they don't do it for fun. Those "bunch of people" were trying to murder us first or dominate us and rule over us. So when you see someone "fan girl" over a solider, just remember this fact: "that solider put everything on the line so that person would have the opportunity to fan girl over anything, and my freedom to act like a pompous cvnt
@dichbute, 6 year old Iraqi children were trying to murder us?
@Ninja0722, The general rule is if you don't drop down to your knees and deepthroat the dick of every soldier you see you're a commie bastard.
@KeKesUHaulFacility , what a skewed, unrealistic view of the world you have
@Ninja0722, I watched Saving Private Ryan for the second time this week. With that being said, I'm gone have to disagree, buddy
@Ninja0722, your understanding of the real world doesn't stretch too far beyond Facebook and Twitter, does it?
@dichbute, Additionally, it should be stated that the US is obligated by international treaty to defend over a third of all major countries, while also funding almost 30% of the UNSC by ourselves, in addition to providing a great deal of defensive infrastructure and military technology to many of our allies and fellow NATO members.
Often times the soldiers aren't even sent into other countries to protect the US, but the interest of our less militarily powerful allies, or as is more often the case currently, to intervene in places such as Sudan and Somalia to prevent genocides, massive civil wars and mass violations of basic human rights.
@KeKesUHaulFacility , did you know that the Mudslimes in those countries often indoctrinate children that are capable of holding up a gun and teach them to shoot soldiers if they get the chance?
I know people that came back pretty fvcked up because they had to shoot a kid with a gun. You're acting like they're issued haji child tags with no limit.
@USMC83, propaganda is propaganda no matter how you slice It the constant narrative of the horrible terrorist is trying to kill all Americans so we have to invade a country kills thousands of people who are alleged "terrorist" all to save the great and Mighty America but yes I'm the ignorant one.
@RustyFapwagon, I did know that, did you know that radicalization is a direct effect of western nations imposing their interests on the middle east and sending soldiers as mercenaries to feed the war industry helps nobody?
@KeKesUHaulFacility , it's not. Mudslimes were radical far before the west pushed them back. It's the shjtty ideology not the west.
They've had literally millions of slaves and they still have thousands. The Qur'an (and I've read it) literally says over 20 times that it's ok to kill infidels, rape your enemies women, take slaves, etc.
Contractors get sent because there are assets in those shjtholes. Just because some djckbags mess up sometimes doesn't mean all contractors do. You know how you don't like it when people say shjt like "black people commit a majority of crime in the US so they're all criminals"? Same thing.
@KeKesUHaulFacility , i was really hoping youd left this app, you say the dvmbest sh!t.
@Ninja0722, then get the fvck out of america if youre not willing to stand behind the men and woman willing to die for your freedoms. God i fvcking hate people like you.
@RustyFapwagon, 1. Pushed them back? We, like, INVENTED Al Qaeda. Feeding terrorist organizations is America's favorite pasttime.
2. America still has thousands of slaves too, we were never any better than them on that front.
3. Big fvckin woop the Qur'an says to kill infidels, we're still safe, the terrorists you're talking about kill mostly Muslims.
4. Keep black people's name out your mouth, you don't deserve to talk about us, you racist ass rat.
I'm talking before the crusades. You act like Islam just got violent.
"America still has thousands of slaves too"
Are you retarded?
Yeah they mostly kill Mudslimes because they've historically been stuck in their shjtholes but now they're trying to immigrate into Europe and North America.
Cry about it
@GunLovingMerican, FROM WHO?! Who is the big boogie man that is going to strip me of my freedom and enslave me
@Ninja0722, the left wing portion of the government and every Sharia Law advocate on the planet just to name a few million
@PB2, "while also funding 30% of the UNSC by ourselves"
We have to prepare for the Covenant.
@RustyFapwagon, At your big big age you're basing your whole hateful philosophy off 6th grade history class? Pls.
And yeah, America has tons of slaves. We have the biggest prison population for a reason, prisoners are used for their labor. And you really should choke and die for calling those people "mudslimes" they're just tryna live
@KeKesUHaulFacility , toplol a convicted felon is a convicted felon. They deserve the shjt they get. We treat our prisoners far far better than any other country. If you don't want to be treated like a felon I've got a really great solution: don't break the law.
I call them Mudslimes because they follow a violent shjtty ideology.
@RustyFapwagon, So do you?
@Ninja0722, i really hope your just being a troll and not that low of a person.
@KeKesUHaulFacility , do I not break the law? No I don't break the law.
@KeKesUHaulFacility , hey buddy war is hell. Shjt happens but how many children were saved by killing the men and women they have to kill. Over there a child is property, to be sold, prostituted out or sold into slavery.
@KeKesUHaulFacility , no one is asking you to do that, just have some freaking respect you cvnt, there are men and women who have died so you can say the stupid bullshjt you just said. How dare you.
@Firecracker Jim, "could be worse" isn't good enough. How many children could be saved if we just dismantled the capitalist war machine like we should?
@Firecracker Jim, They didn't die for my freedom, they died because oligarchs told our government to send them to their deaths. And they deserved better. And everyone fighting overseas now deserves better.
@KeKesUHaulFacility , Except for all the rapists in the military I guess. But that's a separate issue
@Firecracker Jim, what about me questioning the propaganda that we're constantly spoon fed best part is the hypocrisy of this country in nazi Germany the German people rallied behind the army and the government pick out a group of people as the enemy and if you didn't rally with everyone else you were an enemy of the state
@Ninja0722, how dare you compare our troops to nazis. And most of those people would have been killed if they didn't. They didn't have a right to not like there army. We do. You have the right to belive what every you want and you have the right to act like a cvnt but that right was written in the blood of men and women who gave there lives for it.
@Firecracker Jim, don't bother with them. They're obviously retarded
@KeKesUHaulFacility , um yeah, I've had women and children shoot at me or throw grenades. That's because that's what they were trained and told to do. We're hated because we're the West and not followers of Allah.
@JangoFett, Maybe if the US wasn't such an imperialist piece of crap we wouldn't be hated so much.
@KeKesUHaulFacility , The point is yes we botched Afghanistan in the 90's. We left a country that had been devistated by Russia to fed for itself with no infrastructure and 50% of the pop 14yo. But after that Bin Laden was able to gain power and hated us for no reason. We helped deliver a Muslim country from the terror and oppression that cold war Era Russian was dishing out and it came back around to bite us. That being said the groups that run Afghanistan are absolutely horrible. They have slaves and sell women and children as sex slaves. Ive seen the markets for myself. I think this is our attempt to save the soul of that country from the time we left them out to dry all those years ago.
@JangoFett, We're the whole reason Bin Laden could come to power. Like I said before, we gave Al Qaeda tons and tons of money to resist the Russians. If we bothered to see past our own anti-communist, money driven goals for two seconds we could have done more investigation into the ideology of the fundamentalist, terrorist organization. We gave ourselves, and Afghanistan, the okey-doke!
@KeKesUHaulFacility , there was a small group headed by Charles Wilson a congressman from Texas who sought to do just that.
@JangoFett, Investigate Al Qaeda or give us the okey-doke?
@KeKesUHaulFacility , you want to know something funny about the middle east that you very clearly don't understand? This is all happening because of Islam and stupidity. Our hand in this changes very little. Sharia law dictates that these people act and live like this. Before Bin Laden there was another equally shjtty leader and before him the same. If we kill one, another one will fill it's place. The middle east and Africa have that in common. The people there don't like a dictator so they over throw the government and instate another dictator that will suck like the last one. This is the way that these garbage areas will always be. Even in the "nice" and "moderate" Mudslime controlled areas they still have slaves, throw gays from buildings because the law of the state commands it, throw acid on/stone women for being raped. As soon as that part of the world find out of oil and the money stops they'll be back to killing each other with sticks living out of mud huts.
@RustyFapwagon, Just saying "I hate brown people" would save a lot of space, time, and energy bruh.
@KeKesUHaulFacility , except I don't hate brown people. I just hate the ideology and I think we should leave the region to burn itself to the ground because they very clearly don't want help.
@KeKesUHaulFacility , it must be really hard having such a shjt argument and so little knowledge on a subject that all you can counter with is "muh racism"
@RustyFapwagon, Once again, you could just say "I hate brown people" and call it a day.
@KeKesUHaulFacility , see my previous comment and craft a better argument.
Seriously though if you're a bait account than you're doing an amazing job of playing retarded SJW
@RustyFapwagon, Your argument is "mudslimes deserve to die". I mean, if you think my stance is so bad you gotta remember you get back what you put in.
@KeKesUHaulFacility , that's not my argument? My argument is that people that follow a shjtty ideology crafted by an imperialistic slave owning pedo shouldn't get help from us since the ideology advocates killing everyone that isn't Islamic. Seems like a pretty easy call to me.
Toplol this has to be bait.
@RustyFapwagon, But OUR ideology was created by imperialistic slave owning pedos????? By that measure, literally every western nation deserves the same fate that you hope for them???
@KeKesUHaulFacility , false. Being a pedo isn't acceptable in the west. Britain was imperialistic and we broke away from them and created the most powerful prosperous and independent nation in the planet. We aren't imperialistic like Britain was even though we're far more capable of controling the planet than them just like Christians aren't violent and imperialistic anymore (even though they only really became that was as a response to Mudslime imperialism in the first place).
Our society and standards advanced. They did not and they refuse to accept that we won't be owned by their trash ideology.
@RustyFapwagon, I'M GONNA PEE MYSELF. CHRISTIANS AREN'T IMPERIALIST AND VIOLENT???? OH MY GOD. OH MY SWEET BABY JESUS
@KeKesUHaulFacility , thanks for confirming your autism. No Christians aren't violent or imperialistic anymore except for a very small subset like Westboro and no one takes them seriously.
@KeKesUHaulFacility , if you genuinely believe that Christians are as violent as Islam is currently then why are gay people killed constantly for being gay and why aren't people jailed/killed for "blasphemy" like they are in every Mudslime majority nation?
@KeKesUHaulFacility , your black and white ideology (note: this is a saying not related to skin color) is actually sickening. Learn about confirmation bias. You are seeing only what you want to see to confirm your beliefs with very little rational or educated thought or research. Try a more balanced approach. You sound like you get your information from Buzzfeed and youtube conspiracy videos.
@PB2, THANK YOU. And as a few Vets stated above, quite a few didn't join to protect the freedoms of the average American... they joined because they needed a JOB.
@Weird Porn Stash, The United Nation Security Council, not the United Nations Space Command.
everyones equal, dont give a fvck what your job is
Every soldier has everything to do with every battle in Iraq, just like every man must support what Donald Trump says because he too is a man.
Go back to the New Yorker. Your political satire has no place here.
