Vomit On White Genocidist Ciccariello-Maher

Today is Vietnam Veterans Day
Brave men and women dodged bullets and shells heading into harm’s way
Only to be spit upon, sworn at by pampered college students safe at home
Ringing shouts of baby killers returning from Vietnam’s killing zone
Unlike World War II or the Korean War with the nation for the troops as one
The lack of support for our Vietnam troops can only stun
From Hanoi Jane pointing an AAA up into the Hanoi sky
An image suggesting she wanted the bomber pilots to be shot down and die
To the thousands occupying universities and marching by the thousands in the streets
Demonstrating not for victory but demonstrating for the soldiers’ defeat
It is hard to comprehend the depression and abandonment those men and women must have felt knowing the home front did not have their backs
Hard to comprehend their courage and bravery to saddle up again, lock and load and move out into the jungle for yet another never ending attack
But they did, again and again, through the paddies and through the ambush lurking jungle paths
For 12 or 13 months to for their nation and flag and buddy practice their deadly craft
Unwanted, unloved, despised, except by family and close friends
Praying each night in the field or firebase that their life would not soon end
Today we are involved in another war, a war on terror with no end in sight
No longer draftees but highly motivated soldiers eager to the forces of evil fight
A grateful nation frustrated by the rise of ISIS and the callousness of the VA
Worried that their sons and daughters or mothers and fathers are in harm’s way
Another news item that makes you want to wonder what colleges teach, makes you want to puke
That leftist George Ciccariello-Maher after his White genocide wish in line for another Drexel rebuke
This Drexel professor tweets that he wanted to vomit after a passenger gave up his first class seat
To a soldier in uniform maybe coming back from an Afghan tour having death or wounds once again beat
This “professor” is a complete loser who should be thankful the deplorables do not advocate for the academic left genocide
Disagree with the policy all you want but for heaven’s sake for receiving a bit of comfort don’t men and women in uniform deride
