My readers know that I from time to time find an anal statement that someone in the news makes that is either crazy, stupid, or just plain ignorant…..and then I post them and at the end of the year I have my readers vote on the most anal statement of the year…….
In 2007, I as always was making notes and I found one made by a person in the news about the war in Vietnam and as a vet of that war I found it insulting and a completely ignorant thing to say…….I did not offer it up in 2007 for some reason…my guess is I had a brain fart…..and I found it when I was going back through my notebooks from 2007…..so I want to post it now…better late than never…….
David Barton (born 1954) is an American evangelical Christian minister, conservative activist, and author. He founded WallBuilders, a Texas-based organization with a goal of exposing the claimed US constitutional separation of church and state as a myth. Barton is the former co-chair of the Republican Party of Texas.
Okay, we have a Christian activist that has an opinion on the War in Vietnam……
intelligence now shows that had the US just done one more bombing run, the Viet Cong would have surrendered.
This idiot just made it personal!
First, since I was there for 2 and half years, I would tell him, in person, that unless he was actually there he has NO opinion! My advice is……… SHUT THE FUCK UP!
Second, the North Vietnamese army was just as instrumental in the war as the Viet Cong….
I am tired of all these so-called Americans that have all the answers to what happen in Vietnam and not once had someone shoot at them in anger…..the real problem is that people listen to these insulting a/holes! Especially detest people like this bonehead that pretends to be some sort of historical expert and then tries to re-write history to suit his pathetic narrative…….
