Taking stupid to new levels, one whiny rant at a time.

The liar right is inciting hatred of the military just as they have hatred of the TSA. It is only a matter of time before a Jones/Beck/Levin zombie shoots up a military base or attacks off-duty personnel, while the hate mongers laugh all the way to the bank and the Koch brothers nod in approval.

The “Obama purging the military” meme is gaining steam on the wingnut blogosphere. It’s suggested he’s doing this to prevent a coup, or establish martial law so he can declare himself ruler for life.

Seriously.

What I find most disturbing, is those retired military officers supporting the story with commentary and quotes. But then, I realise why I am familiar with their names. They’re well known nutbags. And not surprisingly, they try to drag don’t ask don’t tell, women in the military, rules of engagement and so on into the conspiracy theory. Doesn’t take long to figure out who in this alleged conspiracy has the agenda. And I don’t think it’s the administration.

Just as an aside, most veterans I know agree we have too many general officers in all the services. This makes the possibility of a purge of General Officers yet another case of a good thing that gets pilloried if/when it happens.

Mark Levin - Obama Purging Our Military of Its Generals Like a Third World Dictator

As opposed to George W. Bush, who fired any general who said they needed more soldiers for the Iraq War before it was started, all of which contributed to the deaths of approximately 3,400 American soldiers.

That’s what I’ve heard as well.

My understanding is that the U.S. Military was surprised by WWII and didn’t have the officers needed to command the huge army that event required. It lead to a lot of problems and a lot of people dying who didn’t need to.

They’ve been prepared for the next World War ever since.

That made some sense during the Cold War but that’s been over for more than two decades. Now it’s lead to a sclerotic organization that is basically operating on auto-pilot, and a lot of technocrats pretending to be soldiers.

It’s a story as old as history.

Levin, like the rest of the shit-stirring radio talkers trying to out-extreme each other to keep their audience of RWNJs, is just doing what he has to in a crowded, conspiracy driven business.

Extremism in the search for an audience is no vice - Me
