Mocking Pat Tillman, or Why so many people hate The Left

I couldn’t believe it when I saw that the far-left-leaning Portland Independent Media Center had prinited a copy an article on the death of Pat Tillman in Afghanistan with the following headline:

Dumb Jock Killed in Afghanistan

How clever. How smart. How quintessentially witty.

Whoever wrote that headline is a total POS and a fool. Tillman is a hero’s hero (and “hero” is a word I use sparingly) and to mock his death is simply disgusting, and worse.

Can you imagine the hurt this could cause Tillman’s family and friends? Can you imagine the grist this can provide for the Republican’s propaganda mill? How could anyone be so stupid?

The more I think about it, the madder I get, so I’d better end it here.

The Discussion: 3 Comments

I fully agree, and some of the comments are not much better. Ew. I don’t even want to go back and look at it again.

Why even link to it? Just write the article, give no link or reason for people to go to that article.

Tillman was a good guy, someone that believed in his country and felt he needed to go protect freedom. And, he died serving his country (something that people forgot during the Vietnam era).

To reference an article with no link is considered poor blog etiquette. Also, I think everyone should go there and read the comments.
