The recent events surrounding Bowe Bergdahl, the supposed POW that was traded off for 5 of the worst Taliban members being held in Guantanamo Bay, seems to be getting weirder by the minute. It just goes to show that liberals deem what is considered dishonorable to be heroic. Check this out from Lieutenant Colonel Allen B. West:
This past Sunday, National Security Advisor Susan Rice referred to Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl as having served with “honor and distinction.” And today, from Poland, President Barack Hussein Obama, when asked about the circumstances surrounding the night of Bergdahl’s disappearance dismissed the question as “irrelevant.”
Irrelevant whether he simply walked off the base, deserted the Army or colluded with the enemy?
The progressives seem to think that the fact that Bergdahl deserted his base is irrelevant – and why would they think like this? Col. West points out the liberal line of thinking:
You see, for liberal progressives, standing up and defending your men in combat, scaring, threatening, or ultimately destroying the enemy is bad — consider the American Soldiers sitting in prison at Ft. Leavenworth, like Army Lieutenant Clint Lorance or recently released Army Lieutenant Michael Behenna. These are men who don’t make negative statements and comments about their country or army. These are men who are willing to endure the crucible of betrayal and the hate-filled speech attacking their integrity and character. Those are the ones who the liberal progressives despise, denigrate, demean, disparage, and dishonor — trust me, I have first-hand experience.
Perhaps if I had played the victim and condemned my country and President George W. Bush for ruining my life due to his venture in an “unjust” war, I would have become an overnight liberal sensation — their version of a hero. I thank God I am not that weak in character.
No, it’s not supposed to make sense in Obamaland. If you speak against your country – you’re deemed a hero. He continues with what this means and what liberal progressives see as honorable:
What the episode surrounding Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl conveys to us all is that desertion is honorable to liberal progressives. Making anti-American comments and statements is distinguished and conveys a certain distinction of service. Having six Soldiers lose their lives during search and recovery operations — as opposed to taking an action to preserve American Soldiers’ lives — is held in high regard. And lying to the families of those killed is acceptable, if not encouraged. Releasing the enemy is a more relevant and worthy reason to violate an oath to the Constitution — as opposed to upholding that same oath.
He wraps it all up with this:
This is the upside-down bizarro world of the liberal progressives where the certificate that hangs on my wall for Honorable Service means nothing. Why? Because someone like me or Clint Lorance doesn’t make them feel good. Sergeant Bergdahl makes liberals feel good because he is a victim and they have set him free — who cares about the poor souls six feet under as a result of his nefarious action? It is, after all, “irrelevant.”
It’s a crazy world we are living in. Up is down and down is up.
