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.
