Memorial Day honors our soldiers in the armed forces who gave their lives in service to our country.

Our country calls these men and women heroes.

Quiner’s Diner honors them.

On the other hand, the mainstream media (MSM) questions them. MSNBC’S (the media mouthpiece to anything liberal) Chris Hayes questioned the valor of our fallen soliders:

“Um, I, I, ah, back sorry, um, I think it’s interesting because I think it is very difficult to talk about the war dead and the fallen without invoking valor, without invoking the words “heroes.” Um, and, ah, ah, why do I feel so comfortable [sic] about the word “hero”?  I feel comfortable, ah, uncomfortable, about the word because it seems to me that it is so rhetorically proximate to justifications for more war. Um, and, I don’t want to obviously desecrate or disrespect memory of anyone that’s fallen, and obviously there are individual circumstances in which there is genuine, tremendous heroism: hail of gunfire, rescuing fellow soldiers and things like that. But it seems to me that we marshal this word in a way that is problematic. But maybe I’m wrong about that.”

Some of our fallen soldiers were drafted. Some volunteered.

Chris Hayes is “uncomfortable” calling these Americans heroes except in certain situations best left for liberals to discern.

On the other hand, Quiner’s Diner, like the rest of the nation with their head screwed on straight, finds nothing problematic with calling them heroes.

We thank these heroes for their ultimate sacrifice for America.

    And that’s proof that the lamestream media hates soldiers? Does that narrative match at all with the fact that every other news story today has something to do Memorial Day? Is it really disrespectful to question the fact that 44% of our spending goes to defense? That with the majority of that money going to “base” defenses in peaceful countries, our military may be the biggest welfare system there is? That we spend more on defense than France, Britain, China, Russia, Germany, and Japan combined? Will I ever stop asking rhetorical questions?
