All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!


WWCD, What Would Chesty Do?

"The Marines I have seen around the world have the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen. Thank God for the United States Marine Corps!"
Eleanor Roosevelt, 1945

US Marine Corporal Joshua Belile made up a song about shooting Iraqis. Some of the words to the song:

"I grabbed her little sister and put her in front of me. As the bullets began to fly, the blood sprayed from between her eyes, and then I laughed maniacally.

"I blew those little f--kers to eternity. ... They should have known they were f--king with the marines."

This song has the sand-niggers panties in a bunch. Too freaking bad. I understand that to a normal person this song sounds really really bad. News flash: Marines aren’t normal people. What they are is highly tuned instruments of death. Every Marine is first and foremost a rifleman. They are expected to kill whomever their told to. They are expected to fight anyone anywhere they are ordered to go. They will do this with outdated weapons, little water, no food, no sleep, poor supplies and little moral support at home. As they have done since 1775.

The way they psyche themselves up to do this is part of their training. Every Marine is broken down and rebuilt in the image of the Corps. They tell themselves from day one that they are the hardest toughest SOB’s to walk up right on two legs, they are God’s answer to over population of the species, they are Marines.

"You cannot exaggerate about the Marines. They are convinced to the point of arrogance, that they are the most ferocious fighters on earth- and the amusing thing about it is that they are."
Father Kevin Keaney
Korean War

It’s worked. Marines have kicked terrorist butt from the shores of Tripoli to Afghanistan. They have overthrown nations, they fought Belleau Wood, Iwo Jima, Guadalcanal, Saipan, Okinawa, Inchon, Chosin Reservoir, and Vietnam. Today they dodge IED’s in Iraq.

"We're surrounded. That simplifies our problem of getting to these people and killing them."
Chesty Puller at the Chosin Reservoir

Some Cpl. who’s been trained to believe that he is the angel of death, makes up a song about killing people that he’s been ordered to kill. What’s the big deal? Why is this a surprise to anyone? Oh I get it, the towel heads that kill their own women and children, that blow stuff up, that advocate killing all Americans including civilians, they feel bad about his song. Boo freaking hoo.

What’s got my dander up is that the Marines are acting like this guy actually did something wrong. To date the USMC has largely resisted the PC forces. That’s why they’re still effective at doing their job. I doubt that Gen Hagee gives a rip about my opinion on this so I’d like to remind him what other Marines have said:

"The bended knee is not a tradition of our Corps."
General Alexander A. Vandergrift, USMC, to the Senate Naval Affairs Committee,
5 May 1946

"Being ready is not what matters. What matters is winning after you get there."
Lieutenant General Victor H. Krulak, USMC, April 1965.

"Our Country won't go on forever, if we stay soft as we are now. There won't be any AMERICA because some foreign soldier will invade us and take our women and breed a hardier race!"

"Ensure that no Marine who honorably wore the eagle, globe and anchor is lost to the Marine Corps family."
General James L. Jones Jr., Commandant of the Marine Corps

Commandant of the Marine Corps Gen. Michael W. Hagee, you have a Cpl that’s surrounded by the enemy, pined down, out numbered, and taking fire from all sides, including the USMC, its time to step up and defend him. He's done nothing wrong. If you can’t do that, turn in your dress blues, the PC military is ready to issue you a blue dress.

“If you've got them by the balls their hearts and minds will follow.”

Since the USMC is now interested in playing politics with this Marines life, its time to let the politicians know how you feel about the situation. Creating something bad for the PR brass to deal with isn't a court martial offense.
