Chris Apologizes For Not Recognizing Fallen Soldiers As Heroes; Idiot! He's Never Served In The Military!


This is the first time I consider You to be an Idiot!

Inspite of your Education, only an Idiot would say something so Stupid about America's Fallen Soldiers/ Fallen Heroes= SAME Thing!

My husband served Honorably in the U.S. Army for 23 Years, Including the Vietnam & Desert Storm theaters.

My Father served in World War II. He died in 2003 at the VA Hospital in Columbia, SC.

I have 2 Uncles who also served in the U.S. Military. Of whom one was Badly Injured & had to have part of his leg Amputated.

I have several Cousins who served in the U.S. Military.


My Youngest Son & his Fiancee' are now Both Serving in the U.S. Army.

My Son's Fiancee' has a Degree in Elementary Education but was unable to secure a Teaching Job in North Carolina due to Budget Cuts.

The Next time you wish to Criticize Fallen Soldiers & Veterans.....


Unless You have ever Served in the U.S. Military, you don't know what you are talking about!

You can't Experience the Life of a Soldier just from reading a Book!

Peace My Brother.

Statement from Chris Hayes

On Sunday, in discussing the uses of the word "hero" to describe those members of the armed forces who have given their lives, I don't think I lived up to the standards of rigor, respect and empathy for those affected by the issues we discuss that I've set for myself. I am deeply sorry for that.

As many have rightly pointed out, it's very easy for me, a TV host, to opine about the people who fight our wars, having never dodged a bullet or guarded a post or walked a mile in their boots.

Of course, that is true of the overwhelming majority of our nation's citizens as a whole.

One of the points made during Sunday's show was just how removed most Americans are from the wars we fight, how small a percentage of our population is asked to shoulder the entire burden and how easy it becomes to never read the names of those who are wounded and fight and die, to not ask questions about the direction of our strategy in Afghanistan, and to assuage our own collective guilt about this disconnect with a pro-forma ritual that we observe briefly before returning to our barbecues.

But in seeking to discuss the civilian-military divide and the social distance between those who fight and those who don't, I ended up reinforcing it, conforming to a stereotype of a removed pundit whose views are not anchored in the very real and very wrenching experience of this long decade of war.

And for that I am truly sorry.
