“I feel uncomfortable about the word ‘hero’ 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 the memory of anyone that’s fallen, and obviously there are individual circumstances in which there is genuine, tremendous heroism, you know, 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…”
Ann Coulter remark aside, the commenter in the video above is dead on in his assessment of Chris Hayes.
Chris Hayes has since back pedaled, in that way that Progressives often do with a half-hearted written apology statement on his web page.
TIDBIT: In June 2011, Chris Hayes referred to his parents, one of whom was trained as a community organizer “for people who had trained with [Saul] Alinsky” as heroic figures?
According to an AlterNet puff piece on Chris Hayes (excerpted below),
…Today his parents both work for the City of New York: Geri, a former schoolteacher, works for the NYC Department of Education, and Roger, after many years of community organizing, does health advocacy work in East Harlem for the NYC Department of Health. His younger brother is the Nevada state director for Organizing For America, the grassroots group built from the lists of the 2008 Obama campaign.
‘My parents are totally amazing, heroic figures,’ Hayes says…
…Hayes found the path to political journalism by taking the long route (which he completed at a sprinter’s pace), studying neither journalism nor politics in college. He met his wife while attending Brown, where both sat on the board of a student-run black-box theater called the Production Workshop. They were 19 years old. Though a philosophy major, Hayes says, “I did a lot of theater. That’s mostly what I did. I directed in plays, I acted in plays, I wrote plays….
Two days after they were married in 2007, he and Shaw moved to Washington, D.C., where she commenced her clerkship with Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens. (She’s now associate counsel in the White House Counsel’s office.)…
Not only is Chris Hayes a moron, shill and an elitist degenerate for MSNBC/Media Matters and the White House, Hayes like everyone else in the Progressive movement does not get it.
Without the valiant men and women who have given of themselves so selflessly, Hayes and his merry crew of Progressives would have choked long ago on the backfiring of that hammer and sickle to which they have declared allegiance.
Instead, this Marxist sob chokes on the word “hero”? I am appalled.
Even if Hayes butched up tenfold to one-third that of Rachel Maddow, he could never withstand more than ten seconds of what our HEROES endure daily on the battlefield and away from home.
One who gives so much, in my book, is not only courageous but the tallest of men and women, i.e., a hero.
As for Chris Hayes, MSNBC, Media Matters, Barack Obama and comrades, shove your test balloons where the sun does not shine.
UPDATE: Earlier today, Chris Hayes was ripped to shreds on the NBC Today Show for being such a disrespectful arse. Of course, Matt Lauer, another pompous elitist bastard, attempted to give Hayes cover.
