Won’t let it become another snowflake opinion

Posted

To the Editor:
A southern California teacher – a true oxymoron – Gregory Salcido, has taken it upon himself to call members of the military “the lowest of the low.” He has joined the ranks of Jane Fonda, who also detested the American military while paying homage to the Vietnamese military. Now, there are millions of others in this nation who feel the same way, including a few of our more recent presidents.
We all are entitled to our opinion and we all have freedom of speech.
Having stated that, I believed I was also entitled to speak my opinions without being attacked by the left. Unfortunately, that was not to be the case. I have been called a racist, an idiot, a deplorable and now the lowest of the low. Back in 2010 I wrote a book describing my combat experience in Iraq. I foolishly told the truth and was attacked by those who did not like the truth and labeled me many names including “a small man who wrote a small book.”
Now, I have no malice towards these people, but let us all take a moment and remember that the men and women this imbecile has viciously labeled are children of other Americans. They are fathers, mothers, sons and daughters of people that this undesirable would be unworthy to shine their shoes and yet no one has the courage to speak up for those who have not hidden under a desk because they are cowards and traitors. I will, and anyone who has served in the military should be ashamed to let this just become another snowflakes opinion.

Thank you for your service, Mr. Cervone. As to the teacher in California, please keep in mind that, occasionally, liberals accidentally stumble into temporary moments of honesty.
