I don’t doubt that something unsavory will pop up about Matthis Chiroux, the media’s latest conscientious objector poster boy, simply because something unsavory always seems to be lurking around these keys (not that the MSM lets its readers know). So that’s not what interests me. What caught me was the first two sentences in the AFP story reporting on Chiroux conscientious objector status:
Matthis Chiroux is the kind of young American US military recruiters love.
“I was from a poor, white family from the south, and I did badly in school,” the now 24-year-old told AFP.
Yup — that’s our military: poor and stupid Southern crackers, leavened, I’m sure, by poor and stupid urban blacks. It’s amazing that the military isn’t one giant race war run by idiots. If only it weren’t for the truth about the military’s real composition.
With regards to the AFP, I can only say what Daffy Duck would say: “You’re dethpicable.”
UPDATE: SSG Dave left a link here to a post he did on Chiroux’s media stunt. I focused solely on the media angle but, had I taken the time and given the matter thought, I would have said everything SSG Dave, only not with such passion. He is, after all, serving in our military, while I’m just sitting in the ‘burbs opining about the military. You should read his screed.
