I am a veteran. I absolutely support the right of any citizen to speak their truth. That's one reason I joined the Army, to protect our freedoms. I am appalled by the likes of Crenshaw. I knew soldiers like him while I served and did everything in my power to dilute their influence while I was serving. I continue to vote and participate in politics to dilute - if I can't extinguish - the power and influence of his ilk. You did an outstanding job dealing with the purported active duty caller, as usual, sticking to facts and squashing lies. Well done!

Crenshaw, a former SEAL, absolutely lacks the courage to stand up against this terrorism. Or, for him, the terrorism is the means to an end. He’s not in office for anyone other than himself.

He's just a total shitbird IMO. Like that wounded Marine who conspired with Steve Bannon to steal a lot cash from gullible rubes who raised money to build a border war.

All these degenerates just trying to “get theirs”.

And yet the cultists like that clown from Wyoming want us to treat veterans who are corrupt like Crenshaw, or were war criminals like the one pardoned by the orange bastard, as if they were sacred cows.

The right-wing in this country are throwing a shit-fit about this one Olympic athlete like they did with the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico city when two track & field athletes from Team USA raised their fists on the podium in protest over racial injustice. Funny how things haven't changed.

Crenshaw does not walk on water because he served in the military. Many have served and others have died in service. If he thinks terrorism is OK because someone is waving a flag, then he needs to get his head examined. His just another GOP hypocrite.

A lot the veterans that the right-wing give praise to are the same ones who laugh and giggle while reminiscing about their glory days of killing brown people. Now those sick fucks are trying to start a civil war so they can put that orange conman back in office. Since a lot of them believe in the lies of fundie x-tianity, it doesn't surprise me that they both love killing anyone who isn't them and fall for the BS of a con-artist.

You have my total support,Mike! I have a few friends that don’t understand taking a knee or any other peaceful protest against this country. They have swallowed the Fox line word for word. Thanks for explaining it to Lou.

Thanks also for your candor.

Scary to realize there are millions of people who live in a different reality where the election was stolen from Trump. The gaslighting continues in the GOP and on media outlets OAN and Fox, etc. This isn't going away soon. Wonderful to hear your passion in standing up to these crazy deluded callers Michelangelo!

I was in the military and I think every one of those terrorists that attacked the Capitol and especially the people that instigated that attack (particularly T****) should be tried and sent to prison for their treason.

Athletes and anyone else have every right under the 1st amendment to peacefully protest. The military defends their right to do so.
