America's Fighting Men And Women?I want HER humpin' the 60. All 105 pounds of her. And give her a couple of extra ammo cans while you're at it.
If I have to hear the mythical phrase America's Fighting Men and Women
one more time, I think I'll actually vomit... or at least get a wee bit queasy. You know, like that feeling after drinking Old Milwaukee.
But anyhow, I recall a couple of years ago up in NYC, Mayor Bloomberg was speaking at the Nautical Museum, USS Intrepid, and he was gushing on and on about "the brave men and women
who fought and died about the Intrepid", etc, etc, ad nauseum. I hate to tell Hizzoner this, but no women ever died aboard the Intrepid. Why? Simple... no women ever served aboard her, that's why. PC run amok.
And at a Veterans Day gathering at the Nautical Museum, USS North Carolina, some city official made the same screw-up as Bloomberg... spewing the same nonsense. "Brave man and women who fought and died aboard the North Carolina". Sheesh, one doesn't have to be a military historian to know that no women ever served aboard warships during the Second World War. Yet again, PC run amok.
First off, there are no "fighting women", with the exception of a extremely small number of token pilots. With the emphasis on the word "token". But I digress, in the history of this nation, well over half a million men have died in direct combat with the enemy. How many women? Less than one hundred. And the vast majority of those ladies were support personnel who simply were in the wrong place at the wrong time. And damn few were "fighting", that is if one accepts feminist myths about a handful of women who disguised themselves as men during The War Between The States (3 total. 1 Union, 2 Confederate). But like I said, those are unsubstantiated myths, but the rad-femm's love stating such as if were fact.
But anyhow, were the substantantiated combat deaths of those hundred ladies just as tragic and equally patriotic as those of men? Absolutely... no question whatsoever. But here's the point I'm getting at; you can't simply lump five hundred thousand with less than one hundred.
If we are going to continue to use the phrase fighting men and women
, then we damn better start talking about the brave WHITE and Black soldiers who served in the Buffalo Soldier units of the old American West. After all, every Officer in the Buffalo Soldier units were White. Whites served in the Buffalo Soldiers, but we never hear of them... I wonder why?
While we're at it... let's throw the same kudos to the brave WHITE and Japanese-American (Nisei) soldiers who served in the 442 Regimental Combat Team and 100th Battalion in World War II. After all, most of the Officers in the Nisei units were White. Whites served in the Nisei units, but we never hear of them... I wonder why?
Here's why we rarely, and should only rarely
, hear about the Whites who served with the above mentioned units; the Blacks in the Buffalo Soldiers, and the Nisei in the 442d and 100th did the vast... and I mean VAST, majority of the fighting and dying. They're the ones who deserve the lion's share of the recognition and the glory that comes with it.
...and the same applies to the over half a million men who died in combat for this nation. And besides, no real Catholic man would even dream about letting his wife, daughter, sister or mother do his fighting for him while he can still draw breath.
