(MAMASAN'S HOOTCH)--There is a new trend in journalism to separate the veterans into various discrimination groups. Take, for instance, a report in USA Today about a new action group that dropped by Senator McCain's office with a box full of signatures urging the war hero to dump the GOP candidate for the White House--
Before that, six veterans, including a Muslim veteran from McCain’s home state of Arizona, praised the former Vietnam prisoner of war as “courageous” and a “man of honor” in pleading with him to reject Trump.
This is an extension of the big-deal flap between the candidate and the Muslim dad who's son had been killed in a war that the Democratic candidate endorsed.
Now the media finds it convenient to separate Muslim war heroes from the rest of the bunch, as if they had contributed more to the field operations, command and control, or other matters. For some reason, "Muslim veterans" are more important than plain old, Oklahoma bred kids who could barely shave and found themselves over in Fallujah pinned down by sniper fire in a cemetery.
The trend is an offshoot of the media itself, where the rank and file is constantly bashing each other for sexual harassment, gender inequality, racial divisiveness, and lifestyle preference. That makes it acceptable to pit one veteran against the other according to his background, ethnic origin and, or, allegiance.
Not too long ago, a Muslim soldier shot up a Texas army base. Was he immediately condemned by the media? Negative. It was the same old Arab apology line and a trip to the shrink to see just exactly what the problem was. A bad guy Muslim US Army soldier, they really exist, but don't tell the media. All they want is the good guy Muslim US Army soldier who has more credibility when it comes to signing a petition or having the old man hop up at the convention podium and demonize the opponent.
There is no discrimination in the military, it has made strides in allowing women and gays to be a part of the fighting capacity of the United States. The current Secretary of the Army is openly gay. He was born on a hot summer day, at least hot in Viet Nam in 1968, when soldiers from all over the United States and from all walks of life were locked in a bitter struggle against a formidable enemy, in which Senator McCain sacrificed a greater part of his youth locked in the Hanoi Hilton.
If you want to discriminate, no veteran is in the same league as Senator McCain in telling him what to do, unless they have done what he has done in the service of his country.
