Yesterday, on national television, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes said the following:
I feel uncomfortable about the word hero because it seems to me it is so rhetorically proximate to justification for more war.
In other words, if we just didn’t call our fallen soldiers “heros”, all wars would cease.
But, more to the point. I wonder if Chris Hayes met the fathers of Sgt. Felix DelGreco, or Lcpl. Lawrence Philippon he would tell them that he was”‘uncomfortable” with calling their sons heroes.
Thanks to HA for directing us to video.
