After decades of spewing shockingly ignorant leftist tripe, media mogul Ted Turner might have outdone himself.
Appearing on the network he founded — CNN — for an interview with fellow liberal Piers Morgan, the topic turned to a marked increase in suicide among America’s heroic servicemen and women.
Turner acknowledged that more soldiers “are dying now from suicide over there than are dying in combat,” prompting Morgan to understandably imply that the statistic is “shocking.”
Turner used another adjective to describe the tragic death of those tasked with preserving our freedom against foreign and domestic enemies.
“I think it’s good,” he said, completely dismissing any justifiable reason for military force and urging the country to “start acting enlightened.”
From a man who actively touted the benefits of North Korean despotism, one might not be surprised Turner is hostile against the forces of good. The fact that he would openly rejoice a distraught soldier’s tragic demise and the destruction of his or her family is completely inexcusable, though.
Leftists embrace death, destruction, and virtually anything that will advance their skewed worldview. Fellow liberals rarely, if ever, speak out against the vile filth that vermin like Turner espouse.
When a conservative dares to suggest that a developing human life should is sacred and should be protected, though, he is roundly bashed as an extremist.
I cannot think of a more extreme position than to root for the death of American soldiers. For that matter, I cannot think of a less extreme position than protecting the life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness of the most vulnerable among us.
