Robert Sheer, writing at the Huffing-and-puffing Post, breaks out the tired and insulting “General Betray Us” shtick again in regards to Gen. David Petraeus.
You have to understand that Sheer is nothing more than a bitter old hippie stuck in the 1960′s. Between 1964 and 1969, he was a Vietnam correspondent, managing editor and editor in chief of Ramparts magazine. Sheer never served in Vietnam, he just went there to undermine the US effort and to help spread the North Vietnamese propaganda.
Right Wing News perfectly sums up Sheer’s latest smear against Gen. Petraeus — a more honorable and better man by far than Sheer could ever dream of being:
I think you’d have to go all the way back to the Civil War to find a time in our county’s history when so many Americans hate and despise an American general for winning a war that Americans are engaged in.
Except in this case, instead of Southerners understandably hating Sherman or Northerners understandably hating Lee, we have callow liberals who detest Petraeus for winning a war that they’re desperate to lose for purely political reasons. It’s just despicable…
Yep. It turns my stomach to watch the Left actually root and hope for an American defeat in Iraq. Question their patriotism? No — because they simply don’t have any.
