Today’s edition of what did these muff protesters do today features a new low that they’ve sunk to – interrupting a 100 year World War 2 hero at an award’s ceremony in his honor. A turtle rider told me about this story yesterday and I couldn’t believe it was actually true. But it is:
Oregonlive – U.S. Navy veteran Dario Raschio was all smiles Saturday as he awaited a special honor from U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden, who joined him at Portland Community College’s Southeast Campus to present the 100-year-old with a handful of medals. “I feel I’m no hero,” said Raschio, dynamic and spry, before the event. “I don’t accept it as being a hero. I accept it as being a part of my job.” Shortly after Wyden began speaking, though, protesters erupted in the back of the room, shouting “hands-up, don’t shoot!” More than 100 pushed through the doors, banged on the windows from outside and hoisted signs. Raschio and his daughter, Pam Brown of Portland, had a front-row seat to the spectacle. Raschio’s smile faded. Raschio joined the Navy at the age of 27. He piloted observational planes, and was based on the USS Chester. He participated in five campaigns in the Pacific Theatre.One harrowing incident took place on Easter Sunday in 1944. He had been on a mission and took gunfire. When returning to the ship, his plane went down in the ocean and he figured that he and his passenger were likely to die in the water. A Navy destroyer came along a few hours later and rescued the pair, just as sharks were beginning to circle. He then revealed the location of an ammo dump they had viewed from the sky on a South Pacific island. The dump was destroyed. On Saturday, Raschio glossed over the incident. He seemed more concerned by the immediate action he was witnessing. As he grabbed the mic to speak, more shouts came from the back of the room, demanding the military exit from Iraq. The feisty centenarian quickly responded, “Give me a chance” which brought chuckles from the audience. He further chastised the shouters, saying “Let’s show a little respect for this occasion,” to which the crowd applauded. He accepted the medals on behalf of those who died in WWII and ended his short speech by saying, “God bless America. And you people that are here for a cause, whatever it might be—show respect to Sen. Wyden.”
Oh. My. God. What is that thing in the red scarf? How come there’s never any good looking protesters? I’m convinced at this point they’re just doing this because they’re miserable on account of being so disturbingly ugly. I mean, what was this girl’s plan when she got up and dressed herself in the morning? “I think I’m gonna go with the loose fighting black pants, toss on some sort of black skirt over them, throw on four more layers of black fabric, and top it off with a leather jacket, a fisherman’s hat, and five pounds of lipstick.” That’ll show the cops I mean business.
What else is there that’s left to say really? The protesters have proven time and time again that they don’t give a fuck about anyone but themselves. My question is, what’s up with America being a bunch of pussies about this? Since when did America become the land of the pushovers? Since when do we let the bad guys do something like this to an American hero? Are we the new France? We’re all literally being bullied by these terrorists. That’s exactly what they are. Terrorists. The public chose to honor this man that all of the protesters combined could never even come close to amounting to. And then the protesters hold the public hostage. And we’re all just sitting here like idiots taking it. Fuck that. When are people gonna start doing their American duty and start knocking these useless pieces of human garbage to the ground? You can’t breathe? Yea, that’s what your fortune cookie must’ve told you. These idiots do it because, a) they crave attention, and b) they don’t fear anything. Time to start punching these idiots in the face so they have something they can really complain about. Not like they can call the cops right? Boom. Problem solved.
