Seriously? On a day in which we honor those who fought and died, in a country where many young men and women choose to enlist to defend freedom, MSNBC engages in a debate about whether fallen soldiers deserve to be described as "heroic." Utterly ridiculous--but it is MSNBC, after all.
From The Blaze:
MSNBC is not known as a network that sympathizes with the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan, but this Memorial Day weekend, rather than put aside their political differences to salute our men and women in uniform, a panel on Chris Hayes’ show instead engaged in a debate over how to refer to our fallen soldiers.
Specifically, the panel debated over using words like “hero” because– in their words– the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan aren’t “worthy” causes.
