Just so you don’t think you’re losing your eyesight let me repeat that military veterans are to blame for the recent rash of riots across America. It was only a matter of time before we got to the bottom of the problem. First it was police brutality, then it was no jobs and “income inequality.” But we owe a debt of gratitude to CNN anchor Broke Baldwin who had the courage to come forward and offer the real truth about the matter. Incredibly, she actually has the gall to blame returning military veterans who have come home and joined local police and sheriffs’ departments.
As Breitbart reports, “In a pathetic suck-up interview with Democrat Congressman Elijah Cummins, Baldwin never once had the moral courage to ask the failed Baltimore City congressman if the left-wing policies ushered in by a half-century of a Democrat monopoly in Baltimore might have something to do with the city’s ills. Instead, she said of young military veterans who become police officers, “I love our nation’s veterans, but some of them are coming back from war, they don’t know the communities, and they are ready to do battle.”
This comment may be one of the worst smears against veterans I have ever heard. Actually it reminds me of the days when returning Vietnam veterans were spit on and called killers and murderers.
“Essentially, what Baldwin said to the world was, “Don’t hire veterans! They’re too damaged to be trusted with authority.”“We’re back to the Vietnam-era where leftists smear our heroes to cover up the real problems. CNN wants us to believe unstable veterans are the problem in Baltimore, not unstable families.”
While I have zero experience being a TV news anchor, I do have some experience with police work and police officers. I spent twenty-seven years working in the law enforcement field and some of the finest people I ever met in that field were veterans.
Now, Baldwin has since tried to walk back those comments via Twitter, saying she only repeated what other people have said to her, but the question is, will she apologize on air? Yeah, right.
