VIRGINIA’S FINAL REPUBLICAN US SENATE DEBATE: UPDATE

Update: Well, I embarrassed myself.  When I got the email below from Delegate Bob Marshall, I was pleased. I had thought the debate was suppose to be yesterday, but the email I received it this morning clearly indicated otherwise. Because I wanted to listen to the debate, I too readily accepted what seemed the obvious conclusion. Unfortunately, when I tried to listen to the debate, I ran into a problem. Except for an advertisement (can’t get enough of them  🙄  ) there was nothing to listen to.

So what happened? To find out I took a second look at Marshall’s email. Apparently, Marshall put out the email yesterday. The email does show in the upper righthand corner that it was transmitted yesterday. Unfortunately, I did not receive it until today. I guess somewhere along the line a server held it up.

Here is a reminder from Delegate Bob Marshall.

Final US Senate Debate in Hours. Watch Bob at 6:30 Tonight.

Dear Friends,

  1. Here is a Memorial Day Outrage coming of course from MSNBC:

    ‘Come Up With a More Neutral Term’: MSNBC Panel Debates Using the Word ‘Hero’ To Describe Fallen Soldiers

    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.

    Chris Hayes introduces the issue:

    “I feel uncomfortable about the word ‘hero’ because it seems to me that it is so rhetorically proximate to justifications for more war. Um, and, I don’t want to obviously desecrate or disrespect memory of anyone that’s fallen, and obviously there are individual circumstances in which there is genuine, tremendous heroism, you know, hail of gunfire, rescuing fellow soldiers, and things like that. But it seems to me that we marshal this word in a way that is problematic. But maybe I’m wrong about that…”
    John McWhorter of the New York Daily News continued: “…I would almost rather not say ‘hero’ and come up with a more neutral term…I share your
    discomfort with those words because they are argumentational strategies in themselves, often without wanting to be.”

    Michelle Goldberg of the Daily Beast, who recently compared Ann Romney to Hitler and Stalin on the same network, added: “There are people who are genuine heroes, but the kind of implication is that death is what makes you a hero, you know as opposed to any kind of affirmative act or moral act…”

    After reassuring that there is honor and valor in the military, Goldberg said: “It’s more just that, it’s a way of ennobling sacrifices that have a lot of nobility for the individual, but to say that someone kind of died heroically suggests that they died worthily, or that they died in the pursuit of a worthy endeavor…” [Emphasis added]

    1. Some people need to read the Gettysburg Address. Lincoln honored the fallen dead on both sides. Lincoln did not agree with the South about slavery or succession, but he honored the nobility in their sacrifice. Both Blue and Gray fought heroically, and they did so on behalf of their people. Without such a love of duty, honor and country, there can be no People worthy of being called a people.

      Anyway, ignore msnbc. They are trying to boost ratings by being hateful and inflammatory. What they say is not worth your time. It is who and what we are for that matters, not who we are against.
