As in Moscow, U.S.S.R. In 1968. Daddybear is more gentle than I would be:
I've got some news for you professor. While you were enjoying cheap vodka and all the Communist literature you could carry, your hosts were slaughtering innocent Czech civilians for no other reason than the fact that they were 23 years ahead of the Soviet Union in figuring out that Communism was a load of crap. I'm not going to attack your stance on CARE packages too much. Honestly, if I was deployed, I wouldn't ask you to piss in my mouth if my teeth were on fire.No doubt Professor Avery has the right to say this, and worse. And I also have the right to say that not only is he an idiot (useful version), and that his drivel is of such a shockingly low caliber as to be boring. Sadly, his type is a dime a dozen in his generation.
But someone who fits the textbook definition of "useful idiot" ought to spend a little less time spouting the pseudo-pacifist dreck that was fed to the American left during the Vietnam era and more time doing a little introspection on whether or not everything he believes about people's motivation to serve their country was absolute bullcrap thought up during an alcoholic haze in a dorm room a couple of miles from Red Square.
But he's a Yale lawyer. Dude, you're the 1%.
You have kids taking on $50,000 of debt to be "educated" by this guy. He's a great argument right there to de-fund the Universities. Do it for teh childrenz™.
