From Billy's post:
"I won’t support their clear support for radicalism and crapping on this country. It’s not perfect, but a lot of men and women have died to keep us free and I won’t support a company that hates the freedoms we have"
From my response:
"However, I'm not unhinged over it. I'm not going around saying stupid and ridiculous things like MARVEL HATES OUR FREEDOM, because that's ridiculous. I'd sound deranged and hysterical."
Was that the part you found insulting?
What does it add to the conversation, exactly, for someone to come here and broadcast their politics? Especially in such a derp way?
There have been several people and groups in the past few years who have been accused of "disrespecting the troops" or "hating our freedoms". In every case it is shown NOT to be the case, so I'm too sick of it to tolerate it from new guys who come along at random. I was a troop. My friends and co-workers were and are the troops. This performative accusation about "disrespecting the troops" seems always to come from the same place, the pulpit of the American right-wing media and it's fans. That's a bad place. Those people never did anything for us troops beyond an occasional photo op for themselves. It's just an accusation meant to further the divide.
I doubt that it's a coincidence that Billy posted his complaints the same day that FOX News ran a segment complaining about Ta-Nehisi Coates' work on Captain America.
I officially retired from the Navy 2 years ago, after 21 years and 4 months. I know a lot more about our country, history, and military than whatever the MAGA crowd is learning from Fox and OAN.
So, I don't give the Billies any regard when they come around peddling their grievances, fishing for validation, and trying to recruit like minded individuals. I might give them a response, though.
