D-Day At 70

Brookly Eagle June 6 1944

“There is one great thing that you men will all be able to say after this war is over and you are home once again. You may be thankful that twenty years from now when you are sitting by the fireplace with your grandson on your knee and he asks you what you did in the great World War II, you WON’T have to cough, shift him to the other knee and say, ‘Well, your Granddaddy shoveled shit in Louisiana.’ No, Sir, you can look him straight in the eye and say, ‘Son, your Granddaddy rode with the Great Third Army and a Son-of-a-Goddamned-Bitch named Georgie Patton!'” — General George S. Patton, Jr, June 5, 1944

UPDATE: Obama Chomps On Gum During D-Day Anniversary Event…Update: France Not Happy (Weasel Zippers)

    Whenever I think of these great American heroes, now lost to history mostly because you can’t read about them in gender studies class, or black women transgender studies, looking down upon what America has become, I imagine that they are over in the corner puking their guts out.

    I have always been “nutso” for Georgie Patton! We could always rely upon him to speak openly, truthfully, honestly & w/out currying favor from anyone. I wish we had more Georgies in the military & in the gov’t & in the judicial. Some brave people who would speak honestly & w/out fear. I often wonder how the great George Patton would handle all of this PC crap that has infiltrated our society.

    It’s disrespectful enough in America to be chomping gum at an event like that. If someone chews gum even at a café in Germany or France, someone will inevitably say what a lowclass jerk he/she is. Does Obama have NO PROTOCOL ADVISORS? wow.
