There is nothing worse than liberal entitlement. But unfortunately, it permeates our current societal culture. And it doesn’t appear to be going anywhere anytime soon. Yet another example of this insidiousness has just popped up once again. A man named Hunter Green has a son who serves in the military.
Green shared a very sad story via his social media Facebook page. He described an incident his son had to deal with when going to the store. He said his son,
“told me about an incident in the grocery store he stopped at yesterday on his way home from the base. He said that ahead of several people in front of him stood a woman dressed in a burkha (sic). He said when she got to the cashier she loudly remarked about the U.S. flag lapel pin the cashier wore on her smock. The cashier reached up and touched the pin, and said proudly, ‘Yes, I always wear it and probably always will.’”
The woman wearing the burka did not care for his response so she,
“asked the cashier when she was going to stop bombing her countrymen, explaining that she was Iraqi. A gentleman standing behind my son stepped forward. Putting his arm around my son’s shoulders and nodding towards my son, he said in a calm and gentle voice to the Iraqi woman: ‘Lady, hundreds of thousands of men and women like this young man have fought and died so that YOU could stand here, in MY country and accuse a check-out cashier of bombing YOUR countrymen.
It is my belief that had you been this outspoken in YOUR own country, we wouldn’t need to be there today. But, hey, if you have now learned how to speak out so loudly and clearly, I’ll gladly buy you a ticket and pay your way back to Iraq so you can straighten out the mess in YOUR country that you are obviously here in MY country to avoid.’ Everyone within hearing distance cheered!”
Every once and a while you hear these ridiculous stories of Muslims or immigrants doing such completely inappropriate things like this. It is always baffling when it happens but not at all surprising considering the former administration encouraged this behavior. What this man said perfectly encapsulates how anyone should respond in an incident like this.
She said those things only because she lives in the United States. Where she comes from she would have been killed or jailed for saying those things. Yet she has the audacity to criticize the American military. That is the ultimate form of hypocrisy and entitlement.
