This speech tells it like it is. War veterans have come to study, reflect, and understand their experience in light of what they know, what they’ve heard, what they’ve seen, and the contradictions between what was told to them and what the realities are. Despite this, thousands of others choose to ignore–to REFUSE and to cling to blind patriotism (American nationalism) which is racist, sexist, and terribly misinformed to say the least.
This veteran’s speech in this video is moving in its awakened and clear, reasoned and studied, angry and compassionate expression of a truth above propaganda, speaking truths.
