Listen Up, All You Crybabies!


I have to admit, “jackwagon” is now one of my favorite words. It came into my vocabulary courtesy of R. Lee Ermey via the great series of Geico commercials in which a “former Drill Sergeant make[s] a terrible therapist.”

Here then is the former Drill Sergeant himself, in an appearance from earlier in the month at a Toys 4 Tots benefit, giving his opinion about President Obama. Warning: it’s not for crybabies!

So let’s just let Obama and his crew chug on over to mamby-pamby land, shall we, while we start to take back our nation. With guys like R. Lee on our side, how can we lose?

    Note: Eremy has since apologized for his remarks at that event. Click here to read the text of the apology.

    I’m not surprised… he was at a Marine Sponsored function (Toys for Tots). That was neither the time nor place to make such a statement, even if we agree with the sentiment. His words sounded as if he was encouraging a military coup.

    It goes beyond free speech when he addresses a mostly military audience by saying, “…So I think we should rise up and we should stop this administration from what they’re doing because they’re destroying this country…”

    I couldn’t agree more with his statement or his position. However, to use THAT specific platform to make that statement was inappropriate at best. In short: Right message, wrong soap box.
    Given the event, I believe both the Marines AND the Toys for Tots administration were due an apology. And Ermey quickly realized his error and has stepped up and done the right thing in offering an apology without waiting for an uproar of criticism. He did it for the right reason… it was simply a bad judgment call, pure and simple.

    That said, I’d stand behind or beside Ermey at just about any other kind of event if he said that. It’s just too bad Glenn Beck didn’t invite him to speak at his rally in Washington, DC this past fall, but Beck wanted to avoid that kind of controversy. A shame, really, because that speech at HIS rally would have meant a lot more. I mean the press trashed the rally ANYWAY, so it might as well had an R. Lee Ermey moment.
