Merry Christmas to you all!

Well, almost all. I will not extend my wishes for a joyful holiday season to the MAGA idiots who insist on dishonoring our men and women in uniform by photoshopping images of Cadet Bonespurs, who desperately sought and received medical deferments as a young bunko-artist during the Vietnam draft years, and posting them on social media.

And neither, apparently, will singer songwriter Tommy Edwin, whose father was an authentic American hero who shot down twelve German and Italian aircraft during the American campaign to liberate North Africa from the fascists, and rounded off his career by flying a combined 512 combat missions in Tunisia, Korea and Vietnam.

Hereโ€™s the Tweet:

And, a little history about his brave father, Levi R. Chase:

โ€œIn the midst of World War II, the skies over Tunisia became a battleground where skilled pilots soared through the clouds, engaging in intense aerial combat. Among these aviators was U.S. Flying Ace Levi R. Chase, whose remarkable achievements and unique form of iconography captured the spirit of the times. This article delves into the details of Levi R. Chase’s exploits in Tunisia in 1943, exploring the dynamics of aerial warfare, the challenges faced by pilots, and the symbolism behind the Swastikas proudly displayed on his aircraft.

As the global conflict raged on, Tunisia emerged as a crucial theater of war in 1943. Allied forces, including the United States, were engaged in a fierce campaign against Axis powers in North Africa. The deserts of Tunisia became a strategic battleground where air superiority played a pivotal role in determining the outcome of ground operations. In this dynamic and perilous environment, U.S. Flying Ace Levi R. Chase distinguished himself as a skilled pilot with a penchant for aerial combat.

Levi R. Chase’s journey to becoming a Flying Ace was marked by dedication, training, and a deep sense of duty. Born into a world engulfed by war, Chase felt the call to serve his country and took to the skies to defend freedom. Trained in the intricacies of aerial combat, he honed his skills as a pilot, preparing for the challenges that awaited him over the skies of Tunisia.โ€

โ€œDedication, training and a deep sense of dutyโ€ – attributes The Orange Ogre possesses exactly none of, and still his subservient MAGA cultists insist on posting altered photos of the coward lookin like General George Patton.

Mr. Edwinโ€™s followers also had a lot to say:


Undoubtedly.


Yep.


Exactly.

Thatโ€™s what a real patriot looks lie.

No, I cannot wish the MAGA brainwashed, but I can hope Santa left the gifts on common sense and decency under their tree last night.

  1. I always thought the WWII generation would absolutely detest tRump. I was shocked to see photos of people who look like they are about the right age, included in groups of MAGAs. My guess is that they never served in the military. Thank you for posting this piece.

    • There just aren’t many left. After all anyone who was 20 in 1940 is over 100 now. My own mother was a child in England in WW2, and she’s nearly 90. The Trumpists are boomers by and large, born with the benefits of the post-war economy and their military service in the still unfinished Korean war and the failed imperialism of Vietnam, wars lacking the moral imperative of WW2. (but, of course, in which most service people performed honorably despite the muddy ethical backing.)

    • Living in a trailer, smoking and drinking, while someone on TV tells them what’s in the Bible apparently ages them. Or maybe it’s all the empty space, where their brains should be?

    • The Boomers are my generation, not WW II. Despite what people think the anti-war people of the 1960s and early 1970s weren’t actually anti-war as much as anti-draft. Hippies were a tiny percentage too. And many of the anti-draft types got M.B.A.s as soon as Nam.was over. They just didn’t want to fight. There were a lot of Young Republicans.

  2. MAGAts photo-shopping Traitor Tot as a soldier dishonors All of those who really served! My father (who passed in 2018 at the age of 96) served as Machinist Mate First Class aboard the USS Florence Nightingale (AP-70) in both the Atlantic and Pacific. He detested Traitor Tot and all of his fascist cronies! He could tell fascism when he saw it. He said many times “I didn’t fight in WWII so we could have a fascist in the white house!”

  3. I’ve been calling them child killing nazis because that’s what they are. Five uncles fought in WW2. My dad a Korean war vet. Another uncle an original green beret wounded in Nam. Cousins in Nam. I was in the Navy. Somewhere AT THIS MOMENT someone isn’t home with their family for Christmas because they are stationed somewhere guarding us. Thanks for reminding us the VOTE has come at a high price. LET’S USE IT TO SEND THESE NAZIS TO JAIL…TO HELL…WHERE EVER! TO SAVE OUR CHILDREN!!!
