Filmmaker, Pundit, and overall disgusting human being, Michael Moore tweeted yesterday that April 30th should be a national holiday because it is the day that the Vietnam War ended.
“We lost the Vietnam War 42yrs ago today. Should be a nat’l holiday, a commitment to never make same mistake again.”
Moore’s comment got the conservatives on Twitter pissed off and deservedly so:
Vietnam, as most Americans know, was a proxy war fought between the United States and the Soviet Union in the nation of Vietnam. 58,220 Americans were killed in action over and thousands more were maimed fighting against communism and for freedom. The war lasted for almost 20 years and was the first real military loss that the United States has faced.
Instead of honoring those fallen, brave men, Moore would rather use them as a political talking point to attack President Trump. Moore’s comment is certainly in response to our actions in both Syria, but more importantly North Korea. We seem to be on the precipice of military action and while I understand not wanting to enter a full-scale conflict, this isn’t the way to express that feeling.
Michael Moore should recant his statement and apologize to those brave Americans that died for our liberty in Vietnam. His words were truly deplorable.
