The NY Slimes Attacks Veterans by Calling them Murderers
The NY Slimes wants you to believe that the brave men and women returning home after protecting our great nation from harm are evil murderers wreaking havoc across the United States. It is shameful that rather than applaud our soldiers, the NY Slimes would rather manipulate data and make spurious correlations to degrade our brave veterans.
Thankfully, there are vocal veterans and diligent Americans who are willing to take the time to expose the NY Slimes for the anti-American and anti-veteran propaganda rag that it is. According to Andy Soltis of the New York Post, despite the NY Slimes assertion that veterans are committing an overwhelming majority of murders in our country, actual data shows that the murder rate of returning veterans is only one-fifth of that of young Americans who have not served our country.
Unfortunately, the NY Slimes cares less about the truth and more about denigrating our veterans. The pro-troop group Move America Forward called the article "slander." "It's obvious that The New York Times has an agenda of undermining the missions of our troops in the war on terror, so much so that they are willing to resort to demonstrably false statistics to support their anti-troop bias," said the group's chairman, Melanie Morgan.
I would invite the editor’s and publishers of the NY Slimes to visit all the American Legion Posts, the Veteran’s of Foreign Wars meetings, Vietnam Veterans of America chapters and the newly formed Members of Modern Warfare gatherings and explain their findings to all us veterans.
The Patriots want to give a special thank you to the NY Post and Mr. Andy Soltis for doing the story.
