In another example of liberal-think that is a mirror image of the “No Place In The Public Square” comment by liberal commentator Robert Beckel, Washington Post editorial columnist Charles Lane doesn’t believe military people should have a say in the public political arena either.
In discussing the Navy Seals political ad, Chuck Lane said this . . .
“I don’t believe military and intelligence people, even retireds, should have a major role in politics.”
The statement begins at 01:04 into the video.
In just the last two weeks, the Left doesn’t approve of, successful business people (Bob Beckel) or people in the military, active or retired, or people in the intelligence community (Chuck Lane), having a say in the public political discourse.
Both times, Beckel and Lane, were on a FOX News program. And both times the statements went unchallenged. Granted that those statements were not the topic of the discussion and would have changed the topic had they been challenged. So I can half understand why they were left to fly on by.
Seems to me that the Left’s desire to squelch speech and opinions that they don’t like, is a story in and of itself.
