Stephen King Pulls a John Kerry

During the last election cycle John Kerry told students that it was important to get an education or you would end up in Iraq. This was obviously an insult to the troops but Kerry dismissed it as a botched joke. Perhaps he meant to tell a joke but the Freudian slip told his inner feelings. Given his total disregard for the Vietnam vets with whom he served, it is not hard to see why people believe he meant what he said.

Stephen King, the liberal author, has insulted our troops in a manner that is Kerryesque. King told people that it was important to learn to read and that if you could not read then your options were the “Army and Iraq, something like that. It’s not as bright.”

What this maggot said is that the Army is full of people who cannot read. The members of our military (he said Army but he meant all services) are not bright enough to read so they end up in in the military and places like Iraq.

I know a whole lot of people in the military and everyone I know can read. Most of the people I know can read and comprehend as well or better than Mr. king. Some of the people I know in the military have published technical work that required a bit more than for King to write fictional novels. Quite a few of the people I know in the military have written articles for magazines, newspapers and many have blogs. All of these require the ability to read and write. And while King thinks that people do not have to be as bright to get in the military, I would like to see him fly a plane or a helicopter. I would like to see Stephen King operate an M1 tank or a Patriot Missile battery. I would also like to see him perform the miracles our medical folks do.

Stephen King is a half witted liberal who has lived in a protected world where he can run around and discredit those with whom he disagrees. He is an ungrateful twit who has the freedom to say what he wants because of the men and women of the armed forces who protect our country and our way of life. Stephen King is not fit to carry the boots of any member of the military and all of them will always be a cut above him and his kind.

Mr. King, the members of our military are quite capable of reading and I am sure that many of them helped make you rich by buying and reading your books. However, if you believe that they are unable to read perhaps they should stop buying your literature and maybe they should stop selling it in the exchanges.

Interestingly Mr. King, you chose to insult our troops when none of them were around. Maybe we can get a few of them to go to your next book signing and see if you would be as forthright. Considering where you have your head, at least you will be able to read your own book when they get done with you.

    Add Stephen King to the ever-increasing listing of celebrities who I must avoid. I used to be a fan of his work, but his mouthing off in recent years is a turn-off. Do left wingers ever actually listen to what comes out of their mouths? King is wrong on about four different levels with one statement. It is a given that our troops are far more intelligent and qualified than what King believes, but where is it written that the ability to read (which is a fundamental skill) will allow you to “walk into a job”? I would hazard to guess that if all you offer an employer is the ability to read, you would be extremely lucky to be flipping burgers at McDonalds for a living (and I don’t mean to disparage burger-flipers). Somebody please give Stephen King a key to the door of the real world; he seems to be locked out.

    Another liberal whose fame & fortune has obfuscated his judgment. What qualifies Stephen King to assess the literacy of our troops? What does he know about them, anyway? Absolutely nothing, that’s what.

    I hate to say this but the irony of you bashing Stephen King with a link to buy his book “Wolves of the Cala” at the top and bottom of the article on your home page is just too funny.

    I’ve been a fan of his work for a long time, and I just wish celebrities, musicians, and authors would just keep their views to themselves. At least not get up on a damn pulpit and scream them to the world. They can have their opinions just like I can have mine, however its crap like this that makes it difficult to spend my hard earned dollars on their work even if I do enjoy it.

    I don’t care if he’s a liberal, like I said he can have his own personal views, but the unjustified bashing of our armed forces is a line you just don’t cross. One of the requirements for being in the military is a HS Diploma/GED and a pre-requisite of that is literacy. If someone obtains a Diploma without being literate its not the military’s failure but that of our school systems, teachers, and parents.
