The internet sucks.
Seriously. Never before in the history of man has there been a place where more whiny, crybaby, uninformed imbeciles can get together and act like they know what the hell they are talking about.
Ever been to CHUD.COM? It’s similar to Harry Knowles’ Ain’t it Cool News. Devin Faraci is one of their main writers over there (he may be involved with running the site as well). Today he started Memorial day off by posting the following to his Twitter account (@devincf):
“This Memorial Day my thoughts are with the millions of civilians killed by soldiers. about 6 hours ago via Twitter for iPhone”
It’s been a while since I got “douche chills” from reading a “Tweet” so I replied to him with the following:
“@devincf wow. You just BAIT all day huh? Sad Devin. about 5 hours ago”
Because lets be honest – THAT is what he was doing. He was hoping to get some reaction from folks who have the audacity to respect the soldiers that protect this country. You can have opinions and still be respectful. I am often reminded of Jack Nicholson screaming “You can’t handle the truth!” in A FEW GOOD MEN when one of these self important know it all folks start spouting off.
Freedom is not free. On Memorial Day I would imagine you would want to give thanks to the soldiers who made it possible for you to live in a country where you can make a living writing insignificant reviews about insignificant movies.
Yes Devin. Civilians die in war. It is a horrible tragedy. War is hell for everyone involved and should be avoided at all costs. But when it cannot be avoided you should be grateful that there are people who are willing to protect you.
If you really cared so much about it you would do something more than issue a 140 character advertisement for your disingenuous social consciousness.
Just in case you are wondering how Devin Faraci chose to respond to me – he blocked me from following him.
Like THAT was necessary. LOL.
