Can't belieeeeeeve this needs to be said

Having procured a video of Ward "little Eichmanns" Churchill saying that "fragging" (attempting to harm or kill an officer) is more "impactful" than conscientious objection, conservatives are twitching with delight at having found the ideal lefty strawman. Steve Gilliard responds: "Too bad [Ward Churchill's] an idiot. In the majority of Vietnam-era cases, crime or petty revenge motivated fragging, not bad leadership. He should look at the court-martial records sometimes. Look, Ward Churchill is as much a loon as Randall Terry. No sane person would advocate murder as a political solution...Mr. Jackson seems to have confused Democrats with hairbrained college radicals. Churchill would be lucky to have a ad agency job if he wasn't an academic. I doubt anyone, especially the veterans who post here, are pro-murder." (Steve Gilliard)
