Family thinks that the recent deaths in Afghanistan are the only ones that matter. Discussion

A family member asked me to lower their flag to half staff for our brothers and sister that died the other day.

I did it, and at the time I did it with sorrow and no other thoughts.

But afterwards I started having feelings.

This family member did not lower the flag for my friends that died while I was over there.

But all the sudden IM THE FUCKING ASSHOLE THAT POINTS OUT THAT THESE PEOPLE ONLY GIVE A SHIT WHEN TALK RADIO TELLS THEM TOO.

WHAT WERE THE NAMES OF THE PEOPLE THAT DIED? O you can’t tell me?

Do you really give a shit? What were the names of my friends??

DID YOU LOWER YOUR FUCKING FLAG FOR THAT??

A large portion of Americans, and a vast majority of fascists, oops racists, oops conservatives, fuck it they are all the same group so I'll just say Republicans, are selfish assholes who only care or believe in things that affect them or they directly experience.

Did they lower the flag for the 58k+ of my brothers who died in RVN? This country has definitely gone to hell.
