Seattle High School Anti-Military Day

Reading Time: 2 minutes

A fine Marine has written a letter complaining of his treatment at a Seattle High School “Hate the US Military Day.” (That’s not what they called it, but that’s what it was. Michelle Malkin links to the letter on SoundPoliticswhich includes e-mail addresses of this un-American school board. Please read the letter. The addresses are right here.

UPDATE: Here’s my first e-mail these folks:

I have read with interest the story of the sickening, un-American, anti-troop demonstration one of your high schools recently perpetrated. When I learned today that US Marine was invited to this affair in order to be ridiculed and lied about by brainless teachers and idiot students, I had to act. I demand an apology to service members of every branch and every war from each member of the school board and each faculty member of West Seattle High School. I will post that apology, with signatures, on my web site. Until I receive that apology, I will encourage each of my 4,000 readers to send each of you a daily e-mail demanding same.

UPDATE: March 22 e-mail to the school board and West Seattle High School’s principal:

Folks,

I continue to hear from military veterans who are sickened by your political ambush the US Marine Major last week. I hope you are hearing from them, as well.

I hope you will take this opportunity to denounce the travesty that occured in your schools last week so that we who have worn this great nation’s uniform can move on.

Sincerely,

William T. Hennessy

Please read the comments. The US Marine Corps isn’t happy.

    “Does anyone even read this blog?”

    Apparently, you do.

    JSmith:

    Please find out what percentage of the school district’s revenue comes directly or indirectly from federal funding.

    Abolish the Department of Education, and I’ll recall my e-mails to the school board members.

    BTW, I’d like to see the look on your face when you run into that Marine–or me–in a bar.

    JSmith…you don’t deserve to live in this country.

    I don’t get it…if you don’t live in Seattle and therefore are not a taxpayer in that area, what business is it yours to tell them what to do? If you don’t live there then shut up.

    Is there a video of this BTW? Because I’d think it’d be real funny to see the “Marine’s” face when he walked in the room–I’d pay like $3 to see that, maybe even $4.

    Does anyone even read this blog?
