Liberals: why do they have to freak out over anything awesome? It doesn’t matter if it’s the national anthem, AR-15s, a 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T with a 440 cubic inch engine, “American Sniper” or even lawn darts. If it’s awesome, liberals probably hate it.
For instance, take this video of an Apache helicopter blowing up some terrorists in Afghanistan. Awesome, right? Well, no, as a liberal group posted it as an example of “deplorable conduct of American troops in Afghanistan.”
Why, you ask? Well, because one of the pilots sang “Bye, bye, Miss American Pie … ” just before the missile hit.
Yes, that’s right — they hated an awesome video of terrorists getting blown up because one of the pilots did something even more awesome just beforehand. Man, being a liberal could not be any less fun.
As you probably well know, Don McLean’s 1971 classic “American Pie” eulogizes the deaths of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper in a plane crash.
While this incident included death and an aircraft, the atmosphere was decidedly more joyous, as the AH-64 Apache helicopter from the 101st Airborne Division in Fort Campbell, Kentucky, rained down fire on a couple of anonymous extremists.
At 1:40 in the video, as the deadly missile was launched and was about to hit, one of the pilots can be heard singing the song’s legendary refrain. Then, the missile hits the road and presumably its target.
“Nice,” another voice can be heard saying. The survivors run for cover, but the pilots were able to take them out with lighter ordnance.
The video was posted by a liberal group. However, the over 1.2 million views its generated probably weren’t from liberals, but from conservatives getting a kick out of seeing our enemies incinerated by our armed forces. Most of the posted comments were supportive of the American military.
So, nice try on that whole “deplorable behavior” bit, liberals. We’re just there to see Taliban sympathizers get toasted.
Please like and share on Facebook and Twitter if you agree watching terrorists get their comeuppance is generally pretty awesome.
