Scott Olsen: I hate the Marine Corps

| October 28, 2011

Yesterday, we discussed IVAW and Veterans For Peace member, Scott Olsen, who had his head busted by some police “projectile” in Oakland the other night. Our buddy, Gateway Pundit sent us a link to his post today about how Olsen was the founder of the “I Hate The Marine Corps” blog.

Gateway Pundit quotes from Verum Serum who discovered the original story;

The Marine Corps thrives on its image. They convince young men and women that they’re joining a professional military organization. But that’s not the case at all, every Marine knows it, and most have no problem downplaying the bullshit to outsiders so they can protect their “beloved corps”. I noticed some of the other posters have told you not to pay any attention to my site because we’re just a bunch of ********* who couldn’t hack it, right? Maybe not hacking it means we saw through the bullshit and don’t want to take it. Maybe the brainwashing didn’t work on us. I’m not here to tell you if you should join or not. I’m here to advise you to take the people who visit my website just as seriously as anybody who tries to sell you the MC as a good thing.

My site is anonymous, these people don’t have to worry about hiding from the MC, or protecting the MC’s image or anything. It is unfiltered truth.

No, he still didn’t deserve a fractured skull, but I think it’s a little bit odd that he hates the Marine Corps…until it gives him and his fellow hippies a measure of moral authority.

Update Sporkmaster: For someone who did not like the Marines, they are actively trying to portray the opposite. Here is a screen capture of of his comment that he was being separated for drug use.

    You are right AnotherMarine, the only thing that the Marine Corps did for me was give me a marketable skill, a good work ethic, a security clearance that allows me to earn over $110K a year, appreciation for what I have earned, and access to a network of fellow service members that are willing to help me if I ever need it. Yeah, the Corps really sucks. I probably would have been better off staying in Jersey earning next to nothing.

      Really 100k I doubt that as an officer with a ts I was offered 80 k and that was after 6 years

    First rule in anything AM, No one owes you ANYTHING. If you kept that in perspective maybe your time in would have been spent doing something constructive instead of becoming emotionally over invested in something you can’t control. Everything’s what you make of it.

    Question: What typically happens to those on the battle field that say, “I hate the Marine Corps?”

    Any further questions?

  5. There are so many new age distractions that the youngsters are forced to read
    even their textbooks. The online bookstores are also very customer-centric.
    So we take utmost care as per the interest of the children are concerned.
