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.
