If You’re Mad at the Navy for Hurting Dolphins, You’ve Forgotten What the Armed Forces Get Paid To Do
Y’all have seen this one on Facebook, right? Comes with an online petition so you can get your name on MoveOn.org’s spam list:
Apparently the United States Navy has some kind of sonar system underwater that messes with dolphins. So people are getting their activist on, and clicking “share” on one of those graphuck things on Facebook. Maybe even clicking through to sign an online petition. Shit just got real up in here. Because dolphins.
I’m wondering if anyone is pausing in their Facebook-indignation (never to be confused with the real thing) and contemplating the actual purpose of our military, which is to kill people.
That’s pretty much their thing. That’s what we pay ‘em for. They kill people. Pretty much every day! We are having a really good day as a country when we aren’t killing someone or other, with your tax dollars.
So color me a little surprised that y’all want to rag on the Navy for messing with dolphins.
Is it sad? Sure. Could we work on maybe not doing it? That would be great. But if you’re gonna get up in the military’s face about barbarism, dolphins can get in line behind the actual human beings.
Priorities, people. Even if it’s just some bullshit on Facebook, priorities. We do a lot of messed-up things as a country, and this is waaaaaay down the list.
Get aware, or at least be less aggressively and publicly unaware, because after all the tragedies great and small that our armed forces have been party to it’s damned embarrassing to have you rending your clothes over a bunch of dolphins.
Glad we had this little chat.
