We all knew it was coming: The moment it was announced that Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl would be returning to active duty, it was only a matter of time before right-wingers would express their outrage in the form of violent threats.
Forgetting that America does not leave its soldiers behind, and fueled by right-wing claims that Bergdahl deserted his post to convert to Islam and join the Taliban, the cretinous masses at The Blaze are in the process of doing what they do best: spewing vitriol and hatred at an American soldier while pretending it somehow demonstrates their love for America.
Elsewhere around the interwebs, right-wing nutjobs are similarly hateful, and full of conspiracy theories surrounding Bergdahl’s rehabilitation and return to serving his country:
Nothing proves one is a patriot more than attacking a soldier who spent five years in captivity only to return home and returning to service. Bergdahl may not be perfect–but he is one of our own and does not deserve the treatment he receives at the hands of people who somehow manage to convert the word “patriot” to a negative label.
