: Churchill made the following statements in a speech in Portland
But for those of you who do, as a matter of principle, oppose war in any form, the idea of supporting a conscientious objector who’s already been inducted [and] in his combat service in Iraq might have a certain appeal. But let me ask you this: Would you render the same support to someone who hadn’t conscientiously objected, but rather instead rolled a grenade under their line officer in order to neutralize the combat capacity of their unit? That kind of resistance.
[ . . . ]
You cannot maintain a military projection of force in the field when your own troops are taking out the line officers who are directing them in combat. It is as simple as that. Conscientious objection removes a given piece of the cannon fodder from the fray; fragging an officer has a much more impactful effect.
It might not seem that significant that a few moonbats in this nation are saying things like that. But it most certainly is
significant that the University of Colorado not only gave him an academic job for which he was in fact unqualified, but promoted him to Chair of a department.
