Reader Harv sent me this stupidity:
Olympia, WA –U.S. Navy SEALs have temporarily stopped training in Washington state coastal parks while a legal challenge seeking to ban them permanently winds its way through the court system.
Five of the state’s coastal parks have been utilized for special operations exercise and cold-water training for SEALs for over three decades, according to Coffee or Die Magazine.
Between 2015 and 2020, the Navy conducted a total of 37 training events in Washington state parks, Overton told Coffee or Die Magazine.
So what happened? Did a Seal go berserk and molested puppies and kitties? Or maybe a team stepped on some flower bed owned by some guru? Or children were scared when they came face to face with painted warriors?
None of the above:
He said there have never been any problems between Navy personnel and park visitors in the past.
So why the opposition? As somebody commented:
“We use our parks for peace, solitude, getting back to nature, getting in tune with our family and ourselves. There is no need to use these spaces. Stop, just stop. This is a terrible idea,” one resident wrote.
This is not just an idea, it is something that has been happening for a while now and probably 99% of the people now complaining about, did not have an idea this was happening because that is one of the ideas behind the training.
Another commenter said the Navy has destroyed homes, wildlife, communities, national parks, and the environment with “toxic jet noise and war games” and urged the state to “say no to the Bullish Toxic Navy.”
And that is where you get the sneaky suspicion none of the complainers have seen the inside of a park, much less really worry about its condition other than say they are “Green.” This is just political bullshit emanated from the deep fountains of the Left Anti-War movement (Specially if it favors the defense of the USA. They don’t care if China or Russia invades other nations, they have a right to do so because reasons.)
Same old shit, different generation.
