‘Uncomfortable’ Calling Our Military ‘Heros’ – FoxNews Hannity Panel Takes On MSNBC’s Chris Hayes

The New 940’s Sean Hannity has gone on the record about MSNBC’s Chris Hayes and his comments over the weekend concerning our military and their place in the pantheon of heroes.

With many spending their Memorial Day holiday commemorating the loss of a family member who lost their life in service of our country at least one was openly discussing discomfort at calling those in the military ‘heroes’.  Unfortunately for MSNBC it was on the air and it was Chris Hayes.

“I feel… uncomfortable, about the word because it seems to me that it is so rhetorically proximate to justifications for more war. Um, and, I don’t want to obviously desecrate or disrespect memory of anyone that’s fallen, and obviously there are individual circumstances in which there is genuine, tremendous heroism, you know, hail of gunfire, rescuing fellow soldiers, and things like that. But it seems to me that we marshal this word in a way that is problematic. But maybe I’m wrong about that.”

Sean Hannity discussed this on his show on KIXZ on Tuesday and continued his thoughts with a panel discussion on his FoxNews show yesterday.

YouTube doesn’t have the video but you can watch it here at Mediaite.
