"Tennessee state Sen. Mark Green (R), President Donald Trump's nominee for Army secretary, strongly believes that citizens should be armed - and not just with any ole guns," HuffPost Senior Political Reporter and Politics Managing Editor Amanda Terkel snarks. "They should be able to possess whatever weapons the military has, because an armed citizenry is the 'ultimate checks and balances' against the federal government."
It's almost funny-a liberal arts major with experience limited to leftist agitprop making fun of a man who ... well, take a moment and read his professional qualifications for yourself. He was a West Point Graduate with an economics degree, a Masters degree in Information Systems from USC and a medical degree from Wright State. He served his country on covert missions and received plenty of decorations for being in harm's way. He's a successful businessman. He's a board member for humanitarian organizations "focused on caring for soldiers and their families as they return with the unseen scars of war."
So Terkel's needing to resort to Alinsky Rule 5 ridicule is understandable; it's all she's got. Compare her education, experience and achievements with Green's CV. And note she previously "served as Deputy Research Director at the Center for American Progress and the Managing Editor of ThinkProgress.org."
"Think Progress is a 'project' of the American Progress Action Fund (APAF), a 'sister advocacy organization' of the John Podesta-led Center for American Progress (CAP) and CAP's entities such as Campus Progress. It also draws freely on the resources of the George Soros-funded Media Matters website edited by David Brock.
