My god, some people are fucking stupid

Ok so the other day I was on youtube listening to “Hero of War” by lefty Chicago band Rise Against.

As you can tell from the discussion about pissing on detainees and shooting a woman holding a white flag, this song is not actually suggesting that our soldiers are heroes, but rather opposite. So, what comment on the video has attracted the most likes from other youtubers? It is as follows:

this is a true song so who ever dislikes this song obz dosent love england becasue do you know how many people died in the war just for us and he is just one of the people who sings the truth so i have all my recpect for him so if you agree wiv me like it if you dont dislike it and if i ever meet him i would call him a hero casue my uncle died in the war and im well proud of him so i love everysingle man that went out there to risk all there lives just for us THANKYOU SOLDIERS I SHOW ALL RECPECT

Leaving aside her inability to use a fucking comma, how hard is it to grasp the irony in this song? I mean a story about “war heroes” pissing on and murdering defenceless individuals is not especially subtle. Yet appparently it’s all too complex for the 38 people who “liked” her comment.

For some reason youtube commenters seem to be the most deranged and idiotic on the internet. It seems that when this stupidity is combined with general idiocy that characterises war cheering patriots, the above result ensues.

Dude, I agree with you. People is fucking stupid, war is murder, and soldiers are psychos.

But, talking about fucking stupid, you started your sentence with “my god”. That’s what I call Irony, putting a reference to your belief in a stupid imaginary friend in the sky before “people is fucking stupid”. People is fucking stupid, religious people is extra retarded.

The song isn’t about criticizing soldiers, retard. It’s about soldiers becoming disillusioned when they were promised to become heroes and fight for good. Instead, they are ordered time and time again to do things they find morally objectionable, and other times they are encouraged (such as pissing on a prisoner’s hands)by fellow soldiers to do something reprehensible.
