Does it matter that this vet was raging against the police force and praising Hugo Chavez? Not to the left of course who never shows the full story.

No it does not matter one whit what he was saying, regardless of left, right or in between.
He volunteered, put on the uniform, went to war all in the name of fighting for what this country stands for and the rights that you, I, Dick Cheney, Mitt Romney or any other American has to say or believe what they want. Whether you served, got deferments or simply chose not to participate you still have those rights at least in some measure due to those that DID choose to participate. Or in my case, was selected to participate.
Free speech is your right but it's not without consequences. I'd opine that his rants against police or in favor of Chavez are not nearly so offensive to the vast majority of Americans as those from this proud Republic. He should also now be aware of the concept of consequences.
Learn something about being an American, it'll be good for you.
