MSNBC's Joe Scarborough provoked a flurry of criticism online when he argued on Twitter that too few young people serve in the military, and play video games instead. In a tweet on Monday, the Morning Joe host piggybacked off a reader comment on the American Conservative regarding American youth's "degradation into cocoons of social media, mental illness, porn, and disconnection from other people."

"Young men in the 1940s liberated Europe from Nazism and the Pacific from the Japanese Empire. Today, too many stay home playing video games." https://t.co/e7FTe0O20P -- Joe Scarborough (@JoeNBC), August 7, 2017

... Scarborough declined to serve, and voted as a congressman to support the invasion of Iraq, where thousands of young Americans served.

Isn't this the guy that murdered a woman in Florida and got away with it? And he wants us to send more children off to neocon wars for the MIC instead of letting them enjoy their hobbies at home and live peaceful lives?

A distinguished vet like Joe would know.

Oh wait...Joe isn't a vet. He stayed at home making cd's for his band.

Good thing Joe has publicly left the Republican Party, so his antics aren't lumped in among us fine folks.
