Derps, Doofuses, and Unhinged Right Wingers
Someone very dear to me is in the Navy, so this story interested me.
The Navy, understands that a fit military is a good thing for America, and it is being pro-active in making sure that one way our service men and women achieve fitness is by eating well.
"Navy Secretary Ray Mabus announced a host of sweeping changes in May that will affect everything from promotions and training to uniforms and fitness. As part of that, he has set his sights on a well-balanced diet, which he calls “the foundation of a healthy lifestyle” that will provide capable warfighters and lower medical costs.
Mabus touted the SEALs’ “Fuel to Fight” program as an example. It increases the availability of lean-proteins, vegetables, and complex carbohydrates to fuel, rather than feed, the warfighter."
However, because somewhere during the reporting of this story, Michelle Obama's name came up, the hysterical low-information Derps, aka Goopers, immediately and without any facts, criticized the FLOTUS for interfering with how the Navy feeds its men and women.
"Some current and former sailors took to the NavyTimes Facebook page saying it sounded like something that would be done by Michelle Obama. One conservative blog picked up on that, slapped on the sensationalist headline that Michelle was taking food away from sailors, with only one small disclaimer at the end of the article:
While Michelle may not have been directly involved in the decision, it’s clear that her over-zealous desire to force the entire country to be nutritious has created a culture among the federal bureaucracy that seeks to do just that — even at the expense of our troops."
Michelle Obama had nothing to do with the Navy's decision to eliminate fried food for healthier fare, but in the fever swamp of their fact-free minds, that doesn't matter.
This poutrage from the right isn't new, they've been slandering the FLOTUS and the POTUS since January 20, 2009. But now, they're calling for the assassination of Mrs. Obama and her family over nothing more than a rumor they heard, which they immediately connected to Mrs. Obama.
We'll always have these idiots among us.
And they'll even support a hare-brained doofus for preznit
