Dakota Meyer, a Marine Sergeant from Columbia, Kentucky who earned his Medal of Honor during the Battle of Ganjgal in Kunar Province, Afghanistan on Sept 8 2009, shut down the CNN anchor who blamed military veterans on police forces for outbreaks of rioting.

You may recall CNN’s Brooke Baldwin’s headlines Tuesday slandering American vets by suggesting they have quick trigger fingers and reflexes tuned to battle rather than civilian policing.

Recounting what she said was an interview with a Baltimore official, Baldwin said, “A lot of young people, and I love our nation’s veterans, but some of them are coming back from war, they don’t know the communities, and they are ready to do battle.”

Meyer responded:

Meyer had a lot of support from Twitter:

How can an “unbiased” news anchor get away with making a sweeping statement such as this and still claim to be unbiased? Let us hear your thoughts.

    In your opening paragraph you state Dakota Meyer, a Marine Sergeant who “won” the Medal of Honor… He did not win nothing, his actions “earned” the Medal of Honor. Or he was “awarded” the Medal of Honor for his actions. The word “win” or “won” can never be used when refered to a Man that saved numerous lives and put his life above others. You can “win” the lottery, you can “win” a free drink at McDonalds but you will not “win” a Medal of Honor it is earned with greater responsibility that you or I could ever hope to achieve.

    • Jason,
      I stand corrected. My only excuse is that I was thinking “win” as in “win a race” which requires the winner to “earn” their medal. I will keep this in mind in the future.

    When I was in the Marine corps. We were concidered thugs and baby killers etc. etc, by the very ones who’s sons and daughters are protecting us right now. I wonder how they would feel if there children were being spat on and ridiculed. I’m sure they never think about it because I haven’t heard one appoligy from them yet. And yes it still hurts

    • Terry,
      I’m so sorry that you had to experience that. I suspect you are referring to Viet Nam. I was slightly too young to participate in that conflict, but please know that not everyone here at home felt that way about what you had to do there.

      Thank you for your service,

  3. He did not “win” his medal of honor, Mr Meyer EARNED that medal going above and beyond serving our great country

    • Dave Lister | May 1, 2015 at 1:07 pm |

      “Earned” isn’t really the best way to put it either. It would be more appropriate to say he was awarded, decorated with, or presented with the Medal of Honor for his actions during the Battle of Ganjgal.

    • D Smith,
      As I replied to Jason above, I stand corrected. Not having been in the military myself, sometimes our mindsets are different with no disrespect intended.
