Stephen King Is An Asshat
Proving once again that hollywood has nothing but disdain for our men and women in uniform Stephen King continues to stand behind comments that he made while speaking to a group of students at the Library of Congress.
“The fact is if you can read, you can walk into a job later on. If you don’t, then you’ve got the Army, Iraq, I don’t know, something like that.”
Now, we all say stupid things from time to time or just flat say the wrong thing. However, unlike people who “misspeak” King continues to degrade our troops by not only standing behind his comments, but continuing to make false a malicious statements as to the reading ability of the greatest military in the world.
“I see a lot of young people who don’t test well and don’t read particularly well,” he said. “When we ask them what they’re going to do, they say go into the service. If you can read, the world is open to you, your opportunities are endless. If you can’t read, your options are more limited. For low-income students with low grades, the [Armed Services] is one of their options.”

According to King, I shouldn’t even be writing this because I am nothing but a knuckle dragging illiterate. King continues to rant on about his views of the war. He supports B. Hussein Obama. Go figure a guy with an obvious prejudice against our armed forces supporting a traitor who refuses to honor our flag.
Asshats, both of them.
