The bullshit starts at around the 4;20 mark:
“I can talk personally about this, I guess it’s kind of the elephant in the room. Because my own family, going through what we're going through today. With my son, a combat vet, having served in a Stryker Brigade, fighting for you all America in the ward zone. But my son like so many others, they come back a bit different, they come back hardened, they come back wondering if there is that respect for what it is that their fellow soldiers and airmen, and every other member of the military so sacrificially have given to this country. And that starts from the top. It’s a shame that our military personnel even have to wonder, if they have to question, if they’re respected anymore. It starts from the top. The question though that comes from our own president where they have to look at him and wonder, do you know what we go through? Do you know what we’re trying to do to secure America and to secure the freedoms that have been bequeathed us? So when my own son is going through what he goes through coming back, I can certainly relate with other families who kind of feel these ramifications of some PTSD and some of the woundedness that our soldiers do return with, and it makes me realize more than ever, it is now or never, for the sake of America's finest that we have that Commander-in-Chief that will respect them. And honor them.”
So in a nutshell Palin is blaming the fact that her son cold cocked his girlfriend with a closed fist, and put a gun in his mouth threatening to end his life, because President Obama did not say thank you to him for driving officers around when he was stationed overseas?
So let's once again remind everybody that Track is NOT a combat vet.
Here are his discharge papers, and as you can see he does not have the Combat Infantry Badge which is automatically awarded when a soldier is involved in an exchange of gunfire with the enemy.
So the only way that Track could have suffered PTSD during his deployment is if he is terrified of being away from mommy, or has an unnatural fear of camouflage clothing.
By the way my cell phone has been ringing non-stop today with folks from Wasilla wanting to make that I tell everybody that Track has ALWAYS been a violent, out of control asshole. And that he has been abusing drugs and alcohol for many years before his parents forced him to join the military.
Look I am not saying that at this point he does NOT have PTSD. I'm just saying that if that IS his current diagnosis, that it stems from his years living in the Palin household, and NOT from his very brief time in the military.
