Over the weekend, controversy erupted after Donald Trump defended himself against unprovoked attacks by Kzir Khan, whose son was killed by a Muslim terrorist during the Iraq War, and a mother whose son is currently serving had some choice words for him…and they’re absolutely brutal.
For those unaware, Khan’s son was a national hero who was killed proudly serving our nation, so Khan exploited his son’s death to launch a vicious attack against Trump as he spoke at the DNC Convention in Philadelphia. Of course, Trump wasn’t about to let his name be defamed without reacting, and he’s been catching serious heat for it ever since.
While many have condemned Trump for merely suggesting that the Clinton campaign machine had a hand in preparing Khan’s speech, a Blue Star mother (whose name I’m withholding to protect her from trolls), whose son is currently serving in the military after being awarded a Purple Heart, condemned someone else entirely – Mr. Khan over his outrageous remarks. Her comments came in response to a post I made on my Facebook page, and she absolutely hit it out of the park.
Check it out:
Here’s her comment in full [grammar inaccuracies not mine]:
To the Muslim Gold Star father that spoke at the DNC…..I have some thoughts on your comments. I am a Blue Star mother. My deepest condolences on the loss of your son. No family should have to endure such a loss. That being said….while your son is a hero, you Sir, are NOT. My son has served three tours of combat in the countries you and your family came from. Iraq and Afghanistan were his introduction to adulthood and service to something bigger than our individual selves. He was blown up by an IED set by your countrymen. His Purple Heart is a testament to his love of America and our freedoms. I have suffered through his multiple combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan….never knowing from moment to moment if he would return home in a flag draped coffin. It is torture when a mother wakes up to this day after day and sees the atrocities happening over there on the news and being helpless to change a thing. My comments to you will probably offend you. I do not apologize. These things need to be said. Unlike you, I could NEVER use my son’s death as a pawn piece in support of a woman that left “America’s treasure” (Hillarys words) to die unaided in Benghazi. The same woman that says vile things to her military details there to protect her. You, Sir, are supposed to be a witness to your son’s bravery and sacrifice. Instead you stood on a stage and promoted the woman that upholds the very people that killed your son. You became a political PAWN that promotes pandering to our enemy. You desecrated your son’s memory by your words. You did not utter one word of outrage at anyone but Donald Trump. Are you forgetting that Trump did not kill your son. He had nothing whatsoever to do with these wars. His memory should mean more to you than five minutes of fame on the stage of the party that voted to send your son to war. The same party that for eight years has denied and cheated our veterans out of their deserved medical care. Who for the last three years has cut our veterans pay. Of note…your wife stood SILENT. She stood with her head covered, never uttering a word about her loss. She submitted to you being her voice in front of the country. She abdicated her free voice to you…..as would any good Sharia wife and mother. Let me say, this was not lost on the other American military moms….myself included. Had it been my son being “used” as a political PROP, no one could have silenced me. I would be voicing my grief, my pride, my love of him to the world. A man cannot speak to a mothers loss. No man knows her heart at the loss of a child. She did her heroic son a disservice by her silence. She should have uncovered her head and her heart to be the American mother you claim. And last if all….you dared to flash your picket Constitution and ask if Trump has read it. I dare to ask you, Sir….HAVE YOU READ IT? If you say yes, then I dare ask you HOW you could represent that party? HOW can you support this woman? How can you affiliate your family with a party and candidate that cannot even call the radicals that killed your son what they are? How can you support a current administration that diminishes your son’s death by denying he had an enemy? And if you have read our Constitution, how could you cover your soulmate in colorful submissive sheets and have the audacity to speak FOR her? Your son died for that Constitution you so carelessly waved around on national TV in support of the very party that exists to destroy it. As a soldier’s mother….NO ONE could ever speak for me. I find your outrage artificial. I find your party affiliation offensive. I find your wife’s silence atrocious and offensive. I find YOU a political FOOL. I find your son to have been your greatest accomplishment, and you, Sir, have dishonored him. I hope you memorize that picket constitution so you will understand what it means to be a REAL American and hero. You are not one. You were USED. Your son WOULD NOT be proud of you. My only hope is that when MY son goes a fourth time to combat radical Islamic terrorist’s, ( and he WILL) he will know that his mother never stood submissively SILENT about an American hero. Yes, your son was a hero that could not be manipulated but, you, Sir, are a weak minded FOOL. I would love to hear your thoughts this morning about the 1500 American soldiers on the air base in Turkey being held as basic hostages as I type. Not a word from this president or party you adore…or the media that so thoroughly manipulated and used you and your wife. So…what say you Sir??? What will you say to a Blue and Gold Star family if these heroes die? In my opinion, you will say NOTHING.
Bravo, ma’am! You said what many people are currently feeling, and you were spot-on with your assessment.
Thank you for your family’s sacrifices for our nation, and we all thank your son for his proud service. You and your family are true patriots, and we’ll be praying for all of your safety.
In related news, still no word from the national media over Hillary Clinton once again calling Patricia Smith, whose son was killed in Benghazi after being abandoned by Hillary, a liar during an interview on Fox News yesterday. Then again, you didn’t really expect honesty from the MSM, did you?
UPDATE: After speaking directly with this incredible Blue Star mother, she sent me some pictures of her warrior son from when he was deployed during Operation Enduring Freedom. He was also deployed during Operation Iraqi Freedom, and has served several other tours as well.
Meet U.S. Army Sgt. Gray Naugle, 3rd Infantry Division. This hero went to war to fight our biggest enemy – radical Islam – and to secure the many blessings and freedoms we enjoy in this great nation. His sacrifices are greatly appreciated by us all.
God Bless Sgt. Naugle and his patriotic family, and God Bless these United States of America!
