Green Beret Tim Kennedy gave the BEST response to liberals who refused to stand for Navy SEAL widow Carryn Owens at Trump’s joint address to Congress. Kudos to you, sir!
“She is everything we fight for. Show her respect or crawl into a corner and hide,” Tim Kennedy commented beneath his viral post.
Kennedy served multiple tours in Iraq. The special forces veteran is also an accomplished MMA fighter.
Liberal trolls quickly chimed in to bash Kennedy and President Trump, pretending they both want a military state that criminalizes not honoring our men and women in uniform. The simple fact is Carryn Owens earned the right to be treated with respect by ALL members of Congress — her husband paid for it in blood! This is not a matter of law but common decency.
It’s fine if liberal elites want to remain seated on their ample bottoms when a Republican president is laying out his foreign policy, illegal immigration, and health care agenda. It is something else entirely when they choose to sit while a Gold Star wife and her husband are being commended for their service to this nation.
Michael Moore was absolutely wrong, and disgusting, when he called Carryn Owens a “pawn” and referred to her as a “poor woman” who was being used by President Trump during the speech for political reasons. The only people putting politics before country and human decency during the joint address were the Democrats who refused to stand and applaud the entire Owens family!
Carryn Owens is a brave woman. Hearing the words the president said about her husband made her swell with pride and hopefully eased her pain a little bit.
She deserved to feel the grief her fellow Americans feel at the loss of her husband. And we deserved the chance to show her, her family, and the rest of the military families who sacrifice for us all how much we revere them.
Leave it to liberals to respond to an issue about a decent show of respect with knee-jerk histrionics. Neither Kennedy nor any of the hundreds of people who responded to his post called for an infringement upon the First Amendment rights of cold-hearted Democrats.
The standing ovation for Navy SEAL William “Ryan” Owens and his widow lasted well over two minutes. Standing to honor both of their sacrifices is not too much to ask from our elected officials — even if they are Democrats!
There are acts of protest, and then there is just being a despicable person. The latter is what the Democrats in Congress proved themselves to be when they refused to stand for Mrs. Owens.
