Blogs rip MSNBC's Chris Hayes on 'heroes'.... said the word 'hero' is 'rhetorically proximate to justifications for more war.'

Hayes didn't explain "heroes = more war"... like all liberals, he used a bumper sticker affirmation....   his heroes must be The Muppets, OWS, or Desperate Housewives.

Conservatives in the blogosphere slammed MSNBC’s Chris Hayes for saying on  his show Sunday that he feels “uncomfortable” calling fallen soldiers “heroes.”

“Why do I feel so uncomfortable about the word ‘hero’?” Hayes said. “I feel  uncomfortable about the word hero because it seems to me that it is so  rhetorically proximate to justifications for more war. Um, and, I don’t want to  obviously desecrate or disrespect memory of anyone that’s fallen, and obviously  there are individual circumstances in which there is genuine, tremendous  heroism, you know, hail of gunfire, rescuing fellow soldiers and things like  that. But it seems to me that we marshal this word in a way that is problematic.  But maybe I’m wrong about that.”

Kurt Schlichter at Breitbart blasted Hayes for his comment, writing, “Memo to  Chris: they are heroes, and you don’t get a vote.”

“So, like so many other useless progressive fops who glide from cocktail  party to panel discussion, Chris Hayes continues to push his progressive vision  of collectivist serfdom from behind the unbreachable wall of American warriors,” Schlichter wrote. “He has not stood with them and, in fact, is unworthy of doing  so. He is a parasite taking sustenance from the exertions of better men and  women.”

He also picked apart Hayes’ line, “rhetorically proximate to justifications  for more war.” The MSNBC host, Schlichter blogged, “sounds like one of my commie  grad students trying to impress credulous freshman girls after a choom session  in the quad.”

And Newsbusters’ Mark Finkelstein dubbed Hayes “the human  embodiment” of the word “effete” and mocked him for what “almost seems a parody  of the conflicted intellectual.”

“What does it say about the liberal chattering class, which Hayes epitomizes,  that it chokes on calling America’s fallen what they rightly and surely are:  heroes?” Finkelstein wrote.

On Wizbang, Warner Todd Huston blogged, “Happy Memorial Day, Chris Hayes. I’d like to  remind you that many of those Neanderthals that you despise so much died for  your right to hate them.”

A blogger at The Right Sphere, who noted he is a veteran, wrote that he “can’t quite bring myself to be angry about it.”

“I feel sorry for Chris Hayes because sadly, this is his worldview. It’s how  he thinks. It’s his value system, and it’s sad. This is a man who over and over  again has spoken with greater reverence about the ‘Occupy Movement’ than he did  today about our fallen service members,” Tommy wrote.

Meanwhile, Ann Coulter took to Twitter to give her assessment of the MSNBC  host’s comment. “Chris Hayes ‘Uncomfortable’ Calling Fallen Military ‘Heroes’ — Marines respond by protecting his right to menstruate,” she tweeted.

And Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit offered up a simple reply to Hayes’ statement  that “it seems to me that we marshal this word in a way that is problematic. But  maybe I’m wrong about that.”

“Yes. You would be wrong about that, Chris,” Hoft blogged.
