While some spend Memorial Day at cookouts or the beach and others desecrate the tombstones at a veteran’s cemetery with swastikas, still others look for a larger meaning for the day set aside to honor our war dead. As usual, LU’s own J.E. Dyer, herself a veteran, has a thought-provoking peace on the hundredth anniversary of the day originally called Decoration Day, designating a period to visit and decorate the graves of fallen heroes.

Another writer looking for meaning is the Daily Beast’s Dean Obeidallah, who sadly if typically looks in all the wrong places. On Sunday, the columnist, who also fancies himself a comedian, issued a tweet suggesting that his fellow leftists honor those engaged in the so-called “resistance” against President Trump. “This Memorial Day weekend,” he tweeted, “lets [sic] honor the women and men who bravely sacrificed their lives fighting to protect our nation’s freedoms by RESISTING Trump’s attacks on our democracy.  is the highest form of Patriotism!”

Clearly Obeidallah doesn’t understand the real meaning of Memorial Day or hates America so much that it has clouded his senses. Naturally, his obnoxious tweet didn’t sit too well with many.

And while you’re at it, talk to some real Americans who lost loved ones on the battlefield and see how they like your idea.

So true.

“Dean just perfectly illustrated how low the Left will go,” Twitchy added. “So save the BS about going high when the Right goes low because NO PARTY goes as low as the Left.”

We can’t disagree with that sentiment.

One person called Obeidallah’s suggestion, “stolen valor.”

We’ll just let that speak for itself.
