This week we learned two things about the once proud Armed Forces of the United States of America.
The first is that they covertly created a new branch of the service: The Shitpost Corps.
The second is that outdated concepts like “winning wars” and “protecting American interests”, while still there, are now secondary to new, exciting goals such as building self-esteem in differently-gendered service persons.
Well, all this came to a head this week when conservative pundit Tucker Carlson ranted against pregnant women in the military. In predictable fashion, Democrats and the media (yeah, I know) came out to condemn him, all the while adding to and outright making up what he was saying.
What was completely unpredictable was that the military itself got in on the game. A military who would get themselves rightly condemned with accusations of endangering democracy if they harangued one of the many, many anti-military types on the left, took on Carlson on Twitter.
There were some awful tweets put out. These are not them. But they fooled too many people.
Remember when Democrats crowed that when Trump is out of office, there wouldn’t be any more trolling tweets from the government?
Yeah, I don’t think they meant that. Even worse they empowered those who hold the guns to go after a civilian.
Now, here are a few original memes (or perhaps just wisecracks) from fellow TLP editor Paul Hair.

You have to laugh. Otherwise you cry.
