Meryl Streep’s rant at the Golden Globes was greeted with great praise by Hollywood celebrities.
Not only did they welcome and agree with her attack on Trump, but they treated it as somehow “brave” to have ranted on a welcoming stage.
Movie producer Judd Apatow even went as far to say that, “We will need a lot of people as clear and brave as Meryl Streep if we are to fight the corruption, bad ideas, and lies of Donald Trump.”
One media type even had the nerve to call her a freedom fighter.
That didn’t sit well with Iraq War veteran, J.R. Salzman.
Salzman lost his arm when his vehicle was hit by an EFP, an Explosively Formed Penetrator, made to penetrate armor.
Salzman’s website explains what happened to him:
His right arm was severed below the elbow and his left hand was pulverized by the blast. He also suffered a traumatic brain injury. As he is allergic to morphine, he was transported to a field hospital before any anesthetic was given.
Salzman responded to those praising Streep.
This is what his humvee looked like after the attack.
Here’s what Salzman looked like after:
Meanwhile, as IJR points out, when Salzman was losing his arm in Iraq, Meryl Streep was strutting on the red carpet for the “Devil Wears Prada.”
What do you think?
Who do you think the real freedom fighter is?
