How exactly would MSNBC host define 'heroism'?


Since MSNBC host Chris Hayes is "uncomfortable" labeling fallen soldiers as "heroes," The Twitterverse wondered: How does one define #HayesHeroism?

Twitchy collected some of the best to help us clarify.  Here's just a few:

And then there's Ann Coulter being... well, Ann Coulter:

The conservative blogosphere also responded to Hayes' remarks in kind...

Wizbang's Warner Todd Hudson wrote:

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.

Tommy, a veteran, wrote at The Right Sphere about how he actually feels sorry for Hayes:

As a veteran, I couldn’t disagree more strongly with what Hayes had to say, yet I can’t quite bring myself to be angry about it. Instead, I find myself feeling sorry for him. I don’t feel sorry for him because of the giant crapstorm that has rightfully befallen him, but for another reason.

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. He’s painted ‘Occupy’ as do-gooders and the police as evil, and now says he’s ‘uncomfortable’ with referring to fallen as heroes. [...]

Worst of all, Chris Hayes has never had the experience of being a part of something that is greater than him. I don’t care that he never served. Serving is a personal choice and not required to comment. I don’t care that his show is nothing more than a weekly 2-hour commercial for Obama 2012. He’s a liberal shill, I get that. It’s what he is and what he will always be. I do care when he says things that are disrespectful to those that have given what Lincoln called “the last full measure of devotion.”

Newsbusters slammed the MSNBC host as the "human embodiment" of the term effete-- affected, overrefined, and ineffectual; see "Chris Hayes."
