Michael Moore Gets Roasted After Suggesting Americans Celebrate Vietnam War Loss
Progressive propagandist and movie director Michael Moore is up to his old liberal tricks again.
Moore, who has spoken out against the Vietnam War for years, decided that it might be a good idea to honor the loss of the war by suggesting a national holiday.
He made the proposal for a national “holiday” for the date “we lost the Vietnam War” last Sunday on Twitter.

Moore, of course, has embarrassed himself in public before, but this was an insult that went too far — even for some of his fans.

U.S. veteran Paul Palazzolo told TheBlaze that Moore had it all wrong.
Palazzolo, who served as a sergeant in the U.S. Army in Vietnam from 1967 to 1969, said he liked Moore’s work because it makes people think. However, he said that Moore’s suggestion for a national “holiday,” and his statement that America had lost the war were mistaken.
“The people in Washington didn’t want us to win it,” Palazzolo told TheBlaze, adding that “when you start a war, you finish a war.”
Army veteran John Spencer who also served in Vietnam agreed with Palazzolo.
“Moore seems to make a living focusing on negative issues,” Spencer told TheBlaze. “He should be ashamed to continue to castigate those who served.”
Spencer said that those who served in Vietnam deserved better.
“We won the ground war. North Vietnam focused on stirring the anti-war movement in the U.S. and turned public sentiment against it. The U.S. government failed to live up to the agreements to continue support of South Vietnam, causing the deaths of many in South Vietnam,” he said.
Moore has proven more than once that he has no respect for our veterans or our military. This kind of comment isn’t surprising, but it is a reminder of the kind of disdain the left has for those who have chosen to fight for this country.
