Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore disrespected the sacrifices of our brave Vietnam War veterans on Sunday when he tried to suggest that we create a new “we lost the Vietnam War” day in order to commemorate the end of the Vietnam War.
Here is what Moore tweeted:
We lost the Vietnam War 42yrs ago today. Should be a nat'l holiday, a commitment to never make same mistake again. pic.twitter.com/rqUGMMCLkf

Moore frequently tries to be edgy and often talks down to the majority of Americans, but a devoted Vietnam War veteran was having none of his nonsense.
U.S. veteran Paul Palazzolo told Moore that he was approaching the entire situation wrong.
“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.”
“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.
What do you think about this? Should Moore apologize for mocking the thousands of American lives that were lost in Vietnam? We’d love to hear your opinion, leave a comment below.
