Navy SEAL Veterans Have A Bold Message For Students Who Claim 2016 Election “Traumatized” Them


Two military veterans — one of them a double-amputee
— have a stern message for the 25 percent of college-aged millennials and other bellyachers
who claim to be suffering from post traumatic stress disorder because of President Donald
Trump’s successful ascendancy to the White House. “First off, you don’t have PTSD. You are not traumatized,” Navy SEAL veteran
Eli Crane said this week in an interview with the Independent Journal Review. He added: “The only things you are suffering
from is weakness, entitlement, poor upbringings and from growing up in a disgraceful time
period where progressive policies ‘Trumped’ common sense and parental responsibility.” He added that what millennials are doing is
misappropriating “a diagnosis primarily reserved for combat vets, first responders,
sexual assault victims and individuals who have suffered from real trauma.” But why are they doing this? Because they’ve been “so coddled and protected
from reality” all their lives: Since many of you out there don’t understand
what real PTSD and trauma look like, I encourage you to go to one of our military hospitals
and hang out for a day or two with a soldier who has been blown up or watched friends die
in a combat zone. You can also go chat with a first responder
who has been working the streets or riding in an ambulance for ten years to hear about
real trauma. I guarantee you they won’t ever bring up
a presidential or political election of any kind. The 25 percent number stems from a recently
published study from San Francisco State University, which found that a quarter of college-aged
millennial Arizona State University students allegedly suffer from PTSD because of Trump’s
election. The results of this test have annoyed veterans
because they feel there’s no equivalency between losing an election and fighting in
a war and seeing your friends being killed. Speaking with the hosts of “Fox & Friends”
on Wednesday morning, double-amputee Marine Corps veteran Joey Jones concurred with Crane’s
assessment, adding that millennials’ alleged PTSD is “equivalent to a bad hair day,”
at worst. “It’s not the equivalent to putting your
buddy into a bag. It’s not the equivalent to trying to save
someone’s life and watching it slip away in the middle of combat,” he said. “You can take your studies, your degrees,
your entitled opinions, and claim whatever you would like,” he continued, adding that
their claims of suffering from PTSD are “disgusting.” “What this country needs is men and women
of strong mind and strong faith. That’s who serves this country. Unfortunately, those are the people who truly
have suffered from PTSD but thankfully, they’re strong enough and we believe in them enough
that we’ll get them through it,” he added. He echoed these points in a series of tweets
that he posted later on Wednesday: In a story years ago about Jones’ ordeals,
ABC News reported that he lost his legs in Afghanistan eight years ago when, while defusing
bombs, one was triggered, setting off a massive explosion that nearly killed him. “They wouldn’t even tell me if he was
alive,” his mom told the outlet. “They told me he had lost both of his legs,
one below the knee and one above. They had to do an amputation. And they told me one of his arms was broken. That’s all they told me.” It’s unclear why millennials who had to
deal with losing an election feel their purported tribulations are in any way equivalent to
what men like Jones have endured.
