The race riots have now spread to Baltimore, Maryland, and Vietnam War veteran Robert Valentine has had enough.
The patriotic veteran was spotted by CNN reporters on the front-lines of the protests telling the rioters to go home. When he was interviewed, Valentine said he had seen “a lot worse than this. This is not relevant.”
“They need to have their butts at home,” he added, pointing to the rioters. “They need to be in their home units, with their families, studying and doing something with their lives.”
Valentine then turned his attention to Freddie Gray, the young man who inspired the protests after he died from a spinal injury he received when being taken down by police.
“They do not respect this young man’s (Gray’s) death,” Valentine lamented. “His momma and daddy have lost a child. That could be them (the rioters). So I’m very pissed.”
The reporter then asked him how he had the courage to stand up to the violent protesters, and Valentine’s response was epic.
“I love my country. I love my city,” the veteran proudly said. “And I’m an American. I’m not black, white, red, yellow … nothing. I’m an American.”
We applaud Robert Valentine for putting this ridiculous riot into perspective. Thank you for your service, Mr. Valentine!
