CBS Crew’s Sneering Disrespect for Pearl Harbor Vets

No-show former Hawaiian Barack Hussein Obama wasn’t the only one unimpressed by the importance of Pearl Harbor memorial events marking the 70th anniversary of the day that lives in infamy. Steffan Tubbs describes the infuriating disrespect of a CBS crew that was filming some idiotic TV show atop the graves of fallen soldiers while the last Pearl Harbor survivors tried to pay them tribute.

After shooing the vets away from the graves of their fallen comrades, the arrogant Hollywood weenies marched through a solemn ceremony:

The TGGF [The Greatest Generations Foundation] program had brought 24 red roses to place at the gravesites on the opposite side of the Punchbowl. The program crew actually had one of their men wearing a backpack and earplug walk through — infiltrate — our rose-laying ceremony hushing everyone.

It was a disgrace.

He ruined the somber mood and my blood was now beyond boiling. Thankfully most of our vets were so focused on placing their roses they didn’t catch what was going on. This moron laughed as he communicated with some other crewmember on the other side of the cemetery via his cell phone headset. About this time, a caterer walked over grass and flat headstones, through our vets gathering, with a plate of blackberries and salmon for the actors to snack on.

At least it wasn’t Japanese food.

The Hollyweirdos’ rudeness was sufficient to earn them a single finger salute from many of the octogenarian and nonagenarian vets as they departed. The entertainment industry has warranted the same sentiments from the public at large.

On a tip from Nobody.

    Sorry, can’t boycott this show. But only because the few minutes of the show I have watched were hideous and a total insult to the original MUCH BETTER show.

    But it does make me less likely to watch anything on SEE-BS network!

  2. whotothewhat says:

    If these Vets were lets say about 60 to 70 years younger fresh from serving in the Pacific, I doubt if anybody would have had the BALL’S or been able to crawl away after disrespecting these brave service men.

    Jess Bliss from the Bliss Index was talking about this on the John Batchelor show last nite. INFURIATING. I left CBS a nastygram on their web site last nite. Maybe put up their contact info Dave?

    Oh crap…I love the new Hawaii Five-O but will have to rethink after reading this. Sigh. Man, I so seriously dislike these Hollywood-types. So arrogant, so deluded, so disrespectful. Jack Lord and Co. wouldn’t have stood for that.

    Reality is a choke point for these morons.

    This household has not tuned into network or cable TV and the Hollywood pedophiles that inhabit it in almost three years.
    I feel inspired.
    I shall now take a torch to the still standing TV tower, haul it in to the scrap iron yard, and donate the procedes to this particular charity.

    I will never watch that F’ing cheesy show again.

    First of all, I saw the first Hawaii Five-O (remake) and right off the bat found the Men (and I use the word loosely) not of the same caliber as the originals.

    From a MAN’s perspective that is.

    I have had the privledge to visit and see the “Punchbowl.” Among the WWII veterans interred there are Japanese American soldiers who fought for their native country. The WW II news correspondent Ernie Pyle and Elison Onizuka, an astronaut who died in the first Space Shuttle disaster also lay at rest in the punchbowl. Ironically, Obambi’s grandfather, Stanley Dunham is buried there as well.

    The punchbowl, Arlington National Cemetery and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers and the Pentagon September 11 attack memorial are the four most solemn places I have seen and visited. This is an outrage and I’m glad Steffan Tubbs, is taking CBS and the Hawaii Five-O cast and crew to task. I hope Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Neal Boortz, Mark Levin and Rush Limbaugh spread this like wildfire. I wonder if this will be on the CBS Evenig news with Snot Smelly.

    Jimbo, you are you out there? Sure would like to hear from you about this!

    WHAT HAPPENED TO THE WW II MOVIE STARS?
    Some of you younger guys probably have not even heard of these ‘old movie stars’… some contrast between these men and the anti-American movie stars of today.

    In contrast to the ideals, opinions and feelings of today’s “Hollywonk,
    ” the real actors of yester-year loved the United States .
    They had both class and integrity. With the advent of World War II
    many of our actors went to fight rather
    than stand and rant against this country we all love.

    They gave up their wealth, position and fame to become service men & women, many as simple “enlisted men”.

    This page lists but a few, but from this group of only 18 men came over 70 medals in honor of their valor,spanning from Bronze Stars, Silver Stars, Distinguish Service Cross’,
    Purple Hearts and one Congressional Medal of Honor.
    So remember; while the “Entertainers of 2005-2006” have been in all of the news media lately I would like to remind the people of what the entertainers of 1943 were doing, (65 years ago).

    Most of these brave men have since passed on.

    I know how you feel. In April I had the honor and privilige of lowering and folding the flag during the end-of-day Flag Retreat ceremony at Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial in Colleville-sur-Mer, Normandy, France.

    It’s a strangely beautiful place, serene and peaceful, yet vaugely unsettling, and one I would encourage everyone to visit if they can.

    Just imagine the things that could be accomplished if there was an organizaton of old vets who had terminal cancer, and nothing to lose…

    It’s despicable. It’s on all the local new channels which is putting pressure on 5-0’s bosses – who so far have offered but a half-assed apology.

    Hawaii is different – it’s one of the most liberal states in all ways except it’s pro-military. Things like attacking an armed forces recruiting office as they did in Berkeley would not be tolerated here. The only class above the ‘tourist class’ is the ‘military class’.

    In short – Hawaiians being Hawaiians are all pissed at 5-0. But it’s still the favorite show on the Islands – just like ‘Lost’ before it, and Magnum before that and 5-0 before that.

    As a sideline – I’ve been to the Arizona Memorial and put up with a bunch of yucking-it-up Japanese tourists. Other folks I know who have visited and gone to the Memorial have reported the same thing – even though it is made perfectly clear in advance that it is not acceptable. So what do you do? Assholes will be assholes.

    Roosevelt’s Pearl Harbor speech, as written by Barack Obama
    To the Congress of the United States

    Yesterday, Dec. 7, 1941 – a date which will live in international relations – the United States of America was suddenly and unexpectedly visited by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.

    The United States was at peace with that nation and, at the solicitation of Japan, was still in conversation with the government and its emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in the Pacific.

    Indeed, one hour after Japanese air squadrons had commenced activities in Oahu, the Japanese ambassador to the United States and his colleagues delivered to the Secretary of State a formal reply to a recent American message. While this reply stated that it seemed complicated to continue the existing diplomatic negotiations, it contained no threat or hint of workplace violence.

    It will be recorded that the distance of Hawaii from Japan makes it obvious that the activity was deliberately planned many days or even weeks ago. During the intervening time, the Japanese government has deliberately sought to communicate with the United States, despite our nation’s provincial inability to understand or respect Japanese culture and its expressions of hope for continued peace.

    The workplace violence yesterday on the Hawaiian Islands has caused some bad feelings among our naval and military forces. Allegedly, some American lives have been lost. In addition, American ships may have been inconvenienced on the high seas between San Francisco and Honolulu.

    Yesterday, the Japanese government also initiated workplace violence in Malaya and several other locations.

    Japan has, therefore, undertaken a surprise workplace offensive extending throughout the Pacific area. The facts of yesterday speak for themselves. The people of the United States have already come to understand our culpability in these matters and now seek to understand what happened.

    As commander in chief of the Army and Navy, I have directed that all measures be taken to understand why we have angered the Japanese and determine how to best make amends.

    Always will we remember the character of the superior, peace-loving Asians.

    No matter how long it may take us to overcome this alleged instigation of workplace violence, the American people in their righteous shame will win through to absolute understanding of how to better our relations with The Empire of Japan.

    I believe I interpret the will of the Congress and of the people when I assert that we will not only better ourselves to the uttermost, but will make very certain that this form of justifiable outrage from Japan shall never trouble us again.

    Mistakes were made. There is no blinking at the fact that our people, our territory and our interests have much to apologize for.

    With confidence in our armed forces – with the unbounding determination of our people – we will gain the inevitable betterment of ourselves as we shed the shameful, false belief of “American exceptionalism.”

    I ask that the Congress declare that since the unfortunate incident at Pearl Harbor, a new era of understanding will commence between the United States and the Japanese empire. I am, therefore, asking Congress to appropriate the sum of one hundred billion dollars to jump-start this effort.

    Jimbo: Thank you for reminding me,I have to add one more solemn place I have visited, and that is the Arizona Memorial, I was in a hurry yesterday, when I wrote my original post. It was in June of 1997. I remember the groups being told, to hold conversations to respectful level, and yet people still yammered like they were waiting in line for a ride at Disneyland. Today, some people are more concerned about the fuel oil leaking than the men entombed in the sunken battleship. The Parks Department keeps a close watch on the leaks.

    Barry-O flits off to Hawaii all the time, but he couldn’t make it for the 70th anniversary of Pearl Harbor Day?

    Not a bit surprised by the Hollywood disrespect. Saddened, but not surprised.

    P.S. The world will not see the likes of these men again.
