On Saturday, the Cobb County GOP and Cobb County GOP Women held some kind of veteran’s celebration. After the event, Ox put the following up on Twitter:
Honor to sit at head table @ the Veterans Celebration hosted by the Cobb GOP & Cobb GOP Women in Marietta. There were true heroes present.
What he forgot to mention is that he paid $1,000 to sponsor the event, and the sponsorship came with a seat at said head table. It wasn’t an honor he earned in any way – he bought it. You see, the people this celebration was honoring served with honor and integrity, even if they never actually saw a battlefield. Ox uses his goons to bully 15 year old boys. He didn’t even belong in the same BUILDING as those veterans – as the organizers of the event well knew, hence the reason he had to BUY his seat of honor at the event.
I agree with him that, as with any gathering of veterans, there were true heroes present – but he didn’t even honor them by staying for the entire event! Instead, he left early – proving that this was not about the Vets, as it rightfully was, but about further manipulating people and events to fit his own twisted desire for power.
The men and women that event honored have faced things in their lives that I am grateful I will never experience. They put their lives and their fortunes on the line so that I wouldn’t have to. There truly is nothing I can ever do or say to repay the debt I owe each and every person who has ever strapped on the uniform of the United States Armed Forces.
But Ox buying his way into an event that is supposed to honor and thank these men and women, and then betraying them by leaving early? Dang … I really didn’t know a grown man could get any lower than bullying a 15-year-old kid.
Ox just did.
