So Much For Supporting Our Troops

The Left claims that it "hates the war, but supports the troops." Is this what they're talking about? (Yes, this story made the rounds a few days ago, but I just saw it.)
Recently, there have been local incidents in which military personnel have been verbally assaulted while commuting on the Metro. Uniformed members have been approached by individuals expressing themselves as anti-government, shouting anti-war sentiments, and using racial slurs against minorities.
While in uniform, military personnel can't really do much else except just take it. The cowards who assault them know that, I'm sure. Would they be all in the soldiers' faces if they could fight back? I doubt it.

There's no report on whether or not anyone stood up for the soldiers. I'd like to think there was someone who told those expressing their First Amendment rights to sit down and shut up, but I know better. People just can't be bothered to do the right thing these days. Pathetic.

Honestly, if this is how they "support the troops," I don't think the troops want it. Really.
