The most memorable moment in #SecondPlacePresident Trump’s speech to Congress last week came when he spoke directly to the widow of slain Navy SEAL Ryan Owens.
Some saw Trump’s tribute to Owens as supremely presidential, others saw it as a “crassly manipulative” ploy to absolve himself from blame for the bungled raid that led to Owens’ death. Some thought he had truly honored the visibly grief-wracked Carryn Owens; others thought he had cynically exploited her for his own political self-aggrandizement.
The regulars in Reddit’s Men Going Their Own Way subreddit have a rather different take on the whole thing.
As they see it, the real issue is that Carryn Owens is an “attention seeking whore [who] most probably cheated on the poor guy like almost all military wives do.”
In a post with several dozen upvotes, the Reddit MGTOW who calls himself No-M3rcy tears into Carryn Owens for her imagined infidelity and alleged attention-seeking.
Ryan fought and died in Yemen while the woman comes on camera and gets all the attention. She becomes a “national hero” and this becomes one of the “best political moments in U.S. history” for doing nothing but crying on camera. Women sure do know how to put up an act. Give it some time and you’ll see her pop up like many military widows on interviews and other things. So much for private grief and respecting your husband.
Trump is the one who turned the whole thing into a political spectacle; Carryn committed no crime other than having feelings in public. How showing her obviously genuine grief is supposed to be disrespectful of her husband I have no idea.
After the Trump speech, everyone forgets about the poor guy and she gets all the media attention for days. The guy is disposable just like all of us and the woman is always the victim. He served his role and now no one gives a shit about him.
Really? Because when I do a Google News search of his name I get this:
This story is not going away, and until we get to the bottom of why the raid failed it shouldn’t.
But the saddest thing is that this attention seeking whore most probably cheated on the poor guy like almost all military wives do. And there he is fighting for her freedom and providing for her. It’s disgraceful how male vets get treated and cheated on.
There is of course zero evidence that she cheated on him; this is just straight up misogyny.
Sometimes they even get Booed when they come back home.
Yeah, that did happen sometimes — during the Vietnam war. Well, there was one case 5 years ago in which a gay soldier was booed at a Republican debate, though he was booed for being gay, not for being a soldier.
And worst of all, even though she is a post-wall hag (her husband was mid 30’s so she’s probably the same/younger), some Beta simp will probably step in to “save her” from her misery and marry her regardless of the fact that she is a rapidly aging single mother full of wrinkles.
Only a MGTOW could look at a conventionally attractive and not-actually-old-at-all woman insensate with grief and think “yeah, I bet she’s got wrinkles, what a hag, she should die alone!”
Given their bizarre fixation on the alleged “rapid aging” of women and the evils of showing any signs at all of age, I can only wonder what’s going to happen when all these MGTOWs start getting wrinkles themselves.
I hate to tell you this, MGTOW dudes, but men age too, and they don’t all age like fine wine.
She will forget all about her husband and latch onto the new Beta.
Most widows and widowers do move on, which may or may not involve dating or marrying someone else, but they never forget the partner they lost.
What a Gynocentric society we live in. Women will just use you as a resource. Even if you are dead, they will still use you for attention.
Trump is the person who turned everyone’s attention to her; he’s the only one using anyone here.
I think that if she really cared about him she would have stayed home and grieved in private and not use him for sympathy points.
Well, it’s good that no one but your fellow MGTOW losers gives a shit what you think.
