We can think of any other day of the year when a piece suggesting we need a holiday to remember war resisters might just be a throwaway take, but Vox made sure to celebrate Memorial Day by arguing we should set aside time to remember those who’ve have tried their hardest to prevent war.
“We ought to also set aside time to remember those throughout American history who have tried hardest to reduce [war], to prevent unnecessary loss of life both American and foreign: war resisters,” writes @dylanmatt. https://t.co/GLKLOOcuO5

We at Vox are going to do everything we can to distract from the real purpose of this holiday.

Or, we could just commemorate Memorial Day as it was intended.

This is basically "all lives matter".

They already have International Day of Peace, Sep 21.

Everybody: Wow, Vox couldn’t possibly come up with worse takes.
Vox: Hold my beer.

The soldier above all others prays for peace, for it is the soldier who must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war.

What a day to suggest this. 🤯 just pick a different day any other day.

Fine. Pick a day. This is not that day. Delete this tweet and post it then.

Pick another day for this bullshit.

Liberals, every May: "Is there a way we can co-opt Memorial Day and dilute its intended focus on mourning for those who died in battle?"

You guys sit around the office and try and think about what could be possibly the most insane way of spinning national holidays and such into random pieces about nonsense?

No, we ought not to.

Consider this monument. It is to American and South Vietnamese War dead. The so called “peace movement” forced a US withdrawal which then precipitated the charnel house in South East Asia.
How ever well intentioned, this was the result.
This day is for the War Dead. pic.twitter.com/6YYlGwBNmJ

You want to remember the people who wanted to leave Nazi Germany alone?

Yes, let's see your heroic monument to the war resisters of 1942.

We should have stayed out of WWII and let Hitler finish the job.

I guess Vox has finally discovered the virtue of Confederate secession? The expectation that separation > civil war?

It's stuff like this that quite literally makes it so I celebrate every time you guys lay off workers. I'm going to buy a bottle of champagne when you finally close. In a just world, everyone who has ever worked for you would be die homeless.

Maybe we should celebrate it on Barack Obama’s birthday, seeing as he won a Nobel Prize for stabilizing the world and ushering in eight years of peace.
