Michael van der Galien was born in the Dutch city of Leeuwarden in 1984. For as long as he can remember, he has been obsessed with the United States. When he was 17 years old, he started blogging - of course about America. His articles have been published at Big Hollywood, Pajamas Media, Hot Air (the GreenRoom) and Right Across The Atlantic. He's also an editor for the Dutch conservative blog, De Dagelijkse Standaard.

This report is so outrageous, I don’t know where to begin. It’s the result of the war the European Left has been waging on our servicemen and -women for decades:

Sapper Anthony Walls, of the 21 Engineer Regiment, went to the Co-op in Croydon to buy beer after a gruelling 34-hour journey home from Kandahar.

The 27-year-old, said it was his ‘first hour back in the real world’ after four-and-a-half months helping build “the most dangerous road in Afghanistan”.

But when he arrived at the till to pay he was met with a blank stare from the cashier, who refused to serve him and called for her manager.

The store manager then told Sapper Walls that he refused to serve him and that there was “nothing” he “could do about it.”

Oh, no? Well, guess what? There was something he could do: going public.

Afraid for a major controversy, a spokeswoman for Co-Op immediately apologized. Sort, kinda. You see, she did offer her apologies but added rather ridiculously that the incident had been a “genuine mistake on the part of our two members of staff.”

A mistake? Really? This wasn’t a mistake at all. They knew full well what they were doing. They were simply honest about their hatred for soldiers. Well, their hatred for British soldiers that is – something tells me they have less problems with soldiers from countries ruled by leftists and / or Islamists, but that as aside.

This incident is yet more proof that it’s time for the European Right to end the Left‘s war on the armed forces – now. We’ve allowed them to smear the army for too long a time. It’s time to counter their propaganda and to name and shame them when they humiliate our brave boys and girls who, after all, put their lives on the line for their country and its allies.
