Former President Carter’s grandson, James Carter IV, and liberal blogger Ana Marie Cox live in a very different America than Rick Perry–they both failed to identify the Luttrell brothers who joined him on the platform, and they had no idea why those men were there.
When former Texas Gov. Rick Perry announced his run for the White House Thursday, he had two very special friends join him on the platform: retired Navy SEALs Marcus and Morgan Luttrell. Marcus is the author and subject of the book and hit movie “Lone Survivor.”

Luttrell’s and Perry’s relationship is both deep and personal, yet liberal flunkies chose to mock that relationship, and Luttrell’s service to our country, with unflattering and ignorant tweets.

Carter, a Democrat who lost the 2014 gubernatorial race in Georgia in a landslide to Gov. Nathan Deal, tried his best to recover when he was called out for his disrespectful remark.
@Rjbub77 Sure. It was a joke.
— James Carter (@JECarter4) June 4, 2015
Twitter users hardly believed that.
@JECarter4 ask him how funny it is. — Rob Bub (@Rjbub77) June 4, 2015
@JECarter4 I doubt your grandfather, a Navy veteran himself, would find that “joke” funny. Go ask him, we’ll wait. @Rjbub77

@JECarter4 @Rjbub77 No it wasn’t. And even Democrats are tired of using that lame excuse, thank you. — Atomic Monkey Squad (@SantasTavern) June 5, 2015
@JECarter4 @Rjbub77 As are you.

Cox didn’t bother trying to justify her comments, doubling down on her shameful tweet by calling the Luttrells “sweaty bearded men.”
All the sweaty bearded men on stage with Perry. All of them. #RickPerry — Ana Marie Cox (@anamariecox) June 4, 2015
The train of ignorance continued when her followers chimed in, to be immediately corrected by those who knew the truth.
or, you know. Marcus Luttrell. @Longshore_Law @anamariecox

.@anamariecox those LOL sweaty white beard guys are Morgan & Marcus Luttrell. SEALs, recipient of Navy Cross & Purple Heart. Thanks 4 asking — David Burge (@iowahawkblog) June 4, 2015
@iowahawkblog @anamariecox Just how much vodka is she swilling to be this ignorant?

@iowahawkblog .@anamariecox Did a memo go out to the DNC friendly reporters to collectively mock Navy Seals and war veterans? — NorseThunder (@Odinsonsmjolnir) June 4, 2015
Cox tried to play it off, saying she knew about the “Lone Survivor” movie, but simply didn’t recognize Luttrell.
@seanmdav I’m actually familiar with the name and movie! Just didn’t know what he looked like.
— Ana Marie Cox (@anamariecox) June 4, 2015
Then she compared the men to Jesus.
@mypalfish I think Jesus, a sweaty bearded man, could probably take a joke. I admit I would recognize Him more easily than Luttrell. — Ana Marie Cox (@anamariecox) June 5, 2015
@anamariecox @mypalfish you would not recognize Jesus if He rode into your bedroom on a white horse with an angelic choir. #Godmocker

We might expect more from Carter, given his lineage, but Cox is a dyed-in-the-wool leftist. Neither of these two clowns was funny, but the saddest part is they didn’t realize just how unfunny they were.
