Army Times Runs Highly Offensive ‘Zombie Deployment Guide’ Piece

I knew there would be negative consequences from the extremely inappropriate and highly discriminatory CDC blog post about the ‘Zombie Apocalypse’ from a couple of months back but I have to say I wasn’t expecting this from the Army Times:

The U.S. government is now acknowledging what many have feared for years: The zombies are coming. Top officials are urging all Americans to prepare for war.

Assistant Surgeon General Rear Adm. Ali Khan, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s director of public health preparedness, issued an official warning May 16 on the Public Health Matters blog. It’s not a joke (although maybe it should be).

Yes, like some sort of incestuous hydra we have one semi-official media outlet of the US government feasting upon another to produce more hatred of the Differently Animated. Delightful. Can the DHS get in on this? Anyone else want to waste time and spread disinformation about Undead Americans with the imprimatur, official or otherwise, of the United States?

Moving on, the article is chock-full of delightful tips on how to treat your fellow Americans like garbage just because they’re lacking a pulse:

First and foremost, he says, you’ve got to keep your head.

To fight zombies, fight like zombies — with raw, unbridled fearlessness, brute strength, a taste for blood and a keep-it-simple approach to tactics.

“We’re going to have to redesign warfare as we know it,” says Navy Lt. J.L. Bourne, author of the “Day by Day Armageddon” series of novels examining worst-case zombie scenarios. An active-duty aviator just finishing a tour for a major intelligence agency in Washington, D.C., Bourne says, “We’re going to have to come up with ways to round up these things and eliminate them en masse. There won’t be enough bullets left to kill them all.”

The article cites a lot of Anti-Zombie authors or would-be authors, including Scott Kenemore and the Zombie Research Society’s own Matt Mogk, who charmingly suggests using a baseball bat because a blade might get stuck in your Undead victims.

Uggh I’m really starting to hate those guys.

The piece even goes so far as to recommend specific firearms and configurations for maximum murder of Undead Americans, passages so despicable and disgusting I will not quote them here.

I have to say, I’m stunned. I know Army Times is published by a private newspaper group and isn’t an official publication, but geez; think how many of our soldiers are going to read this tripe and get the idea that assaulting, even rounding up and massacring innocent Undead civilians is somehow ok.

That sort of hatred and divisiveness is simply Un-American, and as a nation we can do better. We have to do better.

Shame on Army Times.
