You did nothing wrong; it was this exchange I responded to: “[–]HAGOODMANAUTHOR 2 points 11 hours ago
Your grandfather must have been a courageous, and amazing human being.

Or possibly an unwitting conscript. Let’s be honest.”
What the first poster wrote is a courteous and respectful acknowledgment of a grandfather’s service in wartime. What the second poster wrote smears that service by implying that conscripts were some how “unwitting” somethings or another – what is totally unclear since “unwitting” is usually combined with the word “stooge” to imply that the grandfather was a clueless fool for simply being drafted in wartime; then adds the “lets be honest” as if phoney revisionism from a sophmoric 70-year retro-perspective view is somehow relevant or appropriate.
That I found to be way off the wall. As far as mentioning Americans and not Brits or Canadians at D-Day…well, the subject is a photo of American troops going into one of the American beaches at Normandy, is it not? Then someone else chimes in that not all Normandy vets were draftees. So the whole thing spun out of control after this one poster completely derails the conversation with an off-the-wall slur that was basically meaningless. It is sort of typical of certain Reddit posters to sling this sort of grit on the tracks of a conversation to derail it.
