Not a bit of worship I take part in.
Don't misunderstand me: I have tremendous respect for the military, for members of the military. I consider them patriots by default, doing work that is essential for the nation, in ways more fundamental than most. I think, at least until recently, it tended to instill some great character in its members.
But I don't get behind this weird, self-effacing, 'If a veteran says something you better listen and hold your tongue, you're in the presence of a hero!' schtick. No, not even for the wounded. And certainly not for family members of the dead. You don't become a hero by proxy.
I'll be even more blunt: I have vastly more respect for veterans who share my values and my worldview, or are in the neighborhood enough. That may sound chilling, but people forget that the whole point of the reverence of the soldier was that they were supposed to be the defenders of our shared values, putting their lives on the line to do exactly that. Remove those values and remove the automatic reverence. At that point you're just dealing with, at best, daredevils - I saw a few in the Turkish coup footage (not even from soldiers!) - and at worst, enforces of monstrous will.
Once upon a time, it was possible even for people of different political parties to largely be on the same page with some common values. That time is passed. Insofar as Khizr Khan treats his son's death as license to attack and belittle anyone who rejects muslim culture and massive muslim immigration, he deserves a 'fuck you' and little else. And make no mistake: his supporters have the same attitude for every soldier or grieving family member who stands against them.
