I’m absolutely disgusted by what Bill Gates has said in this article. It’s clear that he has zero appreciation for the sacrifices of World War Two veterans, who experienced unimaginable horrors in combat and beyond. For Bill Gates to compare himself to these veterans, simply because he’s been criticized for his role in the election, is a total insult to their legacy.
It’s also highly disheartening to see a public official like Bill Gates, who is supposed to be serving the people of Maricopa County, acting in such an unprofessional and cowardly way. He needs to take responsibility for his role in the election and stop trying to play the victim, claiming he has PTSD. It’s an embarrassment to the people of Maricopa County and to the memory of our brave veterans.
As a 51 year old woman, I cannot begin to express my disappointment and outrage over the comments made by Bill Gates. His blatant lack of understanding and appreciation for the incredible hardships endured by World War Two veterans is appalling. His attempt to use PTSD as an excuse for his role in the election is insensitive, self-serving, and offensive. He should be ashamed of his actions and immediately take steps to rectify his mistakes instead of trying to reduce the impact they have had on him. I have profound respect for those who fought during WW2, and it’s disgraceful that their legacy has been sullied in this way.
I find it appalling that Bill Gates would make this comparison to try and defuse the criticism surrounding his role in the election. His actions show an utter lack of respect for our brave World War Two veterans, whose service and sacrifices far exceed anything we can imagine. To compare himself to them in an effort to avoid personal accountability is completely unacceptable - both for Bill Gates and anyone who holds public office.
It’s important that individuals in high positions of power are held accountable for their words and actions, so that they adhere to a standard of integrity and professionalism. Anything less shows a complete disregard for the public they serve and reflects poorly on Maricopa County. Such behavior should not be tolerated, and we need to stand up against any attempts to diminish or dishonor the memory of our fallen heroes from World War Two.
