The General has two colorful nicknames: “Mad Dog” and “Warrior Monk.” (Gee, I wonder what his temperament will be like as the “civilian” leader of our Defense Department).

He also has many colorful quotes; the best among them being:

  • There are some assholes in the world that just need to be shot. (I don’t necessarily disagree with this quote, which is reminiscent of the lyrics from the Jane’s Addiction song “Pig’s in Zen”: Some people should die; that’s just unconscious knowledge…; however, when coupled with the following quote, and the fact that he will be responsible for our military, it kind of perks my ears up).
  • Actually, it’s quite fun to fight [terrorists], you know. It’s a hell of a hoot. It’s fun to shoot some people. I’ll be right up there with you. I like brawling.


There are better audio recordings of the song than in this video; however, the optics of this one best suits my sentiments toward the impending administration. WARNING: This video is NSFW.


One thought on “General James Mattis Fun Facts

  1. Yes, Mattis has said some hackle-raising things that raise serious questions. But I am one of the old farts who cares about obsolete notions like fairness, so I suggest that people follow the link U provided and be sure to read #9 in the “9 unforgettable quotes by James Mattis” article. Thanks for the link.
