Hurricane-relief Guardsmen tossed out of armory – for Victoria’s Secret show

The Victoria’s Secret show must go on — even if it means kicking out hardworking men and women in uniform.

Dozens of National Guardsmen, and Army and Air Force personnel who have been sleeping at Manhattan’s Lexington Armory in between hurricane-relief shifts are being booted — to make room for Victoria’s Secret models in anticipation of Wednesday’s runway show.

About 300 uniformed personnel have been bunking down at the armory at various times since Sandy hit.

But their numbers will be reduced to 60 by Wednesday for the event, which is featuring Rihanna and Justin Bieber.

The military workers will be relocated to the Jacob Javits Center, Harlem Armory and hotels such as the Marriott East Side and Ramada East Side — where they’ll bunk five to 10 per room on the government’s dime, sources said.

    Did you hear Jerry Jones put a Victoria’s Secret in the Cowboys Stadium? What he needs to do is put those models into Cowboys uniforms and maybe he will have a winning team. Cowboys suck and go Colts!

    Well, a lingerie show is, like, soooo much more important, than icky hurricane people and stuff.

    For the LOVE of Pete, what the heck is going on with these people? Have they NO sense of priorities or propriety? Answer: no.

    They should just bunk up together. Those models would probably appreciate real men.

    Let’s face it, folks — the *Entertainment Industry* (which includes fashion and spectator sports) is God in this culture. Nothing, not even the aftermath of natural disasters, must *Stop the Show*.

    Well, as long as they aren’t smoking or drinking 32 oz sodas, no problem!

    I’ve long since stopped asking “can this get any worse or more stupid?” because, as many of these stories from Hurricane Sandy prove, yes, it can.

    At an Armory? While troops are garrisoned for disaster relief?

    This is a fucking disgrace
