“Your grandfather didn’t sleep in a foxhole in a far away land…so you would surrender your guns”

"You grandfather didn’t fight in a world war so you would [X}” is a meme that has been printed on several images.

“Your great grandfather didn’t sleep in a foxhole in a far away foreign land clutching a picture of your great grandmother holding your grandfather or grandmother when they were a baby so people could show their papers to buy food” was posted on Twitter by Alan Roberts on January 7, 2022. “Your Grandfather didn’t sleep in a foxhole in a far away land, clutching a picture of your Grandmother so you would have to show papers to buy food.. You pathetic, weak minded, fools...” was posted on Twitter by @RealMattCouch (a now deleted account) on February 5, 2022. The saying refers to the Covid-19 (coronavirus) vaccine passports that some governments mandated to enter businesses.

“Your Grandfather didn’t sleep in a foxhole in a far away land, clutching a picture of your Grandmother so you would Surrender Your Guns. You pathetic, weak minded, fools” was posted on Twitter by Pj Linares on June 16, 2022. “Your grandfather didn’t sleep in a foxhole in a far away land while clutching a picture of your grandmother so you would surrender your guns” was posted on The Patriot Post in an image on June 28, 2022, and again on The Patriot Post on August 1, 2022.

I’m right here with you, pal. My grandfather would normally say “I didn’t sleep in a foxhole for two years and kill Italian fascists for you people to turn the heat down.” I like to believe he’d say the same now
