This story has popped up this morning on several websites. No one is talking about race, when race is obviously at the center of the rebellion among blacks in all walks of life that is brewing nationwide.
But first, let’s see the story and Facebook video:
Excerpt from WEARTV
PENSACOLA, Fla. (WEAR) — A Facebook post by a sailor assigned at NAS Pensacola is creating a social media firestorm after she tried to mimic San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
The woman, who has not been identified, shared a live video on her Facebook page of her appearing to protest by sitting down during the National Anthem while on the base.
In the Facebook video, the woman shows viewers her sitting on a bench as the National Anthem is played reportedly on base. She then holds up her left fist in protest.
“The U.S. Military Police WTF Moments” Facebook page referred to the U.S. sailors actions as a “disrespect at flag call”. The video had been seen more than 44,000 times as of Thursday night.
Lt. Commander Kate Meadows said the Navy became aware of the video last week and disciplinary action is pending.
“We’re required to stand for colors, for the National Anthem, in and out of uniform,” Meadows said.
According to the Uniform Code of Military Justice, Naval service personnel are required to stand and face the flag whenever the National Anthem is played. Meadows adds that they routinely teach sailors appropriate use of social media.
The sailor will not be discharged from the Navy, though many online and on our Facebook poll expressed she should. Others think that some sort of punishment is necessary.
“She has to face the consequences, she should face the consequences,” John Likens said.
Likens agrees that she has a right to Freedom of Speech, but rules are rules in the military. Ashley Rietz agrees and added that the protest is counterproductive and only furthers a divide.
“Sitting during the National Anthem or posting something to social media isn’t actually making a difference,” Rietz said. “It’s a lot of hot air compared to the actions you could take to help people.”
The U.S. sailor is heard on the Facebook saying she is “proud of herself”. She goes on to say what she did was “small but significant for her”.
Obama took the lead in fomenting this spreading disrespect and disloyalty to the country that freed blacks from slavery at a terrible cost of the white man’s treasure and blood. He interjects his mulatto mug into every racial incident, always siding with blacks, no matter how unjustified.
Hillary has joined in as well by endorsing Black Lives Matter and through other racial pandering.
If Obama and Hillary built the bomb, mulatto football player Colin Kaepernick lit the fuse.
The way that pandering toward blacks goes, I expect that soon the playing of the National Anthem will be banned on university campuses, such as at football games, and in pro sports as well because it’s “racist” and offends nonwhites. Certainly, most black singers will now refuse to sing the National Anthem.
Just as Confederate statues and the battle flag have been obliterated, so will the National Anthem. At some point a new national anthem will be proposed and approved by a weak-willed populace that has failed to learn that you can’t appease blacks. Give them an inch and they want a mile.
A quick, dishonorable discharge meted out to this sailor might derail the rebellion, but given the military’s political correctness today, the chances of that happening are not good.
