Patton Is Turning Over In His Grave

Looks like the military is continuing to decay into a politically correct social establishment that is more concerned with what a soldier reads or eats than his ability to do his job. MSG Nathan Sommers, a member of the Army Band, is in trouble because he is conservative and is not a fan of the current Commander in Chief.

Sommers served Chick-fil-A at his promotion party (all of which he paid for with HIS own money) and he tweeted that it was in honor of the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (DADT). The party happened around the time that liberals had their pink panties in a twist about the owner’s stance on gay marriage. Sommers could not attend the Chick-fil-A appreciation day so he had them cater his promotion party.

Remember when the phrase “never leave your buddies behind” meant not leaving them on the battlefield?

He got in trouble for that.

He had anti Obama bumper stickers on his car (as well as anti Democrat in general) and he got in trouble for that. He was told he might be violating the Hatch Act (he was not).

He was caught reading a book by David Limbaugh (Rush’s brother) backstage before a performance. He was told the book was offensive and he was causing disruption within the unit.

Really? Were soldiers in the unit allowed to read Obama’s books? Are they allowed to read books by hate mongers like Al Franken? Are they allowed to read Rules for Radicals?

Even if the book was offensive the soldier had a right to read it.

His unit has been monitoring his tweets and is not happy he follows and has retweeted tweets by Mark Levin.

At what point do people realize this soldier is being harassed by his Chain of Command? At what point do we stop trampling on his rights because someone else might be offended?

There is no right not to be offended in the Constitution, period. While there are standards of conduct nothing I have read shows Sommers is a problem (he had one retweet where he used a word that he regretted using but that is an exception and not the rule).

I stand with you MSG Sommers. You have a 25 year record of exemplary service to this nation and have served more honorably than the guy in the WH.

Illegitimis non carborundum…

Stand tall brother.

Cave canem!
Never surrender, never submit.

    At what point do the people of the US stand up and fignt against this evil ruler? Some people still support him and are totally blind to what he is doing. May the Lord have mercy on us.

      NOW is the point where we need to start standing up and fighting back. It’s past time and with God’s mercy we can change the course of events this evil man has set in place. That’s right, I called him evil, NSA snooper.

    I am completely disgusted that the rights this man stands for are not being afforded to him! When did anyone get to decide what you can or can’t read? I know the military has its own code of conduct and I realize that certain things may be “inappropriate” while in uniform but that does not mean that anyone has the right to determine what he reads, puts on his car, serves at his party, or chooses to tweet over. His opinion is not something that anyone has a right to give him orders to change.

    If someone was doing this to a pro-O supporter the whole world would be rioting. But let’s not forget, they are doing the same things slowly but surely to all of us. There are some books that you will no longer find to read because SOMEONE might find them offensive. Tweets and FB posts are pulled for the same reason (or your account is suspended).

    Let’s be clear, BD is 100% right. There is no right NOT to be offended. You are entitled to feel and think what you will. If someone else is offended by it then that is there problem and not yours. They are free to walk away, not read that book, not listen to that station, not follow that tweeter, whatever. We have to accept the rights granted to hate groups (KKK, Black Panthers) to say and parade and march or whatever. Guess what, there’s no law against hate (only hate crimes which is another assinine invention but not going into that). The Constitution doesn’t guaranty your right to live hate-free. So we need to stop mollycoddling people and start standing up for our rights instead of letting a select group of idiots determine which ones are allowed to enjoy those rights and which will be punished.

  3. Big Dog, you are absolutely correct. Members of the military have been ordered not “to read the accounts in the media of the ubiquitous spying of US intelligence agencies on all of us”. If a soldier is observed violating this dictum he can be ratted out by one of his colleagues who has taken to heart Big Sis’ urging to: “If you see something, say something!” “If individuals are troubled by what the state is doing, whether it be spying on innocent individuals or committing war crimes, they should confine their complaints to government officials! If you object to the corruption of the Mafia, take the matter up with your godfather! If you are critical of the corruption, violence, looting, wars, and other actions of the government, write a letter to your congressman – who has helped to create these conditions – and ask him to do something about it. How did protest work out for Sophie and Hans Scholl of the White Rose Society in National Socialist Germany?
