Soldier Of Viral ‘I Don’t Give A F*ck About Not Saluting US Flag’ Selfie Faces Up To 2Yrs In Prison [UPDATED: Doubling Down 2nd Selfie Mocks Taxpayers, Disses Uniform]

If Obama had a full grown daughter…

(Colorado Springs Gazette) –Fort Carson leaders launched an investigation into a “selfie” photo of a soldier posted online with a note that said she was hiding in her car to avoid saluting the flag. The soldier’s Instagram image went viral Tuesday, drawing a storm of criticism.

Pfc. Tariqka Sheffey, of Fort Carson’s 43rd Sustainment Group put the image on her Instagram account with a caption that read, “This is me laying back in my car hiding so I don’t have to salute the 1700 flag, KEEP ALL YOUR ‘THATS SO DISRESPECTFUL/HOWRUDE/ETC.’ COMMENTS TO YOURSELF cuz, right now, IDGA FFFF (acronym for I don’t give a ‘expletive’).”

Fort Carson officials say soldiers caught not saluting during the 5 p.m. retreat ceremony for the lowering of the American flag are subject to an “on the spot correction” – essentially a loud, one-sided discussion with a sergeant.

It’s one of two events per day that require soldiers to stop what they’re doing – even pull over and get out of their cars – to salute the flag in an act of tradition and military courtesy.

But Sheffey took the issue to a different level with her social media post. A quick Google search returned thousands of Internet entries for the quartermaster soldier. She was pilloried in hundreds of Twitter posts and thousands of Facebook comments.

Her picture went around the globe, drawing as much, or more, social media attention than Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel’s Monday proposal to cut the Army’s roster to pre-World War II levels.

The Army, alerted by complaints over the photo Tuesday, reacted at the highest levels. Fort Carson held a news conference with one of its most senior colonels in response to media attention.

The Army is taking the incident seriously and has launched a probe that could result in discipline, said Col. Heidi Hoyle, special assistant to the 4th Infantry Division commander.

“A soldier is required to salute,” Hoyle said.

At worst, the incident could lead to a court martial for insubordination or failure to obey regulations. If convicted for such crimes, a soldier could face up to two years in prison.

HA! Sheriff Joe Arpaio Punishes Inmates Who Desecrated American Flag With Bread & Water Diet

January 24, 2014 at 9:40 am

Way to go Joe! Teach the anti-American scum a lesson they’ll not soon forget.

PHOENIX (CNN) — A diet of bread and water is the punishment for dozens of Arizona inmates who allegedly defaced American flags placed in their jail cells.

The 38 male inmates are part of the Maricopa County jail system, which is under the control of controversial sheriff Joe Arpaio.

For their alleged unpatriotic acts, the sheriff said Thursday, they’ll survive on bread and water for seven days.

“These inmates have destroyed the American flag that was placed in their cells,” Arpaio said. “Tearing them, writing on them, stepping on them, throwing them in the toilet, trash or wherever they feel. It’s a disgrace … this is government property that they are destroying, and we will take action against those who act this way.”

The flags are part of a push for patriotism in county jail cells that includes listening to the “Star-Spangled Banner” every morning and “God Bless America” every night over the intercom system.

Arpaio implemented the American flag jailhouse initiative in November.
……
He was elected to his sixth term as sheriff for the Phoenix area in November 2012.

Court Considers “Mexican Heritage Day” US Flag Ban, School Fears Offended Hispanic Punks Violent Reactions

October 17, 2013 at 6:41 pm

04-30-2006
Mexifornia; where celebrating Mexican heritage supersedes American heritage.
Where waving Mexican flags on American soil is tolerated, while US flag shirts are not.

Dozens of students walked out of Live Oak High School carrying Mexican flags in response to a small group of students who wore American flag t-shirts on Cinco de Mayo while other students were celebrating their Mexican heritage.

That is the outcome of laying out the red carpet for an entire group of ungrateful, self-entitled punks.

So now it has come to this.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A federal appeals court on Thursday wrestled with the novel question of whether it was offensive for Northern California high school students to display the American flag during a school day dedicated to celebrating Mexican heritage.
……
So the question before the court Thursday was whether public school administrators can ban patriotic displays of the American flag on shirts on “Mexican Heritage Day” at a campus plagued by violence and racial strife. The administrators at Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, about 20 miles south of San Jose, said they were concerned that the shirts would lead to violence and verbal altercations.

They told the students to turn the shirts inside out or go home. The students went home, and a month later, their parents filed a lawsuit, alleging the school and its administrators violated their children’s free speech rights.
……
“It’s all about not being ashamed to wear the American flag,” Kendall Jones, a parent of one of the students, said to reporters outside the hearing Thursday. “What’s wrong with that?”
……
“Do you have to wait until they duke out in the courtyard,” before administrators can step in and ban the shirts, Judge Virginia Kendall asked.

The students’ attorney Robert Muise argued that the “potential” the shirts would cause disruptions on campus was a “risk” the school had to take in deference to the students’ free speech rights to wear the American flag T-shirts.
……
Judge Sidney Thomas suggested the case may need to be returned to a lower court and sent to a jury to determine whether the shirts posed an actual threat that day.

The shirts posed no threat, they are inanimate objects. Radical, aggressive anti-American ‘dreamers’ are [the] threat. They should be kissing the ground they walk on not defecating on it. If the sight of the US Flag is so damn offensive to them, I suggest they celebrate their Mexican heritage in a Mexican hell hole of their choice.

U.S. Flags Displayed To Honor Marine Broken In Half By Anti-American Scum [Photo]

October 17, 2013 at 5:34 pm

BrokenFlags-Oct15

Spitting on the US flag and on our troops; how ‘progressive‘!

(KHOU) –THE WOODLANDS, Texas — A military family is trying to understand why anyone would vandalize dozens of flags flying outside their Woodlands home.

“This is what I came home to,” said Sonja Norman, as she showed KHOU 11 News small flags with snapped poles. “They were stuck in the ground and you can tell they were broken in half.”

Last week, the Veterans of Foreign Wars asked them to line the entrance to their subdivision with flags to honor Private First Class Noah Norman who was coming home from the Marine Corps on leave.

Sonja noticed the damage to about 30 small flags when she got home from work.

“I was very upset, very hurt,” Sonja said. “I think I wanted to cry more than anything when I saw that.”
……

The family has filed no police report and no one will be looking for the vandals but it’s disheartening for this patriotic family.

“What it says to me is that we are living in very dark times in this country that you cannot display pride for the military anymore,” Sonja said. [...]

And stuffed them into garbage bags…  as if they were yesterdays trash. SPIT.

(The Middlebury Campus) –A 2,977 flag memorial was ripped out of the ground in front of Mead Memorial Chapel shortly before 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 11 by a group of five protestors claiming that the flags were on top of a sacred Abenaki burial site.

The flags — meant to commemorate each of the 2,977 lives taken in the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks — have been posted in the grass between Mead Chapel and the Davis Family Library annually in a joint effort between the College Republicans and Democrats for nearly 10 years.

Ben Kinney ’15, president of the College Republicans, spent two hours putting the flags outside of Mead Chapel on Tuesday night, and happened to be walking up the hill towards the chapel when he saw four females and one male stuffing the miniature flags into black trash bags.

“I got there just as they were taking the very last of them out of the ground and putting them in piles,” he said. “At first, I the group was comprised of College Democrats helping put the flags away before the rain rolled in, but then I realized what they were doing.”

Kinney said the protestors told him they were “confiscating” the flags in protest of “America’s imperialism.”

And a disciplinary investigation is underway. GOOD.

Statement from Middlebury President Ron Liebowitz
Sept. 12, 2013

To the Middlebury College Community,

Yesterday, on the 12th anniversary of the horrific attack on our nation on September 11, 2001, a group of Middlebury students commemorated the loss of nearly 3,000 lives by placing American flags in front of Mead Chapel as they have done a number of times in the past. Sadly, a handful of people, at least some of them from our campus community, this year chose to desecrate those flags and disrespect the memories of those who lost their lives by pulling the flags from the ground and stuffing them in garbage bags.

We live in an academic community that fosters and encourages debate and discussion of difficult issues.  It is also a community that requires of all a degree of respect and civility that was seriously undermined and compromised by this selfish act of protest.

Like many of you, I was deeply disturbed by the insensitivity of this act.  Destruction of property and interfering with the rights of others to express themselves violates the standards of our community. The College has begun a disciplinary investigation of this incident.

There is always something to learn from differences of opinion.  In this case, the disrespectful methods of the protesters overshadowed anything that might have been learned from the convictions they claimed to promote.  We will not tolerate this kind of behavior.

Ron Liebowitz

Watch Rapper Lil Wayne (@LilTunechi) Desecrate US Flag In New ‘God Bless Amerika’ Video –”Sweet Land Of Kill Them All And Let Them Die”

June 18, 2013 at 6:49 am

Trampling the flag of United States of America; the ultimate symbol of the  land of the free, where a talentless pos hack like Lil Wayne can live large spewing ignorant, disgraceful, mindless crap.
Watch at around the 14 second mark as he looks down at the grounded flag then continues stomping all over it.
YouTube Preview Image

Lyrics excerpts:

My country ’tis of thee,
Sweet land of kill ‘em all and let ‘em die

God bless Amerika
This so godless Amerika
I heard tomorrow ain’t promised today
The end of time is like a hour away

[Verse 2]
Damn, military minded, lost and can’t find it
The stars on the flag are never shining

Lil Wayne’s shoddy attempt at damage control via Twitter:

I’m not buying it.

His first mistake; that the flag was intentionally allowed to fall to the ground. Which he admits.

Secondly, once it fell to the ground he made zero effort to avoid stomping all over it, thereby exacerbating the situation.

Lastly and most notable, his anti-American lyrics/song title compliment the disgraceful action. That being said, in my opinion the entire scene was staged from beginning to end.

Lil Wayne has every right to freely express himself, but clearly he is not man enough to own up to his own actions. Making him a cowardly Lil ‘bitch’.

Chanting “USA USA” At High School Game Has “Racial Overtones [AGAIN]

February 13, 2013 at 8:55 pm

USA is the new slur word…

usa chant racist 3

Austin Medeiros “Got suspended for 5 days from Adolfo Camarillo high school for having American flags at a basket ball game because it could be seen as “offensive” I don’t understand it. After we left in protest we decided to run back in and chant USA! They forced us out and aren’t aloud on school grounds. @stefanvalenzuela @task4ce_gym @griffinsrt8 #standup #loveourcountry #USA”

Oh noes! Racist patriotic flag bandanas too!

Todd Starnes reports:

A group of students at a California high school basketball game were told to remove patriotic bandanas and stop chanting “USA, USA” because school administrators wanted to be sensitive to other spectators.

The incident occurred during a basketball last week between Camarillo High School and Rio Mesa High School in Ventura County.

A school administrator pulled aside four boys and told them to either remove their American flag bandanas or leave the game. The boys complied but returned to lead the crowd in a chant of “USA, USA.”

Camarillo High School principal Glenn Lipman told the Ventura County Star that the students were told to remove the bandanas as a “precaution” – because the two schools have “diverse student bodies.”

Both schools have a large Hispanic student population.

Student Austin Medeiros and the other boys were suspended for their actions – but the punishment was later lifted by school officials.

Still, students are upset over what happened and staged a protest at the school’s flagpole by wearing red, white and blue.

“We’ve done it always,” Medeiros told the Ventura County Star. “It’s something we do. It’s the same group of friends. We’re all very patriotic.”

But Gabe Soumakian, the superintendent of the Oxnard Union School District, told Fox News there were “racial overtones” to the chant….
……
The superintendent believes this is a “teachable moment” for the entire school.

“They have to respect everyone,” he said. “When you go to a game – you cheer for your team and you don’t make any derogatory comments or make inappropriate comments toward the other team.”

In lieu of a red carpet for the Anti-American Idol to walk upon? Heh.

(The Blaze) –Today, President Obama is slated to travel to the University of Iowa to campaign in the crucial battleground state. The Obama campaign’s “advance team” has been making preparations for the president’s appearance since Monday, sources at the university tell TheBlaze.

But no one was prepared for the photo that was taken at the Obama speaking location as the Democratic National Convention wrapped up in Charlotte, N.C.

The photo is of the preparation for the president’s speech on the quad of the historic Iowa campus. In the near distance sits the stately old Iowa Capitol, and sitting on the ground, a gigantic American flag.
……
The photo was posted on the University of Iowa’s official Facebook page with the caption: “Preparations continue on the Pentacrest for tomorrow’s Presidential visit.”  The image has sparked outrage and disgust from many viewers
……
As per protocol, the Obama campaign has been in charge of the preparations for the speech, according to officials at the University of Iowa. However, at the time of publication, we had not heard back from the Obama campaign about whether the work to place the flags was contracted out. Visible in the picture is a forklift, a clear security perimeter and other various professional equipment. Also seen in the photo are what seem to be many workers milling about.
…….
At the time of publication, the picture of the flag lying on the ground was still up on the official University of Iowa Facebook page.

Continued >>>

*It is no longer up on the University of Iowa’s Facebook page.

Iowa Now the university’s student paper reports:

This event is hosted by University Democrats. It is not an official University of Iowa event.

That explains it…
