How can one lead when one despises those who follow?

I disagree, that's the perfect place for them. Let them be the first ones up on the front lines. Why should Republicans and Conservatives have to die when they aren't willing to protect themselves. I'd bet that many would change their affiliation real quick . . .

This **** works both ways. When I was in 25 years ago, I knew a guy in my company who drove up to LA specifically to participate in the LA riots. He was fairly open about his disdain of white people, but that was all before social media.

As a veteran I recall these lines from my oath at swearing in. "...against all enemies, foreign and domestic."
The US Declaration clearly states "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal,
that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty
and the pursuit of Happiness."
If an active duty service member cannot see the wisdom in those words they should be mustered out or resign.

Guess the 1A does not apply to the military.

This particular individual shared his opinion , IE. expressed his 1A rights, while serving
under The Uniform Code of Military Justice. Yes, he has his rights as a citizen. However,
he does not escape the purview of military service. The rules are different.

The 1a does not mean there are not consequences for words.

That kind of racism is considered "understandable" by libTards.

Would the USMC have taken the same stance if it was a black espousing Black Lives Matters or support of Louis Farakkkhan?
