These cadets thought they would make history and stir controversy but throwing up the “black power” hand gestures during their West Point graduation photo.
If the gesture was meant to show support for the Black Lives Matter movement, then the women may have violated a Department of Defense directive that prohibits enlisted members from engaging in “partisan political activity” while in uniform. This overt display of the Black Lives Matter movement is not, in itself, wrong, but to do so while in uniform is completely unprofessional and not in keeping with what the USMA stands for.
Blatantly making racist statements while in uniform on a military base is grounds for a dishonorable discharge. Welcome to the racist America that Obama has fostered.
From The Root:
The U.S. Military Academy at West Point in New York is investigating a photo showing 16 black female cadets in uniform with their fists raised in a salute that critics are calling a gesture of solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, the Army Times reports.
“We can confirm that the cadets in this photo are members of the U.S. Military Academy’s Class of 2016,” West Point’s director of public affairs, Lt. Col. Christopher Kasker, said in a statement. “Academy officials are conducting an inquiry into the matter.”
According to the Army Times, not many details are known about the photo, although it has since been shared wildly in military circles, along with the claim that the women are supporting BLM. Critics are reportedly concerned that the photo violates the Department of Defense Directive 1344.10, which cautions against “partisan political activity” when in uniform.
How can these women work alongside others when they have already segregated themselves? The military is supposed to work together as a team, not group themselves by color.
This is not representative of America; this is tribalism everywhere you turn. Every group organizes and fights for their members. In-group loyalty is paramount. After these women leave the military, they will fill roles in corporate management, community administration, and government leadership. Uppermost in their minds will always be their in-group loyalty. That will have consequences most of which won’t be happy.
There’s only one group in the U.S. for whom this in-group loyalty is strictly forbidden, but I just can’t remember who they are. I do remember they are evil — very evil — at least that’s what television, movies, and the MSM say. Maybe the other tribes can punish them.
Obama will bring these cadets to the White House and immediately promote them all to the rank of General; nothing would surprise me with this socialist in charge.
Why doesn’t someone ask them what they were trying to represent? Beyonce started this crap.
