USN ad: "Global Force for Good"
US Navy ^ | 2/2/2013 | T-Bird45

Posted on 02/02/2013 2:28:08 PM PST by T-Bird45

See the linked ad

TOPICS: Military/Veterans; Miscellaneous; Society
KEYWORDS: globalforce; killkillkill; navy
This ad gets my goat -- any ad for the US military should be something about mess with the bull and you get the horns. We kill you and break your sh*t...

Same comment applies to the USMC ad with the Lt. handing out relief supplies while making leadership-like arm motions..."Follow the peanut butter!"

Judging from the commercials they air here it seems as though the navy is staffed with everyone but white males. Guess they don’t need any.

The motto just sounds like propaganda. It’s an attempt to justify U.S. intervention anywhere in the world. Goebbels is in hell kicking himself that he didn’t think of this slogan first.

We used to have a word for big socialist countries spreading military might around the world

I saw a different version of this last night on TV. I heard an oath from a sweet young thing declaring that she would “follow the orders of those above her” but I don't remember hearing the word “Constitution”. I may have missed it but I doubt it. Have we come to the point of Hitler's 1938 love fest at Nuremberg where he had the SS swear allegiance to him personally and not to the state?

I don't wish to compare the US Navy to the SS but her oath did not sound like the familiar "enemies foreign and domestic" either so WTF is going on here?

There have been several of these (going on for a couple of years now) and they creep me out.

A little too much “Big Brother knows what’s good for you” and “It takes a village” for my taste.

I know you’ve heard me say this before but if you don’t watch anything else today, WATCH THIS ONE. And please pass it along.

I don’t know how I missed them, but these two BILL WHITTLE PJTV videos (under 30 minutes total) were put up on the net in early 2010. If you can’t watch them now, bookmark them for later, grab a cup of your favorite beverage and be amazed at the level of TREASON the idiot Obama cultists have wrought.

I first heard about the 35 jihadist training camps here in 2010. There are almost certainly MORE now. These former federal agents will help you understand why they are training muzzie combatants on our soil.

As for the “problem” in the Pentagon, as I mentioned in an earlier email, 30 or so years ago, PC/diversity/tolerance nonsense infiltrated the service academies. The guys now wearing the brass hats and stars in the Pentagon came out of those early classes.

That problem will only get worse in coming years as that indoctrination has only intensified. We are no longer training warriors who are tasked to kill the enemy and break enough of his stuff to cause him to quit the fight. We are now indoctrinating folks who are best summed up by the Navy TV recruiting tagline that the Navy is not “A global force for good.”

To say that we’re in BIG trouble is gross understatement.

Before all this Liberal Free Trader Globalist nonsense....referring to our US Armed Forces as Global would have gotten you some prison time. I blame the liberals in both parties for this vaginaizing of our military

The first time I heard this all I could think of was Kevin Costner say “Let’s do some good” right before he raided the umbrella factory.

It may be a small thing, but words still have meaning. The Navy has global reach and does lots of good things, but to describe it as a "Global Force" seems to me to misrepresent what is an American force, whose members are sworn to uphold and defend the U.S. Constitution:

"Enlistment Oath.— Each person enlisting in an armed force shall take the following oath: "I, ______, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God."

We do not take an oath to be good Samaritans, although our duties may sometimes involve humanitarian missions. We take the oath to defend and protect the U.S.A. and its citizens and ads like this undercut that mission.

Keep Faith with the Fallen of Benghazi! Let the Obama Regime, for once, tell the Truth!

Fiat Justitia, Ruat Coelum!

Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

Thankfully the oath I repeated for 24 years made no mention of following anybody’s orders.

“.....staffed with everyone but white males.”

That reminds me of when I lived in California years ago.

In the 1980’s, in January of every year, the Los Angeles Police Department placed display ads in the employment classified section of “The Los Angeles Times.”

The display ads had the heading, “New Year, New Career” and were urging men and women to apply to be police officers in the LAPD.

The display ads were different every week, but they always showed four head photos of patrolmen. The rookie cops were never white males. They had photos of a black female, an Asian male, a blonde white female, a Hispanic male, a black male, etc. But never a white guy.

In the early 1990’s, I found out that LAPD recruiters required white male applicants to have a written test score of 110%. White males had to have a perfect score on the written test and they had to be veterans of the 1991 Gulf War....they were given 10 points additional for their military service.

Minority males and females of any race did not have to attain a perfect written test score nor did they have to be veterans of the Gulf War. At least that was what I was told at the time.
