Tomb of the Unknown Soldier disrespect not tolerated
November 20, 2012 By: Scott Paulson
Taking the expression some people just dont think! to a new level, Lindsey Stone thought she was being funny when she posted a picture of herself giving the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery "the finger" - the middle finger - while appearing to shout at the national memorial in October. After posting the pic to Facebook, somehow thinking her friends would enjoy the photo, she most definitely found out otherwise. As of Monday, the backlash has been severe for Stone.

After the tremendously negative reaction to the photo, she Facebook-messaged on October 20:

Another Obama voter in the making....
I don’t give a rat’s ass if it was just a joke. What a turd.
She typifies the ugly inside-and-out sort of leftist garbage that would be expected to behave this way. I hope she’s fired for this. She’s a piece of human debris with no respect for the men who’ve laid down their life for her “right” to do this.
Who snapped the picture for her?
Note to Lindsey. Being a “douchebag” has consequences. It is truly disturbing that this being works with people with disabilities. Is she a “douchebag” with them, too?
Both she and the photographer are on unpaid leave while their employer investigates. They were on an employer-sponsored trip!
Just imagine the kind of person who makes a flippant and obscene gesture like that at someone who gave his life so she could run around being an obnoxious jerk. What kind of poisonous atmosphere creates nitwits like this?
I see this breed in Madison all of the time, typically under 40 and single.
The idea is, if the perp thinks it’s funny,satirical or merely ironic, you have no reason to be offended.
Women in America are reaching the gutter even faster than men are.
And we wonder about the election results.
THIS is what they are taught in the schools and by the mianstream media.
omg. What an disgrace.
“It was just a joke”. The world’s oldest excuse when the perp finds out nobody else thinks she is funny, or cute, or smart.
And here you see another example of what is wrong with America today.
I think she and Jane Fonda are now in the same category.
Freedom of speech applies to EVERYONE! Even jerks like this.
Very, VERY glad I wasn’t there to witness this atrocity. I’d be in jail right now.
Get your children OUT of the public schools.
Much of today’s U.S. society does not respect the military and those that disrespect our military men and women are increasing in numbers.
What kind of poisonous atmosphere creates nitwits like this?
This is simple:
These people have decided that this is no longer “one Nation, UNDER GOD”....
Each is master, or mistress, of their own fate, until they REALLY need HIM.
“Some people just don’t think”
I don’t think it’s that....rather, I think the witch just didn’t give a damn.
Bury them in the same plot, close to a 7-11...
Yes, she is free to do it/say it. She is NOT free from consequence of action.
Although it’dd be a lot of fun to kick her between the legs hard enough that her gaping puss got a mouthful of grass after flying six or seven feet through the air. It’d be even funnier if she broke that finger.
I’m waiting for the conditional apology....
“If I’ve offended anyone....”
END RESULT: She and her jackass friend will sue their employer and get a very big settlement. So, she and her asshat friend will profit mightily from this transgression. Mark my words. And, she’ll be invited on talk shows, The View, etc., to thunderous rounds of applause.
Don’t forget . . . Loyal and patriotic Americans lost big time on November 6th.
We loyal and respectful Americans will pay for her stupidity.
Yesterday I was watching The Five on FOX and the fat fu_k Bob Beckel said that Jane Fonda should not be judged by “just a one-time photo.”
Many of us vets know the real story of how Jane Fonda committed multiple acts of Treason which caused the deaths of American POWs.
A good book written by Mark Holzer laying out the facts of the multiple counts of Treason commited by that bi_tch can be found here:
“Aid And Comfort”: Jane Fonda In North Vietnam”
By: Henry Mark Holzer & Erika Holzer
Foreword by Col. George Bud Day
(7 x 10)
Publication Date: 2002
Jane Fondas visit to Hanoi in July 1972 and her proNorth Vietnamese, antiAmerican conduct, especially her pose with an anti-aircraft gun used to shoot down American planes and her propaganda broadcasts directed toward American troops, angered many Americans. In their eyes, she was guilty of treason, but she was never charged by the American legal system. Instead, she has made millions, been the recipient of countless awards, and remained an honored American icon.
This work investigates Fondas activities in North Vietnam and argues that she could have been indicted for treason, that there would have been enough evidence to take the case to a jury, that she could have been convicted, and that a conviction probably would have been upheld on appeal. It also considers Fondas early life and the effect it had on her behavior and beliefs in her later years, her audience of American pows who were forced by the Vietnamese to listen to her broadcasts condemning them as war criminals, her arrival in Vietnam and how it was viewed by American servicemen and civilians, the crime of treason throughout history, and the only Congressional inquiry into her actions, which resulted in the governments decision to take no legal action against her. Texts of Fondas radio broadcasts to American servicemen comprise the appendix.
Henry Mark Holzer is professor emeritus at Brooklyn Law School. Erika Holzer is a lawyer, novelist and essayist.
Buried my father (WWII) and mother at Arlington this year. The disrespect shown by this creature is beyond disgusting. And look how she is dressed. Blue jeans, tank tops, t-shirts, etc. are unacceptable attire for visiting our nation’s most hallowed ground.
“What kind of poisonous atmosphere creates nitwits like this?”
A country whose children have been taught in schools and by the media that it conducts wars for oil or just to kill “brown people”. A country they were taught was built on oppression and genocide. The left has done an excellent job revising our history and demonizing everything that made America great.
You’re right - she has a right to be a moron.
Doesn’t mean, though that she shouldn’t be univerally shunned.
But the “whoa whoa whoa” remark makes it perfectly clear that she has NO remorse for the act and she just thinks everybody else is overreacting. A mindset issue.
Grab the Constitution. It doesn't say you can say what you want without consequences. It says "Congress shall make no law....".. you still can face consequences for the choices you make, such as being an idiot. The employer is completely free to fire her ass if they feel she is a detriment to their company and everyone else is free to criticize and mock her all the way to her next job asking "do you want fries with that?"
I wish one of the honor guard had bitch slapped her with the butt of the M1-Garand they carry. I know they wanted to.
Freedom of Speech also carries with it the burden to use that freedom responsibly. Which is why is it illegal to yell ‘fire’ in a crowded building, etc.
People who abuse freedoms need to understand the consequences of their ‘exercise’ of their freedoms.
Freedoms, when abused, can be taken away.
Why are so many younger adults so childish?
It’s quite weird.
If this experience does not move you...you're walking dead and unAmerican.
I can say, if this were to have happened during my visit to the tomb, this lady would have been picking herself up off the ground.
That would be a vertical buttstroke, since she is crouching down to try to stay out of view of the Sentinals.
Fat, stupid and liberal is no way to go through life, Lindsey ....

I hope my email helped oust these to a holes
Her employer already seems to be doing the right thing. She is on unpaid leave which usually means your ass is fired but we have to make sure the lawyers clear it so you can’t sue us.
