My conclusion is, it was a female 2nd Lt, and I'll tell you why:
The extra duty position of Equal Opportunity Officer exists in every major command, mandated by political correctness and command emphasis from "echelons above reality". In every unit I was assigned to over 26 years, the EO Officer has been 2nd or 1st Lt, and has been black, female, or both, either of which always had an axe to grind.
The only exception to that rule was in my very last unit. The EO Officer was a female O-2 of Asian extraction, with a personal crusade. The Brigade Commander vented his fury during the EO brief, NOT because of the "we-must-be-fair-to-all" doctrine, but because any EO complaints would affect his OER. Follow the money.
Given the fact that the "fairness crusader" in this incident got the data from SPLC, with their recent publishing of over 1,200 groups considered extremists (most of them bring Tea Party and patriot groups), it's not a stretch to realize the extent to which Americans are being targeted.
Good morning Old Sarge. I almost thought I had written that reply, but hadn't even clicked on the thread. You hit the nail on the head with the last part of that sentence.
