Posted on 06/10/2013 2:32:31 PM PDT by lowbridge
A member of the U.S. Army Band who said he was reprimanded for having anti-Obama bumper stickers on his personal car, serving Chick-fil-A sandwiches at a party and reading books written by conservative authors like Sean Hannity is now facing Article 15 charges which cropped up shortly after he went public with his complaints.
Master Sgt. Nathan Sommers, a decorated soloist with the Army Band, is being charged under a federal law that permits commanding officers to conduct non-judicial proceedings for minor offenses.
Sommers is accused of giving a superior officer the wrong date for a doctors appointment. Hes also accused of failing to carry out an order. In order to comply with that order, Sommers would have had to disclose private information about his autistic sons medical records.
The charges were handed down one day after Sommers told Fox News that he was facing discrimination and persecution because of his conservative political and religious beliefs.
The timing does seem strange, retired Navy Commander John Bennett Wells told Fox News. Its suspicious. No matter whats happening it looks like a graduated attempt to build a case against him on some really ridiculous charges.
Wells is representing the 25-year veteran who, until last summer, had a spotless record.
The Military District of Washington disputed allegations that Sommers had been reprimanded or disciplined.
The Soldier is not, and never has been, facing retribution and punishment from the military for having anti-Obama bumper stickers on his car, reading books written by conservative authors like Mark Levin and David Limbaugh, and serving Chick-fil-A sandwiches at his promotion party, Public Affairs Director Michelle Roberts told Fox News in a written statement.
However, Wells said thats simply not true and he said hes got official Army documents to support his claims.

The libtard homo’s will rise to the top of the military chain of command, until you have a bunch of Nazi SS goons willing to do anything to the general populations
THAT is why they pressed for homos in the military
This guy is much worse than Nidal Hasan.
Sure sounds like political oppression of a soldier.
Yep. Our very own little North Korean Army here in the USA, complete with the sordid, slimy “leaders” who have more in common with Nicolae Ceaucescu than they do with Patton or Eisenhower. Someone needs to post names of these “leaders,” as they will be the ones who shoot at Americans when Obama goes full blown Idi Amin on the Country.
A new offense is being added to the Uniform Code of Military Justice—serving while heterosexual.
I thought Ernst Röhm was long gone.
Really? I will have no problem believing this, if it is true. But I honestly want to see proof that he was reprimanded for serving Chick-Fil-A.
I figure it is only a matter of when, the USSA military officially creates the positions of “political officer” in various units. Just like their role model of USSR, in order to screen out unreliable personnel and ensure proper decision making.
They tried that with me once. I demanded a “General Court Marshall” which is a right. The C.O. backed off so fast that he left a contrail. It would have made him look like the A$$ that he was.
Hasan was work place violence...this is SERIOUS...thinking conservative thoughts.
Reminds me of that scene in the first Band of Brothers episode where Winters demands a Court Martial for one of Sobel’s petty little offense charge.
The look on Sobel’s face was priceless. Great acting by David Schwimmer (sp?)
Is he still allowed to read Fahrenheit 451?
There's no green for islam on it.....
It's disgusting that anti-freedom should infest our military!
This ‘decorated soloist’ is singing the blues.
“I figure it is only a matter of when, the USSA military officially creates the positions of political officer in various units. Just like their role model of USSR, in order to screen out unreliable personnel and ensure proper decision making.”
Actually, the position of “political officer” has been around for years in the US Military. In the US Army it’s called the Equal Opportunity (EO) Representative. The EO Rep is the enforcer of all things politically correct and “Diversity” is her watchword.
In the Army a unit commander fears only three people; His rater, JAG Officers and EO Reps. Not necessarily in that order.
It’s like living a some creepy banana republic - or Cuba ... is that what we’ve come to?
We are 0bama's superiors, and his disrespect is having a demoralizing effect on us.
I suspect that the noose is tightening on all Americans considered enemies of the current administration: tea baggers, gun owners, church goers, free enterprise entrepreneurs; in other words, anyone who does not support Obama.
There are plenty of headlines, but no real action to change the laws or punish the guilty across this deeply corrupt administration.
Could Rush be correct about a coup?
Eh, depending where he is and if he is happy there, he might want to wait until he gets PCS orders then decline or apply for a transfer. Probably no more promotions but the end is not near.
This MSG needs to just do that.....ask for a court-martial. The post commander and JAG would recommend strongly for the commander to drop the charges
If you are referring to tea party types, please do not use the crude term the Obamedia appliued to us.
The less enlistments mean a smaller military and then Obama could say, “We have to start the National Civilian Force I wanted from the start.”....Of course, it will be hand-picked by Obama’s henchmen....
We are so screwed..................
The GESTOPO stikes again.
repeat....you can not trust our military any more....you can not trust them.....
less military...less govt....fewer people willing to break the backs of fellow Americans for a gol darn pension.!
we are now in an era where govt employees/retirees will throw the rest of us in the gas chambers just to keep collecting....are people not realizing this?
We are witnessing a brilliant overthrow of America. The Soviets are freezing along in victory. Sick beyond belief.
Article 15? Never once met an E-9 who didn’t at least have one.
Exactly what The Deceiver and The Adversary wants to create via his puppets. Divide and conquer.
This is why, far-from-perfect as he was, I voted for Romney. There were only two choices, although not what I wanted.
A Soldier charged and receiving an Article 15 does not have to accept it. He can request a court martial. The risk he would take though is that a court martial (no matter what the charge) is considered a felony conviction IF he is convicted.
