Navy SEALs ordered to remove 'don't tread on me' Navy Jack from uniforms
KFI News ^ | 11/04/13 | Carl Higbie

The Navy Jack is the ‘don’t tread on me’ flag, one that has earned a revered place in America’s naval history and a beloved place in sailor’s hearts, through its use for over two centuries. This symbol of America’s naval ferocity has spanned our country’s entire existence, flying from the masts of the Continental Navy during the war of independence, to today’s War on Terror. In fact, an amendment to the Navy code called SECNAV Instruction 10520.6 clearly states that as of 31 May 2002 all ships are to fly the flag throughout the duration of the War on Terror.

So why would ranking SEAL commanders ban the historical symbol? Is the proverbial top bass banning the flag? Is President Obama?

“The Jack is too closely associated with radical groups.” We must assume that this thought policeman embedded in the SEAL community is speaking of the Tea Party, whose flag (which also dates from the American Revolution) depicts a snake with the same defiant slogan as The Navy Jack.

Scariest thing about Obamacare is that these frickin boneheads that think they know so much about technology and so much about the US economy and so much about healthcare, also think they know so much about the military as well.

Scary farkin thought!!

I thought the administration decided they could keep it if they just removed the word “Don’t” from the flag.

Considering the current government budget, that should be a tapeworm. At least an earthworm is useful.

I’m certainly not a “duplicate post Nazi”, but for crying out loud, this article has been posted multiple times each day, every day, for at least the past week.

Not Snopes, but fact.

Uniform regulations do not allow them to wear them unless they are deployed or in the field. Regulations are being updated. Just not yet.

Everyday? Do you mean every day?

Holy crap, I never expected to get so many replies on a throwaway response about a duplicate thread.

I could post the cure for cancer and nobody would respond, but the first time I make a one sentence comment about seeing the same damn thread for the 5th time in a week, and I get more responses than I ever have before.

Sheesh, this site has really gone downhill since 1998. Misspelled words everywhere, duplicate posts all the time, constant barrage of dumb vanity posts, and this site is still begging for money just to keep the lights on. No wonder the conservative movement is hanging on by its fingernails if this is the way we operate.
