Skip to comments.Navy investigating SEALs unit that rode with Trump flag in Kentucky convoy

....[SEALs unit spokeswoman Lt. Jacqui] Maxwell described the investigation as a command inquiry that could lead to punishment if warranted. She also said it wasnt immediately clear if those involved were SEALs or support staff.
.... The paper reported Thursday that a Kentucky-based anti-Trump group was one of the first to post video of the incident on its website, calling it a fascist tactic that is not acceptable. RESIST!!!
[Apparently a KY goat farmer took the photo/video and posted it as a lark, and then some KY SJW noticed it and alerted the Antifaghi or whatever they're called.]

There would have been no investigation if they had done the same thing with an ObaMao flag back when he was CIC, I can guarantee it!
It’s still a political symbol, so it’s prohibited.
>Its still a political symbol, so its prohibited.
Screw the rules. The libs ripped them up so we can do the same. Fly that Trump flag proudly.
And we would've been rightfully upset about it, instead of making excuses for it. The regulation exists for a reason.
Nope.. the U.S. military doesn't roll that way. He's the commander in chief, not a king.
Trump is commander-in-chief. He has the final say on this issue, if he so chooses.
He is their
COMMANDER IN CHIEF
“Nope.. the U.S. military doesn’t roll that way. He’s the commander in chief, not a king.”
In any case, the strongest punishment this warrants is standing tall before the man and taking an ass chewing.
This is like the "no political comments in churches" rule. As long as it is a Democrat constituency making political sermons and providing buses to carry parish members to the polls, it is noble and good. But let Rev. Falwell or Dr. Dobson make some comment deemed political from the pulpit and they hammer comes down.
Screw that. They either need to apply the rule evenly or get rid of the rule. I salute the SEALs for drawing attention to the double standard we have allowed to exist for so long.
Probably for the first offense, yes.
Take the investigators and the complainers along on the next SEAL assignment and see if they change their tune.
Shouldn’t they be investigating who in the Pentagon leaked the SEAL raid in Yemen to Al Qaeda?
The should be required to report to the Commander in Chief for a verbal reprimand.
When there, President Trump should tell them not to do it again, over coffee, cookies, and a photo op.
hussein allowed military members to wear their uniforms while attending homo parades and rallies. All political, no harm, no foul, but this is different?
I sent our 3rd Marines in Helmand AFG various types of skull & crossed bones flags and they flew them on the radio masts during the Battle of Marjah , Very cool .....later on they brought one back to me , signed by every Corpsman in the Company . It’s a treasure
Actually, I do not know damn well. Do you have any examples of the military not enforcing this regulation when the flag or other symbol is Democrat-oriented? I suspect that you do not.
