Chris Rodda has an amazing post about this image.
The official story is that all of the Marines thought the SS stood for Sniper Scouts.
Now I do believe that could be true about most of them. But at least ONE had to purchase this flag. Chris Rodda explains how she tracked down the exact website that this was purchased on. Guess what they mainly sell? Nazi shit.
Obviously the Marine Corps doesn’t want or deserve an association with the Nazi SS. I think it’s sad that one hateful bigot set all of these guys up for failure. That guy should not be given a free pass, and a claim of ignorance. He needs to be investigated (in a meaningful way).
Screw damage control at this point. Get the bastard.
Read Chris Rodda’s post for more details… or pretty much any newspaper because it seems to have gone viral. Mikey Weinstein and Chris Rodda at the Military Religious Freedom Foundation are on the front lines of the culture war. So you should hear it directly from them – they are getting major praise for exposing stuff like this. Keep it up MRFF!
