What just happened to a Liberal Navy sailor proves that military brass has not been been terminally inflicted with political correctness during the Obama era.
A United States Navy Reservist stated on Facebook that she was stripped of her security clearance after she refused to stand during the National Anthem. Janaye Ervin claimed not all Americans are free and so standing to honor the National Anthem and the flag would make her a hypocrite, Popular Military reports.
“The Navy has decided to punish me for defending the Constitution and has taken away my equipment I need to do my Naval job,” the Navy Reservist claimed on Facebook. “I made the conscious decision to not stand for the Star Spangled Banner because I feel like a hypocrite, singing about “land of the free” when, I know that only applies to some Americans.”
The decision by Navy Reservist Janaye Ervin not to stand for the National Anthem was shared on social media by a Black Lives Matter affiliate. Ervin had served as an Intelligence Specialist in the Naval Reserves for eight years prior to her disgusting display of disrespect for the country she had sworn an oath to serve and protect.
Janaye Ervin will be proud to stand and honor America and the flag again…but only if her misguided and delusional Liberal woes are properly addressed. “I will gladly stand again, when ALL AMERICANS are afforded the same freedom,” she said.
According to a report by the New York Daily News where Ervin was quoted, the Navy Reservist has had both her security clearance and face threats of jail. There is no proof of the jail threats, but some punishment for her horrific and unpatriotic behavior was definitely warranted.
Perhaps the Navy Reservist took her faux tale of injustice to Facebook in the hope Black Lives Matter activists and Liberal protesters would rally around her, taking to the streets and chanting in unison on her behalf. None of that happened, but when reporters caught up with Ervin just before Christmas, she still did not appear sorry for her wretched act of disrespect.
“To be honest, I never really thought about the flag my entire life,” the Navy Reservist said during an interview with the International Business Times. “I had no reason to: It’s just a flag,” she added, “and the National Anthem — I don’t think I’ll be saluting it or standing for it ever again.”
So….Janaye Ervin joined the United States Navy and served for eight years and never once thought about the American Flag or was moved during the singing of the Star Spangled Banner? She is either an idiot or was merely using the enlistment for personal gain, such as a college education, and was never truly concerned about the safety and security of the United States.
Ervin was a “military brat.” Her father, brother, and grandfather had also served this country. That makes it even more unfathomable she had never thought about the flag in her entire life.
“Petty Officer Janaye Ervin has fulfilled her obligation of enlistment and was honorably discharged from the United States Navy,” a Navy Reserve Forces spokesperson told the media. She has been fired from her job with government contractor Leidos after her security clearance was revoked.
