An arrogant Navy sailor who recorded herself refusing to stand for the “racist” national anthem just got the punishment she deserved.
Petty Officer 2nd Class Janaye Ervin refused to stand for the anthem while on reserve duty at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in Hawaii. She claimed she was trying to make a statement about the persecution of blacks in America, the International Business Times reported.
According to Navy rules, enlisted soldiers must stand and face the flag whenever the national anthem is played. Moreover, if in uniform, they must salute the flag. And if in casual gear, as the unnamed soldier was on the morning of Aug. 31, they must stand in attention and place their right hand over their heart.
The sailor who recorded herself did neither…
Instead she remained seated and raised a fist to show solidarity with the (Marxist) “Black Power” movement.
Afterward, she delivered a “manifesto” blasting the U.S. flag and anthem as racist:
“I just didn’t want to stand,” Ervin said. “I can’t stand for this song knowing that the song isn’t for me, being black. The song doesn’t represent me at all. To be honest, I never really thought about the flag my entire life, I had no reason to. It’s just a flag.”
The video immediately went viral and generated massive outrage across the nation.
Now the Navy has taken decisive and permanent action…booting her out of the Navy.
Petty Officer 2nd Class Janaye Ervin was stripped of her security clearance, assigned to menial labor for a several days, then shown the door, according to CTribune:
Ervin was read her rights before being given a warning about potentially compromising her security clearance — one that she needed for both her civilian and military jobs. (She was then) stripped of her clearance and escorted out of her secure workplace.
Good. Officers with divided loyalties have no place in our military, let alone in intelligence services.
She is now a former Petty Officer, 2nd Class.
Ervin is now playing the victim, claiming “racism” and saying she was never informed which order she was violating.
As Shari Savage of CT points out, that is complete B.S…
Really? It’s the 10th general order for sentries, which is taught in Navy boot camp. You memorize the 11 general orders until they are burned into your brain. Violation of any one of them is subject to Article 92 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice and is subject to whatever punishment is decided by court-martial. That’s how the military works, and for good reason. Everyone knows it going in.
Some vets are still upset, saying she got off too easy, since Obama’s Navy reportedly handed her an honorable discharge.
She dis-honored herself and our flag, and deserved a full court martial. But it is good to see her out of the Navy any way we can get it.
Expect to see the usual parade of racial hucksters screaming about her treatment, and calling for a “civil rights” investigation by the Department of Justice.
Unfortunately for Ms. Ervin, Al Sharpton and others, Barack Obama is also being shown the door, and the new president has little patience for such nonsense.
