Gary Stein Case: Military Board Recommends Dismissal For Marine Who Criticized President Obama On Facebook

Friday, April 06, 2012

"Armed Forces Tea Party" was the name of his Facebook page. He should be bounced for that alone. You cannot endorse a political party or group as a member of the armed services. These policies are what separate the US military from the Brownshirts and the SS. The military is apolitical for very good reasons. This guy has to go.

A military board has recommended dismissal for a Marine sergeant who criticized President Barack Obama on his Facebook page, including allegedly putting the president's face on a "Jackass" movie poster.

The Marine Corps administrative board said after a daylong hearing late Thursday at Camp Pendleton that Sgt. Gary Stein has committed misconduct and should be dismissed.

The board also recommended that Stein be given an other-then-honorable discharge. That would mean Stein would lose his benefits and would not be allowed on any military base.
