AIRMAN CLAIMING RELIGIOUS DISCRIMINATION MIRANDIZED, MAY FACE COURT MARTIAL
Big Government ^ | September 15, 2013 | Kerry Picket

Posted on 09/15/2013 2:09:17 PM PDT by Bratch

SMSgt Phillip Monk, an airman who claimed he lost his job due to his Christian beliefs, was mirandized by Air Force investigators over two weeks ago. According to his attorneys at the Liberty Institute: 

During a meeting [two weeks ago], Air Force investigators read Liberty Institute’s client SMSgt Phillip Monk his Miranda rights, alleging that SMSgt Monk’s religious discrimination complaint was false. Monk, a devout Christian, believes the claims are a retaliatory act by his former commander, who relieved Monk of his duties and reassigned him after Monk could not agree with his commander’s position regarding same-sex marriage. In the military, making a false official statement is punishable by court-martial.

“I was stunned and immediately felt that this was a retaliation against me for coming forward with my religious discrimination complaint,” said Monk. The military prohibits retaliatory action against service members, when a complaint is filed against a commanding officer. The Air Force will decide as to whether or not to charge Monk with filing a false official statement.

We are living in the center of the Marxist revolution Obama was dreaming of in the 80s. We are not provoking them. But they do not intend to leave us alone. Yet, we do not intend to submit.

The collision is a certainty, unless one side gives.

You WILL enthusiastically and voluntarily support gay marriage and gay anything. We will NOT tolerate you merely tolerating it.

Hopefully the conservative lawyer group in Virginia will be this TopKick’s defense team. He is being railroaded, imho.

“Monk, a 19-year veteran of the U.S. Air Force, was relieved of his duties when he responded to a question from his commanding officer Major Elisa Valenzuela, an open lesbian.”

1. No “open lesbian” should be in uniform, much less an officer. We need to roll “women in the military” right back to November 1941.

2. The article elsewhere said that Monk refused to answer the question.

3. Silencio consentum est. Anybody else see the parallel? Or am I the one who is late to the party?

“As I recall, Obama repeatedly used the phrase “When the revolution comes....” In my mind, I remember thinking that Obama was blindly sticking to the simple Marxist theory that had characterized my own views while I was an undergraduate at Occidental College. “There’s going to be a revolution,” Obama said, “we need to be organized and grow the movement.” In Obama’s view, our role must be to educate others so that we might usher in more quickly this inevitable revolution”

He’s a Monk claiming to be a Christian?

Well if there is somebody that would know about false official statements it would be an open lesbian major, who up until a few years ago was lying about her status on a daily basis. Like to see her background investigation paperwork to see if she listed a spouse-like relationship.

I am glad I retired from the USAF, before all the PC BS. I have told my son not to go into the military at all, or at least not under the slime balls running the show now.

Unfortunately, I think you are correct. As someone else said, the collision is a certainty, unless one side gives, and the perverts are never going to give. The collision IS a certainty.

“As I recall, Obama repeatedly used the phrase “When the revolution comes....”

In our country’s recent history we’ve celebrated diversity in our population as if it were a good thing. However, one look at world history will show you that no country with a diverse population of different races, languages, and religion has long survived.

Countries don’t naturally form with a diverse population, and when in the past they’ve occurred it’s usually been as a result of armed conquest. These unnaturally formed countries have either melded together into a single population made up of one mixed race with one language and one religion or they’ve come apart, and they’ve usually come apart with extreme violence. The longer these diverse populations are forced to coexist with one another without mixing and becoming one, the more the hatred grows among them and the more violently they break apart, but break apart they will, or genocide will settle the issue once and for all.

Why is this and why can’t we all just get along? The truth of the matter is that we (the human race) just aren’t as civilized as we would like to think we are. Genus Homo sapiens isn’t that long “out of the trees” and the veneer of civilization is very thin, to non-existent, upon us all. We’re all carrying the genes that got us here and some of those genes carry a very basic survival instinct that has allowed us to survive thus far.

This most basic of all survival instincts is self preservation and it’s the one that warns us to be very wary of those who are different than us, our family, and our tribe. Those who possessed this survival instinct survived and reproduced, and those who had no fear/distrust of strangers didn’t survive. Over the years, this survival instinct has been referred to as tribalism, nationalism, ethnocentrism, racism, and various other isms, but it’s an inborn instinct carried in our genes whether we like it or not.

This “celebration” of diversity in the American population was introduced in the 1960s and 70s as a deliberate divisive revolutionary tool wielded by Marxists like Bill Ayers and other radicals. It became dogma taught by Marxists in our universities, then spread by our leftist controlled news media and leftist controlled Hollywood. The intent was, and is, to split American culture along race and class lines and set off a “proletarian” revolution to destroy capitalism. The Left has now managed to elect a half-Black radical as President and their revolution is proceeding along very predictable lines, with him using every opportunity to stir up more division and discontent. A reading of the Constitution of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA at this link should make clear their goals and methods: http://revcom.us/Constitution/constitution.html

At the beginning of the 21st Century, the American people are about to learn the savage lesson of Communist Revolution that the Russian people learned at the beginning of the last century. Millions died in Russia’s Communist “experiment” before they learned that Communism just doesn’t work, as the concept of Communism (“You didn’t build that”) is completely alien to basic human nature. Now it’s our turn to learn what Russia after a century of death and misery now knows.

However, the coming American Communist Revolution that Karl Marx and his acolyte Barack Hussein Obama is bringing upon us won’t progress in the comparatively orderly fashion as it did with the Bolsheviks in Russia. The cursed diversity within the U.S. population will quickly turn this Communist Revolution into a no-holds-barred, and to-the-death, Race War. How our country with its Constitution intact could possibly survive such a blood-bath is a near impossibility. It once appeared as if our country might one day become a mixed race people of olive skinned, brown eyed, black haired, Spanish speaking Muslims, but Barack Hussein Obama has started a Communist Revolution that will undoubtedly destroy any possibility of that ever occurring.

There is no expiration date on any of our survival instincts, and white Liberal Democrats in their “Gun Free” zones will be the first among us to be reminded of this at the very beginning of our coming Communist Revolution turned Race War, as the American experiment in Democracy joins all previous Democracies in the dust-bin of history.

The Air Force is becoming the Homo branch of the US Military.
I hate to even let anyone know I served in the Air Force.

There is no way I’d serve in the military today. I don’t live in a country I want to defend. If this keeps up I can see a draft in the near future.
