America’s God: The Almighty Military

This is just a quick post. I’ve taken time from my busy morning to post this because I think that it is VERY important. A woman posted a status on Facebook that criticized the military, and said she didn’t like how military members were always trying to get discounts. For this she has received death threats and online harassment, and she was fired for her comments. Military worshipping Americans erupted in joy at the thought of this poor woman losing her livelihood because she said things they didn’t like. This is the real face of American fascist militarism. There is one particular Facebook page that has harassed her and the comments are filled with hate for this woman who never did them any wrong other than speak her mind about the ridiculous nature of military worship in the US. The name of the Facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/ShitmyLPOsays?ref=ts&fref=ts
So how about giving them a taste of their own medicine? Attack the page, fill the comments section of their hateful posts up and support this woman who didn’t deserve to lose her job for speaking her mind. Down with American military worship!! Down with fascist militarism!! Down with the US military!! Down with this suppression of free speech!!

EDIT:
Here’s the news story:

Here are some comments from that shitty FB page so you can see the steaming pile of hate for yourself:

  • Shawn Carlson That’s funny because in my experiences it is not the service members who are really that critical of statements like hers, it’s our spouses, parented, kids, etc. Try telling a wife/husband their deployed spouse isn’t a hero, you’re likely to catch an ass whooping!

  • Byron Montgomery I hate when people negatively talk about the Navy or any other military branch. If you have not served, your opinion is solely based off of what you have heard. You don’t know what we’ve been through and what we’ve sacrificed. The fact that you are allowed to have an opinion is because of the military who defends America’s freedoms. Don’t bite the hand that feeds you! And if you really think you know something and disagree with how things are being ran, go through the appropriate channels to change it. Become a member of congress. Otherwise shut your pie hole!

  • John Roell Look stop thinking of fb as yours. Its not fb owns it there for its a public place. She made comments that tied her work to them in public that is counter to their stance. So no she has no right to complain she lost her job

  • Ryan Ditto She antagonized this situation. Next time she exercises her freedom of speech she should thank the Sailor, Marine, Airman, and Soldier that gave her that right. I could care less what the welfare baby thinks I do or don’t deserve. Opinions are like assholes.

  • Daniel Gilbert She told those in the military to “get a real job”, she WAS a server at a pub and WAS employed at a movie theater, now she IS unemployed. Maybe she should worry more about herself and her family instead of criticizing those that fight for her right to be stupid

  • Brandon Douglas Fuck that bitch. I haven’t spent the last 8 years in here for people like her to slander us. Damn right i ask for military discounts, because i’ve earned the right. Just like all of us on here have. It’s called “perks of the job”, i put up with enough bullshit. If someone wants to buy me a drink because i did a 10 1/2 month deployment on the damn boat, i’ll take that drink and say thanks. It’s called respect and she clearly doesn’t have any.

  • Rose Marie Bogaard And yet many of you are missing the fact that as an employee, you represent the company you work for. The company obviously didn’t agree with how she was representing them, so they discharged her. That’s their right. Why should they continue to pay someone who is damaging business and giving them a bad image?

  • John Roell So this is how I see what happened. She went to her Facebook page and spouted some controversial words. Or let me rephrase it she ran into a packed stadium grabbed the mic and over the 1mc said something controversial and expected no response. Or she expected the masses to agree with her and is now surprised they did not agree. Most places can firmer you if you say things to discrete or bring shame to the company in public. By posting on a public forum (yes your Facebook is not private forum) she brought up her work.(by mentioning a discount her post is associated to her work) they have a right to protect their image by firing her. Now while everyone has a right to free speech you speech is not with out responsibility. Your rights have limits and your rights come with ownership of your choices to exercise them. While death threats and such are a bit over the top. The verbal disagreements posted are others exercising free speech in response to her entrance into public forum. While I feel she should have the right to state her opinion she also has the responsibility to take ownership of the consequences for her words. As long as she isn’t receiving or actually having bodily harm to her happens. I have no sympathy for her, you reap what you sow she is not special.

  • Shane O’Neil Freedom of speech, I am happy she had the balls to voice her opinion. As a veteran, I think she is a moron BUT I am happy to see her using her freedom that VETERANS provided. As far as her job, they had every right to fire her. The comments she made could lose business for the company. Sometimes, you have to think before you speak. She obviously forgot that lesson.

  • Thomas Cunningham You know even though many of us disagree like myself with her opinion we did join to protect and defend the constitution and that includes the 1st admendment and freedom of speech whether we agree or disagree. And thats what make this a great country. As far as anyone threatening this womans life and they are active or prior active service that should never be occuring because that is below our standards.

    It was a bit too much though, I mean come on, as a military vet I didn’t like what she posted but wouldn’t go as far as to threaten her life. It’s just plain ignorance for anyone to take it to an extreme just because people disagree on what someone else has to say. What the hell is this country coming to?!!!

  • Joe Litz This is absurd, she should not have lost her job over this. Do I disagree? Yeah, sure I do. But this is just as asinine as firing someone because they said they don’t like Obama, or the government, or god damn basketball. Seriously, this is some 1st grader baby bullshit. Just because some civ talked shit about what we do doesn’t make it ok for her to get fired over it.

  • Brandon Havard What she said was jacked up, but I do think she should legally have the right to say whatever she wants without financial or legal repercussions. It’s ‘Murica after all. Although that comment would warrant a punch to the face in person, I think she was speaking on behalf of the ignorant tard that she is and not on behalf of the company she works for. Ignorant tards need menial jobs with other ignorant tards to keep them from hurting normal people when they go crazy. If anything, I would take pleasure in making her mop up my spilled Mr Pibb purchased with my military discount while calling me ‘sir’ with a forced smile on her face. /2cents
