Obama Orders Navy Seals To Remove ‘Don’t Tread On Me’ Navy Jack From Uniforms

USN

President Obama is unbelievably arrogant! He really should not piss off the U.S. Navy! He’s already alienated the Veterans & other branches during his “Shutdown” by ignoring the families of our fallen heroes by refusing to sign an Executive Order to release funds necessary to for them to immediate expenses related to the active duty deaths of their heroic loved-ones. His blatant disregard and feigned ignorance of the terrorist attack on our Embassy in Benghazi on the anniversary of 9/11 in 2012 where the American Ambassador & three other brave Americans  were murdered ~ is a slap in the face of every American Soldier and Sailor that ever served his or her country! Regardless, Obama’s thin-skinned, elitist approach is to eliminate ALL things that remind Americans of this country’s founding (including its Revolution) and is in my opinion, an attempt to take away anything & everything may boost American pride & purpose because he is obviously afraid of the possibility of starting another Revolution which may serve to remove him from office! I believe that all American Patriots should voice their opinions aloud, in writing or with flags & banners and rise up against the Tyrant Obama. Indeed, if the Military ever decides to engage in a coup to overthrow him, his czars & his radical followers from office, I’d be right there doing all I could do to help them! ~dfh

Excerpted from THE DAILY CALLER: The Navy Jack is the ‘don’t tread on me’ flag, one that has earned a revered place in America’s naval history and a beloved place in sailor’s hearts, through its use for over two centuries.

This symbol of America’s naval ferocity has spanned our country’s entire existence, flying from the masts of the Continental Navy during the war of independence, to today’s War on Terror. In fact, an amendment to the Navy code called SECNAV Instruction 10520.6 clearly states that as of 31 May 2002 all ships are to fly the flag throughout the duration of the War on Terror.

So why would ranking SEAL commanders ban the historical symbol? Is the proverbial top bass banning the flag? Is President Obama?

The Navy Jack is the ‘don’t tread on me’  flag, one that has earned a revered place in America’s naval history and a  beloved place in sailor’s hearts, through its use for over two centuries. This  symbol of America’s naval ferocity has spanned our country’s entire existence,  flying from the masts of the Continental Navy during the war of independence, to  today’s War on Terror. In fact, an amendment to the Navy code called SECNAV Instruction 10520.6 clearly  states that as of 31 May 2002 all ships are to fly the flag throughout the  duration of the War on Terror.

So why would ranking SEAL commanders ban the historical symbol? Is the  proverbial top bass banning the flag? Is President Obama?

Clearly the administration and sycophant “top brass” officers have degraded  America’s military prestige; from hand-tying rules of engagement, to uniform  regulations that make our military allegedly more compatible with foreign  forces, to the banning of an awe-inspiring flag that traces its roots to the  first U.S. Navy. We have a civilian-led military, but why should our ranking  commanders be complicit in the administration’s war on it? Why don’t they stand  up to Obama and his leftist cronies?

During my two deployments to Iraq, “Don’t  Tread on Me” was a phrase  seen on nearly every uniform and platoon space — including mine. From patches to  flags to large paintings on concrete barriers, our commanders themselves wore  the insignia on their sleeves — until now.

Perhaps this is why so many of my former teammates felt compelled to send me  the email below. They may not be able to expose the administration’s travesty,  but I can. The email, dated October 22, reads:

ALL:

WARCOM and GROUP TWO/ONE have pushed out the uniform policy for NWU III  and any patches worn on the sleeve.

All personnel are only authorized to wear the matching “AOR” American  Flag patch on the right shoulder.  You are no longer  authorized to wear the “Don’t Tread On Me” patch.

Again the only patch authorized for wear is the American flag on the  right shoulder. Please pass the word to all

Thanks

After reading the email, I first wondered, ‘why?’ (Actually, first I headed  to the gym to take out my frustration and anger on some unsuspecting weights  with the fury and intensity only a former Navy SEAL can exert.) Why would our  leaders sell out our heritage? Why would they rob present and future sailors of  our battle cry?

When a friend of mine asked his leadership the same question, he was told,  “The Jack is too closely associated with radical groups.” We must assume that  this thought policeman embedded in the SEAL community is speaking of the Tea  Party, whose flag (which also dates from the American Revolution) depicts a  snake with the same defiant slogan as The Navy Jack.

This begs yet another question: Who defines “radical group”? The last time I  checked, all military personnel are under oath to “support and  defend the constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” The Tea  Party stands for constitutional rights and founding principles of civil  liberties and limited government. Radical? Not unless you’re a leftist hell-bent  on destroying the foundations of our country. Or as the President has stated as  the objective of his presidency, “to fundamentally transform” America
