When I saw this story concerning West Point graduates:
Sixteen black West Point cadets who posed with raised fists for a pre-graduation picture won’t be punished for the gesture.
The U.S. Military Academy said Tuesday it concluded the group photo didn’t violate any Department of Defense rules limiting political activity. West Point says in a statement an internal inquiry found the picture of the 16 female cadets captured a spur-of-the-moment gesture intended to demonstrate unity and pride.
The decision comes with the seniors poised to graduate May 21.
It brought to mind a single question:
If these West Point Graduates were posing with Bibles, Rosaries and Crucifixes would they decide it was not “political activity”?
If people want to argue that such political activity is NBD that’s fine, that’s fair debate, but don’t insult my intelligence and claim it’s not.
This is why this administration of the big lie has been poison, because when your leaders sell you the big lie on a regular basis, those lower down the food chain will follow suit.
