Military Probing Army Reserve Corporal Who Campaigned For Ron Paul In Uniform In Iowa

http://biggovernment.com/jsshapiro/2012/01/04/exclusive-military-investigating-army-reserve-corporal-who-campaigned-for-ron-paul-in-uniform/

by Jeffrey Scott Shapiro


Big Government has learned that Corporal Jesse Thorsen, 28, who promoted presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) while in uniform during yesterday’s Iowa caucuses, is being probed by his Army Reserve unit for violation of Department of Defense Regulations.

Members of the U.S. armed forces are prohibited by Department of Defense Directive 1344.10 from campaigning or participating in public political activities while in uniform. The purpose of the directive is to preserve the political independence of the military.

What an idiot.

An idiot with a vote. And an idiot with a future, unlike many who will come home and be unemployed.

Newest specialist in the US Army Reserves, bet those stripes come off quick.

Dumb move on his part.

How many of the gays protesting in uniform got in trouble?

Dumb. Pretty clear on this in the regs.

Fucking idiot.

For you Army boys out there, just how in the fuck can you be in for ten years and be an E4?

One more moron that will be standing tall in front of the man on Monday morning.

Well, if this is any indication, he isn't great at making decisions.

How many of those OWS fucksticks were investigated (assuming any of them had gotten further into the military than an Army surplus store)?

Yep, this is blatantly against regs. My problem is this rule seems to flouted at will if it's for the "correct" political cause.

Some units have very little or no turnover, so you're stuck at that grade until the CSM dies, one of the First Sergeants gets promoted, so a Platoon Sergeant moves up, and so on.

The ones I remember getting airtime were already out of the military based on thier inability to "don't tell".

I get that, but I wouldn't think you could reenlist for that long like that. I had to be an E5 to reenlist, and that was with 5 years in.

I was under the impression that it takes FOREVER to promote beyond SPC in the NG/ Reserves.

Idiots rarely have decent futures. His future in the military will probably be brief. Then he can join all the other idiots.

Yes it's not uncommon to see 40-50 year old Specialist in National Guard or Reserve units.

He most likely received multiple NJPs.

Given that, though, I've often wondered why soldiers can serve in Congress.

It's made quite clear to us that we don't do that shit. I'm sure he knows that. He deserves whatever the military does with him.

If you want to say, "I'm in the military and I support ______," that's fine. But NOT IN ANY OFFICIAL UNIFORM, even a PT uniform.

Of course not. However, were he to do the exact same thing in support of some other candidate, you would be screaming for his head.

He's a Reservist. That makes all the difference.

RCP for E4 on AD is eight years.

They are probing this but not FUBAR Shamar. Former Marine SGT. Shamar Thomas stood around at Occupy Wall St. screaming at Cops while wearing his Marine Uniform. He also went on Speaking tours most days wearing a Marine Uniform and toting a fake resume and the DOD did Shit all. So tell me how this isnt a double standard against Conservatives. Yes I know he was a former Marine but the shit he spit was rediculous.

Reservists and Guardsmen can as long as they don't campaign in uniform.

Why shouldn't they?


Never said they shouldn't. I said I've often wondered why they can, given the fact that what they can say or do politically in uniformed is limited.

Because Thomas was not active duty nor a reservist. He was acting as a civilian and was not subject to the DOD directive.

Not sure DOD could have done anything to him.

That's the key difference.

The "in uniform" is what the DOD directive is all about.

It doesn't restrict them from doing political campaigning, etc while not in uniform.
