TIPPING POINT? Navy SEALs ordered by Obama to remove ‘don’t tread on me’ Navy Jack from uniforms…

November 1, 2013

ORDERED TO REMOVE THE NAVY JACK?!   ACTIVE DUTY, VETS AND RETIRED MILITARY, WITHOUT A DOUBT HAVE TO SEE THE WRITING ON THE WALL. TO SOME THIS MAY NOT BE SIGNIFICANT BUT MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT, THIS IS A BIG DEAL! I BELIEVE THIS SIGNIFIES THE ADMINISTRATION’S ATTEMPT TO SHIFT OUR MILITARY AWAY FROM THEIR TRADITIONAL OATHS OF SERVICE. LET’S PUT THIS ACT INTO PERSPECTIVE…OTHER THAN A MISSION OR PROMOTION RELATED COMMAND TO REMOVE A PATCH FROM YOUR UNIFORM, WOULD YOU BE ALARMED? SOUND OFF! WHERE DO YOU STAND? WITH THE CONSTITUTION OR THE CRIMINAL AND CHIEF?

Divine Freedom

(by Carl Higbie, 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?

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.

My friends asked me what they should do about this order. I answer them by saying, “You took an oath to defend this country from enemies foreign and domestic. Will you put your career before country? Will you put your career before your sacred oath?” I cannot tell anyone how to respond. I can tell you though that an enemy — foreign or domestic — that tries to take the Navy Jack from my uniform could only do so by ripping the patriotic patch from the uniform of my cold, dead body.

We all have choices to make. The Obama administration and the yes-men top brass have decided to wage war on our Navy’s heritage. Will the SEALs choose to defend that heritage and defy them, with all the impertinence the flag’s slogan implies? Or will they be tread upon?

    When…WHEN WHEN IS THIS PIECE OF SHIT GOING TO BE REMOVED FROM OUR WHITE HOUSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Why do you hate America? We vote here.. Your side lost and will continue to lose. It is NOT your Whitehouse, You are a Terrorist.

      • There is no your side and our side. That is the divisive talk of tyranny. We are all first and foremost Patriots who have some political differences. Do you believe the Constitution and Bill of Rights is the law of the land? If not you are the traitor. You blindly follow a tyrant that has openly stated he hates this country and all it stands for. You don’t like our way of life and can’t assimilate then leave!

        Joe Barron: Why do YOU hate AMERICA? It is no longer the PEOPLE’S White house!!! The government is supposed to work for the PEOPLE; not the other way around. The PEOPLE have lost all control. The two sides were designed to work together to create balance. However, when one side forcefully overtakes the other and refuses to work together, the system fails and the PEOPLE lose. Not my side, not your side but EVERYONE!!!

    As a disabled Navy Veteran this angers me. So many things have been jepordized already, but to take away something that makes us proud when in Uniform, we stand tall and we wear our uniforms with Pride. The Presidents should have no say in our uniforms. Did he even sever in the military?

    Isn’t “don’t tread on me” ARMY? My husband was a Drill Sgt and its on the badge.

    • The Seals traditionally have worn these patches for many years. Obama forcing the removal of the Navy Jack is another piece of the puzzle that has come together. This shows us that he will continue to remove our heritage and shred our Constitution until there is nothing left of America.

    • It is a National flag designed to be a warning to any force that would dare attack us. Yes the Army uses them but not solely. The thought that any President would remove these is very very disturbing. Ovomit is out to demoralize our military and fires any commander that fights against his treasonous orders. This should fire up both the Senate and the House in both parties

  9. They don’t want a military that has there belief system of traditions and honor and defiance of the USA citizens and the constitution as there oath stands, they want people who follows orders even if those orders goes against traditions , honor, constitution , or US citizens rights. They want a soldier that will obey blindly. So they are striping Christianity and honor and traditions out of the military. This is all so they can control them to the point they have no opinion about right and wrong. What is so scary is this is the kind of stuff they saw in the past with other tyrannical leaders that use the military as there strong arm to get control and keep it, Any soldier that stand up to protest will be replaced. Our so called leaders have throw out the window , laws, constitution , traditions , beliefs of honor and codes of conduct. They are over stepping anything they see as getting in there way. This is very dangerous when some one is showing that kind of power.

    fact is he doesent care about the military-he wants to pick a fight with north korea or syria so he can deploy you all and have russians and chinese under the un come assist with martial law while your all out fighting another useless war,they expect people to fight back,thats why all the gun bans and soon new regulations on ammo.with a food shortage he can declare a state of emergency,thats when the un shows up-by law they can take your guns and any food stockpile.he already knows backs are broken already ,but hey lets add a tax when the middle class that are already struggeling to get by.he also wants us off the gold standard to break our economy,thats why we keep raising the debt ceiling so our moneys worthless,one day we will all wake up and take this country back….
