SHAMEFUL: Here’s What Liberals Are Trying to Force Military Academies to Do Now…

There is a very interesting tale of two military academies… One has chosen to take a stand, issuing a decision based on PRINCIPLE. The other hasn’t and in the end has become a hypocrite. However, don’t take my word for it…decide for yourself.

From Allen West:

Last Saturday, we brought you the story of the West Point 16, black female cadets who, in uniform, took a picture with raised fists, symbolic of the black power salute. My recommendation was that a one-day immersion on why this wasn’t acceptable for a military officer with a public apology would suffice. I don’t know the disciplinary history of these young women.

If this were another in a list of infractions, then this should be seen in a different light, a more egregious one, and the consequences more drastic. However, if this were the occasion of one stupid thing — and many lieutenants do stupid things — this could be a “teachable moment.”

However, it appears West Point has taken a totally different outlook. As reported by Fox News, “Sixteen black West Point cadets who posed with raised fists for a pre-graduation picture that sparked debates on race and proper behavior in uniform won’t be punished for the gesture, the U.S. Military Academy said Tuesday.

The decision, less than two weeks before the 16 female seniors are poised to graduate, found they didn’t violate military rules limiting political activity.

West Point blew this one…but down south, the Military College of South Carolina, The Citadel, got it right.

Fox News reports, “The Citadel military college has decided a newly accepted Muslim student cannot wear her traditional Muslim headscarf if she enrolls.

The South Carolina school announced Tuesday that Commandant of Cadets US Navy CAPT Geno Paluso, Citadel graduate and Navy SEAL, decided that allowing the student to wear the head covering known as a hijab wouldn’t be consistent with the school’s policy of having cadets look similar.

The school in Charleston is known for its buttoned-up uniforms and close-cropped haircuts that represent the sacrifice of one’s self for the greater goals of the unit.

“Uniformity is the cornerstone of this four-year leader development model. The standardization of cadets in apparel, overall appearance, actions and privileges is essential to the learning goals and objectives of the college,” Citadel President retired Lt. Gen John Rosa said in a statement. The Citadel will continue to provide for any cadet’s spiritual needs when it can, such as providing special diets or time for prayer and driving cadets to their places of worship if they don’t have a car, Rosa said.
