Why would you be so ignorant. If you are just seeking money damages fuck your organization. Yes its similar but its not the same thing and does not mean the same and to make a big crybaby stink about it shows that you dont care about the races coming together you prosper when there is hate. Religious freedom foundation is a lousy name too attack a member of the armed forces that served his tine and continues to serve is ludicrous. Your organization will end up in the limelight for your clearly and intentionally misleading name. In short fuck your organization

For your information, the Nazi “Schutzstaffel” or “SS” double lighting bolt was the official insignia of the most violent terrorist agency of psychopath Hitler & his evil Third Reich. These Nazi henchmen enforced heinous Aryan white supremacy, ran the human extermination camps & were responsible for the gruesome genocide of at least 6 million innocent children, women & men solely because they were born of Jewish mothers (like Jesus).
Today, it is one of the rallying signs for neo-Nazis whose stated goal is to kill all American Jews. It remains abhorrent, anti-Semitic, anti-American & symbolic of horrible hatred & hideous holocaust. These are just some of the reasons it was denounced & banned by the US Marine Corps. It has no place in an American police force whose purpose is public protection not promoting Nazi supremacy & provoking fear. No patriotic American should be surprised this sordid Nazi symbol offends & frightens families residing in Walla Walla, Washington.
You are an example of why some foul-mouthed fools are too ignorant & uninformed to use the public internet rationally & responsibly. Your moronic message only reflects on yourself & reveals a malevolent malcontent incapable of civil communication.

Hey im not discounted the bull shit that these monsters did in the past and would love to do today what im irritated with is that its not what was meant when he got the tattoo. So suing everyone is ridiculous your funds could be better served enlisting assassination on the arian and kkk leadership. This looks to divide further not unite. Im for equal rights freedom and treatment for all regardless. I truly believe God made us all even the arian shit heads. Consider dropping the lawsuit and help the ofgicer pay for the alterations unite that community

Let me repeat – “No patriotic American should be surprised this sordid Nazi symbol offends & frightens families residing in Walla Walla, Washington.” That is why they complained, protested & sought the assistance of the non-profit constitutional rights organization that got it previously denounced & banned by the US Marine Corps & has been officially nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize 7 times for its pro-bono advocacy on behalf of aggrieved Americans like those in Walla Walla.

Dear (name withheld)
Thanks so much for your grammatically challenged run on rant and your creative spelling.  It gave me quite the chuckle at a time when a little levity is appreciated.  I served time in the military (only 41 years), but never served “tine.”  I suppose that if I was in food service passing out forks, then I would’ve had that experience.  Sounds challenging!
By the way, may I suggest several ways to improve your writing so that it generates more thoughts and fewer laughs?  First, fine the apostrophe key.  That will help you with contractions like “don’t.”  Commas are helpful, too.  Those are like lower apostrophes that tell you to pause for a second.  I often work with my grandsons to help them write better.  I think you can write better, too.  Someday.
Now, to your content…  Why are we making a “big stink” about a Nazi symbol on a local policeman?  First, we weren’t the first to make the stink–several local residents raised the issue first.  They came to us because they know that we care about issues of bigotry against religious groups in general–though we specialize in defending those within the military that are the victims of religious bias.  While we appreciate the police officer’s honorable service in the military, we also think (and and many agree with us) that that symbol is a message of hate and anti-Semitism that is inconsistent with the sence of service to a full community that a police officer’s position demands.  In the end, even the police officer agrees, because there’s now been a full discussion of the situation.  He’s agreed to have the tattoo changed.  That’s a good thing.
As for our name, the Military Religious Freedom Foundation is, I think, appropriate.  I say that because the MRFF celebrates the rights of all military members to worship or not worship as they (personally) see fit.  That’s freedom.  It’s not only freedom to worship, but that also means that there is freedom from coercion to worship in a manner defined by those with higher rank.  For example, if you were in the military and were a Christian, but your boss was a Muslim, we would defend your freedom to worship during your off-duty time, outside of the office and work hard to make sure that your Muslim boss didn’t force you to practice her/his religion or treat you unfairly because you’re not Muslim.  Does that make sense?  I hope so.
Now, I know that I’ve written a lot of words here and used lots of funny little marks like ‘ and , and ( and ), but I have confidence that you can get through this and understand.
Have a wonderfully free day, my friend!

    In response to Martin, a professional soldier, a Brigadier General and MRFF advisory board member,
    Sir, yesterday was the first time I had ever heard of this organization. I am a true constitutionalist. I believe that is the backbone of America.
    However, your degrading response to what to me was a pretty common sense and heartfelt comment would keep me from ever donating to you. I could feel the toxicity and self importance oozing from your words.
    The commenter was correct. You could offer to help pay for the officer to change the tattoo. You could offer compassion and understanding instead of litigation. You could bring together instead of divide.
    However, the attitude you brought to the conversation is unfortunately what many on both sides bring.
    When someone of your rank and position does it, it reinforces what us “morons” that have spent our TINE in the trenches think of “gentlemen “ such as yourself. It reinforces the preconceived notion that you “gentlemen” are out of touch and only do anything to glorify yourself. Think “Catch-22.”
    You could apologize the person you put down with a heartfelt apology and maybe advise this organization that you can accomplish what you want without litigation that would UNIFY both sides.
    From reading your reply I believe that you will either lash out at this comment if it is allowed to be posted or you will ignore it because you are too full of yourself, your position and your titles.
    You could take the poster’s comment to heart about true freedom and drop a frivolous lawsuit that is being, in my opinion, used solely as a weapon and a way to get this organization’s name out there and try a tack that is filled with love and compassion that no lawsuit can or will ever show.
    The lawsuit did work on getting the organization’s name out to people who have never heard of them. And, there is that old saw about the only bad publicity is no publicity. Well, the days of that are over. If you can’t tell, all of that has changed.
    I challenge you to step off your high horse, humble yourself before your Diety of choice and ask yourself “Is this how I would like to be treated?” and “ How can we show the American Community that we want to unify and have standards and ethics ourselves?”
    By allowing your comment to be posted I have been shown that this is not where I think I want my donation dollars will ever go.
    I ask you and challenge you to be a positive part of the solution.
    The government attacked the bonus army that was protesting for what they had been promised for their service. They burnt their shelters and murdered men. It was a solution. However, wouldn’t you agree it was not a positive solution.
    I urge you to look to your chosen Grand Architect of the Universe for guidance and I urge this organization to ask you to change or leave and “help” someone else. This is just good advice from one Brother to another.
    Ultimately you have the freedom to treat people who offer their opinion that is different from yours like trash if you want. You can look down upon them for misspelling words to distract from their message and not truly address what they had to say. But, Martin, you detract from YOUR message and you paint yourself as an unprofessional, narcissistic, uncaring and irrational being that no one who would wish to be a positive force of positive change in the world would ever want to associate with.
    My Holy book says that a gentle answer turneth away wrath. I would say that this message is almost universal and you should pay heed if you want to advance the cause of this organization. From past experience in dealing with people who have overblown self images and narcissistic behaviors, I doubt you will listen to any good advice. Nor do I think this will be allowed to be posted. My guess is you will skim this if it is allowed to be posted, attack anything that will make you feel better. Heck, you might even try to be civil, but you will probably be passive aggressive. How you have painted yourself in that comment shows me that you will not be able to hold back.
    To this organization, I beg that you seek ways to unify and not divide. Be a positive part of a good solution and not be a part of just any solution. I also think that if Martin is going to be an adviser to your organization, I would have him advise you on grammar and not on public relations. I hope they you guys can find a way to leaders of positive change! May your G.A.O.T. give you blessings. Or not. However you choose to believe in whomever/whatever you may choose to believe or not believe in.

    France is a perfect example of why a lot of generals in our military are leftist hacks like Gen. “Milktoast Milley.” I hope Pres. Trump will force these kind of generals to resign their commissions and get out our our military. We need more generals like Michael Flynn, Patton, Omar, Eisenhower and MacArthur.

    I realize that no further information-gathering or self-improvement or open-mindedness will come of the trumpeting arrogant screes hurled at MRFF because of a phenomenon called “confirmation bias.” That’s a sad thing…. “Confirmation bias” describes itself and its outcomes this way: When certain rarefied information is gained, the gathering stops. In other words, “I know all I need to know, and you’re just making me mad by attempting to further the conversation. So shut up!” Not that all viewpoints have been considered, not that there are great gaps in the information, not that due consideration has been given to all information. Nevertheless, the conversation is over because you have outstripped my ability to BS, fume, yell, insult, chastise, use offensive buzzwords, curse, yell–you name it. Too bad adult humans resort to rolling in their own mud to try to convince another of their purity.
