A soldier who hid in her car to avoid saluting the flag — and then flaunted it on Instagram — is the latest service member to come under attack via social media and be accused of dishonoring her service.

Pfc. Tariqka Sheffey, whose Instagram handle is “sheffeynation,” posted a selfie with a caption that reads:

“This is me laying back in my car hiding so I don’t have to salute the 1700 flag, KEEP ALL YOUR ‘THATS SO DISRESPECTFUL/HOWRUDE/ETC.’ COMMENTS TO YOURSELF cuz, right now, IDGAFFFF.”

The image was distributed via Facebook and also sent to Army Times. Angry service members, Gold Star mothers and spouses have called for the soldier’s removal from service.

“Any soldier who refuses to salute the flag is in the military for the wrong reason, and should be removed by dishonorable discharge with loss of all benefits,” one Facebook commenter said. “If they won’t salute it, they damn sure won’t fight for it.”

As far as I am conerned she is a treasonous B_TCH! Her butt needs to be hauled in and courtmartialed for that!

SHE IS NOT 'TREASONOUS' JUST DUCKING HER PATRIOTIC DUTY.

WHICH SO MANY DO.

I STOOD PROUDLY AND HELD MY SALUTE! WHICH IS WHAT MOST DID.

IN TODAY'S MILITARY, SHE'S BLACK, NOTHING YOU CAN DO.

OLD SARGE,'NAM VET,'68,'70

Franklin... Sadly, you are probably right about her Color keeping her out of trouble. And here I thought that racism was a thing of the past. Someone forgot to forward the memo about Racism going both ways no matter what your Color.

The best way to make sure people don't discriminate, is to make sure people don't discriminate! NO MATTER THE COLOR... YES EVEN THE 'WHITE' COLOR.

OAS... For God and Country!

She should be dishonorably discharged from the military and she should be ashamed of herself and i'm so sick of hearing these racist black people bitch and complain about racism. (somehow this will be turned around and SOMEHOW it will be the white mans fault)  THEY are the racists these days!!!  if they want it to stop they should look in thier own mirrors!!!!1

AMEN

If her commander does not do something? I think the people that have to serve with her will. Boy, bet her parents are proud. Or may be they are just like her. Bet she does use color to get by with this! just looking at her face makes me want to do two things. &#AT her black ass. or throw up! As Always. " I live my life. That when my feet hit the floor in the morning. The devil and muslims say, " OH CRAP!!! HE IS AWAKE!!!"

When something upsets you, your response is to "beat" someone or "throw up? Really? Must be horrible to know you worry Satan and that all Muslims know your name.  You are really a bad and dangerous man.  Are they all in your room at the same time when you arise and put on your cape? If you yourself never served a full tour in the military, then please sit down and be quiet.  If you have, please tell me how you did so without doing something really stupid because you were young and dumb.

Well, if you will look at the look on her face? That will tell you a lot! And i do love my country more then most. but when you have a friend bleed out in your arms. things like this really do piss a person off. And by the way USMC-1968-1971. Did two plus 7. And would do it again. have a good day.

Thank you Ted!!   and Emu, you should be ashamed!

Ashamed of what Christine?  Sticking up for a young soldier? My God has not any other person out here done something stupid? How many of us have forgotten to take our ball-caps off when hearing the National Anthem? Who stands when watching TV when the National Anthem is sung? These are slights to our country's flag equal to a young private not getting out of her car to render a salute during retreat. Lighten up!

That is what's wrong with our country now, people do not have to face the consequences of their actions. No personal responsibility and people never learn to make better choices. She failed not only herself but the code of conduct that she apparently has no knowledge of. Has the military changed purposely to allow this kind of behavior?

Well what about her flaunting her stupidity ( that is a polite description)
.... And following up with more abuse....
Just another pig putting on lipstick!

ALERT ALERT

Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. https://twitter.com/barackobama/status/1229432034650722304 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
