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

BREAKING:   Hillary Clinton Donor Ed Buck Arrested After Another Male Overdoses In His Seedy LA Apartment

Democrat donor and Hillary friend Ed Buck was finally arrested Tuesday night after a third man overdosed in his apartment.

The man who overdosed in Ed Buck’s Los Angeles apartment last week survived, however the other two victims previously died.

Ed Buck will be in court Wednesday.

Ed Buck loves to inject young black gay escorts with methamphetamine — the mother of one of Ed Buck’s victims described it as a fetish.

He was finally arrested after two black gay escorts died in his apartment from overdoses.

KTLA 5 reported:

The prominent Democratic donor and LGBTQ political activist Ed Buck was arrested Tuesday and charged with operating a drug house and providing methamphetamine to a 37-year-old man who overdosed last week, officials said.

Buck was charged with three counts of battery causing serious injury, administering methamphetamine and maintaining a drug house, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office. Buck is accused of injecting the victim, who survived, with methamphetamine on Sept. 11.

of another young black gay escort was found at the West Hollywood home of Ed Buck, a top Democrat donor and political activist.

As previously reported, a black gay escort named Gemmel Moore died of a meth overdose at Ed Buck’s West Hollywood home in July of 2017.

The LA County District Attorney’s Office previously declined to prosecute Ed Buck saying the evidence was “insufficient to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that (Buck) is responsible for the death of Gemmel Moore,” which sparked an outrage from family members and others in the community.

Jasmyne Cannick told FOX and Friends nearly a dozen black men have come forward to speak on their experiences with “serial predator” Ed Buck.
Cannick also went off on the Democrat Party: “Over 77% of black people in California vote Democratic. We vote for Democrats.

It is a shame that when something like this happens, when you have the chair of your state party when at the time of this , Eric Bauman, who was willing to turn a blind eye as well as instruct others not to speak on it. As a black woman, as a black Democrat, I expect more from my party.

Last week, a black male was seen entering Ed Buck’s seedy LA apartment.
