Today Alex went to the DMV to renew his license. When he was told to go have his picture taken he noticed that there were some men having their picture taken, these men were wearing turbins on there heads. Alex was asked to take his hat off to have his picture taken. He said "no", and "no" again when asked the second time. When he was asked why he would not remove his hat he said, "those men didn't remove their head wear, I shouldn't either". It was explained that this was their attire and their religion. Alex told the DMV person that what he had on was his attire and when he entered the Marines he declared an oath to the USA, and one nation under God, so that his oath was under God so just as good as his religion. Well, the DMV people didn't know what to do, they spoke to supervisors and called Sacramento. Alex was told, after an hour, that he could wear his hat for the picture and if there were any problems they would let him know and he could appeal their decision. He told them if there was a problem he WILL appeal it. Alex feels no one has more right to display their head gear then a Veteran or active service person. When he left several employees at the DMV clapped quietly for him. He has spoken to few other Veterans and they plan to do the same.
Ya gotta LOVE this guy! More power to ya Alex!!!
Good job...Alex! Well said.
Screw the PC left ! Semper Fi Brother.
If the "rag heads" don't have to remove their cover no one should be told to remove their head gear. My next renewal will be the same answer "NO'', for the same reason - I took an oath and I stand by it, it is part of my religion, for God and Country"!
I love it Semper Fi
Thank you Alex.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH !!!
-This is what needs to be done if we want to keep our culture and traditions. Why should Americans have to abide by laws that immigrants need not to obey. Time to start speaking out very loudly.
It's about damn time.
Now I'd like to see some pushback at the airports.
Way to go Marine, thank you for standing up to this bunch of infiltrating cock roaches that are trying to take over our country. We must stand up and take this kind of opportunity where ever it might arise. OOH RAH
