Navy SEALs ordered to remove ‘don’t tread on me’ Navy Jack from uniforms

The article below does not tell the full story.  The U.S.N.  Jack has been a blue flag with stars on it for most of the past.  The ‘don’t tread on me’ flag was revived only in 2002, under the Bush administration.  Men who fought under the 2002+ flag would however  most likely be attached to it and regret its going

The Navy Jack is the ‘don’t tread on me’ flag, one that has earned a revered place in America’s naval history and a beloved place in sailor’s hearts, through its use for over two centuries. This symbol of America’s naval ferocity has spanned our country’s entire existence, flying from the masts of the Continental Navy during the war of independence, to today’s War on Terror. In fact, an amendment to the Navy code called SECNAV Instruction 10520.6 clearly states that as of 31 May 2002 all ships are to fly the flag throughout the duration of the War on Terror.

So why would ranking SEAL commanders ban the historical symbol? Is the proverbial top bass banning the flag? Is President Obama?

Clearly the administration and sycophant “top brass” officers have degraded America’s military prestige; from hand-tying rules of engagement, to uniform regulations that make our military allegedly more compatible with foreign forces, to the banning of an awe-inspiring flag that traces its roots to the first U.S. Navy. We have a civilian-led military, but why should our ranking commanders be complicit in the administration’s war on it? Why don’t they stand up to Obama and his leftist cronies?

For the last five years, The Marxist-in-Chief and his administration have been doing all they can to demoralize and humiliate America's military. Handcuffing our warriors with idiotic and irrational "rules of engagement" was just the beginning. Today, like it was in Viet Nam, our troops are sent to fight and die, but not win. They're told to fight, but not hurt anyone.

Then, the Marxist Muslim in the WH filled the ranks with females and queers, and (encouraged) open homosexuality.

Why any young, decent, and patriotic American would even consider putting on the uniform is beyond me. Why would anyone want to fight a die for a nation that takes (far better) care of it's welfare and illegal immigrant parasites than it does it's combat vets.

The purpose of our military is do defend our nation period. Not to provide jobs for this group or that group. The military is not the place for social experiments.

The tea baggers hijacked "Don't tread on me" just like the homosexuals hijacked the word "gay"

"Why should our ranking commanders..."
Are you seriously suggesting that commissioned officers of the USN should disobey directives from their civilian leaders?
Is that really the path you want to go down?

12:46 - and numerous unkind people RE-hijacked the word 'gay' to mean anything vaguely silly and dumb; much like many terms today it becomes too loose and meaningless, eg. "racist", "fascist", "leftist", etc., etc.
