Are white supremacists doing it? If so, it belongs to them now so then yes, itd be a white supremacist hand sign.

I use it at the lake, hiking, sport's field and so on. Not going to stop because some people turned it into something it isn't.

Isn't it a shame the leftists who are obviously easily influenced and hence mind controlled by the likes of MSNBC have ruined the career of an innocent member of the US Coast Guard? A person who is sworn to put his life on the line to protect these very people.

It's a shameful thing to see what they are doing to the United States.


Why anyone watches or listens to cable news is beyond me.

So "trolling the libs" is an acceptable activity during the time you're supposed to be helping with a hurricane? Sigh.

How is his career ruined? He's still in the Coast Guard...it says he was reassigned, not discharged. It doesn't say his name. If he got a reprimand, it's warranted as his actions before and during belie that it was innocent scratching or the like. *Shrug*

I did watch the video. He looks around to see if people are watching or something, then he really does the OK sign. It's there. It could be an actual OK, but still wouldn't make sense when the report was about a dead baby. It's not just scratching his face. He sorta pretended to for a second, but then forms his hand into the OK sign.
Yes. And if he wanted to show the A-OK sign, he would have held his hand up in the air like folks do with the peace sign.

Obviously you know nothing of how something like this hurts someone's career in the military. Or rather, pretend like you don't know. Sorry this isn't argument to what I said.


It's a damn shame that he has to go through this, and even worse, people such as yourself come on here and attempt to defend MSNBC with any argument.

Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. I don't care what he flashed, it's unprofessional, and he's likely getting the reprimand for being Mr. Photobomb instead of the content of what he did.

This thread is just bizarre. The Left is so juvenile and so so easily manipulated and brainwashed. I feel sorry for those people. I really do, they aren't wired correctly and need medical help.

Im sorry, I don't see this guy flashing a white power sign. I see someone scratching their face. Now this guy has lost his position to a pitchfork mob. Another sacrifice for the SJW online gods.

Did you read the article you linked to? Could you point out where it stated that MSNBC "accused" anyone of anything????

You must have meant the Twitter crowd accused him. Right? Because you would not intentionally mislead people due to a personal bias?

Some of you accuse the media of fake news so much that you don't realize you are producing fake news yourself.
