And it is easy to spot someone who doesn't know his/her own language and what hand gestures mean. In your world, you can claim any word or any symbol to mean anything. Just pretend the middle finger I just gave means "I love you."

Is there a link with different info showing MSNBC was the one called it out? People seem to be conflating facts. This was an interview on MSNBC. It was Twitter users that pointed this all out. I havent seen anything about MSNBC going after him for this or anything.

I'm going to need some corroborating evidence like a FB page loaded with WP crap.

Btw, NFL players are flashing the Black Power symbol but there is nary a peep about it in the MSM.

^^^^^This. You can obviously see that he purposely did it. He looks around then brings his hand up to pretend to scratch his face and then gives the hand signal. He is an idiot and rightfully got disciplined.

No but if you don't believe something that is right in front of your face, you probably are.

That's it in a nutshell.

The service’s response to the incident was swift, as the crew member in question was immediately reassigned and an official Coast Guard statement condemning the alleged offender was subsequently released.



The mainstream media is pure scum. 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.

Since when did the "OK" sign come to represent White Power?

For flashing "okay"? If nothing else, he should have been asked what was okay.
