Teen with “southern pride” tattoo banned from military while LGBT marines welcomed with open arms.
While homosexuals and trannies run around in the military, an Arkansas teen told The New York Daily News that the marines turned him turned him down over a “southern pride” Confederate flag tattoo.
According to KARK, a local recruiter said “DQ, just automatically DQ” after seeing the body art on 18-year-old Anthony Bauswell of Greenbrier Arkansas.
“I felt pretty low,” Bauswell told a local news station. “My own government wasn’t going to let me serve my country because of the ink on my skin.”
The Daily News tried to contact the Marines Corps Recruiting Command but never received a response. The Corps’ tattoo policy reportedly states that body art deemed to be “sexist, racist, eccentric or offensive in nature” is not allowed.
Evidently, “southern pride” is “offensive in nature.” Surely, if the tattoo said “gay pride” or “going to hell and proud” Bauswell would’ve been lauded as a hero by the regressive left.
According to a recent CNN/ORC poll, 57% of Americans say the Confederate flag is simply a symbol of southern pride as opposed to a symbol of racism. Conversely, 72% of blacks believe the flag is racist.
While the Marine Corps have reportedly thought about changing their tattoo policy, it likely won’t impact Bauswell who is now unsure of what to do with his future.
“I kind of felt like I had a plan for my life, and now that I can’t go, I am not sure where I stand,” he told KARK.
Liberals ruin everything.
