O.K., Swastika-Bashers, Here's One For You: U.S. Marines Reject Recruit Because Of A Confederate Battle Flag Tattoo On His Shoulder

National socialists are frequently denigrated within the White Nationalist community for their use of the swastika. Critics claim the swastika "drives the lemmings away", so it should be permanently shelved. The presumption is that other less prominent and less controversial symbols of White pride can be saved.

Sorry, but it ain't working that way. When Hymie and his homies throttled the swastika, they didn't stop there. They went after the Confederate battle flag. First, the NAACP launched a largely unsuccessful boycott of South Carolina over their display of the Confederate battle flag at their state capitol.

But now the campaign against the Confederate battle flag has been ramped up another notch. WorldNetDaily reports that the U.S. Marine Corps have rejected a recruit because of a tattoo. Not a white power tattoo or a gang tattoo -- but a Confederate battle flag tattoo on his shoulder. As a result, the young man, who wishes to remain unnamed and declined to be interviewed, has chosen to return to school and is no longer an aspiring Marine.

"I think he just wants to let it go," said former Marine 1st Lt. Gene Andrews, a friend of the man and patriotic Southerner who served in Vietnam from 1968 through 1971. Andrews is a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, a group of male descendants of Confederate soldiers. He counseled the young man when he decided to become a Marine. "He had been talking to me, and he was all fired up about joining," he told WND. "He asked my opinion of it, and I just tried to tell him the truth, good points and bad points."

WND contacted the Tennessee USMC recruiting station which rejected the recruit, and a Marine sergeant explained, "The policy is if a tattoo can be construed by anyone as being gang-related or racially biased, then we can't accept them." Asked whether an exception might be made for a Marine recruit who could provide a full explanation on the meaning of his tattoo as an expression of Southern pride, the recruiter explained, "At this point in time, no. If it can be construed by anyone as being racially biased, then right now it's a flat-out denial." Although he acknowledged that the tattoo is quite popular in the South and that recruitment has been impacted by the ban on Confederate flag tattoos, he further explained that the policy has been set by Headquarters Marine Corps. Headquarters USMC has not responded to WND's requests for clarification of the policy.

Two USMC directive references were cited in this story. Current Marine Corps tattoo policy states, "Tattoos/brands that are sexist (express nudity), racist, eccentric or offensive in nature, express an association with conduct or substances prohibited by the Marine Corps drug policy and the Uniform Code of Military Justice, to include tattoos associated with illegal drugs, drug usage or paraphernalia, are prohibited. Tattoos/brands that depict vulgar or anti-American content, bring possible discredit to the Marine Corps, or associate the applicant/Marine with any extremist group or organization are prohibited."

The second cited reference, the U.S. Marine Corps "Guidebook for Tattoo Screening, Volume VII," which is a manual outlining procedures for enlisted recruiting and officer procurement operations, explains, "Users of this guidebook should keep in mind, however, that few symbols ever just represent one idea or are used exclusively by one group. For example, the confederate flag is a symbol that is frequently used by white supremacists but which also has been used by people and groups that are not racist. To some it may signify pride in one's heritage, but to others it suggests slavery or white supremacy."

This is definitely NOT your father's Marine Corps any more. This story has also become a subject for discussion on Stormfront.

Analysis: Many in the White Nationalist community decided to sacrifice the swastika in the hopes that such a move would appease our enemies and make other Whites more receptive to our message. The strategy worked - but only in part. Our enemies were NOT appeased - they decided to go after the Confederate battle flag. And now that they've signed the Marine Corps up to their anti-Confederate crusade, they've made a major stride.

Bear in mind that our enemies use Communist negotiating tactics. What's theirs is theirs, and what's ours is always negotiable. So will we sacrifice the Confederate battle flag next? What else do we sacrifice? Do we then declare white Jews to be White without any preconditions? Do we go as far as the British National Party and start considering visible half-breeds to be white? When do we stop? Why not just go all the way and become full-blown conservatards?

The National Socialist Movement and the American Nazi Party have made all the compromises they can make and still retain a national socialist identity. Both have given up the traditional SA uniform, which was a good idea. Both have de-emphasized Adolf Hitler; the ANP actually emphasizes George Lincoln Rockwell. If we ask them to bend over so far as to give up the swastika, we're asking them to break.

Those who don't agree with the swastika can pursue their own activism in their own way, and leave the national socialists to their own activism. If you don't like the swastika, stay away from national socialist events. As for national socialists, I do recommend that when they attend Tea Party events and other such functions, leave the swastikas at home. Bringing them to such events will merely undermine NS activism. It's not supposed to be "boots vs. suits"; it's supposed to be boots AND suits, as J.T. Ready recently pointed out. Boots and suits can work together or separately, depending upon the objective and occasion, but they never should be working against one another.

We better protect what we have by taking back that which we've lost.

He also can't get valuable tactical knowledge and self-defense skills that might save him - and his family and friends - when TSHTF.

"When TSHTF"? It will never hit the fan. People have been saying that for the last 40 years or so. If you mean; when blacks are going to pick up arms and attack white people en masse, don't look for it to happen in your lifetime. Instead, white's are being dispossed gradually, marginalized and made economically and socially impotent. Why attack you when they can simply reduce you to poverty and starve you to death? Look around you: are your friends and relatives working? Do they have jobs? If so, for how long? If you are young and want to work, the military is becoming the only employer (no skill, no profession- the military is your only hope). Checkmate.

"WTSHTF" what a JOKE! Its been hitting the fan for decades, and the 'best' our side cab 'do' - is nsm style 'protests'. Insurgents around the globe simply pick up a weapon and get to work...

Why hasn't White Reference covered the May 1st American Nazi Party National Conference? Surely, this is as 'newsworthy' as an ANP activist putting out message cards in New England, which you covered a while back... Being an ANP Official Supporter, I realize I'm partial, but our National meeting was as important to the struggle as NSM's, if not more so, as we are moving into Phase Two, while NSM is forever stuck in street theater. Hail Rockwell!

What is the U.S. military doing other than fighting wars for Israel. Why should anyone die for that?

Anchorage Activist you've done a great service with your analysis.

Anyone who has marched or fought under the Sacred Banner of our race knows how it not only drives our enemies crazy but, more importantly, it magically transforms those, who wear it or wave it, into fighting men.

Those who denigrate the NS troops say how bad it is, well suit and tie outfits like NA and others, how big did they grow? How many of their people marched in black neighborhoods facing violent mobs?

I liked Dr Pierce, his scripts for the DV broadcasts are actually better than his delivery was on radio. They read brilliantly.
Yet he was no George Lincoln Rockwell.
The enemy has saturated the White mind with the image of the Sacred Symbol and that it is a POWERFUL ensign of WHITENESS.
Well the time is coming, and soon, that Whites WILL be looking for that Sign.

And you AA can readily see that that is, indeed, the case.

The Jew S Military is in fact a marginally trained gang of psycho misfits who, like their Blackwater brothers, delight in slaughtering unarmed and defenseless people - sort of a junior IDF. They are poorly disciplined and would scatter if they met a first world power in combat - full of PC cowards, faggots, niggers and dykes. The young man should never have been motivated to serve in the Jew S Armed forces, no White should.

'Willem', there is a BIG difference with 'NS Troops' under Rockwell and under a creature like Jeff Schoep. Simply using the Swastika, obviously does NOT 'transform' those women, big fat men, and dysfunctional noneheads seen in the pics of 'nsm' ...'into fighting men'. Rather it degrades the Swastika! In the ANP, Chairman Suhayda belonged to the ANP/NSWPP for 13 years, Taylor Bowles NSWPP/TNO for even longer. THESE are TRUE NS! Hail Rockwell!
