Former Blue Angels commander disciplined for ignoring lewd and crude conduct
The former commanding officer of the U.S. Navy’s Blue Angels has been disciplined for condoning behavior among his pilots and officers that included sexual harassment and lewd remarks.Welcome to the Obama military. Once we raised and trained men to be warriors, and we accepted that they would think and act like testosterone-filled pirates because those are the sort of men who get the job done when it's all on the line. But now these men have to step aside--or be removed--because a new generation wants to play too, and this generation is comprised of self-entitled brats who think that the world revolves around them and their feelings. They claim that they want to be treated "equally", but what they really mean is that they expect everyone else to adapt to their own sensibilities and diminished abilities and coddle them like their helicopter parents did. And if they don't like the current macho culture or if they can't hack the physical requirements of training, well then the old standards just have to go because all that matters is that every female, every homosexual and every fat-body who wants to join or even command a combat unit be allowed to do so. Of course when and if push comes to shove again, America will be dependent on these softie kids for it's defense because all of the war-fighters have either been driven out of the military or else they are stuck in "sensitivity training" for the duration.
According to Military.com, an investigation by the Pacific Fleet command determined that Capt. Gregory McWherter condoned the behavior during his second time in command of the airshow squadron from May 2011 to November 2012.
Their were no allegations from his first time in the position from 2008 to 2010 and was even praised for improving the squadron "in both climate and mission execution."
He was removed from his duties in April after a member of the squadron complained about the atmosphere and received a letter of reprimand likely to end his career.
He also was relieved of his duties as an executive officer at the Naval Base Coronado near San Diego. He had been in line to become the base's commanding officer next April.
This is BS. How about we just let our fighting men be men and assign a few drivers to drop the perpetually-offended wussies who don't like it off at the nearest bus stop. It's the military, dammit, not summer camp.
