You can pull that National Anthem kneeling all you want outside the U.S. military that won’t fly inside the armed services!
Janaye Ervin, U.S. Navy, wanted to serve her country which is why she signed up for the military. I’ve been there before and I served eight years and loved every minute.
I guess what many do not understand is signing up for the U.S. Military is compared to signing up for another country. It has it’s own laws, rules, regulations and they have to be followed or you face serious circumstances.
Ervin decided to bring her Black Lives Matter attitude into an even where the American flag and National Anthem were on display. Instead of following the rules of the military she sat down. What happened next is what I call military justice.
From Blue Lives Matter:
Intelligence Specialist 2nd Class Janaye Ervin is a reservist on active duty with the Pacific Fleet in Pearl Harbor. On September 19th she was in uniform and refused to stand or salute the flag during the national anthem. This was no misunderstanding, she made her intentions perfectly clear on her Facebook page. Her Facebook page is now deleted, but on it she said:
“I have been proudly serving in the US Navy Reserve Force since November 2008. I have pledged to support and defend the Constitution of the United States and to spread freedom and democracy around the world. I will never waver from that pledge. I feel like a hypocrite singing about the ‘land of the free’ when I know that only applies to some Americans. I will gladly stand again, when ALL AMERICANS are afforded the same freedom.”
The U.S. Navy didn’t take too kindly to one of their sailors trying to drag their national anthem and flag into her Black Lives Matter nonsense. Ervin has lost her security clearance because of her flag-hating attitude. The Navy also reportedly “threatened” her with jail time for violating the Navy Uniform Code of Military Justice, which states that she could be punished for disobeying a lawful general order.
The Navy’s protocol handbook states that all in uniform must salute during the anthem. They must also face the flag, or face the direction of the music if the flag is not visible.
Rather than take responsibility for her mistake, Janaye Ervin has doubled-down and has reached out to the media to try to put political pressure on the Navy to allow her to continue to disrespect our country while serving the same role for the U.S.Navy.
Janaye Ervin wrote, “The Navy has decided to punish me for defending the Constitution and has taken away my equipment I need to do my Naval job. It was my pleasure serving my country, I love it dearly, that is why I must do this for you. I will keep you all posted on what happens next!”
She’s going to lose this in civilian court if it goes there because the military has its own courts that protect those laws Ervin decided to turn her back on. She could actually get jail time if the Navy wanted to really pursue it.
Failure to obey these rules could be charged as a violation of Article 92 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice — failure to obey a lawful general order or regulation. Now she’s going to get a dishonorable discharge and she has only herself to blame.
