Banned in uniform — “Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America”
“Christians have been the ones who’ve had to go underground and in the closet”
Todd Starnes from Fox News reports, Soldier Told Not to Read Levin, Limbaugh or Hannity in Uniform:
A veteran member of the U.S. Army Band said he is facing retribution and punishment from the military for having anti-Obama bumper stickers on his car, reading books written by conservative authors like Mark Levin and David Limbaugh, and serving Chick-fil-A sandwiches at his promotion party.
Master Sgt. Nathan Sommers, a 25-year Army veteran and conservative Christian based at Fort Myer in Washington, believes his outspoken opposition to gay marriage prompted higher-ups to take a closer look at his beliefs. The recipient of an Army Commendation Medal and a soloist at the funeral of former First Lady Betty Ford, Sommers said his core beliefs are enough to mark a soldier for persecution in today’s military.
“It seems like with the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell – that the Christians have been the ones who’ve had to go underground and in the closet – for fear of retaliation and reprisals,” Sommers told Fox News. “Christians feel like they can’t be forthright with their faith. They have to hide.” …
Army documents obtained by Fox News indicate Sommers was told that his actions bordered on being disrespectful to President Obama and the “slightest inference of disrespect towards superiors can have a demoralizing effect on the unit.”
It didn’t stop with expression of opinion, the soldier was told not to read David Limbaugh’s The Great Destroyer” or Mark Levin’s Ameritopia:
Sommers was reading Limbaugh’s “The Great Destroyer” backstage at a U.S. Army Band concert at the U.S. Capitol. A superior officer told him that he was causing “unit disruption” and was offending other soldiers.
“I wasn’t reading aloud,” he said. “I was just reading privately to myself. I was told they were frowning on that and they warned me that I should not be reading literature like that backstage because it was offensive.”
In another episode, he had been caught backstage reading a copy of Levin’s “Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America.”
Sommers said he was told to refrain from reading the book “while in uniform or within sight of anyone from the band.”
If you have spoken to that soldier, chances are you’re already in the database.

Chikin’ can get you in trouble, too, in Pres. Snoop-Dog’s military.
With a culture that squashes opinions that differ from the collective thought of the day gulags are not far behind.
I seriously doubt the government wants information on all citizens. This is just a cover to pinpoint the ones they do want to monitor, i.e. the ones who speak out against the obama administration or republicans. He did tell his San Fran campaign dinner participants that he hadn’t destroyed the republican party YET. Maybe this is a tool he is using to shut us up…that and with all the other government agences under his aegis.
BTW, has congress been sitting on their thumbs for the last 4 1/2 years not to know all this was going on? I have never trusted the obama administration and no longer trust congress. Either they are in on it or they are remarkably clueless. I really feel the republicans in Washington, with a few exceptions, are like the three monkeys.
I’d suggest a Kindle…. they’ve already got his credit card records anyway.
An iPhone works just as well.
A superior officer told him that he was causing “unit disruption” and was offending other soldiers.
Holy crap! If someone reading a book causes “unit disruption”, what the hell will happen to them when the Taliban opens up on’em with their AK-47s?
I had really hoped our military would be made of tougher stuff.
He was in the band.
Since the repeal of DADT, the greatest number of sexual assaults are M/M.
The guardians of our nation and its institutions, of organizations like the APA groups (both psychology and psychiatry), Universities, Boy Scouts and the Catholic priesthood have been cowardly in bowing down to political pressure from sexual activists and they have been irresponsibly and negligent in failing to study science, clinical medicine and mental health, police and coroner statistics and as well as Scripture.
Plain, hard evidence is there in abundance to show that same sex attraction is a symptom, strongly correlated with other psychological and environmental and relational conditions as well as addictions and mental health issues. Evidence also shows that Homo and bi-sexual activity produces a 40-80% times increased incidence of every STD, including those that are incurable (Hepatitis, HPV, Herpes and HIV) as well as a new super-bug strain of Gonorrhea that is also untreatable at this point.
These STDs and other health issues have passed the epidemic stage to syndemic conditions where two or more diseases together produce more complex conditions that are much more difficult to treat.
Among teens, hetero, homo and bi-sexual, the greater the amount of sexual activity, the worse their consequent psychological and physical state and future economic and social/relational prognosis.
Tolerance and acceptance has done young people no service at all, in fact, it is a death sentence. In fact, destroying human life from abortion to promoting risky sexual lifestyles, from Benghazi to Afghanistan, killing Americans seems to be Obama’s special forte, if not his primary goal.
Sorry – the link doesn’t work. HERE it is.
After hearing today about the U.S. soldier who is being harassed because of his reading materials (Conservative), bumper stickers (anti-POS) and emails I don’t doubt the possibility these warnings are genuine.
DHS insider: It’s about to get very ugly
If true, that is some scary $#!+ ~
Hope and pray to God that it’s wildly exaggerated ~
“Today, the discriminatory law known as ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ is finally and formally repealed. As of today, patriotic Americans in uniform will no longer have to lie about who they are in order to serve the country they love [unless they’re Conservative Christians–that bunch had better keep their beliefs and practices to themselves].”
I wonder if the army forbade reading the NYT and WP when Bush was president, seeing as how they were constantly disrespectful of the Commander in Chief.
Armed Forces Radio didn’t want them listening to Limbaugh.
Between the rise of m/m violence and the blatant attacks on Christianity and Conservatives…. I find myself less worried my son will be injured in combat and more worried about the effects that being ordered to sublimate his God and his principals will cause in his life.
Well, Christians live by this: we obey government until they require us to do something contrary to our faith.
More and more I feel like I’m stuck in a continuous loop of the movie “Idiocracy”. I’m told, too, that the US Army is also a new training ground for future drug dealers. They get to learn how to use heavy armaments that way. I very much fear we’re gonna have to go to war with our own gooberment just too survive.
Nothing new about being a training ground for drug dealers.
I miss the good old days when Sunday meant going to church services. The DI went through the ranks asking Catholic or Protestant. If you weren’t Catholic you were Protestant. Every swinging dick went to church on Sunday.
There is a concerted effort to infest our military with leftist idiots willing to do the bidding — including hte murder of Americans — at the behest of Obama.
How the hell this guy was elected president is just beyond comprehension.
We know sane Germans felt the same way after Hitler was elected Chancellor.
