Coast Guard Rescuer Is Racist

Post by skb12172 » Sat Sep 15, 2018 6:10 pm

And has been removed from his rescue team and suspended in the middle of an emergency, because the usual suspects are butt hurt that he made the OK sign on the air. You know, the OK sign the people of been using for more than 100 years now? I am so completely fed up with this fucking bullshit. I wonder how many lives this is going to cost?

There must be an end to this intimidation by those who come to this great country, but reject its culture.

So the video shows dudeman pulling a not-so-surreptitious OK sign flash when he noticed the CAPT was live on camera. So he's a troll. Since it's pretty well established that the entire 'OK sign = NAZI' thing was a 4chan head-fake to trigger liberals into thinking it's a neo-nazi thing (which it isn't), the media, the Coast Guard, and everybody inbetween apparently bought it hook, line, and sinker.

From the angle he was seated relative to the camera, even throwing a 'peace sign' could have been construed as the 'british-middle-finger'. But had he been a pacific islander throwing the shaka, nobody says boo.

We are all well and truly screwed.

When did the "OK Sign" become white power, anyway?

Total BS. looked to me like a guy scratching his cheek/ear. Read the latest excoriation by "He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named"...
