After the media harangued a career Navy serviceman for comments he made during a visit by Vice President Mike Pence, the serviceman has decided to retire.
“Command Master Chief Jonas Carter, of the carrier Harry S. Truman out of Norfolk, Virginia, stepped down from his position as the ship’s senior enlisted leader and will retire, the Truman’s commanding officer, Capt. Nick Dienna,” according to Military.com.
Pence was visiting the Truman on April 30, when Carter instructed sailors assembled to greet the Vice President to “clap like we’re at a strip club” when upon his arrival. Several members media outlets who were in attendance, including CNN, reported on Carter’s comments.
Spokeswoman Lt. Cmdr. Laura Stegherr called the comments “inappropriate.”
Now, the 30-year member of the service has been cowed into retirement.
“I want one last chance to tell the extraordinary men and women of TRUMAN how blessed and thankful I am to have served as your Command Master Chief,” Carter reportedly said. “When you find yourself making a mistake, own it, accept responsibility and learn from it. Today, I want each of you to know that I have taken full responsibility of my mistake last week and, together with my family, I have decided to retire.”
Marine and Iraq War veteran Jesse Kelly was not pleased with Carter’s treatment at the hands of the press.
“It’s critically important that we run all the rough, vulgar men out of our military and replace them with women and men who never curse or drink or fight. After all, wars are fought and won by polite people,” he said on Twitter.

CNN Pretty Boy Don Lemon Lumps All Trump Voters Together with Klansmen and Neo-Nazis in Vicious Rant
How on earth does this man have his own TV show?
On CNN Wednesday night, Don Lemon disparaged every single Trump voter by saying that they’re part of the same crowd as Klansmen and neo-Nazis.
In the transition from his show to Lemon’s, Chris Cuomo posed to Lemon a devil’s advocate position that “you can’t say everybody who voted for Trump is like the people who who went into the Capitol.” Lemon responded thus:
“If you are on that side, you need to think about the side you’re on. I’m never on the side of the Klan. Principled people, conservative or liberal, never on the Klan side. Principled people, conservative or liberal, never on the Nazi side. Principled people who are conservative or liberal, never on the side that treats their fellow Americans as ‘less than,’ that says that your fellow Americans should not exist, that says your fellow Americans should be in a concentration camp, or that sides with slavery, or sides with any sort of bigotry.”
Cuomo jumps in to continue playing devil’s advocate: “And if they say, ‘I don’t agree with those people, I just like Trump’s policies’?”
“Then get out the crowd with them,” Lemon says. “Get out of the crowd.”
Cuomo then retorts, again pretending to represent the other side: “‘I wasn’t in the crowd, I just voted for Trump.'”
Lemon replied: “You’re in the crowd who voted for Trump. If you voted for Trump, you voted for the person who the Klan supported. You voted for the person who Nazis support. You voted for the person who the alt-right supports. That’s the crowd you are in. You voted for the person who incited a crowd to go into the Capitol and potentially take the lives of lawmakers, took the lives of police officers, took the innocent lives who were there on the Capitol that day. You voted on that side. And the people in Washington are continuing to vote on that side.”
Quite the incoherent rant, don’t you think? For one, Klansmen and neo-Nazis are by and large not Trump supporters. Even if some were at one point, they were among the quickest to turn on Trump, for they realized that he was not and was never going to be Hitler 2.0. Plus, none of those who breached the Capitol were found to be members of the Klan or a neo-Nazi group. So there goes the thrust of Lemon’s argument.
Lemon also claims, without evidence, that Trump “incited” violence and encouraged his supporters to breach the Capitol. Even if you disapprove of Trump’s rhetoric, you cannot admit in good faith that he incited or encouraged any illegal activity.
Someone like Lemon should not be on TV. He is extraordinarily divisive and full of contempt for 75 million Americans.
