Watch: Black Marine GOES OFF On ‘Black Lives Matter’ With Message ‘Facebook Is Trying To Silence’

A former Marine is lashing out against the “Black Lives Matter” movement in an extensive but passionate video that is making the rounds on YouTube and has been picked up by several online media outlets.

“This ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement only promotes racism,” argued Michael Whaley, 27. “And now they’re encouraging black people to go and kill white people, because they want white people to feel what we felt 400 years ago. Newsflash: Were you living 400 years ago? Nope.”

So how’re you gonna let something in the past, that you never existed, that you were never born in affect how you live your life today? [To] have that much influence over you today?

All lives matter. That police officer that got killed by that black man because that black man listened to what y’all were saying about going out and killing white people. That police officer’s life mattered. That 9-year-old girl in Ferguson, Mo., that got shot in the head while she was doing her homework in a drive-by shooting that none of y’all protested — her life mattered.

Whaley was referring to Harris County, Texas, Sheriff’s Deputy Darren Goforth, who was fatally shot Friday, USA Today noted. Shannon J. Miles, the alleged shooter in the crime, has been charged with capital murder.

The “All Lives Matter” activist then referenced Jamyla Bolden, who was killed by an errant bullet on August 18. Suspect De’Eris Brown has been charged with second-degree murder, two counts of unlawful use of a weapon and three counts of armed criminal action in relation to the shooting, the St. Louis Post Dispatch reported. The outlet pointed out that the bullet also struck Bolden’s mother, injuring her leg.

Whaley acknowledged that he had been criticized by others in the black community with names including “Uncle Tom” and “house n–ger.” It has not noticeably affected him, however.

“I had drill instructors in boot camp that had better insults than y’all,” Whaley said in the video. “The reason I don’t have a lot of black supporters — I’m going to tell you the God’s honest truth.

The reason why I don’t have a lot of black supporters is because black people can’t accept the truth about themselves. Black people admitting to the truth is like them snitching on themselves, and black people have this no snitching rule.

Ouch! This EPIC Goof By The DNC Could Be The Biggest Fail Yet For Hillary’s Clueless Party

Right there, for all to see, prominently displayed on the Democrats’ web page reaching out to “Veterans and Military Families,” was a photo intended to show how the party of Hillary Clinton understands and supports U.S. service men and women. However, as the publication Military Times noted of the image depicting military veterans, the folks at the website got their countries mixed up:

Democrats’ election outreach efforts to veterans may need to start with a refresher course on what U.S. troops look like.

For starters, they don’t wear Polish military uniforms.

Twitter users were quick to pick up on the epic “Polish” goof by the Democrat National Committee (DNC), which many would say shows just how out of touch Democrats are when it comes to recognizing the true nature and value of America’s war fighters.

As the article in Military Times points out, the DNC had originally used a White House photo of President Obama greeting Polish military veterans during a 2011 trip to Warsaw. “The president had been cropped out, but faces of four elderly veterans wearing European-style military uniforms were visible above several paragraphs asserting the party’s ‘commitment to America’s veterans.’ The Polish military’s White Eagle insignia was clear on the headgear of two of the veterans.”

When Military Times alerted the heretofore clueless website managers of their photo faux pas, the image was quickly changed. Social media users, however, were not so quick to stop the snark about the egregious error.

We’ve heard no word yet on whether the head of the DNC, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, intends to push for Polish military vets to receive VA benefits or possibly even have U.S. voting rights…as long as they pledge to support the party’s nominee. (Okay, that’s a bit of Friday humor.)

200 Retired US Generals And Admirals Call Upon Congress To Reject ‘Defective’ Nuclear Deal With Iran

A group of over 200 retired U.S. generals and admirals has sent a letter to Congress in which they condemn the nuclear deal between Iran and the so-called 5+1 countries, the Washington Post reported.

The letter was a response to a petition in support of the deal which was sent to Congress last week by a group of three dozen retired U.S. military personnel.

The most recent action was initiated by retired Admiral Leon “Bud” Edney, who served as deputy chief of naval operations. Many of the senior military officers in the group worked in the White House under Democratic as well as Republican administrations.

The senior officers wrote in their letter that the deal – called the Joint Comprehensive Plan Of Action (JCPOA) – will “threaten the national security and vital interests of the United States and, therefore, should be disapproved by the Congress.”

The group says the agreement does not “cut off every pathway” to an Iranian nuclear weapon as is claimed by the Obama administration.

“To the contrary,” the officers wrote, “it actually provides Iran with a legitimate path to doing that simply by abiding by the deal.”

 ”JCPOA allows all the infrastructure the Iranians need for a nuclear bomb to be preserved and enhanced. Notably, Iran is allowed to: continue to enrich uranium; develop and test advanced centrifuges; and continue work on its Arak heavy-water plutonium reactor. Collectively, these concessions afford the Iranians, at worst, a ready breakout option and, at best, an incipient nuclear weapons capability a decade from now,” according to the officers.

Their arguments against the deal are very similar to those of Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu and other Israeli leaders from across the political spectrum.

“This agreement will enable Iran to become far more dangerous, render the Mideast still more unstable and introduce new threats to American interests as well as our allies. In our professional opinion, far from being an alternative to war, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action makes it likely that the war the Iranian regime has waged against us since 1979 will continue, with far higher risks to our national security interests. Accordingly, we urge the Congress to reject this defective accord,” the retired generals and admirals concluded their letter.

Marine Corps Vet And His Two Sons Go To Iraq To Fight ISIS

A 49 year-old Marine Corps combat veteran and his two sons, also Corps combat vets, have volunteered to go fight ISIS in Northern Iraq. They made the decision to go as individuals out of a strong desire to help those in need and take the fight to the enemy.

For security reasons, the three asked Fox News not to report their last names. The plan came together over the last few months. James, 23, the younger of two brothers, served two tours in Afghanistan as an infantryman, but had a burning desire to do more.

Nearly a year ago, he started planning a trip to Kurdistan in Northern Iraq to document the fight as a combat cameraman. After talking it over with his dad, Harry, who served in multiple combat tours including in Iraq, and his brother Josh, 29, who was deployed twice to Afghanistan, they decided they would go together.

“If the military, conventional forces were going, we’d go with them,” said James. “We’d sign back up, no problem. But they’re not. And that’s what it comes down to. They’re not and we’re capable and we’re going.”

The State Department neither approves of, nor forbids, their actions, and told Fox News that others have chosen to do the same. Humanitarian Defense Abroad, headed by another former Marine, is helping fund their mission through donations. It has supported dozens of other veterans desiring to return to the fight.

“ISIS has threatened our nation and us individually,” James explained. “They came out and said every military member needs to watch out because we are coming for you. We are Marines. We are going to bring the fight to them.”

The three plan to join the Kurd Peshmerga forces, which are taking the fight to ISIS in northern Iraq. “We are going to contribute on our level. My brother is a heavy machine gunner, my dad is a sniper, I was a rifleman…we are going to bring that together and present that to the Kurds and aid them in whatever way possible,” James added.

Their families are of course concerned. “Worst case scenario is one or two of us being killed,” the father Harry said. “And we would be fools to think that may not happen. We know that from being deployed. We have already accepted death and we’ve done everything we can to take care of our loved ones in case that happened.”

James agreed the cost of their collective decision could be high: “Obviously, losing my brother or my father would be terrible, devastating. But this is the life we live. We are warriors.”

For Harry, his reasons for wanting to go are simple: “I love my country, I love the ability to debate, I love the ability to worship as I want, I love the ability to pursue happiness and I’m willing to put my life on the line, not just for this country but for complete strangers.”

Josh offered similar sentiments: “My intent is to make my brothers who wear the uniform proud of me again and continue to bring havoc to the enemy and protect my family.” He recalled from his previous combat experience, “It wasn’t the gunfights that made me happy, it was the smiles [of those he helped protect], knowing that we did a good thing…I’m an American and this is what we do.”

Fox News reports that the father and his two sons gave the interview shortly before they shipped out and are now already on the ground in Iraq.

WATCH: Country Star Bring 93-Yr-Old Vet On Stage. What Happens Next Leaves Singer In Tears

The power of patriotism transformed the end of a Toby Keith concert from a standard encore to a star-spangled testimony.

During Friday night’s concert in Charlotte, N.C., the country music star brought retired Lt. Col. Harry Frizzell, 93, of Oklahoma to join him on stage.

“I want you to see what a true American hero looks like,” Keith told the crowd.

Keith then sang “American Soldier” and “Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue,” in Frizzell’s honor. Between songs, Keith spoke briefly about showing patriotism.

“Never apologize for being patriotic,” he told the crowd.

During the second song, Frizell sat in his wheelchair, a flag draped across him. When Keith finished the second song, he handed the microphone to Frizzell.

Frizell briefly recounted his service, starting with Manila in World War II 1945 and later how he was recalled to service in Korea. Cheers greeted Frizzell as he told the crowd he had flown armed helicopters in Vietnam.

“I am so proud to be a representative of the U.S. of A,” he told the crowd.

“I would like to say just a few sentences here,” he then said, openly struggling with emotion as he surveyed the crowd. “Just a few sentences … a few letters.”

“God bless America,” Frizzell said, jaw jutting forth with grit and patriotism as the words came tumbling forth. Both the veteran and Keith blinked and struggled to contain overflowing emotion.

Keith and his band, with Keith dabbing at his eyes under the brim of his cowboy hat, then played another round of “Courtesy of the Red White and Blue.” As the song echoed, Frizzell was slowly wheeled off stage. When the image of him saluting the crowd as he left flashed into the screen behind the band, the crowd’s roaring reached new heights. Keith tried to gain his composure, but continued weeping and walked off the stage with the veteran’s family.
