Rep. Gohmert eis vryheid vir die tronkbewaarder Marine; dubs militêre leierskap 'afskuwelik'

Gohmert onthul op “jakkals & Vriende-naweek” dat na sy besoek aan Scheller in die brig, die Marine -offisier lyk in 'n goeie gees en is omring deur medediensmense wat “eintlik soos” hom. But the issue lies in upper military leadership and their priorities.

We discovered they had a psychological operation to try to turn social media against him,” hy het gesê. “It’s incredible. Instead of worrying about the well-being of their troops, they’re worried about how they’re doing on social media.

PARENTS OF JAILED MARINE OFFICER SCHELLER FIGHT BACK: ‘THEY WANT TO BURN OUR SON’

They’re more worried about their image in social media than they are in their troops that got killed in Afghanistan,” he went on. “It is really abysmal what this leadership of this military has turned into.

Scheller himself shared the same sentiment in the viral video that got him in trouble. The Marine released his public statement on Aug. 27 expressing how he believes leadership should be held accountable for the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan, which left 13 service members todie in vainand thousands of Americans and Afghan allies stranded.

Instead of the military negotiating an honorable discharge for Scheller, the Marine’s parents on Friday said the Marine Corps aims toburn our son.Gohmert explained that even allowing Scheller to resign would be a punishment but military leadership is sayingthat’s not enough.

This leadership thinks they’re going to stick it to Stu when they’re doing all kinds of damage,” hy het gesê.

Gohmert suggested that this kind of lashing out from the military is causing future Marines and service members to think twice before enlisting.

Look what they do to people [who] stand up,” hy het gesê. “They’re a bunch of cowards but look at what they do to somebody who does have courage.

The congressman said Scheller’s incarceration will be reviewed throughout the next few days with hopes the military realizesthis is not the way to go.

You don’t want to be meaner than you treat the enemy,” hy het gesê.
