Lt. Gen. Jay Silveria: Sucks when you discover you’re a tool for leftie race-baiting cadets who incite hatred over a hoax. Get the facts before you lecture.
From Fox News
A racist message posted outside an Air Force Academy dorm in September was written by one of the alleged victims, the school confirmed Tuesday, casting blaring initial coverage of the incident — which lauded the school superintendent’s forceful reaction in an apparent bid to ding President Trump — in a new light.
The student who wrote the slurs, which were discovered in September outside the rooms of five black students at an Air Force Academy dormitory in Colorado Springs, Colo., was no longer at the school, the Academy confirmed. A spokesman declined to say whether the student withdrew or was expelled, citing privacy laws. The student’s name was not released.
In a written statement Tuesday, the academy said: “We can confirm that one of the cadet candidates who was allegedly targeted by racist remarks written outside of their dorm room was actually responsible for the act. The individual admitted responsibility and this was validated by the investigation.”
The surprising announcement was a jarring turn in an episode that prompted the superintendent of the Colorado Springs academy to deliver a stern message warning students that racists were not welcome at the school.
The speech, delivered by Lt. Gen. Jay Silveria, attracted nationwide attention and was viewed more than 1 million times on YouTube.
In his remarks, Silveria forced all 4,000 cadets to stand at attention shortly after the slurs were reported.
“Reach for your phones. I’m serious: Reach for your phones…Grab your phones. I want you to videotape this — so that you have it, so that you can use it, so that we all have the moral courage together,” Silveria said.
“We would also be tone deaf not to think about the backdrop of what is going on in our country,” Silveria told cadets, referencing the recent violence in Charlottesville, Va., Ferguson, Mo., and controversial protests in the NFL in which dozens of players have knelt during the national anthem.
He added: “If you can’t treat someone with dignity and respect, get out.”
Dear General Silveria: If you’re a knee jerk who grandstands for race-baiting lowlifes and overpaid thugletes who disrespect the flag and the anthem, get the fuck out yourself. You’re no good to any military academy if you promote impulsive politically correct stupidity designed to pander to black radical bullies. They accomplished exactly what they wanted. They played your academy and you went right along with it.
Get all the facts first before you make a bloviating ass out of yourself in front of 4000 cadets.
The liberal media such as The Washington Post, Axios and The New York Times immediately jumped on the bandwagon with anti-Trump race-baiting. None of them will retract their garbage or acknowledge that they played a part in spreading the hoax as fact.
