Seventeen year impeccable service of Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller was ignored as he was thrown in the brig for being a whistleblower to what went wrong in Afghanistan. I thought this government loves whistleblowers, the troops, and transparency. Remember when they praised pajama boy and kept his identity secret who thought Trump made a bad phone call with Ukraine? Remember how Lieutenant Vindman was praised for testifying against Trump during a phony impeachment? Did he get sent to the brig? Where’s the equal treatment of this whistleblower?
Instead he gets thrown in the brig and is facing court martial! Outrageous! Vindictive Biden at it again.
“Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller Jr. is currently in pre-trial confinement in the Regional Brig for Marine Corps Installations East aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune pending an Article 32 preliminary hearing,” said Capt. Sam Stephenson, a spokesman for Training and Education Command. “The time, date, and location of the proceedings have not been determined. Lt. Col. Scheller will be afforded all due process.”
(After publication the Marine Corps confirmed that Scheller is accused of the following offenses under the UCMJ: Article 88: Contempt toward officials, Article 90: Willfully disobeying superior commissioned officer, Article 92: Failure to obey an order, and Article 133: Conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman.)
Scheller first gained notoriety on Aug. 26, when he posted a video on Facebook and Linkedin criticizing the handling of the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan. In the video, Scheller accused senior military leaders of shirking their responsibilities, and questioned some of the command decisions that were made leading up to, and during, the final moments of America’s longest war.” Task & Purpose
These soldiers were given a gag order to not talk about what went down in Afghanistan, but this officer had to speak out. Now he is being punished. Psaki promised they’d be a transparent administration. That ship has sailed. You get imprisoned for exposing the truth. Ironically, everyone else including senators, congressmen, and the media are speaking out about the debacle in Afghanistan and aren’t being imprisoned. The cat was already out of the bag and this officer wasn’t revealing anything we didn’t already know or suspect.
This seems to be a reoccurring theme among anyone who posts objection to what is going on in this country. Cancel culture has spread to the military. A cop made fun of putting on a mask in a video he posted and was released from duty. We are getting out of control with all this tattling and cancelling. Facebook, You tube, and Twitter pick and choose what offends them and it’s always conservative posts. Something has to give. We’re behaving like children and our country is being run by children.
Our freedoms are being infringed on. We can’t pursue happiness with all this retaliation going on. Comedians like Jay Leno, Jerry Seinfeld, Bill Maher, and even Russell Brand are disgusted by political correctness and cancel culture as well as the coverups and hoaxes the Democrats have been involved in. Even basketball stars are speaking out about freedoms being infringed upon whether to be vaccinated or not. And the rest of the celebrities live in fear of speaking their truth for fear of being cancelled. Leave us all the hell alone! Let us live our lives with impunity.
Release Stuart Scheller and let him resign at his own free will like the courtesy we have shown Austin, Milley, and Blinken. Biden lied, soldiers died. Someone needs to be held accountable, but it’s not Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller.
