One of the overwhelming successes of the Obama administration was gutting the uniformed services of any semblance of having, well, guts. Instead, at least at the more senior ranks of both the officer and noncommissioned officer corps we are seeing rule by SJWs intent on embracing every new depravity that comes down the pike and hypersensitive to any possible criticism that they are not sufficiently woke.
Today’s example is this.
US Coast Guard on hand gesture seen used by a support staff member (bottom left) during an interview on @MSNBC this afternoon:
"The Coast Guard has identified the member and removed him from the response. His actions do not reflect those of the United States Coast Guard." pic.twitter.com/jjwZmCFFBI

At about the 0:09 mark you see this:
As a nation, we are losing our minds. This has been debunked way too many times, but it appears the @USCG is stock on stupid and surrendering to the ignorant, paranoid, tinfoil hat mob. https://t.co/H9qawQ5est

This nonsense has become a favorite sport of the left.
And, of course, rather than telling these morons who see neo-nazis or “alt-right” members under their beds to just f*** right off, the Coast Guard caved.
The U.S. Coast Guard says it “removed” a member from its Hurricane Florence response team Friday after he made an “OK” hand gesture on live TV that the service branch deemed “offensive.”
The unidentified team member was caught looking into the camera and then swiftly making the hand gesture, prompting a backlash on social media.
“We are aware of the offensive video on twitter – the Coast Guard has identified the member and removed him from the response. His actions do not reflect those of the United States Coast Guard,” the agency tweeted.
The Guard is now investigating the matter. In a statement, the agency said the incident was a “frustrating distraction” amid the dangerous hurricane that is poised to affect more than 10 million people this week in the Southeast.
And do you know why it’s a distraction? Because the Coast Guard apparently is commanded by a bunch of p***ies who will kowtow to just about any ridiculous allegation by any ridiculous person.
For future reference, these are ways your hand or hands cannot be placed in public. Or, if you live in SF or NYC, even in private.
