The folks at Military Phonies send us their work on this Jeffrey Prosen fellow who came to our attention a few months ago when he made a video about confronting employees of the Bureau of Land Management;
For some reason, he feels a need to tell the BLM employees about his best friend dying in his arms, how the employee couldn’t walk in his boots and confront the “nightmares” that he has to live with. How that is part of the political discussion, I have no idea. In fact, it’s pretty clear to me that because the people accompanied Proser unfurled an Oathkeeper banner behind him while he went on his little tirade, it was pretty much all theatrics.
At the Military Phonies link, they demonstrate how Prosen is quick to pull out the “wounded veteran” card, you know, even if it’s inappropriate;
I don’t know who would have shot his helicopter if he was on a training exercise, but there it is. According to Military Phonies, there were no aircraft accidents the year Prosen claims he was shot down. Prosen also claims that he was a gunnery sergeant and a sniper and that he retired from the Marine Corps. The National Personnel Records Center Disagrees with those claims;
He spent about 18 months in the Marine Corps and he was hospitalized for almost a year, but his time in the Marines was back in 1980 – what war was he fighting? In Arlington, Virginia? Were those dirty Rebs acting up again? Lance Corporal is a long ways from Gunnery Sergeant. He may have been medically retired for whatever he was hospitalized for, but he wants to give the impression of a long career, that’s not true. And that “Marksman” badge would probably preclude any sniper training, since that’s the lowest class of rifle qualification.
That’s mainly why I’ve avoided the Oathkeepers. They are jam packed with storytellers and phonies. I don’t think they check the creds of veterans, so it’s a magnet for liars. Well, that, and they attract every nutjob and conspiracy theory adherent that you can imagine.
Like Prosen here. He had a perfectly honorable career, but he had to start running his mouth to the BLM employee to scare her with his war stories to prove what a patriot he is. And, behold!!!
