Why I hate the internet

| August 15, 2017 | 125 Comments

Someone sent me this picture yesterday of some guy in an 82d Airborne hat giving a Nazi salute. I guess it was taken in Charlottesville the other day. I suppose that the person who sent it mentioned that they had sent it to me because a bunch of illiterate morons have been calling me and leaving messages that I should be ashamed of myself for giving a Nazi salute.

Um, I wasn’t in Charlottesville on Sunday, the guy is standing erect (I need a wheelchair to get around) and, most importantly, I’m not a Nazi. My wife makes me shave every four days. So clearly, the bozo in photo isn’t me.

Last week, I was accused of lying about my military service because I posted a phony in a Facebook group and the person thought that the post was about me.

My point is that some folks out there are half-assing their “investigations” and a lot of people are losing what is left of their pea-sized minds trying to make the wrong people pay for things they didn’t do. Pay attention to what you’re doing when you start doxxing people on the internet.

    Someone that old wearing ACU trousers as well? I saved my old BDU trousers for knocking around in the woods but I always made sure to tear up my old worn out “grey pajamas” before throwing them away.

      I saved my old Army Class A jacket (SP4) and for a while, I had the Class A uniform that I retired in.

      Neither one of them fit anymore. 😯

      I think I need to get signed up with VA Move program and drop some weight.

      • LRRP2 says:

        I also hung up my old Class A Uniform , just as it was the day that I got discharged . Found out that if you hang them up in a closet — they shrink . I couldn’t grease up to fit in it again . It shrank that much ! I’d sign on the dotted line again if they could promise to get me into that shape again .

      Bought a bunch before I got out. Most comfortable pants to work in out there. All are long gone but my daughter is going to hook me up with awesome new camo once everyone decides what the hell they are going to use. I was thinking Navy Digital for my night Ninja raids.

    • MSG Eric says:

      I still have 5 different types of uniforms in boxes in my storage room o’ boxes.

      I recall being at Ft Lewis when ACUs became the new uniform. Any Ranger Joe’s like store with army gear for re-sale had boxes of BDUs for like 2 bucks for pants and 1.50 for the blouses. At that point I just didn’t even bother and decided to maintain them myself in my own collection.

    I’m thinking it might be one of the usual suspects, trying to get even… Just a thought.

  3. Ex-PH2 says:

    Yes, and you don’t have a fat tummy, either.

    The internet gives everyone a voice. It does not mean that everyone needs to be a social moron, but plenty of those show up and stick to you like glue or weed seeds.

  4. Steve says:

    Morons gotta moron.

  5. Mick says:

    — sigh —

    The mind staggers.

  6. JacktheJarhead says:

    Like I have said other places, these guys are Ass-Weasels. But the military is a mirror of our society. I met some people in the Corps who I have stayed friends with and others I would not urinate on them if they were on fire. These Douche Nozzles fall under the no Urinating rule.

  7. Ex-PH2 says:

    Idiot in the picture looks like his pants are about to drop off his flabby ass.

  8. Non Cedo Ferio says:

    This is why I trust Jonn and a handful of others to do SV investigations. Now with social media and the fact that so many morons out there trying to get famous by posting a viral SV video or pic. And not doing their due diligence you get crap like this. I’ve always supported the work that Jonn and some others do. But there’s just too many out there who don’t know what they are doing or doing it for the wrong reason. That does more harm than good. My 2 cents

  9. Silentium Est Aureum says:

    Some people’s higher brain function is limited to knee-jerk reaction.

  10. HT3 '83-'87 says:

    Just because he has a hat with the 82nd patch doesn’t mean he ever served. If this site has taught me anything its that any fool with a little cash can buy all the military accoutrements his/her POSer heart desires.

    My grandfather fought in the Pacific during WW2 to end fascism/imperialism and keep the world free, so fuck those guys are their silly-assed salutes.

    • Eden says:

      “Just because he has a hat with the 82nd patch doesn’t mean he ever served.”

      My thoughts exactly.

      • swormy says:

        Yep, I’ve run into my share of posers. They usually give that deer in the headlights look when you ask them their MOS.

        I also tend to run into “retired CSMs and 1SGs” stocking shelves at Walmart.

        • UpNorth says:

          Speaking of Walmart, I ran into a guy wearing a WWII Veteran hat there last weekend. He wasn’t a day over 50, so I remarked that he seemed to have aged rather well. He stammered and stuttered, doing the deer-in-the-headlights look, then he hurried away, leaving behind his cart. I pointed out to one of the employees that it appeared one of their customers had apparently been called away.

        • Eden says:

          I avoid Wal-Mart like the plague.

  11. Mayhem says:

    It doesn’t really look like a Nazi salute either it looks more like he is trying to imitate the pose in Michael Angelos’ “Portrait of David” and rather poorly too if you ask me (jes saying)

  12. Bymyself says:

    Just an observation about this pack of tards. When did the Nazi’s salute with their left hands? I know I’m out of touch with their world but is this a new thing they started doing?

  13. Club Manager says:

    Jonn, Jonn, Jonn. When are you going to learn when you have the balls to stand up for what is right and speak up, you become a target for every piss ant and ankle biter in the country. Keep fighting the good fight and F em.

  14. Dave Hardin says:

    Stop calling poor Jonn, (202) 630-8468 there ya go. Call me instead, Jonn lost his give a shit a long time ago, I can get you in touch with someone that might have a little left.

    I actually enjoy talking to loons, gun nutz, libtards, Nazi’s, skinheads, end times prophecy types, LGBTQ and most other forms of the alphabet.

    Posers can call 24/7 – 365 I try to provide quality customer service.

  15. Perry Gaskill says:

    Dunno. I saw that photo, and my first reaction was how much the neo-Nazi doofi have let themselves go:

  16. Dan says:

    Real Nazis use the right arm.

  17. David says:

    All the pictures I have seen of these “militia” show a bunch of overweight idiots with no commonality of weaponry, dress, headgear, footwear, or manner of wear of their various acoutrements like bayonets, hunting knives, etc. The phrase ‘wannabe’ definitely comes to mind.

  18. Sapper3307 says:

    Were any of the callers disbarred?

  19. It is all okay Jonn… I’ll give you the Dixie Cup some nice sailor over in DC gave me a few years ago and YOU can be Popeye The Sailor for a bit.

    Just tell folks you ran out of spinach and need the wheelchair until ya get more.

  20. timactual says:

    But they are wearing military themed accesories! That makes them manly men doing manly things in manly ways.

    Looks to me like the organizer of the demonstration rounded up a bunch of homeless winos. Tomorrow they will be back on the street corners asking for spare change.

    Makes a truly inspiring recruiting poster; “Be All that you can be–in the Klan”. Or “The few, the proud, the Klan”.

  21. Jonn Lilyea says:

    From the New York Times;

    After a day of work at the Engineering Research Center at the University of Arkansas, Kyle Quinn had a pleasant Friday night in Bentonville with his wife and a colleague. They explored an art exhibition at the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art and dined at an upscale restaurant.

    Then on Saturday, he discovered that social media sleuths had incorrectly identified him as a participant in a white nationalist rally some 1,100 miles away in Charlottesville, Va. Overnight, thousands of strangers across the country had been working together to share photographs of the men bearing Tiki torches on the University of Virginia campus. They wanted to name and shame them to their employers, friends and neighbors. In a few cases, they succeeded.

    But Mr. Quinn’s experience showed the risks.

    A man at the rally had been photographed wearing an “Arkansas Engineering” shirt, and the amateur investigators found a photo of Mr. Quinn that looked somewhat similar. They were both bearded and had similar builds.

    By internet frenzy standards, that was proof enough.

    • Yef says:

      So, this is what’s going on.
      It is the leftish anti-fa dudes the ones calling people out without doing any research.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Mob tactics on the internet. Who’d athunk it?
      And aren’t these same howling monkeys the ones who scream and cry and throw tantrums and furniture if people aren’t ‘nice’ to them, whatever that means?

      • UpNorth says:

        Jennifer Lawrence, an actress some say, has turned her 7 16 million Twitter followers loose, telling them to doxx anyone they know in any of the pictures to out them, notify their employers, family, friends and whatever.
        What could possibly go wrong with that?
        “That’s exactly what Jennifer Lawrence is doing. In a Facebook post directed at her 16,000,000 fans, Lawrence commanded: “These are the faces of hate. Look closely and post anyone you find,” and added, “You can’t hide with the internet you pathetic cowards!”

    • timactual says:

      I can sympathize with Mr. Quinn.

      I am frequently told by strangers that I look like their wife’s uncle or the guy that works at whatever, etc. I jokingly reply that as long as I don’t look like a “Wanted” poster I am okay with it. Once a woman came up to me and said that I looked like Nick Faldo, a professional golfer. I happened to see a golf tournament soon after, and she was right. It was eerie. As you say, same haircut, similar builds.

      So far, thankfully, I have been luckier than Mr. Quinn.

  22. Dave Hardin says:

    All I am saying is…some statues should not be seen.

  23. Skidmark says:

    Being from Detroit, my favorite hat is grey with an old english D on the front…Doesn’t mean I ever played for the Tigers. Societies IQ’s are dropping exponentially every day.
    With this line of thinking, every person with any sports apparel must be a fake professional athlete…Make America Smart Again!

  24. Dave Hardin says:

    Those web sleuths should track this guy down. Claims to have gone on covert ops in Russia. Says he is not afraid to kill people. Hates LGBTQ types.

  25. Jeff LPH 3, 63-66 says:

    Is the above Bill Murrey’s bunk mate from STRIPES???

    • Commissar says:

      He definitely did not disavow them today.

      • IDC SARC says:

        hmmmm..and how does that make you feel?

        • Commissar says:

          As an American it makes me sad and disgusted.

          However, his idiotic actions in the last week has done democrats and the left a huge favor. Nobody has harmed more republican politicians and the GoP more than Trump.

          By the time the Trump presidency ends the careers of several top republicans will be destroyed and the GoP brand will be damaged for decades. If the party even survives his presidency intact.

          • Perry Gaskill says:

            Lars, I’d imagine IDC SARC was being sardonic in asking you how you feel about it. It’s the kind of thing a doctor might ask a neurotic during a psychotherapy session. Apparently, since your humor DNA strand is missing, you didn’t get it.

            It’s also a real stretch for you to express concern over the GOP “brand” when you’ve been consistent about not giving a fuzzy flip in the past. Such triggers even my own bullshit meter, and I’ve got it set for a fairly high response level where you’re concerned.

      • Fyrfighter says:

        Did you even listen to the speech? or just read the huffpo account of it? He repeatedly called out the nazi’s the problem you lefties have is he also called out the scum on your side that showed up, without a permit, looking for a fight. TDS is showing again

      • timactual says:

        So what? He has been condemning the Klan, etc. for decades. Evidently you and other idiots think it necessary for him to do it daily, and in a format acceptable to you.

        Here’s a daily affirmation that may meet your standards;

  26. Joe says:

    C’mon, these are the guys you snuggle in bed with, politically speaking. What’s a few patches between friends? Yeah, these are your people.

    You have a love hate relationship with the internet?
