    sports fans boo military

    https://www.foxnews.com/sports/portl...s-trump-pledge

    Articles like this annoy me. Not only the booing but the "journalist" writing that the enlistees swore to obey the orders of, specifically, President Trump. I never swore an oath to any specific POTUS so why are they even mentioning Trump? And this article comes from Fox News!

    "Fans at a National Women’s Soccer League game rained down boos during a U.S. Armed Forces swearing-in ceremony Wednesday after the enlistees were asked to pledge they would obey the orders of President Trump."

    I do not like it either. The important thing is that this happened at a women's soccer game so no one saw it.

    if they didn’t get publicity for this they’d get no publicity at all.

    Again the reporting is terrible. For those who have not taken the oath of enlistment or do not otherwise know its content this is what is states:

    I, (state name of enlistee), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God."
    Did the fans boo at that oath or did some bonehead substitute the specify President Trump in place of “President of the United States.” Ido not know from reading the article which leads me to assume the generic term President ...... was replaced by the President Trump, or whether the fans were protesting the original and proper oath rather than the incorrect oath.

    So drawing conclusions or doing a what if scenario seems fruitless. But I will say that if the change occurred as stated in the article someone’s head should roll. If the fans booed at the proper oath, then damn them.

    It's Portland. Just from the little I read about this place, it sounds more and more like snowflake / Antifa heaven.

    No kidding. Until the anti-American antics of that mean face lady made the news, I had no idea we had a women's soccer team. Not sure why we do unless you like watching a sport played at 60% of its potential.

    Just saw this. What a bunch of boneheads. Let's boo some kids, that are the 1% of the population willing to do so, choosing to serve their country. Guess the people booing are booing future President's since some of those kids will make the military a career. But it is Portland. Guess Antifa likes women's soccer games. Go figure!! Explains a lot.

    Being as Trump is the current POTUS, yeah, they did swear to obey "his" orders, as well as any other POTUS who might be in office. Service member do not choose which POTUS they obey.

    As for the booing fans, they can perform unnatural acts upon themselves.

    I would have liked to see the officials announce to the crowd that they are now going to do the entire oath again. And if there are any boos, we'll do it once more. And we'll do it again and again until the crowd learns respect. The game will start as soon as the oath is complete. Could be a minute from now, could be an hour from now. Your choice.

    Isn't that the same sports gang that knelt during the National Anthem?

    Anyone who "Boos" our military needs to spend a month in some other country.

    I can think of a few more than a few countries that qualify.

    Who was the Einstein who thought it would be a great idea to swear in recruits mid-field at a Portland women's soccer game?
