Two days ago, on Saturday, I was contacted by a fan of The Angel Clark Show. That fan sent me an image that has since been seen by millions of people. The image was a picture of that person, wearing their Navy dress blues. Their face was covered with a hand-written sign, “I DIDN’T JOIN THE NAVY TO FIGHT FOR AL QAEDA IN A SYRIAN CIVIL WAR!”
I looked into the person’s background, and found that they were indeed located in the United States and a part of the Navy. I thanked them for their service, and told them I would make sure their message was heard. It’s against the law to make a political statement in uniform, so this person is risking their livelihood. I also told them I would keep them as anonymous as I could, meaning, despite current fears of NSA surveillance, I would never tell anyone who they were.
The image struck a chord with the rest of my fans, and received thousands upon thousands of shares. I began being contacted by members of the media, requesting the information for the sailor who sent me the original picture. No matter who asks, my answer is no. I also received other pictures from people in the military, all with the same type of message. It seems the first image inspired many in the military.
I refused to put my logo on the original image that I was sent, because it’s not about me, it’s about the message. I had thought the most offensive thing I could have seen done with this image was someone defacing it to claim credit instead of the brave sailor who wanted to make a stand. It turns out I was wrong.
Many members of the mainstream media are now claiming that the photo was “faked” by the Syrian Electronic Army (SEA). The SEA took some of the images floating around on social media and “hacked” into the official website of the marines, marines.com, on Monday. The media is now claiming that all these images are obviously faked, and it must have been done by the SEA.
This is absolutely not true. There are thousands of members of the United States military who do not want this war. Please remember that as people try to turn a brave message from a sailor into propaganda to prove we must go to war, the very opposite of what this sailor was trying to accomplish.
