Jesse Nieto Marine_Opposition to Islamic Terrorism

-- The following e-mail comes from one of our sponsoring advertisers. Through their support, GOPUSA can continue to bring you the best array of conservative news, information, commentary, and discussions.

Marines Outlawed this Patriotic Father from Expressing Opposition to Islamic Terrorism. He Needs Your Help.

Jesse Nieto loyally served America as a Marine for 25 years - including 2 combat tours in Vietnam. And as a father, he gave our Nation his most precious possession -- his son, Marc.

Marc and 16 of his Navy shipmates were killed when Islamic terrorists bombed the USS Cole on October 12, 2000.
This summer, the Marine command at Camp Lejeune - for whom Jesse Nieto currently works - ordered him to stop expressing his opposition to Islamic terrorism - the very Islamic terrorism that killed his son.
Jesse Nieto refused to be silenced; he refused to dishonor the death of his son. And so now he's in the throes of a legal battle to overturn this outrageous order.
Once you know the facts, I'm sure you will agree that ordering Jesse Nieto not to connect Islam with the terrorist attacks that killed his son is political correctness run amuck in the military.
After all Jesse Nieto has done for America - for you and me - will you help fight this outrageous order by making a tax-deductible donation today?
Your donation is tax-deductible.
Here are the facts surrounding this shocking order:
Jesse Nieto is a 25-year Marine veteran whose honorable service to our nation included two combat tours in Vietnam. He achieved the rank of Gunnery Sergeant before retiring from the Corps. Since 1994, Nieto has worked as a civilian employee for his beloved Marines at the Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in North Carolina.
Tragedy suddenly struck Jesse Nieto on October 12, 2000. That's when Islamic terrorists killed his youngest son, Marc, and 16 of Marc's Navy shipmates when they bombed the USS Cole.
Ever since, Nieto has displayed various decals on his vehicle expressing anti-terrorist sentiments. These decals contain messages such as: "Remember the Cole: 12 Oct 2000," "No Quarter Islamic Terrorist," and "We Died, They Rejoiced."
On July 31, 2008, two military police officers (MPs) issued Nieto a ticket for displaying "offensive material."
Nieto refused to remove the "offensive" decals from his vehicle. Two weeks later, the Base Magistrate ordered him in writing to remove his vehicle from the base until all decals were removed. He further banned Nieto's vehicle from all other federal installations.
GET THIS: The order prevents Nieto from driving his vehicle to Arlington National Cemetery (a federal installation) to visit the grave of his fallen son.
Jesse asked the Thomas More Law Center for help.
The Thomas More Law Center is a national, nonprofit public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan. After conducting an investigation into the matter, the Thomas More Law Center filed a federal lawsuit against the Camp Lejeune Commanding Officer and the Base Magistrate. The civil rights lawsuit challenges the military's ban on Nieto's anti-terrorist decals on the grounds that it violates his constitutional rights to freedom of speech and the equal protection of the law.
The Law Center's investigation revealed that numerous vehicles are permitted on the Base that display a variety of anti-Christian, sexual, commercial and personal messages. Furthermore, according to information provided to the Law Center pursuant to a Freedom of Information Request, the directive under which Nieto's decals have been banned has not been enforced at Camp Lejuene for the last 5 years.
So why are they banning decals that express opposition to Islamic terrorism?
The banning of these decals is political correctness run amuck in the military. Our troops are being killed by Islamic terrorists, 9/11 was caused by Islamic terrorists, Islamic terrorists want to destroy America, Islamic nations persecute Christians, and now the Marine command at Camp Lejuene is victimizing a father whose son was killed by Islamic terrorists while serving our nation. Defend Jesse Nieto's Right to Battle Islamic Terrorism
Perhaps the next thing the PC Police at the Marine command will want to do is eliminate the Marine's Hymn since the phrase 'to the shores of Tripoli' celebrates the Marine victory over Islamic forces in the Barbary Coast War and the Battle of Derne.
We cannot be afraid as a Nation to name who our enemy truly is. Radical Islam has declared war on America. Our veterans and current combat troops understand this - Jesse Nieto intimately understands this: his son, Marc was murdered by this enemy.
The bottom line: If we fear to truthfully identify our enemy, we will ultimately be defeated by him.

Sincerely yours,

Richard Thompson
President and Chief Counsel
Thomas More Law Center
