Lindsey Stone – Disrespecting the Tomb of the Unknowns November 20, 2012

Forgive this rant on this blog.  Several months ago, a person posted a video mocking Islam and it created issues that resulted in riots.  Yesterday we have a young woman named Lindsey Stone who works for LifeCapeCod posting a picture on the Internet of her disrespecting the Tomb of the Unknowns.    When taken to task for the posting her response was what one would expect of a self described “douchebag” (her words…not mine).  Here is her response.  “Whoa, whoa, whoa…wait.  This is just us being the douchebags that we are, challenging authority in general. Much like the pic posted the night before, of me smoking right next to a no smoking sign. OBVIOUSLY we meant NO disrespect to people that serve or have served our country.”  I find it particularly interesting that she is willing to act in such a disrespectful manner and the, when caught, disavow her behavior.  Protest is a great part of our country’s history.  Disrespectful, offensive behavior in front of memorials is deplorable.  Not only did Lindsey Stone disrespect a memorial she chose the one memorial dedicated to those brave men and women who were not identified and in turn whose own families have not had a chance to properly mourn their loved ones.  The Tomb of the Unknowns is a sacred memorial for those who have paid the ultimate price.  It is offensive for Ms. Stone to equate her behavior to that of “smoking next to a non smoking sign.”  She should be ashamed and her parents and friends should be ashamed.

Let her take a trip to afghanistan and see what these Men and Women do daily then force her to spend a several hours volunteering at a va hospital taking care of wounded warriors and then maybe make her attend under supervision the funeral for one of our fallen, this female person disgust me more than I can describe,

Strip her of citizenship and deport her. She deserves nothing less.
