USS Enterprise Video Scandal

I for one am ashamed by the Department of the Navy for firing the Commander.  After watching the video that Commander Honors put out a number of years ago I find it to be just skit or short film. It was a parity to something funny. Sure it touched on subjects that are sensitive to some... But that is what a parity does. I do not think the film was hurtful or disrespectful to anyone in my opinion.... What ever happened to the term “Sticks and stone can break my bones, but words can never hurt me”.


I think the men and women of the Armed Services need a break from the hard work they do everyday and the XO did just that.... Firing the Commander reminds me of that scene from “Good Morning Vietnam” with Robin Williams. The scene where the CIA is redacting all of the important items from the news reports..... This is just political correctness run amuck... People are too easily offended by nothing... The dumbest thing can mean the end of your career. Let's not take life so seriously. Let's go back to the days of common sense and do away with the sin of political correctness. Give the Commander his job back...

Watch the video and make your own conclusions...

Danny, I could not agree with you more!!  It is a travesty.  The man has to my understanding an exemplary service record.  Political Correctness run amok.  This is the military!!! What next ?? Are they going to ask Drill Sergeants not to yell??? Because it will hurt someones feelings??

Anyway my 2 Cents.

All the best in 2011!!

Tough situation for sure.... Were parts of this gross and sophmoric? Absolutely. But was it so bad that it warranted ruining an otherwise exemplary career? No. Maybe it warranted some sort of action because I do believe as an XO he should operate at a higher standard than a 10th grade boy. But I don't think the guy should have lost his job!

These are Sailors for God's sake!! They are supposed to do this stuff. Mykael #1 has it right. Political Correctness running buck wild and frankly I've had about enough!

All I have to say is Way To Go Jerks. Now, we're down one Aircraft Carrier Captain. This sailors career was over the minute he  was relieved of his duty and for what? Did he disobey a direct order? Show cowardice under fire? Strike an enlisted man? Steal or Murder? No, he made a vid that offended some delicate soul who I would not want next to me in a fire fight.
