Interesting exchange with a relatively recently retired O-5 over on my Facebook page. With just a few posts, he managed to explain that he doesn't support a) the First Amendment when it comes to shirts advocating for Constitutional rights in public school, b) the Fourth Amendment right not to be searched without a warrant, c) the Fifth Amendment right not to incriminate yourself, and d) the Sixth Amendment right to a jury.
And in his view, my defense of the Constitution is apparently a sign of mental illness so glaring that he claims to have contacted the Veterans Administration on my behalf and claims he was told by somebody there that my "tirade" in support of constitutional rights raised many flags of serious mental health issues. He then provided her email address and invited me to contact her. So, I've reproduced my "tirade" here.
This theme that those who support the Constitution, and who criticize those in public service who do not, are mentally ill is one I am familiar with. It's interesting to me how so many fascist unprofessional public servants equate valuing constitutional rights with indication of mental illness.
So, John Tringali, makes his first post here...
Then he defriends me, and turns around and sends me this message:
Then he blocks me. Thanks for the lesson on mental illness, John Tringali.
