Weinstein's organization in 2012 called for then-Marine Corps Commandant Gen. James Amos to order an investigation of a photo that showed a group of Marines posed with their sniper rifles in front of a blue flag with white Nazi "SS" runes, according to Reuters news organization.

White supremacists have done a thorough job in infiltrating the police and the military.

Small, a decorated veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, said he got the tattoo in 2010, before it was denounced, as a tribute to his fallen friend.

Did he also get a swastika as a symbol of peace, and an eagle holding it because of America?

Sometimes removal of a tattoo is meaningful.  I have an awful tattoo of a Looney Tunes character, which I've kept for years, as a reminder of what "PERMANENT" means.  Now that I have two children, I have a better understanding of what permanent means.  I'm just too cheap to have it removed.

Racist ink is disgusting.

But, if a church can fire gay people, this dude should not have to remove his stupid ink. His racism is the same junk as religious dogma.

If it's styled like the Nazi SS schutzstaffel logo then the guy was an idiot and/or a racist and really doesn't have a defence if he wants to keep his job. And really he should have been drummed out of the military if they knew about it.

Well those are like the top 3 for Looney Tune tattoos so you'll at least get a point or two for a sliver of originality.

They deserve the Jarhead term. I grew up in a military town. The thinkers went Airforce. The bullies went Marines. I've lost a few high school classmates (class of 99) to Afghanistan and Iraq, so I'm not being flippant, but they were... (all but 1) aggressive types. And willfully ignorant.

I actually feel bad for them, they might have been better served by better parents. But, such is life.

That tattoo is huge. I think he might actually be ignorant enough to not get the Nazi connection.

It boggles my mind that someone would join the military of a nation that threw its entire economic might at destroying the regime they love so much.

It boggles me even more that said military would keep him.  The guy's literally sporting a tattoo symbolic of a sworn enemy of the United States.  What clearances was he granted in spite of that??

The Nazis kept up their war effort against the U.S. until the Russians were practically knocking on the door of Hitler's bunker.  Put me and him in the same unit and I just might shoot him because literally branded himself an enemy combatant.

I think there's a distinction worth drawing between white supremacists professing their personal neo-Nazi hate, and dumbasses who don't get that you shouldn't repurpose Nazi symbolism for other shiat even when you think the design looks badass.

This guy is apparently claiming that he is/was the latter--and plausibly, because the symbol was widely used in the USMC at the time he got the tattoo (to represent Scout Sniper).

Not saying this means showing up to work with an SS tat is okay, just saying they should probably handle this a bit differently if he has a swastika or 88 on the other arm.

Fark no I am not a libertarian.

But, if a church can fire people. I'm not sure we have the moral high ground to fire a guy for racist ink.

Why would a 'scout sniper' put a pair of brass knuckles over his 'insignia'?
If you're that close to the enemy I'd think you're a pretty bad sniper.

/ also tattoo is racist af, whether he understood the background or not, but I think he probably did

I agree the ink is racist.
And, my gut, says he's a racist.
But firing someone because they are gay is racist too.
