The Army wants every swinging dick they can get to fight, well this guy sure puts the dick in swinging dick.  A 'scream at you till you get it done' kind of dad, well screw him.

With patience and actually talking with your kid, you can get any kid to learn.  If not, then you don't know your kid.  One son has always been the type to clean his room and hated sharing a room because his little bro never cleaned.  And after they got their own rooms, it meant we had to work on the younger kid.  It took some time, but he gets his room clean again by Saturday.  Why Saturday, it is the only day he gets for playing video games.  If he has to clean his room on Saturday, he loses playing video game time.  The nice thing is, we don't care what his room looks like the rest of the week.  He is quite creative, and creative minds don't exactly keep the neatest rooms.  He needs a few days of the week to be himself, and we sometimes need to see his floor to make sure there is no bodies.  He isn't the hoarding type either, as he just got rid of a lot of toys to make room for toys that is more of the older boy level.

Any way, this guy needs to take time to know who his daughter is.  She isn't stupid, she just has different priorities than him, which is good.  He seems to have his a little off.

That sign should read: "I have failed to teach my child how to care for her things so now I will humiliate myself on the Internet."

\but he's a "soldier" so we're all like, "Murica, fark yeah!"
\\Guessing we'd react a little different if he had been identified as an "Imam."
\\\"slashies, fark yeah!"

Should have tried a different sign...

Hello, Haley.
Look in your room.
Now back to the driveway.
Now, back to your room.
Now, back, to the driveway.
Sadly, your furniture is not in your room.
But, if you listen to your dad, you will find out all about clean rooms.
Look down. Where did it go?
Who is that? It's the neighborhood bum taking that thing that you like.
... etc :D

Some people thrive in environments different than what you, personally, are used to.

If she's on honor roll and your biggest problem is her room isn't tidy enough, you just might be a total douche.

Children are evil stupid self-destructing egotistical maniacs.

Parents are stupid evil self-important pricks.

She's an honor student and all you care about is that she cleans her room?  You are a moron.

My rules for my kids rooms 1985 - 2000:

I have to be able to close the door.

There will be no smells emanating from their room.

Liquids will be cleaned up, as to not damage their home.

If they wanted a bedtime tuck in, I had to have a path.

Surprisingly, they turned out to be fairly neat people. Treat them like humans, they act like humans.

/yes, former MIL
///didn't feel the need to control everything.

Sounds to me like he was trying to get her to clean it specifically SO he could paint it. Sounds like he got tired of waiting. So he moved all her crap out to get the job done.

Sometimes you just gotta act to get shiat done. Can't wait on a brat forever.
