Racist Ranting Moonbats Verbally Attacking Uniformed Soldiers in DC
Michael Yon has a copy of a letter to military personnel from the Department of Transportation, warning about incidents in which soldiers in uniform have been verbally assaulted by crazy ranting moonbats while riding the Washington DC Metro.
Dept of Transportation Federal Transit Administration sends:
Recently, there have been local incidents in which military personnel have been verbally assaulted while commuting on the Metro. Uniformed members have been approached by individuals expressing themselves as anti-government, shouting anti-war sentiments, and using racial slurs against minorities.
In one instance, a member was followed onto the platform by an individual who continued to berate her as she exited the metro station. Thus far, these incidents have occurred in the vicinity of the Reagan National Airport and Eisenhower Ave metro stations on the yellow line, however, military members should be vigilant and aware of their surroundings at all times while in mass transit.
Should you be approached by any individuals expressing anti-government/anti-war sentiments, or any other types of direct verbal assault, immediately notify your local police jurisdiction. If riding metro, exit the train at the next stop, distance yourself from the individual, and notify the Metro Transit Police Department. …
Here are a few friendly reminders of personal protective measures that can help you to stay safe:
- If possible, do not commute in uniform (military members)
- Do not display DoD building passes, “hot cards”, or personal identification in open view outside of the workplace
- Do not discuss specifics about your occupation to outside solicitors
- Always try to remain in well lit, well populated train cars if traveling via metro
- Be vigilant at all times!
