Sedition in the ranks: USAF discharges birther who called for Obama’s arrest.UPDATED with more drama and wacky video
The Air Force said Wednesday it is discharging a hero of the so-called birther movement who refused to report to duty in Germany for a few days earlier this month because he doubts President Barack Obama’s citizenship.
Staff Sgt. Daryn Moran expects to be discharged within the next week. Although the 41-year-old Nebraska man refused to report to duty and had called for Obama’s arrest in statements on websites, several other things contributed to his discharge, including his opposition to Obama’s decision to allow gays to serve openly in the military.
Moran, who has served nine years in the Air Force, drew the attention of the birther movement when he shared his views on Obama’s citizenship on websites of groups that believe Obama was not born in the U.S. and therefore is not eligible to serve as president or commander in chief.
“He is currently outprocessing for discharge from the Air Force which was previously approved by his commander on August 4th,” according to a statement from the U.S. Air Forces in Europe. “While we are aware of the comments that appear on various Web sites attributed to Staff Sgt. Moran, officials with United States Air Forces in Europe will not discuss nor characterize those comments.”
Ever wonder what websites he liked to post at?
Moran had written in comments posted on the Blaze that he was “due to get out soon under an administrative and Honorable discharge for a ‘Personality Disorder’, because I told them homosexuality is sin.” But he chalked the discharge up to “basically paperwork” in a letter to a birther website and claimed he was due to report on Thursday and Friday of last week but didn’t show up.
A Glenn Beck fan? I never would’ve guessed.
And as promised, tells what you really think Sarge…
