JROTC Allows Muslim Recruits to Wear Islamic Garb With Uniforms

The Council on American-Islamic Relations — expansionist Islam’s answer to the ACLU — gleefully announces that the dhimmis running the Department of Defense will allow Muslim students to wear hijabs while participating in JROTC.

In October, the Washington-based Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization wrote to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta after a 14-year-old Muslim student at Ravenwood High School in Brentwood, Tenn., was forced to transfer out of a JROTC class when her commanding officers told her she could not wear hijab while marching in the September homecoming parade.

The cringing response came from Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army Larry Stubblefield:

”I have been asked to respond on behalf of the Secretary of Defense Leon E. Panetta to your October 13, 2011 letter concerning Miss Demin Zawity’s request to wear a religious head covering (hijab) while participating in an Army Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) event at Ravenwood High School.

“Based on your concerns, the Army has reviewed its JROTC uniform policy and will develop appropriate procedures to provide Cadets the opportunity to request the wear of religious head dress, such as the turban and hijab. …

“The Army prides itself in being a diverse organization, comprised of individuals from many faiths and religions. We appreciate you bringing this matter to our attention.”

This devotion to diversity was on full display at Fort Hood, where it got 14 Americans killed. After Nidal Hasan’s easily preventable terrorist shooting spree, Army Chief of Staff George Casey Jr. voiced concern that the embarrassing event could impede diversity initiatives. He can rest assured that under our current leadership, common sense is never placed ahead of multiculti liberal idiocy.

Imagine if the same politically correct idiots had been running the country in the early 1940s. The Department of War would be happily complying with demands from the German American Bund to let recruits wear swastika armbands.

At least in JROTC, non-Muslims aren’t forced to wear hijabs.

  • Then it’s not a “uniform”, is it, now?

    Liberalism is a mental disorder. We must rid our country of these clowns by any means necessary or they will destroy us.

    I wonder if, say, the ChiComs, or Russians, or N. Koreans, would allow someone dressed in a USMC uniform to march in one of their military parades?

    This is what happens when you put a life-long, diehard liberal like Leon Panetta in charge of our country’s military. First, the Marxist-in-Chief put him in charge of the CIA, which is why that agency is now basically useless and full of leaks. It should be no surprise then that Panetta would do the same thing to our armed forces. They are already the laughing stock of the world, being sent off to fight other peoples wars, while handcuffed by “rules of engagement”, which are basically orders to fight, but not hurt anyone. This is the kind of national stupidity Ron Paul would stop.

    This is also the kind of thing that could only happen in a country who’s people have become weak, mindless, sheep with no will of their own. And, while the American people don’t seem to have noticed that they are weak sheep, the rest of the world has been watching VERY closely. All the American people have to do now is simply wait to pay the price.

    Our enemies ARE watching.

    It makes it damned handy to pick out your target,though

    Leon Panetta is a communist along with several other key players in D. C. Once our military is morally destroyed there is nothing left to depend on. Corruption at every level will be complete and the communists will have what they promised years ago, and not one single war waged. The American people are so incredibly stupid they have no idea what happened right before their eyes nor do they care. Gone baby gone.

    This is the same DoD that refuses to allow Christians to display a Cross, either on their person or even on or in a Chapel for fear that anyone might be “offended”.

    I do have to give credit where credit is due; Great plan on the part of our muslim enemies. They do have the one thing we (Westeners) do NOT have, and that is patience. If you can not take us (the Army) head on, then slowly rot us away from within. Once they get hijib approved, they will expanded the requests/demands for more and more “reasonable”, “sensitive” accomidations to Islam. We have no leaders, only the PC careerist. We are screwed. But banning Christianity is ok since, some one might be “offended” by it. Barf

    So if a JROTC or ROTC or OCS or even boot was a member of the church of body mod would they also be allowed to wear their multiple face piercings (despite the safety risk)? How can they stop at just muzzie? They have to be totally inclusive to the other obscure religions.
    Isn’t the point of the uniform uniformity? I really want to be there when a body mod-ette goes to S.E.R.E. This could be entertaining.
    I miss the good ol days when everybody (with a few minor bearded exceptions) wore the uniform the same way (hidden tats, no visible male piercings, female piercings limited to one per ear.) Won’t a hijab present issues with visibility when worn under Kevlar? How do you fit a chute (+ combat ruck and weapons) properly with a burqua?
    When someone of the nudist faith enters service will uniforms be abandoned all together? Could make mixed crews on subs interesting.

  • Path

    Sadly, Jeff is right. Also, apparently the US military no longer understands the meaning of “uniform”.

  • LarryG

    They should just eliminate the program and replace it it with a Junior Hamas Reserve Terrorist Training Corps. That would make all of the spineless dhimmis happy. Allahu akbar!
