Private First Class Tariqka Sheffey ignited an online firestorm when she posted the following message on her Instagram account:

“This is me laying back in my car hiding so I don’t have to salute the 1700 flag. KEEP ALL YOUR ‘THAT’S SO DISRESPECTFUL/ HOW RUDE/ ETC.” COMMENTS TO YOURSELF cuz, right now, IDGAFFFFF.”

Sheffey posted a picture of herself laying back dressed in her military uniform.

The response was deafening from the media and the public. Many called for a dishonorable discharge of Sheffey, who was a member of the 59th Quartermaster Company, 43rd Sustainment Brigade at Fort Carson in Colorado.

According to the Washington Times, Sheffey has been punished for her disrespect for Old Glory while wearing a military univorm, though her punishment has been kept a secret.

Dani Johnson, Fort Carson’s director of media relations released a statement saying,

“The investigation into the social- media incident concerning a Fort Carson soldier is complete. The unit commander addressed the situation consistent with his authority. It is not the policy of the United States Army to disclose the results of administrative actions.”

The American Flag was created after the colonists seceded from the Kingdom of Britain, though it did not have the design that it has today. Back then, the flag resembled that of Britain’s, though it was still a representation of the independence of the United States.

Since then, the flag has gone through twenty eight designs. The current American flag, uses fifty stars to represent the current number of states within the Union and thirteen stripes to represent the number of colonies during the birth of the country.

Millions of Americans have bled and died for the American Flag and what it represents, and yet there are many instances of the flag being disrespected and even desecrated. According to Western Journalism, the black supremacist group, Black Live Matters attempted the theft of an American Flag in an effort to protest police misconduct.

Black Lives Matter has also created a splinter group called F*k Yo Flag that has not only called the American Flag a symbol of oppression, as Breitbart reports, they are also calling for,

“Open season on killing white people and cops.”

Another group, Occupy Wall Street, also made the news with its demonstrations that involved burning the American Flag.

Though amendments have been proposed in the past to make it a crime to desecrate the American Flag, the bills were never made into law. The irony is, PFC Sheffey, as well as each of the radical groups mentioned above have the right to show disrespect the American Flag because of the First Amendment that allows the Freedom of Speech. It is the rights and freedoms that the flag represents that allows them to be able to disrespect the flag without repercussions.
