The Marine lance corporal who praised Nazis is getting kicked out of the Corps

Source: Business Insider

The Marine lance corporal who came under investigation in February for racist social media posts is being kicked out of Corps with an "Other Than Honorable" discharge.

Lance Cpl. Mason E. Mead, an infantry assault Marine with 1st Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, is currently in the process of being discharged after he admitted to "advocating supremacist ideology" on May 7, which allowed him to separate from the Corps in lieu of being court-martialed, III Marine Expeditionary Force said in a statement to Task & Purpose.

Mead's discharge disqualifies him from receiving benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Mead had repeatedly praised Nazis and their World War II collaborators on his Twitter account. He also shared images taken while in Marine uniform, such as one of himself wearing dark camouflage face paint in which he wrote, "hello, fellow black men." Another showed high explosives being formed into a Nazi swastika, which he wrote was "epic."

Good. He's a disgrace to the corps and this country.

2. I wonder how long it will take

for him to engage in terrorist activities in general to retaliate. People like him are a few bales short of a full load.

6. This is my concern also.

He will disappear into the white supremacist underground and show up again with blood on his hands and supporters will deny he did anything.

23. He might have trouble with that

I don't think many departments take people who are discharged under anything other than 'Honorable Discharge.'

....they'll not only hire that son of a bitch but will also name him officer of the year the first time he puts someone "in their place."

8. A dishonorable discharge is appropriate.

The NAZI's were determined to destroy the free world. There can be no room for them in the United States Military.

11. No it isn't

He is a shitbird that needs to be removed from the Corps, however without a court martial, Other than Honorable is correct.
Even if he had been court martialed he would received a BCD at most.

I hope he finds himself floundering in trying to get a decent, honorable job.

12. For the most part, Marines in World War II

saw combat in the Pacific theater and had limited assignments in the European theater.
They weren't used in large scale assaults against the German Nazi's, being used heavily in the island combat of the Pacific.
That said, I can't imagine many retired or active duty Marines feeling anything but disgust for a member of the Marines who embraced Nazism and praised their beliefs and symbols.
An other than honorable discharge is the very least that should be done in this case.

20. The article clearly states he will not so feel free to head slam the keyboard a few times but

be assured you are not alone there as I and many others here on the DU I am sure have done something similar as well in the past and will probably do so in the future.

31. His support of fascism spits on the memory the Marines before him who died fighting in WWII.

I am not sure that is accounted for by anything other than hate and stupidity.
