The Marine lance corporal who praised Nazis is getting kicked out of the Corps [View all]

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.
