An Air Force veteran was forcibly removed from a military-flag folding ceremony because he said one extremely offensive word. The word? GOD! Unbelievable! 

Retired Senior Master Sergeant Oscar Rodriguez started offering traditional remarks at the ceremony when suddenly several uniformed airmen assaulted him, dragging him out of the room. Now First Liberty Institute lawyers representing Rodriguez are demanding that the U.S. Air Force apologize and punish those responsible or face a federal civil-rights lawsuit, Breitbart reports.

For countless years, service members have given the “flag-folding speech” at military and civic events, including retirement ceremonies. Traditionally, this speech explains the colors, symbols, and history of the flag.

The flag-folding speech also contains several religious references, including, “Let us pray that God will reflect with admiration the willingness of one nation in her attempts to rid the world of tyranny, oppression, and misery. It is this one nation under God that we call, with honor, the United States of America.”

The speech closes with, “God bless our flag. God bless our troops. God bless America.”

Beautiful isn’t it?

Apparently not everyone agrees.

On April 3, 2016, Master Sergeant Charles Roberson was retiring from active duty. Roberson had heard Rodriguez give his stirring rendition of the traditional flag-folding speech and asked Rodriguez if he would give that speech at Roberson’s retirement celebration at Travis Air Force Base where Roberson served in the 749th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron.

According to a demand letter sent by First Liberty Institute on Monday, when the squadron’s commanding officer, Lieutenant Colonel Michael Sovitsky, learned that Rodriguez would give the traditional speech mentioning God, he expressed his opposition and allegedly tried to block it. As Roberson explained in a video interview seen for the first time on Breitbart News, Roberson asked Rodriguez to press forward.

When the event went forward as planned, another video first obtained by Breitbart News — the one of the retirement ceremony itself — shows Rodriguez taking his position and beginning his flag-folding speech. Four uniformed airmen surround him, forcibly seize him, and roughly drag him out of the room, as he continues shouting out his speech over the heads of his assailants.

The service members were not military police and had no lawful authority to arrest or detain any person, especially a private citizen like Rodriguez. Air Force personnel then expelled Rodriguez from the base entirely.

Rodriguez retired from the Air Force in 2013 after 33 years of service to his nation and this is how he gets treated?

This is absolutely disgusting. Liberalism is destroying the very fibers of our great nation.

My guess is that if this incident was about a Muslim praying to Allah, nothing would have happened. But mention God and you get tossed around like a rag-doll.

This is NOT the America we grew up in folks. Very sad indeed…

We thank Senior Master Sergeant Oscar Rodriguez for his service.

God Bless.
