US military allows members of neo-Nazi groups to remain in service

Defense officials informed a House subcommittee that being a member of a neo-Nazi or a White supremacist group would not lead to the dismissal of a person from service. Representatives from the Naval Criminal Investigative Service and the Army’s Criminal Investigation Division attempted to highlight the differences between membership and active participation while justifying their stance.

The 1st Amendment allows freedom of expression which includes freedom of thought. The government cannot ban people from having ideas...even stupid ones. If someone meets all the requirements for military service and serves honorably then they can have whatever crazy idea they want to have. Mind you if they actually do something that interferes with a Unit's ability to function properly or interrupts military readiness then that individual can be reassigned or perhaps even discharged if they violate military law.

I want to know how they are defining "nazi". Because if it's simply a Trump supporter or a right winger or someone that is outspoken against "diversity" then they aren't nazis. They're just human.

Not much different than being a part of a Liberal supremacist group if you're not oppressing people and/or hitting them over the head with bike locks because they have different views.

If you can be in the black Nation of Islam and serve in the army because of religious freedom then you should be able to do the same for any of the numerous white nationalist religious groups.

Would have thought it a prerequisite to signing up in the military, then being a terrorist overseas, and murdering poor people, predominantly brown or black, to steal their countries resources, so the rich in the US can get richer....

In the military, they can be members of said groups but cannot actively participate or claim to represent the military.

But not those of transgender?!! Definitely Trump's type of militia; though he'd "never" fight anywhere he would face humiliation by others.
