Lindsay Stone Flipping Off Unknown Soldier Tomb Goes Viral, Sparks Outrage!
Watch the IDIOT here: [link to video.today.msnbc.msn.com]

More here:
Some people just don't get it about the dangers of social media.

When Cape Cod-based nonprofit worker Lindsey Stone visited Arlington National Cemetery last month, she thought it would be funny to snap a picture of herself pretending to shout and flip off the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier -- next to a sign that read: "Silence and Respect."

It didn't turn out so funny when she posted it on her Facebook page.

First the photo went viral, then another Facebook page called "Fire Lindsey Stone" popped up, racking up more than 15,200+ likes in just a day.

Her haters may get their wish. LIFE, the Cape Cod-based nonprofit where she works helping adults with learning disabilities, on Monday suspended her on unpaid leave "pending the results of an internal investigation.

Re: Lindsay Stone Flipping Off Unknown Soldier Tomb Goes Viral, Sparks Outrage!
Of course Lindsey posted the photo on Facebook because she thought her friends would appreciate the joke. Instead she got a lot of outraged comments. So she tried to difuse the situation by posting an explanation.

Whoa whoa whoa... wait. This is just us, being the douchebags that we are, challenging authority in general. Much like the pic posted the night before, of me smoking right next to a no smoking sign. OBVIOUSLY we meant NO disrespect to people that serve or have served our country.

And her friends were like, what do you mean, "us douchebags?!?" (Inching away from Lindsey like she just farted.) Lindsey, Lindsey, Lindsey. SIGH.

I think its funny. Everyone needs to stop being soooo offended over everything. Who cares.

If you care about veterans, how about healthcare and social support after they leave the military? How about not sending people to die in war for profits?

I don't understand the US' military worship, well, actually I do because it's a cornerstone of any fascist nation, but she was flipping off the wrong people. Next time try the elites who can't seem to fill these cemeteries quickly enough the last 70 years.

I like how one woman wrote, "Free speech doesn't mean free of consequences..."

Actually. Yeah. Yeah it does.

The government is literally obligated by law to DEFEND us from any person trying to impose a 'consequence' on us for expressing our views or opinions.

Only if her 'speech' financially or physically hurt someone, was false, or was performed on private property where it was not allowed, could she be penalized in any way by anyone.

As far as I understand how the law is supposed to work.

She is free to do this with out repurcussions, because of the sacrifice of the men she is flipping off. She has learned a very hard lesson about jokes that will be misunderstood. Those involved should forgive her for her ignorance and let her learn it. I am convinced the embarrassment of this will cause her to become a good netizen in future.

I find it humorous that people here defending this woman's "freedom of speech" would fall down in apoplectic fits at the idea of high school kids saying a voluntary organized prayer on school grounds.

Obviously...it's time for us to split up.

Irreconcilable differences.

The girl acted ignorantly and callously. However, she is just a byproduct of the idiocy of the 'if it feels good, do it' assholes that raised her, and a generation like her.

Is what she did the worst thing ever perpetrated on veterans? Or are the lies that lead them to war?

I ask, how many of you are feeding and clothing homeless vets? I donate time, money, and material support to vets. So, is her callous asinine disrespect any worse than America's apathy?
