We reported last week that insane nutjob and total racist asshole Lt. Col. Terrance Lakin was facing court martial for refusing to obey orders issued by Barack Obama. You know, because Obama’s a dirty Kenyan Negro Muslim interloper trying to bring the country down.
Wait! He’s not! But Lakin thinks he is. So Lakin didn’t follow orders, and now he’s been charged.
Good. Here’s the breakdown, via TPM:
Lakin was charged Thursday “with one specification of a violation of Article 87, Missing Movement and four specifications of a violation of Article 92 (three specifications of Failure to Obey a Lawful Order, and one Specification of Dereliction of Duty),” said Chuck Dasey, spokesman at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, where Lakin is assigned.
The court martial is likely to raise the prominence of what is already a cause célèbre among Birther adherents.
Late last month, Lakin released a YouTube video in which he explained that he would not report for a second tour in Afghanistan until Obama proves he is a citizen. A couple of weeks later, the Army announced he was under investigation.
Of course, Lakin thinks he’s a hero, and released this statement through another group of racist assholes.
I invited my court martial, and today I stand ready to answer these charges. I was prepared to deploy if only the President would authorize the release of the proof of his eligibility. He refused, and now the court will determine the issue, and my fate. The constitution matters. The truth matters,” he said.
Here’s a truth that matters: You’re going to do time for failure to obey lawful orders, Lt. Col. Lakin! Yes, you’re going in for all day, and Barack Obama’s still going to be president. Congratulations on choosing to stand up for a movement that’s been proved a) wrong, and b) nuts.
