An Arkansas teen says he was turned down when he tried to join the U.S. Marine Corps because of his “Southern Pride” Confederate flag tattoo.

Anthony Bauswell, 18, of Greenbrier, Ark. shows his pride in his country upbringing with his tattoos, and to show pride in his country he walked into the Conway Marine recruiting center Monday to enlist.

When he showed the recruiter his body art, he was automatically disqualified from service.

    It just goes to show that the liberal leftist can joint up and take offense. So many of the military policy makers are thin skinned and would bleed to death on the way into battle. Oops, Sorry, the preverbal “wouldn’t be caught dead there”

    I wonder if they would take him if it was a gay pride flag. Maybe an ISIS flag would be acceptable. Our county has gone to he’ll. Time for succession round II.
