Since there must be thousands of military men and women who hold similar views as Mr Sommers, I am wondering why he is getting the rough treatment and, apparently, no others. I am guessing he rubbed a lot of people around him the wrong way. Maybe he spewd his Obama hatred to anyone who came within earshot and a lot of his fellow soldiers complained.
I spent 3 decades in Fortune 500 corporate world. Exessive political talk about hot button issues is not allowed. You say the word "f*gg*ot" or "n*gg*r" and you will be cleaning out your desk the same day. My point is that the military appears to be run nowadays more like a corporate environment with political correctness being practiced.
