Ummm, the OP is misleading as from what I originally heard in the news AND
from the article linked, it was NOT sore losers that got this guy in trouble, he did it to himself and he got in trouble himself with what he did. It looks to me like there was no nasty emails or blogs or anything UNTIL the dude had been suspended. I think the nasty emails and blogs and all are cruel, mean and stupid, but I also think it is wrong to post a thread making it look like people who did NOT vote for Barack got this guy in trouble, because that is not true.
|Representatives from the group did not return calls from CNN. But bandleader Mike Engle told the Cleveland Plain Dealer that Coleman was suspended because he ignored military protocol.
"We had gone over and over time and again with everyone in the band that this was a military parade," Engle told the newspaper. "Protocol and proper decorum had to be followed at all times. Unfortunately, John chose to ignore that."
Coleman had been suspended from the band for six months.
Then others come along, read the link and still blame this on "sore losers"
I don't think that is right.
I think we can all agree that there is much hate out there, much cruel, heartless and disgusting stuff on the internet and it is written by icky people that are conservatives and liberals.
FTR, I think it is wrong that he was suspended but he broke their rules
