This soldier is obviously not a fan of Hillary. This picture is going viral.
Hillary Clinton recently drew scrutiny for a claim that resurfaced in a New Hampshire breakfast on Tuesday that she once tried to join the Marines.
The dubious claim, which even implicitly accused the Marines of sexism, brings to mind another case of military optics that might not have worked out the way Mrs. Clinton wanted it: A photo of her taken while shaking the hand of a soldier.
The Gateway Pundit explained nearly a decade ago:
This US soldier flashed the “coercion” sign with his left hand when he met Senator Clinton while serving in Iraq in 2003.
The picture shows that this soldier has been through Survival School and learned his lessons well. He’s giving the sign of “coercion” with his left hand. These hand signs are taught in survival school to be used by POW’s as a method of posing messages back to our intelligence services who may view the photo or video. This guy was obviously being coerced into shaking hands with Hillary Clinton.
It also turns out people actually went through the trouble to find out who the soldier is (although his name is withheld for privacy reasons), and he had further clarified what had happened in a singles ad:
“The picture of me and Hillary Clinton was taken when she came to visit Iraq. I was actually ordered to shake her hand, and I never figured that my friends would circulate it all over the net. I AM NOT a Hillary fan by any stretch.”
