    This is really disappointing that someone would even think to do something as flip off a sign asking for a respectful silence in a cemetery of Men and Women who died fighting for our country.

      Read my post above yours, and recognize that you are a moral elitist who is trying too hard to be offended. To campaign against somebody for misinterpreting their joke is embarrassing for you, and shows a complete lack of intellect. I’m willing to bet that you are neither a soldier, veteran or the family of a fallen hero.

    Honestly, it’s absolutely ridiculous and evil that she was fired over
    this; she works a respectable job at a nonprofit, which most people
    would NEVER even consider doing, so anyone who says something bad about
    her is a hypocrite who does NOTHING for nonprofits their self. She did
    not disrespect any soldiers in posting this; instead, she made a joke
    mocking the purpose of the sign, which displays something that people
    SHOULD NOT have to be told, and is something that a civilized person
    just NATURALLY does. The ENTIRE point of the joke is that no respectable
    person would actually do this, and she is mocking the fact that a sign
    like that SHOULD be unnecessary, since people shouldn’t loud and
    obnoxious in the FIRST place; she is mocking our loud and obnoxious
    society, and is not in any way mocking fallen soldiers.
    And before
    you pull the whole “you don’t respect military, blah blah blah,” my
    brother was killed by a sniper in Afghanistan on December 8th, 2010, and
    I’m VERY sensitive about people mocking the military and disrespecting
    the dead. She did NEITHER of those things, and the people who fired her,
    and those that are offended by this are people that actively SEEK out
    being offended. They aren’t genuinely offended by things, but, instead,
    they try way too hard to be offended, in order to flaunt their moral
    superiority, holier-than-thou attitude. If anything, moral elitists are
    the ones that disrespect fallen soldiers, who died to protect freedom of
    expression, because of cases like this where the point of the joke was
    misunderstood by immature people.
