Stuart Scheller is a hero and a true patriot.
He spoke truth to power once when he called for the accountability of our ‘leaders’ for the absolute catastrophe that is The U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan.
Scheller continued to voice the truth by coming out a second time and sharply criticizing the decisions made, and even went so far as to instruct people to “follow him and bring the whole f**king system down”.
As you can imagine he has gotten an outpouring of support, but now officials are trying to make him look crazy.
They’re trying to use the guise of his ‘personal safety’ and ‘making sure he’s alright’ in order to intimidate him or attempt to mitigate the damage he can do to their propaganda machine.
Lt. Col. Scheller had this to say:
Marine Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller, recently relieved of command for video criticizing superiors, issued a crazy video today where he said, “You have no idea what I’m capable of doing.” Then says to supporters, “Follow me, and we will bring the whole f*cking system down!” pic.twitter.com/yKncFCN3mL

Lt. Col. Scheller's entire second speech. This is an honorable man. Wish he were in charge of our armed forces and country instead of the 'leadership' that's around today.

Lt. Col. Scheller’s words found their way onto Breitbart:
I want to be clear that I love the Marine Corps. I think, you know, there’s been a fascination with special forces over the last 15 years, special forces people that come in in the middle of the night and they killed the biggest targets that the United States has. And I have much respect. I worked in [Marine Special Operations Command] for a year, but what I’ll say is the conventional Marine on the ground who has to smell burning shit. Who, when I was in Ramadi, I was exposed to it so much that burning shit actually smelt like bacon and eggs. And I grew to enjoy the smell. Those people who are there every day, don’t get to leave the next morning or in the middle of the night, who go outside the wire, get blown up, bring their Marine back and then go back out there the next day. They don’t get the credit they deserve and they deserve accountability. ….
You have no idea what I’m capable of doing. To all the congressmen, senators, every media station, across the globe, to all the rich philanthropists, I appreciate the support and I’m going to need your support. … I don’t need a single dollar. I just need every single person that’s willing to go back outside the wire every single day to wear a blue collar and just go into work every single day and feed their families, those are the people that I need. Follow me and we will bring the whole fucking system down. I am honorable. You can ask any Marine who served with me for 17 years. I dare you to ask them all and find out what I’m made of. We’re just getting started.

He, after this statement, resigned his commission (or was he forced) either way, he had my respect #AfghanistanDisaster pic.twitter.com/T0o76Sv1MS

Lt. Col. Scheller was relieved of duty following requests for accountability from military leadership as reported by CNN:
US Marine Corps Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller has been relieved of command after he posted a video online questioning military leaders’ handling of the situation in Afghanistan, a Marine Corps spokesperson said Friday.
Scheller had posted a video to his Facebook page on Thursday stating: “People are upset because their senior leaders let them down and none of them are raising their hands and accepting accountability or saying, ‘we messed this up.'”
The Marine officer — who served in both Afghanistan and Iraq — said in the video he was “willing to throw it all away” to publicly “demand accountability” from military leadership.
