The Citadel punishes cadet who exposed school’s pending submission to sharia

A cadet at The Citadel said he is being punished with 33 hours of marching after he revealed in a Facebook post that the school was considering allowing an incoming cadet to wear a hijab in uniform.

The cadet, senior political science student Nick Pinelli, said officials at the public military college originally sought to charge him with behavior “unbecoming to a cadet,” a Class I offense that can lead to dismissal under the school’s disciplinary code. Instead, he said the school reduced the charge to “gross poor judgment” and handed him the maximum punishment: 40 “tours,” each consisting of 50 minutes of silent marching with a rifle in a barracks quadrangle. Pinelli, who has also been working as an intern for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, must complete the tours before graduating on May 7.

Pinelli’s April 13 Facebook post led to national media coverage and sparked heated debate among Citadel cadets and alumni about the issue of the hijab, a head covering worn by some Muslim women. The Citadel is considering accepting a Muslim freshman who has asked to be able to wear the head scarf — an exception to the school’s military dress code. No final decision has been made on the issue.

“If I valued liberal ideology, I would go to UC Berkeley,” Pinelli wrote in the post.

Col. Brett Ashworth, a spokesman for The Citadel, declined to comment on whether Pinelli is being punished. “Due to FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act), I can’t discuss individual disciplinary action,” Ashworth wrote in an email.

The college has not announced whether it will allow the incoming cadet to wear a hijab.

Ask them, Will The Citadel submit to sharia and break 175-year uniform rule for one Muslim hijabi?

  1. Alert: it now seems CRYSTAL CLEAR how to respond to Muslim “demands” for inclusion, concessions, privileges, etc. LET US TELL EVERYONE. The old way was (1) grant them as “freedom of religion.” Now CLEARLY (2) we must recognize the demands as part of subversive jihad, A.K.A. insidious incremental infiltration to achieve global caliphate. And knowing this, follow a Zero Tolerance toward accommodations etc., period. For, Islam is NOT, totally a religion–it incorporates sharia. And, TELL the people that because of this, the Demands WILL NOT CEASE UNTIL America is the UISA, United States of America………..Folks, this piece of fact is now so clear, let people comprehend, so the line can be drawn in the sand–well, in the hardening concrete. Agree?…..

  2. She should be told to renounce the koran mohammad and allah then NO reason for hyjib.

    • Here’s one vote to declare Col. Brett Ashworth and all of his Citadel cohorts, who have chosen to “punish” this cadet, TRAITORS to the American Way! FIRE THE BASTARDS!!!!!              

  3. @Barbara Perkinson. I couldn’t agree more, but then, that would be the AMERICAN thing to do, wouldn’t it???

  4. Col. Brett Ashworth, you sir are a traitor to America. You should go work for CAIR.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
