Skills, Inc Targets Marine Corps Vet
by Shari Dovale
Skills Inc. does not like their employees to speak out about Liberty and Freedom. At least that seems to be what they are saying to Edward Krumpe.
Krumpe is a lead inspector at the Washington-based aerospace parts supplier, and has worked for the company for 5 and a half years. They currently employ about 800 people.
Shortly after arriving for his shift on Friday, Krumpe was called into the Human Resources department by his supervisor, Mark Bentley, to meet with the company CEO, Todd Dunnington.
The problem stemmed from Krumpe’s choice of T-shirt. Skills Inc does not have a dress code against T-shirts, quite the opposite. It is standard attire for the workers. After he explained the meaning of the phrase “Molon Labe” to the pair, Dunnington told Krumpe that the message was offensive.
Krumpe tried to ask about a coworker’s shirt that advertised a picture of ‘Che Guevara‘ being offensive, yet Dunnington dismissed that issue as not relevant to the discussion. Apparently, it is okay with Skills Inc to depict Fidel Castro’s chief executioner, but supporting the US Constitution, and the second amendment, is not.
He ordered Krumpe to change his shirt to a very hot sweatshirt. Please note that this was not the first time Krumpe had worn this very shirt to work. It had been a regular part of his wardrobe for over a year. Yet, it suddenly became offensive. Based on the high levels of heat on the factory floor, Krumpe refused to wear the sweatshirt.
The two then explained to Krumpe that there were other workers that felt threatened by his attire, and they did not feel safe around him.
Threatened by a piece of cloth? Really? First it is chalk, and now it is cloth.
But the attacks did not stop there. Dunnington next took issue with Edward’s truck. It was displaying the Finicum Brand and the US Flag, inverted. Krumpe was told that he was disrespecting the veterans by flying the flag upside-down, yet Krumpe is a veteran, having served in the United States Marine Corps.
Mr. Krumpe insists that he is correct, as it states in the US Flag Code, Section 8, “The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.”
The government is not protecting the people, as they are mandated to do. Instead they are silencing them in the most extreme ways, like our friend, LaVoy Finicum. I call that extreme danger.
“The CEO tells me just to go home and ordered me to clean up my truck.” Krumpe tells us.
Dunnington made it very clear to Edward that there is a new set of rules that he must follow, and that is he is not allowed to wear any shirts that are not “plain”. This rule is not being implemented for any other employee, just Krumpe, and his job is on the line if he does not obey.
Left-Wing extremism is on the rise in this country, and they are trying to stomp out anyone that upholds the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights, all in the name of ‘Diversity’ and Safe-Spaces. This extremism is swallowing our Freedom and Liberty.
Skills Inc has targeted a United States Marine veteran for honoring his oath. They are attempting to silence his freedom of speech.
Patriots, we cannot allow the country to be lost. LaVoy gave his life for freedom. Edward Krumpe is threatened with losing his livelihood. His family’s welfare is at stake.
We must stand up and be counted. Do not allow the Left-Wing Hate groups, the Socialist-Progressive-Liberal-Communists, to silence our voices.
We The People Can Do This!
I was sent the following message, from Jeanette Finicum, widow of LaVoy:
“Fellow Americans the “powers that be” are gathering together to squash those of us who are standing with a voice. LaVoy gave his life willingly for liberty. He stood up and is an example to us all, his sacrifice is inspiring others to do the same in their own sphere and in their own way. People are taking courage and standing for the return of our liberties. Please stand up and help Eddie Krumpe as his employer is trying to squash his voice, his right to express his feelings by threatening his employment. Let’s all stand together and be a voice for those who are beginning to be targeted. We can do this! Stand with faith, Stand with Courage, We the People can do this!”
