Outrageous… Woman Who Works With Disabled Adults Flips Off Arlington National Cemetery

A Massachusetts woman who works with disabled adults posted a picture of herself flipping off Arlington National Cemetery.

A photo of a Massachusetts woman, Lindsey Stone, flashing her middle finger at Arlington National Cemetery in October has ignited fury and prompted an online petition to get her fired. An unidentified Facebook user created a page called ‘Fire Lindsey Stone’ on Monday, alerting her employer to the outrageous behavior and garnering support to get the woman sacked for her disrespect.

Now there is a movement to get Lindsey Stone fired.
The Daily Mail reported:

A photo of a Massachusetts woman flashing her middle finger at Arlington National Cemetery has sparked widespread disgust across the web and prompted an online petition to get the woman fired from her job.

Lindsey Stone posted the picture of herself making the obscene gesture at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, next to a sign at the military cemetery that asks for ‘Silence and Respect,’ in October and the snapshot quickly went viral.

Stone issued an apology for the picture on Wednesday, calling her gesture a ‘visual pun’ and saying she now realizes the picture ‘was in incredibly poor taste’ but an unidentified Facebook user has launched an effort to alert her employer to the outrageous behavior and has been gathering support to get the woman ousted from her job for her disrespect…

An unknown Facebook user, who is believed to be a veteran suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, created a page on the social networking site, ‘Fire Lindsey Stone.’

The page, with the stated intent to ‘only accept termination,’ was started on Monday and has quickly garnered over 14,000 Likes by Wednesday morning.

After the massive response, Stone’s employer said in a statement on Tuesday that they were only made aware of the shocking post on November 19.

    What a hate filled, ungrateful piece of trash.

    Just so everyone knows, this woman’s parents ( Who seemed like awfully nice people ) were all over tv news here in the Boston area, decrying and registering their disapproval of what their daughter did. It seemed like in this case at least, “The apple did fall far from the tree”.

  • Sasja

    She works with the disabled? What does she do, empty bed pans? She needs to be fired. The disabled have enough problems without having to deal with this b**tch. Wonder just how she treats those in her care?

  • stuart

    What goes through the mind of people like Lindsey Stone? What do they think they accomplish with their disrespect? Inquiring minds want to know.

    A truce has been reached? Hamas and the MB supposedly agreed to a truce 24 hours ago but were waiting for Billiary to show up? Israel, this truce means nothing. The only reason Hamas wants a truce is because they were losing. Now, with this so-called truce, they will be free to re-arm and more than likely our government will supply the funds if not the armaments.

    Well, it does give Barry another great photo-op and a chance to spew more BS.

  • Bob

    The reality is if you are a liberal, liar and loon in Massachusetts you more than likely can use this as a enhancement for your career.
    Case in point Ted Kennedy is a killer and Elizabeth Warren is a serial liar, yet both got elected to the US Senate from that state.
    This woman needs to do this in the presence of some families that lost loved ones. What a pathetic excuse for a person she is.

    Yet again it takes the foreign media to highlight what is really happening in this supposedly free country. We truly have propaganda organs regurgitating only what the regime wants the masses to know. They are beyond a doubt the heirs of Pravda (Truth) and Izvestiya (News).

  • myohmy

    Why worked with disabled adults when she seems to be filled with hate? Most of her client are probably disabled soldiers. Time to fire that stupid woman.

  • Buzzy

    Betting she gets some plum job with the Obama admin any minute now. This woman is exactly like our President and first lady except the media isn’t protecting her… yet.

    She works with the disabled?

    I have run across several people just like her who “work” at my local Veterans Administration Veterinary Clinic; I can’t call it either a Hospital or Clinic since ObamaTax was passed the level of care has gotten so bad. Yes, Virginia, there are actually people who DESPISE veterans who are given the responsibility of providing care for the vets.

    Most people who work at the VA do care, but the system is so broken there isn’t a lot they can do. Understaffed, undersupplied, overworked, overregulated; that is the norm. Most people who cared at one time either left from all the bureaucratic nonsense or gave up and became a drone.

  • rwginger

    We all need to click on the employers link and suggest they fire her. This is one hateful person. I would not want her being around disabled people.
    Think of what she does to them when no one is watching.

  • Ghost

    it is IMPOSSIBLE! to be there at the Tomb of the Unknowns or anywhere in any National Cemetery (much less Arlington) and NOT be in awe, so, how can…?

    I usually say I can take liberals… with their clothes off- well, there’s an exception to any rule

    this picture should be counter-balanced with any of a million other pictures of Arlington, whaddyathink?

  • Sasja

    In this pic, it appears she’s yelling as well. I shudder to think what filth spewed from her.

    It can be heart-breaking, but volunteering at a VA Hospital, nursing home, is so appreciated by the patients. There are far too many who either have no family or the family has abandoned them. So, please, even a couple of hours a week would truly make a difference for alot of people who feel alone.

  • now that this picture is in the public lindsey stone is qualified to run for public office as a democrat in the great state of massachusetts. i expect she’ll win in a landslide.

  • Willy

    What does this have to do with her job? To go after her and get her fired just seems nasty.

  • MT Geoff

    Ms Stone has embarrassed herself and all who know her. Unless the Arlington trip was directly related to her job, it falls far short of any threshold where we’d accept an employer firing a conservative. Those who lie there were guarding her rights as well as mine; firing her would be a poor form of respect.

  • bg


    she lost her job, evidently extremely sorry for posting this on her
    facebook page allowing others to interpret her actions.. me, i see

    lots of stupid people are posing for pix that are more or less supposed
    to result in depicting the opposite of what signs say, i don’t believe she
    meant any disrespect towards out beloved troops..

    we’re starting to sound more like the IslaMarxists, only we’re picking
    on piddling stuff vs the real issues that are affecting our very future,
    not meaningless crap like this, i mean, isn’t that the progs bag??

    curious?? outraged?? (fitb)?? Bueller?? gah!!


  • CynicalOptimist

    I don’t see how this can be interpreted as anything other than disrespect for our troops. As far as her losing her job, if she was employed as almost anything else other than working with the disabled, I would say she should not; but anybody this disrespectful and uncaring should not have a job that requires compassion and caring. I would not want her anywhere near me or any family member of mine who might be disabled; you have to wonder what she is doing to those she is supposed to be caring for. Maybe she’ll post some more pics on facebook and show us: “Oh, look, I pushed this guy out of his wheelchair. Isn’t that a hoot?”

  • rocketpod23

    I get it. She wasn’t directing it toward fallen troops. She was simply trying to make a comical anti-authority photo. Yes, yes, I get that, but good grief lady! Something inside a person’s head should go off when they are in a place like Arlington that says “Wow! I am in the final resting place of heroes who gave their lives so that I can live free, I’d better show some respect and gratitude.”

    Somehow this person doesn’t feel any of that. She sees it as a great place to take a crude, classless photo. Oh yeah, and of course post it on facebook. Ironically, we live in a free country, where any moron is free to take any ridiculous photo they please. It is just a shame that anyone would find this an appropriate place to make joke.

  • Patty

    Oh, Dear! Glad her finger wasn’t on some button.

    I don’t accept her apology nor should the Veterans families. And for her work with disabled adults.


  • jony101

    in Iran they would have stoned her for such an insult then tie her up in back of a motorcycle and parade her around the city square. They dont tolerate crazy women over there.
    In fairness she looks like she is the one that is disable in the brain.
    I would disown my own daughter if she ever behave in such a manner. No second chances, but if she works for the government she won’t even get a slap on the wrist.

    more in here seem to be overly self righteous,

  • DMG

    It was staged, and was supposed to be ironic, as in a joke. It just happens to be in very, very, poor taste.

  • DMG

    And your point is what? We should be more like Iran?

  • Sasja

    DMG. Our Constitution protects the people (or used to) from a government prohibiting speech. It is entirely different in the private sector. Citizens are calling for her dismissal as well we should. I just heard on the radio, she and the girl she was with, have been put on unpaid leave. She and others like-minded need to learn that there are consequences for bad behavior. Something that has been dismally missing in our society for far too long.

    A “visual pun”????????


    Was she “punning” that she thought it was the Tomb Of The Unknown Finger? I’d luuuuuv to hear her ‘splainin’ exactly WHAT the supposed pun was supposed to be based upon her obviously premeditated actions.

    Then again, probably not. I have paint that I’m planning to watch dry — should be SOOO much more entertaining. More intellectually enlightening, too!

    there is no such animal as privacy anymore..

    fact is, if you’re not hiding under a rock, you have something personal,
    to hide, and rightfully so, or you’ve done something that’s offended the
    “sensitivities” of someone somewhere.. 🙄 get over yourselves, the air
    head meant no disrespect.. but that’s not good enough for some who
    evidently beleive they qualify for sainthood, including the “unconfirmed
    to be vet” who supposedly complained.. newsflash, imho, this is as bogus as that noose on the doorknob at the dorm..

    and while we’re at it, who needs a God,
    never mind trials by press anymore.. 🙁

  • If she does get fired, she’ll probaby end up getting hired somewhere at MSNBC

  • Jad

    I don’t agree that she should be fired for this offensive act unless her job was specifically working with veterans. After all, you can hate this country and its military and be elected President! If her left wing attitudes haven’t interfered with the work that she’s been doing up until now, why fire her? It’s the left wing equivalent of a person being fired for participating in a tea party rally (I know, only one is actually offensive).

    Also, the whole point is moot because chances are high that her boss at the “nonprofit organization” she works for is also a left wing loon who would cheer her actions.

    it just doesn’t fully connect to her brain..

    Earth to critical thinkers..

    left, right,
    Rep, Dem,
    black, white,
    rich, poor, etc,
    has nothing to do with it,

    albeit OFFENSIVE to troop lovers like me,

    it was not only meant to be PRIVATE, but it is what
    she said it was, a “visual pun”.. someone else made
    a mountain out of what was a molehill, and now she
    has lost her job, sorry, but that does not sound like
    America to me.. 🙁


  • Buffalobob

    How is she more disrespectful than Kennedy, Kerry, Murtha, or much of Hollywood, a stupid stunt but it does not reach the level that politicians/celebrities who have have labeled our veterans and service men/women as murderers, rapists and child killers. If you want to be outraged be outraged at the progs. Condemn the so called artist in the actors union and the activists who spit on our brave service men.. Do you remember Jane Fonda? Do you remember Bill Ayers?

    an obama voter for sure

  • paul52

    She’s a typical leftie. She apologized to ‘anyone who was offended’, but no apology for what she actually did. Same old shuffle.

  • paul52

    Wake up, DMG. She got her ‘free speech’… we get to freely respond. Actions tend to have consequences.

  • Theduchessofkitty

    It has been obviously exposed in this case who, in that place where she works with “people with disabilities”, actually has the disability…

  • CommieJuice

    Looks like a few minutes ago they announced that they fired her. Sometimes the good do win.

    The soldier who took up for her was right for what he did, but wrong for how he did it. He made it seem like the only expression of freedom was what she did, not the ones opposing her.

    I can agree that we all are guaranteed the rights of freedom to express ourselves how we see fit, but that freedom isn’t free. There is a moral price that sometimes includes a personal tax for what you say and do.
