Denounce Erick Erickson's Anti-Women Comments

Fox News talking head Erick Erickson just took the War on Women to another level. He actually claimed that working women are “tearing us apart” and agreed that the growing number of women in the workforce is “hurting our children”.

It’s time to tell these radicals enough is enough. Join the DSCC and show Erick Erickson you won’t let the GOP’s War on Women go unchecked.

I’m standing against Erick Erickson’s shameful comments on women. His backward views have no place on American airwaves.

      To Whom It May Concern,

      I was the immediate supervisor for SPC Annzala Pitt at C.Co 225 BSB. In the time that SPC Pitt was part of my squad she encountered numerous difficulties which I believe were entirely due to being mistreated by her senior leadership. When SPC Pitt arrived at 225 BSB she had a medical situation that required attention prior to her deployment to Iraq. When she voiced her concerns to 1LT Riglick not only were her concerns dismissed but her private health information was erroneously released to multiple parties. SPC Pitt filed a complaint for the HIPPA violation against the offending party, 1LT Riglick. A few months later 1LT Riglick was assigned to C.Co as our Platoon Leader. This is undoubtedly the situation that caused SPC Pitt to be labeled as a problem soldier by C.Co leadership. SPC Pitt was not protected from reprisal and was treated badly for the duration of her time with C.Co 225 BSB.

      The result of filing her HIPPA complaint against 1LT Riglick was having a stigma placed on her by the very leadership that was supposed to be protecting her. She endured rumors, attacks on her character, and even attempts at discrediting her intellectual capacities. She was even accused of having inappropriate relationships with multiple senior Non-Commissioned Officers by our Platoon Leader 1LT Riglick. SPC Pitt continuously sought only to do her job as a mental health specialist and as her first line supervisor I pushed for her to be moved from the company to the Troop Medical Clinic. When SPC Pitt was sent to the Troop Medical Clinic to preform her duties as a mental health specialist C.Co leadership made sure to let the incoming social worker know what their impression of her was. SPC Pitt then worked with Major Ball, who had already been told she was a problem soldier, and was subsequently treated horribly to include having to undergo a mental health evaluation without provocation.

      SPC Pitt requested on numerous occasions to be moved from C.Co 225 BSB to another company, battalion, or division to get out from underneath the stigma placed on her. These requests were heard by our Company Commander, 1SG, Platoon Leader, Platoon Sergeant, Command Sergeant Major, and even Division Command team but nothing was done. Instead of helping the soldier 1LT Riglick and Major Ball ordered me to counsel her for their perceived insubordination. When I disagreed with these orders it was made clear that my military career was also in jeopardy. I was ordered by 1LT Riglick to counsel SPC Pitt for not properly using her chain of command to which, I informed the command that she had done exactly what procedures are outlined. The result of my not counseling her for this was to have my MEDPROS status changed to non-deployable by 1LT Riglick. This retaliation against me for defending SPC Pitt would have ended my career if I had not already been found deployable and fit for duty by the Medical Review Board in 2008.

      Despite her outburst which finally concluded her time in C.Co I would still recommend that she be retained by the United States Army. SPC Pitt endured being mistreated for months and still maintained a positive attitude. Her intellectual prowess combined with her willingness to work make her a viable asset. I believe that if SPC Pitt had been able to move to another command away from the toxic leadership of C.Co 225 BSB her military career would have flourished.

      I am contacting you to receive your assistance in eradicating US Army toxic leaders. I need your assistance in educating all commanders and SJA's, Judges about this matter. Many leaders hide or destroy the fact they were abusive towards a soldier and just have them court martialed. Many soldiers that are court martialed requested assistance via IG and other leaders but it was not received.

      My case is currently in the appeals process; however I need your support in having my case re-heard or complelty dismissed. Please read my petiton on CHANGE.ORG (Eradicate US Army Toxic Leadership) . If you wish to speak to me directly please call 803-477-7687.

      I've started the petition "Barack Obama and Aaron Schock and U.S. Senate: Eradicate US Army Toxic Leadership" and need your help to get it off the ground. Will you take 30 seconds to sign it right now? Here's the link:

      Well Erik Erickson needs to have his so called, "Facts" straightened.

      To Erik you are actually incorrect about the "natural world." In the whales, Dolphins, lions, Elephants etc etc. . ., it is a Female geared society. The females are the ones who care for the young, the hunting, the killing most especially bringing home the food. The only thing the male side of the species does is protect the pod, band, herd, etc .. .from predators.

      Shall we move on to the insect world?

      Don't really hear from the male side of the species in the animal kingdom saying how unfair it is for females to be in the dominant role, now do you?

      If anyone has their panties in tight wad it is you. There is nothing wrong with women bringing home the bacon as the old expression goes. There have been a lot of positive changes that have helped society benefit and move things along.

      So do society a favor shut up. We do not need a male misogynistic spewing the most uneducated comments.
