Few people know about the story of a Naval Lt. Commander named John Sharpe. Lt. Cmmdr. Sharpe has come into the limelight because he owns and runs a publishing company and also writes from the extremist view point. Sharpe went to the Naval Academy and graduated as an Ensign trained to serve aboard a submarine. In order for him to have the time, ability and opportunity for himself to publish and write he asked the Navy to go into Public Relations. We paid for him to train as a submariner as taxpayers and in order to better his 3rd party interests he decided to pursue another type of Naval career. While pursuing a racially charged agenda in his writing on his time off he was caught selling books and materials at what could be called a 'white power' event at which David Duke was a keynote speaker. He has stated in his writings that Bush was a murderer because Sharpe blames him for 9/11. Through his own contacts and those of others (business partners) he has affiliations or has met PLO leaders and believed terrorists. When relieved of command during the investigation it is rumored Sharpe went to school and received a Masters degree while also being paid full salary. He has now continued his racially charged work.

There is a lot to this story and as everything in life there are two sides to the story. I am including a lot of external links that have a lot more detail than my short introduction and it is important to read them.

The Official NAVY TIMES article on John Sharpe:
John Sharpe in the Navy Times

Lt. Cmdr. John Sharpe Jr., the public affairs officer for the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson, was temporarily relieved of duty and placed under investigation in early March for allegedly violating a rule that forbids all personnel in the U.S. Navy to "participate in any organization that espouses supremacist causes."

SearchLight Magazine:

Perhaps the largest stall belonged to Light in the Darkness (LID) Publications run by J. Forrest Sharpe. LID is an imprint of the IHS Press founded in September 2001 “to bring back into print the classics of last century on the Social Teachings of the Catholic Church”, many of which are distributed in Britain by the International Third Position organisation. Also present was “Patriotic Flags” based in Charleston, whose catalogue includes numerous Nazi standards and neo-Confederate flags dedicated to Nathan Bedford Forrest, first Grand Wizard of the KKK in 1867. The Canadian stall disseminated mountains of reprints of old racial science and eugenic tracts originally published in the 1960s and, as one might expect at such a conclave, other publications bandied about included Stormfront’s European American, the American Free Press edited by former Liberty Lobby luminary Jim Tucker and The Truth At Last, the hoary old antisemitic rag edited by Dr Edward Fields, chiropodist and unabashed white supremacist, who was guest of honour at a dinner staged by the Friends of Oswald Mosley last time he was in London.

reply to post by GTORick

I am an ex-United States Marine Corps Officer (rifle platoon commander) who served honorably in a very unhonorable war (Vietnam) where I was decorated for valor and was subsequently honorably discharged.

My reply is directed to the poster (GTORick) of all this material concerning a certain Naval Cmdr. John Sharpe. Obviously, you have gone to some trouble to gather this alleged information about an officer of the United States Military. My question to you is threefold: 1) who are you? 2) would you be willing to post as much information about your background as is contained in the material you have put up about this military officer who I presume to be a good and honorable officer who is innocent of any wrongdoing until proven guilty in a proper forum in a just manner? 3) for what exact reason(s) did you gather and post this material about Mr. Sharpe?
