Yeah, this Jesse MacBeth:
For those who have forgotten, he was sentenced to five months in jail in 2007 for falsifying a Department of Veterans Affairs claim and an Army discharge record after a VA whistleblower and military bloggers smoked him out. “Stolen valor” cases of con artists trying to claim credit for military heroism are bad enough. MacBeth belongs in an even crappier crapweasel category: Fraudsters lying about military service in order to denigrate our troops and our country.
Well, apparently he’s back. Or rather, he appears to have never left. These days, fake soldiers never die, they just keep reinventing themselves on social media. You won’t believe what a man with an uncanny resemblance to Jesse MacBeth posted on Memorial Day yesterday to his Facebook page.
Oh, wait. You will. (Hat tip: C.R.)
Same bogus uniform. Same nutball rantings.
“Jeshiem Al-Amin,” is as busy as ever, claiming that he earned his “B.A. in journalism” (from the Brian Williams School of Journalism?)
“Al-Amin,” who is apparently collecting veterans’ benefits worth $2,200 a month, is also writing novels and soliciting GoFundMe donations to build a commune:
I purchased land in GA to build a community. The purpose of this community is to make a independant black and Muslim owned and operated economy and a safe place for blacks and Muslims of all backgrounds to raise and educate their children. On this land we will build homes, stores, farms, schools, medical facilities, etc.
The funds I am raising now are just a starter to build some basic things on the land like a well and clearing the land so it can be farmed and built on. If you share in my vision in building a halal community and seperating from a society that has done nothing but destroy us, then please support us.
I want our people to reclaim what was lost, what was taken from us. The only way I see that we as a people can do this is to separate, unlearn, and rebuild from the ground up. Your donation goes a long way in saving our people.
I am Black and Muslim so the community will be centered around those princeables. The land is located just outside of sandersville.
How about a remote island with no more Internet access for all the faking fakers with Winter Soldier Syndrome?
