Over the years, Michael “Mikey” Weinstein has demonstrated that he is fairly adept at public relations, though he has stumbled a few times. (For example, he failed to rebut accusations he was “cashing in” on donations last year, and he more recently failed to support his claims of his White House duties.) Contributing to his public relations “victories” have been the public relations shortcomings of his primary foe, the US military. In many cases, the US military has allowed Weinstein to shape the narrative — an opening of which he has taken full advantage.
Weinstein recently claimed that a US Army recruiting poster that said “On a Mission for God and Country” was
- an “unconstitutional disgrace,”
- an “unconstitutional catastrophe,” and
- a “stinking poster of unconstitutional malfeasance.”
