A Marine master sergeant gives his son his first salute upon commissioning as a second lieutenant in a viral video that has amassed over 3 million views on Tik Tok.

“I’ve watched you grow and mature and become the man that you are today,” Master Sergeant Michael Fisher said to his son. “You have always been respectful by saying, ‘Yes, sir, no sir; yes ma’am, no ma’am.’ A salute is a sign of respect. It is a privilege to render you your first salute.”

Fisher raises his right hand to salute his son while holding back tears.

“It’s even a greater honor to say congratulations, sir, for your commission.”

Fisher is an instructor with the Marine Corps Junior ROTC program and his son is now an officer in the United States Marine Corps.

The video was shared to Twitter and it warmed the hearts of many viewers.

Associated Press reporter James LaPorta tweeted the video with the caption, “Master Sgt. Michael Fisher gives his son his first salute upon commissioning as a second lieutenant. A significant moment if you look at the racial diversity within the officer corps of the U.S. military.”

Many were critical of LaPorta’s caption. Former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer said, “This is a significant moment regardless of anyone’s skin color. This is a beautiful and inspiring moment between a father and his son. Gotta love it.”

Special Forces Operator Tim Kennedy also replied to LaPorta, “You are blinded by racism. Don’t ruin this perfect moment.”

“A great moment, tarnished by reducing it to nothing more than a commentary about race,” another user wrote.

Oregon’s Menstrual Dignity Act has layers of perversion. In July of last year, democratic Governor Kate Brown signed the “Menstrual Dignity Act” which requires schools k-12 to carry and provide free sanitary products to students with instructions on how they are supposed to be used. The installs have begun, according to a video posted be @libsoftiktok.

The Portland school district stated, “starting next year (2022-2022), products will be available in all restrooms (male, female and all-gender) in every PPS building where education occurs.”

Fox News reports that “Menstrual Dignity for Students” tool kits containing instructions and tips for “menstruation-positive” language for families.

Part of the kit reads: “Importantly, [the Menstrual Dignity Act] affirms the right to menstrual dignity for transgender, intersex, nonbinary, and two spirit students by addressing the challenges that some students have managing menstruation while minimizing negative attention that could put them at risk of harm and navigating experiences of gender dysphoria during menstruation.”
