Senator John Warner Rebukes General Pace

I have to wonder think hope that Log Cabin Republicans helped get Senator Warner (R-VA) to make this strong statement of support for gays and lesbians serving in the military.

The ranking Republican of the Senate Armed Services Committee sharply rebuked the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Tuesday, taking issue with General Peter Pace’s view that homosexual acts are immoral.

Sen. John Warner (R-Va.), a former Secretary of the Navy, said, “I respectfully but strongly disagree with the chairman’s view that homosexuality is immoral. In keeping with my longstanding respect for the Armed Services committee hearing process, I will decline to comment on the current policy until after such hearings are held.”

The power to schedule hearings rests with the current chairman, Carl Levin (D-Mich.).

But Warner’s comments suggest that he may be willing to revisit U.S. military policy of “don’t ask, don’t tell,” which was crafted under President Clinton and backed by Pace. A spokesman said Warner has not discussed his view of the policy in past years.

By the way, why hasn’t Senator Levin come out to support gays in the military after Pace’s comments Monday?  I thought the Democrat Party was the one carrying the gay water for all of us???   (*cough*)

Meantime, General Pace has backtracked.

A statement Tuesday by Gen. Peter Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, on remarks he made in an interview on gays in the military:Yesterday, during a wide-ranging interview with the Chicago Tribune editorial board, I was asked if I think the current policy as codified in U.S. Code, generally referred to as “don’t ask, don’t tell,” should still hold.

People have a wide range of opinions on this sensitive subject.

The important thing to remember is that we have a policy in effect, and the Department of Defense has a statutory responsibility to implement that policy.

I made two points in support of the policy during the interview. One, “don’t ask, don’t tell” allows individuals to serve this nation; and two, it does not make a judgment about the morality of individual acts.

In expressing my support for the current policy, I also offered some personal opinions about moral conduct. I should have focused more on my support of the policy and less on my personal moral views.

While I strongly disagree with Pace’s comments and his assessment of homosexual acts (as he puts it), I do dread the thought police coming after him to the point that the message in America these days is that you cannot express your personal opinion unless it is shared by those in the media and the liberal elite.

  1. I don’t get this, GP:

    “I do dread the thought police coming after him to the point that the message in America these days is that you cannot express your personal opinion unless it is shared by those in the media and the liberal elite.”

    This man is the joint chiefs of staff. He’s not Mr. Pace, our neighbor down to the street who wants to let us know he doesn’t like homosexuality. His job is to represent the military and the voice of the military. His job is not to express his personal opinion. There are many soldiers who oppose the Iraq war, but if they went to the press and bitterly complained about this war being “immoral” and how their beliefs tell them that the war is wrong, they’d be in some trouble.

    If Mr. Pace wants to express his PERSONAL views, then he can always leave his job and go back into civilian life.

  2. The next president of the U.S. will end DADT, regardless of whether that prez is a Republican or a Democrat. The Cabins will have no role in it.

  3. “I do dread the thought police coming after him to the point that the message in America these days is that you cannot express your personal opinion unless it is shared by those in the media and the liberal elite.”

    I would have to agree with you on that point. It is the same with the African-American community. They will come after you in a second if you so much as question their integrity. It is so politically incorrect these days to even mention the genetic studies that were calmly presented by Mr. David Duke during his campaign. Apparently, unless you follow the party line of the Elitest Left Gay Lifestylers, you can’t present the science. Even Andrew Sullivan caught all kinds of hell for even talking about the relationship between race and IQ.

    And I thought the Dimocrats were all about free speech. Here we go again with another round of bashing by the liberal media. General Pace has served our country for a damn long time, and he has every right to hold his religious beliefs whether his faith construes gays as demonic or Blacks as decendents from the tainted tribe of Ishmael. Last time I checked, there was supposed to be freedom of religion in the USA.

  5. Someday people are going to look back at the no gays in the military rules and just shake their heads in disbelief.

    Like the majority of the civilized world does now. Its time that our shoulders know that gays are fighting next to them at this very moment.

    Our most precious gay citizens who are fighting in the military deserve to not be forced into a closet imposed on them by an ignorant military rule.

  6. The larger point of muzzling people from expressing their views is appalling. And counter productive. We’ve reached a point in our country where educated people can’t express an opinion on a controversial matter, even if they are wrong. We’d make more progress as a country if we allowed all sides to express themselves, the right arguments will out eventually. Those that are bigoted, prejudiced or just plain wrong eventually will lose support of the masses. Everytime I see a white seperatist group of 45, march and display swasticas, it’s a reminder of what hate is supressed by some. If you didn’ t let em march, God knows they might duplicate Oklahoma City. It doesn’t surprise me that a 60 year old General in the Military thinks homosexuality is immoral. There are probably 200 million people in the USA who agree with him. This gives us a chance to shine a bright light on him and his comment and change some peoples minds. When you muzzle racists, sexists, bigots, or prejudiced people, they don’t go away, they just simmer. It’ll surface then when someones drunk, or high like Mel Gibson. Or the two guys who murdered Matthew Shepherd.

    All of this political correctness just strikes me as so obviously absurd I have a hard time viewing these peole as competent thinkers

  9. I don’t think Pace was talking about homosexuals in general. I believe he was refering to himself. Maybe he’s gay and trying to justify his feelings as imoral, therefore supressing him.

    Look, I would not be surprised for one second that he’s gay.

  10. Great post GP. I did a post about it too, but it was just long winded and not as precise as yours.

    DonPato, If you meant “Ignorant Civilian Rule” instead of “ignorant military rule”, I think that’d make more sense.

  11. […] More than a few bloggers (here, here, here, here and here just to name a few of the more prominent ones) are jumping up and down on the Chairman for his remarks that “homosexuality is immoral.” He blamed cited his Christian upbringing as the source of his statement. […]

  12. Bruce, it’s an unfortunate consequence of today’s split in control of govt between two warring, bellicose, no-holds-barred political parties seeking to expand power at every turn that the thought police would scurry to the forefront and take a couple of potshots at Pace. I like Pace and think he’s done an excellent job as JCOS and as one of the 1st Marines to do so… I hope that change in tradition continues past Bush 43… maybe even to any of the Bushs 46, 48 or 51.

    Despite what Carl-the-brick-thrower thinks, Pace is entitled to state his personal opinion and he did that exactly. Do gays in general agree with Pace? No. Should we respect his right to express it? Yes. Which seems stramge to have to point out to the GayLeft given their battle cry of late: “I am NOT unpatriotic just because I want us out of Iraq now!”

    Should he have tailored his comments to apply only to the effectiveness of DADTDHDP? Maybe, but I think in light of MattSanchez, Pace was correct to reestablish that he thinks homosexual conduct by military personnel is immoral. So is adultery. So is lying to your superior. So is willingly disobeying a lawful command. It’s called the military code of honor and it is embossed with time-honored, war-tested values.

    Should he crawl before the “outraged” adversaries who willingly undercut and undermine our forces and American resolve to beg forgiveness? Hell no. Frankly, they don’t deserve even a tepid regret.

    I give him credit for saying it as he sees it… and I give credit to former JCOS Chair Shalikashvili (under Clinton) for reversing his support of DADT. I guess, like Robert McNamara, when the dark clouds roll in on the horizon and you think your card might get punched by the BigGuy, truth wills its way out of you. But then, Gen Shalikashvili, like other military elite, play politics far more than they ought to… and his support of DADT can’t be expunged with “get-out-jail-free” crad from the GayLeft or MSM elite in my mind.

    His job isn’t to give his personal opinion. His job is to enforce military policy. That involves enforcing DADT. That does not involve anti-gay comments under the guise of what he grew up with. You don’t get to have “free speech” when you’re being in this kind of military position.

    Mhm – that party sure knows how to protect one of their constituencies. Or are they considering gays the way they do blacks – lockbox votes?

  17. Democratic Rep. Marty Meehan of Massachusetts, author of a Military Readiness Enhancement Act that would repeal the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy, said Tuesday that Pace should recognize the harmful effect the ban is having on the military.

    Comment by Tim — March 14, 2007 @ 9:51 am - March 14, 2007

  18. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she was “disappointed in the moral judgment” voiced by Pace and the military should consider changing policy on allowing gays to serve in its ranks.

    “We need patriotic Americans who exist across the board in our population,” the California Democrat said. “We don’t need a moral judgment from the chairperson of Joint Chiefs.”

    Comment by Tim — March 14, 2007 @ 9:57 am - March 14, 2007

  19. Two points:

    1. Did Rep. Meehan ever serve in the armed forces? Is he even qualified to postulate about any “harmful effects” on a military he is not familiar with?

    2. Is Speaker Pelosi basing her criteria of “patriotism” on what the majority of Americans believe constitutes patriotism, or just her SF constituency? Including the Code Pink protesters camped out on her stately estate. Also – “chairperson?” I believe Gen. Peter Pace is a MAN, unless he made a quick trip to Sweden for an “addidictomy.”

    Over to you.

  25. And while we’re on the subject of the military, this story has flown under the radar from the Middle East: the surge in Baghdad has seriously curbed the killings of US soldiers.

    First the Dems screamed that the surge wouldn’t work.

    We said to give the surge time to work.

    Then the Dems said there should be a “Plan B” in case the surge didn’t work.

    We asked them to provide their ideas for a “Plan B.”

    We’re still waiting.

    In the meantime, the surge is working beautifully.

  26. I’m amused about with all that’s going on in the world, the thing that seems to get the Lefties most energized is carping that somone voiced thier disapproval of them.

    Meanwhile in the real world.. I found some info on Sudden Jihad Syndrome in the US… I think we should be more worried about these folks instead of US politicians.

    March 1994 – Rashid Baz, a Muslim from Lebanon, opened fire on a van containing members of the Lubavitch Hassids in Brooklyn. One was killed.

    February 1997 – Palestinian-born Ali Abu Kamal opened fire on the observation deck of the Empire State Building, killing a tourist and injuring six other people before committing suicide. His daughter, Linda Kamal, said in 2007 that the family is tired of lying and admitted that a letter had been found on her father’s body explaining his Muslim hatred for Israel and America.

    July 2002 – Egyptian-born Hesham Mohammed Hadayet walked into the Israeli Airlines El Al terminal at the Los Angeles airport and began shooting Jews. He killed two and injured another four. He was known to sympathize with al Qaeda.
    September 2002 – Patrick Gott killed one and wounded another in the New Orleans airport. He had entered the terminal with a shotgun and his Koran.

    October 2002 – John Mohammed and Lee Malvo killed 13 people in the Washington, DC area. Both were converts to Islam and had attended a jihad training camp in southwestern Virginia.

    August 2003 – Mohammed Ali Alayed almost totally decapitated his erstwhile Jewish friend, Ariel Sellouk, following Alayed’s getting serious about his Islamic faith. He went to a mosque after killing Sellouk.

    October 2005 – Joel Henry Hinrichs III, a convert to Islam, was an engineering student at Oklahoma University. His student career ended when a bomb he had strapped on himself went off prematurely outside a crowed stadium, killing only himself. Police subsequently cleared explosives from the apartment that Hinrichs had shared with Muslim students from Pakistan.

    April 2006 – Muslim Ayhan Surucu was so angry when his sister started to wear make-up and date men in Berlin, Germany, that he put a gun to her head at a bus stop and killed her. Boys at a nearby school, attended mainly by the children of immigrant Muslim families, cheered and applauded when news of the murder reached them.

    May 2006 – Mohammed Reza Taheri-azar, a University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill student, rented an SUV and drove it through a crowded part of the campus– intentionally trying to hit people and wounding nine. In a series of letters to the student newspaper, he explained that he acted in obedience to Koranic dictates.

    June 2006 – Michael Ford, a Muslim convert, walked into work at a Safeway warehouse in Denver and opened fire on his coworkers, killing one and injuring five. Relatives explained that he was being teased at work because he’s a Muslim and he could not take it anymore.

    July 2006 – Naveed Alzal Haq, a Pakistani, walked into the Jewish Federation Center in downtown Seattle and shot six women– killing one, and wounding five( one of whom was pregnant). He stated matter-of-factly: “I am a Muslim American angry at Israel.”

    August 2006 – Omeed Aziz Popal, a Muslim Afghan refugee, used his SUV as a weapon and ran down at least 14 people and a bicyclist in the San Francisco Bay area. He was targeting Jewish neighborhoods to terrorize.

    January 2007 – A 22-year-old Muslim, Ismail Yassin Mohamed, stole a car in Minneapolis and rammed it into other cars before stealing a van and doing the same, injuring several drivers and pedestrians at crosswalks and on sidewalks before police caught up with him. Mohamed called himself a “terrorist.”

    February 2007 – Ibrihim Ahmed, a Nashville cab driver and Muslim, was enraged that two passengers did not agree with him about Islam. When they got out of the cab, he tried to run them down, striking one in a parking lot.

    February 2007 – Sulejman Talovic, a Bosnian Muslim immigrant, went to a Salt Lake City mosque on a Friday night. Then he went to one of only two malls in the state which prohibits civilian carrying of concealed weapons. He killed five before an off-duty cop (not subject to ban) used a concealed firearm stopped his murder spree.

As a long-standing Polipundit reader, and occasioanl comment-writer, I found the underlying-level of hate and bigotry of their other commenteers the more objectional than the opinions of the site’s posters. Of late, it reached a level of hysterical-hate that I just doing visit regularily…and mostly stopped commentimng since I grew tired of my comments being twisted, ignored, or shat-upon-from-a-great-height for being from a single, male, gay perspective.

    No, Tim and you know better. Gen Pace was speaking about homosexuals in the military service –he was correctly, I think, comparing homosexual conduct with adultery given current military code.

    Nice try at the slide toward the endzone, but the ball isn’t there yet. As much as I wish it were so, Dick Cheney isn’t CIC.

  32. The point I’m trying to make, Tim, which you keep missing as if it were a WMD in Iraq, is that the DNC – the supposed “savior party” of the discerning homosexual – is virtually quiet on General Pace’s comments with the exception of Meehan and Pelosi.

    Openly-gay Rep. Barney Frank is strangely silent – the same as he was during the Foley situation.

    Where are all the black Democratic congressmen? Oh, I forgot – they are the least tolerant of all the DNC when it comes to gays because of the power of the Baptist pulpit.

    Where are the women in Congress? Nope – no comment here.

    If you have to make a point about selective outrage, then this would be a good place to start. Where are your fellow Dhimmicrats?

    I rest my case.

    Umm, Andie, how did YOU feel? What’s it like in the closet with just a dim light bulb? No pun intended.

  35. Europe is on fire:

    Ondiep, a working class neighbourhood in the Dutch town of Utrecht, is in turmoil. After the death last Sunday of Rinie Mulder, a 54-year old indigenous Dutchman who was shot by a police officer, non-immigrant citizens went on a rampage, burning cars, looting shops and arsoning a community centre in “inverted Paris style riots.” According to our sources the police officer who killed Mulder is a woman of Moroccan origin.

    The Ondiep residents have been complaining for months about harassment and intimidation by immigrant youths of Moroccan origin. The Dutch mainstream media do not go into much detail about what is going on. Most of them do not mention the ethnicity of the victim and the police officer, though the riots clearly have an ethnic nature.

    Apparently Mulder intervened when Muslim youths harassed a pregnant native Dutch woman. He was able to grab the knife of one of the youths. When the police arrived Mulder was shot because he had raised the knife. Witnesses say Mulder was indicating to the police that he had called for them.

    Locals claim the police has failed to protect them for years. They say the authorities are afraid of the immigrants and tolerate their criminal behaviour. After the death of Mulder the indigenous Dutch decided they had had enough and started riots which went on for two continuous nights. The police made 130 arrests: 60 of them are Ondiep residents. According to the mainstream media the others are mainly “football hooligans” from other parts of the country. Annie Brouwer-Korf, the Socialist mayor of Utrecht, has ordered Ondiep to be sealed off from the rest of town to keep non-residents out. She expressed some sympathy for the frustrated Ondiep residents. “I understand that residents are sometimes upset about the nuisance around their own house and neighbourhood. That does you no good whatsoever.”

  36. Islamicization of Antwerp
    TODAY’S COLUMNIST
    By Paul Belien
    March 14, 2007

    The decisive battle against Islamic extremists will not be fought in Iraq, but in Europe. It is not in Baghdad but in cities like Antwerp, Belgium, where the future of the West will be decided.

    I recently met Marij Uijt den Bogaard, a 49-year-old woman who deserves America’s support at least as much as Iraqi President Jalal Talabani and Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki.

    Ms. Uijt den Bogaard was an Antwerp civil servant in the 1990s, who spent many years working in the immigrant neighborhoods of Antwerp. There she noticed how radical Islamists began to take over. “They work according to a well-defined plan,” she says.

    One of the things Ms. Uijt den Bogaard used to do for the immigrants was to assist them with their administrative paperwork. Quite a few of them came to trust her.

    About three years ago, young men dressed in black moved into the neighborhoods. They had been trained in Saudi Arabia and Jordan and adhere to Salafism, a radical version of Islam. They set up youth organizations, which gradually took over the local mosques. “The Salafists know how to debate and they know the Qur’an by heart, while the elderly running the mosques do not,” she said They also have money. “One of them told me that he gets Saudi funds.” Because they are eloquent, the radicals soon became the official spokesmen of the Muslim community, also in dealing with the city authorities. Ms. Uijt den Bogaard witnessed how the latter gave in to Salafist demands, such as the demand for separate swimming hours for Muslim women in the municipal pools.

    Worried immigrants told Ms. Uijt den Bogaard what was happening. On the basis of their accounts and her own experiences she wrote (confidential) reports for the city authorities about the growing radicalization. This brought her into conflict, both with the Islamists and her bosses in the city.

    The city warned her that her reports were unacceptable, that they read like “Vlaams Belang tracts” (the Vlaams Belang is Antwerp’s anti-immigrant party) and that she had to “change her attitude.” The Islamists sensed that she disapproved of them. They might also have been informed, because there are Muslims working in the city administration. One day, when she was accompanied by her superior, she was attacked by a Muslim youth. Her superior refused to interfere. When she questioned him afterward he said that all the animosity toward her was her own fault.

    In the end she was fired. She is unemployed at the moment and gets turned away whenever she applies for another job as a civil servant. Last week, she learned that city authorities have given the job of integration officer, whose task it is to supervise 25 Antwerp mosques, to one of the radical Salafists. Meanwhile, the latter have threatened her with reprisals if she continues to speak out. …

  37. Did you notice in that last article… the woman goes to her socialst leftist govt about the dangers she’s seeing , and they dont want to hear it. It goes against thier cult of Multi-culturalism. It makes her a bigot a racist, a islamophobe.

    You hear the same stuff from the Leftists here on this board. See how they causually wave thier hand.. “poo poo you’re paranoid. nothing to see here. you are ignorant”

    M-Matt: It always amazes me how Anderson Cooper can fly under the gaydar, so to speak. This guy makes Sanchez look positively butch by comparison. Open Andy’s mouth and a purse falls out (Prada, of course).

    The GayLeftBorg is always threatening to “out” Shepard Smith of Fox News. Wonder what they’d do if we tried that with Anderson Cooper.

  39. To get back on topic: Warner and Simpson (both Republicans) have either rebuked General Pace’s comments or supported gays in the military.

    Unfortunately, Hillary and Obama are strangely silent on both issues.

    So much for your support in the DNC. I guess that’s what they think of the GayLeftBorg. Two words: “lockbox votes.”

    Really? I thought Shar’ia fit right in line with Conservative/Republican thinking. Islamic thought and Republican thought seem to have a lot in common. Republicans fall all over themselves instituting Christian versions of Sharia law all the time. We don’t need to be protected from Muslims/Islam. We need to be protected from the oppressors in our midst.

  41. Elais: You know nothing about what Conservatives believe.. Your little attempt to link it with Islam shows that. Go away ignorant fool
