A Dingbat Senator from New York thinks the most important thing the US Military has to do is cater to the feelings of homosexuals, bisexuals, and transgendereds. General Mattis has this crazy idea that the most important for the US Military is to be able to win wars and protect the country.
KRISTEN GILLIBRAND: Do you believe that allowing LGBT Americans to serve in the military or women in combat is undermining our lethality?
JAMES MATTIS: Frankly, senator, I’ve never cared much about two consenting adults and who they go to bed with.
MATTIS: Senator, my concern is on the readiness of the force to fight and to make certain it’s at the top of its game so when we go up against an enemy, the criteria for everything we do in the military up until that point our young men and women across the line of departure is they will be at their most lethal stance. That’s my obligation, as I move into this job.
One hopes that when the adults are in charge, the military can once again focus on military matters and stop doing idiotic cupid stunts like this.
Army ROTC cadets are complaining on message boards that they were pressured to walk in high heels on Monday for an Arizona State University campus event designed to raise awareness of sexual violence against women.
The Army openly encouraged participating in April’s “Walk A Mile in Her Shoes” events in 2014, but now it appears as though ROTC candidates at ASU were faced with a volunteer event that became mandatory.
“Attendance is mandatory and if we miss it we get a negative counseling and a ‘does not support the battalion sharp/EO mission’ on our CDT OER for getting the branch we want. So I just spent $16 on a pair of high heels that I have to spray paint red later on only to throw them in the trash after about 300 of us embarrass the U.S. Army tomorrow,” one anonymous cadet wrote on the social media sharing website Imgr, IJReview reported Monday.
In the locker room after my workout on Thursday, I overheard once ROTC giving another one grief for a uniform violation; he was wearing US Army shorts to work out in but had paired them with a non-Army T-shirt. It may seem like a trivial thing, but the business of an Army is to kill people and blow sh-t up, and in that high stakes environment, discipline is of the utmost importance.
But some dingbat decided forcing her troops to engage in SJW-inspired idiocy was more important. She’ll probably run for office later as a “veteran.”
