Duncan Hunter Thinks You’re a Sissy

December 17, 2007 at 11:43 am 5 comments

Republican presidential Duncan Hunter said on 60 Minutes on Sunday that you are not man (or woman) enough to serve in the U.S. military. He made the following comments in a 60 Minutes segment focused on gay soldiers who are serving with the support of their commanding officers despite the ridiculous Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy:

“We aren’t the Brits. We’re not the Europeans. We’re not the Swedes,” says Republican presidential candidate Duncan Hunter, who is the ranking member of the House Armed Services Committee.

Hunter argues that gays do not belong in the U.S. military because American troops need to be hardened warriors, unlike soldiers in the 15 NATO countries where gays serve openly.

“The Fallujahs of the world, the Ramadis of the world that require heavy combat and lots of fire-fighting capability – those are the places the Americans go. The other countries tend to go to the so-called peacekeeper zones, where they have fewer fire fights and less contact with the enemy,” Hunter says. “And the European nations show little will to send large contingents of their military people into dangerous places.”

West responds: “I think American troops are very brave and I think British troops are very brave. But we do it in a little bit of probably a quieter way generally, you know? We don’t have to go ‘Huh, huh, huh’ and shave our heads off and shake hands very hard. You can still kill someone without having to do that.”

Thank goodness he doesn’t have a chance in hell of becoming president

    Well, the MSM does feel the need to provide an opposing view. In the case of Duncan, they have chosen an extremist nutcase.

    In the case of Hunter, they’ve chosen someone who is also clearly just stupid. How did we get stuck with people like him in Congress?

    Duncan Hunter is a complete dork. Isn’t it funny that old white guys can’t handle a little diversity. Time to pull your head out of the sand Republicans. The young people of today have grown up being more accepting of people’s differences and that has made us better nation. All the Republicans can do is bitch about gays and abortion. But it’s ok to break this country with a billion dollar a month war based on a bunch of lies. It’s ok to violate the constituation. It’s ok to be a homosexual as long as you don’t tell anyone until your caught playing the game in an airport head. Please everybody, vote these idiots out. How come all the other industrialized nations have figured this out and we haven’t? It’s because of the holier than thou conservatives that are unable to change with times. They are bring this country down. Don’t let it happen any longer.
