AIPNews: 67% of Marines Think Homosexuals Will Hinder Effectiveness

More from AIP News (America’s Independent Party) on the repeal of DADT (via Tom Hoefling).

66.5 percent of U.S. Marine combat forces surveyed by a special Defense Department working group said that putting homosexuals in their units would hurt their effectiveness in the field, and 47.8 percent of Marines in combat units specifically said putting homosexuals in their units would hurt their effectiveness “in an intense combat situation.”

    Those marines sound like pussies to me.

    Like the pussies who laughably assert that gays are a threat to heterosexual marriage. I can only think of one way that could be the case, and that’s still a stretch.

    Sounds like the Marine Corps is going downhill.

    Here’s a comment on the subject — as published in Agora FInancial’s “Whiskey and Gunpowder” newsletter today — from a former Marine who will remain anonymous except to mention that it’s me:

    I served the Marine Corps through the partial or complete tenures of three commandants (Generals PX Kelley, Al Gray and Carl Mundy) and served with a fourth (General Charles Krulak).

    During that time period, with one and only one exception (an immigrant worker trailer park [in Saudi Arabia] confiscated for use as billeting by I MEF) if I roomed with only one other person, I invariably did so in about 24 square feet of adjoined shelter half.

    Usually, I roomed with anywhere from 10 (in a GP tent) to 70 (in a squad bay) other Marines.

    Nobody gave a tinker’s damn what anyone else’s sexual orientation was, because … military service Is. Not. About. Fucking.

    The mission of the Marine rifle squad is to locate, close with, and destroy the enemy by fire and maneuver, and to repel the enemy’s assault by fire and close combat.

    The mission of every other Marine Corps element is to support the Marine Rifle Squad.

    Pursuant to that, you go where you’re told [to go], and you sleep where you’re told to sleep, including, if necessary, packed 30 Marines deep into the back of a 5-ton truck intended to carry 16 (Q: “How many Marines can fit in that truck?” A: “One more”).

    People who waste their time worrying about who might be staring at their asses in the shower don’t have what it takes to be Marines

    Anyone else remember when putting blacks and whites in the same unit was seen as “hindering effectiveness?” Marines can be bigots too. Who says they can’t be socialized?

  4. Get real

    Only time I have issues with Gays and Women in military is with Submarine duty. Otherwise, who cares.
    In reality, if a private has a problem with a Gay guy looking at his “junk” what is he to do? Tell the NCO that he wants to sleep in another part of the building? Other countries have openly gay military and they get along fine.

    I don’t understand all this. What, all the straight soldiers are afraid they’ll be unable to stop themselves from all of a sudden breaking into a gay orgy? Odd.

    Don’t get your panties in a bunch all of you perversion supporters. You don’t understand what is going on here. Tom Hoefling is actually a mole within the conservative movement. His fake political party, America’s Independent Party ( founded by fellow conservative mole Alan Keyes ), is actually a cover for a faction within the conservative movement that is working to undermine/betray all that it opposes and stands for. English translation – He is on your side!! He is just putting out the above information to get ” street cred ” – to provide a greater cover story for the fake front which he is operating behind. So don’t worry – he not only supports everything that you do but is working every day to position himself to betray the conservative movement in the greatest degree possible when the moment is right. He will stab the nation and the generations to come in the back far greater than you could ever dream of or hope for. His corruption – only the tip of the iceberg which is documented at TheCorruptionOfAlanKeyes.blogspot.com – is everything you can hope for to betray the nation and our children for generations to come.
