Bill Clinton: American Military Is Now 'Less Racist, Less Sexist, and Less Homophobic'
Weekly Standard ^ | 11/04/2012 | DANIEL HALPER

Posted on 11/04/2012 11:48:41 AM PST by nhwingut

At a campaign rally for President Barack Obama yesterday in Virginia, former President Bill Clinton talked about bringing "this country together" and crossing "all of its diversity." Then, Clinton added this:

[VIDEO]

"One of the things the decider-in-chief has to do is decide whether he’s going to bring this country together across all its diversity or let it drift apart. Look at how much stronger the American military is because it is less racist, less sexist and less homophobic and we’re just looking for people who can do the job," said Clinton.

So much for Kill The Enemy and Break Their Stuff.

Now it's Shame them Into Giving Up Because They Are Not PC.

THE NEW ADMIN BETTER FIX THIS.

Yeah, in my military, I also just want people who can do that job to defend me and my country. And if that means that the most racist, sexist, misogynist, homophobic, xenophobic gunner can shoot down more bombers than anyone else, then I expect my military to figure out how to deal with him.

But then what do I know?.....I’m just a civilian.

He left out that commanders are being relieved on a daily basis also. You can’t have a military without discipline. It appears to me that discipline has suffered. In the military, you can’t afford to allow the lunatics to run the asylum. People can get killed.

Who cares if the military can actually defend the country? Let’s concentrate on the BIG things: hollowing out the military’s war fighting capability by making it less racist, less sexist, and, of course, much more GAY! Yippee!

Earth to Bill, earth to Bill, come in Bill. Obama's belief in class warfare as fundamental in society has helped fracture the America people.

America has always been, "Out of many, one." With the Marxists it's, "Out of many, division and strife."

Bill Clinton hollowed out the Military and let Rangers in Somalia get dragged through the street while he rec’d oral sxe.

His wife is now letting her personal representatives be murdered, along with Navy Seals.

2 absolute idiots...incompetent...disgusting.

He and Obama are 2 foul pieces o’shizz.

Bill Clinton: American Military Is Now 'Less Racist, Less Sexist, and Less Homophobic'

There you have it. This is what Democrats think is important when it comes to the military. In truth, it's one reason why they're unfit to be in charge of the military.

Clinton, the military is a reflection of society at large. Put a cork in in your pie-hole.

They’re also less confident that their government will have their backs if they are attacked by terrorists!

I hope it is less racist, the black power mentality was dominate in the early 70s among the NCOs, and the black ranks openly reflected black militancy.

In AIT I saw a black power wrist band wearing, non-haircut getting soldier with the banned afro-comb, wearing boots that he refused to shine, and all the other things that a washout does, (shirt tail, slouching, hands in pockets, attitude, no leadership, lazy, hostile), when he needs to be cycled out of the military, win soldier of the month.

The man was chosen by his black NCOs over not only the white soldiers, including THE obvious choice, but over a couple of very good black soldiers who were in the running, but who weren’t militants. I doubt that he made it through his enlistment, but he will always be ‘soldier of the month’ for that cycle, it was the clearest race message that I have ever seen within an institution.

Yeah, try asking that question of the families that lost their loved ones in Benghazi.

Are they now happy that their loved ones were left to die because "we aren't so militaristic, so racist, we just loved those Islamist who were murdering us."

So Bill, if the military was all of those things when you were young would you have still fled the country to avoid the draft? *COWARD!*

Clinton truly does suck. As does the way he measures a “strong” military.

The Left truly believes that the masses believe whatever blather the Democrat Party spews, no questions asked.

The left, in a manner of speaking, figures that flicking drops of water at your enemy wins, with minimal losses. In fact, if you looked at the death toll in America, the dead Libyan ambassador, and more, you see that Clinton, Bush II, and so on never really did a full job at beating Iraq, Iran, and the Taliban. Then there’s the problem of ground troops somehow being hours away from Benghazi, where’s the Marines or Navy SEALS to launch from a carrier? Or how about airborne SERE or Rangers from our Air Force bases? The military is a mess, an frankly, if it takes a war hawk to properly command it, so be it.

No Rangers were dragged through the streets in Mogadishu as far as I have ever been able to find, the men dragged, were the crew of Black Hawk Super 6-4, and the two Delta operators who knowingly went to their deaths to fight for them.

The media, including talk radio, decided to call them Rangers for some unknown reason.

Of all of the 18 soldiers killed, 6 were Rangers.

That’s all well and good,

There is nothing well or good about it. The fact that we have been conditioned to accept it tells me this country has dim prospects for continuing to be a Constitutional Republic.

I do not know what the big deal is over Clinton campaigning for Obama, Can anyone name any Dem in the past who won an election based on Clinton endorsing or campaigning for them. Generally the guy is the kiss of death.Most candidates he actively campaigned for have lost in the past. Clinton is a legend in his own and the MSM’s mind. In short, he is irrelevant.

I was in the military, when it was “more homophobic”.

At least, in those days, even the leaders had balls!

The job of the military is to kill people and break things, period. It is not, as some mothers do with a three year old, get down on their knees and try to explain to them in ‘mommy words’, what is desired at that moment.

Wow, that’s just great, I’m so glad. I’ll bet that will drive fear into the hearts of our enemies? Frankly, I wouldn’t mind a few neanderthals here and there amongst our service members. But, that’s the democrats for you, tinker with social policy of an organization they hate, don’t understand, and never will understand. They just had to “fix” the most functional part of our government that put the efficiencies of the rest of the government to shame. Way to go bubba and bubba jr.

Look at how much stronger the American military is because it is less racist, less sexist and less homophobic

When I read that line, I picture a 1960s style cereal box of Quake cereal, except emblazoned with new language:




NEW and IMPROVED!! Softer and curvier, with extra fruits and nuts added! Don't miss the mystery hidden Muslim sleeper cell that we put in EVERY BOX!

Historically, the Quake cereal character was a tough, no-nonsense he-man who could dig through mountains and clobber things into submission and spoke like William Conrad (largely because he WAS William Conrad). The new one wore a cape, palled with an orange kangaroo and rode a scooter.

The redesign was a politically correct response to mothers who didn't like Quake's violent image. After the change Quake soon was replaced by the kangaroo and relegated to be the sidekick of a kangaroo whose cereal was poorly conceived--orange flavor! Shortly later they both disappeared forever. They even "improved" the way the box opened, forcing half the country to rip off the topp third of the box to get to the #$%%$ cereal.


DON'T LET THIS HAPPEN TO THE U.S. MILITARY!
