Skip to comments.Obama wants Marines to wear ‘girly’ hats

A change to the Marine Corps’ uniform hats could take the hard-nosed Leathernecks from the Halls of Montezuma to the shops of Christopher Street.
Thanks to a plan by President Obama to create a “unisex” look for the Corps, officials are on the verge of swapping out the Marines’ iconic caps with a new hat that some have derided as so “girly” that they would make the French blush.

First step to delete the ‘Corps’.
...”one senior Marine source fumed to The Post”...
Don’t worry, Marine, you will soon be relieved of duty by Der Kommissar soon, like the others who don’t toe the party line.
Apparently the old hats gave the Marines too much protection while they held obamaramadingdongs umbrella in the rain.
As long as we save enough money to continue the unfettered introduction of federal benefits for same sex partners on military bases. We have all the money in the world for that!!
Barry wants to make sure that HIS military force always looks fabulous.
How long before the Congress finds their gonads?
This is what Obunghole considers leadership.
America is in such a sad state thanks to his fundamental change agenda. Some ridiculous potentate will shortly exploit all of this mess, and put us on the coals directly.
It could be Putin who has more moxie in his little finger than this Cupcake has in his whole body.
Thanks Obunghole and those idiots that voted for you; this is on your heads.
Stocks lining Pennsylvania Avenue yet?
Off to the Gulag with you buster! Don't you understand that the Justice Department, IRS and Department of Homeland Security have more than sufficient ammunition for their needs? The USMC doesn't need ammunition. They need to get with the program of fundamentally transforming America.
Wearing a girlie hat is a small price to pay for a continuing paycheck, isn't it?
hey bammy...quit f’ing with the Marines.
and everything else for that matter.
The only thing missing from that cover is the reservoir tip.
FYI, anyone who is unclear, it is the dress hat that female marines wear now, just that everyone gets to wear them. So; if this means the uniform goes unisex, does that mean that the skirts go as well as the sensible pumps and nylons as well?
Oh, right, men have to look like women and women get to look like women. It is the unisex way.
Congress are the ones who opened the door to situations like this with their progressive actions over the years to unizex the military and all its functions. Obama is just taking this decades long trend to its illogical extreme.
I think we all know what’s going on here, what the larger agenda is. This is one more step on the slippery slope to downsizing and reducing the effectiveness of our military.
Why that little foreign, swishing, muslim, traitor.
They are NOT CALLED ‘HATS’....They are called ‘Covers’............
And maybe add a little hip padding to the male Marines’ trousers to effect a more unisex shape for all members of the Corpse.
NOT ONLY NO, BUT HELL NO!!!!!!!........
Just wait until you see the fabulous new barracks all done in new colors like military mauve! Maybe the troops would like furnishings with the retro look. :)
Matter of fact, I always thought the old 1920s cap was far superior to the latter barracks cap!
See the old time pic of Gunny Dan Daly w/his two medals of Honor displayed around his neck!
Politics aside, sometimes headgear is just headgear, although there are those who will just not let a good crisis, etc. go by w/o taking advantage of it!
Dick.G: AMERICAN !!!!!
CW II or succession is around the corner.
Looks like a homo hat!
I don’t know...maybe if the covers were in a nice mauve...
Forward to the 1920s. Didn’t Navy officers wear this style back in the 1920s?
Not to barge in on the topic, but America needs to make things once again.
Bring back American industry, mostly from China.
We cannot continue to send away American industry.
Sounds like the CiC is all excited and waiting for the day when he can stand in front of the Marines and give the order “fix bayonets boys and take this beach”.
The new hats make them look like crossing guards.
Why don’t you start a manufacturing plant? Lead the way.
Are they going to use it with the alpha , bravo, and charlie uniforms and not the dress blues?
Unfortunate picture shows two different uniforms.
The new ones look like Fire Chiefs’ hats. Keep the old one, and stop mucking with the Marines!
Will “hoo-rah!” be replaced with “fabulous!”?
They have a Charles de Gaulle look.
They look like French hats.
That’s only until he comes out with his GAY hat design.
How anybody could not thoroughly hate and despise this loathsome creature by now is beyond me.
Obama won’t stop until the armed forces are transformed into yet another LGBT government worker bastion.
Why doesn’t barack just come out of the closet?
You and I know he’s gay, he knows he’s gay and Michelle certainly knows he’s gay. Obama, Kanye and Tom Cruise just need to come out asap.
They’re all at least a 1/4 Bi...
David Bowie (no relation to Jim) once sang about such fascism. I mean, fashion.
Nothing else the queen in chief has done has made anyone mad enough to do anything...maybe this will nudge the Marines into a Coup d’Etat? Yeah, Yeah...I lnow, but a fella can dream, can’t he?
Besides playing the same old broken record on FR day in and day out, what are YOU doing to bring jobs back to America??
They look like firemens’ hats.
The few the proud, the metrosexual???
The new hats will show up on radar and glow in the dark probably
The community organizer reveals his inner fashion designer...
and Battalions are now called Ponies or Bronies.
