One man's worst moment is another man's finest, most heroic hour.
"Booing a soldier serving our nation is uncalled for."
He’s not being booed for being a soldier, he is being booed for his behavior. Being a soldier does not indemnify one against their other actions being judged.
"And I suspect if a soldier was booed at a Dem event, you wouldn't be defending the action because "he wasn't being booed for being a soldier" (which NO ONE has suggested).
As a soldier, he deserves the respect of those whose lives he is defending with his own. Has nothing to do with condoning his point of view.
Man, we can't even show simple respect to our soldiers anymore unless they're "our" kind of soldiers? What the heck is going on here?"
---Since I know you'll ask, the person who said soldiers shouldn't be booed was not banned, but their profile now says that they have voluntarily left because they are annoyed with the hive mind mentality.
“Any type of sexual activity has no place in the military”
This can’t be repeated enough. Gays out. Women waaaaay in the back / homefront. Soldiers in.
Keep that stuff at home, off base, or on shore-leave.
Honesty is the best policy. Coddling a pervert who incidentally got beat up, fired, served his country, is sick, etc., is polite, but not honest. These homos need to accept that their actions are sick demented and immoral, not parade their deficiencies as though they were badges of achievement.
If you say you will put DADT back—you will get the military vote.
The privacy of the ballot protects from being arrested by the PC MPs for the new military thought crime of “homophobia.”
How do we know that some of the booers at these debates weren’’t agents-provocateurs planted by the other side? (Inquiring minds want to know).
That soldier wanted to out himself as gay and people didn’t approve—just like that gay military magazine said—GET OVER IT.
It's interesting how the MSM can spin this by saying Republicans were booing a soldier.
He got to ask a question ONLY BECAUSE HE"S GAY!!
Open Gays in the military is the WORST thing that has happened to this country.
What if he said he’s a PEDOPHILE???? What would be the difference??? He ONLY wants to think about SEX, ANAL SEX!!! They were RIGHT in BOOING! It’s DISGUSTING!
The only bad thing was that it was only 3 or 4 people that had the courage to boo. People are so afraid to speak the truth. A Republican debate...full of Republicans.... where people boo or cheer the positions they hear...and only 3 or 4 boo this pervert? A sad day indeed.
I don't give crap about queer soldiers they can GTH. The only reason why this DADT repeal is flying is that the economy is so bad. As soon (if ever) the economy picks up the volunteer military is finished.
"How is he 'forcing his sin on' you, unless you're hanging around people like that?"
We pay their salaries, Every sailor, soldier, airman and/or marine is a representative of our country. The faggot soldier give the wrong impression, that we are weak and effeminate and not serious like the Europeans. It's dangerous. You are dangerous and are probably gay to boot. Heck maybe that was you in the youtube.
He was booed for promoting the homosexual agenda. He should be thrown out of the army for homosexuality or at least tested for steroids. People are sick and tired of tolerance politics.
Santorum hit a home run on that question.
"Man, we can't even show simple respect to our soldiers anymore unless they're "our" kind of soldiers?"
If you can't tell the difference between a respectable soldier and an embarrassment to the uniform, you are a moral castrato and your opinion is worthless.
Honor apart from morality does not exist.
“As a soldier, he deserves the respect of those whose lives he is defending with his own. “
Nope. No defending fudge-packers. He wasn’t booed for military service. THAT would be a Democrat debate!
He was booed for wanting fudge-packers to be allowed to openly parade their perversion in the military. He was booed for believing a guy stuffing his cock into another guy’s butt is the same as marriage. He was booed for violating natural law, for it doesn’t take much sense to realize that a man’s penis wasn’t meant for another man’s anus.
If the soldier had asked for approval of screwing little boys, or dogs, or having 4 wives, would you say we still need to applaud him?
I think it was the question that was booed, not the soldier.
