Rick Santorum Wants To Reinstate DADT. Can Bleeding Patients Also Have A Comeback?

September 23, 2011

What a piece of work. 

One has to wonder with such ‘keen insight’ why Rick Santorum is not doing better in the polls?  Clearly Santorum has not heard about Israel allowing gay men and women to serve, and the last I checked Israel was not lacking in ability to defend their country.

Santorum is a Class-A bigot.

Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) doubled down on his commitment to reinstating Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell during an appearance on Fox & Friends this morning, telling co-host Gretchen Carlson that the nation hasn’t “even begun seeing the consequences” of repeal. Perhaps projecting his own feelings towards LGBT people, the former Pennsylvania senator said he worried that soldiers will feel “uncomfortable” and “odd” around openly gay servicemembers:

SANTORUM: The man and women who sign up for the military are now going to be placed in very difficult and uncomfortable personal situations, very close quarter situations…We got to recruit people who would want to do this and now you’re going to put them in a very odd and uncomfortable environment. A lot of people, I believe are going to leave a lot of people aren’t going to join who otherwise would have joined, and that’s going to hurt our ratings, it’s going to hurt our ability to defend this country, and we shouldn’t be playing social experimentation….There is no role for playing sexual experimentation games in the United States military.

    If the military were not a seed-bed for social experimentation there would be no blacks or women in the armed forces. In any case, no person who has not worn a uniform has no right to criticize members of the military or offer comments on ‘how things should be.’

    By this time in American life EVERY one us of has has worked or been a friend of someone who is openly gay. 25 years ago my mom ( she’s still going strong at 85) was laid up with bad arm…The nice guys living next store shoveled her driveway, made her soup…. I was going to go on and on about this and that….but it’s all so stupid. Working or living around a gay person is such a non issue. Why won’t these morons just give it up?
