Really, Todd Lally?
Comparing gay people to being overweight and other medical conditions?
Ever hit up the American Psychological Association to test that ignorant opinion? The American Medical Association? Or even a gay person?
Here’s what he had to say on Joe Elliott’s program yesterday:
Or the transcript for those of you unable to play the audio:
JE: Just very quickly, uh, Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. Overturned or set aside by a federal judge the other day. You’re a military guy, your comments?
TL: Well, that’s gonna be something that, uh, I’ve already spoken about. We talked about it last night at the debate. Judicial activism in itself I think is not good for our country. We have one judge overturning a law that was passed by 400 or 535 people. As a combat veteran, as a guy who’s been deployed for a year at a time, I can tell ya there’s no privacy in the military. There’s gonna be very hard ways, uh. You gotta separate the people. You’re gonna have to have facilities for men, gay men, females, gay females. At what cost to the taxpayer? And let’s remember what the number one charge of the military is is to protect this country. And by lifting this – this is a policy that has worked, it has worked efficiently. We have gays in the military. We just are not allowing gay behavior. And I don’t think that’s too unfair.
People say, well, you’re discriminating, I’m like, the military has standards. We don’t allow overweight people, we don’t allow people that have certain medical issues. I mean, you don’t go to the military to be an individual.
Has he turned on a television at any time in the past ten years? Cause I’ve seen more than my share of fatties in fatigues.
And if gays are already in the military, why don’t we currently have segregated facilities for the queers to be kept away from the “men” ??
