Sen. James Inhofe: Keep DADT or Straight Soldiers Will Let the Gay Ones Die

Sen. James Inhofe, the Oklahoma Republican, was “shocked” to learn Uganda lawmakers are considering passing the Anti-Homosexuality Bill. What else shocks Inhofe? The idea that straight soldiers would be willing to die for their gay comrades.

In an interview with the American Family Association’s radio show, where rational thought goes to die, Inhofe made the case that if DADT is repealed, the heteros are going to let them terrorists get the gays! “A military guy — I happen to be Army, and Army and Marines always feel that when we’re out there, we’re not doing it for the flag or the country; we’re doing it for the guy in the next foxhole. And [repealing DADT] would dramatically change that.”

    “I happen to be army.”? Did he actually ever fight or see combat? Internet indicates the answer is, um, NO.

    Imagine if he pondered, aloud on the radio, if white soldiers would be willing to take a bullet for Black soldiers, if a Moslem soldier would be willing to take one for a Jew or Christian? If a Christian would risk his/her life for an athiest?


    That comment shows that he is one of the most pathetic, vile, dispicable pieces of shit to ever slither out of womb……..

    Well, when conservative say that their anti-gay positions are rational, you need to only read or hear statements like that. It is bigotry.

  • Cam

    Is he using a study to back up his facts, or is he just admitting that HE wants homos to die?

  • DR (the real one, not the guy who made post #12)

    A good soldier wouldn’t leave his buddies hanging in a foxhole under enemy fire. I know enough guys who served in the military to be able to say that if this is how Inhofe feels, he is a total embarrassment to the uniform and ought to be ashamed of himself.

    More license to be bigoted. DADT needs to end, and it needs to end NOW.

    Obama is worse than Inhofe or any anti-gay Republican. That’s what the conserva-queers and the gay blogs tell me.

  • lookyloo

    Wow. That is totally disrespectful to our men and women in the military. He’s essentially saying they’re so weak minded and unprofessional that they’d lose their will or ability to fight the enemy if a gay soldier was in the next foxhole over. Talk about anti-American.

    I don’t think the Senator quite gets it. The kids don’t care about straight or gay. During a fight, they do care about staying alive.

    Has he ever heard the saying, “the enemy of my enemy is my friend”? In combat, anyone who shoots at the guy who is trying to shoot me, is my friend. If he kills that guy, even better.

    Oh, he probably does get it, but unfortunately what he gets is what is likely to play well with his redneck constituents and how spouting that might help him keep his job.

    It is not uncommon for a senator to pander to his constituents and this guy may be no exception.

    Once we get enough rough, tough sonofabitchin gay soldiers through all phases of marine boot camp and training and send them to foxholes with their weapons on the front lines, America isn’t going to need all the wussy, pampered little straight boys nervously wetting their pants in the back lines.

    Inhofe is one sick puppy. Isn’t he the one who showed the Senate a giant photo of his entire extended family and bragged that there wasn’t one gay in the whole bunch. I have been praying he gets proven wrong.
