Beck: Pentagon's Woman In Combat puts female, Hispanic, Eskimo, dwarf cross dresser and some handicapable, transgendered breast cancer survivor as a soldier on the front line.”

Conservative radio host Glenn Beck on Thursday blasted the Pentagon’s decision to lift the ban on women serving in combat roles by warning that the enemies of the United States would not “cower in defeat because we have a female, Hispanic, Eskimo, dwarf cross dresser and some handicapable, transgendered breast cancer survivor as a soldier on the front line.”

“Nobody wants to be a pig, nobody wants to say the unpopular things, we just want to talk about the truth tonight,” Beck explained at the top of his Thursday broadcast. “If a few feathers are ruffled, oh well.”

“This is the dumbest idea I’ve ever heard,” he continued. “The military is not designed to be beacon of equality, it’s designed to defend the country in times of danger. And quite honestly, war is the act of killing each other. And to win, you have to kill people faster than the other team. That’s what war is all about.”

“The enemy is not going to cower in defeat because we have a female, Hispanic, Eskimo, dwarf cross dresser and some handicapable, transgendered breast cancer survivor as a soldier on the front line ready to unleash an attack of unparalleled diversity. Nope, that’s not going to do it. You gotta kill them. That’s how you make people cower in defeat.



This man is such a asshat. When my MOS was reclassified from combat to administrative it allowed woman into my job much to my horror. Quickly I found out that size does not determine determination and guts. I am extremely proud of the woman in my section who showed me exactly what they are made of. I would proudly go, as a transgender woman with any of those cisgender woman into combat.

I have a friend who's a cis male with dwarfism. He did forward ops in the Army during the first Iraq War. He's since become disabled (civilian injury), but I'd lay even money a lot more of our people in uniform would rather see him than Beck as their support when the chips are down.

I also remember the first woman I ever kissed. She to this day has shrapnel in her body from when she parachuted down with the rest of the US troops during the Grenada operation. Can't say that trans people ain't already done it, Beck. Just not openly. What. A. Tool.

Thank you Lysana. The young solider who so impressed me my weighed all of 90lbs soaking wet yet she successfully completed the prisoner escape and evade course something that stopped cold many of my platoons most manly of men.

When I was active duty I served in a Hawk air defense unit eventually becoming a tactical control assistant. One thing you learn very quickly in ADA there is no 'front line'. Every person in the theater of war instantly becomes a front line soldier the second war starts.

Winning the next war (god forbid there will be one) will depend on every soldier being successful in the first few hours of the conflict. To do that they need to know we are confident in their ability to get the job done regardless of sex, gender identity, height, skin color, breast cancer history and on and on.

People like Beck would willing endanger our country's fighting force just to draw some attention to themselves. Thats dispicable. Thats unamerican. He needs to be stopped.
