Huh. Since most pedophiles are straight, how are these two things related? And since most pedophiles are straight, aren’t they already allowed to serve? Convicted felon Oliver North, one of the greatest embarrassments to this nation in the past thirty years, said this on Hannity last night:
Stunning assault on the all-volunteer military, the very best in the world. Barack Obama now intents to treat them like lab rats in a radical social experiment, and it can be very, very detrimental. … In other words, this isn’t about rights. This isn’t about fairness. It’ all about national security. And apparently, Mr. Obama has forgotten it. … Now, here’ what’ next. NAMBLA [North American Man/Boy Love Association] members, same-sex marriages. Are chaplains in the U.S. military going to be required to perform those kinds of rituals? Do they get government housing?
Pretty. Think Progress adds context:
The irony of a convicted felon who lied about diverting proceeds from arms sales to a rebel group in Nicaragua supporting a policy that forces gay and lesbian servicemen to lie about their sexual orientation was lost on both Hannity and North. The pair also failed to mention that Joint Chief of Staff Chairman Mike Mullen personally supports the policy’ repeal, which would have forced North to condemn him for treating the troops “like lab rats in a radical social experiment.”
It’s not quite so ironic, as I see it. Oliver North lied in the ’80s. He’s lying about DADT now. He’s a liar. That’s what liars do. Did I mention he’s a common criminal? Yeah, that too. Also.
Anyway, I guess next up, Hannity will be asking O.J. Simpson his opinions on banning knives on airplanes or something.
If you’d like to watch the video, hop over to Think Progress. No need to stink up the air around here with Oliver North’s moving mouth.
