Ted Cruz made shocking comments…if by shocking, you mean common sense comments some people disagree with politically. He thinks our military should focus on being the military, and not focus on social justice or anything that’s not a) protecting the good guys, and b) killing the bad guys.
I know, right?
“How about having the military focusing on hunting down and killing the bad guys…instead of treating it as this crucible for social justice innovations. We’ve lost sight of what their job is and that’s what we need to get back to.”
“We shouldn’t view the military as a cauldron for social experiments.”
This kind of extremist common sense should have no place in modern politics.
The question was about the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy President Obama repealed and asking what Ted Cruz would do, who said he would…
“…listen to the expert judgment of the generals and admirals on the current situation and that military policy should follow what is needed for good order and discipline and not social issues.”
Again, does Ted Cruz have no shame?
This will be the main thing I’ll be happy about with a new President. Instead of the military focusing on social justice and National Security focusing on global cooling warming change, they can get back to doing what they’re supposed to be doing…being the military and protecting national security.
