WATCH: Senator Harasses General Mattis on LGBT in the Military. Gets Shut Down Hard...
Even the most ardent #NeverTrump conservative agrees that Gen. "Mad Dog" Mattis is a great choice for Secretary of Defense. Alas, there's always a few leftist cryholes sure to make their whiny presence known. In this case, Senator Gillibrand wanted to use Mattis' hearing to push her political agenda. Maybe even run for President in 2020. If the pantsuit fits.
With everything on fire in the world and the need for a strong military, Gillibrand chose to spend everyone's time asking about... the LGBT community.
GILLIBRAND: Do you believe that allowing LGBT Americans to serve in the military or women in combat is undermining our lethality?
MATTIS: Frankly, senator, I’ve never cared much about two consenting adults and who they go to bed with.
Right, because he's not a Muslim (see Over 50 Muslim Countries Blocking LGBT Groups from UN AIDS Convention and Muslim Group Plans Genocide at Turkey’s Gay Pride Parade). Gillibrand is conspicuously quiet when it comes to that. Moving on.
GILLIBRAND: So the answer is no?
MATTIS: Senator, my concern is on the readiness of the force to fight and to make certain it’s at the top of its game
At which point, Gillibrand demanded that "Mad Dog" have it put in writing. Yes, really...
No means no, lady. Learn the rules.
Of course, it didn't take long before she was then shut down by the Chairman. In case her repeatedly asking the same question didn't make it obvious enough, she wasn't going to be satisfied until she forced him to back her agenda.
This is what leftists do. The General gave her a personal, reasonable answer. But as we saw with the leftist attack on Chip & Joanna Gaines, it's not enough not to care. You have to holler "YASSSSSS QUEEN" whenever LGBT rights, or whatever the left claims is LGBT rights that day, comes up in conversation.
The left demands either complete conformity or utter silence. There is no in between. Tolerance...
