GOP Congressman: “Homosexual Lobby” Wants “Military Takeover”

Duncan Hunter, a GOP U.S. Congressman from California told Tony Perkins today that the “homosexual lobby” wants “a military takeover by the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender community.” It was unclear what Hunter, 34, thinks the “homosexual lobby” is, or what they would be taking over, but, presumably, the U.S. armed forces. It was also unclear what Congressman Hunter — who inherited his congressional seat from his militant and homophobic father — was suggesting the “homosexual lobby” would do with the U.S. military should they gain control of it.

Perkins, head of the SPLC-certified anti-gay hate group, Family Research Council, is responsible — directly and indirectly — for volumes of anti-​gay bigotry and hate speech.

“Hunter was one of the staunchest opponents of the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, and told Tony Perkins that he predicted such a “takeover,” writes Right Wing Watch today, while offing this transcript:

Perkins: Let’s talk about this issue here, Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, we knew a lot of this was going to happen, you’ve been pressing this issue from the very beginning. But just, I mean, days after this is signed into law, first we had the transvestites wanting to be allowed to come into the military, but now we have chaplains being ordered, or at least given the permission and of course we know what that means it means they’ll be pressured, to do same-sex weddings on military bases. Are they moving faster than you thought they would?

Hunter: No, in fact this is exactly what we knew would happen. We’re not especially clairvoyant, we can’t see into the future, but the homosexual lobby isn’t simply pressing to have equal status in the military with people that are heterosexual. They would like a military takeover by the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender community, and that’s what they’re going to keep pushing for until it happens.

Right Wing Watch also has the audio on their site.

Hunter, amusingly, given his paranoid comments, serves on the House Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities.

Perkins, who has paid the KKK over $80,000, and/​or his Family Research Council hate group have accused gays of terrorism, have said homosexuality is “abnormal,” and drives LGB teens to suicide, have said gays, “will not be satisfied until those who hold a traditional, natural view of marriage are completely silenced,” have equated homosexuality with pedophilia, have — contrary to his lie denying it — said gay behavior should be outlawed, have said gays, “thrust their bedrooms into the public square,” have blamed the economy on America’s high rate of divorce, have rushed to support Michele and Marcus Bachmann’s dangerous “ex-​gay” therapy practices, have suggested military leaders lied to Congress to get Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell repealed, have ignored the 6000+ U.S. service members who died in Iraq and Afghanistan and claimed that repeal of DADT was the military’s “most difficult mission yet,” for starters.

This isn't even news. It's the ramblings of yet another republiturd trying to get a rise out of someone because he's not in the limelight. I know we need to watch these people closely because they are insane and not housed in a secure facility for the safety of themselves and others. Give him time, I'm sure he'll be spotted in some sex scandal soon, and the hypocracy will be shown one more time.

Somebody should contact the Navy, tell them what Congressman Hunter said about the Navy and then request an official Navy comment on his remarks.

whatever people think, the gay community are getting alot of attention and as for them taking over the military…I think that is very unlikely.

It's the U. S. military establishment that wants a Gay "take-over" of all of the country's branches of service. The strategy is based upon the fact that everyone everywhere is petrified of Gay human beings. Gay servicemen in every nation around the globe are the biggest threat to ending the world as we all now know it. All servicemen around the world run away when confronted with even one, out-of-the-closet soldier, sailor, airman, or marine. Gay servicemen are more powerful and effective weapons than a nuclear bomb. The Pentagon strategy is for the nation's entire fighting apparatus be controlled and dominated by Gay Americans. Then, if any other country thinks about aggression towards the U. S., it will think twice and thrice. Every other country's servicemen would run in horror when even one Gay American were to face them on a battlefield. And Gay Americans serving in such a capacity are seen by leaders in the Pentagon as patriotic heroes. As a matter of fact, should a Gay American go out between enemy and our front lines, s/he should be awarded The Medal of Honor for having saved so many Americans.

It's amazing what they will say when they think they're preaching to the choir.

Has Duncan Hunter figured out yet that anyone can listen to a radio broadcast?
