AJM: Hello Mr. Hunter. Im sure youve seen the news. Your son, Duncan D., has been getting hammered in the left-wing media and blogs for defending the Militarys Dont Ask Dont Tell policy.
DH: Yeah, Ive noticed that. He must be doing something right (laughs). Hes doing a great job, as evidenced by the frothing attacks from the homosexual lobby, the media and their democrat allies. I talked to Duncan, called him up. Gave him some encouragement and a few ideas. But hes doing great.
AJM: Have you had a chance to write anything up on this?
DH: No, Ive been so busy. I havent had a chance to write anything on this yet. But I think I may get on the TV out in Texas. Im going to see my cousin out there, who is real sick. Probably leave tomorrow. But I might be able to do a television interview out there on this.
AJM: Can you briefly summarize what your thoughts on this are?
DH: Well, I think that its disgraceful! Its insulting that after nine years of our guys in uniform being deployed in inconvenient and dangerous places fighting for this country, for the Obama Administration to be prying this back open now. Especially from a President who has very limited knowledge of military life and who looks to socialist countries for ideas.
Now with Colin Powell on their side, they are going to really try to push this thing. The military leaders supporting the Administration seemed to have forgotten what the mission is. It isnt social experiments to please the liberal democrats. I think its a real tragedy for these leaders to go along with this nutty idea.
No one talks about the absolute invasion of privacy. For these young men and women to have to be in extremely close quarters, shower with, live with essentially, people that will have a sexual attraction to them. That is unacceptable.
Most kids that join the military make a decision in conjunction with their families. And they do so, often times, because of its wholesome reputation and support of the traditional, conservative values that these young men and women and their families hold. It would be very detrimental to let a group of leftwing activists destroy that.
They are pushing this without thinking through its effects on National security. And affecting a National Security issue with a political decision is generally damaging. And this attempt by the Obama Administration to re-open this question and re-force this question is in that category.
I know that we did a lot of work, a lot of research when Bill Clinton tried to pay off his campaign contributors in the homosexual community in 1992 by opening up the military to their ranks. I know the enormous amount of research we did, the enormous amount of testimony we elicited in the Republican Research Committee during the hearings we held on it.
AJM: The big argument they are making that Ive seen time and again, including from Mr. Kerry, who attacked your son, Senator Kerry that is, is that times have changed and its time now has finally come. How do you respond to that argument, that times have changed?
DH: His answers may change, but values havent!
But listen, Ive got to walk in the door and meet some guys. That ought to give you plenty of ammo for now.
AJM: Absolutely. Thanks again and have a great rest of the day.

Check out the personal story above. Now imagine if such disgusting behavior were legitimized.
Actually I don’t think it’s that he doesn’t care whether the US has an effective military or not. Rather, he wants to destroy it.
He should have been. Instead we got a Romney/Giuliani/Huckabee krimpet party with Hillary Clinton as the star attraction. This country could have been a million times better off and so called republicans were too stupid to see it.
He is right. I’m glad he is speaking out. If people don’t wake up they are going to have not just public schools indoctrinating little kids but we will have the military forcibly made to accept and promote homosexuality and then everything else will fall into the conspiracy of silence and the onus of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” will be on the young men and women who disagree with such behavior. They will be drummed out along with the old guard.

I really like Duncan Hunter.
It was America’s loss when this man was not allowed much of a platform during the campaigned. The RNC did not like his stand on the border or China’s so called free trade.
How I wish he had won, he would have wiped the floor with zero, without even breaking a sweat!
I’d love to see him run for a Senate seat.
As I said, cripplecreek, the RNC did not support him either, they did not, still don’t, like his stand on the border and immigration, or on making China comply with trade practices other nations have to.
SOunds like a situation remedie by a riding crop, the colonels batoin sort of thing. Make them take rank formation and go right down the line whapping them with the riding crop so hard that they wouldn’t get hard again for the rest of heir time in theater.Hell the British regomental sargeants would have ehacked them so hard that they wouldn’t walk for a week.( SOrry those days are gone now.)
To quote another conservative we love.....”you betcha!”
Duncan Hunter, spot on!
Duncan Hunter is the BEST!
unrevised history would show that January 10, 2007 was the saddesst day this nation will have suffered. That was the day Duncan L. Hunter pulled out of the presidential race, due to a Leftist RNC and media and the One Worlders. I said then, and I will say it now, that he was the last chance to deliver us by changing the direction the Progressives have been taking the country for decades. God bless him. But history will never again be unrevised.
You’ve summed it up quite nicely — thanks.

He’s even so stupid he insults his own (1/2) race. BY pretending that buggering your neighbor (behavior) is as much a civil rights issue as discrimination against blacks used to be (God given skin color).
Even most liberal blacks find the comparison to be nonsense. But Obama is no ordinary libtard. He is a marxist, tyring his damndest to destroy American Exceptionalism
There’s a great man who is not afraid to tell it like it is! We could only be so fortunate to have him as President.
Pissant, do you know if he or his son have plans of running in 2012? His son might be too young yet.
Never say yes if one asked if he can push in your stool for you.
