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.
I remember! I also was extremely disappointed when he pulled out of the race. At that point I didn’t even want to vote.
Held my nose and did my duty but was disgusted.
It’s horrible when really good men such as Duncan Hunter cannot win due to media etc.
It’s amazing to me that Levin, Rush and co. did not get on board. Instead, they resorted to begging folks to vote for Flip instead of McCain at the end. Pathetic.
I wouldn’t go that far. In addition, I remain optimistic that we are finally turning a corner. We’ll keep at it. The marxists will not win.
Son is too young (and too green). Sr. hasn’t ruled anything in or out yet.
“Never say yes if one asked if he can push in your stool for you.”
That saying is “old as the hills and twice as dusty”.
How do you get 4 poofers to sit on a barstool?
Turn it upside down.
Ok, that’s good that he hasn’t ruled it out.
Pardon my ignorance, but what do you mean by “too green”?
Thanks for the ping. B4DH
My favorite. A true warrior for this country.
Bottom Line. Quit using the military as a social engineering petri dish!
Well Obama is about to become the prime target for every patriot in the continental USA.
I wish I had time to order Obama face dart boards from Thailand. Sell them as kits for 50 bucks each, make a fortune.
My dad was a Navy Corpseman(sadly) Peleliu almost claimed his life too. Let’s send Obama to war....it might make an effeminate man out of the little girl.
It’s too late for that socialist sissy.

Long time no see. Things OK in your neck of the woods?
