Skip to comments.Obama Names Openly Gay Veteran to West Point Advisory Board
Posted on 07/05/2011 6:57:16 PM PDT by kristinn
President Barack Obama named Brenda S. Sue Fulton, an Army veteran who campaigned to end the dont ask, dont tell policy, to the Board of Visitors of the United States Military Academy on Tuesday, putting the first openly gay or lesbian person onto the board that advises him on West Point.
Ms. Fulton, 52 years old, is the executive director and co-founder of Knights Out, an organization of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered West Point graduates and allies. Her appointment to the West Point board, announced Tuesday, does not require Senate confirmation. She graduated from West Point in 1980, part of the first class to include women.
Ms. Fulton says she became politically active for the first time in years after Mr. Obama took office, as she campaigned for an end to the military policy that has banned openly gay and lesbian people from serving in the military. She said in an interview Tuesday that she hopes her appointment will send a message to young people who are considering military service.

Just another nail in America’s coffin.
Anti-American act of the day by stalinist Dick Obama.
I can hardly wait to vote this jackball out of office.
>She said in an interview Tuesday that she hopes her appointment will send a message to young people who are considering military service.<
Yeah...don’t go into the military or fag-dykes will make your lives a living hell.
So, she wanted to get closer to the cruising zone and Obama plunked her right down in the middle of it all.
Operation Rolling Blunder continues. I’m really starting to wonder if we’ll have 2012 elections.
Has not West Point advocated for the removal of DADT in the recent past?
Just barry the bastard boy flipping off conservatives once again. This sick little narcissist cannot help it that he is a degenerate don’tchaknow.
Jesus...if someone doesn’t stop this madman we are finished as a Nation...
I wonder just how many ex-academy types are in the Knights Out group?
Women who go to West Point will be called on the carpet.
The whole democratic party is a mass of sick perversion.
This is a problem with females, she took an academy slot from a man, served five years and then left the service, it was a bad investment that could have been invested in a male career officer.
“Brenda S. Sue Fulton is a 1980 graduate of the US Military Academy. She served for five years in the Signal Corps in Germany, as a platoon leader, staff officer, and company commander. After leaving the Army, Sue worked in brand management at Procter & Gamble and Church & Dwight; she also took two years to work in parish renewal programs for the Archdiocese of New York. Sue most recently worked for a pharmaceutical company and lives in North Plainfield, NJ, with her partner Penny Gnesin. Sue is the Executive Director of Knights Out.”
Obama: "Ahhhh, I just stuck my thumb in your eye. Take that servicemen."
Yet another reason why this fraud needs to be removed from office because he’s not eligible; all of these damning appointments and policies will be voided. It’s absolutely imperative.
The real frustration will be that we’ll be stuck with a candidate who will not even try to clean up this freak’s political messes.
it sure will "send" a message....
from now on, I'll never recommend the service to any young person...
She’ll be as effective as a corpse, man.
>>> Just another nail in Americas coffin.
I’m not really persuaded a board “board that advises him on West Point” is so influential that any single member could constitute a nail in America’s coffin.
Far as I can tell, the last pieces of advice Obama took relating to West Point were 1) consider it “enemy territory”, and 2) confiscate the sabers of the graduating class so they couldn’t en masse undertake a human wave attack on the podium and hack the visiting president to death.
This board sounds more like just a Quango. I wonder if the members are paid.
So do I, but that won't end the culture war. We'll be fighting the generations (aging Baby Boomers, Gen Xers, and Generation.commers) that put him in office for decades. It may spell the end of our nation as we know it, even if we survive the tyranny of the Obammunist.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
This move is vintage 0bama because it shows how much of a person of conflict and division this guy is.
Here he is so naked in this in-your-face conflict focused move, that he is clearly baiting anyone to join in a fight.
America’s Military Institution will not accept and should not be forced to accept a person who is a gay advocate to sit on a board of review on oversight.
Barry is in his truest element here as the baiting, fight starting, activist who has mastered the art of starting a fight and then leveraging that to win some gain for himself.
He’s a simple street punk who’s hate endlessly leads him to look for his next fight.
OOOoooooo, booooo, hissss.
I wish I had thought of it.
They're more than that. They're a mass of sick perversion that is hellbent on destroying our nation, and our way of life. The danger they pose goes well beyond their perversion.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
Add ANOTHER one to the list!
LGBT Appointments in the Obama-Biden Administration
You have hit on something very important. It is like conducting a purge of our armed forces, an attempt to drive out the old guard via demoralization.
The ranks of experienced, good men fail to re-up in disgust, and 0bama wants to fill this void with 0bama cronies.
Don't underestimate this guy; he has an agenda to implement, at all costs.
The people over age 45 voted against Obama, the people under 45 voted for Obama, and the future leaders that were 18 to 29, worshipped the man with 66% of their vote.
The older people dying off is the last thing this country needs, because when they go, it is over for good.
The fact is a lesbian doesn’t belong on the board at all, just as she should never have been in the Army and never have been at the Academy.
That’s so gay it’s racist.
Whatever President replaces Obama absolutely must go scorched earth and remove the infestation of leftists/libs/homosexuals and communists from government at every level from Janitor to Aide to military brass.
HUAC top to bottom. And Obama has given any Republican/Indy President the precedence to do it because that’s just what/how he is doing it by installing his people there.
Many current senior officers retire in disgust. Obama replaces them with those loyal to him.
A reshuffle of senior officers takes place. Placed in roles favorable to Obama.
Obama doesn't like the results of the next election. Or he creates a crisis before that, and implements a state of emergency. His loyal officers support him.
We need a Third Great Awakening.
I don't know that they won't try, the problem is some of the kenyan's legacy will be permanent. Look at the 2 he appointed to SCOTUS, there in for a good 20 years , not to mention the lower courts. This Marxist has done irreparable damage to the country and this appointment to West Point is just the latest example.
Not to defend islamo-fascists, but it isn't our freedom that they resent, it's the Godless culture we're promoting. We're turning into a pagan country.
Strikes me as classic Alinsky.
And why wouldn't that sick pos Ubama name a pervert who is, by definition, mentally unstable to this "advisory board"? He intends to do everything he can to destroy traditional America and its institutions before he is flushed down the toilet like a foul turd on election day 2012.
Elections have consequences.
Congratulations, America, on your "historic" election of the Kenyan communist Ubama.
Don't bet the farm that you'll have the opportunity...
Eh, she’s just one of the boys...
I wonder if Ubama knows he is doomed in the next election and so just wants to stick a thumb in the eye of normal, decent Americans whenever he can?
FWLIW, 1980 was the first year of women grads from West Point. I dated a gal in H.S. that was a year older than me that was in that class. They were plebes in the Fall of 1976.
Will have some kind of election, bet on a lot of fraud though I don’t know if he will win especially if the economy takes another dive which it is likely. That said there are still a lot of people who will vote for him and that is the danger. If this was 2016 then I can asure you that he will have every bureaucratic aspect of our government under his control. This simply means that any election that is held he would ignore just like all the other laws he is ignoring now. He would have too much power at that point and tell however wins to take a hike. He is to weak to do that right now though it is possible that it could happen sooner.
The guy reminds me of Hugo Chavez when he one in 1998. Chavez then called for a new constitution and shut out there congress by telling them to take a hike, and the rest is history.
I was stunned when he was elected. I am beyond understanding how our Congress and Military are just letting this continue. He’s beyond out of control.
Remember that Clinton had a massive purge of the Navy’s male Officer Corp during his administration.
Elections have consequences. Be sure to vote for politicians who are openly pro-family and accept no substitutes.
People think China is patient. They haven’t met the dim’s. Obvious as hell and subtle as the devil.
Of course he did.
“The real frustration will be that well be stuck with a candidate who will not even try to clean up this freaks political messes.”
Either that or the imperial judiciary will claim such action is “unconstitutional”.
The new permissible salute for gays will be to grab the crotch. If they’re in a war zone and they try their behavior, there might start to be a lot of frag the fag.
