You seem to be suggesting I support his point of view. I’ve done no such thing. I just think those who are serving have the right to ask a question of a candidate—yep, even gay ones.
Doesn’t mean I support the point of view. But I don’t get this “shoving down our throats” thing. Nothing any supporter of this crap has ever done has been about that. (VOTING for pols who support such positions is something else entirely.)
I don’t see what is achieved by the crowd responses in these situations. Much better, to me, to let them have their say, and then let the candidates articulate their positions. If they make sense, then those we need to draw to our side will not be put off by boos that hit people on the emotional level. Let the intellectual argument carry the day, not momentarily satisfying boos.
IMO - He was free to ask whatever he wanted and people were free to boo him. And I say this with a Daughter and Son in law both in the USAF and having done tours in the sandbox.
They did not boo his service, they booed his demand for invented sexual rights that are now being forced on the military. He’s a soldier and I respect that and his service totally. I have nothing but disdain for him putting his sex practices over that service. What of the straight soldiers? They will be drummed out if they say anything against homosexuality publicly? Is it not up to us to defend THEM?
As to what is achieved, I would submit that such a forum is the only way the public will ever see just how disgusted we are with the gay agenda because the news censors all opposition. In that live situation, it was all but impossible without such censorship being noted and discussed further.
The news media shoving down our throats on this subject. Not you. This whole issue with the News media gay this gay that transgender this that! That is what I’m talking about. Why did Fox put this video on at the debates.. This is not a major issue with me or I’m sure with a lot of Americans!!!
