He asked a question--he didn't perform any "actions". And I suspect if a soldier was booed at a Dem event, you wouldn't be defending the action because "he wasn't being booed for being a soldier" (which NO ONE has suggested).
As a soldier, he deserves the respect of those whose lives he is defending with his own. Has nothing to do with condoning his point of view.
Man, we can't even show simple respect to our soldiers anymore unless they're "our" kind of soldiers? What the heck is going on here?
Ever stop to think they were booing the question? The fact that he exposes himself (no pun intended)opens him up for reactions such as this. His service is respected; his lifestyle is not.
We have had to grant special status to homosexuals and told to shut up. Just as this soldier exercises his free speech and freedom of association, so too did the audience.
I didn’t think he was being booed for his behavior. I thought the policy was being booed and then the booing stopped as soon as it became clear that the soldier was FOR homosexuals in the military.
IOW, at first, I thought, and perhaps the audience did as well, that the soldier was in the process of saying “what are you going to do about this atrocious politicalization of the military that was the repeal of DADT?”
Anyway, clearly people should be more measured in their responses.
What if he said he’s a PEDOPHILE???? What would be the difference??? He ONLY wants to think about SEX, ANAL SEX!!! They were RIGHT in BOOING! It’s DISGUSTING!
Please by all means, leave again.
He is the one who said that being gay is *who he is.*
Santorum did a great job. This is social experimentation and shouldn’t be turned into a political game show question.
You one of those 'Log Cabin' republicans?
Point missed! There is (or should be) only one kind of soldier...a soldier plain and simple. Anyone who identifies themselves as a ____-Soldier isnt much of a soldier and should be shown the door/released from service. It is a dangerous and destructive distraction from the work at hand (killing our enemy and breaking their stuff). I am living this hell. I have been in service with the Marines for 24 years and am demoralized by the actions of this administration. It should be a non-issue, but because of soldiers like this and other activists on the “inside” it isnt.
” What the heck is going on here? “
The people booing recognized the attack on our military and American Culture that the gay soldier represents and voiced their disgust.
I have no respect for any sexual perverts, whether they are soldiers or congressmen or teachers or preachers. I refuse to apologize for rejecting the homosexual agenda - anywhere and everywhere.
If you can't tell the difference between a respectable soldier and an embarrassment to the uniform, you are a moral castrato and your opinion is worthless.
Honor apart from morality does not exist.
I respect people for the entire content of their character, not merely their choice of job.
What if it were a Muslim soldier saying the US military is killing innocent Muslims all over the world?
Am I allowed to boo him?
“As a soldier, he deserves the respect of those whose lives he is defending with his own. “
Nope. No defending fudge-packers. He wasn’t booed for military service. THAT would be a Democrat debate!
He was booed for wanting fudge-packers to be allowed to openly parade their perversion in the military. He was booed for believing a guy stuffing his cock into another guy’s butt is the same as marriage. He was booed for violating natural law, for it doesn’t take much sense to realize that a man’s penis wasn’t meant for another man’s anus.
If the soldier had asked for approval of screwing little boys, or dogs, or having 4 wives, would you say we still need to applaud him?
