Obama Nominates First Openly Gay Secretary of Army

WASHINGTON — President Obama is nominating Eric K. Fanning, a close civilian adviser to Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter, to be the secretary of the Army, an appointment that would make him the first openly gay secretary of a military branch.

Mr. Fanning has been the acting under secretary of the Army as the current secretary, John McHugh, prepares to leave his post. Mr. Fanning’s Defense Department jobs have spanned the services: He has served as Air Force under secretary, deputy under secretary of the Navy and deputy chief management officer of the Navy.

    A new avenue for affirmative action. Apparently the old Bob Hope joke about “making it compulsory” was prophetic.

      “I’ve just flown in from California, where they’ve made homosexuality legal. I thought I’d get out before they make it compulsory.”

    The US Army – now a fagtopia

    I have one word of warning for Fanning: Benghazi.

    Obama’s degradation of America continues unabated. I imagine the Gay Old Party will put up stiff resistance to this. Pardon the imagery.

      GOP will fall to their knees and beg forgiveness from Obama

      • Clink9

        I would love to know the dirt Obama has on these guys to keep them quiet.

        • mauser 98

          there must be knives out for him inside the military.. has to be some where.
          remember ROTC high heel training while back

          would love to know the dirt Obama & ValJar have on Boo Hoo Boner and McConnel

  • Clink9

    When are you people going to learn. The most important thing in the world is to promote men that prefer the friction of other men’s mouths and butts.

    • Millie_Woods

      I completely understand why these people have been reviled throughout history.

      … maybe the most important thing in Toronto…

      That’s why Wynne is pushing her homoerotic sex ed on little boys and girls to condition them for CAMH getting pedophilia deemed a mental Illnes from birth and only a crime when a child is harmed.

      These sick bastards from the 60’s poisoned the schools
      and took over the Government Unions .

  • Homo-affirmative action. Justice for the 2%, the rest be damned. Putin is laughing on his way to Syria.

    • Alain

      Doubt it is even 2%.

      But if those pilots were in an actual three-way crossdressing gang bang, they would have been untouchable.

  • J. Christopher Stevens was gay.

    • Gary

      He was, and yet GLAAD has been silent on Hillary tossing him the islamist homophobes that raped him and then hacked him up.

      Hey…. she wants to be President and what’s one less queer , after all…. liberal progressives and democrats have been silent over hamas murdering gays and Cuba that jailed for if they had AIDS.
      Hell…. ISIS is tossing queer’s from building roof tops and Obama reacts bty saying they aren’t true muslims.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    Something queer is happening to our government.

  • Drunk_by_Noon

    So a homo that has never been in the Army is best qualified to be secretary of the Army, because he’s a homo?

    Goodness, I hope that when Trump is our next President that all of these Obama appointees are disposed of immediately.
    Forget “don’t ask, don’t tell” but instead return to “homosexuality is incompatible with military service.”
    Kick ’em all out!

    He still has to be confirmed by the Senate, will the GOP stand up to a lame duck Obama this time?

    • Alain

      I doubt the Senate will.

    • Norman_In_New_York

      At the time I served, those caught engaging in homosexual activities were given an undesirable discharge. “Reason: For the good of the service.”

      • Alain

        Stands to reason, but then reason seems to have left the room some time ago in the West.

  • Minicapt

    “Okay boys, let’s get started. First, those curtains have to go!”


    • Alain

      And those uniforms, oh dear what shall we do about those?
