Gorka says military exists to ‘kill people and blow stuff up’ not ‘to be socially engineered’

“The military is not a microcosm of civilian society. They are not there to reflect America. They are there to kill people and blow stuff up. They are not there to be socially engineered. We want people who are transgender to live happy lives, but we want unit cohesion and we want combat effectiveness,” he told BBC Radio 4 on Friday.

      I posted this to Facebook last night before going to bed… Today I’ve got a 24hr ban.

      I won’t be able to get away with anything now… I’m on their radar, LOL!!! 😉

      It’s probably past time to stop supporting C*ck-Zucker’s little enterprise anyway…

    Now just watch some leftist idiots try to come up with some bullshit reasons why the military would actually be more cohesive and effective by accepting transgenders. You know they will.

  • Gorka shoots straight.

    “They are there to kill people and blow stuff up. They are not there to be socially engineered.”

    The left prefers fantasy.

    I don’t even see women, save pictures of the Kardashians and their associates, wear as much makeup as that precious drag queen wearing camo. Definitely a show stopper.

    I genuinely hope this move by the Trump administration will bring some sanity back to the debate about people suffering body dysmorphia or gender dysphoria. It is downright stupid, silly AND dangerous to pretend the psychiatrically disturbed can function in reality IF reality is adjusted to their special needs. Reality is not “made-to-measure”. Reality is what it is, and the LGBTQWERTY lobby and advocates need to wrap their heads around that.

    And LEAVE OUR KIDS ALONE !

    I’m not worried about TGs in the military, per se. The best estimates show that we have between 1,000 and 4,000 TG personnel on active duty. It’s hard to estimate, because most of them are staying hull down. I also suspect these are pre-transition people, so they need no surgical or chemical maintenance. By all accounts, they are serving just like any other GIs.

    I’m not concerned about people like the scare photo above, because those people will never make it through selection, anyway.

    For all of that, no one has a right to join the military. The military is not about being fair, or a social experiment. The military is not about providing free surgery for people. They won’t let you in if you need other kinds of surgeries. You can’t get in if you need a knee rebuild.

    The military is not about providing long term chemical, medical, or psychiatric maintenance. These types of services are not available on deployment, in the combat zone, or at sea. The provision of maintenance medicines cannot be guaranteed under those conditions. Similarly, the military will not accept personnel undergoing chemotherapy, hormone therapy, or dialysis.

    The decision point may be where the person is in transition. I see no insurmountable objection to accepting a person who has completed transition, provided they don’t need maintenance pharmaceuticals. We don’t accept people who need other maintenance meds.

    I see no insurmountable objection to someone who has not begun any transition, provided they don’t expect the military to support them with medical or chemical intervention toward their transition. They can transition on their own dime when they get out.

    It all boils down to availability. Availability is kinda a big thing with us. Everybody in the chain of command is necessary. If you are not there, your fault, my fault, nobody’s fault, the other people in your unit must pick up your load, and that is not acceptable.

    It is not about fairness. It is not about making people feel fulfilled. The battlefield is the most unfair place on earth. It is about military effectiveness.
