The Marines are afraid of a few good men

That’s what Citizens United thinks. They claim that 40% of our current batch of leathernecks will quit the Corps because they’re scared of serving with gays and lesbians.

Sgt. Stryker must be spinning in his grave.

I’m thinking of the movie Invaders From Mars, when the Marine General says “Don’t worry son, the Marines aren’t afraid of a few Martians!” I guess they weren’t gay Martians.

The Commandant of the Corps isn’t afraid of Teh Gay:

Top Marine pledges to ‘personally lead’ gay integration

One week after warning the distraction of repealing “don’t ask, don’t tell” could risk Marines’ lives, Gen. James Amos, commandant of the Marine Corps, pledged to lead the effort to integrate openly gay Marines.

“I, and the Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps [Carlton Kent], will personally lead this effort, thus ensuring the respect and dignity due all Marines,” Amos said. “On this matter, we look forward to further demonstrating to the American people the discipline and loyalty that have been the hallmark of the United States Marine Corps for over 235 years.”


Marine Corps leaders have shown the most resistance to repealing the 17-year old law. Former commandant Gen. James Conway said the Corps’ “pretty macho” recruits set them apart from other services.

  1. Schwarzenegger says he’d like a job working for Obama

    Yeah, because he’s done such a wonderful job turning the Golden State into a third-world country.

    • HONK!

      And to think the Republicans were on a trip to Amend the Constitution so they could do for the country what Arnold has done for California! Anyone know where the Amend the Constitution for Arnold to be President is NOW???

      I guess it was a version of First the Foreign Bro and now Bro wants his payola for the Kennedy support given to Obama in case he can locate that darn committee to Amend the Constitution (Oprah will endorse it because his wife is his friend).

  2. Snark/

    but if gays and lesbians (and bisexuals, oh my) plus the seemingly truly terrifying transgendered can make big strapping dedicated intrepid tough straight manly soldiers fear for their delicate hindquarters, throw their
    strategic timing into the latrine and make them drop body parts— um, shouldn’t we strive to have an ALL lgbt military? I mean if they can scare the shit out of our dudes, shouldn’t they make the enemy crumble with terror?

  3. Jeez that Citizens United junk is funny. Maybe they’ll give it up eventually.

  4. Wow, that Citizens United group is nuts. They sure are afraid of some pretty silly things.

  5. So every potential enemy the US has will set to work recruiting its own Theban Band to scare the poor widdle Marines right off the field of battle. . …
