    Trey Gowdy on transgenders in the Military

    This was sent to me by way of e-mail so I can't verify the authenticity but if true, it certainly is a good response and one that some of us could use if the need arises. GHQ
    ************************************************** ****

    MILITARY SERVICE REQUIREMENTS



    Trey Gowdy, former South Carolina Congressman, responded to a question from a CNN reporter about the ban of transgenders from joining the U.S. armed forces. As Trey typically does so very well, he nailed it rather succinctly. He does not mince words.


    Question: “How can President Trump claim to represent all U.S citizens, regardless of sexual orientation, when he banned transgenders from joining the military? Isn't that discrimination?”


    Trey Gowdy's Response : “ Nobody has ‘a right’ to serve in the Military. Nobody!
    What makes you people think the Military is an equal opportunity employer?
    It is very far from it - and for good reasons - let me cite a few:

    The Military uses prejudice regularly and consistently to deny citizens from joiningfor being too old or too young, too fat or too skinny, too tall or too short. Citizens are denied for having flat feet, or for having missing, or additional, fingers.” He went on to explain: “By the way, poor eyesight will disqualify you, as well as bad teeth. Malnourished? Drug addiction?


    “Bad back? Criminal history? Low IQ? Anxiety? Phobias? Hearing damage? Six arms? Hearing voices in your head? Self-identification as a Unicorn? Need a special access ramp for your wheelchair?


    “Can't run the required course in the required time? Can't do the required number of push-ups?


    Not really a morning person? and refuse to get out of bed before noon? All can be legitimate reasons for denial


    “The Military has one job: Winning Wars. Anything else is a distraction and a liability .


    Did someone just scream? That isn't Fair?
    War is VERY unfair; there are no exceptions made for being special or challenged or socially wonderful.


    “ YOU must change yourself to meet Military standards and not the other way around.


    “I say again: You don't change the Military - you must change yourself.
    The Military is not about being fair, it is about taking advantage of others and about winning.


    “The Military doesn't need to accommodate anyone with special issues.


    The Military needs to Win Wars and keep our Country safe - PERIOD!


    “If any of your personal issues are a liability that detract from readiness or lethality...

    Thank you for applying and good luck in future endeavors.


    “Any other questions?”

    It, apparently, a comment that appeared on an unofficial FB page in 2017 or so.

    Now, wether you agree with the statement is another thing. But it cannot be attributed and/or sourced back to Trey Gowdy.

    Trying to think of why he's not in Congress now. I seem to remember some weird idea about honesty and voluntarily observing term limits.

    I used to get emails from Trey Gowdy, probably because I look at conservative websites....I guess?

    He was on one of those, Forensic Files, type shows, a while back.

    Sign up, travel to far flung places on the globe, meet new people and kill them. Play with guns and bombs.

    Damnit, I tried getting in the Army when I was 28, in 2008. No dice, my stupid youth.
    Yep, I'd wrap that in bacon! KEEP AMERICA GREAT, TRUMP 2020

    if our military would only train to shoot while at a full run, others also at a full run, our effectiveness would increase over ten fold. then we realy could go on the offensive sporting odds of 30-1 agin us.
