Coulter frets ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ repeal: ‘Let’s hope the Germans don’t reconstitute an army’

It’s not exactly the most politically correct position to take on the recent repeal of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy, but conservative pundit and author Ann Coulter didn’t shy away from voicing it.

On Wednesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Red Eye,” Coulter took a few shots at the repeal and one of the supporters of the repeal, The New York Times.

“Well, that is the position of the new Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman, Liza Minnelli,” Coulter said. “It will not affect morale of the troops or troop readiness. I just insist that it go both ways. If we’re going to have gays in the military, I demand that there be heterosexuals at The New York Times.”

According to the firebrand commentator, the repeal was done in the name of diversity.

“Oh why can’t we have diversity? That’s my other point. The Marines don’t want it. The Army doesn’t want it – the ones who actually do the fighting, as opposed to the translators like Bill [Schultz, ‘Red Eye’ co-host],” Coulter said. “Why can’t you have diversity?  We have to worship at the altar of diversity in every other area of society. Why can’t the Marines have their rules and have the gay Marines take Bill?”

Later in the show, “Red Eye” ombudsman Andy Levy, who supported the repeal, challenged Coulter on her opinion. He countered that even though this policy was decided upon by civilians in Congress that may not have expertise on the military, it is still an essential part of American democracy for civilians to control the military.

“All of these people who aren’t in the military telling us what telling us what is going to work in the military and how the troops work together — it would be like allowing this table to vote of the choreography of ‘Chicago,’” Coulter said. “Why can’t we have diversity?”

Coulter went on to argue in language that was sure to stir the pot that DADT repeal would ultimately be harmful to military effectiveness.

“Just hope the Germans don’t reconstitute an army,” Coulter said. “When we’re putting girls and gays in the military, we are not taking the military seriously.”

“I’m going to move on, other than – that’s just utterly ridiculous,” Levy replied.

    The only good thing about the repeal of DODT is that gays now won’t be able to get out of serving in the military like before, if they didn’t like serving after they joined they could out themselves and they would be kicked out..

    now that option is gone to them and they are stuck for the full term.

      I’m thinking to myself if we were in other countries, we would all, right now, all of us together, . . . would go down to Washington and we would stone [Republican U.S. Representative] Henry Hyde to death! We would stone him to death! Wait! . . . Shut up! No, shut up! I’m not finished. We would stone Henry Hyde to death, and we would go to their homes and we’d kill their wives and their children. We would kill their families.” — Alec Baldwin

      Talibangential… If you are going to start quoting people you need to check your side first.

    Terry Schappert who is in the U.S.Army Special Forces who has served 3 tours in Iraq was on Red eye as well and had some excellent incites into the possible effects of the reversal of DADT in combat situations. Check it out!

    Anne Coulter is a nut. We can not allow her to speak for us.

    Maybe we should be like IRAN…Amadinejad says ” we have no homosexuals in Iran”. End of problem. Lets be honest, the demorats have always HATED the MILITARY( CLINTON AND GORE anyone?!), and OBAMA the ULTRA-LEFTIST/SOCIALIST/SOON TO BE COMMIE will do anything that goes AGAINST MAINSTREAM AMERICA(he’s pro-illegals for votes, he pushed obamacare inspite of 70% disapproval, he will soon switch to pro gay marriage, he is anti-anything that is pro-America). DADT was PERFECT(if you are gay keep it to yourself, besides, gayness has nothing to do with anything other than same sex sex!), from me, a Vietnam combat vet! The military is not a showcase for FLAMERS! The military is there to 1)protect America 2) kill the bad guys 3) break things, even though this assinine government we are now stuck with has other ideas.

      Big baddass gay guys are now able to 1)protect America 2) kill the bad guys 3) break things..without fear of retribution of their sexual preference. You should be over the moon.

      The one thing I agree about is the suspicion people have since this move came from the left. It’s true the left is dangerous and they often have ulterior motives.
      However in this particular case, more individual liberty can only make us stronger. This is a bipartisan issue for most people. The religious right and the hard left have demagoged it to death unfortunately.

      Gay men or women are not above the military code of conduct and anyone who says different is not telling the truth. The military has their own court systems and fraternization codes will be upheld.

        Nice little insurance policy, too should push ever come to shove.

    Anne Coulter has quite the low opinion of our military’s soldiers.

  • truebearing

    Let me take this opportunity to point out to the idiot left and the HomoNazi contingent that Coulter made these comments on a show that intentionally encourages extreme statements for the purpose of humor. Red Eye’s theme is poking political correctness in the eye. Don’t get your panty hose in a bundle over comedy.

    She’s basically right, too.

  • talibangelical

    She has very big Adam’s apple, even for a guy.

    Remember when (s)he lashed out at widows of 9/11 victims? That was great.

    I love watching her sad career disappear, trying to make headlines on overnight comedy shows.

    Seriously right-leaning-folks, does she really represent anything you stand for? She is a pathetic disaster of a human being.
