President Trump recently initiated a ban against transgenders serving in the military.
Even Americans are divided over his most recent decision–the left is furious he would not include the gender confused, while the political right is praising his efforts to focus on those who are best fit to serve the country.
Now one veteran just proved once and for all the gender confused have absolutely no place in the military.
Combat veteran J.R. Salzman recently tweeted there was absolutely no place for transgenders in the thick of war.
The Daily Caller reported:
For Salzman, the intensity of the war theater is so great that many of the men who were not even suffering from mental issues often snapped, particularly the younger troops. Due to service members being in such close quarters with each other, “any tiny little personal issue they had suddenly became a mountain.” Salzman further pointed out that introducing servicemembers to the team who are “mentally, emotionally, or physically confused or in turmoil” will inevitably lead to people getting killed.
Transgenders in that environment are a “ticking time bomb.”
“Political correctness has absolutely no place in the military,” he said.
From a retired military veteran’s point of view, his argument is unwavering.
The White House will soon release more information about the ban, but it is believed to be the result of budgeting concerns.
The Daily Caller continued:
Trump announced Wednesday that he would not “accept or allow” transgenders serving openly in the military, citing medical costs and general disruption. White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Wednesday afternoon that the details of the ban still need to be worked out between the White House and Pentagon, with the Pentagon taking a leading role. She also noted that after Trump made his decision on the ban Tuesday, Secretary of Defense James Mattis and other members of Trump’s national security team were immediately informed. However, many other Pentagon officials were left totally in the dark until Trump delivered the news on Wednesday morning.
As Wictor explains, “transgendered people have become political props used by angry leftists attempting to destroy everything they oppose.” They were also about to cost the U.S. taxpayer heinous amounts of money – perhaps $8.4 million a year – because, thanks to legislation introduced last year by President Obama, the Defense Department was liable for the cost of the gender reassignment surgery on any soldier whose ability to serve was “adversely affected by a medical condition or medical treatment related to their gender identity.”
Not only were these transgender sensitivity policies burdening the military with unnecessary costs but they were also making it less effective. Wictor: “Talk to people who served in 2016. They’ll tell you that they spent a huge amount of time in sensitivity training seminars.”
While social activists fight for “transgender rights”, real soldiers are needed to fight overseas to protect our domestic interests.
