During his nationally syndicated radio show last Thursday, host Mark Levin slammed the Obama administration’s decision to allow women in frontline combat roles as “radical egalitarianism,” and asked whether Americans really want women fighting ISIS and Al Qaeda.
"Do we really want our women -- I am old school sorry -- do we really want our daughters, our sisters, our mothers, do we really want our women on the front lines of combat with genocidal maniacs like ISIS, like Al Qaeda?" asked Levin. "I don’t think so! This is a very, very sad and dark day in America, no question about it.”
Below is a transcript of Levin’s comments:
“And now look, they’re destroying the United States military with all the social engineering. All the social engineering, and today, we learn the Secretary of Defense Ash Carter, he announces that women will now be able to serve in every single front line combat position. That is a radical extremist position that rejects complete reality.
“They don’t care about the United States military. Their poisonous politics, their poisonous ideology is ubiquitous. That’s why we’re in danger. That’s why people are dying -- from their liberal judges to their liberal prosecutors to their liberal jurors. …”
“... This Pentagon chief, this incompetent boob, this bureaucrat Ash Carter, obviously taking his direction from Obama, because Obama -- let me tell you what Obama’s doing. Obama’s looking at the horizon, at the horizon of government, at the horizon of government programs, at the horizon of policy, and he’s saying to himself, I’ve got another 13, 14 months.
“He’s a marxist in a candy shop. That’s what he is. And he’s there, ‘Nobody’s gonna stop me. By time courts catch up with me it’ll be too damn late. The Republicans are rolling all over the place. Nobody’s going to stop me. I can do whatever treaties I want without using treaties. I’m pushing global warming. I’m pushing gun control. I’m pushing the upending of American citizenship. I am just driving the agenda.’
“And there they are at the defense department. So, this hack Ash Carter said today -- better name would be ‘Ass Carter’ -- order the military to open all combat jobs to women, all combat jobs to women, rebuffing a request by the Marine Corps to exclude women from certain front line combat jobs.
“All front line combat jobs, all combat jobs are now going to be open to women. Are we proud of ourselves ladies and gentlemen, this radical egalitarianism that seeps through everything, whether it’s our economy or what have you?
“Do we really want our women -- I am old school sorry -- do we really want our daughters, our sisters, our mothers, do we really want our women on the front lines of combat with genocidal maniacs like ISIS, like Al Qaeda? I don’t think so! This is a very, very sad and dark day in America, no question about it.”
