Ollie North On Homosexuals In The Military: ‘NAMBLA Members Are Next’

While discussing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” with Sean Hannity, former Marine Corp officer and Fox News contributor Ollie North highlighted the weakness of his own argument by resorting to the same old tired bigotry, comparing homosexuality to organized pedophilia. In what he called a “stunning assault on the all-volunteer military” North slammed Obama for his attempt to allow gays to serve openly in the military, alleging, “Here’s what’s next: NAMBLA members, same-sex marriages,” seemingly unsure himself about the direction his case was headed. The president, he said, is treating soldiers “like lab rats in a radical social experiment.”

“This isn’t about rights, this isn’t about fairness,” North said. “It’s all about national security.” Hannity, meanwhile, attempted to temper the discussion while still agreeing with North, wondering why Obama would pursue “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” one early Clinton misstep, right after health care, and conjuring connections to the 1994 “revolution.”
