Sweet baby Jebus, where does one even start?

Yesterday Alabama Senator Tommy Tuberville was questioned as to why he voted against the confirmation of Air Force four-star General Charles Q. Brown to become The Chairman of The Joint Chiefs of Staff and his answer will make your jaw drop:

“I heard some things that he talked about, about race and things that he wanted to mix into the military,” Tuberville said.

“Let me tell you something. Our military is not an equal opportunity employer.”

“We’re looking for the best of the best to do whatever. We’re not looking for different groups, social justice groups. We don’t want to single-handedly destroy our military from within,” he said. “We all need to be one. It’s like a football team I coached. You can’t have different groups. Everybody’s got to be together to win. There’s no second place in war.”

What a moron.

Of course our military is an equal opportunity employer, chucklehead, and has taken great pride in being one since 1948 when President Harry Truman signed Executive Order 9981 integrating the U.S. Armed forces. The order set, in its first sentences, an agenda and clearly stated its goals so that even some eighty years later an ignorant racist cracker Senator from Alabamee could not possibly mistake it’s purpose.

“It is hereby declared to be the policy of the President that there shall be equality of treatment and opportunity for all persons in the armed services without regard to race, color, religion or national origin. This policy shall be put into effect as rapidly as possible, having due regard to the time required to effectuate any necessary changes without impairing efficiency or morale.”

Perhaps English is not Tuberville’s first language.

Our friend Ron Filipowski and his followers quite rightly roasted Tuberville on Twitter:


💯 💯 💯

My thought, exactly.



It is an embarrassment to Alabama, United States as a whole and The Republican Party in particular that a man so completely ignorant our history serves in the Senate.

But Republicans prove time and time again that they are beyond embarrassment and shame.

Help keep the site running, consider supporting.


  1. Of course the government is an equal opportunity employer…he has a job there…right? By the way if he’s so good at winning why didn’t his football teams win? Mack Brown at UNC has a natty…Where’s yours Dumbo???

  2. And the rest of the party, by not refuting his comments, agree 100%. They are just saying the quiet part out loud now. You’d think that SOMEONE in that party would have brass enough to stand up and say how wrong that statement is. Someone, anyone…..

  3. Ok, yes, technically there are certain things that keep people out of the military. These are physical and/or mental problems, a criminal record, I”m sure there are some other reasons but nowhere in the list of disqualifications is color, gender, and now sexual orientation. If you are in good enough physical health, reasonably capable of understanding things, and not a criminal, you’re pretty much in. So, you can’t be blind, deaf or dumb and serve. I guess we can see why tuberville is not a veteran being quite dumb.

    So, yes, to a minor extent tuberville is correct. Mostly however he is, as usual, dead wrong.

  4. A part of the armed forces have their cluster munitions, when needed, to be intelligently used as part of informed and planned military operations. By contrast, part of GOP-MAGA has a dumb cluster fu*k at their disposal, to be unintelligently used as part of their short sighted, ill-informed political strategy.

  5. So he believes that only white guys can/should serve? Oh wait, not white guys born to wealth or are children of elected officials. Hey MAGAs, that means that if Tumorville has his way, YOU get to be the ones to fill the ranks of our armed services. YOU get to be the ones who put your lives on the line in service to the country. Are you ready?
