We need the next guy we put in charge of something to be vibrant in some way… we’ve already got a lot of Blacks running around everywhere, we got that bug-eyed dot-head bitch in charge of stopping racism… maybe we can get someone who is pathologically obsessed with other men’s anuses to run the army?
President Barack Obama on Friday nominated Eric K. Fanning to be secretary of the Army, which could make him the first openly gay secretary of a U.S. military branch.
The U.S. Senate must confirm Fanning before he can lead the Army.
“Eric brings many years of proven experience and exceptional leadership to this new role,” the President said in a statement. “I am grateful for his commitment to our men and women in uniform, and I am confident he will help lead America’s Soldiers with distinction.”
This historic move is one of many steps the Obama administration has taken to advance the rights of the LGBT community in the armed forces.
Fanning has served as acting under secretary of the Army since June, and before that, served as chief of staff to Secretary of Defense Ash Carter. Fanning also served as under secretary of the Air Force and deputy undersecretary of the Navy.
In a statement, Carter called Fanning an “excellent choice” to lead the Army.
The American Military Partner Association, a support group for the families of LGBT service members, also praised Obama’s decision.
“We are thrilled to see Eric Fanning nominated to lead the world’s greatest Army,” AMPA President Ashley Broadway-Mack said in a statement. “History continues to be written and equality marches forward with the nomination of an openly gay man to serve in this significantly important role. Fanning’s expertise and knowledge within the defense community together with his sensitivity to issues faced by LGBT service members and their families is why we urge the Senate to move quickly to confirm his appointment.”
Guys, at some point, I’m going to need to take, like, at least a three or four day vacation.
This stuff is starting to get to me.
Clock Boy really triggered me for some reason, while I was already struggling with “escaping the brutal civil war in Serbia.”
I need a break.
