Why Couldn’t The Trump Administration Defend Mark Green’s Nomination For Army Secretary??


There’s been surprisingly little coverage of the withdrawal, on May 5th, of the President’s nominee for Army Secretary.

The nominee was Mark Green, a Tennessee state senator with twenty years’ service in the U.S. Army, including a tour in Iraq. He’s a committed Christian. Trump nominated him for the Army Secretary post on April 7th.

The reason for his withdrawal, before confirmation hearings have even begun, was opposition from the homosexual lobbies and from Muslims — an unlikely alliance, when you think about it, but of course all differences are set aside when there’s the opportunity to crush a white male Christian heterosexual.

Here are some samples of Mark Green’s heterodoxy, all of them uttered at a speech he gave last September to the Chattanooga Tea Party. You might want to have your smelling salts close at hand before hearing them.

  • Sample, quote: “We need to take a stand on the indoctrination of Islam in our public schools.”
  • Sample: Green speculated that a rise in Latinos registering to vote was due to them, quote, “being bused here probably.”
  • Sample, quote: “If you poll the psychiatrists, they’re going to tell you transgender is a disease.” (Green is medical doctor.)

I note in passing that the previous Secretary of the Army — not counting the Acting Secretary Robert Speer, appointed in January when President Trump took office — the previous guy, Eric Fanning, appointed of course by Obama, was openly homosexual. Fanning was a career bureaucrat who, unlike Mark Green, had never served in the military.

As so often nowadays, the sad thing about this story is the spinelessness of the Trump administration in refusing to stand up for their nominee.

All right: with the buggery brigades and the Muslims testifying against him, likely the cucks and commies on the Senate Armed Services Committee wouldn’t have confirmed him, but why not at least put up a fight?

Shame on the administration for their cowardice here. We’re talking about the military, for crying out loud.
