Perkins: ‘The Military Has Never Been About Equality’; It’s About ‘Fighting and Winning Wars’

Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council joined Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Thursday to discuss President Trump’s reversal of an Obama-era policy by banning transgender people from military service, the Obamacare repeal effort, and other news.
Asked about the issue of equality as regards Trump’s transgender ban, Perkins said, “The military has never been about equality; the military’s been about fighting and winning wars. I had to sweat it to get into the Marine Corps because I have flat feet.”

“The idea that excluding people is something new, that’s always been the process of the military,” added Perkins, citing several medical issues that can prevent an individual from serving in the armed forces.

Breitbart News Daily airs on SiriusXM Patriot 125 weekdays from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. Eastern.

    Finally, somebody who “gets it”!!

    The military is about defending the people, the nation as a whole, NOT about being equal or offering sex change surgery if you sign up- which is what it seems to have done the last few years under NObama. Seems his entire goal was to deconstruct America. He largely succeeded beyond anyone’s belief he could.

    Our Military is to fight our wars, and keep the peace. It is not for Social experiments. Many men are not able to be in the Military, and so that has to be accepted. We cant have men going into the military, to get surgery, to become women. The Citizen should not bear that expense. Keep this issue out of our Military, that is not the place for it.
