MUST SEE: Veterans explain exactly why transgenders shouldn't be allowed in the military

StaffRebel Columnist

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg continues to live to live in a world populated by unicorns and rainbows. After President Donald Trump tweeted that transgenders would no longer be allowed in the military, Zuckerberg whined on Facebook “Everyone should be able to serve their country -- no matter who they are.”

While many progressives stood against Trump's decision, several veterans have stepped up and shared why they approve of the ban.



In one video, Army Veteran John Burk puts everything in perspective. Check it out.

His Instagram post states the following, “It’s your choice to do with your body what you wish, but the military is not there to serve as a social experiment, nor pay for transgender transitioning cost related to hormone replacement therapy, or sex change operations.”

“The military serves as a fighting force that guards this nation and does not need to be burdened with the extreme changes it would be required to undergo to accommodate such a small demographic,” he adds. “Let's also not forget that gender dysphoria is still classified as a psychological disorder, and within the trans community there is a 61% suicide rate which is a clear indicator of psychological issues.”

Another army vet, J.R. Salzman voiced his thoughts on Twitter saying, “I served in Iraq in 2006. For the first five months I was on a 12 man firebase out in the middle of nowhere in the desert.”

“Everyday was Groundhog Day. Wake up and do the same patrols, the same shifts, every single day. It was so damn hot. 150° in the gun trucks. Tracer fire would go overhead occasionally at night. IED's on the road were a daily threat. We got resupplied food every 8 days. QRF was an hour away. After they made the minimum three gun truck rule after the guys got kidnapped, life got harder.”

The series of tweets continued, “The stress of being out there and doing the same job every single day eats away at you. The younger guys had problems with that overtime. Any tiny little personal issue they had suddenly became a mountain. And that shit came out on that fire base. And they snapped mentally. After stepping on each other's nuts living in the same can for five months, guys were at each other's throats. The stress made it worse. Guys would literally snap over a dear John letter. Their personal issues came out and they were instantly combat ineffective.”

He went on, “Now take someone confused about whether they are a man/woman. Take those psychological and emotional issues and put them in that environment. Take someone who is right off the bat not uniform or part of the same team. Give them special treatment because of their identity. Take that person, put them in that stressful war environment and watch what happens. It's a fucking ticking time bomb.”

Salzman added that a warzone is the last place someone transitioning should be, “You have to be incredibly tough mentally, physically and emotionally. War is not a fucking video game. It tests every ounce of your being. You can't teach someone to be a fearless warrior in a fucking PowerPoint. You either have it or you don't.”

“War is no place for people who are mentally, emotionally, or physically confused or in turmoil. You have your shit together, or you don't. And if you don't, you'll just get people needlessly killed. Political correctness has absolutely no place in the military.”

He concluded by saying, “Enough for now. This one armed veteran has a business to run. Unlike Iran, the country that took my arm, Obama didn't pay me millions.”

But yea, Mark Zuckerberg really knows what he's talking about.

Bravo Zulu, is there an Ombudsman at Veteran’s Affairs? Is there a re-consideration committee you can appeal to?
If not, do you need legal assistance in order to sue the government? If so, please e-mail Ezra to explain your situation. Perhaps, a crowdfunding initiative could be sponsored by Rebel.

Appreciate all you have written – I am no longer interested – it is not worth the effort – others need the help more than I do.

The feds are not interested and I am still being a pain in their backside – if anything , it gives me great pleasure to annoy them.

You be safe.

Correction: the last six months or so of his agenda. Sorry

Jan G, I think you are right, Obama pushed trans agenda the 6 months or so of his Presidency. Not sure if there was a time limit to his edicts or not.

(I should have listened to this story before I wrote comments on the other trans story.)
I heard it, can’t remember where, that the Obama transgender policy was only good for one year and to be determined at that time if it would proceed. Did anyone else hear this too or did I misunderstand?
Therefore, Trump would simply not be proceeding with this policy.

Bravo Zulu said: I wonder how I can get some cash for the injuries I sustained during my service?
Tell Trudeau you killed an American in battle, and he will see to it that you are rewarded handsomely.

I could not agree more.

Now – I wonder how I can get some cash for the injuries I sustained during my service?

LOL

Already turned down twice – so I think I will simply keep on keeping on.

I note that Suckerberg does not have a military record. He is still young enough to volunteer and perform active service. I wonder why he does not…actually I don’t wonder.

Why does Zuckerberg brown shirt, think anyone cares a flying fig what he thinks about anything. He is a zombie from hell, and Merkel’s new boy toy. He is mentally deranged and has visions of grandeur that far, far outweigh his importance, or talents. Another narcissistic up and coming communist monster.

Should read:
“Enough for now. This one armed veteran has a business to run. Unlike Khadr, the radical Islamist that took my comrade’s life, Trudeau didn’t pay me millions.”

Hear, Hear!
Reasonable, sensible and fair. Just a few years ago such an idea would be thought of as unimaginable. So glad to hear this news. At least some standards will be kept.
Gender dysphoria is a mental disorder. Mental disorders disqualify you from serving in the military. Makes sense to me.

Great T shirt. where can I get one of those?

Excellent report.
I completely agree and have nothing else to add.
