According to the New York Post and Conservative Chicken Hawks, Marine Corps Legend Dan Daly is too "Girly"

Famous Marine Dan Daly twice won the Medal of Honor. Of the photos we have of Daly he is wearing a cover (that's the USMC name for hat for all the right-wing chicken hawks who never had the courage to serve) very similar to the one recently announced as a possible uniform change for female marines.

The New York Post, which declared JP Morgan Chase was being robbed at gunpoint by Uncle Sam when JP Morgan Chase was recently fined $13 billion for the bank's role in the Republican Grand Recession, has now declared Obama wants Marines to wear 'girly' hats.

The article continues with its' homophobia (girly= effeminate homosexual in right-wing parlance) and baseless bashing of President Barack Obama while also throwing in some good derision at the French; claiming the new version is so “girly” that they would make the French blush.

Should I point out that the 5th and 6th Regiment of the USMC currently wear French decorations with their Dress uniforms? Or would that be too girly since I used the word "Dress"?

The most important thing in America is that Right-Wing chairborne commandos, conservative chicken hawks, and anti-american Faux News drones be allowed to offer up their opinion about the Marines in specific, the President and the Nation in general, seeing as they never had the stones to actually enlist and put their asses on the line?

No matter the topic the always wrong, often insulting, and sometimes despicably evil conservative view must be heard otherwise you're being a biased liberal!

How many of these homefront Blame Barack Warriors know that Marines have more than one cover?

Personally, I never wore the "Barracks Cover" save for two occasions. Boot camp graduation on the parade ground and the Marine Corps Ball. Every other time when I was in "chucks" or the Service A I wore the garrison cap.

But, hey just like with umbrella-gate and every other poutrage faux scandal the Right has attempted to pin on President Obama, those screaming the loudest have no real knowledge of what they are talking about, no first-hand experience about what they are offended by, and are just making shit up.

Because the Marine Corps has released this official statement:
Recent headlines in the media have created confusion regarding a Marine Corps uniform item, the male dress cover. Some in the media have implied that the President of the United States directed a change in this dress cover.

Commandant of the Marine Corps Gen. James F. Amos said, “the President in no way, shape or form directed the Marine Corps to change our uniform cover.”
But, never let the truth get in the way of a good Right-Wing lie.

When Dan Daly wore that cover there were no WM's. Since then WM's have become a part of the USMC. The WM's adopted the Daily cover as theirs and it has been their cover ever since.

To force all Marines to wear what has become a woman's cover is not only stupid but insulting to those who will be forced to wear it. Or in other words, a progressive left wing fart bubble.

Oyez! Oyez! Oyez! Let it be proclaimed Far and Wide that the UMSC Girly Cover Truther Movement hath begun under the declarations of one Chickenhammer!

Let not the wearing of a similar cover by John A. Lejeune dissaude from your Truth!

Let not the ridiculous clucking of Chickenhawks whom have never served trouble your brain-housing group.

Let not the 35th Commandant of Marine Corps General Amos and his declaration that in no way did the President direct a change in the headgear for Marines stop you from your Quest!

Go Forth and proclaim the USMC Girly Cover Truth Movement!!!

Bras on their heads! Aarrrgghh!

If you'd ever served, Gene, you'd be OUTRAGED at the thought of panties doffed by the American Masculinity Brigade. But you haven't [wuss] and that's why you allow this emasculation to go on! I am terrified by the sound of squeaking balloons and crackling fire! A patriot! No more head-girdles!

I'd forgotten about the term "cover" for hat. I haven't heard that since I got out of the Navy a few decades ago.

As John Stewart pointed out, let's see these rightwingers walk up to a Marine and tell him his new cover looks girly.

The "sane" article ChickenHammer links to says "some complain it exudes a feminine air"... what idiocy. It isn't as if it has flowers on it or is pink. This is just another example of Right-wing stupidity.

So those are the new hats? I'm disappointed. After all the talk of them being "girly" or "French", I was expecting something a lot more fabulous.

I think they should re-do the whole dress uniform. Hire Lady Gaga to design it. Then we can get ChickenHammer to model it.

Dervish Sanders said...

I second Infidel's suggestion :)

ChickenHammer said...

Dervish, Infidel,

I just repeat what I read in mainstream news sources.

In regards to getting me to model a uniform for you; please, quit projecting. I don't think any less of you for your crossdressing fantasies. Just please respect that I don't swing that way.
