Max Blumenthal and Thomas Shomaker give us a new glimpse into the world of some more white doodz, young college Republicans. Postpone eating until after viewing the video.

  1. Oh. My. Gawd.

    If the stakes weren’t so truly serious, they’d be embarrassing. The doofus who isn’t enlisting because, “…if somehow I become, like a really good, like, speaker, and stuff like that, that’s what would convince me not to join…”? Umm, yeah. Pack your bags and polish those boots, buddy. Since you’re Officially Not Gay, and you’re decidedly NOT a good speaker, you can plan on jumping on the next plane to boot camp. I did it, and so can you!

    “We need to fight terrorism ‘over there.’ And by ‘we’, I mean somebody else, not me, because I’m far too important to join the military. And I have a bad knee. And I’m in college. And I, er, well, you know… that’s somebody else’s job, right?”

    Sickening, thanks for the warning. I will now go to lunch and try to eat my cookies without tossing them.

  2. Bradley posted a link to this video yesterday, and suggested we come up with lists of things we find more useful than college republicans. So far, the lists include things like The Collected Poetry of Orrin Hatch, chlamydia, and A Very Morrissey Christmas Album.

    Hey! LOL.

    No, shan’t.

  5. Liss, I know, right? I thought of you immediately.

  6. Goldfishy- I saw this over at Monkey Muck and commented there about the same guy you did, but I actually started laughing at the guy. He is made to be a Marine, officially not gay and all, he can’t speak English for goodness sake. Sorry if I offend any marines, but every marine I have ever met is dumber than a box of rocks and incredibly homophobic and misogynistic.

    FWIW brilliant Marines do exist. I’ve met one (although he was also borderline insane, but anyway……). Sen. Webb was a Marine, wasn’t he? My uncle also was a jarhead, and he’s no dope (& loathes this administration every bit as much as the rest of us).

    The video’s a nice piece of polemics, but after all, the chosen topic really is shooting fish in a barrel, isn’t it? 😆

    All those guys who said, “Yeah, I’ve been thinking about enlisting after college,” have no desire whatsoever to do it. They wouldn’t be caught dead in a uniform.

    And also to the people who said they have health issues, how do they know they wouldn’t be accepted into the Armed Forces? Did they actually go to a recruiter, and then on to MEPS and a real physical, where they were told by the military they couldn’t join up? I doubt it. It’s also a pretty well known fact that you can lie, I mean, distort the truth ;), at your physical to get past the physical problems that might keep you from the military. If these guys wanted it that bad, they could join up in a heartbeat. They just don’t want it, since it’s someone else’s problem.

    That probably also applies to the one who wasn’t accepted at the Air Force Academy. Somehow my guess is they aren’t as picky about the enlisted forces (especially now that so far this year some 11% of the enlisted army recruits have criminal records) as they are at the academies.

    This is very true, but that guy also might have just wanted the “free” tuition break you get when going to the academies. And besides, if you look at any Academy class, a large number of people are prior-enlisted, so getting into the Academy after enlisting is very attainable if you make it your goal. But as someone who was accepted at an Academy from HS, I will say it is fairly hard to get into. It’s pretty much something you have to be gunning for a few years prior to applying.
