Navy Celebrates Diversity! Names Ship After Gay Sexual Predator

What a disgrace. The Navy is celebrating their so-called diversity by naming an oil tanker for famed gay activist, Harvey Milk. It’s true that Milk served in the Navy. But just serving doesn’t mean a ship should be named after you. He was an uber corrupt politician in San Francisco as well.

I agree with the Family Research Council’s Peter Sprigg: “Milk is famous only for winning one election, being murdered ― and having sex with men.” Sprigg made that statement after Milk was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2009. Your sexual preferences should not elevate you to icon status, especially when your legacy includes allegations of being a sexual predator.

From the Conservative Post:

The late gay rights leader Harvey Milk already has schools, streets and parks named in his honor. Soon, a U.S. Navy ship will join the list.

A Navy official said Friday that Navy Secretary Ray Mabus notified Congress earlier this month that a new fleet of replenishment oilers being built in San Diego will be named for Milk and five other civil and human rights icons.

The official spoke on the condition of anonymity because a public announcement is expected in the near future.

More than two decades before he became one of the first openly gay candidates elected to public office, Milk spent four years in the Navy, first as an enlisted man and then as an officer in San Diego.

He was serving on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors when a former political colleague assassinated him and Mayor George Moscone at City Hall in 1978.

The GLBT Historic Task Force of San Diego County and former U.S. Rep. Bob Filner wrote Mabus in 2012 to suggest Milk as a fitting subject for a ship name tribute.

The news that Mabus had granted the request first was reported Thursday by U.S. Naval Institute News.

Milk’s life was littered with drug use, sexual exploits and lies. He became famous as an LGBT activist and then was assassinated while in office in San Francisco. Again, that does not make you a hero.

The world is on fire with Islamic terrorism across the globe. America’s political parties are fatally fractured and our Republic is on the verge of collapsing. Just about every economy on the planet is imploding and we are about to have a depression greater than any before. Globalists and Marxists are running wild and we stand on the precipice of World War III. And what does the Navy concentrate on? Naming an oil tanker after a corrupt political deviant. #Priorities.
