(NationalSentinel) Military: The Commandant of the Marine Corps, Gen. Robert Neller, got an earful from senators on Monday over the burgeoning nude photo scandal that has rocked the service branch recently.
As CNN reported:
Testifying before the Senate Armed Services Committee, Gen. Robert Neller strongly condemned those who posted the photos to private Facebook groups like Marines United and other image-sharing message boards without the consent of the subjects.
Neller called on Marines with information about the lewd photos posted to the 30,000-member Marines United to come forward and help investigators identify specific individuals.
Among those grilling Neller was Sen. Kristen Gillibrand, D-N.Y., one of the U.S. military’s perennial pains in the neck. Calling his testimony “unsatisfactory,” this far-Left ‘champion of women’ who has never served a day in uniform proceeded to lambast an honorable man trying to clean up a mess that her party and her political ideology created.
“Have you actually investigated and found guilty anybody?” Gillibrand asked in reference to past and current cyber harassment cases. “If we can’t crack Facebook, how are we supposed to be able to confront Russian aggression and cyberhacking throughout our military?”
What a dumb thing to assume, let alone say. But one thing we’ll never hear is Gillibrand – or any other Alt-Left politician – admit that liberalism is killing military ethos.
The “progressive” pop culture in America has been racing towards the gutter for years. When it comes to sex, exploitation of sex, championing of sex, and sex on demand, the Left has been delivering – on time and without hesitation.
And who, pray tell, joins the military? The same young people who have been conditioned by the far Left to indulge every sexual whim and fantasy from their prepubescent years on.
Throw social media into that toxic mix and you get scandals like the one Neller is now dealing with.
Young people have always been hyper-sexual; as humans, we are at our most sexually active when we are young. Throwing young men and women together in a high-intensity military environment, in peak physical condition, and then expecting these mere mortals to ignore their sexual desires and tendencies is about as stupid as it gets.
But here we have far-Left politicians like Gillibrand – who seems to believe the military is just too “male” for her liking – imposing impossible parameters and standards of behavior on a culture that her political ideology helped corrupt.
Outraged by the sharing of naked female Marines online, senator? Be more outraged by the culture your side created and has perpetuated that created scandals like this one instead. And take some responsibility for it.

Back in the day, presidents and politicians once trusted career military professionals when they told them that experience and informed opinion dictated separate training, separate missions and sexually segregated units, in order for the military to accomplish its core mission of winning wars and protecting the country.
That ethos and culture has today been replaced by radical social engineering imposed by Left-wing ideologues who have no clue what they’re doing and don’t care to listen to anyone who does. So out of touch with reality is this grotesque equation we have an esteemed military professional like Gen. Neller being demeaned by a vacuous, empty-headed so-and-so like Sen. Gillibrand, a practitioner of the very political ideology that is destroying what he loves most.
But the genie is out of the bottle now, and it will take a major military disaster on the battlefield to drown out the Gillibrands in Congress while this era’s Pattons and Eisenhowers rise to the top and put things back to the way they ought to be – to what works.
And the blood will be on the hands of the Left, as usual.
