I guarantee you Al-Qaeda and others around the Muslim world–99% of whom are bent on destroying us–aren’t using feminism to pick a tiny chick (or any chick at all) as their Jihadist of the Year. But that’s essentially what the U.S. Army did in picking Sherri Gallagher as its first female “Best Warrior of the Year.” It’s demoralizing for our fighting men, especially since it’s clear she was picked solely because of female plumbing. The fact that the Army’s website touts her as its first female awarded this title makes it clear this was an affirmative-action-by-vagina pick. It’s the Jessica Lynch Bronze Star BS . . . all over again. Lynch did not deserve the Bronze Star, nor does Gallagher deserve this award. But they both have the essential element the politically correct forces running the military want: estrogen.
Gallagher might be able to beat me up and fight many men. I’d bet most male warriors would easily turn her into the first quickly dead female Warrior of the Year, in a mano-a-womano contest. She may be a great shot. I’ll give her that. But, at 5’4″, she’s tiny, and would be easily broken. Her size and gender aren’t her fault and shouldn’t be held against her, but to claim she’s the U.S. Army’s “Best Warrior” is simply absurd. The U.S. Army’s Best Warrior competition is described as the Superbowl for America’s top Army soldiers. Does a 5’4″ woman really even belong as a competitor, much less the title holder? It’s like giving a WNBA player the title of best player in the NBA, when none of those chicks could beat my brother’s junior high school basketball team.
While it’s all good and fine to show Muslims that we don’t treat women like they do, this is going overboard. It’s ridiculous. And it’s less about showing Muslims how to treat women, than preaching to men in the U.S. Armed Forces that women are not just equal to them but “better” in physical prowess. It’s just a lie. (And if we were really concerned with showing Muslims how to treat women, we’d forbid the hijab, niqab, and any other form of Muslim rag-garb for property-ettes. And we’d pretty much outlaw most Islamic law on divorces, wills, property, marriage, etc. Instead, we pander to and cower versus their views on women.)
A life-long friend of mine who recently retired from three decades in the U.S. Armed Forces writes:
What a crock, all 5′ 4″ of her. I cannot believe that there wasn’t some Ranger/Special Forces/Airborne/Infantryman that was not heads and shoulders above her, physically and in the events. Sure, she is a great shot, but can she carry a 150 pound ruck? I doubt it.
Click onto the links from the story and see the events. Hand to hand combat? Give me a break. This is just the kind of story that the feminazis use to argue that women should be in the combat arms.
Amen. It’s absurd to think this chick could beat anyone up but fellow girls and small men. That’s it, despite what the tough action chick movies tell us. It’s as realistic as tiny Angelina Jolie kicking the ass of beefy six-foot-tall men in “Salt.” It just ain’t gonna happen in real life. And the battlefield is real life–real life in which a 5’4″ chick will never be the U.S. Army’s “Best Warrior” or even it’s “5,372nd Best Warrior.”
My own cousin–who currently serves in the U.S. Armed Forces and is big, tall, and extremely physically fit (rappelling upside down from buildings)–earned the U.S. Air Force’s equivalent title to “Best Warrior” for airmen serving in Europe (he did tours in Iraq and Afghanistan). And he’d kick Ms. Gallagher’s butt.
This Thanksgiving, Sherri Gallagher might wanna give thanks that the Army fraudulently awarded her with its “Best Warrior” title off the battle field. Because on the battlefield, I’m thankful she isn’t the Best Warrior we have to offer. I’m thankful that on the battlefield, we have many Best Warriors far better than her.
And they all have a penis.
