Oliver North Warns of Pedophile Danger if Military Gay Ban Repealed


In a Sean Hannity segment, Oliver North warns of NAMBLA members entering the U.S. military if "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" is repealed, Think Progress reports.

Says North: "Barack Obama now intents to treat [our soldiers] like lab rats in a radical social experiment, and it can be very, very detrimental. In other words, this isn’t about rights. This isn’t about fairness. It’s all about national security. And apparently, Mr. Obama has forgotten it. Now, here’s what’s next. NAMBLA members, same-sex marriages. Are chaplains in the U.S. military going to be required to perform those kinds of rituals? Do they get government housing?"

  2. Garbage. When are these nuts (and the SCOTUS is among them) going to realize there is a VAST VAST difference between pedophiles and gays???

    Did anyone ask Ollie if straight marriage means it's okay if his pre-teen daughter marries a 50 something year old man who only wants to steal her innocence?

  11. I wonder why only Fox will give him a platform? Oh yeah, the other networks have at least a few grains of discretion.

  12. I wonder why Fox didn't have Sheperd Smith interview Ollie.

  13. MEMO FROM A CANADIAN: Yes it is an experiment, but the experiment has already been conducted, proved SUCCESSFUL, and validated! Britain, France, Canada, and Israel all have openly gay service members serving in the most volatile areas on earth (alongside US troops), and collectively have not had a SINGLE negative incident. Not one.

  16. Dear Mr Oliver North,

    Oh, get off your goat you aging turd. Your assertion is a vile slur on the gay community. Are you just as concerned about heterosexual pedophiles who dot the landscape? Has allowing heterosexuals in the military brought about pedophilia in the ranks? I doubt it. Maybe you ought to get back with Fawn Hall or whatever her name was. She might knock some sense into you.

  17. Jessica H. Christ! Apparently incapable of even understanding the unfortunate age tastes of the NAMBLETTES which, therefore, makes his associating them with DADT repeal ludicrous [he must have been thinking aboutt the Boy Scouts...REALLY thinking?], Olive is sounding even nuttier today than when she allegedly "ran around naked, babbling incoherently and waving a .45 pistol."

    Now one hesitates to quote one roaring asshole to indict another, but while the late legend in his own mind David Hackworth [he falsely claimed he was the "reputed model" for Col. Kurtz, the Marlon Brando character in the movie "Apocalypse Now," who was, of course, based on a Joseph Conrad novel] was a pompous prick on a stick who viciously opposed lifting the gay ban in 1993, calling gays a "third sex" who shouldn't even be allowed to work as civilians at the Pentagon even suggesting Clinton might be killed if he showed up on a military base, he seems to have done a great sketch on Olive called "Drugstore Marine" for "Playboy" in 1994 [even if there's some evidence he could well have been describing his own lack of character]; excerpts below. Ya really got to read the full piece to get just how dark and dense Olive has been for a lonnnng time. When it comes to homophobic histrionic hyperbole, Olive is a size queen.

    David Hackworth on Oliver North
    Source: Playboy, June 1994

    Abstract: North's career shows an undeniable streak of deceit and misuse of the trust of colleagues and the American public. His most significant betrayal was engineering the trade of arms to Iran for US hostages.

    LET ME TRY to describe Oliver North in a few fast bursts. He's a jackass. He is so preposterous that there is a temptation to laugh at him. He's smarmy, a flatter, a brownnoser. He's also a twisted impostor, a drugstore Marine with an apparent compulsion to bullshit just about all the time. But while he tries to fool people with his fantasies, he is also very easy to fool. He boasts that he was an can-do guy when he was in the White House, but the record spells no-can-do. North did terrible damage to the U.S. until he was caught. One thread runs through his performance--getting conned. The Iranians conned him, the contras conned him, the crooked arms dealers conned him and even Manuel Antonio Noriega conned him.

    North is also one of the most dangerous men in America today. I've talked with him only once, by telephone on Michael Jackson's radio talk show on KABC in Los Angeles. I had done my homework and wasn't surprised when North put on his usual act. By the time I debated him I had talked with dozens of Marines and soldiers who knew him, as well as with former National security Council staff colleagues. I had seen him on countless TV shows, had read about him in several books and hundreds of newspaper and magazine articles. "Does Oliver North Tell the Truth?" was the title of a June 1993 investigation in Reader's Digest. The writer, Rachel Wildavsky, presents a watertight case, providing names and dates and plenty of reasons why the answer to the headline is no. My own sources confirmed or amplified what Wildavsky reports: North "could not be believed--even under oath." One of his former colleagues is quoted as saying North "had trouble distinguishing between what was true and what he wished to be true."

    In almost 50 years of being around soldiers, I have bumped into my fair share of bullshitters, but Ollie would have to take the first-place ribbon. The fact is that North is the sort of guy who cringes at the truth.

    North was convicted on three different counts: for helping deceive Congress about the Reagan administration's trading arms to Iran for release of hostages, for destroying documents and for illegally accepting a home security system that was paid for by a government contractor (Richard Secord), whom North had brought into his operations. Now he claims he was "exonerated," which is another lie. An appeals court threw out the convictions on a legal technicality.

    North has a magic mouth. He's part natural politician and part huckster. He could sell camel shit back to the camels. He has the aura of a savior and he instinctively plays to his audiences. He wants to be looked upon as a military hero, the hairy-chested underdog who can save our country, a kind of leader stud who will follow the example of other warriors who continued to serve and defend our country after they took off their uniforms. North is a perversion of that great tradition.

    The fact that North invokes a war-hero image offends me and disgraces all the brave warriors who serve our country with honor, not deception. North is the sort of guy who could give war stories a bad name.
    Part of North's spiel is that he was a warrior who followed the orders of his masters--the lowly, good Marine who was the fall guy for the White House ratbags. Nazi generals used the just-following-orders plea when they explained their mass murders. The Uniform Code of Military Justice protects American soldiers from obeying unlawful orders.

    Retired Major General John Singlaub, a man well-known for his physical and moral courage, said, "To people all over the world Ollie North was a hero. But I knew better. There was a wide gap between the media image of Ollie North--the honest, loyal Marine--and the sordid reality of his true character and performance."

    Between 1969 and 1974 he spent most of his time in offices and classrooms and on training assignments. In late 1974 he again took charge of troops when he became a company commander, as a captain, on Okinawa. Just 29 days into the assignment, North--described to me by a follow officer who saw him at the time as an "emotional wreck"--surrendered his command.

    He returned to the U.S., where he spent as much as three weeks at Bethesda Naval Hospital for some deep-shrinking by psychiatrists. The episode is shrouded in mystery. North himself is vague about it in Under Fire, his autobiography published reports that parts of his medical record were expunged. Meanwhile, there have been published reports (which North never legally challenged) that provide details about the apparent nervous breakdown. In one account he ran around naked, babbling incoherently and waving a .45 pistol.

    He tirelessly shuffled papers, taught classes and for the last five years before Iran-contra exploded, worked as a presidential advisor on national security matters. In the White House his dangerous and destructive fantasies took on the hallmarks of megalomania, perjury, double-dealing and gullibility. He was still a serving Marine, but he wore civilian gear and his weapons during those five years were a word processor, a file cabinet and one mean shredder.

    According to one of his colleagues, North boasted that Ronald Reagan "loves my ass." North certainly brought the power of the White House to his projects. And for some of the worst people in the world it was a lucky day when Ollie walked in. He was an answer to the prayers of sleazebags from Panama City to Bierut. It was as if they had one of their own in the White House.”

  20. Wow --- just when you think this criminal who thought he could lie to Congress (and did) could not get any worse he goes on national TV and compares Gay Men to Pedophiles.

    The fact that we are not in the streets smashing in EVERY FOX NEWS window around the country proves we have been conditioned to accept this Bullshit from Corporate America.

    Disgusting as he ever was.

  21. He illegally sold weapons to Iran why would he be a respectable voice on our national security?

  22. I play a little game where I try to guess which post is written Leland Bedwell Trollovitch. I can always tell by at least the second sentence, and that saves me the time of reading his long-winded screeds.

    Poor dear has so-oooo much time on his hands. I can only assume he's either unemployed, has no social life, or both!

  23. WTF????????????????

    Where is his brain at?

    Really - how does one equate pedophilia with being gay? I could never figure this out! Most pedophiles are married with kids.

    In Canada, there hasn't been any increase in any sort of pedophilia since gays were OK'd to be in the military.

    How does this man come across with such fear-mongering, baseless drivel as that?

    It just astounds me that someone can be serious about something like this!

  24. Well they let lying treason un-American bastards like you in there, so it really couldn't be any worse.

  25. Nice attempt at a dodge there Grabbin-- you're post avoids the real issue entirely, namely that North is a lying criminal douchebag.
