Republican Sean Bielat Defends DADT: 'Men Under The Height Of 5 Feet, 2 Inches Can’t Serve — I Don’t See Anybody Protesting'
Republican Sean Bielat, who is battling Barney Frank for his seat in Congress, seems a little confused by either "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," homosexuality or both. Likely both.
Here's what he recently had to say about DADT to the Boston Herald:
“There’s no absolute right to serve. Men under the height of 5 feet, 2 inches can’t serve — I don’t see anybody protesting. Where are the people standing in front of the White House, the short guys standing in front of the White House? You don’t see it,” Bielat said. “We understand that there’s no absolute right to serve in all these other areas.”
The Herald puts it best in their response: "Hmm. ... On the other hand, vertically challenged people are not forced to pretend they’re tall, then drummed out once it’s discovered they’re short in spite of their service record."
Sounds like he's been taking lessons on homosexuality from Colorado GOP Senate candidate Ken Buck.
