What the Jim Webb Debacle in Annapolis Is Teaching the Military

Via Billy

Jim Webb

Imagine you are a young midshipman at the U.S. Naval Academy processing the news that Jim Webb—Annapolis class of '68, recipient of the Navy Cross, former senator and secretary of the Navy, former member of the Annapolis faculty, bestselling novelist and acclaimed journalist—has been forced by political pressure to decline an award for distinguished alumni at your school this week.

The most widely cited reason for his political toxicity is an article he wrote in 1979 (side note: almost forty years ago!) in Washingtonian Magazine entitled "Women Can't Fight."

  1. The Daily Caller has a piece on women in the military in which most junior female officers recognize that gender integration is a social agenda. I do think that DACOWITS is a SJW organization that should be dismantled. indyjonesouthere

    1. If I was a female, I would like to be treated exactly the way I treated them when I grew up. Open doors, stand when they come into a room, show nothing but the utmost respect, unfortunately the world has gone insane.

  2. Unlike most of them today, Jim Webb is " your daddy's Democrat". --Ron W

    1. Yes, he ran as a Democrat and quit rather than run again.

  4. In sixteen elections I have never voted for a Democrat. Webb would have been the first.

    1. Coming back from my military reunion in 2007 and passing through Virginia, I heard him say on the radio that Obama wouldn't take away our guns.

  5. Webb voted Yes on Obamacare, just like all the rest of them. Without his vote, America would not be saddled with this tyranny now.

    1. What a huge disappointment, needless to say.

    2. I was taken by his 1990 speech at the Confederate Memorial. http://www.jameswebb.com/speeches-by-jim/remarks-at-the-confederate-memorial

      I don't believe he was faking it.

    3. Not at all, reference his book and this speech is still on his site which says it all.

  6. "Women can't fight" but they sure can get pregnant.
    Unplanned pregnancies in the Navy are costing a fortune
    as they have to be sent back to port not to mention short
    on 'man' power. What a debauchery.

    1. Sure can. I talked to two female Marines back home and they said the girls meet the men under the outside staircases at night to screw. Who wouldn't thunk'....? :)

  7. The smarter ones knew this would be the outcome but call
    them a name and they back down. Billy Graham did not allow
    women to work in the offices because he knew where it
    would lead - temptation.
