Ellen DeGeneres ATTACKS U.S. Military!

She should have thought twice before pushing this sort of rhetoric.

On Friday, the Trump administration instituted its long-contested ban on transgenders serving in the United States military. According to comedienne Ellen Degeneres, this constitutes “hatred.”

“Tomorrow, the President’s ban on transgender people serving their country goes into effect. This isn’t about budgets. It’s hatred,” Ellen said on her official Twitter account.

Ellen’s tweet included a link to a video message delivered by trans activist and military veteran Charlotte Clymer (formerly Charles) on CBS, in which he denounced the ban as a backward throwback to a time when the American military banned blacks, women, gays, and others.

The lies perpetuated about transgender people serving in the military have been thoroughly debunked and rejected by medical experts, by budget analysts, by military generals and admirals, by the vast majority of the American people, and, not least, by a history of Americans who have been barred from service and proved bigots wrong. They barred men of color. They barred women. They barred gay, lesbian, and bisexual people. We have been at this intersection of fear, cynicism, and outright ignorance many times, but we are always reminded that the only true threats to our country’s strength are hatred and an absence of character.

Last month, the Pentagon issued a strict policy that limits military service to people that identify by their biological birth gender. The military ban has faced scores of legal hurdles ever since President Trump announced the policy in 2017. In January of this year, a federal court ruled that lower courts had no authority to block it. The three-judge panel argued that considerable deference is owed to the executive branch on military policy, noting that the ban on transgenders was not a “blanket ban” and that it had been fine-tuned by Pentagon officials.

“The government took substantial steps to cure the procedural deficiencies the court identified in the enjoined 2017 presidential memorandum,” the panel said, adding that the partial ban “plausibly relies upon the ‘considered professional judgment’ of ‘appropriate military officials,’ and appears to permit some transgender individuals to serve in the military.”

The finalized version of the ban on transgenders disqualifies from service “transgender persons with a history or diagnosis of gender dysphoria,” and specifically those who “may require substantial medical treatment, including medications and surgery,” except in “certain limited circumstances.”

Transgenders currently serving in the military are also placed under a strict code of conduct. According to a memo obtained by ABC News earlier in March, transgenders currently enlisted will be allowed to serve only “if they adhere to the dress and grooming standards of their biological gender,” permitting secretaries to give waivers only on a “case-by-case basis.” Transgenders serving in the military will also no longer be provided with medical transition surgeries.

At the time of the ban’s announcement in 2017, a viral video featuring an Army veteran explained that people with gender identity issues should not serve in the military, arguing that it should not be used as a “social experiment.”

“It’s your choice to do with your body what you wish, but the military is not there to serve as a social experiment, nor pay for transgender transitioning cost related to hormone replacement therapy, or sex change operations,” said the veteran. “The military serves as a fighting force that guards this nation and does not need to be burdened with the extreme changes it would be required to undergo to accommodate such a small demographic.”

  1. I served in Naval Amphibious Forces on the USS Eldorado AGC-11. We were at sea most of the time. It was tense. I will never understand women on warships.

    1. They are there because Bill Clinton wanted them there – along with homosexuals serving under DADT. It was a payoff to them for helping him win the presidency.
      They are there because Barack Obama wanted to diminish our military capabilities by forcing the services to accept openly gay, lesbian and transgenders homosexuals. He promoted officers based on their willingness to accept his agenda. Neither president ever served, neither is a patriot.

  2. Nor will I understand it. Ships were not built to accomandate women, because women required a number of things that men do not and it has to be tense if a Trans man thinks he is a woman but still has a penis and occupies places with women, or a woman thinks she is a man and accupies the same places that are for men but does not have a penis, it has to be tense. Nothing about this sort of thing makes sense.

  3. I would love to see this ignorant b**** laying in the jungle in the middle of the night waiting for the attack which you know is coming and having her life depend on the people next to her who can’t decide whether they are male or female and their attention is NOT focused on the situation at hand. If they can’t make a decision about their gender who the he** are they going to make the snap decisions it takes in combat. The dirtbag obama tried to turn our military into his own little sissy girl experimental society— Thank the good Lord we have a president who is changing that.

  4. When I joined the Military there was a question on the admittance form that asked “Are you a homosexual”. If you answered you where not admitted. When in the hell did that change. It should remain a requirement that you are what you are born as. No exceptions. If you didn’t admit you where a homo and got caught doing “unnatural sex things” you where out. That should not have ever changed!

  5. If every woman married a woman and every man married a man,,, then that would be the end of the world. Seriously, how smart do you have to be to figure that out, Not Ellen take the rest of the trannys and fags and crawl back under your rock. Its all common sense Elly. Now its plain english .

  6. Transgender in the military is way too costly and they are doing it so that they can get their change surgery paid by the government. That is not fair and it’s an added expense we don’t need. Having them in the service, eyeing you or making a pass is not funny. I remember one that kept hounding me to join them. I don’t want it, don’t need it and just want to be left alone. it gives me the creeps. They should stick to their own kind. We’re fighting a war…don’t need any romantic interests involved.

  7. Ellen is wrong wrong wrong, and so is Clymer. Clymer’s comments are from a personal desire. Ellen’s are from ignorance. Further no one should expect the military to use expensive resources for a trans change. That is personal and should be taken care of on one’s own time and one’s own money, out side of the military.

  8. I’m somewhat surprised that Ellen DeGeneres attacked our military the way she has. These brave men and women fight for and many give the ultimate price for our freedoms. Many end up with missing limbs and have psychological disorders, etc. all because they went to war to keep the United States and the American people secure and safe. Clearly that doesn’t mean anything DeGeneres.

  9. Question: How can President Trump claim to represent all U.S citizens, regardless of sexual orientation, when he banned transgenders from joining the military? Isn’t that discrimination?
    Trey Gowdy’s Response:
    “Nobody has a right to serve in the Military. Nobody! What makes you people think the Military is an equal opportunity employer? It is very far from it – and for good reasons – let me cite a few.
    The Military uses prejudice regularly and consistently to deny citizens from joining for being too old or too young, too fat or too skinny, too tall or too short. Citizens are denied for having flat feet, or for missing or additional fingers.”
    He went on to explain: “By the way, poor eyesight will disqualify you, as well as bad teeth. Malnourished? Drug addiction? Bad back? Criminal history? Low IQ? Anxiety? Phobias? Hearing damage? Six arms? Hear voices in your head? Self-identification as a Unicorn? Need a special access ramp for your wheelchair? Can’t run the required course in the required time? Can’t do the required number of push-ups? Not really a morning person? and refuse to get out of bed before noon? All can be legitimate reasons for denial.
    The Military has one job: Winning War. Anything else is a distraction and a liability. Did someone just scream, that isn’t fair? War is VERY unfair, there are no exceptions made for being special or challenged or socially wonderful. YOU must change yourself to meet Military standards and not the other way around.
    I say again: You don’t change the Military – you must change yourself. The Military is not about being fair, it is about taking advantage of others and about winning. The Military doesn’t need to accommodate anyone with special issues. The Military needs to Win Wars and keep our Country safe – PERIOD! If any of your personal issues are a liability that detract from readiness, Thank you for applying and good luck in future endeavors.
    Any other questions?

  10. Ellen,has taken a walk on the wild side, are you concerned you cannot join? You do not have the character or discipline to be in our armed forces you lack the code of conduct. Stay in your liberal hollywood sewer. USAF veteran.

  11. People who want transgender sugeries should pay for it themselves.. It is not up to taxpayers to pay for it. It is your choice you pay. Any other cosmetic surgeries are NOT covered by insurance so why should that be.. You be what you want to be but don’t expect the rest of us to pay for it and don’t expect us to truly believe that with your confusion of who you are are you really mentally capable of serving.

  12. I don’t understand why they have to tell and/or say anything? If you sign up as your bio gender, pass all the tests, sever your time and get out! From what I have researched and heard about Trans people, they go thru a long process of changes, so how is this conducive to the Military as the Military rejects people with medical issues regularly? You can’t join and then expect down time to complete your Transfer, that is ludicrous? The Military is no place for Social Justice experiments! Common Sense needs to prevail! Obama should be prosecuted for what he did to our Military during his tenure, his Rules of Engagement and the Beau Bergdah issue left a bad taste with many!

  13. Hollywood, pro-athletes, professional singers and now three Muslims who got into our country for who knows why and now they got everyone in their party cow towing. Why not just give them positions in our highest level of security.

  14. Hey Ellen Generousness, sit down and shut up. You know as much about the military as the rest of us know about brain surgery. I served in the Navel Amphibious Forces. I gave a piece of my life and some body parts defending this Country. I would do it again if I could. Women on warships are a distraction. You know as much about the military as the rest of know about brain surgery. Just sit down and shut up.

  15. The purpose of our military is to kill people and break things. Social experimentation should be left to Jerry Springer, Dr Phil, and other shrinks.

  16. TWIT OR TWAT..Which are you? I can’t get Lasik eye surgery done because it is considered cosmetic..not covered! So I would think that a sex change operation is cosmetic.. if you want to serve GET IT DONE ON YOUR DIME.. NOT MINE and while your at it get some MENTAL HEALTH COUNSELING because it is OBVIOUS that you have a loose screw in your head!!

  18. Some of the transgenders are using the Military as free surgery for them. This is not the place for them if they are not committed to serving as a soldier. NO PAYING FOR THEIR SURGERIES. PERIOD.

  19. another reason not to care about what this “woman” has an opinion about! these people do not belong in United States Military! they need HELP! they definitely should not have health care to pay for their “transformation” to sex they want to become! Ellen is a HATEFUL person & people should see who sponsors her show & contact them & let them know you won’t be supporting their businesses if they keep supporting Ellen!

  20. Ellen is nothing more than a washed up old hag. Her opinions on anything are worth less than a morning s**t that gets flushed down the toilet. She forces that phony surprised look on her wrinkled old face that is sickening. She ought to go and suck on Fishsmell Obama’s dick if she likes transjerkoffs so much. Die in hell, you freak!

  21. I spent 6 months aboard and LST in the mediteraean as part of a reiforced battalion of marines.
    I slept on canva cot 5 high that just barely had room to turn over after you got in.
    Haff the time when i could I would sleep on steel deck topside.
    It was miserable way tolive Now you liberal MFers want to make it worse forcingus to live cheek to jowl with queers and bent genders. You liberal scumbags are heade for civil war and now is the time, while we have apresident that will keep the militray on their bases while we take care of the liberal dem bloodsuckers problem once and for all, all of the,

  22. have a homogenized and baby dictator in the white house is both disgusting and in American. this need to stop now as other counties are ashamed of us and are not our allies. a ugly orange old turd businessman washed up reality star is making America an eyesore and embarrassment. so many weak cowards that are under this devils spell. how much more are you going to let go on as it isn’t a joke anymore. he is insane, power hungry,self absorsorbed with a tool that needs to be taken from this unstable child before it really is too late. wake up and really make our great country that is in trouble really greater .

  23. absolutly the right desicion. people who are not sure of their gender and insist that they are the opposite , common sense indicates that they suffer from a mental condition,how is anybody supposed to trust these people with lets say,NUCLEAR WEAPONS if they areMENTALY UNSTABLE?? also it places the BLOODSUPPLY inGEOPARDY of the HIV/AIDS VIRUS heterosexual troops deserve the right to know that the trooper next to him /her,is mentaly capable of doing its duty and not freak out in a combat situation
    and certanly it makes them /us unconfortable in a open shower situation knowing that theres next to you someone that is a homosexual and all that it represents. i believe if they must to serve then activate their own battalions if there are enough of them separate from the rest….

  24. I agree with Jerry and Steve. The military should attack her! She loves that almighty dollar……not this country. God knows her heart and is watching her. He doesn’t miss a thing!

  25. If you are a male then you have to dress, act, and not kiss your lover in public, grab his or her butt while on duty. When you are on liberty or off base then you can do what ever you want the Military can’t do shit!!. I was in the Navy for 25 years and never ran into a Gay person on base or knew one. Transgender should just get a life and quit being stupid and helping the Feminist movement and trying to bring down our Military. You are born a man or woman don’t push the buttons and making your life harder, just go with the flow.
