Fox host: ‘Allowing gays makes the military like lab rats, which is why Putin invaded Ukraine’

  • Halou

    Oliver North, the guy who was complicit in giving weapons to America’s favorite ally, Iran. Yeah, he really is the guy you want to listen to for foreign policy and military priorities.

  • Pet

    Gimme a break! This is beyond stupidy.

  • krystalkleer

    like anyone but CASPER crusade’n right wing nutcases listen to anything on FAUX news!

  • Cal

    What a poisonous jerk. Anti-Gay = fight against slavery? It amazes me how anyone can twist things 180º like that.

  • Jones

    The crisis in Ukraine is because of someone who is killing gays not the gays themselves.

  • That There Other David

    I wondered how long it would take for some crazy to make this our fault.

  • soapbubble

    As Halou says bbelow, this corrupt dick6head was exposed during the Regan presidency. Some fine upstanding “moral” member of the US military he is! Bloody idiot. Fox “News”.What a joke.

  • Hue-Man

    Only PN and Faux News would ignore his criminal past. wiki: “North came into the public spotlight as a result of his participation in the Iran–Contra affair, a political scandal during the Reagan Administration, in which he claimed partial responsibility for the sale of weapons via intermediaries to Iran, with the profits being channeled to the Contras in Nicaragua. It was alleged that he was responsible for the
    establishment of a covert network, which subsequently funneled those
    funds to the Contras.”

    And everything he says MUST be true: “During the hearings, North admitted that he had lied to Congress previously, for which and other actions, he was later charged.”

  • H. V. Tiller

    So much trash in The US ! Why didn’t he start as a street cleaner ? He would have had a wonderful career.

  • George Penfold

    Why are mad people listened to in the USA, over here in the United Kingdom he would still be in prison or a mental hostpital.

    • docMfan

      Yes, he rather puts the UKIP fruitcakes in the shade.

  • Jesus_Mohammed

    Extraordinary! Trouble in Ukraine is linked by this bigot to treating gay soldiers with dignity and respect. This person deserves widespread humiliation for such an appalling statement.

    • Truth

      Sadly, bigot skin is as thick as that of a rhino ….

  • white squirrel

    another right winger/christian [ bound to be a xian] nut job
    unable to do joined up thinking

  • Truth

    Surely, mental derangement is a prerequisite for hosting on Fox ….?

  • Mark Y

    He’d vote UKIP if he lived in the UK.

  • Ivan

    I always give the benefit of the doubt that there are people on the Right who are intelligent and educated and simply have some different points of view.

    Then I hear a fool like this and I wonder if I’m being way too generous.

    • Truth

      Trust me – you are!

  • labman57

    Ollie “Reagan’s Folly” North said that allowing gays to openly serve has made the military ‘laboratory rats in some radical social experiment’ …

    Not surprising.
    Most conservatives still regard ‘electing a multi-ethnic person as POTUS’ to be a “radical social experiment”.

  • jlvnv

    Oliver North? Giving an opinion? Commenting on morality?

    Holy crap!

  • I envy the PinkNews person or staff responsible for monitoring FOX news. It must be the most fun job I could imagine, having surprises every day. The comedians, here in the US, don’t have to write their own material, they just read/show news articles from FOX.

    According to Forbes (, “Results showed that viewers of Sunday morning news shows were the most informed about current events, while Fox News viewers were the least informed. In fact, FDU poll results showed they were even less informed than those who say they don’t watch any news at all.”

    Jon Stewart on “The Daily Show” (watch it at likes political humor and most comes from FOX.
